CITY OF GLASS by Cassandra Clare


About CITY OF GLASS (taken from

To save her mother’s life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters – never mind that entering 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 Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters 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?


This book was  crazy. It’s going to be really hard not to write spoilers. Finally, everything is explained. There were so many things that I was guessing and it was fun to see if I was right. All the characters grow so much during this book. Jace grows the most and I’m really happy with how his character turned out. He struggled a lot in this book but seemes to turn out ok in the end. Clary grew the least but I don’t think she needed to grow anymore in this book. She’s still a very strong character and doesn’t let anything or anyone stop her from what she wants to do. All the characters are at a really good point I think.

I found there were a lot of cheesy moments in this book, which was unfortunate. A little bit I could deal with, but a lot bothers me. I was able to get over it though but I really enjoyed the plot to this book. This book is  a lot more serious than the others because this is the end and there’s a big battle and whatnot. The same with any other series. You go through so many different emotions during this book. Probably because it was meant to be the last book (and it should have been the last book).

I realize there is a lot of hate for this series as well as a lot of good reviews. I think it’s one of those books that you either really love or really hate. There’s no in between. I encourage everyone to try out this series. At least make it to this book and if you don’t like it that’s cool. I personally like this series at this point and I hope you guys will too!

5 out of 5

“There is no pretending,” Jace said with absolute clarity. “I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I’ll love you then.”

  1. I have just recently starting reading this series and am in love! But I have heard some not so good reviews about the next book in this series, so I am curious to see whether you have read it? and liked it?
    I agree with what you were saying about the cheesy moments. I felt like they were repetitive and although sweet, sort of okayish at the same time.

    • I’ll review the next book as soon as I can then! Just for you! It’s not as bad as everyone says though. I mean she should have stopped writing but it’s not a bad book.
