Book 24 - City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare

This is the fifth and next-to-last installment in the Mortal Instruments series, and it plays that role well. It moves the action along quite a bit to set up the final confrontation in the next book. Stuff is getting real with Jace and Clary, as well as several other couples. Though I could have used a refresher about previous action (since I let too much time pass since reading the previous book), I appreciate that the author didn’t feel the need to include a lot of exposition and just let the story flow. An overarching theme of this book is betrayal/trust on several levels. I won’t let so much time pass before reading the next installment! Read 20 April to 5 May.
