REVIEW: City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare

Title: City of Lost Souls
Author: Cassandra Clare
Series: The Mortal Instruments
Series #: 5
Pages: 544
Rating:  .5

The demon Lilith has been destroyed and Jace has been freed from her captivity. But when the Shadowhunters arrive to rescue him, they find only blood and broken glass. Not only is the boy Clary loves missing–but so is the boy she hates, Sebastian, the son of her father Valentine: a son determined to succeed where their father failed, and bring the Shadowhunters to their knees.

No magic the Clave can summon can locate either boy, but Jace cannot stay away—not from Clary. When they meet again Clary discovers the horror Lilith’s dying magic has wrought—Jace is no longer the boy she loved. He and Sebastian are now bound to each other, and Jace has become what he most feared: a true servant of Valentine’s evil. The Clave is determined to destroy Sebastian, but there is no way to harm one boy without destroying the other. Will the Shadowhunters hesitate to kill one of their own?
Only a small band of Clary and Jace’s friends and family believe that Jace can still be saved — and that the fate of the Shadowhunters’ future may hinge on that salvation. They must defy the Clave and strike out on their own. Alec, Magnus, Simon and Isabelle must work together to save Jace: bargaining with the sinister Faerie Queen, contemplating deals with demons, and turning at last to the Iron Sisters, the reclusive and merciless weapons makers for the Shadowhunters, who tell them that no weapon on this earth can sever the bond between Sebastian and Jace. Their only chance of cutting Jace free is to challenge Heaven and Hell — a risk that could claim any, or all, of their lives.
And they must do it without Clary. For Clary has gone into the heart of darkness, to play a dangerous game utterly alone. The price of losing the game is not just her own life, but Jace’s soul. She’s willing to do anything for Jace, but can she even still trust him? Or is he truly lost? What price is too high to pay, even for love?

Selena's POV:
I'm going to make this short and sweet, and I already had a review with lots of spoilers in it! So when your done with the book, you can go on over to my OTHER SPOILER review of this book and READ IT! (:

Anyways, I thought this book was MUCH BETTER than City of Fallen Angels. I just felt that Cassandra Clare focused more on Clary & Jace rather that Simon. I mean, Simon was in the book, yes, but not as much as the last book, and I liked that. I also liked that Cassandra switched off for point-of-views. I really liked seeing through different character's eyes here and then. 

I felt that Clary has grown SO MUCH from the last book, and the whole series in general, and I LIKE THAT! But at some parts, I just wanted to PUNCH her in the face! The decisions she made? Oh jeez. Don't get me started on THAT! 

The ending was INTENSE! I LOVED it SO MUCH that I started crying because I was depressed and because they were tears of joy! I liked how Cassandra ended it, thought the epilogue was long and I LOVED IT! :D

See, I told y'alls it was short(: But if you guys ARE done with this book, click here to read my more in detail and intense review! You'll love it! :D
