The Mortal Instruments #4: City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare


The Mortal War is over, and sixteen-year-old Clary Fray is back home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She's training to become a Shadowhunter and to use her unique power. Her mother is getting married to the love of her life. Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last. And - most importantly of all - she can finally call Jace her boyfriend.
But nothing comes without a price.

Someone is murdering Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine's Circle, provoking tensions between Downworlders and Shadowhunters that could lead to a second bloody war. Clary's best friend, Simon, can't help her. His mother just found out that he's a vampire and now he's homeless. Everywhere he turns, someone wants him on their side - along with the power of the curse that's wrecking his life. And they're willing to do anything to get what they want. At the same time he's dating two beautiful, dangerous girls - neither of whom knows about the other one.

When Jace begins to pull away from Clary without explaining why, she is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: She herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves. Even Jace.

Love. Blood. Betrayal. Revenge. The stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.

My Thoughts:

Okay, so my patience is starting do dwindle a little with the turn of this book. Jace was really keeping me interested, but now instead of being Macho and hunky he's starting to just seem bi-polar. He's all hot and bothered one minute and then sulking in a corner the next. Hello MOODY! No thank you! Everyone else seems to be getting their feelings together though and pairing off nicely, except the "Epic" lovers.

As far as the story itself awesome as usual. With Lilith stepping onto the scene and a room full of dead babies I had hoped that she would have put up a little more of a fight or maybe bled into the next book, but it wasn't to be. I will read the next book though just so that I can finish the series, but if something doesn't change I won't be a very happy camper.

My Rating:

Happy Reading!
