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.

My daughter suggested Cassandra Clare's series, The Mortal Instruments. I read the first two in paper-back. OUTSTANDING witting by Cassandra Clare, and a great down-load. HIGHLY suggest this one, and the first two, as audio books!
I really enjoy this series of books. There is a little bit of everything in them and the action continues all though the book.
My only complaint with this book is the exact opposite of what I said above. There are long drawn out times of nothingness, filler if you will. If you can deal with the over description that takes place than this book is excellent.
This part of the story is all fantasy and action. The villain really shows his true colors and the heroes finally learn the truth about their past. It is a great finale, but i can see many future adventures. It's a must buy if you read the first two.
I enjoyed all of the Mortal Instruments books, while some parts do seem to be a bit over-explained (thoughts of the characters get very detailed & occasionally stray a bit), it is an enjoyable series. I found myself wanting the 4th book......but it looks like I will have to read the 'prequel' coming soon! I read these as I saw the author of TWILIGHT reads Cassandra's books, and that was intriguing enough (as I am always searching for new GOOD content to listen to!). Worth the listen!
I enjoyed the whole series. It's a youth book so some of the plots I saw coming a mile away, but the characters were great, the world Cassandra Clare created was interesting and over all its a solid series.
Overall a good read that I enjoyed, but the incestuous stuff kind of grosses me out. Plus, I'm not big on the fated love idea or that we can't control our emotions. Despite this, it's a fun, light, teenagery sort of escapist readd that's worth the credit. I'm not sure why the bad guy is kind of British, and I liked the original narrator better, but this one isn't bad. She doesn't add anything to it, but doesn't detract either.
While I generally love this series, I found this book to be pretty predictable. I had guessed early on many of the major things we find out in this book. I still to like the story though, so on to City of Falling Angels.
