City of Glass & the anticipation of City of Fallen Angels

City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments, #3)In the third installment of the Mortal Instruments series Cassandra Clare has us on the edge of our seats yet again. There were quite a few aspects of the plot I predicted (such as the mirror, and the parentage of some characters) but there were also several big surprises. I love Clary’s contribution to the battle, and the suspenseful confrontations Jace gets involved in.

There was less humour in this one than the previous book, but there were still a few good one-liners. The atmosphere and tone remain a strong point in the series.

One of my favourite parts of City of Glass is the character development seen in Jace. His mixed feelings for Valentine, and confusion about his heritage make him feel wonderfully real.

See my reviews of City of Bones & City of Ashes for more thoughts on the series!

What I’m hoping for in City of Fallen Angels (to be released April 5th)

  • More about Simon, how he’s dealing with being a vampire
  • Alec’s coming out to his family
  • The politics of downworlders taking their place on the council
  • More dark humour + sarcastic dialogue
  • More demon fighting action

  1. Love her stuff! I heard a rumor that they’re gonna make this into a movie, kind of like the Twilight Saga and soon to be made Hunger Games. Have you read the prequel to The Mortal Instruments? The Infernal Devices? Also very good.
