City Of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments Book 5) Review.

Hi ForeverBookers,

It's me again, with my review for City Of Lost Souls...I loved this book! It had everything I look for in a good book - great characters, an engaging plot, comedy moments and cute romantic elements from every couple. It had elements of loss and pain involved as well.

Spoilers Below...

The story is continued on from City Of Fallen Angels. Jace is still missing. This makes Clary desperate to find him as she knows he's with her evil brother. Clary, Isabelle and Alec go to see the Seelie Queen, who gives Clary two rings. One of these rings, she gives to Simon on her return. This means they can contact each other no matter where they are, as long as they're both wearing a ring. 

Clary makes the decision to go after Jace through a portal she creates for herself. Of course Simon tries to stop her but Clary is determined to do something to help save her lost love. Simon is also the only one who knows of her plan. She finds Jace and Sebastian together. They take her back to a magical house that can traverse time and space and end up wherever the master wants it to. However, she can't easily get out of this house without either Jace or Sebastian. 

While this is going on, back in New York, Izzy, Simon, Alec and Magnus try to work out how to save Jace while still killing off Sebastian. At the end of City Of Fallen Angels, Sebastian bonded his life to Jace's and vice versa so if Sebastian is killed, Jace will be too. They spend a long time going over different methods - it's only when Magnus mentions calling on an Angel for help that things start to change for the better. It's ultimately down to Simon to call upon the Angel as he can't be killed because of the power that Clary bestowed on him in City Of Glass. 

There are relationship dramas for every main character as well. I enjoyed this as it added a bit of normalcy to the story. 

I don't really want to write anymore of what happens because again, I feel that it's better if you read it for yourself but just know it's really good. I therefore give City Of Lost Souls 5 stars again. There were a couple of slower parts but I actually enjoyed them and thought the author did well to change up the pace of the story a little. It wasn't all thrown in your face straight away here. There are also stories that I haven't begun to cover here that pop up. 

I'm looking forward to finishing the series with City Of Heavenly Fire soon...

This Side Of Murder (Verity Kent #1) by Anna Lee Huber Review...

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished This Side Of Murder by Anna Lee Hubert and it was great! This isn't my normal type of read but I still enjoyed it. 

NetGalley allowed me access to This Side Of Murder so thanks to them for letting me read and review it.

This Side Of Murder tells the story of widower, Verity. She's going to a house party on an island near England. This story is really about Verity trying to figure out a code as she was a secret code breaker in the war. Verity lost her husband in the War, or so she thinks...
4 Stars
The book is set just after World War 1 so there are some customs that are different to now, smoking being seen as a good or relaxing thing, for example. 
Verity meets another attendee of the party, Max on the way there. They strike up a friendship. The other attendees are rather hostile to Verity. The other women treat her terribly and the other men just seem to ignore her. 
This is a mystery novel where we're trying to work out lots of things.…

The Fifth Letter by Nicola Moriarty Review.

Hi ForeverBookers, a belated Happy New Year to you all! I hope you all had a great Christmas as well. The Fifth Letter was my first read of 2017, and I enjoyed it. It wasn't all that I thought it would be but it still held my attention.

I got The Fifth Letter as a NetGalley arc so thank you to NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read it.


The Fifth Letter is published on January 24th 2017 but it's is very much an ADULT read! It's is about 4 girls, Joni, Deb, Trina and Eden who were friends at school. They go away to a house for a get together trip in their 30's. The main part of the story is set while the girls are in their 30's. One of them has the idea for them each to write a secret - something they've never told anyone else before but it's kept confidential. Then each one of the girls will read a random secret, and try to work out who it belongs to.

It's  set in Australia, which is a little different as most books I read are set in the USA/th…

This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished an awesome book! I got This Mortal Coil from NetGalley so thanks to them for letting me read it. It was soooo good!! 
5 Stars!!!
This Mortal Coil is a dystopian story that tells the story of Catarina who, along with friends has to find out who she is among the strife of a deadly plague that's killing off the worlds population through hydra clouds. 
The story is told from first person POV, which I loved! I thought the author did a great job at tackling different emotions that our main character, Catarina went through. 
There are too many good parts to quote. I'm not going to do that as this review would be so long if I did but I've summarised what happens below...SPOILERS!!!  
We see Catarina start as a shy girl with not much experience of the outside world become a warrior. Some may class this as a "special snowflake story", whereby Cat is the special one that everyone has been waiting for. She doesn't know this, tho…
