This is the discussion area for the Buddy Read of

City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments, #6) by Cassandra Clare


We will start reading this book in July 28th.

Please feel free to join in and read with us at any time :)


Description:
Darkness has descended on the Shadowhunter world. Chaos and destruction overwhelm the Nephilim as Clary, Jace, Simon, and their friends band together to fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary’s own brother. Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell. Nothing in this world can defeat Sebastian—but if they journey to the realm of demons, they just might have a chance…

Lives will be lost, love sacrificed, and the whole world will change. Who will survive the explosive sixth and final installment of the Mortal Instruments series?

Elsa Carrion (ecarrion) | 412 comments I've been wanting to read this series. But wow, 600 plus pages, this would be the only book I read for the month. LOL

Those that have read the others in the series, is there a lot of fillers or is all 600 pgs necessary? How many side stories do they have going?

Here's my take...the first 3 books were good. I liked them. Book 4 was okay, but by book 5 I wished the series would have ended after #3. If it would have ended there, I would have been happy. The series has really good ratings, but I think it just drug on too long. I would recommend reading the first 3 and see what you think after that!

Yes, they would. Sebastian is too creepy with Clarey.

The Clave is still not very smart. You would think they would have learned their lesson about not listening to Clary or Jace, but they are still just doing their own thing and getting people killed.

I’m not a fan of the narrators of this book. The accent doesn’t go with the book. I wonder why they changed them.

Right! I feel the same about Maureen. (view spoiler) It's like the author is grasping at straws to find things to make the story stretch out and interesting.

This one is keeping my interest better than the last book, mostly because I know its the last one and I want to see how the story ends.

I like Alec more in this one, too. He’s more of a main character and less of just background.

Yes, I still think it should have ended after the third book.
