For Clary is playing a dangerous game utterly alone. The price of losing is not just her own life but Jace's soul. Clary is willing to do anything for Jace, but can she still trust him?

Critic Reviews

"The Mortal Instruments series features a rare marriage of extremely intricate, fast-paced plotting with ample digressions into the emotional lives of characters we’ve come to care about deeply ... With a movie in the works, this is an excellent time for new readers to jump on board one of the most enjoyable series in YA. Smart, fun, and epic, these books are addictive for all the right reasons." ( Locus)
"The new queen of fantasy." ( The Wall Street Journal)

Enjoyable romance with violence

This continues the story of Jace, Clary, Simon and Sebastian. Can't wait for what should be the series final.

Amazing story but revolting narration

Any additional comments?

The story is so amazing but it has been horrendously ruined by disgusting narration. They overact everything. The woman has a boring voice to listen to but additionally you can hear the static noise in the background. Also the man... seriously? it is revolting to listen to someone swallow their saliva... I almost couldn't finish listening to the story and I grit my teeth while trying to hold back the bile.

Eloise Oxer has ruined this for me.

What did you like best about City of Lost Souls: Mortal Instruments, Book 5? What did you like least?

Unfortunately I couldn't get more than twenty minutes in. Nothing to do with the writing, I wouldn't have got this far into the series if I didn't enjoy it, but the narrator is so painful to listen to, I'm going to have to wait until a better reading is found.

What was one of the most memorable moments of City of Lost Souls: Mortal Instruments, Book 5?

See above.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Grant was fine, though I preferred the gentleman from the previous book. Eloise on the other hand... Slow speaking, painfully slow. Dreary, stressing words seems more important than the story. The voice was so monotonous, I couldn't follow the story. She seems to breath words to attempt to make it more mysterious where it is just plain irritating. The last word in every sentence is breathed long, frankly weird.

Was City of Lost Souls: Mortal Instruments, Book 5 worth the listening time?

I may keep trying as I want to hear the book, but I certainly will avoid the narrator in future books.

Any additional comments?

Other ratings are based on previous books, and expectations for this book.

Good but tedious in parts

The whole series is amazing and the story has moved on however some of the clary and jace scenes are very tedious and quite boring in parts

Am looking forward to the next part :)

Another great story

Love the Casandra Clare books. The only thing about this book is the narration. I found the narration by Eloise Oxer incredibly painful to listen to.. otherwise a good book..
