As much as I like Clary and Jace (although, seriously, aren't Jace's unclear loyalties a little old at this point?), I was really glad to see Simon taking a larger role in this book - although with his multiple girlfriends! Simon has been developing into a very interesting character throughout the last few books and I felt like he really took center stage in this book - and hopefully will continue to do so in future volumes! Fun reading, can't wait to continue this series! ( )

I loved this one. One thing I particularly liked was seeing other character character view points and not just focusing on the Jace/Clary thing. I liked seeing more of Simon dealing with the vampire thing, while he is not my favourite character in the series, I still find it interesting. I also liked seeing the familiarity of things introduced in the first three books on how the Shadowhunters work and a new story line come through. While this was wrapped up, a great cliffhanger leading onto the next book. With great writing and some interesting character development, another fanatic instalment.

Completed the book I wanted to read for Clare a Thon challenge. Also crossing off a square for Book Bingo - Written by a Woman. ( )

Epigraph
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"
Dedication
For Josh, Sommes-nous les deaux livres d'un meme ouvrage?
First words
"Just coffee, please."
The waitress raised her penciled eyebrows. "You don't want anything to eat?" she asked. Her accent was thick, her attitude disappointed.

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.

Haiku summary
