April 14, 5: Hi Cassie!!! I just finished reading RSOM and every single sentence was perfect and April 12, 9: So about the eldest curses someone on said that Max Lightwood-Bane could be one, is So this is my least favorite kind of announcement and the kind I try to avoid having to make. Unfortunately, the time has come where the situation has pretty much been decided for me.
Lots of you may be familiar with it because of that. Unfortunately while I was on tour with Holly I was having more and more severe symptoms, and when I returned home I was having pain so bad that I was passing out. My symptoms have been affecting my work, my energy endometrosis can cause anemia because of internal bleeding my ability to even get up and go downstairs. Going to Austin for the book signing I just did was a matter of a LOT of codeine and more blood than I would have ideally liked in my airplane travel.
Being in so much pain has a debilitating effect not just on me but on my work. Especially after reading about Tessa; Clary is just not that great of a character. And so many of the choices she made in this book were beyond questionable.
I get that she loves Jace, but the world is a lot bigger than Jace Herondale, Lightwood, Morgenstern, Voldemort, what the fuck ever he wants to be called. I know he messed up big in City of Fallen Angels , and I will call him out for it all day long, but he really had a pure and sweet redemption arc in this, that I think was handled very healthily and very realistically.
And my otp are living their best lives. I think Izzy is my favorite character in this entire universe. Like, every book I fall more and more in love with her. And in City of Lost Souls , seeing her learn what it means to be vulnerable and that it is okay… friends, I have a lot of feelings. And seeing her finally take down her walls and give her heart away to someone who she deems as worthy?
More beautiful than words. Him realizing his worth and value at the end of this book? It meant everything to me. I feel like Alec has constantly been treating him like shit, honestly.
But this time it will be on more equal ground. Oh, and I want to know everything about his father immediately! And I think that very much benefitted Alec.
And like, she always tries to be so strict, after just being so lenient. The blessing. How perfect. Miss me with abuse apologist storylines forever, please. I need so much more from her and her court. But I love his motive, I love him coming back from the dead, and I loved this magical, moving apartment. Did he show you a good time, at least? Because I would have.
I thought finally, after City of Glass , we were past this, but now with Sebastian coming back, she just doubled-down on the incest. Even in Clockwork Prince I felt like the Tessa going undercover to trick Nate and pretend to be his lover and was gross and unnecessary. And I still feel really gross about the things that Clary did with Jace while Sebastian was in control or whatever. I mean, on top of the fact that he actually attempts to rape her, too. A really gross, skeezy, uncomfortable hot mess.
And you will like it. And in City of Lost Souls their relationship is really magnified. And I felt like he even forced her into a relationship, since he refused to be her friend ONLY something more.
Brb, throwing up forever. I love you, Maia. I always have been. I always will be. Just being your friend would kill me. The style just felt so much more cohesive and the story felt so much more compelling. This was also the first book that felt like it had a lot of plot and intricate things happening constantly. And there were so many small nods at Clockwork Prince that warmed my heart so very much.

If - and it's not very likely to happen, but IF - the world ends in , and this one has not come out, then I'll be so pissed that even the zombies, or demons, or Mother Nature, whatever, will shit their pants in fear of me.
I'll be THAT pissed. You better watch your sorry ass if you plan to end the world for me before I've had a chance to read this book. I, for one, think it's going to end in some supernatural way. Either it's zombies - which I probably fear the most, since I'm shit-scared of zombies - or it's demons.
Pick one. Yes, it probably sounds very weird that I'm sickly scared of zombies, but they'd still shit their pants if they decided to end the world before I got to read 'City of Lost Souls'. Hm, ain't that confusing.
Let's see it like this.
I'm scared of them now, but if you get me pissed enough Okay, so I still don't picture Clary like that D Yes, I like it D Bu awesome! Dec 12, Soumi rated it it was amazing Shelves: By The Angel!
Do I actually need to review? Holy Hell! What am I gonna write? Kill me and you kill Jace, too. As he binds him to Jace, the two became irrecoverably inseparable, what one feels, the other feels the same, the pain, the joy everything. Jace the one Clary loves, and Sebastian the o ne she hates most, and now they are one. The clave wants to summon e By The Angel! But you are. His entire psychopathic personally was build up on the way he was treated by his father Valentine, unloved and to be ruthless.
I say Sebastian is the heart of CoLS. Without him, the whole story would have fallen flat, and Miss Clare did a brilliant job by bringing him back with more vengeance.
