City of Heavenly Fire (book 45)
This book stood up to all of my expectations for Cassandra Clare. She finished the Infernal Devices series so well that I was expecting alot out of this book and I can safely say that I was not dissapointed. One of my favorite parts of the book was that it combined characters from The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, and the upcoming Dark Artifices. We got to meet Emma and Julian right off the bat in the prologue. I am so excited to be able to read the series as soon as it comes out. I am already loving Emma and Julian but inside I am screaming at them no tto become parabatai because if they do they can't love eachother. In the begining of the book there were so many referneces to Tessa that I couldn't wait until she popped up in the book. She protected the London insitute and was the reason that Jocelyn changed her last naem to Fray (F for Fairchild and the rest was based of Tessa's last name Gray). Brother Zacariah was also changed back into Jem. I wished that he could have told Emma that he was related to her so that she would have some kind of blood family. I don't really know what to say about the rest of the book because I had so many feels and they is just so much that happened. I was expecting alot of people to die and was kind of dissapointed that the only really big character to die was Jordan and he dies fairly early into the book. I am happy that none of my favorites died but it seems a bit unrealistic that during such a dangerous war none of the main characters died. Theonly other characters that died were Amatis and Raphael. Sebastian also died but before he died we got to see the person that he could have been if he didn't have demon blood. Jocelyn and Luke finally got to get married and Alec and Magnus got back together. Jace and Clary were perfect of course. Poor Simon though. He had to scarifice himself and his memories to allow his friends to get away. Izzy and Simon were doing so well as a couple and then he had to go and forget her. he said he still dreamed of her but the book ended and you never got to find out if Izzy and Simon worked it out and became a couple again. When the Dark Artifices come out I hope the characters of The Mortal INstuments pop up every now and again so I can see how their characters are doing. So excited! Cassandra better write faster!
