For Clary and Jace fighting evil is the norm. They are shadowhunters and their job is to protect the world from demons and other monsters, but they have never experienced anything quite like this. Their society is falling apart, the good are becoming the bad; and it is all because of Clary’s brother, Sebastian. Together, Clary, Jace and their friends must adventure into an unknown world to find a way to stop Sebastian before he takes over the shadowhunter world.
City of Heavenly Fire is a fantastic end to The Mortal Instruments series. It had everything I wanted and more. The characters are compelling and full of personality complete with witty remarks and smart decisions. The plotline was action-packed and kept me on the edge of my seat, hungry for what happens next. This book craftily mixes all sorts of emotions into one book. I really enjoyed this book and I think most will agree Cassandra Clare is an ingenious writer. Take my advice, pick up this book today!
One memorable part is when Clary, Jace, Simon, Isabelle and Alex travel into a new realm a demon shows them visions. This scene was really intriguing and gave the characters even more depth.
