Spoiler alert! If you’re a Mortal Instruments fan, then don’t read any further until you’ve inhaled your own copy of the sixth and final installment in the series, City of Heavenly Fire. That’s because there are few things in life more satisfying than a long-awaited happy ending, which is exactly what Clare delivers when perennially separated lovers Clary and Jace are finally united in their fight against Clary’s brother, Sebastian. Unfortunately, the 725-page novel is hampered by the memory of last summer’s lackluster film adaptation of City of Bones and Clare’s efforts to set up her next book series. But Fire nonetheless burns bright with grand battles, intricate plot twists, and romantic wrap-ups for all. B+
