Loved City Of Lost Souls! Love Cassandra! 4 STARS,
This review is from: City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments) (Hardcover)
I love this series by Cassandra Clare! I know a lot of people are getting sick of how Cassandra has chosen to write book after book. I was also a little hesitant at first, and thought that the series should've ended at City of glass. But I just can't seem to get enough of Jace!
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, has made Jace into a different person. He's acting like him and Sebastian are close friends, and that he actually likes him. They soon find out that Jace has been bound to Sebastian, 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.
The cover of this book was so different from the other book covers in this series. But I do feel like it did justice to the story. There was a lot more romance than there was action, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Since the previous books were all so action packed I feel it was the right move by Clare to slow down a little.
The first 100 or so pages were a little slow, but as soon as Jace came back in the picture the story started moving, fast.
I did love the chemistry between Clary and Jace, again! Jace was hot as a baddie!! Still as charming as always. Clary believed that Jace could be saved, it was kind of heartbreaking actually. But I loved how Isabelle, Alec, Magnus and Simon got involved. I had missed Magnus!!
I loved how Cassandra focused a lot on Isabelle and Simon's relationship as well. That part of the story earned some extra points.
What kind of threw me off was the relationship between Clary and her brother Sebastian. I don't understand how Clary could be checking his body out, kind of creeped me out.
Overall I did enjoy City of lost souls! It does not end in a cliffhanger, which is a relief since almost every book in this series has ended in one. I cannot wait to read the next book!
Loved the book and love this series.
