City of Fallen Angels - Cassandra Clare

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
Genre: YA Fantasy

Blurb (on back of book): The Mortal War is over, and 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 love of her life. Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last. And — most important of all — Clary can finally call Jace her boyfriend.
But nothing comes without a price.
Someone is murdering the 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 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.
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.
Love. Blood. Betrayal. Revenge. The stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.


This was yet another amazing book by Cassandra Clare. It was geared for much older readers than the first three, but it still has the same action and drama that the previous books in the series have had. It ended in a cliffhanger and makes you want to read the fifth book. It is a book that makes you want to read more and more until you have read for many hours and you look up and find that you have spent the day reading.

It was full of action and romance. It was also very violent at some points, and the ending was a bit creepy, but also interesting. I love how this book changes points of views, though I felt like there wasn't enough Clary shown. It was mainly focused on Simon, although there were parts told from Jace, Alec, and Magnus' point of views, along with other minor characters.

I would definitely recommend this book to high-schoolers, and mature middle-schoolers. Overall, this book deserves an A+!
