(Disclaimer: I wrote this review for my blog before knowing that Clare would continue with the series.)I will start out by saying that this book was basically a perfect finish to an amazing series. City of Glass was definitely my favorite book of the three. This series has been likened to Harry Potter, and by the time I finished it I could certainly see some similarities, though I don't think it has as wide a reading audience as Harry Potter.The characters are so well-developed throughout the story, you can't help but create attachments to them. Well, attachments to the likable characters, at any rate. And happily, every character with evil intent gets their just desserts by the end of the book, as well. Unlike the second book, I thought City of Glass jumped right into the action and did not stop until the end of the book. The story was incredibly gripping and at times, very emotional as well. When I closed the book, I had a feeling of great satisfaction at the way Clare resolved the story, which I think is a sign of a successful and well-written series.If you enjoy paranormal books and series, I can't recommend The Mortal Instruments series highly enough. I eagerly await the next book that Clare has to offer.
