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? (From Goodreads, 26th June 2013)
Okay so this is a difficult review to write as it is the 5th and last book in The Mortal Instruments series. I don’t want to give things away. So I am going to keep it short and not as detailed as some of my other reviews.
After finding City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments #4) not on par with the first three books in the series. City of Lost Souls makes up for that. Loved it. It was fantastic and set me up for getting started on the prequel series The Infernal Devices.
This is an exciting novel that keeps you turning to the next page. But if you have got to this novel you obviously enjoy the series!
