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!
