From the Publisher:
Knowing that their father, Valentine, will soon attack, Clary and Jace must venture to the city of glass to find the warlock that has the power to save their mother's life and then uncover the truth about their past in order to prepare for the greatest showdown they will ever face, in the final installment to The Mortal Instruments trilogy. Simultaneous.To save her mother's life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters -- never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and her best friend, Simon, has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.
As Clary uncovers more about her family's past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadowhunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadowhunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he's willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her newfound powers to help save the Glass City -- whatever the cost?
Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the final installment of the New York Times bestselling The Mortal Instruments.
Cassandra Clare's "Mortal Instruments" urban-fantasy trilogy concludes in CITY OF GLASS, as Clary Fray must enter the ancient home of the Shadowhunters for a final showdown with Valentine's massing forces.
