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. 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.
My first review of City of Fallen Angels
I enjoyed rereading this book so much! I mean, we get more characters, we get to spend more time with these beloved characters, and more bad things are happening to them! Really, what more could we ask for in a book in a continuing series?
So we get to bask in the "we beat the bad guys" glow from City of Glass, for, oh, I don't know, like less of a chapter. Jace has been having nightmares, Simon is dealing with being not only a day-walking vampire, but one with the Mark of Cain on his forehead. Yeah.
So things quickly disintegrate, the happy turning into something that they have to deal with, but that conflict is just why we read books. If a book didn't have conflict, and by book, I mean fiction novels, then it wouldn't be interesting.
So yeah, that ending was just really something! I mean, the girl that Simon made is working for a bad guy, and then Alec releases what's-her-name, and then Lilith, mother of Sebastian, kinda of, uses Jace and Simon to bring back Sebastian. Which we don't like at all. And then Jace is gone! I just want to reread more! And tell them not to leave Jace alone!
I just loved rereading this book, it's just so good, and I can't wait to reread more!
