"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted at Breaking-The-Spine.com that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. This week I'm waiting on...
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare (Book #4 in the Mortal Instruments series)
To Be Released: April 5th, 2011
“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.”
Not the most original pick this week, but I'm one of the many who absolutely cannot wait for this long-awaited fourth book in the Mortal Instruments series. For a long time after reading City of Glass, I never imagined there might ever be a fourth book in this fantastic so-called 'trilogy'. (And a fifth and a sixth, now.) I love the cover, because it's true to the style of the first three books, but still manages to be uniquely beautiful.
So, what are you waiting on this Wednesday?
