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.

The story was set for a teen/ young reader's audience but any age can enjoy the plot twists and descriptive nature of this books. Some twists were more obvious than others while some connections seemed a little muddy (Simon's character seems to be all over the place). Clare has rhythmic tone to her writing which Moore matches with her reading. However there were moments that Moore did not fully catch the spirit of a character, which I especially felt with Jayce and Simon. Moments that should of been funny came off as contrived or uncomfortable. Overall it was good listen and I couldn't wait to know what happened next.
Loovveeddd it! so many suspicions confirmed in this book. love the drama, the "magic". I really enjoy all the characters and seeing the different sides reluctantly interact.
Great story and very enjoyable narrator. She's great at creating different voices for each character and bringing the story to life. I recommend this story to anyone twelve and up looking for a fun teen action/love story/fantasy.
Natalie Moore was a great narrator, I loved her tone and reading style. Definitely my favorite book in series thus far.
This book is a continuation of the previous novel. The truth of who is the father is cleverly included and revealed. I highly recommend this book! I can't wait to start on the next book!!!!
Single mother of 4 children, love to read /listen to books. Love mystery, supernatural, and romance.
Absolutely adored the whole series. An amazing story filled with love, loss, and undying trust. An epic tale of forbidden love that had me never wanting to stop listening. Cassandra Flare is most definitely without doubt one of my absolutely favorite authors. She has an imagination that one can not help but envy.
