Love, blood, betrayal and revenge — the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels. Simon Lewis is having some trouble adjusting to his new life as a vampire, especially now that he hardly sees his best friend Clary, who is caught up in training to be a Shadowhunter—and spending time with her new boyfriend Jace. Not to mention that Simon doesn’t quite know how to handle the pressure of not-quite-dating two girls at once. What’s a daylight-loving vampire to do? Simon decides he needs a break and heads out of the city—only to discover that sinister events are following him. Realizing that the war they thought they’d won might not yet be over, Simon has to call on his Shadowhunter friends to save the day — if they can put their own splintering relationships on hold long enough to rise to the challenge.
I actually didn't like the plot all that much. It was mostly focused on Jace and Clarys' tedious, never-gonna-happen relationship. I like a lot of action, and comparing it to the first three books it just wasn't as good. There was one major battle scene, and I wouldn't even consider it a battle. More like Simon saving everybodys butts. That was amusing actually.
It took me a couple of days to finish this book because no matter how hard I tried I just could not get into it. And I mean, I'm biased already because I absolutely LOVE Cassandra Clare, but this book actually diminished some of my love. The ending.....oh. my. God. I hope she's writing another book, because if that's how she's going to end it, then I'm going to cry. So overall, it was decent, but not up to my expectations of her.
