[There is a summary below with spoilers, if you have not read books #1-3. Highlight with caution.]
“City of Fallen Angels takes place two months after the events of City of Glass. In it, a mysterious someone’s killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and displaying their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, leaving tensions running high in the city and disrupting Clary’s plan to lead as normal a life as she can — training to be a Shadowhunter, and pursuing her relationship with Jace. As Jace and Clary delve into the issue of the murdered Shadowhunters, they discover a mystery that has deeply personal consequences for them — consequences that may strengthen their relationship, or rip it apart forever. Meanwhile, internecine warfare among vampires is tearing the Downworld community apart, and only Simon — the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side — can decide the outcome; too bad he wants nothing to do with Downworld politics. Love, blood, betrayal and revenge: the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.” *
Like most others right now, I absolutely cannot wait for City of Fallen Angels. I discovered the Mortal Instruments series in October of last year. After I finished City of Bones, I immediately got City of Ashes, and then City of Glass. Once I finished those, I figured out when CoFA was coming and marked it in my calendar. Only 68 days left!
