WW4BB Presents: City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare is out! Book 5 Mortal Instruments Series

Posted by Unknown on 10:43:00 am

The demon Lilith has been destroyed and Jace has been freed from her captivity. But when the Shadowhunters arrive to rescue him, they find only blood and broken glass. Not only is the boy Clary loves missing–but so is the boy she hates, Sebastian, the son of her father Valentine: a son determined to succeed where their father failed, and bring the Shadowhunters to their knees.

No magic the Clave can summon can locate either boy, but Jace cannot stay away—not from Clary. When they meet again Clary discovers the horror Lilith’s dying magic has wrought—Jace is no longer the boy she loved. He and Sebastian are now bound to each other, and Jace has become what he most feared: a true servant of Valentine’s evil. The Clave is determined to destroy Sebastian, but there is no way to harm one boy without destroying the other. Will the Shadowhunters hesitate to kill one of their own?

Only a small band of Clary and Jace’s friends and family believe that Jace can still be saved — and that the fate of the Shadowhunters’ future may hinge on that salvation. They must defy the Clave and strike out on their own. Alec, Magnus, Simon and Isabelle must work together to save Jace: bargaining with the sinister Faerie Queen, contemplating deals with demons, and turning at last to the Iron Sisters, the reclusive and merciless weapons makers for the Shadowhunters, who tell them that no weapon on this earth can sever the bond between Sebastian and Jace. Their only chance of cutting Jace free is to challenge Heaven and Hell — a risk that could claim any, or all, of their lives.

And they must do it without Clary. For Clary has gone into the heart of darkness, to play a dangerous game utterly alone. The price of losing the game is not just her own life, but Jace’s soul. She’s willing to do anything for Jace, but can she even still trust him? Or is he truly lost? What price is too high to pay, even for love?

Darkness threatens to claim the Shadowhunters in the harrowing fifth book of the Mortal Instruments series



I started reading The Mortal Instruments Series on a suggestion. I fell in love with it right away. Cassandra Clare has a unique way of involving all of her main characters and making you feel for each one. I, for one, was glad that she did not end the series as planned with City of Glass. There were too many questions left especially regarding Jace and Clary. I am glad that those are being answered. City of Lost Souls is a little different from the previous books as it takes us a bit deeper into the personal relationships of the characters rather than the good v. evil fight. I am all for that! So long as it keeps it real and is an integral part of the story. I think that what is going on at the end of CoLS will play a major part in how the story will pan out. I have my assumptions, but I will (impatiently) wait for the next installment, City of Heavenly Fire (hope I got that right). Enjoy your reading!!
