Genre: YA fantasy
Format: Hardcover, 536 pages
Expected publication: May 8th 2012 by Margaret K. McElderry

Book blurb: 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.

  34. The WORLD Cassandra Clare created. &, yeah, I know it sound like "I love everything' about it, but, no. When I say world I mean the vampires walking under the moonlight, the weres houling at in in their transmormations. The warloks with ther blue and read sparks, & the fairies, all terrifing & beautiful at the same time. The nephilim with their grace at combat, all they need is wings to fly into the mystery~
    (: By world I mean the sentation all those elements cause in me. Like good creepiness down my skin.

  35. Absolutely EVERYTHING! These are the first books that I ever put in my top spot favorites list. The characters, the plot, everything, it all just jumps off of the page and surrounds me and allows me to become a part of another world. A world that I absolutely adore. Cassandra Clare is just a stupendous talent and I feel lucky to have found her world.

  93. TMI was the first series to get me really into both paranormal romance and urban fantasy. I really enjoy how the characters in Clare's series are so compelling, and how fast paced the novels are. Whenever I read them I forget about the real world for a little while, and get easily drawn into Clare's fantasy one. :D
