Published: March 24, 2009

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?

Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the third installment of the New York Times bestselling series The Mortal Instruments.
I think this is the most compelling sequence for this series. I really loved how to story turned out in the end. I was really waiting for the confrontation between Alec and Jace. So I never expected it to be as simple as that, a "brotherly affection". Hahhaha! I almost lost my balance when Jace asked him to kiss him. ^^, 

Anyway, I loved how the characters have evolved in this. All the characters have made an effort to prove their worth and maturity in confronting the challenges. They were so much different than before the story had started. Specifically Simon. I was really not betting for him at all. But I think I in this sequel he totally caught me off guard. He had matured in as very good way. That made me change my mind, so yeah, I think I liked Simon now. And I think he deserved a salute. Hahahha. 

Moving on. This book is totally good. Although it really broke my heart that *** died. But I think it's the secrets, truths and lies that where unravelled that makes this book really GOOD. 

So good that the story ends like I wanted it to be, in such a way I was hoping it was the last one. But NOT... Hahahaha! So hopefully the 4th one won't be such a waste.
