In this dazzling and long-awaited conclusion to the acclaimed Mortal Instruments series, Clary and her friends fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary’s own brother.
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…
Love will be sacrificed and lives lost in the terrible battle for the fate of the word in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy series The Mortal Instruments!
I started reading the final book just 2 days after I finished “City of Lost Souls” and… I’ve read half of it in 1 days. It’s absolutely interesting and nothing like the previous one. It caught my attention absolutely and I wasn’t able to stop reading. I don’t even have an idea why I had such difficulties reading 5th book.
Anyhow, the story follows what happened after Jace was saved and what actually Sebastian did to have the world. It was understandable that he wants Clary and he would do anything to have her. Somehow boring…, but this was his weakness after all.
Most interesting for me this time were the kids from LA institute – Blackthorn and the little Ema. Their story was captivating and perfectly added in the story. I would like to understand what is going to happen with them – maybe in another book.
And finally, what actually got my mind – who Brother Zachariah actually is? I want to know…
All in all, absolutely great final of this series. Cassandra Clare is great writer. I’ll follow her and will read her other books for sure.
General note: 10/10
