Review: City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare


Title: City of Fallen Angels

Series: The Mortal Instruments #4

Author: 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, 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. 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.

Back with the Shadowhunters, the ‘this era’ Shadowhunters!

Again I couldn’t get enough when I started reading and galloped through the book at the rate of knots! These books are so easy to read!

So here we have Jocelyn and Luke getting married, secret sects, murders, angst and the Shadowhunters are right in the middle of it….again!

Jace is still his fabulous sarcastic self…..’I can see why you like it here, there’s a thin layer of nerd all over it.’ Of course more is up with him but I can’t help thinking that he has been through enough and now he will really get put through the wringer!

But the star of the show for me in this book was Isabelle. I’ve always been bleh about her but in this book she shone. Shone bright. Her character development was top notch!

So some highlights from me from this book were……

The Silent Brother, Zacariah, having just read The Infernal Devices I had a light bulb moment!

Learning about Praetor Lupus and more of the history, the backstory if you will to the Shadowhunters and Downworlders world was fab.

Really want to see what’s going to happen next after that ending!
