City of Fallen Angels
Someone is killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and displaying their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, leaving tensions running high in the city and disrupting Clary’s plan to lead as normal a life as she can — training to be a Shadowhunter, and pursuing her relationship with Jace. As Jace and Clary delve into the issue of the murdered Shadowhunters, they discover a mystery that has deeply personal consequences for them — consequences that may strengthen their relationship, or rip it apart forever.
Meanwhile, internecine warfare among vampires is tearing the Downworld community apart, and only Simon — the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side — can decide the outcome; too bad he wants nothing to do with Downworld politics.
Love, blood, betrayal and revenge.
the stakes are higher than ever.
Good Book but should have stopped at the third book.
Cassandra Clare has done it again with her new book City of Fallen Angels. This book is a really good representation on how she writes and manages to capture the character's raw emotions. Full of drama, suspense and romance, I couldn't put it down and read it in 1 1/2 hours! Little plot links and interesting bits of dialouge make this my favourite book out of The Mortal Instuments Series. There was a very heartfelt scene when Clary and Jace are together and that almost made me cry because it was beautiful to read and I could just visualise it. A drama filled plot includes Simon and his multiple girlfriend troubles, Clary and her issues with Jace, someone from Maia's past arriving, Jace battles with his demons, literally and very powerful and deadly demon. This is well worth a read but you should read the rest of the series before this one or else you'll be pretty confused.
After fighting to be togther Clary and Jace and a couple. But something is wrong, Jace keeps on having nightmares, about hurting Clary. Will the silent brothers be able to help him or will it be too late. If Jace's mind has been taken over, will Clary know or will she be dragged in to the thick of things after trusting him. Will Sabastian return from the dead? Who would want to bring him back?
this book was great i loved it this series is my favorite fantasy and i rarely read fantasy cassandra clare is a great writer she makes me feel like i am a part of the story.
Well what can I say but OMG!!! What an epic adventure Cassie has sent us on this time, with her latest creation City of Fallen Angels.
What an immense roller coaster of emotions this book took me on. One minute i was crying, the next I was laughing my head off, and then at the end i was left in a state of complete shock and disbelief.
I have never before cried in a book due to a declaration of love, when no one was in peril, or there was no loss attached, but one scene between Clary and Jace had me absolutely in tears with its tenderness and emotion.
The City of Fallen Angels picks up about 8 weeks after the conclusion of the events in The CIty of Glass. Jocelyn and Luke are planning their wedding, Simon is dating both Izzy and Maia, and Alec and Magnus are travelling the world, and although the beginning all appears to be good between Clary and Jace, as it is with most of the characters other than the scars that the events from the mortal war have left in everyones minds, this peace doesn't last long, as soon shadowhunter bodies start turning up, and everything is thrown into chaos.
Jace and Clary, despite being madly in love, face obstacles in this book, but it isn't another one of those "lets tear them apart before bringing them closer together" cliches. It feels real, and the reasons behind the tension are legit, not just imagined.
Old foes, and new appear in this book, and there are several new characters, who are both likeable and important to the plot. In addition, I loved the way Cassie bought in Camille, the Vampire from Clockwork Angel, and i thoroughly enjoyed the links to and subtle mentions of characters from the Infernal Device series.
This book is much darker than Cassie's other books, but it works well with the advances in the story.
Once again, Cassie paints a beautiful picture of New York and the shadowhunter world, and has beautifully depicted and fleshed out all of her characters. In addition, the love scenes will not disappoint. The Dirty Sexy Alley Scene was fantastic, as was the scene in the institute between Clar and Jace, after Clary had been injured.
Finally I will finish by saying, what an ending!!! I finished reading it at about midnight, and went into a state of shock by the twist at the end. Lets just say that I used a few profane exclamations of shock at the end, OMG being the least of them. I was stunned, and was kept up half the night contemplating what had transpired. I broke into tears three times that night spontaneously over the ending and worrying about what will happen in City of Lost Souls. It was fantastic!!! I have never been impacted by the ending of a book in such a tremendous way. Cassie is a GODDESS!!!
Fans of TMI and ID will not be disappointed in this book, as Cassie has taken it to a whole new level of epic.
If you haven't read TMI and ID or listened to it yet, I highly recommend picking it up asap, because if you don't you are seriously missing out.
