City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments #3)
The story was totally amazing!!! I would recommend this one to those who love reading YA novels with the poisonous taste of demons blood plus the bittersweet flavor of young love. For those like me who love Twilight, then this one will surely make you go nuts and bring back the groggy feeling of sleepless nights :D.The Third Book of the Mortal Instruments written by Cassandra Clare. The focal point of the story was the completion of Valentine’s plan in purifying the world which means, killing demons, downworlders and even Shadowhunters alike. Shadowhunters whom he believed to be tinted with the dirt and foulness of corruption should be eradicated, and to achieve this would mean summoning the Angel Raziel while employing horde of demons in conquering the highest order of their land in Idris, the Clave.What can I say? Well, a happy-ending for now, I guess. And I’m having a hunch that the villain for the next (3 more, If I’m not mistaken) book(s) to come would be Sebastian Verlac with his brethren DX, his demonic family. And Speaking of Seb- er, Jonathan the evil-bastard-foul-scumbag-**** I so hate him. First, Max, afterwards Isabelle, then JACE! Also, what freaks me out the most is that he finds it amusing that he snogged his sister! What the “F”. He’s CRAZY! The mere idea of it makes me wanna vomit, ew! No doubt he has demons blood running his veins.
As for the Angel boy/ knight in shining armor/ man of my dreams(hahaha), I felt awfully sorry for Jace. The feeling of having no family which kind of remind me of Remy lol, nobody’s girl and Jace would be the other version (Jace: Nobody’s Boy, lol 😀 Am I really symphatizing with him :D) Ehem! back to the topic, it is also a pity that the essence of truth has no real bearing in his life. What I mean is yeah, he’s been searching for truth all his life but after knowing it (maybe he thinks it can cure his longing of a real family and well here comes the saying that the “truth shall set you free”, but I still find him binded with the shackles of misery), what about it? 😦 okay he’s Stephen Herondale’s but… hhmmm, I’m having headache with this one :s It’s like truth is so evasive of them, just like the elusiveness of air around us. As for my (feelingera! Hahaha) Daylighter friend, Simon. I’m so proud of you dear, you have proven yourself that you really are a smokin’ or rather a burnin’ HOT vampire lol. As for Luke and Jocelyn, Magnus and Alec, congratulations to you guys haha. Lastly, my words for Clary… I’m so envious of you! 😀
Every chapters made me gasping, panting and later delirious. In comparison with Twilight specifically Breaking Dawn, I’m loving the Mortal Instruments Book even more. The supposed to be clashed between the two opposing parties (volturri vs bella and friends) was kind of anti-climatic. Twilight lacks the element of surprise, there are some things that are quite predictable. Unlike this novel, it has so much twist and turns. Anyways, I still love them both.
It’s definitely a goodread! This is a MUST-READ!!
