{Synopsis} –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.

{My Thoughts} – Simon gets entangled with the head vampire of Brooklyn. She wants him to take her side so that she can once again become the ruler of the Vampires in that ares. He disagrees with her and decides to go his separate way causing un-needed drama between the Vampires. Eventually he decides he’s in over his head and the Clave starts helping him out. In the meantime Clary is worried about Jace breaking up with her and he is staying away from her – they have relationship issues to work out. That’s about the jist. This book dragged on for me. I didn’t like it much and do not see myself reading it again in the future. It definitely isn’t at the top of my I like list either.

Final Conclusion: 2 Star Rating.
