Review by Booklist Reviews

This long-awaited finale to The Mortal Instruments series maynot successfully indoctrinate new readers to Clare's sprawling world, but it will be a welcome addition for the existing fan base. Clocking in at 725 pages, City of Heavenly Fire is a veritable brick of story; it's long-winded in places, but it still delivers the (more or less) happy ending readers have been craving. The story employs a wide cast of characters, both new and familiar, and delves for the first time into the demon realms as Clary, Jace, and company struggle to find a way to defeat evil Sebastian. The action often takes a backseat to the romances, and some readers may be frustrated that large chunks of the book operate as a backdoor pilot for Clare's next series, The Dark Artifices, which is scheduled to debut in 2015. Still, this is sure to leave the faithful hooked yet again. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
