"The Mortal War is over, and Clary Fray is back home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She is 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- 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 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. 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 solutions 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."
My rating: 5/5
My official rating for this book is 5/5. I loved the plot and the follow up on the trilogy which apparently is set on wikipedia to be 6 books long (i thought a trilogy was three :-P). The way that Cassandra Clare lets you follow almost everyone in book and has more than one main character appeals to me. I really enjoy seeing things from Simon's point of view in this book imperticularly. I'm happy it's not like other books I've read as it is truely one of a kind. I can't wait to read City of Lost Souls which is set to come out May 8th, 2012. THANK YOU CASSANDRA CLARE FOR YOUR CLIFF HANGERS, AND MAKING ME COME BACK FOR MORE.
