I really loved this book. i read it one year ago during the Twilight craze ( at that time I was over the whole twilight thing) and I actually thought it was better than all of the Twilight series. The plot is much more interesting, and the Clary is not such a damsel in distress like Bella. I like that Clary is tough and can stand on her own. The Damsel in distress thing is just so typical now. City of Glass(in fact the whole series) kepp you thinking , and madly flipping the pages, hoping and cheering for the main characters, and reading all through the night. it is so good, that at the upsetting parts, I actually slammed my book on my desk in class once. Embarresing, but it is really that good.
