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).

As a fan of the first three books in Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series I was very excited about it's release and pre-ordered it on Amazon months ago. If you haven't read City of Bones, City of Ashes and City of Glass then I really recommend that you go and read them - the series has the creativity and magic of Harry Potter and the romance of Twilight. Clare has a real knack for really gripping her readers and my head was stuck in the first three books for a whole week. The old cliche of "I simply couldn't put them down" really does apply here. Her characters are varied and her plot is so action packed and creative that when another three books were going to be added to the original trilogy I jumped for joy.

But this book has split my feelings and I'm afraid that it didn't quite meet my expectations. There were good things and bad things about it and even now I'm still undecided as to whether I loved it or hated it. It is truly the Marmite of books.

First of all, I really appreciated the fact that Clare gave Simon a much bigger role in this book because I was a huge fan of him in the first 3 books. It was really interesting to see how he coped with his status as a Vampire and Downworlder and Clare has done an amazing job of showing how his character has developed and grown from book 1 to book 4. I'm even more of a fan of Simon now then I was before.

However, I really didn't like the way that the book's point of view shifted all the time. One minute I was just getting comfortable with Simon and then I had to switch to Isabelle and then to Clary and then to Jace and then to Luke and then to Magnus and the list goes on. I know that the POVs did shift in the previous books but not by that much.

The worst book in the series. Clare should have stopped at City of Glass and I just think that she couldn't think of anymore decent ideas for this book. Jace was my favourite character and his and Clary's relationship was adorable but in this book he was just annoying and so was their relationship. Just thought the first half of the book was a waste of time because there was no real action and the villain wasn't introduced until later. Saying this, Simon's story and trying to control being a vampire was good and the last part of the book was really tense and exciting so I am glad I carried on reading it. Hopefully City of Lost Souls will be better.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

*Warning - this review contains spoilers from the previous books in the series. I don't suggest reading this review unless you've read the other books. Of course, if you enjoy spoilers then go right ahead! This review is also kind of a rant. I apologise in advance.*

City of Fallen Angels picks up a short six weeks after City of Glass ended. The first chapter - which you may well have read online - is told from Simon's point of view. That's right, a whole chapter dedicated to one POV! Unheard of in this series, right? Until now at least.

During the first few chapters, the reader really gets a feel for how much the world - and the characters - has changed. First off, Simon is now dating both Isabelle and Maia. Yeah, I felt the same way. What the hell, Simon? I lost a bit of respect for him there, to be honest.

The main plot is that a series of Shadowhunters have been killed, and this in itself sounded very similar to the plot of City of Ashes. I did enjoy the storyline, but it wasn't until the last few chapters of the book that it picked up and I started loving it.

Also, I must point out something about Izzy and Alec. As you know, their brother was killed in City of Glass - a mere six weeks ago - and yet the only person who seems to be showing any emotion about this is Maryse. I can't remember one instance in which Izzy or Alec think about Max, let alone grieve him. This part almost killed me, because I know for a fact that if my brother or sister had died, I would NOT have dealt their death in six weeks. Probably not even in six months.

Jace is also having a few problems that I will not go into, but I'll just say that it was very frustrating to say the least.
