City of Glass - Cassandra Clare

City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments, #3)
Serie: The Mortal Instruments #3
Release date: 2009 
Stars: 3/5 

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 Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters 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?

So I really really liked that first and the second book in The Mortal Instruments series. I'm a bit dissappointed with City of Glass. In the last book, Clary and Jace got the know the truth and couldn't be with eachother the way the would. That sucked big time and it was a really sad part. On top of that her mother was in coma, Simon turned into a vampire. I started to wonder if there was anything else that could go wrong. Well obviously that turned out to be a BIG YES. In City of Glass everyone is going to the City of Glass, the home of the shadowhunters. Save Clary's mom, stop the evil and all that. So what goes wrong? Well Jace doesn't want Clary to go, because it's to dangerous and all that. It's just to much drama in this book. I liked it, I mean how can someone not like Clary's story and the world of the shadowhunters? There is a lot of action and it starts early. There are a lot of twists and turns and I liked that. I really thought that in City of Glass everything was very predictable. I mean I saw what the third Motal Instrument was ways ahead of Clary. And the end wasn't a big suprise for me, while it should be a great big satisfying conclusion. I'm curious to see what the fourth book is turning out to be.
