Book Review: City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare

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

Pirate Princess’s Review

DESCRIPTION: ”

Don’t miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, soon to be a major motion picture in theaters August 2013.

The Mortal War is over, and sixteen-year-old Clary Fray is back home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She’s training to become a Shadowhunter and to use her unique power. Her mother is getting married to the love of her life. Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last. And—most importantly of all—she can finally call Jace her boyfriend.

But nothing comes without a price.

Someone is murdering Shadowhunters, provoking tensions between Downworlders and Shadowhunters that could lead to a second, bloody war. Clary’s best friend, Simon, can’t help her—his mother just found out that he’s a vampire, and now he’s homeless. When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why, Clary is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: she herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves. Even Jace.

The stakes are higher than ever in the #1 New York Times bestselling fourth installment of the Mortal Instruments series.”

RATING ~ 5 AWESOME STARS! A MUST READ!

By. The. Angel. This rocked!!!!!!!!!! 

I needed something to read one night, so I remembered this series. I found myself buying the book, then finishing it within 4 days time. Clary Fray, Jace Lightwood, Simon Lewis, Isabelle and Alec Lightwood, and Magnus Bane are back in book 4 of The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare! The main conflict? Someone is murdering Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s circle, causing unrest and tension between the Downworlders and Shadowhunters.

This book……Just cracked me up so freaking bad. It was hilarious, with witty remarks and just outright awesomeness.Want some examples? ^-^ I have plenty.

“Is this one of those keep-your-friends-close-and-your-enemies-closer things?”
“I though it was keep your friends close so you have someone to drive the car when you sneak over to your enemy’s house at night and throw up in his mailbox.”

“As long as everyone’s wearing their own pants.”
“I see I have come in on a fascinating moment in the conversation.”

Simon looked from one of them to the other, and shook his head. “ When did you two get so buddy-buddy? Last night it was all, ‘I’m the most elite warrior!’ ‘No, I’m the most elite warrior!’ And today you’re playing Halo and giving each other props for good ideas.”

“If we’re going to the Silent City, you might want to get dressed. I mean, I appreciate the bra-and-panties look, but I don’t know if the Silent Brothers will. There are only a few of the left, and I don’t want the to die of excitement.”

See what I mean? It’s awesome! ☺

Now, I have something to say. There’s a minor character in this book. A girl that’s 14-years old. She was sweet and kind….But the way the author wrote it made the teenager seem like she was 10. *facepalm* Why?! I’m a teenager, as you all know, and I know that that character should’ve been a bit more mature.

I have just one more negative comment. Jace…..was a bit mushy in this book. 🙁 And I think I can understand why, but I wish that he was like in the previous books, ya know? Not as mushy. He was still the king of sarcasm though. 🙂

Well, that’s pretty much it! I’ll be getting the 5th book soon, and watching the City of Bones movie that comes out in August 2013. 😉 This book get five stars! Congratz, Cassandra! Good work! LOVE THIS BOOK.

5 stars, books are better, book reviews, best in YA books, best YA novels

I recommend to Cassandra Clare’s fans, of course. Ages 13-Adults should take a peek. 😉 But only if you’ve read the previous three books! Also, if you’ve read  the Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare, defiantly read this series.

Book Review: Bane (Vampire Apocalypse #1) by H.M. Ward

Bane (Vampire Apocalypse #1) by H.M. Ward

A Pirate Princess Review

DESCRIPTION: The world as we know it is gone. The ice caps have melted and shifted south, devastating the northern territories and eradicating major cities such as New York and London, which are now under water and frozen.

Humans died off during an epidemic prior to the ice disaster, and many more died during the floods at the start of this new ice age. These events have forced vampires out of hiding. In order to ensure that their food source wouldn’t completely die off, the vampires have sequestered the remaining humans into farms and taken control of all that remains of civilization. Over time, the humans breeding on these farms became anemic. Their blood no longer sustains the master race.

But not all of the humans were captured and sent to the farms. Some of the humans evaded the hunters, hiding in safe houses across the frozen tundra. As decades passed, the free humans disappeared, died, or were captured, until all that remains is one.

Kahli is the last wild human. BANE is her story.

RATING – 5 STARS OF AWESOMENESS!

I GOT TO GET AN ARC {Advanced Reserved Copy} AND IT WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D:D:D

Bane is the most awesome vampire book I’ve read. The main character is Kahli, a six-teen-year old girl who is wicked awesome and is super cool!!!!!!!

This book’s main conflict is; How will Kahli escape? (Hehe, doesn’t make sense to you guys huh? Well….READ THE BOOK!)

The story line is amazing, I love the character (*cough, cough* KAHLI!). I like the action in the book and, again, I ♥ Kahli. 😉 There’s a character named Will, where at first I would like to punch him….Well, read the book.

The ending was a cliffhanger, a good one. That’s why I WANT THE SECOND BOOK TO BE FREAKING OUT NOW!!!!!!!! Hehe, uhhh, sorry about that outburst.

Anyways, it takes place in the world, but the whole things is covered in snow. Some cities are buried under ice, impossible to get to.

This book is on my ‘Awesomest Books Ever Read’ shelf because it truly is an awesome book. I love the characters (Except for some), the plot, the conflicts, all of it basically. Hehe 😀

ME WANT BOOK 2!!!!!!!!!!! (I sound like Cookie Monster when I’m really excited!!!! :D)

5 stars, books are better, book reviews, best in YA books, best YA novels

Recommended for readers who like vampires, action/ adventure books, Twilight, Hunger Games, romance, and edgy paranormal stories with kickin’ heroines.
