City of Lost Souls

Finished May 13
City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare

This is the fifth book in the Mortal Instruments series and picks up where book four left off. Jace has disappeared along with Sebastian, and the Clave is not able to locate them. Clary is worried and feels that things would have been different if only she had stayed with Jace. Jocelyn is in protective mother mode, keeping an eye on Clary, now that she has been questioned by the Silent Brothers and all her secrets have come out.
Simon is feeling lost, and hesitant about trying to contact his family to try and explain himself. The Lightwoods are worried about Jace and the younger generation is determined to find him. But not as determined as Clary, who would give anything to save Jace.
As usual Clary rushes into things, and here she finds strengths she did not realize she had. Finally she finds the fighting instinct in battle, but will it be enough to change the course of events.
Simon knows what he owes Jace, and is determined to do what he needs to do to find and help Clary. And he will pay a high price for that.
Lots going on, teenage angst, love affair issues, and big changes, leaving us once again waiting for the next installment.
