the series that rekindled my love of reading I was so invested in this series, and I m so sad that it s come to a close But darn, Cassie ended it well Warning This book will make you so emotionally unstable You ll go from angry to remorseful, happy to sad, laughing to crying, and so on This book was everything I hoped for andMe While Reading This Book The Writing Cassie Clare never ceases to amaze me with her skilled writing I had no idea how she was going to tie up her all the loose ends and create a satisfying end Somehow she did it, and better yet, she did it well I love the deep complex characters, the twisting plots, the humor, the action, the deception, the drama, the wit, and crazy parallels and connections to TID Her writing is consistent and lovely The third person POV with switches between characters works really well, and she s really descriptive I can always picture in my head what s going on in the story I had no idea what was going to happen in this book Clare kept me guessing until the end Everything was just so beautifully written and wonderfully done She s a writing god The Plot I love how this book wasted no time Cassie Clare just went right into it End of Chapter 1 BAM they re going to Idris Thank god I thought I was going to have to wait ten chapter for them to return to the homeland This book was packed full with awesome elements There was the perfect blend of action, drama, romance, humor, mystery, adventure, and betrayal.There was a great balance between grave, sad moments and light happy moments This book is a whooping 725 pages yet somehow this book doesn t seem too slow or fast paced Everything was timed out well Every scene was there for a reason, there weren t any dragging and boring moments I liked how she wrote it so that not everyone got away unscathed by the end It wasn t a total HEA but still happy The Characters I am going to miss all of these characters so so much These characters have come so far I m so proud of them and all they ve accomplished and overcome in this series I love these characters so much, and I can t let them go The Romance The romance in this book was so adorable Clace was perfect Clace They trust, they confide in, they love They ve finally worked out their relationship problems Sizzy DTRed Yay I love Sizzy but it annoyed me how they never really talked about their feelings They keep putting it off or just don t talk about it Malec was amazing I ve never been really crazy about them, but I totally shipped them in this book They saw their own flaws and fixed them They came to terms with things and decided to just be happy and be together Some Awesome Quotes Heroes aren t always the ones who win, she said They re the ones who lose, sometimes But they keep fighting, they keep coming back They don t give up That s what makes them heroes Shadow hunters are the Angel s weapons Temper us in fire, and we grow stronger When we suffer, we survive Because the world isn t divided into the special and the ordinary Everyone has the potential to be extra ordinary The Deaths The deaths aren t anywhere near as bad as people claimed them to be Don t worry you ll survive You might shed some tears as I did, but trust me, it will all be okay Karma for some of those deathsThe Humor The guard are there to protect us, not keep us in Have some perspective Alec, you ve known me for seven years, said Jace When have I ever had perspective Brother Zachariah, Isabelle said Months January through December of the Hot Silent Brothers Calendar What s he doing here There s a Hot Silent Brothers Calendar said Alec Do they sell it You re pining, said Jace.Alec shrugged Look who s talking oh I love her Oh, she s my sister Oh why, why, why The Climax The Denouement Jem and Tessa Ahh I loved reading the parts with Jem and Tessa Ugh I kept tearing up when I read so many of those TID references JESSAMINE Oh god And there were Will references all over the place I love how Cassie added Jem and Tessa to the book Tessa and Jem truly deserve each other They are such good people and gosh, after everything they ve been through they so deserve to be happy I hope we see a wedding for them sometime in the future I hope that Tessa tells Jace of their relation and Jem does likewise with Emma So then they re both not totally alone AND It s hinted that Jem and Tessa might be in TDA And they got Church back D The Blackthorns and TDA I am so happy that we got to meet the main cast of The Dark Artifices I love the Blackthorns family already In TMI there was the focus surrounding The Crew Sizzy, Clace, and Alec but that was about it It s going to be fun to read ofpeople in the main cast all together All of the characters so far seem so realistic and relatable and adorable and sweet and complex Emma Carstairs is so awesome She s like a smaller female version of Jace XD And Julian is so adorable and fiercely protective