City of Glass: The Mortal Instruments, Book 3

To save her mother's life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters - never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death.

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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Who's who? Who knows."
    Would you consider the audio edition of City of Glass to be better than the print version?

    I guess so, since I don't have time to read actual print books, audiobooks allows me to get caught up with everything I've ever wanted to read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like how useless Clary is NOT. It's nice that the main female character isn't stupid and just there for the ride. She has goals and skills and flaws.


    What does Natalie Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Umm well her reading the story allowed me to go to bed early since I wasn't reading the print book itself, since I don't have time? These questions are getting silly.


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

    This book also made me laugh. Occasionally it also made me gasp in surprise. It's a good story.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the movie does well in the theaters. I'd love to see the rest of the series on film.

    "Oh my ..."

    Natalie Moore is an outstanding performer! I think I can honestly say that she made this entire book worth listening too. City of Glass picks up right where the strange City of Ashes left off. The same complex web of relationships is further expanded with the introduction of a new villain, Sebastian (the real Jonathan) and finally Jace and Clary find themselves in a situation where they are free to love one another. I know that there are more books to come in the series but I little reluctant to continue. There was a lot happening in this novel and most of the loose ends except for Sebastian’s death have been tied up. Over all, lots of adventure, good twists and pretty complicated story line. I try not to judge YA books too harshly but I don’t feel this series is appropriate for children under 15.

    "another good addition to the series"

    Book 3 of the Mortal Instruments is another good addition to the series and I thought Casandra Clare could have stopped with book 3, leaving the series as a trilogy with out leaving any loose ends.

    "Fun and exciting new story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would and have recommeded this book to friends. It is a very fun read and gives a new twist on vampires and werewolves, while introducing us to the Shadow Hunter. This series has kept me excited and aching for the next book. I can't wait until the movies come out!


    What did you like best about this story?

    What usually draws me into a book is the characters. I really love the characters in this book and actually feel like I know them. Their relationships with each other are profound and allow the reader to feel as if they are actually apart of the story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I'm not sure if I can pick my favorite scene, but I think one of the coolest parts is when Clary discoveries her ability to create new runes of power.


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

    yes! I had a hard time stopping. I usually listen while I clean, and I can definitely say I was finding excuses to clean my home more often. My husband loved it:)
