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

City of fallen angelsTitle: City of Fallen Angels

Author: Cassandra Clare

Summary: 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. -Goodreads



I was very excited to see the fourth installment of TMI at the library!  I haven’t been ordering them because I have lots of other books to read, but if the right book from the series happens to be available at the library, I go for it!

City of Fallen Angels seemed smaller than the other books, but it’s 424 pages, so I suppose it was just my imagination.  It just seemed really light.

Once again, Cassandra Clare never fails to make me laugh within the first few pages of her books:

Isabelle, however, was ignoring him.  She was staring past his shoulder.  “What is that?”

Simon followed her glance.  “That’s Count Blintzula.”

“Count Blintzula?”

Simon shrugged.  “It’s a Halloween decoration.  Count Blintzula is for kids.  It’s like Count Chocula, or the Count on Sesame Street.”  He grinned at her blank look.  “You know.  He teaches kids how to count.”

Isabelle was shaking her head.  “There’s a TV show where children are taught to count by a vampire?”


Okay… This is weird… Those were my only notes on this book… :O What the heck?!

Oookay, so apparently, those were the only notes I took on the whole book.  I don’t know what I was thinking.  Uh… Let me try to remember some stuff so I can add to this review, heheh…

The ending was just… Wow.  It was pretty dang bad!  And… hmm… What else?  I finished this book a few weeks ago, so I’m having some trouble remembering, haha…

Ooh!  The Clary/Jace moments were AWESOME!  And Isabelle and Maia had some beef with Simon.  Haha, that was actually pretty funny.

Anyway!  This book gets a 4/5!  I did go ahead and order City of Lost Souls, ’cause the rumor on the street is that City of Heavenly Fire comes out next year.

You know what I just realized?  I NEVER PUT UP A CLOCKWORK PRINCESS REVIEW!!!  OMG!!!  I actually have it, but it’s really long and it’s just a mess.  I’ve been procrastinating since, um, August?

Maybe I’ll do that, next.  I’m in a typing mood 😀

I’m getting really behind on my reviews–I still have five, including the CP one.  And I have to update Dramansy.  AND I have to tell y’all about a book signing I went to!  I should make a list so I don’t forget all this stuff I have to do.

Anyway, I can’t wait to read CoLS (is that what we’re all calling it?  Good).  Have a great day, y’all!
