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.

    "Getting even more intense and action packed"
    What made the experience of listening to City of Glass the most enjoyable?

    that I could listen to it on the bus and not get motion sick because it wasn't in book form.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Cassandra Clare? Why or why not?

    yes, although I thought the story could end here I don't mind continuing to read the next book up in line in the series.


    What aspect of Natalie Moore’s performance would you have changed?

    how flat her voice is.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    yes

    "The Best Book So far"
    Would you consider the audio edition of City of Glass to be better than the print version?

    Certainly! Natalie Moore's performance gave life to the story!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Definitely a tear jerker -- the reader will definitely suffer the loss of loved characters.


    Any additional comments?

    From the moment book three starts it is takes the reader on an action packed adventure to the very end. I love how book three dives into depths unexplored before in the other two books by telling the story through not only the lead characters' point of view but supporting characters as well. Definitely sparking emotions that make City of Glass worth the read or listen.

    "Great narrator!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of City of Glass to be better than the print version?

    I think both are great. I find audio books to be a great companion to the physical books.


    Any additional comments?

    Natalie Moore is such a great narrator! She is clear and has great diction and acting. Wonderful. Wish she had done all of the books in the mortal instruments series.

    "I'm glad it didn't end here"

    This series definitely doesn't disappoint, if anything it's getting better with each book.
    City of Glass picks up exactly where City of Ashes left off - Clary rushing off to Idris to find a magical cure for her mother. Cassandra Clare has a way with words, she describes everything in such a manner that there is an incredible amount of detail with there being too much. You can actually picture the things she describes, but it's not an overwhelming annoying detailed list like a few authors I've read. It's somehow perfect.
    Clary and Jace both annoyed me at times with the apparent blindness they have for each others feelings, Simon is finally becoming a man now that he actually will never look like one, and the other characters are growing in the background as well. I wasn't surprised when the truth came out, but it did make me feel better that it was finally in print for everyone to read.
    There are tons of twists and turns in this book, plenty of action and emotion, and if there series were to end now it would be a good trilogy, with a few loose ends as possibilities.
    Luckily for us, she continued writing! I can't wait to start the next book.

    What made the experience of listening to City of Glass the most enjoyable?

    Decent narrator


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Luke - badass, smart and caring. Great combination. Plus he didn't have teenage angst like the rest of the characters

    Loved the narrator, loved the way she made the characters come alive and made me feel as if I could still imagine the characters from my own point of view.

    "Couldn't Wait. Can't Finish."
    What did you love best about City of Glass?

    That they finally figured out what I'd been screaming at them from the beginning.


    What other book might you compare City of Glass to and why?

    The beautiful creatures series. Both series are a decent read I just don't feel that compulsion to read the next one. They are what I call 'filler books'. Read them till the book you want comes out.


    What three words best describe Natalie Moore’s performance?

    Accurate. Emphatic. Teenage.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I find the short stories about this world much more entertaining.

    "Get on With it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If they have read the previous Mortal Instruments books, yes I would...for closure.


    If you’ve listened to books by Cassandra Clare before, how does this one compare?

    This was my least favorite of the Mortal Instruments books. Conversations kept getting interrupted by someone's death, or screaming, or attack, or just somebody else walking into the room. Things went on unresolved and unknown by the main characters for way too long. There is such a thing as being too detailed...get to the point! I mean, how long can you hold a sword to someone's chest and discuss their death?


    Which character – as performed by Natalie Moore – was your favorite?

    Natalie did a good job capturing Simon's character.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It's only 2 hours.

    If you could sum up City of Glass in three words, what would they be?

    sequel with stamina


    What other book might you compare City of Glass to and why?

    I've not read another like this. I don't usually read NF.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't tell you without giving away the most important answer.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    See above
