Synopsis of City of Heavenly Fire: In the sixth and final book in the series Sebastian is at it again. Attacking several institutes around the globe and using the Infernal Cup to turn as many shadowhunters as possible into his loyal army of endarkened. Clary along with the majority of the shadowhunters around the world retreat to Idris to come up with a plan of attack against Sebastian.  Simon is left behind with Jordan and Maia protecting him, now that he no longer has the Mark of Cain. Magnus and Alec are currently on the outs and both struggling with the situation. Chaos surrounds them all. 

An attack on Simon's life leads to his capture by the local vampire clan. Which then leads to Jordan and Maia reaching out for help from his brothers. Most of the institutes have been evacuate with the exception of a few and Sebastian and his followers attempt an attack on the Britain institute to no avail, his first failed attack. Officially pissing Sebastian off he turns his anger towards the Praetor Lupus killing everything in his wake. 

Maia returns to her pack with a message from Sebastian for all downworlders, he will not spare those considering to aid the shadowhunters against him. Simon escapes captivity with the help of his maker Raphael and together they travel to Idris to stand as representatives for the vampires.  Magnus arrives as well to be the warlock representative. During a dinner of the downworlder representatives something goes horribly wrong, Sebastian has them drugged and taken as prisoners. Sebastian informs the Clave, the shadowhunter government, that in exchange for Jace and Clary he will return his downworlder prisoners. 

Jace, Clary, Alec, Isabelle and Simon take maters into their own hands in order to save their friends and family taken. They must travel to Edom a realm of hell inhabited by demons to save their loved ones. Things get hot and heavy in more ways than one for not only Clary and Jace but Simon and Isabelle. The story gives you ups and downs and twists and turns for this finale, leaving you laughing crying and for a few pages there shocked. 

My Thoughts: I can't even put into words how much I loved this book!! The author does an amazing job tying everything up to make it the perfect ending!! I love her writing I cannot get enough, you can feel the connection between all the characters just radiating off the pages as you read. The author just goes so deep into bringing all the books from this series together and the Infernal Instruments Series, that I cannot wait to see what happens in the next series The Dark Artifices book one Lady Midnight coming Fall 2015.  So much happens in this book it's hard to even go into the details but let me just say there was a moment when I almost lost it, you'll know what I mean when you read it. Thankfully things work themselves out by the end and I loved every second of it!!
