Waiting on Wednesday: City of Heavenly Fire

This week's Waiting on Wednesday is all about Cassandra Clare's final MORTAL INSTRUMENTS novel, City of Heavenly Fire.

Set to be released on May 27, the novel is the much anticipated conclusion to the New York Times bestselling MORTAL INSTRUMENTS series. It finalizes the story between Clary and Jace and the world of Shadowhunters.

The early release synopsis describes the novel like this:

Shadowhunters and demons square off for the final showdown in the spellbinding, seductive conclusion to the #1 New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments series.

Darkness has descended on the Shadowhunter world. Chaos and destruction overwhelm the Nephilim as Clary, Jace, Simon, and their friends band together to fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary's own brother. Nothing in this world can defeat Sebastian--but if they journey to the realm of demons, they just might have a chance...

Lives will be lost, love sacrificed, and the whole world will change. Who will survive the explosive sixth and final installment of the Mortal Instruments series?

The entire series has been a favorite of mine since I read the first book. I remember reading it because I was writing a novel about demon hunters, and I wanted to read my "competition." From the first chapter, I fell in love with the characters and the whole world. It's a beautiful story and a world of compelling characters. Clare is a brilliant writer, and I'm looking forward to the final Mortal Instruments novel, even though I'm sad to see the series end.

City of Heavenly Fire will be available at all major book retailers on May 27, 2014.
