City of Heavenly Fire

Book: City of Heavenly Fire
Series: The Mortal Instruments #6
Author: Cassandra Clare

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...-Goodreads

Review: It's been awhile since I read the other Mortal Instruments/Clockwork Angel books and I'm glad I took a break from the series before reading the final installment. I am happy to report I wasn't annoyed with Clary throughout the book-amazing! Overall, this was fast paced and fun. There was a of teenager drama regarding relationships (I find it hard to believe that Magnus's love for Alec is really that earth shattering and unique considering how long he's been alive) and it was a very "tied in a red bow" type of ending, but I did enjoy this. 

Grade: 3/5
