City of Fallen Angels is the fourth novel in The New York Times Bestselling series, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. City of Fallen Angels is a book of new beginnings. Simon is learning the ropes of his new life as a vampire. Since he is a Daywalker, Shadowhunters and Downworlders alike want him on their side pulling him in different directions. Clary is training to be a Shadowhunter. Lastly, Jace and Clary can finally have a relationship. Of course, all is not well for long once members of the Circle are mysteriously murdered.
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy)
After enjoying the previous three books in this series, this one was a very disappointing read. The wit, humor, and action that is loved about this series was noticeably absent from City of Fallen Angels. It seemed the writing was forced, and left me wishing the series would have ended as a trilogy like it was originally planned. Should this keep you from reading the book? No, many others have enjoyed it. Plus, we can look forward to City of Lost Souls set to be released May 1, 1012 and City of Heavenly Fire set to be released September 1, 2013. Hopefully, City of Fallen Angels was just a small bump in the road on the way to enjoying more wonderful books by Cassandra Clare in the Mortal Instruments series.
