My Review
My favorite book from the mortal instruments so far!
City of Glass is an action-packed and a breathtaking read. There’s so much action going on that I really enjoyed compared to the first two books.  All of my questions and the mysteries has been answered in this book which is great and it made me contented.
The other thing that I liked from this book is that there are emotional parts. Cassandra Clare did not focus only on the action-scenes and stuff but also she mixed it with other elements that made the book perfect. By reading this book we know that there are so many things that has been revealed such as [1]  Jace and Clary are not brother and sister after all which made me happy [2] Jace’s real father was Stephen Herondale and [3] Sebastian is the real Jonathan Christopher Morgenstern. I’m now even more excited to read the other books from TMI and also The Infernal Devices.
The ending was satisfying! They defeat Valentine and the shadowhunters and the downworlders help each other to fight and it is by the help of Clary’s power, she created a new rune for a shadowhunter to have a downworlder power and vice-versa. How cool is that?!
Since I’m reading the shadowhunter chronicles by publication date, I’m now looking forward to reading the first book from The Infernal Devices trilogy (A prequel to The Mortal Instruments) which is entitled Clockwork Angel.
Ratings: 5/5 Stars
