  • Reflection, Connection & Personal Response:

This third book of the series the Mortal Instruments is another book that I love and I think that it is as amazing as both of the other books Cassandra Clare has written. This book starts off with the permission of the Clave to go to Idris. According to the colorful description of the city, I would find the city an amazing and pretty place. I think that this book is called ‘The City of Glass’ because of the city, Idris. I picture this place as a place with buildings covered and built in glass and everywhere you look, it is transparent and blue. Another color I see is green. From the description of the lake I also see green. I can relate to this because once in a movie, I saw a city that was entirely made of glass. It was gorgeous even though it wasn’t real. Personally I think that so far, I am in love with the series of the Mortal Instruments. I find it so good that I had already read three of the books in two days! I find that it has an amazing description of everything in the book so it makes it seem like this book is placed in the real world. Sometimes, when they describe some scary things, I can see the picture of the scary things and I would get so scared. I personally would recommend this series to anyone since it is such a good series that I personally think everyone would enjoy.
