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 Times bestselling trilogy The Mortal Instruments.
drey's thoughts:
This final book in Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments trilogy rounds up all the likely suspects and throws 'em in the pit to duke it out. Along the way we get (surprise!) revelations galore, bad guys sprouting out of the shadows, and love standing on the edge of a coin. Heads you win, tails you lose.

Some of it's a bit predictable, but the story's still enjoyable. I really enjoyed Clary, and the relationship she has with her BFF, Simon. Things are different from the way the wanted it to work, but that doesn't stop these two from trying to figure out how to win against that nutjob Valentine. Pick it up if you're looking for a quick series to pass the time with.
