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. Everywhere he turns, someone wants him on their side—along with the power of the curse that's wrecking his life. And they're willing to do anything to get what they want. Not to mention that he's dating two beautiful, dangerous girls—neither of whom knows about the other one. 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. Love. Blood. Betrayal. Revenge. The stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.

Meeeeh :/I am not a huge TMI fan anyway, but I somehow got sucked into the first three books. I read the first, didn't really like it. Re-read it and liked it more, so I read the second. I liked it ok, so when I found the whole series on sale, I went ahead and bought them. Now I kind of wish I hadn'...
Chyba najlepsza część jaką czytałam. Wojna się skończyła, wydawałoby się, że już będzie wszystko fajnie, idealnie. A tutaj znów kłopoty. I ile dodatkowych plusów: Coś się działo z Jacem - wątek numer 1, a przy tym w ciekawy sposób przedstawiony. Bardziej mnie ciekawiło, co się z nim działo i dla...
It was just okay for me. I gave it a 3/5 because although it wasn't my favorite and I kept wondering: "When will this be over?" (Even with the audio), I didn't "hate" it. I am in no huge hurry to go on right now, but if I happen to see the other two books at a great deal next time I'm able to book s...
Ok, when I started re-reading The Mortal Instruments (just after reading The Infernal Devices for the first time), I had in mind to do a series review, book by book, with very detailed posts. I guess I forgot or could not find the motivation to do it. Anyway, here are some thoughts about book four: ...
