Publisher's Summary

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. As the Shadowhunters scramble to find out what's really going on, Jace breaks off all communication with her, refusing to tell her why. Desperate to help him, Clary plunges into solving the mystery, coming ever closer to a secret whose revelation may mend her relationship with Jace--or rip it apart forever. Meanwhile, when Camille Belcourt, the elegant bloodsucker who used to rule New York's vampire clans with an iron fist, returns to the city determined to re-establish her control, a vampire war is born. Only Simon--the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side--can decide the outcome; too bad he's caught up in his own complicated love life and wants nothing to do with Downworld politics! Love, blood, betrayal and revenge: the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.

    "Story good, narration needs work"
    What did you love best about City of Fallen Angels?

    The story is entertaining and the pace is fast enough to keep interest going.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Where to start? hate having two narrators for one thing. The female narrator is pronouncing words differently from the first narrator creating annoyance and confusion. She also doesn't really do voices or inflection well. The male has decided that all the male characters are strict New York accents...which makes sense for Simon, but not for the shadow hunters. They were raised differently and it should be reflected. Not a fan at all of either narrator. Sorry, hate to be mean but.....


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No because other than the length, I couldn't have listened to the narrators that long in one sitting.

    "The most horrible narration"
    What disappointed you about City of Fallen Angels?

    the narrators of this book were terrible. i had to turn the volume up super high to hear the guy. he kept going quiet then he would talk loud. so annoying. and the girls voice was ike nails down a chalkboard.nothing at all like the other 3 books. they should have kept the narrator the same from those books. she was great! i had to stop listening to this and buy the actual book.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ed Westwick and Molly C. Quinn ?

    anyone instead of these 2 would have been better. they were horrible. the woman from the first 3 books rocked.

    "Only 3.5 minutes in.... I can't go further"
    What would have made City of Fallen Angels better?

    If Molly C. Quinn DIDN'T narrate it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something WITHOUT Molly C Quinn.


    Did Ed Westwick and Molly C. Quinn do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Ed did yes!! I love how he can make me get lost in the characters. Like the Clockwork series. So passionat. Molly C. Quinn was horrible. She took me out of the fantasy. I had to try and figure out who was talking. All her characters sounded the same. She sounded bored, which in turn made ME bored. She sounded like everything was in question. And she narrated Lost Souls, which I wanted next? I don't think so! There has to be other versions without her somewhere. Maybe iTunes.


    What character would you cut from City of Fallen Angels?

    I didn't get that far


    Any additional comments?

    No more. Molly C. Quinn. Ever.

    "The narration is hard to get over"
    What three words best describe Ed Westwick and Molly C. Quinn ’s performance?

    I find myself yelling at Molly because she's pronouncing words wrong or different from previous narrators, it's very much like a young child reading a book and during the intimate scenes it's kinda creepy. Please consider a redo, I am not sure I'll be able to finish this one, and yikes I notice her name on other books.

    "Not Sure... :-/ let down by narrators"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrators.... Hands Down the worst thing about this.


    If you’ve listened to books by Cassandra Clare before, how does this one compare?

    I enjoyed the story to this book. Seeing Simon's storyline grow was nice as well as the other characters points of view. I wasn't sure how there was going to be a villain or conflict with this one now that Valentine is gone and I was pulled into the storyline for sure and really like the whole Lillith and Jonathan/Sebastian return, eye for an eye, balance of the force thing. But all that said the narration really detracted from the story. Reading it in book form I loved.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I've listened to all the Mortal Instruments audiobooks and this one was difficult for me. The first books narrator was annoying her voice was borderline valley girl for me it made listening hard to maintain a rhythm to the story. I enjoyed Natalie Moore on book two and three, she had different voices for each character and the flow of the story came out of her well. When I saw there were two narrators for this book I thought, "cool a guy for the guy voices and a girl for the girl voices" but it wasn't like that they changed off every chapter or so and that made listening to the story horrible. Their reading styles were so different and the guys British accent drew from the story. His New York accent for Jace was similar to Rocky and just odd. The female with her childish voice (which never really changed from person to person or storyline) just was hard to listen to and feel engaged into the story like in the past books. Like I said going from the one extreme voice to the other just made this an agonizing listen, very difficult to stay listening through it all.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the series.

    What three words best describe Ed Westwick and Molly C. Quinn ’s performance?

    Although Molly is very articulate, I doNOT feel her voice matches the characters for this book. Its a bit hard to listen to.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Molly didn't pronounce some of the words right. I liked the other lady that read the other books better but other than that it was a great story

    "Not good!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Listening to this book was so annoying. The readers are sooo bad they distract from a mediocre story. Can I at least trade my audiobook in for a written version?


    Has City of Fallen Angels turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I'm not sure. I would like to see if I can read a download written version and enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the first three books of the series/


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He: Fakey accents which vacillated between pseudo-Brit and B-movie gangsta. She: Believe it or not, she was worse. High, squeaky voice that could not project emotion or range without being shrill.


    Was City of Fallen Angels worth the listening time?

    NO!


    Any additional comments?

    Whoever hired them to read should find a new career.

    I read and enjoy almost all genres, but spend most of my money following interesting, evolving characters in series.

    "Wish I hadn't..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I can't recommend this audio version, but I may have liked it better if I had read the book.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Story was fine, the narration boring


    Do you think City of Fallen Angels needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    If the next audiobook is narrated by the same people, then NO! But I do like the series


    Any additional comments?

    Wish I hadn't wasted a credit and just read it on my Kindle.
