Oh, oh, oh. I can’t talk to you about this book until you read it and then you and I can sit down and go “WHY?”… I mean come on Cassie, don’t do this to us loyal fans who want some closure! Closure, need it, need it in droves, but also don’t want it to stop.
Yes Jace is, as always, hot (my teens exact wordage there), and you’re drawn into the world of Nephilim and Demons hoping that Clary will be able to hold her own against the forces of evil. And Cassie’s created a lightning fast read that you can’t put down because you know just around the corner she’s going to do something that will tip the story upside down for a while and you don’t want to miss it. But really Cassie… the ending. I want to know now, I don’t want to wait. Throw me a hint. Just a tiny one. Pretty please.
While I am trying not to spoil things for those who haven’t read the book yet, I am chomping at the bit to rant and rave with those who have.
Here’s the blurb:
The Mortal War is over, Clary Fray is back home in New York, ecited about all the possiblities before her. She’s training to beome a Shadowhunter and to use her unique power. Her mother is getting married to the love her life, Downworldsers and Shadowhutners are all at peace at last. And most important of all Clary can finally call Jace her boyfriend.
But nothing comes without a price.
Someone is murdering the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Cirecle, 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.
When Jace begins to pull away from Clary without explaining why, she is forced to delve iont the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: She herself haas 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.
