City of Lost Souls - Cassandra Clare 3.5/5 stars
I have to admit I don't have a very high expectation when it comes to books. As long as it engages me, it's a good book. And I don't even have a clue what engages me. The Hunger Games didn't engage me, oddly. But since this series has come to its fifth book, I wouldn't pick it up if I hadn't been engaged in this story, right? So I assume that if you have been following up Jace and Clary closely, you would want to pick this up.
Basically, Jace and Sebastian are now linked. You stab Jace, Sebastian bleeds, and vice versa. Jace and Sebastian have become best buddys too (Jace is kind of brainwashed), though Jace hasn't changed his love for Clary, and asks Clary to join them, to carry out whatever evil plan Sebastian has. Clary decides to go for it, and finds a way to sever Jace and Sebastian's bond.
I say the plot is not bad! It surprised me on a few occasions and I CAN'T BELIEVE what Clary did what she did at some point in the story. I actually gasped and cried "OH MY GOD OH MY GOD" when I read that. I wish I could tell you right now what she did but I don't want to spoil it for you.
Something else totally intrigued me. After I read the story I am DESPERATE to understand Sebestian more! I can't tell you how much I want to know more of him, though he's definitely a bastard. I want to know how he actually feels about Jace and Clary, even if the feelings are negative? Does he hate them? Like hate them and want to kill them? Jealous? Or what? 'Cause after reading this, I can't even tell!
I hope you guys enjoy it. And I can't wait to read The Clockwork Princess
And tell me what you think after you read it!
