The Mortal Instruments: City of Lost Souls- Shadowhunter Chapter Reveal!

I am so THRILLED to be a part of the Shadowhunter Chapter Reveal! Today I have the honor of revealing PART FOUR of CHAPTER ONE. Each stop on the banner above will feature a different part of chapter one, so you’ll have to visit each stop to complete the chapter.

This will be your only chance to get a sneak peek at City of Lost Souls before it’s release date. There is a strict embargo on this book… so that means no advance reader copies! City of Lost Souls will be hitting shelves on May 8th so be sure to pre-order it or add it to your calendar so you won’t forget! I know I will be!

In addition to giving you sneak peek at the first chapter, I also have a GIVEAWAY!! Thanks to the wonderful people at Simon & Schuster and Cassandra Clare…. you can win a copy of City of Lost Souls AND one VERY LIMITED EDITION Shadowhunter Family Ring!

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.

The prologue was released earlier this year on USAToday. You can read Part One at Cassandra Clare’s Tumblr, Part Two at Novel Novice, and Part Three at Eve’s Fan Garden.
