Waiting on Wednesday #3

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, showcasing books that we are waiting to read.

I bet this book has been picked many times before and was posted a long time ago. But seeing as I am new and haven't posted many Waiting on Wednesday's before, I had to post this book before it is too late.

Title: City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments #5)
Author: Cassandra Clare
Publisher: Walker
Pages: 536
Release Date: 8th May 2012

*Warning* Summary contains spoilers to previous The Mortal Instruments books.
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?
This is one of my MOST HIGHLY ANTICIPATED BOOKS OF THE YEAR! The cliffhanger at the end of City of Fallen Angels has left me dying to get my hands on this novel. I have been following along Cassie's tumblr for all the snippets and latest information and I cannot believe that this book is coming out in just under a fortnight. These next two weeks are going to be agonising! Phew! I need to calm down but I am just too excited. You might of guessed that I love Cassandra Clare :D

Anyone else really excited for COLS?
What other books are you waiting on?
