I can't wait for this last installment to an amazing series! Though don't think this is the end of what you will be reading by cassandra clare. She is writing a new shadowhunter series called the dark artifices which takes place after city of heavenly fire in LA, SO IT SHOULD BE PRETTY GOOD! anyways, they are making the city of ashes movie already so don't worry the shadowhunter world isn't over yet.

Wow This whole series has touched many, many people which makes it very hard to say goodbye to characters we have stood by for 6 books. Isabelle has taught us to be strong despite what others tell you. Whether it was too young or too weak she would never listen and stay strong and tall. Alec has taught us to be brave in who you are and stand strong, even if it means standing alone. He holds his own and holds others as all hell breaks loose. Simon has taught us to never give up no matter what life has in store for you, which for him it has been A LOT. Everytime he was told 'no' or 'I'm going to kill you' he fiercely stayed by his best friend. Magnus has taught us wisdom is a powerful gift and creativeness. He has showed us how despite his appearence as a teenager and carefree nature he can be very smart and deceptive to get what he wants, something everyone should have a little of. Jace has taught us to define yourself. Despite being told of who he really is, Jace broke free and made his own destiny and life. Clary has taught us many things. Love, true self, happiness, but one thing that has been underappreciated is she taught us that anyone could be powerful, even seemingly normal girls from New York. She let us know the truth is scary but it's possible to overcome then fear by being strong. This world, these characters started off as an idea, and now they have changed real people and their depiction on their lifes. This finale was the perfect ending to this fantasy and left myself filled with joy that I stayed with these people up until the end. I encourage everyone to finnish the journey and I thank Cassandra Clare for helping not only me but others through life with these people. They are as close as family Thank you

In writing this review, I'm going to assume that you've read the previous books in The Mortal Instruments as well as The Infernal Devices. You have no idea how much I loved this book (unless you read it/watched me read it). After Clockwork Princess, I was really worried I'd be sobbing at the end, but surprisingly, I was not. I got the book the week I was volunteering at a local elementary school, so I didn't exactly get much reading time. Which means, I got it Tuesday evening and finished it Thursday evening. And by Thursday evening, I mean really early Friday morning. So what if I stayed up past midnight to finish it, right? RIGHT? As I told me parents when I was explaining myself, it was SO worth it! There is a good possibility that part of this review will be be whited out for spoilers, so prepare yourselves. There are SO many characters in this book! Along with the main cast from the previous books, Emma and Julian from the next series get bigger roles, as well as Brother Zachariah. I love all the characters for different reasons. Clary is simply amazing. She's talented and isn't afraid to stand up for what she believes in and bend the rules when need be. Jace does just bend the rules, he breaks them, repeatedly. Over and over again. In the words of Clary "Yeah, but he's hot." (Also, can anyone tell me what the E is in the DSES scene? I couldn't figure it out) Magnus is sparkly and amazing. Up to this point, we've never seen him falter, so it's interesting to see him at his lowest points. Alec is a wonderful combination of careful and fearless, leading to some interesting messes. Izzy is plain fun, but she also has a real self under the facade. Izzy charges into a fight, but when it comes to matters of the heart, she's more than cautious. Simon, while not necessarily charging into a fight, takes the heart head on. He isn't afraid to tell Izzy how he feels about her, and that's something that I admire in him. Also, his nerd references are BEAUTIFUL! I really loved getting to meet Emma in this book, and am excited to get to know her better next year in The Dark Artifices book one, Lady Midnight. This book was a beautiful 725 pages! It's easily the biggest book on my shelf! I love that it was very large and kept me entertained all the way through. I wasn't as interested in the Maia parts as the others, but it was interesting at times. I loved seeing Tessa and Jem in the book (though Jem is never referred to by name). I love how Jem still feels the need to fight for the Shadowhunters, and protects Emma (cause, you know, they're kinda related). I love when Jem will reference events from TID, and while no one else in the book gets it, it sends me into fits of tears or laughter, the two are practically interchangeable at this point, especially when concerning Cassandra Clare. There is no doubt in my mind that I loved this book, and I can't wait for Lady Midnight to release next year! Five stars for sure!

