    more from this reviewer

    TMI is back on track!

    First off, let us get this out of the way...

    City of Lost Souls is not as good as City of Bones, City of Ashes or City of Glass. Sorry.
    City of Lost Souls is better than City of Fallen Angels. You're welcome.


    The story picks up right where Fallen Angels left off. You remember? That horrific cliff hanger that the wonderful Ms. Clare made us all so angry with. Jace and Sebastian have vanished. Clary and the Scooby pals are distraught and the Clave has launched a search, though more for Sebastian than for Jace.

    The tale skips around from person to person quite often. You know what is happening with Clary, Simon, Izzy, Alec and Magnus, and even Maia and Jordan get good coverage. It became less and less the story of Clary & Jace the star-crossed lovers. It became everyone's story. Jace actually gets less play in this installment than any other.

    So, if you are a Jace fan (like me), you may be disappointed. I wasn't. Jace was obnoxious. I like him broody and egotistical. Not brain dead and carefree. Which is the effect Sebastian has on him. I was all right with the lack of Jace.

    On the other hand, if you are a Simon fan, you may get great satisfaction here. Simon was less whiny, in my opinion. Still just as hilarious as always. He is finding out where he belongs and with who (wink, wink), who cares for him, where his relationships lie and what his place in the Shadowhunter world is. Maybe he isn't the outsider he thought he was, only linked by his long friendship with Clary.

    I know there are many, many Magnus fans out there so he earns a mention, right? Magnus, as always, delivers. There seems to be no end to the sacrifices he is willing to make for this band of misfit demon killers. Especially where Alec is concerned. Or is there a limit? You'll have to read the book to find out what the heck I am talking about!

    There are so many love stories taking place simultaneously here, romance fans will be drooling over it. But, for me, that was the downfall. So much lovey lovey, not enough fight fight. I expected a big epic battle to save Jace's soul. There was a battle. It wasn't very epic. There was a moment that reminded me of the most memorable Buffy/Angel moment. I apologize to those who won't get the reference. But we will have to wait for City of Heavenly Fire for this epic battle. Since it is earmarked for release in spring of 2014...it's going to be a long wait.

    All in all it's a good read for TMI fans. It actually renewed my love for the series and I think I will be revisiting each book before the release of the final installment.

    OMG CANT WAIT!!!!!!

    I absolutely adore this series and i truly thought that it was over after the city of glass but then cassandra clare came back with a whole new set of bad guys and plot twists and yet more reasons for clary and jace not to be together happily. This series is one of my top picks and this book will be in my bag the day it comes out!!!!!

    Best TMI Yet!!!

    In City of Lost Souls, there'll be hell to pay
    The Shadowhunters' world is in disarray.
    The reality is blurred between friends and foes,
    And in this game of hmmm....love? anything goes.

    For Jace is lost and his will is on loan
    And if Clary's not careful, all will be blown.
    Will their love be strong enough to withstand
    The pain and destruction from Sebastian's hand?

    And then there is Simon, with the Mark of Cain,
    Will he be Heaven or Hell's, and can he be slain?
    And Isabelle Lightwood who stole Simon's heart,
    Will losing Max and then Jace tear her apart?

    And what about Alec who loves Magnus Bane,
    Is immortality possible for him to obtain?
    Or will he grow old and thus wither away,
    Perhaps he should bargain with the Queen of the Fae.

    To burn down the world is Sebastian's goal,
    But even more, he wants his sister's soul.
    To make her love him is his greatest need
    Through blood and death, will he succeed?

    Through broken hearts and minds and dangers untold,
    For fighting heaven and hell, they will pay tenfold.
    At the end of day, they must all stand and fight,
    Or else they fall victim to Sebastian's dark might.

    This is the BEST book in the Mortal Instruments series!!! I read it in one day, and then I went back and read and re-read my favorite parts--there were quite a few! I'm actually tempted to stop writing right now and go re-read them again!!!

    You know how there are certain moments that change your life? Well, reading City of Lost Souls was one of those (okay...so much more than a moment, but still) moments! I was swept away into Cassie's world--if only I could live there permanently.

    Okay...so most people who are going to read this book already love Cassie Clare and TMI, so I'm just going to go with a few reasons why you should read this RIGHT AWAY! (We'll do a countdown)

    5. I love when the Fae interfere--I mean, they are just so cunningly evil! Anytime the Queen is around, you know you are in for something dark and twisty!

    4. We get to see into Magnus's world! His world is quirky and fun, but with an air of mystery and danger. It divides the line between good and evil, and it's nice to ride that line with the warlock. Magnus has been in so many of Cassie's books, but I really love seeing him get personal in this one!

    3. I love the world that Sebastian, Jace, and Clary get swept away in. I won't say much because it would be too spoilery, but there was so much grey there that I didn't know who to trust--and I didn't care! I just wanted more!

    2. Sebastian is the absolute best villain ever! I mean--bold statement coming--I think I like him better than Voldemort! (Please don't strike me with a lightning bolt...) He's charming and sexy and manipulative, but I just can't help but have a weird crush on him! There is nothing better than a hot villain!

    1. Jace--of course! Even though he's not the Jace we all remember, he is still to die for! He's just as sexy, just as scandalous--even more so because Sebastian's pulling the strings, and just as kick butt! I date you not to completely fall in love with him!

    So...if my wonderful poem didn't convince you and my wonderful countdown did not convince you, then I have to conclude that you are just crazy! May Jace's stele strike you down!

    I really loved how cassandra ended city of glass, and i thought it was over and i was sad but ok with it. Than she came out with another book and i didn't like how that one ended, i kinda feel shes dragging the series. I hope this next one is interesting.

    YES IT'S WORTH READING!!!

    I really love this series, I'm so excited to see that there's a 5th book on the way, it kills me that I have to wait until May to read it. I found the first book at my local library by random chance and I was hooked, from riding around to all the libraries in my area to get the next copy to waiting on lists for my chance to read it. I've bought em all now and I'd recommend it as a great read to anyone.

    For the love of all things beautiful, READ THIS BOOK!

    Literally 2 pages into City of Bones was when I got obsessed. My favorite series for sure!!! I'm so excited but so sad that we have to wait another 7 months. I love how she writes; it's like you really love the romance parts (this is coming from a girl to a girl), and then in between you are forced to read the adventure and mystery and thrilling parts. ITS SO ADDICTING!! I absolutely loved it and read the first four in about 5 days. I suggested it to my cousin and he liked it a lot too. This book is really for any girl or guy looking for an exciting read.

    Why is she writing more?

    I dont understand why she didnt end with City of Glass. I think that these extra books are boring. I think shes trying to drag it on and on but is going too far.

    I can't wait!

    I was introduced to this series after reading Clockwork Angel of hers and I couldn't wait for Clockwork Prince to be released (can't wait for that either!) So I read this series and after the third book I thought it was over but she came out with the fourth in the series and it was really good, the characters are different almost and still progressing and a few new ones were introduced and new antagonists were introduced so I can't wait to see what will happen with them. Also the last book ended on a cliff hanger so this book better come out soon! :) This series would be for people who are looking for an adventure, kind of action-y book with some romance and humor thrown in. (Read the first four first, though. :) )

    so excited!

    I absolutely love this series. I have read the books over and over again, and I'm the type who can't read a book more than once. However, I'm not all too thrilled about there being another book after this one. I just want a satisfying ending already, and to not have to wait forever to see what happens next. It's getting tiring
