    It all begins when Carey, Charles, and Paul are sent away to stay with their old aunt in a Bedfordshire village. It looks like an uneventful summer is ahead, until the day they find Miss Price sitting in the garden. She, it turns out, is studying to be a witch and takes the children on a series of adventures via a flying bed. They visit a London police station and a tropical island, and go back in time to the 17th century.

    City of Fallen Angels take up where City of Glass left off. With Valentine out of the way, Clary thought she and Jace could finally be together--but when someone starts murdering the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine's Circle and leaving their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to destroy the new peace between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, she realizes the past can never be left entirely behind.

    Since when is Simon English? It sounded like he was chewing his words. What a waste! I wonder if Cassandra Clare heard their voices??? What a waste of money.

    Story
    (221)

    When Sylvester, the Duke of Salford, first meets Phoebe Marlow, he finds her dull and insipid. She finds him insufferably arrogant. But when a series of unforeseen events leads them to be stranded together in a lonely country inn, they are both forced to reassess their hastily formed opinions, and begin a new-found liking and respect for each other.

    Marcheta says: "Georgette Heyer and Richard Armitage - love it!"
    "Don't buy abridged"
    Overall

    The best parts of this book was left out. I would buy this again if they would make it unabridged! The author is wonderful, the narrator is great and if you want just a snippet...then buy this. But if you want the whole wonderful pie. AVOID.
