Darkness threatens to claim the Shadowhunters in CITY OF LOST SOULS, the harrowing fifth book of the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. May’s roundup of Cool & New Books also includes INSURGENT, Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second installment of the dystopian Divergent trilogy; BITTERBLUE, the long-awaited companion to Kristin Cashore’s GRACELING and FIRE; and NEVER FALL DOWN, Patricia McCormick’s novel (based on a true story) about a child of war who becomes a man of peace.
