City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
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. 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 new found 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 bestselling trilogy The Mortal Instruments.
The final book in the Mortal Instruments Series! Even though I loved this one, I didn't love it as much as the other two books. I felt as though the book felt short at the end and I wished there was something more. Everything that we have been dying to find out, is solved in the book, which is a good thing.
But, we do meet another character. A very intriguing one... Sebastian. And let me tell you, this guy will shock you when you find out his true identity. Again for this review, I'm not going to write much because I don't want to give away any spoilers, but I do recommend you reading this one. It wa sa great way to end the series and the guy on the cover I'm guessing is Sebastian...
