By: Cassandra Clare
Add to your Goodreads Shelf

Sebastian is gone and Jase is missing, but nothing can keep Jase and Clary apart for long. Only, when they meet again Clary finds Jase fundamentally altered. Can anything separate a soul so closely bound to evil? Is the real Jase even still in there and to what lengths will Clary go to find out? 

City of Lost Souls is brimming with the romance, peril, heartbreak and hope that make every Mortal Instruments book an engaging young adult read.

Parents and readers should be aware that it contains:
  • Kissing
  • Teen girls and boys staying the night in the same bed
  • Many intense make out scenes that nearly escalate to sex (detailed touching, clothing removal, scratching)
  • Stated sex between teens
  • Full nudity (before and after sex)
  • Homosexuality (kissing, physical sensuality, implied sex)
  • Blood drinking
  • Fighting with fists and weapons
  • Killing
  • Injuries (blood but no guts or gore)
  • law breaking, stealing
  • Drinking and drug use
  • Profanity (including the F word and God used as an expletive)
  • Referenced infidelity of a parent
  • Consorting with demons and angels
Of the first five books, this one definitely contains the most sexual as well as drug & alcohol related material.
