To save her mother's life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters—never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.

As Clary uncovers more about her family's past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he's willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City—whatever the cost?

Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the third installment of bestselling series the Mortal Instruments.

Includes an exclusive sneak peek of the fourth book in the Mortal Instruments series: City of Fallen Angels! And don't miss the teaser from Clockwork Angel, the first book in the Infernal Devices trilogy, the prequel to the Mortal Instruments series.


I must confess that my expectations for this book were very high. From what I had already read on the other two, I was starved for the answers to all mysteries that seemed never to arrive...
Well, they finally arrived with this fantastic third volume!
I do not know about you but for me the saga was getting better with each passing volume.
In thie one the author finally unveils the mysteries that haunted us during the two previous volumes in phenomenal shape, and finally allows us to conclude a mental puzzle with the main points of the plot, giving us a more global view of the fantastic world of the Shadow Hunters.
I loved the character development and the perfect outcome for Jace and Clary. I fully agree with the author when she says that this book is the most romantic of all, has heartbreaking moments that really lead us to tears, but the happy ending of Jace and Clary made them worth it.
I would like to highlight Clary that became in this book definitely my favorite, from a girl seemingly fragile she became a heroine full of guts and courage that can even be an example for the young readers of the author and not the only... Alongside it, also the secondary characters were very well developed, but undoubtedly another highlight must go to the approach to the character of Magus ans his hilarious personality...
As in the other books the action moves with a cinemitical speed, and the final battle is truly epic.
The ending was just perfect. I could not ask more of this book. I can only say that I will miss these characters.
