Trust is dangerous, and to love is to destroy. Plunge into the fourth installment in the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series and “prepare to be hooked” (Entertainment Weekly).

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. 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. Not to mention that he's dating two beautiful, dangerous girls—neither of whom knows about the other one.

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.

Love. Blood. Betrayal. Revenge. The stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.

    City of Fallen Angels is written by Classandra Clare. This is the fourth book of The Mortal Instrument series. This series is really awesome and the author makes me feel like I'm a bystander in the story, like I'm in the story looking at the events happening. I also love the way Cassandra Clare write this story. In this story, Jace and Clary can finally be together.

        This book may contain the most changes in the whole series of the Mortal Instruments because people are changing, things are changing, relationships are also changing. Your mouth may be sore after reading this book because you can never shut your mouth due to the excitement and suprises the book gives you. The best part in this book is when kyle revieled his true identity, I had an idea at first, but I didn't know it would be that shocking. Also, Magnus may have turned into one of my favorite chacter now, because also he is a little stubborn, he is reall kind towards the other characters and are always willing to help. At last, I would always recommend this book to kids around 13~30, because it gives you a feeling like life is an adventure and it never ends until you let it.
