Review

City of Glass is the third novel in the Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare. In this novel, Clary travels to the City of Glass to find a magician who is said to have a cure for her mother’s self-induced coma. This book is by far my favorite of all the books in the Mortal Instruments series so far. The plot of the story was much more interesting than the other books. Having a new setting freshened up the story and involved the characters doing things that they otherwise would not have done in New York.

Another thing I enjoyed about the book was the development of the characters. The Mortal War showed the characters that they are stronger than they think. It also showed the characters that they shouldn't trust anyone. Valentine might be Clary's father, but that doesn't mean she should follow his lead. Overall, I loved this book, and I wish I could reread it without already knowing what happens.
