"Waiting On" Wednesday 8
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
City of Fallen Angels (Mortal Instruments series, book 4)
By Cassandra Clare
Margaret K. McElderry, to be released April 5, 2011
City of Fallen Angels is the fourth book in the bestselling series The Mortal Instruments.
“Love, blood, betrayal and revenge — the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels. Simon Lewis is having some trouble adjusting to his new life as a vampire, especially now that he hardly sees his best friend Clary, who is caught up in training to be a Shadowhunter—and spending time with her new boyfriend Jace. Not to mention that Simon doesn’t quite know how to handle the pressure of not-quite-dating two girls at once. What’s a daylight-loving vampire to do? Simon decides he needs a break and heads out of the city—only to discover that sinister events are following him. Realizing that the war they thought they’d won might not yet be over, Simon has to call on his Shadowhunter friends to save the day—if they can put their own splintering relationships on hold long enough to rise to the challenge.”

Check out that nice, flashy counter down on the bottom-right corner of my page, just ticking down the time to April 5, 2011, when the latest installment in the Mortal Instrument series is released. I'm THAT excited.
Jace and Clary are one of my favorite couples, and I'm excited to see what's in store for them next. It sounds like this book is more Simon-focused, and while he's never been my favorite, Cassie Clare is such a master at creating alternate universes that I'm more than happy to go wherever she's going to take me in City of Fallen Angels. Can't wait!