I always wanted you. The book was both my solace and torment, as darkness and light were aligned together, casting the perfect shade. The story gradually gotten faster, page by page and at the ending the action was mesmerizing, as if I was visualizing the whole scene, breathlessly. It will be very wrong to say CoLS is only focused on Jace, Clary and Sebastian, each and every character played very crucial part, especially Simon. Oh Gosh, I love this guy, he has grown into such understanding and responsible guy, his transformation is notable throughout the entire series.
Also the on and off romance between Simon and Izzy took a whole new turn, I really appreciate how Cassandra Clare focused on Isabelle and Simon's relationship as well. As I mentioned earlier that the book has a lot more heart breaking, I referred to Alec and Magnus, such a lovely couple who let their relationship at a stake, which is entirely unacceptable.
I bet, if a chance is given to the fans of TMI series, they will fight over this topic for the entire day, without being tired. His physical appearance is similar to Will with long and slender fingers and dark hair. He was also a shadowhunter before be came one of the silent brothers. I have a strong feelings of Brother Zachariah being Jem. I think Will married to Tessa and from there all Herondale decedents come from, later Will died in some fight like shadowhunters do.
But I think when Jem was dying silent brothers saved him by turning him into one of them cause he is the youngest one among them he can speak using mouth. His silvery hair may be turned back into black after being saved and stopped using demon powder. Any that's not Will for sure cause Jace is Will's decendent, not any other Herondale's. That means in Clockwork Princess one of the boys probably gonna die. Being a Silent Brother is life, Clary Fray. But if you mean I remember my life before the Brotherhood, I do.
Clary took a deep breath. Before the Brotherhood? Was there ever anyone you would have died for? Two people, said Brother Zachariah. There are memories that time does not erase, Clarissa. Ask your friend Magnus Bane, if you do not believe me. Forever does not make loss forgettable, only bearable. So Brother Zachariah is sure one of the boys from ID and who ever it is has no chance on being with Tessa cause silent brothers can not be romantically engaged.
All of the above are just assumptions, Best way to find out by throwing Brother Zachariah in pond full of ducks, if he runs sure he is Will, if he doesn't he is Jem. The Herondales have a bad thing for Ducks View all 78 comments.
Lots of action. Jace and Clary still can't catch a break. Really the span of the whole series they are apart pining for each other with like a few weeks here and there that they can actually be together. Teenage angst at it's highest. I really wish she would have let them be together a little more in this series. I understand it's a ya series but if you want them to be this awesome powerfully connected couple that you just can't forget then they actually have to be a couple for a little bit of time.
Just sayin'! I think they were together more in this book then in the last 4 but it was still tainted since Jace wasn't really Jace. I was glad that Clary started to finally kick some ass. She has been pretty wimpy standing around while everyone fights and gets hurt in the last 4 books. This one she was trained and kicking ass with the best of em.
Loved Simon even more in this book. He is such a great guy and brave. I just wish him and Izzy would get together they have such a strong connection.
I was so glad Simon's sister didn't turn her back on him like his mother. I was so disappointed in Alec.
I don't know what the hell was going through his mind in this book but he was way over the line. I don't blame Magnus at all for ending things with him. Although that break up scene was so heartbreaking. I don't really know how I feel about Maia and Jordon. Jordon I think is great and Maia too but I don't really feel it with them together Idk. Sebastian was gross, creepy and evil all in the same breath. Jocelyn truly gets on my nerves. She is the most unsupportive mom ever.
I get so mad that she doesn't like Jace she doesn't even give him a chance. No wonder Clary runs off and does shit herself her mom is an over the top bitch that lies, treats her like she is 2 and doesn't like the love of Clary's life.
Poor Luke, losing his sister getting stabbed and almost dying. I'm really liking Brother Zachariah, but I wonder why he seems to want to help Jace so much. Is there some connection there?

If I could have won the lottery for every time I wanted to smack people in this book, I would have an infinite amount of money right now.
But, I digress. Welcome to the world of magic and twats. Just kidding: I don't care what anyone thinks but I don't think that Simon and Isabelle should be a couple.
I know it has the whole, let's everyone in the group be with someone vibe going, but I just don't see them as a couple. Ca If I could have won the lottery for every time I wanted to smack people in this book, I would have an infinite amount of money right now.
Can't anyone just be single? Magnus Bane is the coolest one of all and that's just a fact. And can people and things just quit coming after Jace! I mean for shite's sake, we just got out of one mess with him and into another one.
He's not himself in this book for reasons. Clary's good ole brother Sebastian is back and buddies with Jace. It's so not a good thing.
Clary gets sucked into their world and all kinds of crazy stuff is going down with them.
