City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments #4) By Cassandra Clare book review
I just finished this book about one second ago before I picked up my laptop and started writing this review so everything is still fresh in my mind and my mind is still playing with my emotions. I guess it’s a bad idea if you are writing a review if you are almost in pools of tears thanks to that EPIC and oh so amazing cliff-hanger ending.
To be honest, reading a book by Cassandra Clare and reading it knowing you will finish it in a History class is just voodoo. I slammed the book against the table and almost groaned in agony because of that one cliff-hanger ending that just wrecked my poor soul and tore it into tiny little pieces. Worst part is that everyone warned me that this is what will happen to me and I did not listen to them at all.
I seriously can’t tell you what the book is about much but know that it takes place after the events of City of Glass. It is where everyone is dealing with the war where Clary brought Jace back to life. They thought they would be together forever but unfortunately Jace seems to be pushing Clary away. What was just bad dreams to Jace about Clary turn more and more sinister and if I reveal more I’ll just end up spoiling everything.
I loved this book more than City of Glass. I think City of Glass was probably the weakest book in the series but this one delivered so much more and promises an epic two books that will come after this one. I’m not a series reader, I like taking breaks between books but now my hands are itching to get City of Lost Souls.
The characters were better developed and we got more details about them and more backstory. I think the parts that truly make a book up is the backstory and when characters reveal inner-most thoughts. I guess that is where the romantic tension is in the air but I think that it truly makes up a novel and I was glad to see Cassandra Clare the author, add a new side to each character.
ACTUAL RATING: 4.5 STARS
