Things couldn't possibly be worse: Sebastian is alive and Jace is being controlled by him. It's not even as simple as "kill Sebastian and Jace gets set free". No. Of course not. They are bound together: hurt one boy, you hurt the other. Can Jace be saved? Should he be sacrificed for the good of the Clave and the good of the world? It's torturous to read Jace not being Jace, but you will have to read it to find out what happens!

The whole Mortal Instruments series is amazing good! I love Cassandra Clare's sense of humor in this book and all of the rest. This book was great, they got better as the series progressed. I was feeling all of what Clary, what Simon, what Jace felt all throughout the book. I practically had tears in my eyes in the beginning of the book when Jace was missing, and I was cheering at the end, but I can't say why. I can't wait until the last book, City of heavenly Fire, comes out, out May 27, 2014.
