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.

    "ther ones before were way better"
    What did you like best about City of Fallen Angels? What did you like least?

    the story continues but is getting slowed down with too much lack of progress with Clarie & Jace.. get on with it already...The change in narrators was not needed & not as good.. Bring back Natalie Moore.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Cassandra Clare? Why or why not?

    Not with these narrators.


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

    I did not. Ed is hard to understand & Molly sounds like a valley girl from Ca.


    Did City of Fallen Angels inspire you to do anything?

    Hope for the end...


    Any additional comments?

    Moved on to Allegiant!!!

    "Great story, TERRIBLE narrators"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, the story of this book was wonderful!


    How could the performance have been better?

    I hated the narrators. They were incredibly horrible especially compared with the previous books. The male voice with the British accent was very difficult to understand when the book first began. The female voice was a thousand times worse. She completely mispronounced all of the series specific words... I had to cringe every time I heard her voice. The switch between male & female voices were seemingly at random and did not make any sense in relation to the book. If the story hadn't been so good, I probably would have stopped listening, even though I had paid for the book. I just hope they have changed narrators for the next book because I can't stand any more of these 2.

    Story
    "I'm not from England..."
    What would have made City of Fallen Angels better?

    I've literally just started the book and I can hardly understand a thing the reader is saying because his accent is so thick... I'm from Ohio, I speak English, this reader makes the book very very very hard to listen to. I don't even know if I'll be able to listen to the rest without having to return it... THAT'S how hard it is to understand.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love the characters, it has nothing to do with the story itself.


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

    I haven't even gotten to Molly's performance, I'm hoping to god she speaks with an American dialect, but I'm loosing all hope for that as the seconds press on. Ed is extremely English, which isn't a bad thing, but when you can't tell what he's saying on your favorite book series... it's bad.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The accent that I can't understand... is disappointing to say the least, I've spend three days listening to these amazing books, and I don't think I'll be able to make it through the fourth... :/

    "Narration - Like Fingernails on a Chalkboard"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Ed Westwick and Molly C. Quinn ’s performances?

    Absolutely NOT. Molly Quinn's voice is so annoying. I really want to know how Cassandra Clare continues this story BUT It literally pains me to listen to this book. If I wasn't already intrigued by the story from the first three books I would just give it up. At least this one is only 13hrs (and Molly only narrates half the time) - The next book in this series is 17 hrs AND is only Molly narrating - God please grant me the serenity to get through it.

    My work commute is an hour and 15 minutes each way. Listening to audiobooks has become a way for me to actually enjoy that time. Unfortunately, Molly C Quinn has made me almost dread the drive home.

    on a side note, I do like Ed Westwick's voice - but it's not a good match for this book.

    Any additional comments?

    I have really come to love this series! Cassandra Clare has developed a fantastic world of magical creatures with just enough of teen angst to make it engaging. Twilight and Harry Potter fans...YA and fantasy readers...give this series a try. This is the 4th in the Mortal Instruments series, but I read Clockwork Angel before reading City of Fallen Angels. There are references to Jace's ancestors who we meet Clockwork Angel, so it was nice to have met them already. Can't wait for the next book! Keep 'em coming Cassandra Clare!

    "Good story, rough narration."

    Ed Westwick should stick to screen acting. His pacing was inconsistent; he needed to enunciate; the mumbling was just ridiculous. I found myself repeatedly having to rewind and listen to sections over again because I couldn't understand him. Although Molly Quinn's narration was pretty spot on, I wish that I would have just read this title instead of listening to it!

    "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?
