Shadowhunters and demons square off for the final showdown in the spellbinding, seductive conclusion to the #1 New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments series.
Darkness has descended on the Shadowhunter world. Chaos and destruction overwhelm the Nephilim as Clary, Jace, Simon, and their friends band together to 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 of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell. Nothing in this world can defeat Sebastian—but if they journey to the realm of demons, they just might have a chance…
Lives will be lost, love sacrificed, and the whole world will change. Who will survive the explosive sixth and final installment of the Mortal Instruments series?
I don’t know what to say. What do you say when a series you loved is over? You cry, you pray for more and then you desperately lie on your bed and wish you could start it again.
This was one hell of a ride and I loved it so much. So much, guys, so much. My love for Simon is astronomical and you can’t bring it down.
I was so afraid I wasn’t going to like it, because it took me nearly two weeks to finish it, but then again, I had a reading slump. I did like it, the second half, I mean. The first half was short paced and I just wanted to get to the action. Perhaps that’s why I gave it 3.5 stars. I could not get through the first half and I was so sad about it.
Simon is the true hero of this series. I loved every moment with him. Oh, the sacrifices he’s made and keeps making. I just wanted to give him a hug and tell him everything would be okay and that he’s too good for this world.
My favorite characters are definitely Simon, Isabelle, Alec and Magnus. Why no Clary and Jace, you ask. Well, my friends, sometimes I just couldn’t bother about them. I loved the others way more.
In conclusion, I loved this one, but I just couldn’t get through it, which still makes me sad. I wished Luke got some more book time. Luke rocks!
I’m so sad it’s over now, but also kind of thrilled to start The Infernal Devices and Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy! This was such a wonderful journey and I’m so glad I got a chance to live alongside the characters.
