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, 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. Not to mention that he's dating two beautiful, dangerous girls—neither of whom knows about the other one.
When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why, Clary 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 spoiler free opinion:
Here's the thing I think I waited so long for this that I wanted it to be the most perfect book ever my estimations where extremely high indeed, so I think whatever I say may be a little unfair because of course it wasn't going to be able to live up to the idea I had in my head.
I love Cassie Clare her writing style, her way of setting a scene and her characters... her writing didnt faulter amazing as always. In this story we learn a lot more about Simon other then being Clary's friend and I liked getting to know him.
There are new characters Jordan who is maia's ex he was a good edition to mix it up a little.
There are also characters from Clockwork...YAY I like cross overs in books :)
I love magnes and Alec there wasnt nearly enough of them!!!!!!! Awesome couple, I think my favorite in a while..
Although Clary has grown as a person & Jace is still HOT I cant help but feel its kind of the same ole with them and the ending.... am I the only one who questioned that?
I did like the story alot but like I said it was hard to live up to what I had in my head...I hear TMI but REALLY WITH THE ENDING!!!!
4 out of 5 stars
