This week's neglected book:
Series: The Mortal Instruments #6
Hardcover, 725 pages
Published May 27th, 2014
by Margaret K. McElderry Books
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?
Why did I add City of Heavenly Fire to my bookshelf?
I read all the previous books in The Moral Instrument Series, of course I had to purchase the last book. I should have read it in 2014, when the previous books where somewhat fresh in my mind. I really want to finish this series, but at this time I do not want to read the previous books once again. I may have to visit Recaptains, for a refresher of books one through five.
What are your thoughts? Have you read this book/series? Would you recommend it to others?
