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.

    "The book takes a shocking turn everytime"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It is filled with magic, surpises and the story continues to evolve.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Clarissa has her moments where she shines instead of simple being the damsel in distress.

    "Horrible Narrators"

    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.

    "Too bad about the narration..."

    Ok, even though I read enough of the other reviews to know the narration was questionable, I decided I had to listen anyway to keep the series flow... I'm not sorry I used a credit, but I have to add my "thumbs down" to the narration. Maybe Ms Quinn's voice will mature and find some depth and range... maybe not. But she wasn't a good fit for this story. Ed Westwick is passable but maybe he should work on his "American accent" by watching something other than the Soprano's reruns or Jersey Shore. Honestly, I kept waiting for him to have Jace say something like, "fuggadaboutit."
    Ah well... this one will likely be a "listen to once" and put it away for good entry into my library.
    On to Book 5 - hope it's with a better cast!

    "Narrators not the same"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    .


    How could the performance have been better?

    I was put off by the narrators in this book. Simon now has an accent. It is just not matching to the other volumes of this series

    "Horrible Narration!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story was great. Clare's books are fantastic.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The female narrator used the same voice and inflection the WHOLE time. The most disturbing thing, though, was that she mispronounced words, such as Idris! I could not even listen to the whole book because I could not get passed the female narrator's terrible job.

    "Read it, don't listen!"

    I am madly on love with this series! That being said I did not like the narrators AT ALL! Ed Westwick has a British accent...but none of the charters are British. Molly does every voice exactly the same!

    "Amazing story - Awful Narration!"
    Would you listen to City of Fallen Angels again? Why?

    No way - the narration made listening to the story almost painful.


    What other book might you compare City of Fallen Angels to and why?

    The book itself is amazing. If you liked the rest of the series then you will absolutely continue to love this one.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ed Westwick and Molly C. Quinn ’s performances?

    NO! the character's voices sound almost the same. Names and words are mispronounced. It was clear these two had not even bothered to hear the first stories. I don't know why the changed narrators when the first books sounded so good that you were instantly sucked into the story.
    And I'm not even going to mention how upset I got at their version of Magnus!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The story keeps you invested in the lives of the characters - if you can keep from getting distracted by the narrators (yes, it was that bad).


    Any additional comments?

    The story is great. Cassandra Clare is a master at weaving a tale that leaves you fully invested in the characters and wanting more. Do not let the narration detract you from the story itself - though you may just want to read this one rather than listen if at all possible.

    As I mentioned before, the voices do not fit the character, there is barely any change from one character to the next, the females voice sounds immature and overly enunciated as though she were so focused on pronouncing every syllable that she never gets into the "flow of the story", words are mispronounced, names are mispronounced, and I literally had to hit pause when I heard their version of Magnus.

    Great story but please go back to the original narration. This unneeded alternation creates a huge injustice and distraction to the reader.

    "Awful Narration"

    I did read the reviews before buying the book, but thought that maybe the narration wasn't actually that bad. It was. Molly's extremely high pitched, piercing, grating voice makes me dive for the volume control at every change-over. Ed was probably an inappropriate choice for narrator of a book without British characters and his attempt at NY accents is uneven at best and cringe-worthy at times, but it is tolerable overall. However, Molly's narration is awful. She reads as if she is unfamiliar with the words and is afraid of reading out loud. Beyond that, she comes across as uninterested in the story coming out of her mouth. Any narrator other than Molly Quinn would have improved the book. This is the first audiobook I have regretted purchasing and would not recommend it to anyone.

    "Great story but what's with the narrators?"

    The characters continue to develop and the listener is able to delve deeper into their personalities. It is definitely worth a credit to continue the series. My only problem is with the female narrator - flat affect and mispronunciations abound - Did she even listen to the other three books in the series??
