Description

Trust is dangerous, and to love is to destroy. Plunge into the fourth installment in the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series and "prepare to be hooked" (Entertainment Weekly). The Mortal War is over, and sixteen-year-old Clary Fray is back home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She's training to become a Shadowhunter and to use her unique power. Her mother is getting married to the love of her life. Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last. And-most importantly of all-she can finally call Jace her boyfriend. But nothing comes without a price. Someone is murdering Shadowhunters, provoking tensions between Downworlders and Shadowhunters that could lead to a second, bloody war. Clary's best friend, Simon, can't help her-his mother just found out that he's a vampire, and now he's homeless. When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why, Clary is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: she herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves. Even Jace. The stakes are higher than ever in the #1 New York Times bestselling fourth installment of the Mortal Instruments series.

Professional reviews

"Demon-hunting New York City teenagers Clary, Jace, and Simon face down their personal demons in this installment of Clare's wildly popular series. Narrators Ed Westwick and Molly Quinn take turns recounting their activities. Westwick presents Simon's vampiric musings in a quietly sophisticated manner that perfectly portrays the cachŽ of belonging to an exclusive magical society. However, the tone makes Simon sound bored when he's fighting the source of all evil. Westwick's voice for Jace isn't ideal either. He sounds more like a gangbanger than a clever warrior. Quinn's narration lacks polish, as well. Her characters don't have unique voices, making dialogue confusing. She doesn't fully convey Clary's emotions. And her hesitant reading is in contrast to the strong female characters she portrays. Overall, ardent followers of the series may be disappointed. C.A. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
