To save her mother's life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters -- never mind that enter-ing 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 Shadow-hunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadow-hunters 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 final installment of the New York Timesbestselling trilogy The Mortal Instruments.

Wow, just__wow.

Once again, I didn't care for this book that much in the beginning, I was really exited to read it and all, but I just got bored all the time and... blah. But towards the middle...wow. Action, action, action, all the time. Sometimes I had to stop to catch my breath and really think over what just happened to take it all in. 

I don't feel like talking about the main characters much  because they're just as awesome as ever, but, just as in CoA, Magus Bane develops alot as a character. 

There was, however, a new main character for this book. His name is Sebastian Verlac and he is cousin with a very good friend of the Lightwoods.
From the first time I "met" him (haha) he just reeked of confidence. Clary's first impression of him was pretty normal. She did think he was handsome and all but the first time he appeared in the book I didn't think he would play a big part in the story just because of Clary's very normal not-so-big-of-a-deal-impression of him, but he sure did. He's on the cover aswell :)

Summary of review:
City of Glass by Cassandra Clare is filled with exitement, love, mystery, romance.

 The reader will find him-or herself enchanted by Cassandra Clares magical writing, exiting plots and lovable characters.

The twists and turns Ms Clare puts her readers through is close to unbearable. She always takes the turn you do not expect her to take and puts her characters in situations one would only dream of. (Or have nightmares about ...)
