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!

This is probably one of the hardest reviews I’ve written.
Just know this was a fantastic conclusion to one my favorite series! I have been soo nervous for the past few months about this book! I expected so many deaths and absolute sadness, but I was wrong. Everything about this was amazing! It took me over a week and a half or so to read it. 725 pages is a lot to read! This is the biggest book-besides Breaking Dawn I’ve read! I felt so good when I finished because I just wanted to finish it before the spoilers started rolling out. Thankfully I never found a spoiler. I know some people got spoiled the day it was released.
I honestly don’t know what exactly to put in this review without spoiling anything from the series. But just know, it was fantastic! I loved all the action, romance, and suspense! I had so much to expect from this book and I was soo nervous going into just from seeing tweets from Cassandra Clare. I didn’t know what to expect or who was going to die, what. I was scared to turn the pages because I didn’t know what was going to happen next, but I was so excited to see this end.
The epilogue was perfect! Long, but sooo good! I got really teary eyed at the end. Happy tears, not sad tears. It was just so perfect and I am so happy that it ended so well!! I’m really going to miss all these characters who I really connected with and fell in love with!

“Okayyyyy,” Isabelle said in a low voice, “When did Brother Zachariah get hot?”– Cassandra Clare, City of Heavenly Fire
