Waiting on Wednesday III

This was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It tells everyone about the books that you are most looking forward to.

City of Glass - Cassandra Clare

To save her mother's life, Clary must travel to the City of Glass, the ancestral home of the Shadowhunters - never mind that entering the city without permission is against the Law, and breaking the Law could mean death. To make things worse, she learns that Jace does not want her there, and Simon has been thrown in prison by the Shadowhunters, who are deeply suspicious of a vampire who can withstand sunlight.

As Clary uncovers more about her family's past, she finds an ally in mysterious Shadow-hunter Sebastian. With Valentine mustering the full force of his power to destroy all Shadow-hunters forever, their only chance to defeat him is to fight alongside their eternal enemies. But can Downworlders and Shadowhunters put aside their hatred to work together? While Jace realizes exactly how much he's willing to risk for Clary, can she harness her new found powers to help save the Glass City -- whatever the cost?

Love is a mortal sin and the secrets of the past prove deadly as Clary and Jace face down Valentine in the final installment of the New York Times bestselling trilogy The Mortal Instruments.

Release Date: 6th July 2009 (UK), 24th March 2009 (US) (shockingly unfair!)

I loved City of Bones and City of Ashes so I am very excited to read the final installment and the cover is so creepy. Do you think it might be Simon? The only thing is the agonisingly long wait. July is so far away!



  1. Yarrrr I can't wait to read this too! Although I prefer the US covers more. The UK ones are just so... creepy. *shudders*

  2. I'm so excited about this! I hate the UK covers though, especially this one. Eurgh.


Leave a message, I'd love to hear from you!
