(Image from Barnes & Noble)

City of Glass
Cassandra Clare

lurb: 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?

Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the third installment of bestselling series the Mortal Instruments. (from Barnes & Noble)

Length: Long - 541 pages

Notes: This is the third in the Mortal Instruments series. I really didn't love the first two books, but I guess I liked them enough to keep reading. This third book was definitely my favorite of the 3. It was kind of predictable, but it still had me turning the pages. The bad thing was that the second book must have not been that memorable, because I found myself struggling a few times to remember what happened in the second book. But I was able to put the pieces together for the most part, and I really enjoyed this book! There is a fourth book coming out April of next year, and I'm sure I'll want to read it then.

Random quote : "People aren't born good or bad. Maybe they're born with tendencies either way, but its the way you live your life that matters."
