I really enjoyed this one, it didn't have quite the magic of the last 3, but it certainly exceeded my expectations, and of course, can't wait for the next! ( )

Each time I read a book in this series, it is my new favorite. And here I am, with a new favorite!

The Mortal War is over and life should be exciting and full of possibilities. But life is never that easy, is it? Despite the fact that Shadowhunters and Downworlders came together to battle Valentine, there are centuries of age-old hate and distrust to overcome in the aftermat. The Clave is changing, adapting and evolving. And there are those that will play on the distrust to advance their own causes.

I wondered how this book was going to continue the stoy line of the first three novels in an exciting way. The Mortal War was at the center of those books and it ended at the conclusion of the third book. So what would come next that would keep the story progressing? I shouldn't have worried! The mystery and intrigue didn't end with the War. The twists and turns have amped up in this book and so has the frustration level. Just when you think things are going to finally fall into place for Jace and Clary...!

I love the man-fecta of Jace, Jordan, and Simon. The dynamics going on there are fantastic and there is more of that fantastically snarky banter between them. I like the bromance weirdly brewing between Jace and Simon, too, a bromance that Jace would like to continue to deny. The characters are so wonderful in these books, even those you love to hate! ( )

After defeating Valentine and returning the Mortal Instruments to their rightful place (oh yeah, and discovering they're not actually related), you'd think Jace and Clary could catch a break. But Jace is avoiding Clary because he's having dreams of harming her, and someone's trying to kill Clary's best friend Simon - as if being a teenage vampire with the Mark of Cain wasn't already hard enough.

I tried reading this book once before and had a hard time getting into it, mainly because having a major plot point rest on the fact that nobody will talk to each other annoys the crap out of me. Can we please stop being angsty and have a simple conversation? Anyway... knowing that this time around helped me have more patience, and I discovered that things got much more interesting just after the place I had stopped reading (of course). Jace is as smart-mouthed as ever (my favorite quote was "He's my neophyte Downworlder to mock and boss around, not yours."), though at times the dialog is stilted or the description flowery. Quick, fun reading for fans of teen urban fantasy. ( )

If you ask me, this is definitely the best of Cassandra Clare's books so far. Excellent twists and deepenings of her semi-Biblical mythos were welcome factors and while Jace's self-esteem issues are as annoying as ever, this outing was very much enjoyable. Probably 4.5, but Goodreads doesn't do half-stars. Too bad. ( )

The book starts with the main character, Jace having bad dreams about killing Clary. They take him to the silent city where the silent brothers treat him. They test him and let him rest for a night. In his dream that night he accidentally gets convinced into getting possessed by his half demon brother. His half demon brother, Sebastion go to Sebastion's dad's magic apartment. There Sebastion and possessed Jace make a magic cup they use to turn people into demon soldiers. When they make someone drink from the cup they turn very power. When Sebastion has finally made an army of demon people Clary finally un-possesses Jace.Together they go to Sebastions new demon realm to kill him. Once they kill him all his demon soldiers instantly die. Then the very powerful demon teleports them back to their home realm.

I thought City of Fallen Angles was a pretty good book. It was packed with Action, Magic, and mystery. I like how they have the book talking from to different people point of view. The two people are Clary and Jace. I also like that they both have a special power. Clary's being create special Runes. Jace's being super angel power. I like how they refer to humans as mundanes and solve real world mysteries. ( )

There are sicknesses that walk in darkness; and there are exterminating angels, that fly wrapt up in the curtains of immateriality and an uncommunicating nature; whom we cannot see, but feel their force, and sink under their sword. -Jeremy Taylor, "A Funeral Sermon"

Book description
From the jacket: 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.
