Synopsis from Goodreads

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…

My Thoughts

I have wanted to read City of Heavenly Fire since I knew it was going to be a book! Why did it take me so long to get to it?! I should’ve dropped everything else I was reading for it. I wish I had read it sooner, but now I’m sad I’m done with Jace and Clary as the focus main characters. Oh, I know they’ll show up in the other companion trilogies, but “their” story is over. It’s now other Shadowhunters’ stories to tell.

City of Heavenly Fire was so good. I absolutely adored it. It was everything I wanted it to be and more. I loved reading from all the different perspectives, some I hadn’t had a chance to read from yet. I also loved exploring new places and new magic. I always wonder how Cassie is going to top herself, but she always finds a way.

City of Heavenly Fire is such a fantastic ending to The Mortal Instruments series, which it needed to be with it being the sixth book in an epic urban fantasy. I loved seeing that Cassie wasn’t afraid to do what was necessary. I’m just glad that one unnamed thing isn’t going unreversed. (Ha! How was that for unspoilery?! 😂)

I can’t wait to start The Dark Artifices trilogy now. A new adventure awaits. I have a feeling that it’s going to be tough to get through since I know the characters a little bit, I know what Cassie has hinted toward, and I know the Law. Oh, my heart. I hope I’ll survive.

    I’m glad it ended so satisfactorily. I gave up on this series after the first three because I felt it was wrapped up enough. I want to read the Clockwork books though!

      I understand. If they weren’t some of my favorite books, I wouldn’t have bothered either. But, I loved this world and these characters so I’m happy to stay with them as long as possible. 😀
