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.

    "Good story, lousy narration."
    What disappointed you about City of Fallen Angels?

    I've listened to the first three and really enjoyed them. Everything I am reading here is true. Simon is terribly miscast, and Clarie, even worse. Mispronounced words, poor reading skills, just plain bad. I hope the next one isn't the same narrators, but if they are, I'll be reading the book instead.


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

    Worst of the first four


    What didn’t you like about Ed Westwick and Molly C. Quinn ’s performance?

    Nothing


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    "Awful Narrators for this Book!"

    First of all I don't understand why you would change narrators on book 4, and secondly these were terrible narrators for this book. Clarissa sounds like a whinny child and Jas sounds like a deranged Stallone. The story was good, typical of this author but I found it very distracting that they did not even pronounce names and other things the same way.

    "What the...?? I'm in Narrator Shock!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    So, I was planning on doing only the audio version of these books, straight through from book 1 up to 5 (probably like most people). Loved the last book (book 3) and the narrator was phenomenal. However, my joy came to a shocking halt when I heard the first narrator. W-W-What?? Why would anyone in their right mind hire a narrator for this particular series with an English accent? Not only does he have an strong accent, he talks so quiet one minute and then shouts the next and then mumbles. I often miss what he's saying and have to back up my player to listen again--which I have never had to do.
    Ed Westwick may look like Simon, he may even be a good actor, but not even a fair choice for this book.

    My question is: Why would you go and ruin a good thing? We were all used to the narrator of Book 2 & 3, who was excellent changing her voice to accommodate the different characters voices. Was she not available?? Seriously a terrible decision to change.

    I personally didn't even make it to the second narrator because I had to buy the Kindle version to figure out what the heck was going on. I am truly upset that I used a credit on this--such a disappointment.

    "Book is great narration is NOT"
    What made the experience of listening to City of Fallen Angels the most enjoyable?

    The book was generally good, the cast is the same not to many new characters introduced to distract from the plot line.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of City of Fallen Angels?

    The most memorable is always Jace and Simons interactions, they pretty much make the books.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narration is HORRIBLE. The voices do not go with the characters at ALL. The words are not even pronounced the same as they have been through the other four books of the series, it is a distraction and with the accents the narrators have it makes it hard to understand.


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

    I enjoyed the book in general, would like to have a better finality of the last scene but all in all it was entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    If you can get over the narration the book is a good listen.

    "Should have read the reviews!!!"

    The reviews were right the narrators were not good at all. The guy is a mumbler you really have to listen to catch what hes saying as the words run together. His voice is so deep he cant really change the characters voices. The girl is a little better but all the voices sound the same and some times i think she forgets who she is speaking for cause she uses the wrong voice although it's not that much of a change. I don't mind the girl i feel relief every time the guy stops talking. I think i can make it through though. Keep this in mind before getting this book.

    "Narrators were abysmal"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Had Molly C Quinn narrated the first in this series I would have NEVER listened to any other in the series. Not only does she have no differentiation in her characters, her pronunciation of several words made me wonder at first what she was even referring to.
    If there were any way to not have to listen to her in book five I would. I am tempted not to even buy it here she is that distracting to the storyline.

    "Reiterating other reviews..re: Narrators."
    Any additional comments?

    Molly C. Quinn is a great actress. I Love her on Castle. I just wish that she had listened to the previous books and how things were pronounced, and possibly the accents of some of the characters. Better yet, the producers could have mentioned it and coached her. It totally takes away from the enjoyment. Ed Westwicks voice is like butter on a hot day, but I also think he should have listened to the previous books just to get an idea as to how they were performed. It is a little jarring going from the previous book (who performed it amazingly) to this book.
