City of Heavenly Fire snippets

Here are snippets from CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE, the conclusion of the internationally bestselling THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS due out in MAY 27, 2014, that Cassandra Clare has shared online:


Alec looked down at the shattered pieces in disbelief. “You BROKE my PHONE.”

Jace shrugged. “Guys don’t let other guys keep calling other guys. Okay, that came out wrong. Friends don’t let friends keep calling their exes and hanging up. Seriously. You have to stop.”

Alec looked furious. “So you broke my brand new phone? Thanks a lot.”

Jace smiled serenely and lay back on the grass. “You’re welcome.”

Snippet #2

“I think,” Jace said, “that you don’t want to tell your secrets, so you decided to break up with Alec because..”

Snippet #3

“No killing,” Jordan said. “We’re trying to make you feel peaceful, so you don’t go up in flames. Blood, killing, war, those are all non-peaceful things. Isn’t there anything else you like? Rainforests? Chirping birds?”

“Weapons,” said Jace. “I like weapons.”

“I’m starting to think we have a problematic issue of personal philosophy here.”

Jace leaned forward, his palms flat on the ground. “I’m a warrior,” he said. “I was brought up as a warrior. I didn’t have toys, I had weapons. I slept with a wooden sword until I was five. My first books were medieval demonologies with illuminated pages. The first songs I learned were chants to banish demons. I know what brings me peace, and it isn’t sandy beaches or chirping birds in rainforests. I want a weapon in my hand and a strategy to win.”

Jordan looked at him levelly. “So you’re saying that what brings you peace … is war.”

“Now you get it.” 

Snippet #4

“We shouldn’t,” protested Isabelle. “The Clave has a plan.”

“The Clave has the collective intelligence of a pineapple,” said Jace.

Alec blinked up at them. “Jace is right.”

Isabelle turned on her brother. “What do you know? You weren’t even paying attention.”

“I was,” Alec said, injured. “I said Jace was right.”

“Yeah, but there’s like a 90% chance of me being right most of the time, so that’s not proof you were listening,” said Jace. “That’s just a good guess.”

Snippet #5

Magnus rolled onto his back and put his feet up on the arm of the sofa. “What do you care if Alec’s miserable?”

“What do I care?” Jace said, so loudly that Chairman Meow rolled off the couch and landed on the floor. “Of course I care about Alec; he’s my best friend, my parabatai. And he’s unhappy. And so are you, by the look of things. Takeout containers everywhere, you haven’t done anything to fix up the place, your cat looks dead —“

“He’s not dead.”

Snippet #6

She turned to look at Sebastian, lying on the bed. He was shirtless, and even in the dim light the old whip weals across his back were visible. She had always been fascinated by Shadowhunters but had never thought she would find one whose personality she could stand for more than five minutes, until Sebastian.

Snippet #7

“Simon,” said a voice at his shoulder, and he turned to see Izzy, her face a pale smudge between dark hair and dark cloak, looking at him, her expression half-angry, half-sad. “I guess this is the part where we say goodbye?”

Snippet #8

A moment later, Helen had returned; she was walking slowly now, and carefully, her hand on the back of a thin boy with a mop of wavy brown hair. He couldn’t have been older than twelve, and Clary recognized him immediately. Helen, her hand firmly clamped around the wrist of a younger boy whose hands were covered with blue wax. He must have been playing with the tapers in the huge candelabras that decorated the sides of the nave. He looked about twelve, with an impish grin and the same wavy, bitter-chocolate hair as his sister.

Jules, Helen had called him. Her little brother.

The impish grin was gone now. He looked tired and dirty and frightened. Skinny wrists stuck out of the cuffs of a white mourning jacket whose sleeves were too long for him. In his arms he was carrying a little boy, probably not more than two years old, with the same wavy brown hair that he had; it seemed to be a family trait. The rest of his family wore the same borrowed mourning clothes: following Julian was a brunette girl about ten, her hand firmly clasped in the hold of a boy the same age: the boy had a sheet of tangled black hair that nearly obscured his face. Fraternal twins, Clary guessed. After them came a girl who might have been eight or nine, her face round and very pale between brown braids.

The misery on their faces cut at Clary’s heart. She thought of her power with runes, wishing that she could create one that would soften the blow of loss. Mourning runes existed, but only to honor the dead, in the same way that love runes existed, like wedding rings, to symbolize the bond of love. You couldn’t make someone love you with a rune, and you couldn’t assuage grief with it, either. So much magic, Clary thought, and nothing to mend a broken heart.

“Julian Blackthorn,” said Jia Penhallow, and her voice was gentle. “Step forward, please.”

Julian swallowed and handed the little boy he was holding over to his sister. He stepped forward, his eyes darting around the room. He was clearly scouring the crowd for someone. His shoulders had just begun to slump when another figure darted out onto the stage. A girl, also about twelve, with a tangle of blond hair that hung down around her shoulders: she wore jeans and a t-shirt that didn’t quite fit, and her head was down, as if she couldn’t bear so many people looking at her. It was clear that she didn’t want to be there — on the stage or perhaps even in Idris — but the moment he saw her, Julian seemed to relax. The terrified look vanished from his expression as she moved to stand next to him, her face ducked down and away from the crowd.

“Julian,” said Jia, in the same gentle voice, “would you do something for us? Would you take up the Mortal Sword?”

Snippet #9

His eyes shone when he looked at her, green as spring grass.

