    The New York Times best-selling Mortal Instruments continues - and so do the thrills and danger for Jace, Clary, and Simon. Can the lost be reclaimed? What price is too high to pay for love? Who can be trusted when sin and salvation collide? Darkness threatens to claim the Shadowhunters in the harrowing fifth book of the Mortal Instruments series.

    What did you like best about City of Lost Souls? What did you like least?

    I haven't really liked much of this book. The narrator is one of the worst ever. When we listened to book four we at least had the man who changed up his voice and had an interesting accent (except his voice for Simon, which was horrible) but this narrator had no depth or emotion. You should go back to the second book narrator. Also we want to scream every time she says Steelie!!! Doesn't the author listen to the Audiobook ever?


    Would you be willing to try another book from Cassandra Clare? Why or why not?

    Not sure-it's gotten pretty boring!

    Pirriwee Public's annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder. In this thought-provoking novel, number-one New York Times best-selling author Liane Moriarty deftly explores the reality of parenting and playground politics, ex-husbands and ex-wives, and fractured families.

    Regarded as yet another threat to the volatile King Henry VII's claim to the throne, Margaret Pole, cousin to Elizabeth of York (known as the White Princess) and daughter of George, Duke of Clarence, is married off to a steady and kind Lancaster supporter - Sir Richard Pole. For his loyalty, Sir Richard is entrusted with the governorship of Wales, but Margaret's contented daily life is changed forever with the arrival of Arthur, the young Prince of Wales, and his beautiful bride, Katherine of Aragon.

    Linda Lou says: "A DISAPPOINTING ENDING TO AN GOOD SERIES"

    Story

    I was very sad and frustrated at the end of this novel - is it really the last one? Don't get me wrong the story and the narration were wonderful but the Court of King Henry the VIII was a world of suspicion and mistrust and to kill children for the fact that they were born sons and daughters of Kings makes me ill. Phillippa Gregory outdid herself in conveying what it would be like to be born to a royal family who has fallen out of favour and showed remarkable insight into what it would be like to fall so far from grace yet never lose sight of where you started and she brought to life the nuances of fear and determination that Margaret Pole would have had to cling to to stay alive all those years. According to Phillipa's vision of Margaret she was a strong, determined, narcissistic, selfish and intelligent woman who if not for the turbulence of King Henry's whims and changes of law to allow those whims would have potentially been the matriarch of the next Royal family. Thanks Phillippa for bringing it to life yet again.