Thanks Cassandra for making a memorable ending to my favroite, epic series! This series gave us laughters, disbeliefs, smiles, anger, tears, and lessons to learn in the end. Thank you for making characters like Clary Morgenstern, Jace Herondale, Alec Lightwood, Magnus Bane, Isabelle Lightwood, Simon Lewis, Jocelyn Morgenstern, Luke Garroway, Valentine Morgenstern, & Jonathan Morgenstern.

The sixth and final installment of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments urban fantasy series starts off  with the evil Sebastian Morgenstern attacking the Los Angeles Institute with a band of his Dark Shadowhunters. He needs to turn more of the angelic warriors to the dark side if he's going to succeed  in his quest to eradicate the Nephilim and destroy the world. His one weakness remains his passion for his sister Clary, who along with the other Shadowhunters of the New York Institute, is determined to stop him. What follows is 700-plus pages of mayhem. Successes and reversals. Alliances and betrayals.  Characters from across the series and its prequel trilogy--the incomparable INFERNAL DEVICES--work  to either thwart or enable Sebastian's insane plot. We also meet a bunch of fascinating new characters--mostly child survivors of the Los Angeles Institute massacre--who will carry Clare's fictional  universe into its next chapter, an upcoming series called The DARK ARTIFICES. Clare manages to wrap up most of her long and tangled plot threads in satisfying, if unexpected, ways. But there's also enough darkness on the horizon to leave readers eager to know what happens next. Clare's world is an ambiguous one, where good and evil tread a fine and often blurred line.  (Warning: Spoilers below)  If I had to point out a few rough spots, the presence of a condom in the bowels of Hell would be one. Sure, it's politically correct and responsible of a hero like Jace to have one at the ready for his big moment with Clary...but COME ON! No food, no water, no way home...but he has a condom? Also, some scenes in the middle of the book drag a bit as Clare jumps from point-of-view to point-of-view and from realm to realm. Finally, at about 100 pages, the epilogue is a bit dragged out. True, Clare had to write herself out of a corner created when she has Clary and the gang resort to requesting demonic assistance to get out of Hell. Demons do nothing for free and this little favor comes at a huge cost. The kind of cost that leads to enraged readers and authors in fear for their lives. Clare manages to give readers what they want in a way that serves and even enriches her story. With THE CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE, Cassandra Clare provides the best kind of conclusion...one that is  the beginning of something that promises yet more excitement.

Honestly I loved this book. I did. But it disappointed me in so many ways. I had wanted there to be a happy ending and there was. However that ending only consisted of unwanted happiness and still there was loss and it made me angry and sad at the same time. I was relieved. And I still grieved because in that happy ending I still cried for the loss of characters that should have been there even if they were the enemy.........

I wouldn't have wanted this last book to have been written any other way. I'm going to miss the characters in this series. I know it isn't the last time we'll see them, but not getting to follow thier lives after we've been through so much together just seems wrong.

I love Cassie's work!! She's one of the best authors that made amazing worlds!! It's very hard to let go of the series now, but get ready!! A new series is coming in 2016!! I honestly can't wait for The Dark Artifices!! I want to see how Emma's life rolls out, as we have seen Tessa's and Clary's. And since TDA takes place in LA, I live near there, so I wanna see what Cassie puts in her books next!! I will miss all the characters, we fangirls and fanboys stick together don't we? Everything and everyone is infinite after all.

When i finish a series that i absolutely loved, i sit and stare at the wall thinking "ill never find a better series." I always do, except this time. I have read countless books after the series and havwnt found one that has come close to my favorite. Someday i want to be as great a writer as u Cassandra ...

I'm heartbroken, in a way, to see the end of this fantastic series. The one thing keeping me hopeful is the prospect of reading the Bane books, as well as the Dark Artifices series. Even if the story of Jace and Clary is over, I'm so pleased to know that Clare will continue writing, at least for a little while, within this world that I've come to love so much. As far as how I liked this book, this epic finale, I am in awe. I didn't think there was a way to make me satisfied with the results for every main character, but I find I am. Things may have been sad, but ends were tied up neatly. I'm especially glad of the way things resolved with Simon...I was extremely worried that I was going to leave this book with a hole in my heart where Simon has dwelled these past years. While it wasn't a perfect happily ever after, I feel like Clare gave us a realistic and still hopeful ending to this marvelous series.
