City of lost souls is an amazing book. I really liked Clary's plans and I hate how Sebastion treats her so poorly. I don't know how Clary can stand next to her Jace and see him but he isn't himself. All in all this book was great.

As the title clearly states, I have unwittingly lost my soul in this fascinating fifth book of the Mortal Instruments Series. I enjoyed this book far more than the fourth one before it. I would recommend this book to those, as long as they can bear the burdens and sorrow. The plot moves along so magically, and unbelievably fast. Clary's journeys can only get more exciting, as proved by this addition. Some new characters make this more enjoyable to read than the fourth.Can she overcome her barriers and save Jace? Why not read to find out what this is all really about?  4.5/5 - @Siri of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

The author is good at keeping you enthralled in her story. It's pretty funny how much she uses the word 'incredulous' and its variations.

I thought this book was the best out of all. There were so much suspense, cliff hangers, and shockers that makes you want to keep reading. Overall the disappointments weren't too bad to make me not like not want to read this!

this book was good but at the same time felt like way to much intimate sex scenes. at first it made you really think Sebastian had changed but nope! wanting to sleep w/ your sister when you know shes your sister is just nasty!

I really enjoyed it! But be warned there is quite a bit of content that I would not suggest for children under 13yrs old.
Personal opinion, don't hate!

"Dammit, women, you read my mind," he [Jace] said. "Is there no filthy wordplay you can't foresee?"
"it's my soecial magic power. I can read your mind when you're thinking dirty thoughts."
"So, ninety-five percent of the time."
She [Clary] craned her head back to look up at him. "nintety-five percent? What's the other five percent?"
"Oh, you know, the usual— demons I might kill, runes I need to learn, people who've annoyed me recently, people who've annoyed me not so recently, ducks."
"Ducks?"
He waved her question away.

She turned and looked at him. "Ducks?" She said again.
A smile tugged the edge of his mouth. "I hate ducks. Don't know why. I just always have."

"remember when i told you i was 90 percent shure giving you a rune would kill you and then you slaped me in the face and told me it was for the other 10 percent"

"Does she still love you?"
"I don't think so," Magnus said dryly. "She wasn't very pleasant the last time I saw her. Of course, that could be because I've got an eighteen year-old boyfriend with a stamina rune and she doesn't."
Alec sputtered. "As the person being objectified, I ... object to that description of me."
