City of Fallen Angels

Book: City of Fallen Angels
Series: Mortal Instruments #4
Author: Cassandra Clare

Review: The Mortal War is over. Clary and Jace are officially a couple and Jocelyn and Luke are planning their wedding.  Things are going great until someone starts killing members of Valentine's inner circle and Jace starts pulling away from Clary. Can Clary figure out what is going on?

I read the first 3 MI books back to back and quickly grew tired of Clary. I am so happy I waited to read these (and that I read the Infernal Devices series first) because I was re-energized reading this. Although some of the subject matter was pretty morbid, I really enjoyed this, especially Simon's sections. I enjoyed his discomfort juggling two women at the same time, how he handled his family issues and his interactions with Jace. A few new characters were introduced that show great potential and of course, Magnus was fabulous as usual. The only parts I dreaded were Alec. I don't remember Alec being quite so weak and unlikable in the previous book, but for the life of me I have no idea why Magnus is involved with me. 

Overall, fun book and a great addition to the series. 

Grade: 4/5
