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?
Let me start this review by saying that the bastard is alive again and he’s more annoying as ever. What’s usually running around in my thoughts while reading this book was between, “Is this dude actually genuine?” or “Just kill him already, Clary!!”
No matter what happens to either of them, I’m talking about Clary and Jace is that there will always be a solution to save the other from destruction. Always. Its a bit unrealistic but deep down, I know that I want it to happen. They can’t die because they’re the freaking main characters and heroes in this series. Its their story anyway.
I am both relieved and a bit disappointed that things worked out so well for all of them. I know, its a bit weird for me to feel that way but I just do.