I really love Jordan and Maia, that's all I have to say about them. They are both good people and werewolves. There are several bad to the bone moments that I loved! From angels to demons and a crazy vampire kid on a rampage. Although one thing she did, classic! Loved it! Alec made me mad at what he wanted to do to Magnus. I thought, "dude are you for real?
I dread things that might be coming! Melissa Martin's Reading List View all 4 comments. Sogar an Handlung hat es m. View all 8 comments. Special favors and special torments. I think this may have been my favorite book in the series so far, and I could barely stand to put it down.
Simon has come into his own so well as the Daylighter—as this protective, self-sacrificing, noble little hero—and Izzy is so tough, such a rock for her loved ones. That's my boyfriend. Some of the incidents between these two—especially involving Alec—broke my heart over and over. Where do I even begin? My heart hurts for them. Before I started this series, if you had told me they would become one of my all-time favorite OTPs, I would have laughed in disbelief, but here we are.
I love the romances that Cassandra Clare builds, and the agonizingly slow, angsty progression between Clary and Jace has to be my favorite.
She turned and looked at him.
I just always have. It describes her perfectly when the other Shadowhunters say that Clary essentially charges into any given situation, regardless of risk, and finds a way to fight through it. Content warnings for attempted rape, homophobia, and slut-shaming all challenged.
You can find this review and more on my blog , or you can follow me on twitter , bookstagram , or facebook! Cassandra Clare did a wonderful job once again! I don't want to give anything away by describing the things that have happened here, but the series already becomes more and more interesting.
This sequel is actually a much better response compared to the City of Fallen Angels because all the events here were pretty much powerful and more remarkable.
I love how it started off as a bang Cassandra Clare did a wonderful job once again! I love how it started off as a bang! Although all throughout the book I must admit that I was really getting frustrated especially because of how badly things were turning for Jace. I mean, c'mon, why does Cassandra Clare keep torturing Jace and making him suffer all the time? It's fricking unfair! My boy always saves the day!
He played a great part here and I think this is the book where he really shines best! When it comes to Clary , her character improved here although I prefer her character development in City of Glass but still, I like how bold she was here and how she resorted to critical-thinking. Alec and Magnus' relationship here was tested big time and I don't know what to feel about what happened to them here.
As for Isabelle , once again this chick astounded me. As usual, she's a fierce, in-your-face character and that's what I loved about her! Maia and Jordan's relationship was also highlighted here.
I love the sweet reunion! And of course, Sebastian. Blimey, I am not usually a fan of villains but it's so ironic how I fangirled over a bad guy all throughout the book! The action scenes were great and although it happened at the final chapters, they still didn't fail to bring out the adrenaline rush.
The ending, on the other hand, was a blast and was well-executed. It had a surprise factor that will leave you wanting for more. All in all, it was a great come back. Cassandra Clare writes beautifully, but then I have always thought so! This book is really a world I could get lost in!
View all 35 comments. Jun 06, Bgurl don't h8 me cuz I'm honestful rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Snark. A lot, actually! As the posting at The Praetor House dormitories proves. No howling. No silver. Clothes must be worn at all times.
No fighting. No biting. Mark all your food before you put it in the communal refrigerator. According to Sebastian: What difference does a week make? That would be insane. Let's see That means nothing can kill me, right?
Inanimate objects can accidentally kill you. Is Snark A Deadly Sin? Greed, envy, gluttony, irony, pedantry, lust, and spanking. City of Lost Souls is so chock-full-o-snark, this list could have been a hell of a lot longer. For information about my rating system, see my profile page. Click Me Baby!
Coming Soon View all 39 comments. Feb 23, James Trevino rated it liked it. Much, much better than City of Fallen Angels.
But again, it takes a while until things get going. The final chapters are great, but the middle part of the book It read like filler and it felt like filler. The book could also do without Clary dramatizing about every single detail in her life in every frea Much, much better than City of Fallen Angels.
The book could also do without Clary dramatizing about every single detail in her life in every freaking scene. It's one of those cases when, in a book, side characters actually have a more interesting story than the main ones Simon, Alec. That being said, City of Fallen Angels reminded me of City of Glass and that is good considering CoG is still far and away the best in the series , even though it could have been cut in half and not lose anything of importance.

View all 15 comments. Sep 09, Gemma rated it liked it. People keep leaving me annoying comments about how if I have nothing nice to say about the new Mortal Instruments books, then I "don't have to read them!
No matter how much my loathing for City of Fallen Angels made me disgusted with Clare's decision to write a second trilogy, I have to finish these books. I've invested my time, money, energy and love yes, love into them, and that is why I keep reading.
