    "Epic conclusion"

    This is the third book in the series and concludes the events set in motion by the two previous books. Jace and Clary must come to terms with their past in order to win in the present. This is a tale of love and sacrifice stunningly told by the Author. Every sentence is lovingly crafted. For anyone who has taken these amazing characters to their hearts, this book is a sheer delight, and the excellent narration is just the icing on the cake.

    "Loved the whole series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Would recommend this group of books. This 3rd book, City of Glass really gets your mind racing. I could not leave this book down. An exciting finish.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of City of Glass?

    When Jace and Clary finally discover what the different characters were trying to tell them, throughout the story.
    ( I don't want to spoil this for a new reader)


    What about Natalie Moore’s performance did you like?

    Her voice was strange at first, but you get used it.
    I have started the next book and she is not reading it.
    I miss her voice


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I loved this book.
    I feel in tune with the characters, completely.
    The story was very well told.


    Any additional comments?

    When can I get the film in the UK.

    Story
    "For all ages"
    What did you like most about City of Glass?

    The story kept moving forward so was impossible to put it down or go to sleep etc


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters may be young, this is a book for young people, but they seemed real and as a pensioner I enjoyed the ins and outs of the story.


    What does Natalie Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Natalie brings personality to the tale and it seemed that each person had their own voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The crew preparing for battle and agreeing to work together for the good of all. Quite a moral tale.

    I enjoy fantasy books the most, including the grimdark stuff. However I do try other types of books once in a while.

    Story
    "So glad I stuck with this series!"

    I was quite convinced I didn't want to continue with this series after the first book. I did because the story was really good - I mean apart from the incest bit, and maybe also morbid curiosity. (I still can't believe an author would use incest in a book and expect people to be ok with it - or maybe she understands that people are intrigued by impossible barriers that separate lovers and the need to fight to be together.)

    And now that I have finished the third book I am glad that I stuck with it. Definitely an intriguing story and I was totally surprised by the turn of events.

    The narrator was great too :)

    "Great light read very Potter influenced"

    I read this trilogy and really enjoyed it, very Harry Potter influenced in places but a little older audience.

    "Brilliant"

    Another great book in the series, I have already read all the Immortal Instruments & Infernal Devices books and loved them so much that I've bought them on Audio book too so I can listen to them again :0)

    Story
    "It should be in the YA genre but somehow suits all"

    Throughout the entire series I could not help thinking at 40ish this series was too young for me, then all at once something would happen and I was hooked again.

    I would not say it was my favourite paranormal series off all time but was compelled to buy all books in the series to find out what happens and very pleased I did.

    Well worth a listen, a very different take on the whole genre

    Story
    "Series of the year!"

    I’ve Been reading Cassandra Claire since April and wow. Whatn a epic extraordinary and amazing world. Never read anything like it before and am sadly disappointed to have just finished the very last book. Hopefully by now You’ve read the inferno dvices and first two books of the immortal instruments. If you’re stopping to check out reviews, it means your curious which also means you’ve been taken in by the shadow world and will probably love city of glass. And if you love city of glass then keep going. I wasn’t sure about city of Fallen Angels but like all the rest, yip taken in and no way disappointed. Gets better and better. This is some seriously good writing and I have no idea what I’m going to read after this. Anything else will be a let down.

    "A great story and well read."
    Where does City of Glass rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    City of Glass is not the best book I have listened to, but it is an enjoyable read and an excellent story.


    What other book might you compare City of Glass to and why?

    City of Glass is another example of good triumphing over evil, love over hatred and truth over lies.


    What does Natalie Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Natalie Moore was able to bring the emotion of the characters alive to the reader. Just reading it does as well but not to the extent that listening does.

    "Originally the final, thank goodness not!"
    Where does City of Glass rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's in the top 10


    What other book might you compare City of Glass to and why?

    It's the culmination of so many fantasy archetypes done in a fab new way with awesome cheek! There is none other than those written by Cassandra, but I also enjoy many of her co authors


    Which character – as performed by Natalie Moore – was your favorite?

    Jace...I love Jace, he's always so broken, ironic, sarcastic...I relate to him.


    Any additional comments?

    So relieved there is more to it than this book, you get to savour some deeply twisted moments along with euphoric happy ones and I was sad when it "finished". In books 4 & 5 the story and character development rocks...so keep reading
