JUMPING RIGHT IN. City of Glass takes us headfirst into the mysterious Shadowhunter homeland of Idris as the gang of awkward teens must now tackle the Valentine problem head on. Valentine has gathered two of the instruments he needs to F shit up, so everyone must work quickly to stop him. After the ending of book two, we know that both Jace and Clary have weird powers. Jace is just super…agile? Idk. And Clary can create powerful runes. But things aren’t so smooth between Jace and Clary, as they shouldn’t be, but don’t think that stops them from being gross still. However, a new guy enters Clary’s life and surprise, he’s also obsessed with her too. #instalove *puke* That’s a three count of super obsessed guys for Clary. Must be a ginger thing. She’s also on the hunt for the potion that will awaken her mother, so finally that will be put to rest…or not rest, whatever. Simon is in prison because he freaks everyone out. Jace is thinks he was born to be bad and is just really dramatic all the time. And Luke, the real MVP of the story, is gathering a squad of Werewolves to help potentially battle Valentine.
We find out that the Clave, which is the government entity for the Shadowhunters, are just a bunch of racists. “Oh, we have angel blood and we’re so pure.” I’m kinda thinking maybe they do need to be jacked up by demons. While the racists battle over whether they should allow downworlders to help them, Valentine attacks the city. Do you think that means they have a change of heart? Nope. They still must be convinced to stop being racist. It’s a lot of fun. Also, that new guy I mentioned earlier, well things are gross with him and Clary also which has me wondering, why is this a constant theme? The clock is ticking, and doomsday is approaching, so will the racists decide to stand with the downworlders? Or will they just let everyone die because they can’t let go of their prejudice? This book is 4 stars for me.
