City of Fallen Angels by: Cassandra Clare

Title: City of Fallen Angels
Series: The Mortal Instruments #4
Author: Cassandra Clare
Format: Hardcover
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing

” ‘He does make me happy,’ Clary said. ‘But he can’t control everything in the world, Mom. Other things happen—’ she fumbled for words; how could she explain that it wasn’t Jace making her unhappy, but what was happening to him, without revealing what that was?” “In a world where everything went away from him eventually, she was one of the few remaining constants.” Except for teasers, the fourth installment of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments romance fantasy has been strictly embargoed, leaving us clutching for word clues. A teen series that keeps readers on tenterhooks.

My Review:

I think I agree with most people that say this series should have been left alone. I liked the somewhat happy ending that was there prior to this book. In this book we find Jace going through all sorts of issues. Jocelyn and Luke are planning their wedding. All sorts of people are trying to get Simon on their side. And as with all books the big nasty is out to destroy all shadowhunters. There was also reference to the Shadowhunter Will from Clockwork Angel, which I felt was really stretching it a bit. It was a ok read but not one that really needed to be done.

    I certainly agree with your comment! If she’d just left things as they were in City of Glass instead of continuing to fleet on her success from the three first books, the series would’ve been very decent. It’s like the last season(s) of Scrubs. Admittedly, I regretted buying AND reading it.

    A very short, decent review that comes across the point very quickly. 🙂

      I wish she would’ve stuck with the three and then moved on to the Clockwork Series cause it was not necessary to build on The Mortal Instruments
