Description: (by goodreads.com) 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 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 one.
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.
My Review: Um it was okay. Sorry that’s it sound terrible I realize but out of the TMI series I think this might be my least favorite, which is weird considering this is all about Simon and my Werewolf Girl. BUT OMG THOUGH I HATED HOW SIMON WAS ACTING!!! Stop it. STOOOOOOP! It made me like him a little less because of it. I don’t know this book just felt like the weak link in the chain, but it was necessary. There were still so many questions unanswered, and this book filled in a lot of gaps and holes, but I don’t know something about it just felt a little less magical than the rest of the series. Probably because of the way it ended. All this being said I did like it, definitely not my favorite but it’s not like the Titanic or what Caitlin Kittredge did to her series the Iron Codex. I guess I just expected more from everyone especially Simon ( probably because he’s my adorable baby, and I want him to be okay, but he was being an absolute dick there for a while) at least he felt bad about what he did and made amends with his girls. I’m sure more good things are to come for the resolution of the series.
also I’m so sorry this was supposed to be posted waaaaaay back as well as almost all the other reviews you will be getting bombed with.
