Review: City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

“There is no pretending," Jace said with absolute clarity. "I love you, and I will love you until I die, and if there is life after that, I'll love you then.” 

Name: City of Glass

Author: Cassandra Clare

Series: Book 3 of The Mortal Instruments Series

Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult, Romance

When I read this book in 2014 I was head over heels in love with it. I gushed about it in my Goodreads page how it was by far my favorite on in the series. My 22 year old self continues believing the same thing. This book is definitely one of my favorites. This is the middle book, the one that completely guts you and leaves you so sad and happy all at the same time. It is here when things start to really get disturbing and good and where Cassandra Clare really upped her game in plot development in characterization. The story drives itself in a way that was mesmerizing to read now many years later.  These series is one of those that is able to captivate almost anyone who enjoys fantasy. It has it all, from the coming of age, to the romance, and the action. It takes everything one might want and creates this messed up fairy tale world we are secretly or maybe not so secretly want to be a part of.  Clary is still not my favorite character and I don't think she ever becomes or will become my favorite. However, I am enjoying her point of view in some areas of the book a little bit more. Jace is still the character whom I feel Cassandra really spent her time digging in and trying to create this tormented character who you can easily fall in love with. It is not hard to continue speaking about her characters are they all are amazing built and constructed. You seem to learn about all of them personally and this point of view sometimes doesn't work with all books as the reader might feel detached, however Cassandra Clare has a way of letting you know the right information about each character in order to keep you intrigued in everything that is going on. It also allows you to dwell into the complexities of the issues, you don't only see one point of view in a fight or argument, you see them all and therefore understand them all.  The story is wonderful and it has been one of my favorite things to do in this 2020.  “People aren't born good or bad. Maybe they're born with tendencies either way, but its the way you live your life that matters.”  -- 5 stars --
