City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments #6) 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…
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

Spoiler Free Book Review
What I liked about City of Heavenly Fire and all of Cassandra Clare’s books is that she doesn’t haven’t to kill all of her characters to make an impact. Sometimes stories call for death of certain characters, but killing random characters off doesn’t make a great book. Not that Cassie didn’t kill of any of her characters, she did. Of course she did.
Deaths can be good for stories. They make the reader feel emotions for the characters, whether it’s a good emotion or a bad emotion. But I think a great author can make their reader feel emotions for characters without having them die. Cassandra Clare is a great author. Words cannot express how much I loved this book and the whole series overall. The books have changed my life and without them I wouldn’t be the person I am today. No matter how crazy that person is.
Thank you Cassie, for an amazing and unforgettable series.
Ave atque vale, TMI. Hail and farewell.
