City of Glass by Cassandra Clare - ESSENTIAL

Clare, Cassandra City of Glass: Book Three of the Mortal Instruments Trilogy 541pgs. Margaret K. McElderry

Language~PG-13; Sexual Content~PG-13; Violence~PG-13


Clary is determined that she will find a cure for her mother. Even if that means tracking down an unknown individual in the fabled City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters. Both Jace and Simon are insistent that Clary stay behind and wait for Jace and the Lightwoods to meet with the Clave. But true to her character Clary uses her newly discovered power to create runes to open a portal. Valentine has 2 of the 3 Mortal Instruments and has come to the City of Glass to wage war on the Shadowhunters.

A thrilling end to a trilogy that will last the tests of time. . . . BRAVA Cassandra Clare!!

As in the other 2 novels, there is plenty of teen angst in the form of sexual innuendos but there is little more than kissing that is actually described. The language is on the dark side but I don’t recall any ‘f’s. The violence is frequent and dark similar but par for the course in an adventure/paranormal story.
