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.

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.
Yes, because Cassandra Clare is a wonderful author. Her books are amanzing, has funny, action, love... thriller and secrets. I'm loving follow this serie
This is hard to say... I like Jace, but sometimes he is a jerk. I like Clare, but she is idiot. Simon is boring, but necessary. Magnus is... I don't know at he is yet. All the character has moments that i liked and not like so much.
Yes, I listening other books perfomance by Nathalie Moore, and I find great. I like her voice, and her style of telling a story.
I don't think so.

If you like the first 2 you'll love this one! It's stellar! Keep listening/reading on my friends of the mundi world.
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.
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.
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.
This book also made me laugh. Occasionally it also made me gasp in surprise. It's a good story.
I hope the movie does well in the theaters. I'd love to see the rest of the series on film.
Great to listen to. It was a natural performance. i didnt feel like i was being read to.
I laughed and cried but mostly cried.
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.
On the very top!
The battle going on at the end.
Yes, she is my favorite narrator and this is performance was one of her best!
From start to end this book holds your attention. I look forward to listening to this many times in the future!
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.
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 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.
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.
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:)
