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.

    "Why did they switch narrators?"
    Would you consider the audio edition of City of Fallen Angels to be better than the print version?

    NO!!!! I hate the narrators of this story. They can't pronounce word right and don't create character voices. It is hard to follow a conversation.


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

    No, I want Natalie Moore back. She was not the best but she is way better than these two!


    Any additional comments?

    The story is great, but the narrators are awful. I wanted to buy the book and read it instead of listening because I can't stand listening to these two ruin this book.

    Story
    "Almost a disaster!"
    Would you listen to City of Fallen Angels again? Why?

    I would listen to the book again if I was going through the series again. I wouldn't just listen to the book stand alone.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story had a good enough final act that it truly saved this from being a disaster. The character development has been good and they have primarily continued to grow.


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

    Find Someone Else!!!! - It's not that they did a bad job but I feel like they didn't listen to the previous books. You can't just change characters "voices" 4 books into the series. At least try to keep the same tone for the characters. And PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE find a way to keep the names of things pronounced the same through the ALL the books. Not the first time that a name, place, or thing was pronounced one way in book one and another in the next... the word Editor comes to mind.


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

    2/3 into the book I was wondering why I was still listening. Normally I'm disappointed to arrive at my destination but this book didn't quite have the same effect until the end.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're listening to this one... don't give up, the ending makes the book worth it.
    p.s. - my wife and I share this account - this is really Aaron.

    "worst narrators EVER!"
    Any additional comments?

    Worst possible narrators. The male voice has an unexplained (and unnecessary) accent, the female voice is either yelling hysterically or whispering sensually.

    The book is OK, but it's hard to enjoy it with these two.

    "Good story, bad narrators"

    I have to agree with other reviewers-- I did not like the narrators. I understand that they were trying to be "hip" by using famous young actors, but they sadly didn't do the story justice. Ed Westwick is British, so all of his chapters were read in a British accent even though the story takes place in New York. No sense of excitement in either narrator, and words were mispronounced, or at least pronounced differently than they had been in prior books and it was jarring. Very hard to tell different characters apart. Pretty much one "girl voice" and one "boy voice" for each narrator.

    The story, however, was still strong enough to hold my attention, but I wish they had used a different narrator. If you're a fan of the series, this is better than not having an audiobook, but if you're able I would recommend reading a physical copy.

    "Great Series!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of City of Fallen Angels to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version.


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

    It's so different from most books I've read. It's got Shadow Hunters who are human but with special powers. It also has vampires, werewolves, worlocks, wizards and demons. There is also a romance storyline that adds a lot to the mix and mysterious happenings.


    Which character – as performed by Ed Westwick and Molly C. Quinn – was your favorite?

    I love the main girl, Clarey. And I also really like her best friend Simon who...oh, I guess I shouldn't say what special thing happens to Simon. It might give away something. And I'm also attracted to the gay worlock whose name excapes me at the moment. Oh, there are so many very interesting charactors in these books!! Oh, and I really like Isabel, she's glamorous, tough and kookie!


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

    It's a book I never wanted to finish because it was so good. But it WAS very hard to put down. I'm glad there are many books in the series!!


    Any additional comments?

    Check out the Mortal Instruments series if you like young adult fiction and lots of action and mysterious stuff.

    "Good Book So So Narration"
    If you could sum up City of Fallen Angels in three words, what would they be?

    So So narration


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the book. However Mr. Westwick and Ms. Quinn could not seem to keep the pronunciations of places and things together. They each pronounced places and objects of the story differently which I felt really detracted from the story.

    "Terrible Female Narrator!"
    Any additional comments?

    This would have been enjoyable if it weren't for Molly C. Quinn, the female narrator. She's got a high pitched whiny voice that has no depth, or emotional range.
    Molly took any enjoyment out of this book.

    Ed Westwick, the male narrator, was decent. Though going between his (British?) accent into a New York accent can be a bit rough to get used to, he was certainly leagues better at narrating than Molly.

    "HORRIBLE Narrators"

    The story is brilliant as always. Cassandra Clare is an extraordinary author, and I really can't wait to read all of the mortal instruments series. However, the narrators for City of Fallen Angels are unbelievably horrible. In fact, if I could think of a worse word to describe how bad they are, I’d use it. The woman is bad enough but the guy seems to lack feeling of any kind for the story or the characters. I wish they had stuck with Natalie Moore, I liked her; she made the story come to life.

    That is very touching that it made me cry.
