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.
I'm so happy to have finally gotten a chance to read this long awaited book.
I'm thrilled that Jace and Clary are together although I wonder what it will take for Jace to learn that Clary will love him no matter what and he needs to trust her with his secrets....That what causes all the chaos.
I have to say that I'm disappointed in Simon. He always seems to be in a lot of trouble and this book isn't any different. Most vampires could figure a way out of trouble, he digs himself deeper.
Poor Jace, has had enough drama circled around him to last three lifetimes. I want so much for all of his family drama to be over, his parents are dead and the only thing he really needs is Clary so lets let the drama be on someone else for a change.....I wish Sebastian was truly dead and they need to get his body and take it to an incinerator, to be sure he is truly dead and watch the thing burn.
Alex and Magnus....what a lovely pair, Alex needs to realize that love isn't always easy and peaceful but it is beautiful.
We do have a new Werewolf, but I'll let you figure out who....LOL!
