I know, I know… I haven’t rated it 5 stars BUT give me a chance to explain. I did love City Of Glass as much as the other instalments – I just felt that this whole book was a lot to take in at once. The entirety of it felt like the climax of not only the book itself but the whole series. The factor that draws me to Cassie’s writing (even more than her world) is her characters. Personally, I felt that the severity of the plot, as well written as it was, took over from the characters slightly.
Disclaimer: this is my personal opinion and only issue with this book – I still love it! The Shadowhunter world is so established at this point, and I love analysing the politics between the Shadow World and the Downworld. My favourite scene is the interaction between Clary and the Seelie Queen when Clary tells the Queen that she has everything she wants… It makes my heart swell with joy!
I’m getting flashbacks to my first read of this series, it brings back so many memories. I know it isn’t top quality literature, but I can’t bring myself to care!
