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.

    "Mispronunciations."

    The mispronunciations that seem to be present throughout the series- despite different readers- are annoying and distracting.
    Story is entertaining.

    "No voice change for different characters"

    Couldn't quite tell when the story was switching to another character's viewpoint, the narrator didn't change her voice. Other than that, A+

    "Fantastic series that sucks you in"

    I loved all of the Mortal Instrument books and enjoyed getting into the story a lot. Cassandra Clare managed to create a world which I could well picture in my mind and I couldn't wait to hear how the story continued.

    The readings of all books were very well and brought life into them. I had to get used to a new voice in a new book, but they all did a great job!

    "awesome"

    She is a spectacular writer. The story plot is easy to follow and get so involved in the reading and also the audio. The narrator was great.

    "Shallow"
    What disappointed you about City of Glass?

    very predictable and for a bunch of 14-16 year old teens a bit uncomfortable.

    "a great listen"

    I felt like the third book was the best of the first three. it took a while for the main arc of the story to tie the pieces together. nonetheless it was tied together pretty well. obviously we know who the main villain of the next books will be yet I don't mind knowing what the author has in store for our heroes.

    Good book, fun story line. The narrator was good. I just wish they would stop changing narrators with each book.

    "Great book!"

    I really enjoyed the continuing saga . The book was hard to stop listening to. There is plenty of intriguing moments in the storyline. Cassandra Clare has put together a wonderful fantasy series. This book is great for the YA readers as well as us older ones.

    "To YA"

    Read from May 12 to June 22, 2012

    Read/Listened for Fun
    Overall Rating: 3.50
    Story Rating: 3.75
    Character Rating: 3.25

    Audio Rating: 4.50 (not part of the overall rating)

    First thought when finished: The epilogue and Simon pretty much pulled the book out of the "2" category for me!

    What did I Love: I really love the richness of the world that Casandra Clare has created. She know how to bring elements in that makes it seem very familiar and yet it is something utterly unique. Simon was possibly my favorite character in City of Glass. He has come such a long way since book 1 and it is nice that he is embracing his vampire side. I also loved the epilogue. I felt that it pulled together all 3 books in a way that was believable and not over stated.

    What I Liked: Jace and Clary really kind of grew on me the 2nd half of City of Glass. I started to really like their spirit and spunk. I felt they both came into their own and really owned who they were. Plus I was glad that the storyline that I could not stand finally got tied up (though it still took to much of the book).

    What made me go huh?: I had a few problems with this book but they all seemed to resolve themselves in the 2nd half. I didn't like the bro/sis storyline and it just got creepier as it went on. Also, I have to admit not a fan of the parents (parental figures) letting the kids run all over them. I just don't like that particular story device. However, none of these would bug a huge fan of YA.

    Audio Rating: Narrated by Natalie Moore, the audio for the book is pretty well done. The pacing, accents, and pronunciations were delivered with ease. I will be continuing the series in audio. Running time was 15 hours 21 min.

    Final Thought: Fans of the series will love this for all the loose ends it ties up.