Because I hope things are going to pick up and make the expansion of the series worth it, even if I don't really believe it's going to happen. After reading the first hundred pages or so, my hopes rose a little bit; stuff was happening.
There was an apparent plot and people were moving along with it; it was a definite improvement over the standing and talking and whining that made of the first three-fourths of City of Fallen Angels.
I started thinking that maybe Clare hasn't lost her touch after all. But the further I read, the more I realized that she has, at least with this series. City of Lost Souls felt like the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie; yes, there's a story, and no, it's not bad, but it just isn't as fun as it once was. In this one, the energy and adventure has been drained away.
Like Clockwork Prince, this book is significantly less funny than its predecessors. Unlike Clockwork Prince, it doesn't work to Lost Soul's advantage. The lack of humor seemed to be for lack of trying, like Clare didn't have the energy to make this book funny. The few lines intended to be humorous feel tired and haphazard with the exception of one expertly-timed Star Wars reference. Instead, Clare tries to substitute humor for angst.
Lost Souls is absolutely angst-ridden. Clary's angry and manic, Alec's mopey and meditative, Isabelle is also mopey, as well as confused Because I do actually care about these characters and their problems, more or less, the melodrama works to a certain extent. The Isabelle-Simon situation was particularly interesting and rather sweet. But overall, the excessive moodiness of the characters only weighed the book down and made it seem more heavy and depressing and boring than it should have been.
It also made once-likable characters seem more annoying than they should have been. Clary, in particular has really began to grate on me. I mean, sure she's determined to save the man she loves, but she's gone from impulsive to idiotic, making completely irrational decisions and being totally unreasonable when anyone around her questions them. The determination she had in the previous books has been blown up to a new and disagreeable extreme that makes me dislike her a little bit more with each passing page.
Another character who deteriorates before our eyes is Magnus Bane. It pains me to say it, but it's true. In Lost Souls, he's neither fun nor funny. All his glitter and panache seems to have melted into prissiness and irritability; he's more annoying than anything. And that's a tragedy, because he used to be almost as awesome as Jace Wayland himself. Jace Wayland, not Lightwood. I think Jace got boring after his name changed. Remember the impossibly arrogant, beautiful, hilarious, butt-kicking Jace of the first three books?
I haven't really seen him since the end of City of Glass. I know he's been kind of possessed since then, but that really doesn't change the fact that I, as a reader, miss his old character. Even when he's himself, his love for Clary seems to have sapped away his old wit and humor, and that ridiculously big ego is gone. I have to mention that the Jace-Clary love thing has also grown rather stale.
The more I read about it, the less I believe it. Clary says she'd die for Jace, she'd do anything for him, but I feel like she's more in love with the idea than the person. She's an average girl who suddenly has a hot, funny, smart, strong, awesome guy saying he's in love with her. What girl is going to say no to that? But when it comes down to it, I don't feel that it's the deep love it needs to be, more of a love of the concept of her having a guy like him as her boyfriend. I dunno. That's just what it felt like to me.
I was fine with their relationship when it was on the side, but now that it's in the limelight, it seems a bit more transparent. Also growing increasingly transparent is the plot.
Yes, it's existent, but the more I thought about it as I was reading it, the more it became rather ridiculous. Clary's running around trying to save Jace; Jace and Sebastian are plotting something bad; everyone else goes through relationship drama. And it's something, and it's substantial but it's And not fun. And pointless. Clare keeps attempting to incorporate the apocalypse and throw the entire balance of the world and mankind into danger, but it really doesn't work.
I mean, Magnus makes vague references to visions about the world flowing with blood, but other than that I don't know. At the end of it all, the plot seemed meager, like an crime-show mystery, set up, worried over and then solved because that's just how these things go.
The conflict seemed too contrived, and the resolution seemed too easy. I'm sorry; I know I'm beating a dead horse, but the lack of a need for a second trilogy grows more painfully obvious with each chapter.
After reading Lost Souls with little memory of CoFA, I realized how unnecessary the last installment was; all I need to know from that book is that Sebastian and Jace have now become bound. And that's it. But it's not just that. There's a point in this book, towards the end, where I'm figuring out a way to wrap this entire series up within the next forty pages.
And it's there; Cassandra Clare could easily do it, but she won't, she'll drag it out for a whole other book only to have it end the way it did in City of Glass, more or less, and if that's the case, then why bother with Lost Souls?
But then when you think about it, why bother with the second trilogy? Why not just have it end at the beautiful place where it did? Actually I do; writing is like prostitution and she sold out to make more money.
