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 Of The Shadowhunter Academy Review...
Tales Of 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…

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…

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.…
