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 reader used a high annoying voice for clary tgat bothered me. other than that it was great.
Great story as per usual of Cassandra Claire. But the performance was awful. The voices didn't make sense and neither did the pronunciations of certain words like stele. This made it difficult to follow the story, especially the dialogue.
No simply because it drives me insane that the narrator is mispronouncing words and makes no effort for effective accents present in the first book. BUY THE REGULAR BOOK FOR THIS ONE.
Different narrator. Just really hard to listen to.
It is a pretty good story but gets to bogged down with all the drama, which seems repetitive and pointless! The back story however is good and the world created is interesting
