Waiting on Wednesday: City of Fallen Angels

The lovely Jill (a fellow Alabamian!) over at Breaking the Spine created the Waiting on Wednesday meme for us bloggers to showcase books we're waiting on.

This week I chose the fourth installment in what I think is one of the greatest paranormal YA series out there. I'm sure you've all heard of The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. If you haven't, grab a paper on your way home and look for a new apartment so you can move out from under that rock. This week's WoW is none other than

City of Fallen Angels
By Cassandra Clare
Pub date: 4/5/11

Product description from goodreads.com

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.

This description alone should make you want to read this series. And you only have 6 weeks to read the other 3 books, so you better hurry!


  1. I have the first three books (the covers were shiny and I had a ooo shiny! moment.) But I haven't read them yet. I started reading the first one but found it hard to get sucked in so I put it down and have yet to pick it up.

  2. Patricia - I felt the same way, but I kept with it and I'm glad I did. The story is really well written and cool. I think you'd probably like it!

  3. A superb pick! It looks great. Happy Reading :)

  5. G - No way, the 1st chapter is online! Where!
    I love this series...and Jace (oh yes)...but actually I'm a Simon guy, don't know why (I think it's cause he's a vampire now)
