City of Glass - The Mortal Instruments Book Three

by Cassandra Clare

Dedication: "For My Mother. 'I only count the hours that shine.'"

First paragraph: "The cold snap of the previous week was over; the sun was shining brightly as Clary hurried across Luke's dusty front yard, the hood of her jacket up to keep her hair from blowing across her face. The weather might have warmed up, but the wind off the East River could still be brutal. It carried with it a faint chemical smell, mixed with the Brooklyn smell of asphalt, gasoline, and burned sugar from the abandoned factory down the street."

Review: This is the final book in The Mortal Instruments series and just like the two books before it, it keeps you captivated throughout the whole thing.

The language used is addictive and the storyline is full of action, romance, and twists at every turn. I was stuck from the moment I read the first word.

The story continues on Clary's quest to defeat the power hungry Valentine and face the many demons he has unleashed along the way. You learn to love the characters and your heart breaks with theirs and rejoices with their victories along the way.

I would definitely suggest this book to anyone who enjoys a little fantasy, adventure, and romance.