It's not as though the Mortal Instrument books are the only things she can write. She has talent as an author; her sentences have a generally nice flow to them and she can easily develop likable characters and decent or better plots. I feel that she has more to offer than half-baked revivals of a finished series. Oh, well. It's her decision, and if she wants to keep writing MI books, then so be it. And because I am tied to this series, I will keep reading, if only to watch that which I once loved turn slowly to ashes.
Less than a week to go and I am currently out of money and time for a trek to Costco, as well as the typical series recap where I go back and reread all the books for I probably won't be reading City of Lost Souls before June. I actually have a secret plan to avoid this book for as long as possible, preferably until next April, so when I finish it, I'll only have a couple months of waiting for City of Heavenly Fire.
Plus I can continue to hope and believe that this is an excellent installment and that City of Fallen Angels was just a glitch, and that Cassandra Clare is still full of ideas and plots and creativity. Do I really believe this? Not because I don't enjoy these books, but because I question the motives behind writing a second trilogy; in my opinion, it was over with City of Glass, and everything beyond that was published so she could make more money.
You'd have to wonder why. I'll carry on with this series until the end, bitter though it very well may be. Please don't let it be. Is Cassandra Clare so blatantly switching from writing fantasy to writing crappy romance?
Because that's what the cover would suggest. This looks like one of those poorly written paperbacks they sell on a revolving wire stand for five bucks at Fred Meyers.
I mean, seriously. I can't believe this isn't just a teaser. Or fan-made. Because some of those were better than this one It's ridiculously cheesy, and quite frankly I'm kinda irritated with Clary right now and I don't feel that she deserves another cover. When are they going to do it? Are you in Europe? Sebastian mentioned something called the Seventh Sacred Site. It looks like a sort of doorway, and demons can be summoned through it. Please, Simon. Tell them as quickly as you can.
He wants war, a total war with the Shadowhunters. He has about forty or fifty Nephilim ready to follow him. Simon, he wants to burn the world down. We have to do anything we can to stop him. If things are that dangerous, you need to get yourself out of there. She sounded tired. But it might be too late. Simon was dimly aware that everyone else in the truck was staring at him, concern on their faces. Clary, listen. It can be used on either Jace or Sebastian without hurting the other, and according to the… person who gave it to us, it might be able to cut them apart.
Cut them apart? He said it would burn all the evil out of the one we used it on. Simon felt his head throb, and hoped he sounded more confident than he did.
It would burn them apart without killing them? I mean, there is some chance it would destroy Sebastian. Her alarm was palpable. Simon, what have you— Her voice broke off, and Simon was suddenly filled with a clamor of emotion—surprise, anger, terror.
He cried out, sitting bolt upright. But there was only silence, ringing in his head. We have to talk. The light in the hallway was bright behind Sebastian, turning him into a silhouette. Something no one else knew. He turned to face her, his back to the headboard. This should fit you too. She remembered the way, in Idris, his touch had burned her like acid.
I sent him ahead. The gold ring blazed there, like a signal fire. Do you think the Queen is such a fool that she would send you off to retrieve these for her without knowing you would keep them for yourself? She wanted you to bring this here, where I would find it. The Fair Folk are an old people; we do not make hasty decisions but wait to see in what direction the wind blows first. She likes to be on the winning side of things, the Seelie Queen. And that side will be ours, Clary. Your place is with us.
With me. Your blood cries out for power, like mine does. Whatever your mother may have done to twist your conscience, you know who you are. She sided with the Clave against her family. This is your chance to rectify her mistake. I mean it. Especially in bed.
He was so much taller than she was, almost exactly as much taller as Jace was. He leaned in close to her when he spoke, and his voice was low and rough.
If the Queen really could eavesdrop on her conversations, then she might know about Glorious already. She snatched the ring from his hand, and threw it to the ground. He looked at her incredulously as she drew her foot back. He was taller, broader, and stronger than she was, but she had the element of surprise. He doubled over, choking, and she snatched the stele from his weapons belt. Then she ran. Magnus jerked the wheel to the side so fast that the tires screeched.
Isabelle shrieked. They bumped up onto the shoulder of the road, under the shadow of a copse of partly leafless trees. The next thing Simon knew, the doors were open and everyone was tumbling out onto the blacktop. The sun was going down, and the headlights of the truck were on, lighting them all with an eerie glow.
He wants to be where he is. Really bad. Make—dark Shadowhunters? But they would be dedicated to the eradication of mankind instead of its salvation. A light misty drizzle had begun to fall. We have an hour and a half—two hours, at most—to stop them. You Portaled half of Idris to Brocelind Plain. It will take a long time for her to re-form and she will be weak for years. Unless Sebastian calls her up again. Indestructible anymore. He can be killed just like the rest of us.
