City Of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments Book 4) Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished City Of Fallen Angels and I loved it. I don't know why I stopped reading it before because it continues the  Mortal Instruments series nicely. 

We get to see more of the other characters here, I feel. The first three books were focused mainly on Clary and Jace and their relationship and while I love reading about them I also liked seeing the relationships of others. 

City Of Fallen Angels is primarily Simon's book I feel as he gets the most character development. He starts off as this vampire who doesn't know what he's meant to do with his new life/powers but in the last chapter we see him accept his new life and the person he's become. 

There are again a range of characters that come into this book. One of the new characters is known as Kyle for most of the book. He's a werewolf it is revealed, as well as the werewolf that turned Maia. 
Kyle is a protective figure for Simon who's still a new vampire as well as Maia's ex. I found Kyle's character to be a little boring but I could see why it was necessary for him to be there. When Maia came into the story in previous books, we were told that her ex was this horrible character, hell bent on wreaking havoc. This book didn't have any of that. 

However, having said that there most certainly is an evil force in this book - two in fact. The title City Of Fallen Angels has meaning because the "Fallen Angels" are in fact babies that have been killed in a horrific experiment gone wrong. Lilith, the "mother" of all these changed and mutilated babies can't have children of her own, so she steals mothers, implants a demon gene and becomes the mother herself when their real mothers die. When the Shadowhunters discover her lair they're shocked by just how many babies and human mothers she's taken. 

What Lilith really has planned though is for Sebastian or Jonathan as he was named, to come back from the dead. To make this happen she needs Simon to drain his blood and give him new blood. Of course this doesn't happen, however there's a slight cliff hanger to this book that I don't want to spoil but let's just say it's good and sets the next book "City Of Lost Souls" up well. 

I'm giving City Of Fallen Angels five stars again. I think last time I read the series it was having to wait between books for the next one that put me off reading them as I loved the story this time. I loved every bit of this book to be honest. The comedy moments made me laugh out loud. I'm looking forward to reading City Of Lost Souls next...

This Side Of Murder (Verity Kent #1) by Anna Lee Huber Review...

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished This Side Of Murder by Anna Lee Hubert and it was great! This isn't my normal type of read but I still enjoyed it. 

NetGalley allowed me access to This Side Of Murder so thanks to them for letting me read and review it.

This Side Of Murder tells the story of widower, Verity. She's going to a house party on an island near England. This story is really about Verity trying to figure out a code as she was a secret code breaker in the war. Verity lost her husband in the War, or so she thinks...
4 Stars
The book is set just after World War 1 so there are some customs that are different to now, smoking being seen as a good or relaxing thing, for example. 
Verity meets another attendee of the party, Max on the way there. They strike up a friendship. The other attendees are rather hostile to Verity. The other women treat her terribly and the other men just seem to ignore her. 
This is a mystery novel where we're trying to work out lots of things.…

The Fifth Letter by Nicola Moriarty Review.

Hi ForeverBookers, a belated Happy New Year to you all! I hope you all had a great Christmas as well. The Fifth Letter was my first read of 2017, and I enjoyed it. It wasn't all that I thought it would be but it still held my attention.

I got The Fifth Letter as a NetGalley arc so thank you to NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read it.


The Fifth Letter is published on January 24th 2017 but it's is very much an ADULT read! It's is about 4 girls, Joni, Deb, Trina and Eden who were friends at school. They go away to a house for a get together trip in their 30's. The main part of the story is set while the girls are in their 30's. One of them has the idea for them each to write a secret - something they've never told anyone else before but it's kept confidential. Then each one of the girls will read a random secret, and try to work out who it belongs to.

It's  set in Australia, which is a little different as most books I read are set in the USA/th…

This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished an awesome book! I got This Mortal Coil from NetGalley so thanks to them for letting me read it. It was soooo good!! 
5 Stars!!!
This Mortal Coil is a dystopian story that tells the story of Catarina who, along with friends has to find out who she is among the strife of a deadly plague that's killing off the worlds population through hydra clouds. 
The story is told from first person POV, which I loved! I thought the author did a great job at tackling different emotions that our main character, Catarina went through. 
There are too many good parts to quote. I'm not going to do that as this review would be so long if I did but I've summarised what happens below...SPOILERS!!!  
We see Catarina start as a shy girl with not much experience of the outside world become a warrior. Some may class this as a "special snowflake story", whereby Cat is the special one that everyone has been waiting for. She doesn't know this, tho…
