{Synopsis} –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 Thoughts} – This book pretty much picks up right where the previous left off. It centers around what happens to Jace and Johnathan {Sabastian} after the evil demon Lilth is destroyed by Simon. It’s starts off slowly, it is really difficult to get into this book. It took me so long to finish it because I had a severe lack of interest in reading it. I can guarantee I will not be re-reading this book in the future. I think that Miss Clare should have ended this series at three books as the first three had been mind blowing and captivating to me. These last two not so much.

I am not going to say much bad about it other then, I couldn’t get into it. It does end with it being set up for her to write a sixth book should she choose, but honestly I hope she doesn’t go in that direction. Sometimes, it’s best to leave a series ended. I hope that is the case with this series.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
