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.

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.

**SPOILERS**

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."

This was a brilliant book and I can't wait to start the next one (immediately after writing my review).

It was funny, imaginative, sad and even had me on the edge of my seat a few times.

Cassandra has a wonderful style of writing that completely draws you in and keeps you there.

I want to know how the story ends but I do not want to stop reading these wonderful tales.

Brilliant book(s) I would recommend them to anyone of all ages.

These characters have grown over the last three books, as has Simon, who's turning into an interesting character.
There's tragedy and romance and not just for the main characters.
We learn more about the history of the angels and their interaction with humans.
An interesting world to read about.
