Review: City of Fallen Angels

City of Fallen Angels
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The fourth book in the Mortal Instruments series, City of Fallen Angels, focuses a lot on the various teenage relationships. Jace and Clary spend a lot of the book in secretive and individual obsessive examination of the minutiae of their relationship, with a lack of actual communication with each other. It’s rather annoying and repelling. The highlight of this book is Simon who succumbs to his vampire nature and takes a bite out of a human when he gets too hungry. We discover in this book, he’s two timing Maia and Isabelle. Then enters Maia’s ex and it’s all an interesting mix up. Meanwhile there must be an epic battle to align with the identical structure and plot in the previous three books. Since Valentine’s dead, there is a vacancy for a new demon in town and so enters Lilith who claims to be Sebastian’s (Jonathan’s) mother, which is interesting as Clary and her brother share the same parents. Lilith of course wants to resurrect the evil Sebastian and has to be stopped.
