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.

that I could listen to it on the bus and not get motion sick because it wasn't in book form.
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.
how flat her voice is.
Mother. Artistic. Dreamer. Loves fiercely.
Certainly! Natalie Moore's performance gave life to the story!
Definitely a tear jerker -- the reader will definitely suffer the loss of loved characters.
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.
I think both are great. I find audio books to be a great companion to the physical books.
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.
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.
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.
That they finally figured out what I'd been screaming at them from the beginning.
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.
Accurate. Emphatic. Teenage.
I find the short stories about this world much more entertaining.
I've enjoyed having the same narrator throughout the series.
I'm not sure. It's a book of its own.
Social sci-fi, vampires, and modern detective thrillers, oh my!
If they have read the previous Mortal Instruments books, yes I would...for closure.
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?
Natalie did a good job capturing Simon's character.
It's only 2 hours.
sequel with stamina
I've not read another like this. I don't usually read NF.
Can't tell you without giving away the most important answer.
