My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In City of Lost Souls Lilith, the demon has been destroyed and Jace and Sebastian are missing. Clary, not getting any help from the Clave, decides to go out and find them herself. Alec, Simon and Isabelle tag along, of course!!
When Clary and Jace meet she feels that he's changed. Hanging around her evil brother, Sebastian/Jonathan, has made Jace into a different person. He's acting like him and Sebastian/Jonathan are close friends, and that he actually likes him. They soon find out that Jace has been bound to Sebastian/Jonathan, and killing one of them would kill the other as well. Since the Clave is determined to destroy Sebastian, Clary and her friends must find a way to save Jace.
From there, Clary ends up on a rollercoaster of a ride, of heartbreak, and danger. She makes some decisions that she will regret, but you feel right along with her.
You get to see everyone work together in the fifth installment of The Mortal Instruments. Magnus, Alec, Izzie, Simon, Jordan, and Mia. They all come together in an effort to save Jace and, ultimately, Clary.
I can’t say enough at how much I love this book, and the series. We are yet again, left with a huge cliffhanger, keeps up wanting the final book now, lol. Even if you did not like the previous book, City of Fallen Angels (Mortal Instruments, Book 4) Be sure to check out Cassandra Clare's other series called the Infernal Devices if you have not read them yet, they are amazing as well. It’s a Prequel to The Mortal Instruments, with ancestors of these characters, and some immortal characters are in both, like Magnus Bane to name one.
