When Jace and Clary meet again, Clary is horrified to discover that the demon Lilith’s magic has bound her beloved Jace together with her evil brother Sebastian, and that Jace has become a servant of evil. The Clave is out to destroy Sebastian, but there is no way to harm one boy without destroying the other. As Alec, Magnus, Simon, and Isabelle wheedle and bargain with Seelies, demons, and the merciless Iron Sisters to try to save Jace, Clary plays a dangerous game of her own. The price of losing is not just her own life, but Jace’s soul. She’s willing to do anything for Jace, but can she still trust him? Or is he truly lost?

Change of Pace for this Increasingly Dark Series

I got the book about a week ago and just finished it yesterday. It's a twist on the plot from the previous four books and focuses more on the characters themselves and the ties between them rather than the events that happen around them. This new installment to the series also looked more at the relationships between the more minor characters including Alec and Magnus and the alliances of the different sects of the downworlders. City of Fallen Angels leaves the reader wondering how this thrilling series will finish and tugs at the readers emotions, incorperating everything from heartbreak to scenes so horrifying they are almost too difficult to read.


Thank goodness

I started this series two weeks ago under the impression there were only 4 books. I was so upset with the ending of book 4 and couldn't believe that was what I'm going to be left feeling. Thank you so much for writing a book 5! I seriously can't wait until May!!!!!

Love my heaters ,

Need for read

Great series I got my first book 4 Christmas and fell in love with the series!
For all of you who rated this book with a bad review you must be completely and utterly confused because Cassandra Clare is the best author I know and it is not like you can write a better saga so don't review without reading the book . My review was necessary, and if you think I am like all of you heaters please don't. My review was based on the other books by this fabulous author so be happy that this series was not a cliff-hanger.And can't wait to read this book and can definitely not wait till C.O.T.H.A. (a.k.a. City Of The Heavenly Angels) B.T.W. we all know you heaters read the books because you would not know about this book if you hadn't!:))
