City of Fallen Angels Review...

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.

The stakes are higher than ever in the #1 New York Times bestselling fourth installment of the Mortal Instruments series.


So in this book Clary and Jase are finally together but slipping away from each other.  Simon is being chased by unknown assailants.  Luke and Jocelyn are planning their wedding.  But things don't stay good for very long.  Lilith finds a way to bring Clary, Jase and Simon to her in order to raise Clary's brother from death.  Each of them will play their own role in bringing Jonathan back.  Can they all make it through this ordeal unscathed?  Can enemies become friends?  Can mistakes be mended?

The first three books were fast moving and amazing.  You get to watch the characters learn and grow.  However, in this book things were extremely  slow and uneventful until the last hundred or so pages.  This book dealt with Simon drama and Maia's past issues.  I enjoyed learning more about the background characters.

So obviously I enjoy the characters and general story idea or I wouldn't have gotten this far into the series.  However, I felt like this was mostly filler and background information for the next book.  I don't what is to come in the next book but I look forward to finding out and hope that it is more adventurous than this book.
