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.

How many times can an author contradict themselves? Example: the room is so dark the character can only see vague outlines, but a moment later can see someone's eyes clearly as well as the surroundings without an increase in lighting.
Molly C. Quinn sounds like she should be reading "adult" fiction. She also mispronounces so many things that it is distracting.
I'm not a big fan of Molly C. Quinn's reading voice. On Bones, she was a good actress but compared to previous books, she makes it almost uncomfortable to listen.
The book has more action and less monologues than some of the others in the series which is nice.
Great book as always from Cassandra but the reader is just awful. She does nothing to distinguish her voice between characters making it really difficult to follow the story at times. Also she whispers and inflects at odd moments often killing the mood. To be honest, I wish I had just read the book instead.
I love reading and the joy audio books, and audible has brought to the experience.
I like the series.
It's a bit slow paced in that each volume only spans a few weeks.
But satisfies readers if you like this genre.
Single mother of 4 children, love to read /listen to books. Love mystery, supernatural, and romance.
I of course absolutely love all of the books from the Mortal Instruments series but City of Lost Souls is without doubt my favorite one. I love the fued between Clarissa and her brother Johnathan. There fight at there fathers magical house, epic! Had me sitting up with very eager ears the whole time. His sick love for her was a twist that had me reeling. There bonding moments were just completely adorable and sad. Love every single word that I listened to.
The story is as facinating as the other books. But the voice of the narrator is so boring and wining, that it was difficult to keep the concentration on the story. What a pity.
You could play a drinking game with the word incredulous, as many times as it shows up in these books expecially this one. Narration was a little better but not as good as books 1-3.
