City of Lost Souls

Hola, another Mortal Instruments, yay! The motley cast of Shadowhunters, vampires, werewolves, Angels, and faeries are back for the rather unexpected fifth book of the trilogy. (Okay, maybe not that unexpected, there was a fourth.) Anyway, once again, Sebastian and Jace are bound. but this time it is not just by a father. They are connected by the demon Lilith, and Sebastian is unfortunately the dominant one in the relationship. However, Clary has other plans, and is, as always, not afraid to throw herself into any trouble that Jace already has. Jace is missing, Simon is struggling with his romantic relationships, and Jocelyn is doing a terrible job controlling her daughter. The character layout is almost identical to the previous novel. This book was very good, if a bit more suggestive than the others. The writing is good and the wit as sharp as ever, although I was more than a bit disappointed Jace was still evil. Oh, well. Can't wait for the next book! (And there is a movie coming out, right?) Three and a half stars.
