City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments #4) by Cassandra Clare

City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments, #4)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Clary is back in New York and life is good: she’s in training to be a shadowhunter and is finally able to call Jace her boyfriend. But nothing comes without a price. When Jace inexplicably begins to pull away from her, Clary is forced to acknowledge that she herself has set in motion a chain if events that could lead to the loss of everything she loves. Even Jace.

Love. Blood. Betrayal. Revenge.
The stakes are higher than ever…

City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments, #4)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
This is book 4 in the ‘Mortal Instruments’ series.
Jace and Clary were supposed to live happily ever after, but for some reason Jace is ignoring Clary.
Simon meanwhile is dating both Isabel and Maia, and neither knows about this.
Why is Jace avoiding Clary? Will Simon ever decide who he wants to date? And who is killing shadowhunters?

This was an okay read, but I got bored.

Clary didn’t seem to really be the main character in this book, we seemed to follow Simon more than anybody, and for some reason he was two timing Isabel and Maia! Jace was acting bizarrely without bothering to explain to anyone why, and Alec drove me nuts with his petty jealousy. Not loving these guys in this book, although I will say that Jace did come out with some quality lines.

The storyline was alright, but I just got bored. The story seemed to drag, and I got to the point where I was just annoyed. It also seemed really unfair of the author to put more problems between Clary and Jace after we’ve just suffered through a whole trilogy of angst.
The romance between Jace and Clary was pretty good when we actually managed to catch the pair together, but that didn’t happen very often.
The ending was then a massive cliffhanger. Because we all know how much CC loves those don’t we.
Overall; the worst in the series so far.
6 out of 10.
