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 all of the other reviews are saying, the narrations are gold. For comedy. Just comedy. Sad, sad comedy. If you like physically cringing your entire body in public (aside from my commute, I listen to audible while I shop so I don't have to interact with others) this is the book for you. Okay. I tried. I really did. I got as far as Chapter 14 before I went out to actually buy the freakin' book. It's like you can hear the already bad narrations deteriorate along with your soul as the story progresses. I'm not a person who's overly sensitive about people who dive into others' cultures because it's awesome, but the female narrator... I have never used the term cultural appropriation so fast lol. And I usually love when narrators use accents! This was nottttt okay. But the book is very good! I barely have time to shower, but I'm going to do the book justice and read it the good ol' fashioned way. I suggest you do that, too. Unless you like misery... which is cool, too.

For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison.

You will feel like you need to pull all-nighters. Your social life will suffer. If you use audio books while at the gym, you'll reach your goal weight as you easily lose track of four hours on a treadmill. You will be tired and dependent on coffee. This was me and it was worth it.

Enter Sanderson's Cosmere at your own risk. I regret nothing.
