If you’re anything like me, you’ve been dying since April 5th, the day City of Fallen Angels released and the day you most likely finished it as well. My brother and I actually competed and he won. But just barely.
So here we are and May is upon us. Soon, City of Lost Souls will be in our hands and we’ll be reading about dear ole Sebastian/Jonathan Morganstern and all that good stuff.
In order to appease your slight need for CoLS to release, I thought I’d share with you the book trailer for it. Which, in my opinion, is fantastic! So well done, and the special effects are awesome.
Word of warning, it will be quite spoilery if you’ve not read CoFA yet. So beware.
There you have it. Awesome, right?
Now we must wait two more weeks before we can devour this one.
If you ask me, I doubt I’ll be able to make it that long.
What’d you guys think of it? Has this been one of your most anticipated books of the year for you like it has been me? I plan to do nothing the day of release but sit and read this one. It will be a glorious day.
About the book:
The demon Lilith has been destroyed and Jace has been freed from her captivity. But when the Shadowhunters arrive to rescue him, they find only blood and broken glass. Not only is the boy Clary loves missing–but so is the boy she hates, Sebastian, the son of her father Valentine: a son determined to succeed where their father failed, and bring the Shadowhunters to their knees.
No magic the Clave can summon can locate either boy, but Jace cannot stay away—not from Clary. When they meet again Clary discovers the horror Lilith’s dying magic has wrought—Jace is no longer the boy she loved. He and Sebastian are now bound to each other, and Jace has become what he most feared: a true servant of Valentine’s evil. The Clave is determined to destroy Sebastian, but there is no way to harm one boy without destroying the other. Will the Shadowhunters hesitate to kill one of their own?
Only a small band of Clary and Jace’s friends and family believe that Jace can still be saved — and that the fate of the Shadowhunters’ future may hinge on that salvation. They must defy the Clave and strike out on their own. Alec, Magnus, Simon and Isabelle must work together to save Jace: bargaining with the sinister Faerie Queen, contemplating deals with demons, and turning at last to the Iron Sisters, the reclusive and merciless weapons makers for the Shadowhunters, who tell them that no weapon on this earth can sever the bond between Sebastian and Jace. Their only chance of cutting Jace free is to challenge Heaven and Hell — a risk that could claim any, or all, of their lives.
And they must do it without Clary. For Clary has gone into the heart of darkness, to play a dangerous game utterly alone. The price of losing the game is not just her own life, but Jace’s soul. She’s willing to do anything for Jace, but can she even still trust him? Or is he truly lost? What price is too high to pay, even for love?
Darkness threatens to claim the Shadowhunters in the harrowing fifth book of the Mortal Instruments series.
