Synopsis

What price is too high to pay, even for love? Plunge into fifth installment the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series and “prepare to be hooked” (Entertainment Weekly).

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.

I thought it was a good book it carried on with the story from the previous books but still kept you reading, and wondering what was going to happen eventhough it did lead you in that direction and I enjoyed how clary actually started to fight and not be such a "princess" . I am looking forward to the next one which should be a war.

This was a well-written book with a bit of a twist on the "hidden" princess storyline. The heroine is spunky and the hero is brooding. It's a fun read--I enjoyed it enough that I bought the series for my 15-year-old niece and she loved it enough to declare me "an awesome auntie"!

Before you start The Mortal Instruments, be sure to read the prequel, The Infernal Devices duo--it sets the stage for your imagination as you delve into the magical world of Shadowhunters, Downworlders and Demons. You can't help but be captured by the characters' lives in this supernatural series. You'll be in their grip until you've finished this fifth and last book in the series--or is it the last?

It was good but,I skipped the parts about Jordan and maia it really felt like they where just fillers so the book was longer.... I would have left them out and then the epilogue could have been shorter. Good set of books anyways props to the author.
