Critic Reviews

"Clare continues her talent for mixing hip, modern humor with traditional fantasy, and fans eagerly awaiting the series conclusion should come away more than satisfied." (School Library Journal)

It should be in the YA genre but somehow suits all

Throughout the entire series I could not help thinking at 40ish this series was too young for me, then all at once something would happen and I was hooked again.

I would not say it was my favourite paranormal series off all time but was compelled to buy all books in the series to find out what happens and very pleased I did.

Well worth a listen, a very different take on the whole genre

Odd quirk

The different pronunciations of "Hugin/Hugo" did my head in, though I know it's spelt in those two ways in the books (which I never understood). Still loved it though.

Series of the year!

I’ve Been reading Cassandra Claire since April and wow. Whatn a epic extraordinary and amazing world. Never read anything like it before and am sadly disappointed to have just finished the very last book. Hopefully by now You’ve read the inferno dvices and first two books of the immortal instruments. If you’re stopping to check out reviews, it means your curious which also means you’ve been taken in by the shadow world and will probably love city of glass. And if you love city of glass then keep going. I wasn’t sure about city of Fallen Angels but like all the rest, yip taken in and no way disappointed. Gets better and better. This is some seriously good writing and I have no idea what I’m going to read after this. Anything else will be a let down.

A great story and well read.

Where does City of Glass rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

City of Glass is not the best book I have listened to, but it is an enjoyable read and an excellent story.

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

City of Glass is another example of good triumphing over evil, love over hatred and truth over lies.

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

Natalie Moore was able to bring the emotion of the characters alive to the reader. Just reading it does as well but not to the extent that listening does.

Originally the final, thank goodness not!

Where does City of Glass rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's in the top 10

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

It's the culmination of so many fantasy archetypes done in a fab new way with awesome cheek! There is none other than those written by Cassandra, but I also enjoy many of her co authors

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

Jace...I love Jace, he's always so broken, ironic, sarcastic...I relate to him.

Any additional comments?

So relieved there is more to it than this book, you get to savour some deeply twisted moments along with euphoric happy ones and I was sad when it "finished". In books 4 & 5 the story and character development rocks...so keep reading

Epic conclusion

This is the third book in the series and concludes the events set in motion by the two previous books. Jace and Clary must come to terms with their past in order to win in the present. This is a tale of love and sacrifice stunningly told by the Author. Every sentence is lovingly crafted. For anyone who has taken these amazing characters to their hearts, this book is a sheer delight, and the excellent narration is just the icing on the cake.

fantastic

this is a great series, I love the mixture between the nephilum and the downworlders. The fact that they can come together to fight a common enemy is a lesson to us all.

Another great book

I really enjoyed this audiobook. It's the third one in the series and it answered a lot of questions brought up in the last few books. The narrator did an excellent job portraying the different characters and everything has been rounded up nicely leaving no unanswered questions I might have thought this was the last book if I didn't already know that there were more in the series. I'm interested to find out where the story goes in the next few books.

Wonderfully Entertaining

Book 3 is the perfect ending to the first trilogy of the series. All the questions are answered and yet there leaves room for the next 3. Cannot wait to continue
