CITY OF LOST SOULS-MORTAL INSTRUMENTS SERIES (ENGLISH)
“City of Lost Souls” is the fifth installment in the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, and follows the efforts of Clary and Simon as they attempt to sever the bond that connects Jace and Sebastian, and stop Sebastian from starting a war between Good and Evil on Earth. When the novel begins, Clary blames herself for having left Jace alone on the roof with Sebastian. Shadowhunters around the country are on the lookout for Jace and Sebastian, bound together through an evil spell cast by Lilith through a rune. Clary, Simon, and the others know that whatever harm befalls Jace or Sebastian also hurts the other. Sebastian must be killed, but the bond must be broken before Sebastian can be killed, else Jace will also die. Clary wants to avoid having Jace die at all costs, for Jace is her boyfriend and her one true love. One night, Jace and Sebastian arrive at the apartment of Luke, the fiancée of Clary’s mother, Jocelyn. Jace implores Clary to leave with him and Sebastian, but Luke and Jocelyn intervene. Luke is stabbed by Sebastian, who then makes his escape with Jace. She, Simon, Simon’s girlfriend Isabelle, and Isabelle’s brother, Alec, double their efforts to find a way to separate Jace and Sebastian. They decide to go and see the Seelie Queen, leader of the faeries, to see if she can help them. The Seelie Queen will help them for a price: the set of faerie rings used for telecommunication must be stolen from the New York Institute and returned to the Queen. Clary agrees to do this.
