When the Silent Brothers are murdered and the second of the Mortal Instruments, the Sword of Souls, is stolen, the terrifying Inquisitor is dispatched from Idris to investigate. She clearly harbors a personal grudge against Jace, and she drives a wedge between him and his adoptive family. When Clary's romance with her best friend, Simon, starts to heat up, Jace feels abandoned. But has he, as the Inquisitor accuses, joined up with his father?
Then Simon is turned into a vampire and kidnapped by Valentine, who intends to sacrifice him as part of a bloody ritual that will make the Mortal Instruments his own forever. Jace knows he needs to save Simon's life, for Clary's sake. But what if he's too late? What if Valentine has already made the Mortal Instruments his own?

The plot itself is what kept me on edge.
This one is an emotional roller-coaster. Its hard to tell where they are going to go next. But the is a good one.
Consistent, kind of bland, and unappealling
No, I needed to take a break from the narrator. The characters voices she used started to sound the same and made it hard to differentiate.
I like the narrator from the first book better!!!
I had to purposefully muffle my phone's speakers to be able to stand it.
Also, her Mexican accent sounds like a bad Dracula.
The story was good though. I just wish this book had been narrated by Mae Whitman (who narrated the new edition of the City of Bones audiobook).
It is a total listenable book. But listen to the first book, after that will your world never be the same. That is what I felt after starting the serie. Hope you will see the joy in the serie alsp.
The story is entertaining, cleverly written and well performed. Great friendships, battles, scary creatures and intrigue. There is building of great, long term friendship and relationships. A good vacation book.
