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


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


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!


“We are all the pieces of what we remember. We hold in ourselves the hopes and fears of those who love us. As long as there is love and memory, there is no true loss.”

Let me start off by saying how much I will miss this series. I reread it for a second time and I can’t believe how much I forgot. I never realized how much I missed and loved the series until now. I read this book for the first time at a really bad point in my life and this series helped bring me out of it and helped shape me into the person I am today. I am extremely glad that I reread it so I could enjoy it again. I fell in love with this series all over and I don’t regret a minute of it. I am incredibly sad that this series is over and the pain of losing it again did not lessen. Fortunately, Cassandra Clare continues this story in The Dark Artifices and I can still read about these characters down the road. Thank you Cassandra Clare for this gift of a series. I actually read this series and then The Infernal Devices so I missed a lot of the Will, Tessa, Jem, and Magnus story. When I was rereading it, I cried over and over of the mentions of Will and I am extremely happy that he was not forgotten. I see so much of him in Jace and this book would not have been the same if he weren’t mentioned at least once. I highly recommend reading The Infernal Devices first so you do not miss the little hints in the conversations throughout the book. There are also many hints of the Julian-Emma romance in the book if you know where to look. Emma was probably one of my favorite new characters in this book and I love the Blackthorns as well. Can’t wait to reread Lady Midnight and waiting for the Lord of Shadows release. This series was my first love and I will never forget it. Thank you again Cassandra Clare for writing this series and helping people like me find who they are. I will never forget it.
