APRIL 5, 2011
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 the 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 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 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 Jave.
Love. Blood. Betrayal. Revenge. The stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.
“Many familiar characters make an appearance, including some from Clockwork Angel . . . The cliff-hanger close will leave series fans clamoring for more.”
“The cliffhanger we’re left dangling from at the end will have fans clamoring for a calendar date for when we can get back into the action and find out how the heck our young heroes are going to get out of this one! If you’re a fan of The Mortal Instruments, you need to read City of Fallen Angels. And if you aren’t a fan, then you really need to find out what’s wrong with you, fix it, and start from book one.”
“The hype was so big for “City of Fallen Angels” that one had to wonder if it would disappoint. It did not. In fact, it exceeded its expectations. I found myself crying one moment and then laughing the next. That, my friends, was just a portion of my journey on the “City of Fallen Angels” emotional roller coaster.”
