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?

I really disliked the narrator change from book to book. That made this one take a bit longer to get into. You get used to how the last narrator pronounced the names and inflections and the change made the characters feel different from book to book.
I thought the story in this book was well done. I enjoyed seeing the characters grow and change in their new roles and positions. The only downside that I see to this book was the narrator change, that really bothered me.
2 sittings, I listen to it when I drive home to visit family. It makes the time fly by.
The book is entertaining and good, but the chapters don't on the designated chapter segment in the app. That was a bit frustrating, but other than that, it was great!
the reader used a high annoying voice for clary tgat bothered me. other than that it was great.
