CITY OF LOST SOULS is the latest release (May 2012) from Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series. In their continuing war against the demons and Jonathan Morgenstern, Clary and the Shadowhunters must now face a new enemy that was once a respected member of their own. With Jace missing and presumably under the control of Sebastian (aka Jonathan), Clary's decision to go against orders will once again risk the lives of everyone she knows and loves.
Several weeks after the disappearance of Jace and Sebastian, Clary is frustrated when the Clave no longer place priority on Jace's recovery. When the Clave clear Clary of any wrongdoing or involvement in the missing duo's whereabouts, Clary decides it is time to cash in on the Seelie Queen's promise. Knowing that this is probably one of the biggest mistakes of her life, Clary is once again thrown into a world of misconceptions and double talk. But it is a stunned Clary who will find both Jace and Sebastian trolling the halls of the Institute looking for a secret to uncover an ancient power.
Once again Luke and his pack of werewolves, as well as the Isabelle, Simon, Alex and Magnus will have their hands full protecting the Shadowhunters and the others from Sebastian's cruel and evil ideals. But when a severely injured Luke lay dying from his wounds, it is Clary who will make the decision, to disobey the orders in search of the young man she once knew. With the help of Magnus Bane, Clary is propelled into an ever-changing dimension on the other side of the world.
Alec's relationship with Magnus begins to unravel as his jealousy and mortality shriek their reality with every passing day.Read more ›
It has been two weeks since the night on the rooftop. Two weeks since Jace told her that he would be right back. Jace has disappeared from the rooftop along with her brother Sebastian. In those two weeks Clary has been interrogated by the brothers to see if she had any idea of what happen that nigh on the roof, and if she was a part of it. The search for Jace and Sebastian has been the Clave top priority. But after two weeks other events have taken place, stopping their search for Sebastian and Jace. Not giving up Clary, Simon and the Lightwoods continue searching for Jace. Their fear is that there is no way to harm one boy without destroying the other, as they are bonded together. If the Clave found out about this they will use Jace to kill Sebastian, not caring that Jace will die. While Simon and the Lightwoods figure out how to kill Sebastian and not Jace, Clary takes up her own suicidal plan in order to save her boyfriend. After all Clary was the one who ask the angle to return her love to her, this is what brought her brother back as well. Can Clary fix her mistake, or end up killing the person she loves the most in order to set the world in balance again?
Cassandra Clare is almost done with this series.Read more ›
P.S. Runner-up to Sebastian in this book: Valentine's secret domicile. That's the way to see the world!
One of my biggest problems with this book was Sebastian. For weeks after seeing the trailer for this book I was Tweeting, Facebooking, and telling anyone who came within a ten foot radius of me how KICK-BUTT Sebastian was going to be. I mean, how could he not with wings of fire and his declaration of "I am going to burn down the world"? But I am sad to say that he wasn't.That is not to say that he wasn't creepy or evil, because he was as creepy as hell, but more so creepy in a 'I-want-to-make-out-with-my-sister-despite-knowing-FOR-LEGIT-that-she-is-my-actual-sister' rather than 'He's-climbing-in-your-windows-He's-snatchin-your-people up-Hide-your-kids-hide-your wife-And-hide-your-husband' kind of creepy (a la Antoine Dodson).Read more ›
