Description of this Book
What price is too high to pay, even for love? When Jace and Clary meet again, Clary is horrified to discover that the demon Lilith's magic has bound her beloved Jace together with her evil brother Sebastian, and that Jace has become a servant of evil. The Clave is out to destroy Sebastian, but there is no way to harm one boy without destroying the other. As Alec, Magnus, Simon, and Isabelle wheedle and bargain with Seelies, demons, and the merciless Iron Sisters to try to save Jace, Clary plays a dangerous game of her own. The price of losing is not just her own life, but Jace's soul. She's willing to do anything for Jace, but can she still trust him? Or is he truly lost?
Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings
||'A story world I love.' -- Stephenie Meyer 'Prepare to be hooked.' -- Entertainment Weekly 'The new queen of fantasy.' -- The Wall Street Journal 'The Mortal Instruments series features a rare marriage of extremely intricate, fast-paced plotting with ample digressions into the emotional lives of characters we've come to care about deeply ... With a movie in the works, this is an excellent time for new readers to jump on board one of the most enjoyable series in YA. Smart, fun, and epic, these books are addictive for all the right reasons.' -- Locus 'Cassie's writing makes my toes curl with envy. She is the rare writer who can write fast-paced dramatic fantasy with gorgeous language and memorable characters that you grow to love and worry about, as well as really funny bits that will make you honestly laugh ... It is rare too find someone who can do any one of those things well; to find someone who can do them all is just dangerous.' -- Holly Black, bestselling author of The Spiderwick Chronicles 'The action once again climaxes in a tense, lush battle sequence just waiting for digital cinematic treatment ... [A] goth-and-glitter pleasure.' -- Kirkus Reviews
Cassandra Clare was born to American parents in Teheran, Iran and spent much of her childhood travelling the world with her family, including one trek through the Himalayas as a toddler where she spent a month living in her father's backpack. She lived in France, England and Switzerland before she was ten years old. Since her family moved around so much she found familiarity in books and went everywhere with a book under her arm. She spent her high school years in Los Angeles where she used to write stories to amuse her classmates, including an epic novel called The Beautiful Cassandra based on the eponymous Jane Austen short story (and from which she later took her current pen name). After college, Cassie lived in Los Angeles and New York where she worked at various entertainment magazines and even some rather suspect tabloids where she reported on Brad and Angelina's world travels and Britney Spears' wardrobe malfunctions. She started working on her young adult novel, City of Bones, in 2004, inspired by the urban landscape of Manhattan, her favourite city. She turned to writing fantasy fiction full time in 2006 and hopes never to have to write about Paris Hilton again. Since her acclaimed debut in the Sydney Theatre Company's 2002 production of The Glass Menagerie, Eloise has worked with the STC, the MTC, Racing Pulse and numerous independent theatre companies Australia wide. An avid reader, her Bolinda audiobook titles range from Ted Prior's kids classics to Peter Carey's literary fiction. Screen credits include Oddball, Hunt Angels, and the ABC's The Cut, My Place and The Doctor Blake Mysteries. Grant Cartwright is an award-winning actor who has performed extensively in Australia with the Melbourne Theatre Company, Sydney Theatre Company, Malthouse Theatre, La Mama Theatre and many others. A 2005 graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts, Grant returned from New York where he performed with the Manhattan Repertory Theatre and the 45th Street Theater. He frequently lends his voice to many international film productions for English Language dubbing, and among his screen credits is the HBO mini-series The Pacific.
