Genre(s): Young Adult (YA), Fantasy, Paranormal
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 her best friend, 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 final installment of the New York Times bestselling The Mortal Instruments.
BEFORE READING THIS BOOK:
Ricky Bobby: Dear Lord baby Jesus, lyin' there in your ghost manger, just lookin' at your Baby Einstein developmental videos, learnin' 'bout shapes and colors. I would like to thank you for bringin' Clary and Jace together, in an un-insestual manner, and also that kids reading this no longer sound like retarded-gang-banger-Jerry Springer's Uncensored Naughty Nightmares-and-such.

Ricky Bobby: SHUT UP Clare...you just....you just Shut-Up! You sick, sons of breeches. I mean you walk in that door, on your 6 book Trilogy... all fat and cocky and lookin at me in my chair. And you tell me its all in my head? I hope that both of you have sons... Handsome, beautiful, articulate sons, who are talented and star athletes with the same name, Jonathan Christopher, and they have their wives taken away because they really their sisters kinda sorta. I mean I pray you know that pain and that hurt.