With the glittering setting of Los Angeles and chock full of great characters, I am SO EXCITED for Lady Midnight, out Fall 2015 The Ending The ending was truly bittersweet Not everything in the Shadow World turned out perfectly There are scars and many mistakes made that might turn into problems later It was truly the saddest happy ending Not everyone came out unscathed I liked that Cassie Clare didn t make the all around perfect HEA In terms of what happened for these characters, I think besides the little hurtful prick twist they pretty much got their HEAs After Finishing The Book It s hard to say goodbye to this series I love how CoHF ends brightly and optimistically Cassie Clare lets the reader imagine what the future holds for these characters In that way, these characters will always still be with us, their story still lives on I know that I will carry this lovely story in my heart for the rest of my life and although TMI is over, we ll always remember This series has been a wonderful journey that I will never forget I find it only fitting that I end my review with a quote from Cassie We are the pieces of what we remember We hold in ourselves the hopes and fears of those who love us As long as there is love and memory, there is no true loss Cassandra ClarePRE READING UPDATE 5 30 14 Finished the book Crying Literally crying Review to come Below are some gifs and pics that epitomize my feelings and emotions regarding this finale of my

was too amazing for me to dwell in the few sad parts and forced me to embrace all it had to offer I thought I d be broken with the end of The Mortal Instruments, but I am so happy This book was PHENOMENAL I finished it in under 24 hours because I literally COULD NOT put it down Cassandra Clare concluded such an amazing series in such a beautiful way I didn t think it was possible to cryhappy tears than sad tears when finishing off your absolute favorite series, but somehow, this novel was too amazing for me to dwell in the few sad parts and forced me to embrace all it had to offer I thought I d be broken with the end of The Mortal Instruments, but I am so happy knowing the fates of the characters I ve come to love and feeling the security of knowing that one of the greatest works of YA literature ever written has ended as wonderfully as it started If you want to check out my book talk which does include spoilers here it is I m just praying to God that this is the last one The fascinating world of shadowhunters and downworlders has always intrigued me with it s rich world building The characters, so true and relatable, including those few twisted ones, have all contributed to making this one of my favorite book series of all time Add in some adventure, romance, and humor, and you ve got a recipe for success.The last installment of the Mortal Instruments was nothing

building The characters, so true and relatable, including those few twisted ones, have all contributed to making this one of my favorite book series of all time Add in some adventure, romance, and humor, and you ve got a recipe for success.The last installment of the Mortal Instruments was nothing short of unforgettable There were so many things I loved with it, but also things I regretted Cassie didn t explore futher I guess with a book series as large as this one it would be hard, if not impossible, to address everything All in all, City of Heavenly Fire was deeply affecting, a real page turner with both heartbreaking and truly happy moments Few books have managed to touch me this way last time was Clockwork Princess, and I swear, it took me months to even consider picking up a new book to read Months That s how emotional it got me.There is a war in this book The end of the world type of war, and however clich that may sound, let me assure you, it is not Maybe, just maybe, I m too invested in this series, but I found the build up to be realistic The war will bring destruction, but it will also pave the way to a hopefully brighter future view spoiler if you consider the fey to be a smaller threat than Sebastian hide spoiler It will shape the lives of the survivors, and lead to the ascension of new warriors view spoiler Am I the only one who at We have lost so many It has been a long time since death undid so many Nephilim We must reach out into the mundane world, find those who might Ascend, teach and train them almost yelled out TAKE ME TAKE ME I guess it all just felt so real like I was there Damn it hide spoiler Essentially, The Mortal Instruments is a story about bravery and sacrifice and friendship, and encircling all of these, is love and compassion It s about how caring about others and about the world we live in can only make it better That s what I m taking away from this story.That and overly exaggerated expectations of how my next boyfriend should be like If you re not anywhere close to as awesome as Jace