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 can’t believe that I managed to read this book, the whole 725 pages of this book within three days. I don’t think that I have been more accomplished of a reading progress of mine considering how thick and huge this book series is. Its just a huge deal to me so just deal with it. 

I like the additional character of the Emma Carstairs, Julian and his other Balckthorn siblings. It just makes it more interesting to read from a girl’s point of view. 

The ending falls perfectly in place. The shadowhunters didn’t have to kill the bad shadowhunters which could hurt them too much. Killing others who have familiar faces to the people they once used to know. That has got to hurt! Sebastian, oh my! My heart broke for him as the more demon side of him disappeared and he became the Jonathan that he was supposed to be if Valentine didn’t make him a demon in a human’s body. He definitely deserves more. 

My most favourite scene of all was the epilogue for Luke and Jocelyn’s wedding. Jem Carstairs and Tessa Gray makes an appearance and I couldn’t be happier to read more about them. If only Will was still with them. Haha I wish! 

Still, I love the ending. It was perfect. What with the fact that Jace wants to continue carrying on the Herondale name instead of keeping his name as a Lightwood. And also the slightly obvious hint that they might marry one day and live in the Herondale’s mansion!! Yes please!!
