really liked it

Firstly, I just wanted to say that the way that this book ended, it doesn't seem like another 3 books were needed for the series. But I am going to read the next three just because I like the world and characters. And also as an author, I know what it feels like not wanting to let go of a story world so kudos to Cassandra Clare for having fun with The Mortal Instruments, it's her world and she can do what she wants. :)

Spoilers Ahead...

This is the third and was supposed to be the final installment in The Mortal Instruments trilogy. But Cassandra Clare ended up adding three more and now it is a series. I really, really enjoyed this
book and I was freaking out when I found out that Clary and Jace weren't brother and sister after all. I thought that was a crazy awesome twist and I applaud Cassandra Clare for pulling that one on us. Now, we get on to Sebastard, that asshole, I liked how ruthless he was but he killed Max and I wanted him dead and he died!!... I think... I actually think he might be the new villain for the next three books, but we'll see. We finally get to see what Clary and Jace are capable of, but I think we got to see Clary's abilities more. I don't even recall seeing Jace's abilities utilized at all... maybe I'm forgetting something lol but I liked that we got more info on that.

I was happy to finally see Valentine get his ass whopped and now he's dead. He better stay dead because he was a weak villain, in my opinion. He was more like a Klaus (the vampire diaries) than a Voldemort. I was never scared of Valentine lol but that didn't mess the book up for me. I still loved it. I don't feel I really need to REVIEW this, because I suck at reviewing books but just know that I enjoyed it and I can't wait for "City of Bones" (movie). Now I need to BUY these books. I want them all in hardcover but that is going to be difficult, I will try.

thanks for reading and now I am onto starting "City of Fallen Angels".

Devon She wasn't originally going to write more books. It was supposed to end there, but then she changed her mind I guess. I still haven't read the new ones, I don't really have a desire to...