Herondale is, I m done with you I just might up never getting married, but that s OK view spoiler A slight input on the topic of Herondales, is it just me who got this big lump in my throat whenever there were any mentions of them, and references to Will in particular I just have such a soft spot for all things Herondale Jem s love for, and determination to save the last of the Herondale family, undid me If the chance comes before me to save the last of the Herondale bloodline, I consider that of higher importance than the fealty I render the Clave.This is why I wish there wasinteraction between Jace and Jem,Tessa and Jace,explaining I guess I do understand their decision to wait It makes sense from their point of view, just not from mine, ha And I absolutely loved it when Jem said No other family does so much for love, or feels so much guilt over it Don t carry the weight of the world on you, Jace It s too heavy for even a Herondale to bear hide spoiler I will miss Clary, Jace, and the rest of the gang really, miss is putting it lightly, I will probably agonize over the loss of them And I hope to maybe see some cameos of them in the Dark Artifices Maybe Cassie will even consider writing a short story of Tessa and Jace s talk about the Herondale family One can only hope PRE REVIEW Aug, 2010 If City of Heavenly Fire is to be published year 2013, it evidently means that there will be no end of the world year 2012 This is GOOD news UPDATE 25 11 2012We WILL survive Ms Clare wouldn t do this to us if she wasn t ABSOLUTELY sure the world isn t ending in less than a month me looks nervously at the calendar UPDATE 23 12 2012Told ya P Words cannot express how amazing this book was I will be posting a detailed review up on my youtube channel soon 1 City of Bones 2 City of Ashes 3 City of Glass 1 Clockwork Angel 4 City of Fallen Angels 2 Clockwork Prince 5 City of Lost Souls 3 Clockwork PrincessYou are the blade of Heaven Make sure you are worthyFriends, we did it, we read all of the The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments I d like to take a moment and thank each and every one of you who motivated me to read this backlist instead of just jumping into The Dark Artifices Se 1 City of Bones 2 City of Ashes 3 City of Glass 1 Clockwork Angel 4 City of Fallen Angels 2 Clockwork Prince 5 City of Lost Souls 3 Clockwork PrincessYou are the blade of Heaven Make sure you are worthyFriends, we did it, we read all of the The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments I d like to take a moment and thank each and every one of you who motivated me to read this backlist instead of just jumping into The Dark Artifices Seriously, I am so grateful because even though the road started off rocky, I quickly became so attached and fell so in love with these characters and this world But we don t talk about City of Fallen Angels, that book never existed Basically, if you are on the fence about starting this series, and not sure what it is about, this is a story about a paranormal world that is hidden from the mundanes non magical humans We see vampires, werewolves, faeswoons forever still , angels, demons, and everything else you think of when you think paranormal And we also are introduced to the world of shadowhunters, the warriors who are sworn to defeat the demons But this is also a story that puts friendship at the forefront constantly This is a tale about found families, choosing who you want to share your life with, and realizing that neither of those things require the same blood This is a book about unconditional love, and selflessness, and doing anything you can to protect those you care about And you follow so many different characters, friend groups, and families along the wayThere will always be those who want to tell you who you are based on your name or the blood in your veins Do not let other people decide who you are Decide for yourselfAnd there is just something so beautiful about seeing all these stories, characters, and families intertwine All these bloodlines mixing truly feels like something so special to read I don t compare things to Harry Potter too often, but I will say that the feeling I had while flipping these pages, never wanting to stop, excitedly purchasing the next book, it was all so reminiscent of my Harry Potter experience And there is really no higher praise that I can give a book series than that I loved this final story I believe with my whole heart and soul that Cassandra Clare just kept improving throughout all of these books And I have only the highest of hopes for what she will do next But the rest of my review is going to touch on a couple key things that happened in this book and things that have happened in previous books, so please use caution reading the rest of this review if you have not read this book and its predecessors And as always, I m going to do a little