Fire from the Heavens Friday
City of Heavenly Fire 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…
Bravo Cassandra Clare! As painful as it was to know this was the closing book I can say that I was happy with the final product. There was a period of time that I was not a happy camper but in the end I think I can live with it. Everyone has there own thing going on aside from the obvious Nephilim vs Sebastian. There's the Alec and Magnus, Isabelle and Simon, issues with vampires and devastation in the pack. This book is 725 pages and I wiped it out in 4 days so that right there tells you it's a super book. I will give you a bit of advice…if you've read the Infernal Devices things fit together a little better and it made me a little more happy. Looking forward to her new series The Dark Artifices in fall 2015. Here's a hint… Carstairs.
I give this book 5 chocolate dipped strawberries and just so we're clear if Magnus were to start his own line of glitter at Sephora I would be the first in line.
