The Mortal Instruments 6: City of Heavenly Fire
The Mortal Instruments 6: City of Heavenly Fire

2.0 out of 5 stars A sad, grasping ending from CC, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book made me want to cry for all the wrong reasons - what started out as a great series with engaging characters and clever plot twists has become a poorly written fan fiction with no excitement or momentum. This series should have been left as a trilogy, and while I plodded dutifully through this "grand finale", there was no real suspense (leading up to a dull, highly predictable ending) and the constant referencing to CC's other book series is nothing but a poorly disguised ad to make more money. Not only grasping, but leaves a sour taste in the mouth and a mind wondering when CC will stop plugging the only idea she's ever had, having turned it into 3 series.
A series which after the third book spiraled downward quickly, this crashed and burned in conclusion.

1.0 out of 5 stars An over-exaggerated, ridiculous waste of time, 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whatever promise this novel held to begin with was destroyed within mere chapters as the main character Suzette quickly revealed herself to be a weak and pathetic ninny, without a brain or personality. Not worth the time it took to download.

3.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining novel which sadly lost momentum, 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although I was thoroughly captivated for the first half of this novel, it sadly lost momentum through the second half and I began to find both characters a little whiny, their stories repetitive and stationary. A bit disappointing considering the excellent start.

3.0 out of 5 stars An average novel lacking personality, 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Though an interesting concept which had me hooked for the first 50 pages, the plot was achingly familiar and predictable - no surprises, twists or real personality to the novel, with conventional characters and not so subtle hints for the ending sledgehammered into every page.
Read once and found this novel just fine for a rainy afternoon, however unlikely to read again.
