KIRKUS REVIEW

How could things possibly work out for Shadowhunter Clary in this trilogy conclusion? Her mother’s still in a coma, her boyfriend Jace is still her brother and her best friend Simon is still a vampire. As the Shadowhunters prepare for war against the army of demons raised by Clary’s father, Valentine, Clary’s bound for inspection in Idris, the Shadowhunter country. She’s joined there by Simon and her werewolf father-figure Luke, though as Downworlders, their presence in Idris is illegal. Soon all the magical beings readers have met in Manhattan—vampires, warlocks, faeries and werewolves—have converged on Idris in a last-ditch effort to save the world. Betrayal and intrigue suffuse Clary’s world as she navigates between angels and demons, politics and war. As lurid battle scenes cut to the requisite shocking revelations and angst-drenched reunions, readers will almost hear the John Williams music swelling. Derivative though it may be, melodramatic emotional wallowing has never been so much fun. (Fantasy. YA)
