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 best-selling trilogy The Mortal Instruments.
Listen to the rest of the Mortal Instruments series.

Say something about yourself!
Hmmm...no. I like them both equally, but audio versions are great & easier to revisit prior to the next installment being released so you can refresh your memory.
I love Clary in this book because she is so brave and determined.
This book was so intriguing from the get go. I couldn't put it down! Listened to all 4 books of the series in a week- I couldn't stop listening!
So, what do you get when you take a 16 year old New York girl and her family and friends, and throw her into a supernatural world full of action and adventure?? You get this wonderful series, unlike anything I've read, but similar enough that I feel right at home with it's crazy elements. Narrator on the first one is too young (they call this YA, but I don't think so), the second book is better, but this one is hands down the BEST. Hated to finish it-- in three days!! If you like supernatural and romance stuff without crappy over used sex scenes, then you will love this series.
All I can say is this series is perfect. Better than any fantasy/sci-fi (yes, including Twilight) and I CANNOT WAIT for the film and the next book. A must read!!!
the book is too romantic, I think that is all about Clary and Jace. Everybody accepted the tail that Valentin was telling them, whiteout proof.
I enjoyed reading the past two books, but I was disappointed.
I like the voce of the reading
I love The Mortal Instruments book series. Book 2 & 3 are perfectly narrated to stay true to the characters accents and personalities.
Unfortunately all the other audiobooks in this series do not use the same narrator or pay attention to the story at all. They use British narrators for Simon (who is from Brooklyn) , Jace, Alec and Isabelle. All grew up in NYC!
Please, please re-record those books to have consistency! I can't listen to the others they are so distractingly off character. These are bestselling books and their fans deserve to get an audiobook experience as great as the books are.
Just finished listening to this for the third time. Have read or listened to the whole series twice before. It's a story that you can return to over and over again.
