Publication Date: April 5, 2011
Pages: 424
Interest: Series (The Mortal Instruments Book 4)

Synopsis: City of Fallen Angels takes place two months after the events of City of Glass. In it, a mysterious someone’s 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 in City of Fallen Angels.

            Once again Cassandra whisks me to the wonderful world of the Shadowhunters where most of the supernatural creatures exist. It was creatively written and I had fun reading it the whole time. But in the first half I thought I’m missing the action scenes that I used to love in this series, but my expectations wasn’t gone to waste and it was granted in the climax part. City of Fallen Angels is filled with mystery, thrill and action that have always been in the Mortal Instruments books. And I was so surprised to find out more romance in this book.

            When I finished the City of Glass, I thought that’s the happy ending for Clary and Jace but I was wrong, until I’ve read City of Fallen Angels and find out there’s more. In this book, not only Jace and Clary has been given the shot for their romance but also I get to know Simons and Isabelle’s side of love too.

            A new awesome character was introduced, Jordan Kyle, whom I’ll keep and eye for the upcoming sequels because he’s cool and gorgeous. And I’m happy that Simon is playing a very valuable role in the plot this time and I get to see a lot of his cool sides, but it doesn’t mean that I’m turning to Simon’s team. I’ll always be team Jace. And finally Simon gets to be in the cover. I love all the Mortal Instruments book covers. It’s eerily fantastic and its worth to keep in my shelf.

            The climax part is superb and it’s nothing that I expected from the earlier parts and it’s a signature that Cassandra has, to surprise her readers. It was filled with thrilling actions that gives me Goosebumps. Plus, the ending was nerve wracking that it made me to stare into space thinking what could happen in the next book. So right now, its one of the books I’ll be waiting.
