It's 6 weeks after CITY OF GLASS and Clary's training to be a Shadowhunter, she and Jace are finally going out and her mother is getting married to Luke. But then Jace begins pulling away from her and actively avoiding her. Confused and hurt she turns to her best friend Simon, but he has problems of his own. Camille, the true leader of the New York vampires has returned and wants to use Simon's mark of Cain to help her gain control back from Raphael, he's double-dating Isabelle and Maia and random people are trying to kill him.

Soon Clary, Jace and Simon discover that Clary's actions in CITY OF GLASS have set in motion a horrific chain of events that threaten everything and everyone she loves.

Cassandra Clare's follow-up to the successful MORTAL INSTRUMENTS TRILOGY ties together unresolved plot strands from CITY OF GLASS with elements from THE CLOCKWORK ANGEL (the first her Victorian era prequel trilogy). It's an ambitious book with a large cast and a lot to pack in, but the story (for the most part) cracks on at a fast pace and I liked the way Clare interwove elements from the other books (which you need to read to get the most out of this) but there were some clunky moments of exposition, which deadened the pace.

My problem with the series has always been Jace, who I found too arrogant to care about. Here he's more vulnerable as he's forced to confront his feelings for Clary and his fear of losing her, although the device used to convey this is hackneyed and I never believed in his refusal to explain to her what's happening (or her refusal to press him on it, instead assuming the worst).

(WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS)

City Of Fallen Angels is the fourth book in The Mortal Instruments series. It is about a sixteen year old Shadowhunter called Clary Fray. Now back in New York, Simon is being followed by strange hooded people, who exploded in to salt when they try to attack him, due to the Mark of Cain he has on his forehead. Jace is having strange dreams about making out with Clary and then killing her, which scares him enough to avoid her, making Clary think he doesn't want her anymore. Clary is now training to be a shadowhunter and Luke and Jocelyn are busy preparing their wedding. Jocelyn and Clary go to the hospital to see a dead baby that has been experiment on like Sebastian had been, with demon blood. Clary tracks the baby's blanket to a church, which simon has also been told to go to or they will slit his girlfriends throat, at the church Clary finds lots of the strange hooded people and a demon who she defeats. Jace gets processed by Lillith and kidnaps Clary, taking her to the rooftop of a tall building. Simon has also been lead to this rooftop by Maureen a girl who has always been his biggest fan, who he accidental drank from, and who has now been turned into a vampire by the hooded people. Isabelle and Alec (shadowhunters), Maia and Jordan (werewolves) are inside the same high rise building, fighting their way through the torrents of hooded people after finding the many dead bodies of demon baby experiments. Clary and Simon are faced with Lillith up on the roof she has got Sebastian's body suspended in a coffin full of liquid, and try's forcing Simon to feed on him and then feed him his blood to bring him back to life, by getting possessed Jace to hurt Clary.

I'll try not to give away any big spoilers here, but given that this is the fourth book in the series it would be impossible to describe it without mentioning previous events!

I was a little surprised by how much I loved the original trilogy. I avoided it like the plague for a long time simply because there was a testimonial from Stephenie Meyer on the front cover- given that she wrote Twilight, my least favourite books in the entire world, I doubted that we would agree on what made a good YA series. But after seeing the film, my interest was piqued and I gave in- and thank god, because I fell in love with the Shadowhunters! Three books in, and a lot has happened to Clary, Jace and the rest. The question is, where do we go from there? Beginning a new story arc in a series is a tricky business- often, events take a turn for the ridiculous, pre-existing concepts or events are hastily retconned to make way for new ones and character development goes out of the window. Not so in City of Fallen Angels, the fourth book in The Mortal Instruments series.

At the beginning of the book, everything seems rosy. Clary and Jace have finally gotten together, Simon is exploring his inner Casanova and Jocelyn and Luke are planning their wedding. Needless to say, though, the harmony doesn't last long. Jace begins to avoid Clary, and Simon finds himself extremely in demand, but not from his girlfriends...

I was thrilled to see Simon take a more prominent role in this book. I've always thought him an interesting character who was a little wasted simply mooning after Clary, so it was good to see him dating other people. It doesn't take long before girls are the last thing on his mind, though...
