Excerpt: "What price is too high to pay, even for love? When Jace and Clary meet again, Clary is horrified to discover that the demon Lilith’s magic has bound her beloved Jace together with her evil brother Sebastian, and that Jace has become a servant of evil. The Clave is out to destroy Sebastian, but there is no way to harm one boy without destroying the other. As Alec, Magnus, Simon, and Isabelle wheedle and bargain with Seelies, demons, and the merciless Iron Sisters to try to save Jace, Clary plays a dangerous game of her own. The price of losing is not just her own life, but Jace’s soul. She’s willing to do anything for Jace, but can she still trust him? Or is he truly lost?
Love. Blood. Betrayal. Revenge. Darkness threatens to claim the Shadowhunters in the harrowing fifth book of the Mortal Instruments series."
My Rambles: I know they are kids/teens but dear gods they learn nothing. Kinda worried for Simon, both from dumb dating choices, to family situation, and the mark. I do love how brave Simon is. Omfg Alec though, one: I just don't get what his issue is. Like ok, so what, of course your immortal boyfriend is going to have had multiple lovers. You can not fault him for loving and being loved (Camille aside). And two: I'm so so disappointed in him for even entertaining the idea of stripping Magnus of his immortality. Good on Izzy though, connecting with some of her feels that she's struggled with for too long. Oh beware the incesty feels are back from Sebastian.
