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 3.5 stars
This review will contain spoilers if you haven’t started this series yet.
Jace is now with Sebastian their life’s are linked you can’t hurt one without hurting the other one. The Clave has now decided to have fewer people looking for him, the others do not agree they carry on looking for him. Together they come up with a plan and the shadow hunters fight for Jace.
I actually enjoyed this book a lot more than I thought I would. Before i started reading this book i thought it would be everything would happen at the end but that didn’t happen lets just say i didn’t expect the things that did happen. Everybody is looking for Jace they all believe he can be saved, they are all looking for something to break the bond between Jace and Sebastian. The romance in this book there was so much between Simon and Isabelle (i really hope they end up being a thing), Maia and Jordan (love them), but isn’t all good Magnus and Alec have there issues also.
Clary doesn’t take orders well or either being told no and that is why I don’t really like her, at the end though she did try to do right. Is it bad that I did like Sebastian weirdly i felt bad for him that was at the beginning of the book towards the end we had the true him coming through. Jace… i do have a soft spot for him i always have he is the most troubled one and in the epilogue i just wanted someone to hug him.
Like with all Cassandra Clare’s book the book is filled with long detailed paragraphs which is great for word building as it doesn’t take a lot to think about what is happening. At first I did think it was slow however i was only reading half a chapter a night as i felt like i was going into a reading slump, it got to the weekend and i was only half way through but i did finish it in two days. So i think with these books you must have time to just sit and read a good chunk at a time.
