City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments, Book 4) by Cassandra Clare

Love, blood, betrayal and revenge – the stakes are higher than ever in the fourth
book in the bestselling Mortal Instruments sequence.
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 Shadow
hunter – and spending time with her new boyfriend, Jace. Simon decides he needs a
break and heads out of the city – only to discover that sinister events are following him.
Realising 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.
