Book Description:

Published: May 17, 2014

In this dazzling and long-awaited conclusion to the acclaimed Mortal Instruments series, Clary and her friends fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary’s own brother.
Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures out of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.

The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris – but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Idris, who will guard the world against demons?

When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee – even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned…

Love will be sacrificed and lives lost in the terrible battle for the fate of the word in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy series The Mortal Instruments!

Review –

Truly enchanted with this, the final installment, of The Mortal Instruments Series,  and I had no trouble falling back into the story after  having read the previous book months ago. I loved the different POV in this  book and the highs and lows of chapters. I mean,  you would reach a real high in the plot and then the author would bring you back down to earth and fill you in with stuff that was more in-depth. It made for a great final book in a great series.

Can’t wait for the next movie.

Review –

I wish I had written this review immediately after reading this book, but I didn’t and now I’m fuzzy on some of the events, but I rated it 5 STARS ***** because the ending was SO unexpected and makes the reader believe that it’s the end of the series-but IT CAN’T BE.  The author must continue. There are unanswered questions and relationships are still not firm.   ???????????  (head scratch)  Cried and cried while reading the final few pages and couldn’t have written a review then if my life depended on it because my eyes were all red  and swollen.  Anyway ***** and I’ll be waiting for the next book.

And Clary’s only chance to help her mother is to track down rogue Shadowhunter Valentine, who is probably insane, certainly evil—and also her father.To complicate matters, someone in New York City is murdering Downworlder children.
