City of Glass: Mortal Instruments #3 by Cassandra Clare

City of Glass is the third book in the Mortal Instruments series. If you've been enjoying the series so far, you will enjoy it a lot more from this book. City of Glass was originally supposed to be the last book in the series, but then 3 more were added. Before I delve into the discussion, I'm going to send all you nonspoiler people off to read the book. And if you're confused on what this series is about, you can see my review for book #1, City of Bones here, and I have a description of what the series is about. So, if you haven't read it, bye! But come back soon.
LET'S DISCUSS NOW
At the beginning Jace was just so mean. He shouldn't have ditched Clary when she was so excited to go to Alicante and he didn't tell her that the time was changed. And when he was making out with Aline and screamed at her. I understand why, and I like him, but he was really mean. 
Did y'all see something fishy about Sebastian from the beginning, because I did. I knew he was doing something bad, I just didn't know what. 
Simon got thrown into prison, for no reason whatsoever. It's no wonder why the Downworlders hate the Shadowhunters. I mean why are there Accords if you're still going to treat Downworlders, who've done nothing wrong, like shit. 
I hate hate hate how Jace just wants to hate himself. Clary feels the same way about him as he does about her, so how is he any worse than her? 
In the Wayland mansion this angel that Valentine had held hostage shows them some of Valentine's experiments, and how her wasn't only f*cking up his own blood, but also his kids' blood. When the Wayland mansion came down and they were rolling around the dirt and making out was so hot. But then Jace blames himself again and then they fight. 
Finally when Jocelyn wakes up and tells Clary that she and Jace aren't siblings, Jace leaves to go die. Jace is so content with dying because he thinks he's bad, and that just pisses me off. 
But Sebastian is the one who makes that revelation to Jace. They fight, and Jace kills Sebastian, and goes to the lake. As Hodge said, the lake is the third and final Mortal Instrument and Valentine is there. 
When Valentine stabbed Jace, I panicked. But, the Angel Raziel kills Valentine, and gives Clary the wish, and she brings Jace back.
Alec comes out to his parents and he and Magnus are officially a couple #Malec. And Luke and Jocelyn get engaged, and Clary and Jace are together. Simon has the Mark of Cain now, so he's not in danger. As for his love life, Maia and Isabelle both have a thing for him. Who would have thought Simon would be in that situation? But you can read the next books to see how that plays out.
And we actually got a non cliffhanger end to this book. The series was supposed to end here, but Cassandra Clare wrote 3 more books, and they are all so great. This series is a roller coaster that only goes up. You could stop reading here, but I really encourage you to keep going, because the books just get better and better. That's all for this post. Tell me your thoughts in the comments, and I'll talk to you next time.
