“‘Flectere si nequeo superos, Acheronta movebo.’ ‘If I cannot move Heaven, I will raise Hell.’”
Welcome back to the Mortal Instruments series, City of Lost Souls, book #5 in the six book series. I have to say, I love this series so much. And this book… THIS BOOK.
If you think you loved these characters before, you will love them even more. With each book, we learn more about the strength each of these individuals possess. The difference of fighting styles, the power of sheer will, and the unyeilding strength of love.
I’m thinking next time I read a large series like this, I’ll do one review for the entire series because if I tell you ANYTHING of what was happening in this book, I’ll likely spoil the first few books for you. And I just can’t do that.
So how about a couple quote teasers!
She knew how strong he was, but she still felt a shock as he carried her to the bed and laid her down gently among the scattered pillows, sliding his body over hers, one smooth gesture that reminded her what all those Marks on his body were for. Strength. Grace. Lightness of touch.
“My heart is your heart,” he said. “My hands are your hands.”
Basically, if you haven’t read this book yet or this series, you may want to. 🙂
Rating: 4.5 stars!
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.
