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


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8755785-city-of-heavenly-fireIn 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 world in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy series The Mortal Instruments!
 

When I first read ‘City of Bones’ in the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare I was immediately hooked to this series.  I loved how original and exciting this series was. Although I still can’t understand why it took me so long to find this series, I was glad I hadn’t found this series earlier because it mend that I could read ‘City of Ashes’ and ‘City of Glass’ pretty soon after reading the first book. Unfortunately for me I had to wait for a long time on the last and sixth book in the Mortal Instruments series. But even though ‘City of Heavenly Fire’ came out a couple of months ago, I just couldn’t start reading it until this week. Why you ask? Because I just didn’t want this series to end. But now I just couldn’t wait any longer.

In ‘City of Heavenly Fire’ we read for the last time about Clary and Jace and their journey to defeat Clary’s evil brother Sebastian. Sebastian is on a war path to destroy Shadowhunters around the world and to get what he wants most: Clary. When the Dark War begins and Shadowhunters around the world are being killed and transformed in evil creatures, the frightened Shadowhunters flied to their headquarters in Idris to make a plan to defeat Sebastian. But soon Clary, Jace and their friends find out that Idris also isn’t save and that there is only one solution to stop this war. And soon they are on their biggest adventure jet.

I waited so long to read this book. In my head I thought about many different ways this series might end. But I definitely could not have thought of this ending. Just like all the other books in the Mortal Instrument series this book was full of excitement, adventure, magic, friendship and love. This book really kept me hooked. And although I’m really sad that this series ends with this book (I’m still secretly hoping Cassandra Clare decides to make another book about Clary, Jace, Simon, Magnus, Alec and Isabelle), this book ended in a perfect way. Honestly, I was really happy with this ending.

The character I’ve liked the most throughout this series is definitely Jace. I love how this dark and twisted boy changed in a kind and loving, but still very stubborn and arrogant man. I loved reading about his journey in the six books in this series. And I’m really going to miss reading new stuff about him.
I also really loved Magnus Bane. This sexy and funny warlock really was amazing to read about. 

Truly, the only thing I can say after reading the sixth book in the Mortal Instrument series is that everybody who hasn’t read this series must definitely start RIGHT NOW!! This series is amazing and I can’t wait until a new book of Cassandra Clare gets published.
