Summary: Picking up right where City of Fallen Angels left off, City of Lost Souls finds our heroes desperately searching for Jace, who appears to have been kidnapped by the totally-not-dead Sebastian. Things get tricky when they discover Jace hasn’t been kidnapped, he’s gone off with Sebastian willingly and the two are apparently BFFs now. Unable to go to the Clave for help, the kids decide to rescue Jace on their own. But as always in the lives of our favorite Shadowhunters, things are not as they seem…
City of Lost Souls!!!! Here’s the breakdown:
Simon is the best.
Clary does what she wants and it’s pretty stupid.
Jace, for once, wants to be happy with Clary instead of being a withdrawn, emotionally self-flagellating weirdo, but unfortunately it’s because he’s kind of EVIL.
Isabelle learns that it’s okay to need people. <3<3<3
Alec is an idiot dummy stupid idiot.
Magnus has SEQUINED BATTLE ARMOR.
Maia and Jordan are basically happy, and therefore boring.
Sebastian tries to convince us that he’s really nice now.
All of the adult characters… are there adult characters in this book?
Everyone is a snarky sassy-pants.
