OH MY GOD, I cannot rave ENOUGH about this book. So, in the third installment of The Mortal Instruments series, Clary has had enough. Her mother is in an intentional magic coma, and she needs to travel to the City of Glass to find the warlock Ragnor Fell, the one who made the potion her mother took, and the one who holds the secret to the antidote. Her brother Jace tries to keep her out of the city, and lures her best friend (and vampire) Simon to the institute to tell him about his plan. Then, Forsaken attack and Jace is forced to take Simon into the city, which is illegal because Simon is a vampire. Clary make her own portal(which is supposed to be impossible for a non-warlock) and her and her mother's best friend(and werewolf) go to the city. That is illegal because they don't have permission from the Clave. Along the way, Clary meets Sebastian Verlac- or does she? Sebastian's questionable actions raise suspicions about his identity, answered at the end of the book. I can tell you no more, or it will spoil the anticipation- I probably shouldn't have even MENTIONED Sebastian.

I love this book, but I don't like how most of the pages are missing. They should at least put the first full few chapters in so the reader can get a feel for the book to see if they want to puchase the book are not even bother to read it.

City of Glass is the third in its series called The Mortal Instruments. It is a good read, and I enjoyed it. There is only one thing that I disliked about it, and that was how the author, Cassandra Clare, has taken out one of the key characters named Luke. I mean he is still in the book, but he isn't as important in this book like he was in the first two. However, I do love how the author created so much emotion in the rest of the characters. For example, one of the main characters is named Jace, and he is always battling himself. It seems like throughout the entire book, he is beating himself up about things he could never control in the first place, and it just leaves you aching. Also, another main character by the name of Simon, has to battle his conscience because someone called the Inquisitor wants him to be in allegiance with him instead of Jace. The major theme in this book, I believe, is to follow your own instincts. Throughout the book, Clary must find a cure for her mother's self-induced coma, and she is always doing what she believes to be right. However, an underlying theme is to never just think about yourself, because throughout the series, Clary has often only cared about herself, rather than stepping back and thinking about her actions and what were possible outcomes to what she did. And that often cost her many things. My recommendation for this series is that you should read them. The series keeps you interested, and shows great emotion throughout each installment.

One of the best books I've ever read! I absolutely love it. I can't wait to read the City of Fallen Angels. :)
