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 ›
Also it is going to be made into a TV series so get reading people! Its gonna be amazing!
Great cliffhanger for the next in series
I have so many emotions in me that I can't breathe. Have and Clary are now together, something is wrong with Jace and he needs the silent brothers help. Cleary's mother is taking phone call' s from a nurse and there are babies that are dying and on top of that Simon has the attention of someone and with the mark of Cain on his head he finds out what it really can do.
And also, his roommate is a werewolf.
I loved the banter in this book and the way Jace has to protect Simon. It's such a great book.
The ending? The ending is left on a clifhanger. And what a clifhanger it is. OMG can this series get any better :-)
Next book is number 5 and although I want to read it, I also feel there is a little sadness within me. I like the characters very much but I'm hoping the next book focuses on much more than just a handful of people. I need to be drawn in like the others books managed to do.
Book 6 is released in 2014 and I thought I would buy it immediately BUT now it all depends upon this next stage of the story. Cassandra has to pull something special out of the bag this time to make me want to purchase another book. Maybe author's lose their way when they are reaching the end of a series or maybe every book just cannot be brilliant every time.
