City of Fallen Angels: My thoughts...what are yours?

Spoilers: If you haven't read The Mortal Instruments books 1-3 you will find spoilers in this blog post!!!!

With the release of the fourth book in Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instuments series fast approaching, I'd like to talk a little about this series. I'm super excited to find out what will happen in City of Fallen angels and I'd love to hear from you guys what you think will be happening with your favourite characters.

So far out of this series City of Glass was my favourite. I loved the detail in the city and the twist involving Sebastian, and of course finding out that Jace and Clary AREN'T brother and sister. lol

I think in COFA, Sebastian will make an appearance and more than likely stir up some trouble. Simon will obviously have a larger roll in this book, and i'm curious to see where his story is headed now that he is the most wanted vampire out there for being a Daylighter. Clary and Jace will be the main love focus; trying to work out their relationship, and the whole gang will be involved in the mystery of who is killing off shadowhunters.

I'm also curious to see who will be killed off in this book; will it be anyone we know as a favourite character or all just random chartacters? My favourite character is Jace, just because of his attitude and comedic commentary and I hope there's still plenty of him in this book.

Here's Cassandra Clare's top 10 list of what will NOT happen in COFA:

1. Alec and Magnus are not getting married no matter what Isabelle says.
2. Simon's band does not apply to a major label
3. Jace does not travel back in time to the Victorian era and get into a fight with Will
4. Jace does not travel back in time to the Victorian era and hit on Tessa
5. Clary does not rope Magnus into posing naked for her life drawing class
6. Luke does not need to get his tuxedo altered when he shows up at his wedding in wolf form
7. Max does not return from the dead leading a tiny zombie army
8. Church and Chairman Meow are not getting married no matter what Isabelle says.
9. Jace does not get addicted to Clary's Magical love gentlemen and starts stealing copies of it from her room.
10. Nobody takes a road trip to South Carolina.

Enjoy those little tidbits :)

Comment on this post and lets see what your thoughts are for this next book!!

Here's the description for City of Fallen Angels:

City of Fallen Angels takes place about eight weeks after the events of City of Glass. It continues the story begun in City of Bones, while also starting a new story, with new challenges and a new enemy to beset our protagonists. All the core characters from the Mortal Instruments series appear in it: Jace, Isabelle, Clary, Simon, Alec, Magnus, Luke, Jocelyn, Maia, and many more. (It even helps to have read The Clockwork Angel before you read CoFA, because some of the characters from the ID series do show up in it. However, it isn’t required.) 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.

City of Fallen Angels will be released April 5, 2011. Preorder your copy today!
