Book Review: City of Glass

The Mortal Instruments Book Three: City Of Glass by Cassandra Clare
Clary and the callous, wretched Jace are consumed with torment over their forbidden love. Cry for them. Meanwhile the menacing Valentine plans a war to remake the Shadowhunters in his image. A showdown is looming in Idris as revelations, confessions and battles come thick and fast. This was good, another enjoyable tale of urban fantasy, family secrets and identity crisis’s. But why does Clary feel such insta-love for Jace? Why does Jace have any friends left?

Best Lines:
“Sometimes you are a bit stupid, you know. Just a bit.”

“What’s to say this Inquisitor isn’t a nut job too?”

“I even prayed he was dead, but I never knew.”

“You’re whining on and on about how your daddy didn’t love you. Well, who could blame him?”

“There are utterly lightless demon dimensions out there that are less dim than the bunch of you.”

“She saw a group of three or four Shadowhunters gathered in a circle around something that pulsed and twitched on the ground. They were taking turns stabbing it with long, sharpened poles.”

“I was trying to protect you-”
“Well, you did a terrible job.”

“What did you think? That if I couldn’t see the bad things, that meant they couldn’t see me?”

“I wouldn’t brag about being just like him if I were you.”

“Men do not consume pink beverages. Get thee gone, woman, and bring me something brown.”
