It's been five years since the events of City of Heavenly Fire that brought the Shadowhunters to the brink of oblivion. Emma Carstairs is no longer a child in mourning but a young woman bent on discovering what killed her parents and avenging her losses. Together with her parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches across Los Angeles, from the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica. If only her heart didn't lead her in treacherous directions....

The book itself is extremely well-written and addictive. However, it's really frustrating that with the entire series, all of the narrators seem to be incapable of pronouncing the word foyer properly. It's absolutely annoying. Not to mention, they all seem to mispronounce the word Stele, which we know the proper pronunciation from the actual author of the book. Very frustrating indeed.

sort of annoying when the narrator spells out Jules and Emma's secret language instead of saying it otherwise not the worst

City of Fallen Angels take up where City of Glass left off. With Valentine out of the way, Clary thought she and Jace could finally be together--but when someone starts murdering the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine's Circle and leaving their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to destroy the new peace between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, she realizes the past can never be left entirely behind.

The male narrator's volume is lower then the femle's and he's not as clear. The back and forth from male to female narrators is not something I really enjoyed. I would have preferred it to be one narrator the whole way through so you can get used to them more rapidly. Instead you barely get used to one then you're switching to another. I have no problem with English accents but I don't find that the male readers accent was a very clear one for pronunciation.
Additionally the female narrator often mispronounced the word foyer, Idris and Stele. words that at least were used in combination about a hundred times throughout the book it makes me want to punch her in the face it drives me crazy.

Was a wonderful kids classical book, brought to life beautifully by the narrator.

First book of 7 in the chronicles of Narnia series.
