City of Lost Souls (Mortal Instruments)

City of Lost Souls - Cassandra Clare In my review of Book 4 I mentioned that it seemed like an epilogue and like the author/publisher decided to continue with the series because the first three were so successful, but that the rest hadn't been planned out that well. In this book that becomes clear. A whole new plot has to be set up so that we are sucked into the rest of the series. It makes for a slower and less entertaining read, but I am excited about the rest of the series. I have, however, decided to take a bit of break so that I can read the next one closer to the release of Book 7.
