Special Content for ‘City of Lost Souls’ Revealed

With City of Lost Souls just about three months away from its May 8 release, Cassandra Clare has shared some news regarding the special content that will come in different editions of the book.

Four different stores in the US will be carrying a different form of special content.

Special Content:


BARNES AND NOBLE will be carrying their own special edition. It will contain a letter from Stephen Herondale (Jace’s real father) to Jace, written before he died. It will be detachable and affixed to the back of the book.

WALMART will be carrying its own special edition. It will contain the short story “A Dark Transformation” about how Jonathan Morgenstern took over the identity of Sebastian Verlac.

COSTCO will be carrying its own special edition. It will contain “The Act of Falling”: the “alleyway kiss” from City of Fallen Angels from Jace’s perspective.

Target will be carrying its own special edition: the short story “A Question of Power” in which Alec and Camille talk about Magnus and his father.

In Canada:

INDIGO/CHAPTERS will be carrying the same special edition as BARNES AND NOBLE in the US. COSTCO CANADA will be carrying the same edition as COSTCO US.

In Australia/In the UK:

Still waiting on this info.

This has got to be the best collection of special content to be released with a book.

Keep in mind that all special content will be available to read online after an exclusivity period of between 3-6 months.
