Blurb :
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.

After pre-ordered this book from the publisher, finally i got this right before Eid Mubarak days off and that surprised me yet made me so happy. I couldn't wait to read the next book of this amazing series but also a bit afraid because of many negative reviews of this book. I read it in 3 days (a while ago, but just wrote the review =p) and hey, I still loved and enjoyed this book as the previous three.

I understand why some people feel bad about this book, because the lovely Jace seems push aside and become very frustating here. I did too, believe me.
Poor Jace, with all uncertain things around him like his identity (Jace Lightwood-Wayland-Herondale-Mongersten?) and his weird and horrified dreams. Also even though Jace started to stayed away from Clary I felt his relationship with Clary became more intense here. Every time he met Clary, he mostly grabbed and made out with her. Although my dirty mind still enjoy it, i missed their cute relationship at previous 3 books /:

All Jace-Clary frustating parts were healed by some side characters.
I definitely loves Simon here, who struggled with Cain's mark which made him unbeatable, and how he 'dated' 2 girls at the same time, Isabelle and Maia. Kyle Jordan's appearance should clear Simon's two timing (who's Jordan? Just read City of Ashes/Glass to know who is he =p) and I hope Simon will end with Isabelle. This couple had more chemistry before.

Jace and Simon also developed their relation here. I love sarcasm comments between them, especially that 'mango' thing. Lol that made me laughed so hard xD

And what the heck with THAT ending??! I already had a prediction about Sebastian's mysterious death, without witnessing his body of course we also can assume he's still alive, but.... *wiping sweats*
Clare seriously loves to torture us and now i desperately can not wait for City of Lost Soul ;A; *starting to counting months*

Okay soooo.... I should give this book 4.5 star. Good, yet a bit frustating.
Next, so can't wait for Clockwork Prince!
