Publisher's Summary

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 best-selling trilogy The Mortal Instruments.

Listen to the rest of the Mortal Instruments series.

    "Captured me from the start"

    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!

    "One of my Top Five Favorites!!"

    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.

    "LOVED IT - A Must Read!"

    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!!!

    "Not perfect, still enjoyable"

    It does advance the Shadowhunter story in interesting ways. The author could spend less time beating on certain aspects of the story-there are places where it seemed like more time could have been spent in editing and refining a good story. The reader...then one who read the first book was better. Thus reader muddled voices and mispronounced words so much that it became distracting! There was little differentiation between certain characters, especially the male characters.

    "Great book terrible narration job"

    I love the books I've read them before but I was terribly disappointed in the narration. Natalie Moore (the person who narrated the first three) was great! I unlike most people don't mind Ed-What's His Name mainly because he also narrated the infernal devices audio books but it makes sense there because Jem and Will and such are actually SUPOSE to have a British accent!

    "Another Unforgetable tale"

    I can't get enough of the shadowhunters and each scene and plot twist kept me at the edge of my seat. I officially wish I was a shadowhunter myself!!

    "I Hate Not Finishing Things"
    Would you try another book from Cassandra Clare and/or Natalie Moore?

    I am gonna finish The Mortal Instruments Series only because I don't like not finishing things.


    Has City of Glass turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No just from the author and narrator


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different narrator without valley girl nasally voice


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Theme/Story is good the writing is not


    Any additional comments?

    I wish the author would have moved past the previous assumptions of Jace's parentage and let Claire and Jace find happiness in each other while the rest of the world crumbles instead of making Jace constantly pushing claire away and Claire pushing Jace away for the entire series thus far. Their relationship should have been a constant in this series not in a sad destructive annoying constant but a constant breathe of fresh air in the midst of a world full of downworlders demons and shadowhunters.
