Publisher's Summary

Jace is now a servant of evil, bound for all eternity to Sebastian. Only a small band of Shadowhunters believe he can be saved. To do this they must defy the Clave. And they must act without Clary. 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? Or is he truly lost?

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "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 :)

    "Very enjoyable"

    I was a bit worried at first as Eloise Oxer's narration was extremely stiff during the opening lines, but she soon seemed to fall into a comfortable narration and I was able to focus on the story rather than the narration (Grant Cartwright was fine from the start).

    "Painful narrating"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Eloise Oxer is totally the wrong person do the narrating, she has not got the voice for the job. I takes a lot of will power to continue listening , for this reason alone I wouldnt recommend this audio version of the book.


    What other book might you compare City of Lost Souls: Mortal Instruments, Book 5 to, and why?

    All Mortal Instruments books are adventurous and exciting, you just lose yourself in the plot.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Grant Cartwright and Eloise Oxer ’s performances?

    Nooooo


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both

    "Seriously good"

    I do not know how Cassandra manages to maintain the suspense through 5 books but she does it and more. She continues to build her characters who evolve and grow in complexity, inhabiting a world that is alive and vibrant and a little weird. Onward to book 6!
