4:22 PM

The book trailer for City of Lost Souls, the fifth book in Cassandra Clare's extremely popular Mortal Instruments series, was officially unveiled on EW's Shelf Life yesterday!

I've been a fan of the Mortal Instruments series from the very beginning and City of Lost Souls is easily one of my most anticipated books of the year! The action, the romance, the angst... I love everything about these novels. I cannot wait to see what kind of torture Cassandra Clare will inflict on her characters (and readers!) in City of Lost Souls

Release Date: May 8, 2012
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry

Summary (from Goodreads):
The demon Lilith has been destroyed and Jace has been freed from her captivity. But when the Shadowhunters arrive to rescue him, they find only blood and broken glass. Not only is the boy Clary loves missing–but so is the boy she hates, Sebastian, the son of her father Valentine: a son determined to succeed where their father failed, and bring the Shadowhunters to their knees.

No magic the Clave can summon can locate either boy, but Jace cannot stay away—not from Clary. When they meet again Clary discovers the horror Lilith’s dying magic has wrought—Jace is no longer the boy she loved. He and Sebastian are now bound to each other, and Jace has become what he most feared: a true servant of Valentine’s evil. The Clave is determined to destroy Sebastian, but there is no way to harm one boy without destroying the other. Will the Shadowhunters hesitate to kill one of their own?

Only a small band of Clary and Jace’s friends and family believe that Jace can still be saved — and that the fate of the Shadowhunters’ future may hinge on that salvation. They must defy the Clave and strike out on their own. Alec, Magnus, Simon and Isabelle must work together to save Jace: bargaining with the sinister Faerie Queen, contemplating deals with demons, and turning at last to the Iron Sisters, the reclusive and merciless weapons makers for the Shadowhunters, who tell them that no weapon on this earth can sever the bond between Sebastian and Jace. Their only chance of cutting Jace free is to challenge Heaven and Hell — a risk that could claim any, or all, of their lives.

And they must do it without Clary. For Clary has gone into the heart of darkness, to play a dangerous game utterly alone. The price of losing the game is not just her own life, but Jace’s soul. She’s willing to do anything for Jace, but can she even still trust him? Or is he truly lost? What price is too high to pay, even for love?

Darkness threatens to claim the Shadowhunters in the harrowing fifth book of the Mortal Instruments series.

  1. Holy shizz.... That is so bad-ass! *Hits repeat* ;)

  2. She always gets the best trailers for her books!! Probably because they have the budget for it. Can't wait to read this!

  3. Ooh the fire wings were so cool!! The actor playing Jace was very pretty lol. I waaant!!

  4. The story plot was as always amazing with it taking sharp twists and turns that you would never even imagine would be coming. I am certainly Biased when it comes to Cassandra Clare's writing as she is my favorite Author but with that said this is sure to keep you hanging on through gritted teeth and jumping up and down because you just can't stand to go another year without the 6th and final installment of this truly astonishingly wonderful series.
