Author: Cassandra Clare
Story: 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 who used to be in Valentine's Circle, 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. At the same time he's dating two beautiful, dangerous girls - neither of whom knows about the other one. When Jace begins to pull away from Clary without explaining why, she 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.

Comment: I enjoyed this series so far, so I was ready for "City of Fallen Angels". Reading this proofs that the series is pretty consistent. The world-building has always been something that stood out in "The Mortal Instruments" and the fourth book is no exception. It's really great to read about it and feel like you're actually there. What bothered me is that there was lot of teen relationship angst, especially with Clary and Jace. Jace is actually starting to annoy me a bit. I don't know what it is. So "City of Fallen Angels" is another good read in the series.
Rating: 4/ 5
