Soon Clary, Jace and Simon discover that Clary's actions in CITY OF GLASS have set in motion a horrific chain of events that threaten everything and everyone she loves.
Cassandra Clare's follow-up to the successful MORTAL INSTRUMENTS TRILOGY ties together unresolved plot strands from CITY OF GLASS with elements from THE CLOCKWORK ANGEL (the first her Victorian era prequel trilogy). It's an ambitious book with a large cast and a lot to pack in, but the story (for the most part) cracks on at a fast pace and I liked the way Clare interwove elements from the other books (which you need to read to get the most out of this) but there were some clunky moments of exposition, which deadened the pace.
My problem with the series has always been Jace, who I found too arrogant to care about. Here he's more vulnerable as he's forced to confront his feelings for Clary and his fear of losing her, although the device used to convey this is hackneyed and I never believed in his refusal to explain to her what's happening (or her refusal to press him on it, instead assuming the worst).Read more ›
COFA is a complex story compared to the previous three. There is so much going on with lots of little subplots and individual character stories. I particularly enjoyed Simon's story this time; he became much more integral and I was really invested in what he was doing. I desperately hated some of his decisions but I love a book that makes me feel those kind of emotions.
I think with book four Clare has actually upped her game. Because there is so much going on this time, we are actually introduced to a whole new set of characters each with their own role tying in nicely. This big cast did cause me a bit of trouble to begin with, it was tricky to keep up with all the names when we already have a pretty complex set of minor characters to remember. These additional characters were interesting though and I enjoyed having a bit more insight into the different creature communities.
So, although I enjoyed this book perhaps more than the previous three, I did find that Clare just unloaded tons of new information at us. Sometimes, because there was so much to tell us, it seemed like she would write full paragraphs of new information and just throw them in whenever she had the opportunity.Read more ›
The love between clary and Jace is stronger than ever and continues to grow stronger ever minute. With the battle over and everyone home things are good but there are cracks in the perfect world. clary can tell that there is something wrong with Jace and they see less of each other and it has an effect on them both. Isabelle and the rest of her family are finding it hard to live without max.

The story has twists and turns as Jace and clary try to find out what is wrong with Jace and how they can fix it so he can be with her again what leads to Simon, clary and Jace getting hurt and the return of someone who was thought to be dead.

It was okay. I think after book 3 the story lost its touch although its interesting where they are taking this and once i start reading a series i have to see the end.Published 1 day ago by Annie
I feel since the first book, each book after has got worse. Clary and Jace's whatever they have is dragged out and pratically done in every teen romance, it's frustrating, boring... Read morePublished 10 days ago by emma chivers
