4.0 out of 5 stars Best of the bunch. 25 Aug 2013
By IzzieT
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I started shamefully read this on my kindle about two minutes after I finished the second book. It is much, much better than the second one - the story line seems better thought out and is explained better - in the previous installment I felt a bit like it went around in circles but didn't actually make itself very clear.

In the final book of the trilogy the Clave must decide whether to give in to Valentine's threat of opening up the demon world to destroy all those who are not 'pure' Shadowhunters - those who associate with werewolves, vampires or warlocks, and those who have corrupted the original mission of Shadowhunters (to destroy demons). He already has a magic sword and a magic cup, all he needs is to find the magic mirror and he can summon the original angel to grant him his wish - its up to the usual gang to try and stop him.

There are new characters in this book, some of which prove very important to the story's outcome! Whilst it is obviously a trashy teen romance that we all hate to love, this book definitely has a good story and is told really well. The whole romance thing between Clarry and Jace is obviously constantly at the heart of the book but I feel it is written about in a more tolerable manner with less of the awkward cringing awfulness that always ruins a fantastic story!

I was also worried that this book would end with a huge cliffhanger that would force me into reading the next "City of..." which would have really annoyed me (mainly because I was so hooked whilst reading this one that I stayed up all night reading it and never got any sleep...), but fortunately it has a definitive (happy!) ending so you can rest in peace knowing your somewhat embarrassing foray into the Shadowhunter teen fiction realm is at an end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked! 8 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ok, I know this is teenage fiction and I am far too old at 41 to be reading this series, but seriously I can't stop myself. I read the whole set in a week and then started to the clockwork set. Just lovely. Roll on the last instalment!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy 2 May 2013

I always thought that there was something odd about Clary and Jace... I won't spoil it for those who may not have read it but you'll find out soon enough. I'm glad I was right. Fantastic book and so much better than city of ashes. Even though that in itself was fantastic and I gave it four stars. City of bones I rated five just like this one. Obviously I'm on to book four now. Enjoy.

Review: Finally, some resolution & character growth! I was pleased to see Clary becoming a slightly stronger character, although I still found her slightly disappointing. I was also pleased that some of the issues about Jace were resolved.


I was especially pleased to see an end to the incest storyline which I really thought should have been resolved in the first book and was expecting to be resolved in the second. When they weren't sorted in the second I was beginning to think that he actually was her brother which really would have tainted the whole series for me. I could tell from reading this book that he wasn't going to be though and could see where the Sebastian story was going from quite early on.
I believe that this was initially meant to be a trilogy and I can see that this book definitely wrapped the original issues up nicely. There's still enough to keep me interested in reading though so I'll carry on.

Favourite character: Clary Fray

Quote: "I am a man" he told her, "and men do not consume pink beverages. Get thee gone woman, and bring me something brown."

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome 18 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can't promise this review will be spoiler free so don't read it if you haven't read it or the previous books in the series.

I absolutely loved this book. It tied up brilliantly the mortal instruments triology to a satisfying conclusion (although I am happy there will be more). I don't really know where to begin when writing this review as I don't want to spoil things for others and I can't criticise it at all so I'll just go through the things I loved about this book in no particular order.

I loved how the Jace/Clary story line played out. I serious love Jace and want him to be my secret boyfriend as he is gorgeous and I loved how the story played out for them. I know people are going to come back and say the whole thing is sick and twisted but you literally can't fight the chemistry these two have and I think the whole thing was dealt with well by Clare in this book.

I was so excited to see that Jocelyn is in this book. I loved how she entered the story and loved her interactions with both Clary and Luke.

The Magnus and Alec story line was awesome - I particularly enjoyed Maia's reaction to it (when you read it you'll see what I mean)

My heart broke a little bit for Max (and that is all I'm going to say on that front)

The scene with Valentine and the Inquistor was immense (as was the whole section of the story with the demon army. I was like "wow this cannot be happening" but it was and it was awesome.

I loved seeing the development of Clary as a character and particularly how she used her ability to creat runes to help when everything seems a bit hopeless.

Simon was awesome in this book. I love that boy.

Sebastian - all I can say is wow - that whole story line blew me away.
