But did anyone else feel like more people should have died? The ending was great and I'm glad that in the end everything was sort of okay for all the characters but I thought more main characters were going to die and was prepared to be a crying mess, stunned by all these deaths of beloved characters, which I was not. I feel like I felt far too... sane, at the end of the book. Does that make sense?(less)

This review and more can be found on Living for the Books

Finally, this prolonged series comes to an end and while I wish I could say that I'll really miss the characters, I probably won't. To be completely honest, I used to adore this series back when I first read it about four years ago, but I feel like it no longer has the same appeal as it once did. I'm pretty sure I only picked this book up out of habit

The biggest issue I had with this book was that the characters focus on the wrong things.

I was thinking up until the last 200 pages that this was definitely going to be a 3 star read, but that ending completely changed my mind. It really made up for the first chunk of the book.

The fascinating world of shadowhunters and downworlders has always intrigued me with it's rich world-building. The characters, so true and relatable, including those few twisted ones, have all contributed to making this one of my favorite book series of all time. Add in some adventure, romance, and humor, and you've got a recipe for success.

The last installment of the Mortal Instruments was nothing short of unforgettable. There were so many things I loved with it, but also things I regretted Cas

UPDATE 1/15/14

So the cover was released. Though I appreciate that the faces are a little more implicit than they were in the past two, I'm rather disappointed; there's something a little cheesy about it, and it looks kind of like a rehash of CoFA. Plus, Clary's hair... I get that she's part angel, but that's such an unnatural shade of red, and I never got the vibe that she dyed it. Also the city-scape at the bottom was always a favorite element, and it's just not as prominent here, so I'm bummed

With a heavy heart, I write this review. TMI is the series that rekindled my love of reading. I was so invested in this series, and I'm so sad that it's come to a close. But darn, Cassie ended it well. Warning: This book will make you so emotionally unstable. You'll go from angry to remorseful, happy to sad, laughing to crying, and so on. This book was everything I hoped for and more.

There is nothing I can honestly say right now to sum up my feelings. I said earlier that it was bittersweet reading this book which it is... but it is also more. I would say you want to go into this book with no spoilers - or as very little as possible as you want to feel everything this book has to offer, which is a lot. This book was simply amazing as it beautifully wraps up all lose ends created through all of the books. But als

Cassandra Clare why are you doing this to us? March 19, 2014 is way too far away, this is pure torture. How could she end it on a spectacular cliffhanger then expect us to wait 2 whole years?

“Freely we serve
Because we freely love, as in our will
To love or not; in this we stand or fall.”
I can't believe I finally finished this series. I am speechless. Completing all of The Mortal Instruments books feels like such an accomplishment. This is the first long-running series, with a total of six books, that I have ever read in my life.

As a whole, The Mortal Instruments was a rollercoaster ride. I had a love/hate relati

Hmm…although I have only read the first three books of TMI, I can't possibly imagine how Cassandra Clare wrote THREE MORE DANG BOOKS!!! Did anyone else think that City of Glass wrapped everything up nicely? I did. With everyone happy. The Downworlders and Shadowhunters forgetting their pasts and mingling. Maryse being okay with Alec and Magnus (that part was so sweet. I smiled whenever they came up.) Clary and Jace together. Simon accepting his sunny-albeit bloody- fate. Happiness for all!!!!!

Underwhelming, cliched, and mostly predictable. The characters, the story, and the ending was all rubbish. I wasn't expecting great things from CoHF but I did think I'd get a LOT more than what was delivered. There was no originality, no twists, no satisfying resolutions, there was just NOTHING… Everything worked out pretty much perfectly for the main characters, it was so bloody cheesy and blah.

It's bad enough I have to wait about half a year for COLS, now I have to wait more than a year after COLS for COHF!!! This is ABSOLUTELY THE WORST KIND OF TORTURE IN THE WORLD!!!! I should have waited till the end of 2013 then bought COFA, COLS and COHF but I couldn't keep my hands of COFA. And now how am I feeling you ask?

I have no idea why I'm going to read this.

Perhaps I am a masochist.

City of Lost Souls was freaking awful.

But I have to know how it ends.

And maybe it will magically get better.

Also it will probably have a gorgeous cover.

And I have no self-control whatsoever.

That might sound a little bit exaggerating but how else can I describe something that made me change my life perception? This series had love; between friends, siblings, and lovers. And thes

Once upon a time there was a twelve-year-old girl who loved reading. She read anything she could get her hands on - but unlike other girls her age, she refused to read the terribly famous Twilight. No, she was far too good for that. Instead, she devoured The Mortal Instruments series, which she believed was far more well-written, more complex than that worthless Twilight.

Decepción Total. Creo que fui demasiado generosa al concederle a este libro tres estrellas. Esas estrellas van para el publicista de Cassandra, quien hizo un trabajo más que espectacular al hacernos temblar de miedo por el anuncio de ¿Quién sobrevivirá? Simplemente nos vieron la cara al hacernos creer que enfrentaríamos una masacre sangrienta de la que pocos -y afortunados- personajes lograrían salir ilesos. City of Heaven

I read and reviewed the first three books in the Mortal Instruments series in 2009. You heard me right: 2009 .

In 2009, I used acronyms and words like "LOL" and "effing" in my reviews. In 2009, a majority of the people reading this review probably didn't have Goodreads accounts yet. In 2009, I started my first year of high school - now, I'm a sophomore in college. Throughout the years, this series has stuck with me, keeping me in love with its characters and crying for their fates. I hope this e
