City of Fallen Angels takes place two months after the events of City of Glass. In it, a mysterious someone’s killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and displaying their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, leaving tensions running high in the city and disrupting Clary’s plan to lead as normal a life as she can — training to be a Shadowhunter, and pursuing her relationship with Jace. As Jace and Clary delve into the issue of the murdered Shadowhunters, they discover a mystery that has deeply personal consequences for them — consequences that may strengthen their relationship, or rip it apart forever.
Meanwhile, internecine warfare among vampires is tearing the Downworld community apart, and only Simon — the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side — can decide the outcome; too bad he wants nothing to do with Downworld politics. Love, blood, betrayal and revenge: the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.

Someone always plotting behind the scenes.Everyone wanting a piece of Simon to use him for the own cause knowing that they cannot hurt him with consequences.But, by using the ones he loves will force him to become one of the bad guys he wants no to part of. And Clary and Jace can these two ever catch a break and be together in love like a normal couple.The answer is no ! Two head vampires plotting to over throw the other not knowing who is telling the truth and the lies unfold as the adventure becomes apparent who and what is pulling the real strings wanting to raise Sebastien from the dead and needing Simon to be part of it. Knowing full well he won't cooperate. And someone forcing his hands..Jace pushing Clary and his treatment of her is getting a little tiresome! Make up your mind and just talk to her and tell her what your feeling and not making decisions on your own thinking your a protecting her and its for her own good. She can take care of herself !!!!!
