Review: City of Glass

Tittle: City of Glass
Author: Cassandra Clare
Publisher: McElderry Books
Pages: 541p
Rating: 4/5 stars

To save her mother's life, Clary travels to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters-never mind that by doing so she is breaking the Law, which could mean death. Even worse, Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by Shadowhunters who are deeply suspicious pf a vampire who can withstand sunlight.

 Luckily, Clary finds an ally in the mysterious Sebastian, who hold a strange attraction to her. As Valentine musters a demon army, can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their ancient hatred and work together? And can Clary harness her newfound powers to help save them all -- whatever the cost?

Here's Clary, after meeting Madeline, her mother's old friend who say she know how to wake her mother up decided to travel to City of Glass, to meet Ragnor Fell, the warlock who know how to break the spell. But Jace not wanting her to go to City of Glass, he said it was to dangerous there. But what danger is when she had already fought for demons, and like New York was safer place- Clary thought. 
But the day when she is suppose to go to City of Glass, The Lightwoods leave them because of attack from the demons, knowing that, Clary was mad and making her own portal and go to Idris, with Luke.

When she got there, Luke brought her to Amatis' house, her little sister because Clary drank to much water of Lake Lynn which is curse to Shadowhunters. After feeling better she is sneak out to find Jace, arrived in the Penhallow, she meet Isabella who seem so surprise to meet Clary and said Jace wasn't here, before Sebastian said he was upthere. Knowing that Clary was in Idris, Jace was so mad that he said some horrible things.  And meanwhile, Simon imprisoned by the new Inquisitor.
“You should never have come. I know I told you it’s because it isn’t safe for you here, but that wasn’t true. The truth is that I don’t want you here because you’re rash and thoughtless and you’ll mess everything up. It’s just how you are. You’re not careful, Clary.” 
“You’re a disaster for us, Clary! You’re a mundane, you’ll always be one, you’ll never be a Shadowhunter. You don’t know how to think like we do, think about what’s best for everyone—all you ever think about is yourself! But there’s a war on now, or there will be, and I don’t have the time or the inclination to follow around after you, trying to make sure you don’t get one of us killed! 
After that Clary decided to found Ragnor Fell by her own self, and Sebastian decided to help her. When they found Ragnor's house the one who open the door was Magnus, not Ragnor. Magnus said that Ragnor has died and he sent him a message that in order to saver her mother, he need book of white and it was on the Wayland's Manor House. But no one can get the book except Jace, and Jace of course wouldn't help her.

And in other hand, Valentine was ready to take the Clave down by his own army, because he had a spies in the Clave. And Luke was ready to help the Clave, with his Downworlders army.

Who is Valentine spies? and could The Shadowhunters win the war with Downworlders help? Travel to City of Glass with Clary.


So, Actually I didn't like this book too much. Why? Because I think Clary being annoying and make me like 'wtf Clary?!'. She is being stubborn and careless. The only thing that amused me that of course Magnus - Alec relationship :p
