Trust is dangerous, and to love is to destroy. Plunge into the fourth installment in the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series and “prepare to be hooked” (Entertainment Weekly).The Mortal War is over, and sixteen-year-old Clary Fray is back home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She’s training to become a Shadowhunter and to use her unique power. Her mother is getting married to the love of her life. Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last. And—most importantly of all—she can finally call Jace her boyfriend. But nothing comes without a price. Someone is murdering Shadowhunters, provoking tensions between Downworlders and Shadowhunters that could lead to a second, bloody war. Clary’s best friend, Simon, can’t help her—his mother just found out that he’s a vampire, and now he’s homeless. When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why, Clary is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: she herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves. Even Jace. The stakes are higher than ever in the #1 New York Times bestselling fourth installment of the Mortal Instruments series.

My Thoughts

Green swirlsWhere to begin?  I love these characters and this story so much that to find out that the series was extended to 6 books instead of 3 was a fantastic day for me.  Then I waited for the 4th book to come out and finally the day arrived.  I got my book and devoured it in just a couple of days (keep in mind I would 8 to 12 hours a day, otherwise it would have been 1 day).  I just did not want the book to end and then when I got to the last 2 chapters I just knew that it was going to end on a cliff hanger and I had to wait an entire year for book 5.   I braved it out and finished the book and now I’m waiting whilst dangling. 

Soooooooooooooooooooooo so so so soooooooooooo GOOD!!!   When I started reading it took me very little time to get back into the story where it left off from City of Glass and it was like I read it the day before.  It was awesome.   The storyline is so fantastic and the twists are gripping and Cassandra Clare’s writing is so fantastic that it flows from page to page and you don’t even know you’re turning the pages until you go to read the next line and there are no words left.
When I read the Twilight saga I had an extremely hard time getting into ANYTHING else.  I just kept picking books up and putting them down because they weren’t intersting to me.  They were almost boring after being so involved with Twilight.   I couldn’t read anything… until I discovered the Mortal Instruments.  They are nothing alike in any way shape or form, but the story was so gripping and different that once I started reading I couldn’t put them down.  They were the first books that got me out of my Twilight funk.  I thought Twilight would always be my ultimate favourite sereis and it still is, but it does have a bit of competition…. The Mortal Instruments.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this series!!

    The fourth installment had me feeling slightly more somber after so many happy endings taking place in City of Glass, but not too much to dissuade me from pushing through. Just when I thought Clary and Jace were on a no obstacles standing in their way course, Clare proves me wrong. Jace has got his hands full and nothing but ups and downs (mostly downs) in this go-around. It was disheartening to see it pan out that way. After a while a happy ending seems dramatic because it seems equally unlikely.
