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...

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman Review

Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy chronicles Simon Lewis’ time as a ShadowHunter in training. 
4.5 Stars as a collection (5 on Goodreads)!
I’m using TFTSA as my book by two authors, as it’s by multiple authors. If anyone wants me to name just one story by two authors in the collection, then I choose Born To An Endless Night. I explain why in my review, below...

Welcome To ShadowHunter Academy
I loved this short story! 
5 Stars!
We get introduced to our main characters from the previous TMI books. Simon, our main character is entertaining as he tries to remember who he is or was before he lost his memories in City Of Heavenly Fire. We get a cameo from Isabelle who offers her heart to Simon. He however says that he isn’t interested in a relationship until he can remember who he was.
The new characters we’re introduced to are either students or teachers at Shadowhunter Academy. One student in particular, George, becomes Simon’s best friend supporting him through his worries a…

Solstice at Stonewylde (Stonewylde Book 3) by Kit Berry Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 
I’ve just finished “Solstice at Stonewylde” by Kit Berry and I really liked it! It’s the third book in the Stonewylde series, the finale of the original trilogy. This was a reread as the first and second book were, as well. I don’t think I necessarily had as much fun as I did reading the previous two books because I didn’t think quite as much happened in it. Reading is subjective, though, so we all experience different thoughts and feelings as we read. That’s part of what I love about it. Anyway, there are 5 books in the Stonewylde series in total. The last 2 focus on a different storyline to the others, however, with the lead characters from the first three books as adults. 
4 Stars!
In “Solstice at Stonewylde” we’re still following Yul and Sylvie and their relationship where they’re trying to be together no matter what. Living in a society run by a tyrannical leader makes that hard, however. Magus, the leader of Stonewylde won’t let Yul and Sylvie be together and he…

Starlight Nights (732 Days #2) by Stacey Kade Review

Hey ForeverBookers,
“Starlight Nights”, the first book that I read this year was fantastic! It was like a soap opera with how many storylines it had. There was a love story, a selfish parent story, a drugs story, a friendship story, along with more. The book is long enough to fit all those different stories too as it’s 400 pages.

"Starlight Nights" is the second book in a series of linked contemporary standalone novels. I say linked because there’s a character featured as a side character who’s a main character in the first book 738 Days by Stacey Kade, too. I read this as a standalone, though and it was fine. 

I read “Starlight Nights" for the “A book that’s published in 2018” goal on the Popsugar Reading Challenge. 
Netgalley were kind enough to grant me a review copy of “Starlight Nights” so it’s thanks to them as well as the publisher that I’ve been able to read and review this...
Calista and Eric are the main characters. “Starlight Nights” is told from both of their per…
