Book Review: City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare




Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy)

The Blurb:
The New York Times bestselling Mortal Instruments continues—and so do the thrills and danger for Jace, Clary, and Simon. Can the lost be reclaimed? What price is too high to pay for love? Who can be trusted when sin and salvation collide?

Love. Blood. Betrayal. Revenge.

Darkness threatens to claim the Shadowhunters in the harrowing fifth book of the Mortal Instruments series.

The Review:
While I enjoyed City of Lost Souls much better than City of Fallen Angels, I still didn't enjoy it anywhere near as much as I enjoyed the first three books in the Mortal Instruments Series. During this book, you get to read the point of view of several of the characters. I wasn't particularly interested in all of them, but it still gave you some insight into their character which was interesting. You see a lot more of Jace in this book, but it wasn't the Jace we all know and love from the first three books. I really miss the real Jace. He adds so much fun to this series. Then there's Sebastian. If you read my 10 Least Favorite Characters of 2011, you know how I feel about Sebastian. My feelings haven't changed.

Overall, I still wish this series would have ended as a trilogy, because these last two books have really disappointed me. With that being said, some of the wit, humor, and personality that I loved about those first books re-appeared in this book, and that gives me high hopes for the next book.

  1. I've heard quite a lot of people say there shouldn't even be a 4th or 5th book because the last two weren't as good...bummer, but i guess i should start the series before passing on it
