SPOILER ALERT: This is the third book in a series and therefore may reveal things that are discussed in the first and second book.
Synopsis (Taken from Goodreads)
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?
Okay my original warning is not strong enough this review is choc-a-block full of spoilers!
THEY’RE NOT RELATED!!! OMFG I couldn’t be happier about this revelation! Seriously! Team ClaryxJace 5EVER. Excuse my outburst … but I’m completely thrilled by this reveal in the third book! I was totally smitten with this pairing in the first novel and to have it taken away was just beyond upsetting. To have it back is like Christmas come early! Especially with 3 more books left to read and a possible sequel!!
This book is a good one for couples! Magnus and Alec finally resolve their secrets and Alec accepts himself for who he is! AND TALK ABOUT LOVE, Jocelyn and Luke!!! <3 I’m just totally fangirling in this review and I don’t even care!
A couple of things I do want to talk about though is that this book definitely made up for the repetitive structure leading up to now since it had a lot of character development, heaps of it.
I’m a bit sad that Ithuriel died, there were so many things that could have been asked and answered but alas I’m sure Clare has her reasons. What I’m very interested in is how she intends to plot the next three novels in the series! Who’s going to be the bad guy now that Valentine is out of the picture!
