This should be pretty obvious and it's been 7 years since this series started but I'll spell it out anyway: Although I try pretty hard to avoid spoilers in my reviews, there will be spoilers for the previous books. So if you're like me and lived under a rock for the last 7 years, start with the first one. 

Clary is STILL trying to save her mother and must travel to the Shadowhunter's homeland Idris to do so. She needs to find the warlock who helped her mother put herself into a coma so he can hopefully get her out of it. Unfortunately, the warlock is killed before she can talk to him. On top of that, Jace doesn't want her in Idris, Simon--who is now a vampire who can withstand sunlight--is being held prisoner by the very people who are supposed to be helping Clary, and there's another boy giving Clary confusing feelings.

Clare gives us everything we want in this "final" book of the trilogy (yes, final is in quotes for a reason. Wait for the next review.) Questions are answered, the big drama of Jace and Clary is resolved, and the Shadowhunters live happily ever after. Until the next book.

I was completely satisfied with the ending and enjoyed this book as much as the first two. Was it a groundbreaking work of literature? No. But it was a fun exciting series that was more than just vampires or werewolves or witches. I personally love the idea of angels and was happy to see a series include them.

I'm an Amazon Associate now. If you click on the Amazon links and buy anything I might make a tiny bit of money.
