Haven't done this in awhile but here we go! Many of you know, Cassandra Clare is one of my heros! I love her! So, when I found out that the fourth book of The Mortal Instruments series is coming out next year. I was in a mix of joy and anxiety. I want this book to hurry up and release already but I'm mostly glad that we finally get to continue the series! Since I like to get stuff from the source, I visited Cassandra's site and gathered the info over the Fallen Angels:
"City of Fallen Angels takes place about six 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 several 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 (release date: 4/5/2011)."
Exciting, right? I am a little iffy about Simon being the narrator because I want to know the dirty details of Jace's and Clary's relationship, but I guess will just have to witness from afar until the fifth and six book! (Yes, there are two more books after the fourth that will be released, check those out here.) But, the Fallen Angels seems to be getting under way. I think half of my anticipation is over the cover! Cassandra's book covers are ridiculously beautiful! We'll just have to see. I'm already counting the days!
For those of you who like to tell what you're waiting for and the books that have you so close off of the edge of the bookshelf, here is your chance! I decided to open the Wanted Wedensdays to everyone! Below is a forum! Put your blog's name and link back to your blog. On your blog, tell your readers your wants and I will have four questions for you to answer because Wedensday is the fourth day of the week!
The four questions for this week are:
1. What is your favorite book?
2. What is your favorite book to movie?
3. What are you currently reading?
4. What do you like to do (reading-wise) over the holidays?
1. Star crossed by Mark Schreiber
2. I should say Harry Potter but I have to say the Twilight saga because I followed the series closely.
3. I am currently reading Blue Bloods by Melissa de le Cruz
4. I love reading by the fire (cliché, I know) and sitting next to the Christmas tree and reading. It seems cozy though.
Peace and Fangs,
