Trust is dangerous, and to love is to destroy. Plunge into the fourth installment in the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series and “prepare to be hooked” (Entertainment Weekly)—now with a gorgeous new cover, a map, a new foreword, and exclusive bonus content! City of Fallen Angels is a Shadowhunters novel.

The Mortal War is over, and sixteen-year-old Clary Fray is back home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She’s training to become a Shadowhunter and to use her unique power. Her mother is getting married to the love of her life. Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last. And—most importantly of all—she can finally call Jace her boyfriend.

But nothing comes without a price.

Someone is murdering Shadowhunters, 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. When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why, Clary is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: she herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves. Even Jace.

The stakes are higher than ever in the #1 New York Times bestselling fourth installment of the Mortal Instruments series.

    Agree that the relationship between Jace and Clarie is definitely getting stale. Hated the narrators. Clarie sounded 12 and Simon was 40. It was awful. I couldn’t wait for it to be over so I wouldn’t have to listen to them. I really don’t like it that they change the narrators for each book.

    Not my favorite book in the series, but still a good read. The plot of Clary and Jace's tumultuous relationship is getting stale and would be great to just settle once and for all. I like that Simon's character as a vampire was elaborated on. The narration grated and was hard to understand at times.

    I love this book, but the volume of the voices are hard to understand. The male voice is hard to understand sometimes and the female voice gets too loud. Both did a good job, but not on the same book together.

    narrators ruin the story. The story gets a little stale in some parts with the relationship thing, but over all pretty good

  • Nick H.

    Great book to listen to.

    That 4th installment of The Mortal Instruments continues the story of Clary and Jace as well as takes us further into the life of Simon, newly a vampire that can walk in the day. I didn’t really mind this book and also didn’t feel it was all that great. The Jace/Clary will they, won’t they, tortured soul, I love you but can’t be with you, but wait kiss me I still love you, but hold on I will save you, no hold on, dead not dead, is getting old. I think by 4 books in I would prefer Jace and Clary be resolved and moving forward in some way instead of rehashing all the same old feelings over and over again. It would be nice to stir up a new fresh idea, give them a break, but alas, that definitely does not come to pass in this book and only leaves me rolling my eyes at the end, knowing we will continue down the same path in book 5. I would say that is a spoiler, but at this point, I really don’t think it is. Things I liked: I enjoy Magnus and Alec’s story and because I am reading TMI late in the game, I read The Red Scrolls of Magic just before this and was able to go on vacation with them and see where their story went. I enjoy Jace and Clary when they were settled and working together, no matter how brief these times seem to be, and Simon and his new power (that’s kind of cool and fun to play with in the story). Things I didn’t like: See above for Jace and Clary. I also didn’t like dead babies (ick and why?), lack of real development, again bringing back characters thought to be dead (it just doesn’t feel fresh, literally and figuratively) and really the feeling of just sort of standing in place on this one. Oh, and the ending

    I love these books, but both narrators were difficult to listen to. The man was hard to hear with his incredibly low and soft voice.

  • Jason K

    I love these books and want them to keep going with the movies, but I do not like it when the guy is reading it is just not as good as Molly she is my favorite!!!

  • Veronica Balaster

    The book is good, but this series has had 3 different narrators in 4 books. The male narrator was very good, but the female narrator sounded too young, and her different character voices jut sounded silly. It made the book hard to listen to. The narrator with the second and third book was the best narrator. Bring her back!

  • Kristen Garrison

    I love this book series! I wish they would continue with the movies.
