Title: City of Lost Souls
Series: The Mortal Instruments #5
Author: Cassandra Clare
What price is too high to pay, even for love? When Jace and Clary meet again, Clary is horrified to discover that the demon Lilith’s magic has bound her beloved Jace together with her evil brother Sebastian, and that Jace has become a servant of evil. The Clave is out to destroy Sebastian, but there is no way to harm one boy without destroying the other. As Alec, Magnus, Simon, and Isabelle wheedle and bargain with Seelies, demons, and the merciless Iron Sisters to try to save Jace, Clary plays a dangerous game of her own. The price of losing is not just her own life, but Jace’s soul. She’s willing to do anything for Jace, but can she still trust him? Or is he truly lost?
Love. Blood. Betrayal. Revenge. Darkness threatens to claim the Shadowhunters in the harrowing fifth book of the Mortal Instruments series.
Here we are again with the shenanigans of the ‘this era’ Shadowhunters (you know I think I said this in the last review!)
So what do we know? Without spoilers this is hard! So basically evil is back getting ready to loose demons on the earth. Or is it? What is going on?!
Sebastian aka Jonathan is back and has Jace under his control who in turn sort of has Clary under control because of luuuuuurve….
‘There never has been any going back. Not with you.’
And what happens is just bigger, dangerous and more hairbrained than ever!
Here are a few of my thoughts …..
I really didn’t like Simon in the 1st 3 books but now I want to mummy cuddle him and I want to sit and cry with him! Honestly he is the most real, human person in this book, even though he isnt!
I also wanted to boot Alec right in his private parts, what an idiot! For several reasons. He is like a 12 year old.
And Clary, oh jeez. A teenager in love is sickening!!! First of all I enjoyed all the declarations of love….but there were eventually so many, I got a bit sick of it!!!!!!
As in the last book loved Isabelle even more. Her character growth has been amazing….and she better get her act together and fess up to Simon!!
Magnus, I love him so much! Him getting Simons name wrong every time had me laughing! Reminded me of Colonel K in Dangermouse getting Penfolds name wrong all the time!
Anyway….next book please!
