Goodreads Book Summery

The New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments continues—and so do the thrills and danger for Jace, Clary, and Simon.

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

My review(Major Spoilers from first 4 books and minor from this one)

Sebastian is back and has disappeared taking Jace with him.Clary,Alec,Simon,Isabelle,and Magnus are ready to do anything to find him even bargain with dangerous enemies and allies alike.This is one of my favorite TMI books.It has great adventure with Clary going all over the world to beautiful places while being in serious danger.Alec and Magnus are going throw a rocky patch and Jace being missing hasn’t helped.I do think that Magnus needs to be more open with Alec.I really love Alec and Magnus together and think they are perfect for each other.Alec grows in confidence in each book.Camille makes an appearance so don’t worry or like me hope she is gone for good.

Cassandra Clare does a great job even with all her characters apart keeping us up with all the information we need and leaving us with everyone just the right amount of time before switching locations and characters.Clary and Jace are together(in a way)so don’t think you wouldn’t get to read these two’s entertaining verbal sparring.

Sebastian really comes into his own as a villain and character in this book.You learn so much about him.I hate him with a passion but some readers have even grown to like even love him because of what was said in this book.But not me in fact this book made me hate him more then ever and made me even more positive that he can’t be saved.In fact this quote reminds me of Sebastian:

wachte the world burningThe beginning isn’t as action packed as you get toward the end when everything is reveled and it was worse then I could even imagine.If the above quote didn’t clue you in Sebastian makes Valentine look like a sane human being.Between the fight scene at the end and the club scene between Jace and Clary this book left me breathless and very happy that Cassandra Clare’s wit and humor are back in this book.I can’t wait to read City of Heavenly Fire the last book in the series and see how it all ends.

rating:5 out of 5
