To save her mother's life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters -- never mind that enter-ing the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.

As Clary uncovers more about her family's past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadow-hunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadow-hunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he's willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City -- whatever the cost?


Cassandra Clare continues to surprise me in the 3rd book of the Mortal Instruments series. More plot twists, amazing writing, intense moments, war, love, family. The war against Valentine is coming, and it's more intense and gripping than ever.


Valentine is a Shadowhunter, a Shadowhunter that is using demons in the war against the Clave and every Shadowhunter in Idris. Many lives are lost, including Max Lightwood's and Hodge's. Angels are summoned, and released from misery. And Jace and Clary finally find out the truth about their relations.

Ok, if you don't want to spoil the book you can read now :)

Anyway, the book is really good. I hope the rest of the series is just as good as the first three books. Cassandra Clare is doing a fabulous job so far, let's hope she can keep it up!

The plot is amazing, as it has been, and the writing is good! Pretty much nothing has changed -- it's still amazing -- except the plot has a little more twists and turns.
