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.
Denna boken är inte lika bra som föregående bok därav den bara får en 4,5 av 5 möjliga även om det lutar väldigt mycket åt 5 ändå.
Att den lutar mycket åt betyget 5 är givetvis på grund av alla roliga citat som man bjuds på dock saknar jag den spännande känslan som jag tidigare haft.
Kärleken mellan Jace och Clary har fortfarande lite "bumpy ride" och motgångar trots det visade sig att de verkligen inte var syskon som man tidigare har fått reda på.
I boken är det inte bara Jace och Clary som har problem med kärleken till varandra utan även den snälla och söta Simon har problem.
Simon är den som står för bokens triangeldrama vilket kändes lustigt då jag inte alls har fått bilden av att han skulle kunna vara tillsammans med två tjejer samtidigt.
Språket är fortfarande lätt att förstå trots det har blivit bättre vilket det brukar bli ju mer man skriver.
Cassandra Clare har fortfarande fått mig sugen på att läsa hennes böcker och jag har påbörjat femte delen men dragit ut på den just på grund av att sjätte boken kommer först i maj.
Citat från boken:
“You're just worried they'll hire a male instructor and he'll be hotter than you."
Jace's eyebrows went up. "Hotter than me?"
"It could happen," Clary said, "You know, theoretically."
"Theoretically the planet could suddenly crack in half, leaving me on one side and you on the other, forever and tragically parted, but I'm not worried about that either. Some things," Jace said, with his customary crooked smile, "are just too unlikely to dwell upon.”
“You know, some people think Shadowhunters are just myths. Like mummies and genies." Kyle grinned at Jace. "Can you grant wishes?"
"That depends," he said. "Do you wish to be punched in the face?”
“Aren’t they supposed to be hiring someone else to train me full-time anyway?”
“Yes,” he said, getting up and pulling her to her feet along with him,“ and I’m worried that if you get into the habit of making out with your instructors, you’ll wind up making out with him, too.”
“ Don’t be sexist. They could find me a female instructor.”
“In that case you have my permission to make out with her, as long as I can watch.”
“White for Shadowhunters is the color of funerals," Luke explained. “ But for mundanes, Jace, it’ s the color of weddings. Brides wear white to symbolize their purity.”
“I thought Jocelyn said her dress wasn’t white,” Simon said.
“Well,” said Jace, “I suppose that ship has sailed.”
Luke choked on his coffee.”
