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.

    "Awful narrator"

    I think this is one of the best books in the series, but Molly Quinn makes listening to it almost unbearable.

    "Poor Narration"

    I don't know who chose the male narrator for this, but he was truly awful. The story is great and being the resolution of a long time series was greatly anticipated. To do this to the performance was a crime. I loved the story, hated how it was told.

    "Back and Better Than Ever"
    Any additional comments?

    Clary, Jace, and Simon are back and better than ever in City of Lost Souls. Sebastian does a great job at replacing Valentine and manipulating Jace...much to Clary's dismay. Clary is as headstrong and committed as she's ever been...much to Simon - and her mother's - dismay.

    Truly, I loved City of Lost Souls and felt as if I'd been transported back to the day when I first read City of Bones and immediately deemed it one of my favorite books of all time. It is that good.

    As always, I am enviously amazed at the way Cassandra Clare uses her talents to draw us into every one of the character's trials, tribulations, and emotions (love, hate, fear, and insecurities). She has a masterful way of making you feel like you have a stake in each of their challenges.

    In City of Lost Souls, love... blood... betrayal... revenge definitely collide and every lover of paranormal/fantasy will want to take part. If you haven't begun this series, you should. If you've read every other book in the series except this one, you should right that wrong immediately. You will not be disappointed.

    "Loved this book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of City of Lost Souls to be better than the print version?

    of all the narrators in this series, this one was probably my least favorite as she did not do as many accents adn different voices, but other than that, she did a fine job.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of City of Lost Souls?

    When Jase cut through the binding spell and came to Clary in her room, it was so passionate and sad all at once.


    What about Molly C. Quinn’s performance did you like?

    She was very good at capturing the essence of the book scenes


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When I thought maybe Will had died at Clary's hand when she drove the sword Glorious through his heart.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book, it was my favorite of all 5 so far....the journey with these characters has been amazing and I cant wait for the last book and the movie!

    "Love Reading The Series But Listening Not So Much"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    No!


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I like that there is connections to her other series, Infernal Device, but if you don't read them you still in the story it is just a little extra for fans. I like that she switch the narrative to different characters and not just get one characters view.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Molly C. Quinn’s performances?

    She would only change her voice for some characters and they were usually minor characters. For the majority of the characters they all sound the the same.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes

    "Boring boring boring"
    Would you try another book from Cassandra Clare and/or Molly C. Quinn?

    Cassandra Clare yes. Molly Quinn NO!


    How could the performance have been better?

    This narrator is so friggen boring. She put me to sleep. Most of the time I could not tell who was talking. How about changing up the voices of the characters!?! Put some emotion into your quiet lil voice.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Cassandra Clare's books but this narrator is terrible. Sorry...dont mean to sound rude but I wasted a credit!

    "PLEASE stop using this narrator"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, the listening time was well spent. The plot moved along well and characters were further developed.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The plot twists of characters constantly getting life-ending injuries and then coming back to life, over and over again, is tiring. I understand that magic is involved, but the plot stops seeming believable if you can never really write off a character.


    What didn’t you like about Molly C. Quinn’s performance?

    She has no depth of performance. All the characters sound the same and the supernatural characters all sound hokey and forced. And she mispronounces characters' names and technical terms in the Mortal Instruments world in different ways from book to book. It is painful to listen to.


    Was City of Lost Souls worth the listening time?

    Yes, if not for the performer.


    Any additional comments?

    Bring back the reader from the second and third books!!

    "Love this Series!"
    Would you listen to City of Lost Souls again? Why?

    Yes, so much ground is covered in this book. My mind still feels like I missed something.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I think the narrator for this book isn't as good as the person that did the first novel. She struggles with voice differentiation on the main characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending just made me flatly frustrated.....each novel the author lets you think the main characters get to be together....ah, but yet again NO! and the last book doesn't even come out until Sept. 2014! Disappointing.


    Any additional comments?

    Out of all of the books in the series. I would say this one by far has more almost erotica in it. I would caution parents of younger teens on this one. Read it first before you let your teen venture into this book.

    "Great book, terrible narration"
    Would you listen to City of Lost Souls again? Why?

    No, I would not listen to it again. I purposely purchased the hardback so that I could appreciate the story. Molly should stick to acting badly instead of reading badly.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Molly Quinn made all of the characters seem flat and lifeless. The only true change she ever made in her voice was if she was speaking for someone with a foreign accent.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Molly Quinn completely ruined this book and the last. I had no way to connect with this book emotionally because her narration is so poor.