mini character breakdown on my thoughts and feelings on all the main characters in this book Spoilers aheadI think sometimes we are reckless with our hearts the way we are with our lives When we give them away, we give every pieceI could not find the artist s name, I m so sorry, but I found this amazing picture on Pinterest Jace I didn t hate Jace in this book Damn There I said it Are you happy now Again, I think Cassie Clare just gets better and better at writing as these books go on, and I was legit happy with Jace s character, even his pervy dude scenes, because relatable But my beautiful friend, Lea, pointed out that Jace brought a condom to Hell and I honestly died of laughter for about five minutes I aspire to the level of confident that Jace has to not only think he could put it in while in hell, but to also bring protection just in case But like I m here forever and always for safe sex portrayal, especially for teens, even in Hell, my good dudes Clary I feel like I ve never fallen in love with Clary the way that I have with other characters from this world, but I ve never disliked her And I really like how Jace took a backseat and trusted her to finish her own story Also, I love how she used her power at the end, because I always forget what a badass power it is Simon My sweet, kind, geeky, selfless boy Simon honestly might be my favorite of this entire world And him constantly willing to sacrifice parts of himself for his friends, you all I need all the tissues in the world He is friendship goals, boyfriend goals, and just human goals This boy deserves the worldI don t want the world I want youBeautiful fanart by taratjaht Isabelle And Izzy is truly my world I think Cassie Clare did such a wonderful job crafting her character to break all those gross mean girl stereotypes Izzy is hard and soft, confident and unsure, and beautiful inside and out Her friendship with Clary in this one also made me really weak But her realizing she actually loves this selfless vampire, this kind dork, and sweet boy you all, it is still breaking me Sizzy 4 lyfe Magnus Okay, be honest, how messed up am I that I really enjoyed seeing Magnus dad Like, damn I m impressed and want to know everything about Asmodeus Magnus was amazing, like always, even though he lost his cat Ahhh, my heart But I can t wait to see what happened in Peru, and someof his adventures, in The Bane Chronicles Alec I wasn t the biggest fan of Jace or Alec until this book Alec was a realistic eighteen year old that just had his heart broken, to me And he was actually amazing throughout this entire story, while showing us all the things he is struggling with deep down Also, his dad is a fucking asshole even after he was like my best friend, who was a dude, loved me and I told him to fuck off Like, I m sorry, was that supposed to make me like you and realize you are tolerant of your kid being gay Miss me with that shit forever, please But Alec was, and is, going through a lot, and he was still able to tell Magnus what he wanted and what his limits were at the end of this book Like, I think I finally ship them together Emma Okay, let s be real, she is Jace junior, BUT 102 times better But I instantly loved her and wanted her to be protected I can t even imagine the grief or trauma she went through and is still going through And I can t wait to learnabout her, while she hopefully learnsabout her ancestry Julian Legit, these kids are like thirteen years old and I m like don t become parabatai, you re soulmates like an insane person I can already tell that Emma and Jules are going to give me all the feels when they are older And their writing on each other Cutest, most pure shit in the entire world And Julian wanting to be there and raise his brother and sisters when he is just a kid himself What a sweetheart, and I m ready to protect him at all costs Brother Zachariah Legit, this character made me crythan any From saying where his home was, to asking if someone might play the violin My heart, I can t And I am most excited to see where his storyline goes And to see him talk about his past with a few young shadowhuntersGhosts are memories, and we carry them because those we love do not leave the worldLuke I ve loved Luke from City of Bones and I loved him through the last page of this book Legit the best dad, and he deserves the entire galaxy Jocelyn I honestly just came to hate Clary s momandas this series progressed Luke is too damn good for her She not only was a shitty mom to Sebastian, but she was to Clary, too And hearing her say all that horrible shit about how she wished she could kill him in the crib and stuff Like, I get it, he s evil, but can you like not say shit like that Fuck Maybe he didn t get all his evil from Voldemort Valentine Mark At the start of this book, learning that he was half fae, I instantly fell in love Seriously, I need to know everything