Exceedingly dull and disjointed!,
This review is from: The Mortal Instruments 4: City of Fallen Angels (Paperback)If it wasn't for the fact that this was the only thing I had to read on an 8 hour flight, I would never have finished it. I kept hoping for it to get better but alas, it didn't.
The characters were annoying and the plot felt like an afterthought to the rest of the series. The first 3 books flowed well but this was just terrible. Clary and Jace's relationship/problems just showed how annoying each of them were and Simon's storyline was weak. So many times I found myself sighing and thinking, seriously is this it?
I think it's time for Clare to work on another series because Clary and Jace have ran their course.
I read the Clockwork Angel book first, loved that and have also loved the first three of the Mortal Instruments. This one wasn't as strong as the others. Also like some readers, I notice the similarities between Clary and Jace and Tessa and Will, here's to hoping that the The Infernal Devices series continues as strong as it began, unlike the Mortal Instruments and also that Tessa and Will don't go down the same course as Clary and Jace.
