*****I just had a baby June 11, 2012 so it will impede on how many books I can now read and review but I still will, just not as many :)*****
In the first couple books of this series, everyone had a hard time in
relationships. Every thing seemed to go wrong in everyone's
relationships. This one, it seems like everyone is becoming a couple. It
is more like a romance novel with the action from previous books in the
series. So, if you like romantic stuff and couples getting together you
will like this book.
In the last book in the Mortal Instruments series, Jace and Sebastian had disappeared. And in this book, Clary, being single-minded, can only think of one thing...getting Jace back no matter what. When Jace appears to Clary, Clary realizes something has happened to Jace. He isn't his normal self, he does whatever Sebastian tells him to do. Then she finds out something worse, that Sebastian and Jace are connected and whatever happens to Sebastian happens to Jace. Which means if Sebastian dies, Jace dies.
Unable to get the Clave
involved in fear that they would just kill Jace in order to kill
Sebastian. Clary puts it upon herself to save Jace on her own. While
Clary is off trying to figure out how to save Jace Isabelle, Alec,
Simon, Magnus, Jordan and Maia are also trying to find a way to separate
Jace from Sebastian. And in the meantime they all couple up an have
romantic flings with each other while they are trying to save Jace.
Of course like others, I wish the series ended with City of Glass. The Sebastian dying and then coming back to life and then being the villain is a little much. Then all the romantic parts, which I get. The first four books Jace and Clary relationship was tested at every turn, and is tested in this book as well. But, in this book, everyone else is hooking up as well.
Again, there is a lot left unanswered at the end of
this one that makes you want to know what happens next. There is a plot
briefly described throughout the book that I think will be pretty big in
the next book as a new villain. So I look forward to that!
