About the Book

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:

This fifth book continues the story, where the previous book left it. And in the beginning was truly interesting, but…

I don’t know why, but this book appeared to be from these books, in which you like the story, but you can read only in the slowest way you can. Clary was boring, Jace was dumb & Sebastian was as always evil. At times everything was so boring, that I had to push myself to continue to read – I should finish the whole series.

It started to be more interesting in the final 70 pages, which I finished at once. And the only interesting story was the “love” between Simon and Isabelle & Jordan and Maya. I dunno why, but it was absolutely lost time for me.

However, there is one more book to read, which I hope will be better than this one.