about this hunt, and I m praying that it will be touched uponHelen At the start of this book, learning that she was half fae AND QUEER, I instantly fell in love I felt so bad for her at the end of this book because of how she was treated for being half something else, but I can t wait to learn any and everything about her Aline In my review for City of Glass I wrote,Um is this new character Asian and queer Because, I think she is, and I think I m head over heels in love with her alreadyAND MY SENSES JUST KNEW JUST KNEW I bet this character ends up being one of my favorites Gorgeous fanart by DREI SJ Jordan His death was actually my least favorite thing about this book And don t get it wrong I hated him from the first time I realized who he was But the way Cassie made him and Maia so in love, to only realize that fans were probably like, yo, this some abuse apologist bullshit so she killed him off and Maia Maia realized she never could have been happy with him Like, no Sorry That s not how it was written And it s so messed up because I should be so happy that at least the abuse apologist storyline is over, but it just makes me angry how much it got swept under the rug Especially because Maia is like one of four characters of color I don t know, friends I just, I didn t like it Oh, and then she is obviously going to just jump into another relationship with the Bat dude Like, why does Cassie Clare treat the character of Maia so poorly It felt so forced and I felt so much cringe while reading it But I do love how she is in charge of the pack now, so hopefully I enjoy her in other books Raphael Oh and then one of the other three characters of colors dies Feels bad, man Especially because I was really starting to feel for Raphael Poor guy just got dealt such a bad hand in life But I can t wait to see his past with Magnus in The Bane Chronicles Maureen This death actually made me sad, too Like, she didn t even have a chance They couldn t have captured her and done something Like, how heartbreaking Seriously Seelie Queen Okay, but where did this bitch go I literally gasped when I found out who was warming her bed I m still not over it Kaelie Whitewillow We are all rooting for you Sebastian You all, I really came to like Sebastian s character Was he a little extreme Yes Does Cassie Clare love threatening incest Yes But even before the evil left him, I felt a lot of empathy for him He really is the product of growing up with no love, and it really doesn t have to do with his demon blood Maybe it s my age while I m reading these for the first time or something, but I actually felt a great deal of sadness from Sebastian, and I think he was a really good villain in this book because of the emotions he was able to evoke from me So, to summarize, Jace and Clary did it in Hell protected , Simon and Izzy are the OTP of my dreams, Magnus and Alec deserve all the happiness in the world, I better getof this fae hunt society thing with Mark, Emma and Julian are already killing me, Sebastian was wild and evil but I still felt bad for him, Maia is a hot mess but it s Cassie s fault, Raphael deserved better, and all I want is Alline and Helen to rule the shadowhunter world It has been a wild ride, friends Overall, I am so happy you all convinced me to read this series, instead of just jumping into Lady Midnight This book in particular gives you so much new information and characters, I think you d for sure be doing yourself a disservice if you didn t read at least this book The road might have started out a little rocky for this series, but I really did come to love it with my whole heart Simon and Izzy are in my top five OTPs of all time, Magnus is one of my favorite characters in all of literature, and I already need to knowabout everything fae I can t wait to continue on with The

life of me remember a single aspect of this book and I no longer have any feelings towards it, ill or otherwise but I m doing my GR spring cleaning and removing or editing reviews that I hate It s a big task, since I ve written a lot of abominable crap over the past decade of being on Goodreads I m so OLD , but for fun I decided to go through the comments on this review Six years worth of them With all the fire and brimstone down there, it looks like a gaming subreddit, but at times there was some genuinely interesting conversation That s it, though That s all I have to add For the record, I actually wanted to remove this book from my shelves, because I genuinely cannot remember a single thing that happened in it and I don t even own the book, but GR won t let me It freezes every time I try to take this book off my shelves I guess I m stuck with it Cool, or whatever I was thinking up until the last 200 pages that this was definitely going to be a 3 star read, but that ending completely changed my mind It really made up for the first chunk of the book.
