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

Summary :

In this dazzling and long-awaited conclusion to the acclaimed Mortal Instruments series, Clary and her friends 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 out of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.

The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris - but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Idris, who will guard the world against demons?

When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee - even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned...

Love will be sacrificed and lives lost in the terrible battle for the fate of the word in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy series The Mortal Instruments! 

Review :

This was a great conclusion to this series. I'll lay my feelings out there and say that I really wished there was some way for Sebastian to redeem himself. Yes he was evil and all that but there was just something about him. I don’t know if it was his flashes of vulnerability or his need to be loved but I really hoped he would have had a different fate. Especially after Clary stabbed him in the end....I absolutely loved that guy into whom he transformed. Sebastian was a villain that I loved to hate but some part of me also rooted for him. Too bad Clary's hallucination didn't come true.

I am gonna miss these people SO SO much! JACE!!! Clary, Isabelle, Alec, Simon and even Magnus. I'm really happy with myself for grabbing the very first installment not even knowing that it's gonna give me such an amazing series and characters to love.

Ratings : 5/5 stars
