The Mortal Instruments: City of Heavenly Fire Review

The Dark War reaches it’s climax in The Mortal Instruments: City of Heavenly Fire. Clary Fray’s demonic brother, Sebastian, is attacking
Institutes around the world, either killing or turning Shadowhunters into his Endarkened warriors. After the latest attack on the Los Angeles
Institute leaves children orphaned and others kidnapped, the Clave brings the Shadowhunters from around the world back to Idris, where a plan is
to be made to defeat the evil Sebastian. When Clary is forced to flee with her mother, Luke, Jace and the Lightwoods to Alicante, Simon is left
behind with Maia and Jordan, his bodyguard and friend from the Praetor Lupus. When the mentally unhinged Maureen, the new head of the New York
Vampire Clan, kidnaps him, Simon must turn to an unlikely ally for help. Soon, Clary and Jace, along with their friends, must go to an unimaginable
place in order to stop Sebastian once and for all, and they will have to sacrifice greatly if they are to stop him from turning the world to

This book is the final chapter in the story of Clary Fray and her friends and family, along with the twisted tale of her brother, Sebastian. The
grim tale of the Shadowhunters being torn apart as their friends and family are either murdered or turned into demonic, inhuman versions of their
former selves is incredibly addictive to read. There are some deep emotional stories in this book, as the prospect of death and apocalyptic
battles lead the main characters to seek refuge with one another, and shed their barriers in order to gain clarity before their most harrowing
battle yet. The writing is superb, and with some of the most dramatic, emotional scenes yet in the series, this is the perfect ending to the
Dark Shadowhunter story line, and the introduction of new characters is a perfect way to set the story for the next series. With shocking twists
and turns throughout the book, this reader and author is hard pressed to find a better example of powerful storytelling, and I for one am looking
forward to the next part of this incredible world created by the wonderful Cassandra Claire. Everyone should pick up their copy of this book
