Spoilers if you haven’t read the previous four books! Here are reviews to those.
It seems that Demon magic have connected Jace and Sebastian, Clary’s evil brother, together. Now the two have gone missing, and may be wreaking quite a bit of havoc upon the Shadowhunter world! Clary finds a way to meet up with the two in order to keep tabs on their wrong doings. Meanwhile Isabelle, Alec, Simon, and the rest of the gang are desperately searching for a way to disconnect the two without hurting Jace in the process.
Meh. I felt the series was really picking up from such a slow start, and this one didn’t live up to the previous two books. Granted, I thought the premise had promise, but it seemed to fall flat. There was very little action or excitement until the very end of the story, and by that time it felt like to little to late! I really hope that the newest installment picks up the story a bit. I think that given the ending to this book, the next one could be really good again. At least I’m hoping!
