Author: Cassandra Clare
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
Wow! City of Fallen Angels was a rush of excitement! The book centers mostly around the character of Simon, and I could not have been happier. I am a huge Simon fan and it was so wonderful to see more of him in this book. The new characters that came into the story, like Kyle, were great and I loved the banter between Jace and Simon. I laughed out loud at times. I have to say that Clary still annoys me BUT I loved Jace in this book. He was still cocky and arrogant but I found him to not be so hateable in this time around. Though seeing Jace so vulnerable and scared as odd for me and when I found out why I was in great shock. Alec and Magnus weren't in the book as much as I would have liked but the moments they were in it were great. They had issues in their relationship but I find their love to be very real and I love them ^_^
The ending of this book was amazing! I was screaming at the book, I am dying for the next book in the series. May 2012 cannot come quickly enough!
