Book Review: City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments #4) by Cassandra Clare

Hi, everybody!

As you may have noticed I haven’t posted a Book Tag on Sunday. But I have an excuse. I got home around 8 o’clock in the evening from a sleepover so I was very tired. I started writing the Book Tag but then when I was writing my last sentence (no lie) my computer died without a warning! I was so pissed and tired that I really didn’t want to do it again. I’ll probably do it again this Sunday, though. But for today I have an extra Book Review for you!

Synopsis (Goodreads)

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, 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. When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why, Clary 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.

My review

As I said in my review of City of Glass I had no idea what had to happen in next book(s). Turns out: a lot.

When I read the synopsis I was scared. Jace was going to pull away from Clary? A couple of months ago I read a book where to protagonists kept misunderstanding each other and didn’t talk for 800 pages! I was afraid something like that would happen in this one, too. Fortunatly, that wasn’t the case. I didn’t get frustrated and the problem was quite fast “solved”.

In the beginning we read about Clary’s training. That was the moment I had the feeling Clary was going to be a real Shadowhunter. I’m really starting to love Clary, actually!
I felt so sorry for Jace. Cassandra Clare keeps torturing him and my friends say it’s going to be worst in the next couple of books… I don’t want to see my baby get hurt!
Simon has his own dilemmas. Beside all the attacks on him and two vampires “fighting” over him he’s also dating two girls at the same time… Maia and Isabelle don’t know this from each other, though. In some way I found this really funny. I’m a bad person. XD
Alec and Magnus really are my OTP. They’re so damn cute and I really love them together. But Alec finds it very difficult to date someone who’s hundreds of years old and has a such a big history.
We met the new and handsome Kyle. He wants to play in Simon’s band. I really liked him. He’s very kind and helpfull. When Simon’s thrown out of his house by his mother he can live in Kyle’s appartement and they even become friends.

As always there happens a lot in Cassandra’s books. The end was so unexpected and I totally loved it! Definitly my favourite plot of the whole series so far. A lot of people say that the series could’ve stop after the first three books. And maybe they’re right. It indeed could stop there. Everything was nicely wrapped up but I’m happy it didn’t end after City of Glass.

Did you read this book? What did you think of it? Comment below or send a link to your review if you have one. I’d love to read it! I’ll see you tomorrow with a new This or That? Challenge!