He has always had green eyes, said the voice in her head. People often marvel at how much alike you are, he and your mother and yourself. His name is Jonathan and he is your brother; he has always protected you.

Somewhere in the back of Clary’s mind she saw black eyes and whip marks, but she didn’t know why. He’s your brother. He’s your brother, and he’s always taken care of you.

Snippet #10

“Okayyyyy,” Isabelle said in a low voice, “When did Brother Zachariah get hot?”

Snippet #11

Black for hunting through the night

For death and mourning the color’s white

Gold for a bride in her wedding gown

And red to call enchantment down.

White silk when our bodies burn,

Blue banners when the lost return.

Flame for the birth of a Nephilim,

And to wash away our sins.

Gray for knowledge best untold,

Bone for those who don’t grow old.

Saffron lights the victory march,

Green will mend our broken hearts.

Silver for the demon towers,

And bronze to summon wicked powers.

— Shadowhunter children’s rhyme

Snippet #12

They landed at Simon’s feet. “Take your clothes and go!” Isabelle shouted.

Snippet #13

“Why did he kiss you?” she asked.

Snippet #14

“He’s not feeling well,” Clary said, catching at Simon’s wrist. “We’re going.”

“No,” Simon said. “No, I — I need to talk to him. To the Inquisitor.”

Robert reached into his jacket and drew out a crucifix. Clary stared in shock as he held it up between himself and Simon. “I speak to the Night’s Children Council representative, or to the head of the New York clan,” he said. “Not to any vampire who comes to knock at my door —“

Simon reached out and plucked the cross out of Robert’s hand. “Wrong religion,” he said.

Snippet #15 (Chapter Title)

Simon’s Sacrifice

Snippet #16

“Oh, God,” Magnus said. “They’re dead. They’re all dead.”

Snippet #17

A rune, hovering like an angel: a shape like two wings joined by a single bar

Snippet #18

“Clary,” Jocelyn said. “I want you to meet Tessa Gray.”

Snippet #19

The way Magnus’ breath had sounded, rattling in his chest, before he’d said his father’s name.

Snippet #20

Alec pulled his knees up to his chest and looked thoughtfully at Jace. “I know,” he said. “I’m not jealous. I always knew, from the first, that everyone thought you were better than me. My dad thought it. The Clave thought it. Izzy and Max looked up to you as the great warrior they wanted to be like. But the day you asked me to be your parabatai, I knew you meant that you trusted me enough to ask me to help you. You were telling me that you weren’t this lone and self-sufficient warrior able to do everything alone. You needed me. So I realized that there was one person who didn’t assume you were better than me. You.”

Snippet #21

Not much had changed at Magnus’s since the first time Jace had been there. Jace used an open rune to get through the front door and took the stairs, buzzing Magnus’s apartment bell. It was safer that way because Magnus could be playing video games naked or really anything. Magnus yanked the door open, looking furious. He was wearing a black silk dressing gown, his feet were bare, his dark hair was tangled, “What are you doing here?”

“My,” said Jace, “You’re so unwelcoming.”

“That’s because you’re not welcome.”

“I thought we were friends,” said Jace.

“No, you’re Alec’s friend, Alec was my boyfriend so I had to put up with you. But now he’s not my boyfriend so I don’t have to put up with you.”

“I think you should get back together with Alec,” said Jace.

Magnus looked at him, “And why is that?”

Snippet #22

parabatai. Like he was. And Jace knew, too, what that faded rune meant: a parabatai whose other half was dead. He felt his sympathy leap toward Brother Zachariah, as he imagined himself without Alec, with only that faded rune to remind him where once he had been bonded to someone who knew all the best and worst parts of his soul.

Snippet #23

“Did Brother Zachariah just steal our cat?”

Snippet #24

The Frays had never been a religiously observant family, but Clary loved Fifth Avenue at Christmas time. The air smelled like sweet roasted chestnuts, and the window displays sparkled with silver and blue, green and red. This year there were fat round crystal snowflakes attached to each lamppost, sending back the winter sunlight in shafts of gold[B1] . Not to mention the huge tree at Rockefeller Center. It threw its shadow across them as she and Simon draped themselves over the gate at the side of the skating rink, watching tourists fall down as they tried to navigate the ice.

Clary had a hot chocolate wrapped in her hands, the warmth spreading through her body. She felt almost normal—this, coming to Fifth to see the window displays and the tree, had been a winter tradition for her and Simon for as long as she could remember.

“Feels like old times, doesn’t it?” he said, echoing her thoughts as he propped his chin on his folded arms.

She chanced a sideways look at him. He was wearing a black topcoat and scarf that emphasized the winter pallor of his skin. His eyes were shadowed, indicating that he hadn’t fed on blood recently. He looked like what he was—a hungry, tired vampire.

Well, she thought. Almost like old times. “More people to buy presents for,” she said. “Plus, the always traumatic what-to-buy-someone-for-the-first-Christmas-after-you’ve-started-dating question.”

“What to get the Shadowhunter who has everything,” Simon said with a grin.

“Jace mostly likes weapons,” Clary sighed. “He likes books, but they have a huge library at the Institute. He likes classical music …” She brightened. Simon was a musician; even though his band was terrible, and was always changing their name—currently they were Lethal Soufflé—he did have training. “What would you give someone who likes to play the piano?”

“A piano.”


“A really huge metronome that could also double as a weapon?”

Clary sighed, exasperated.

“Sheet music. Rachmaninoff is tough stuff, but he likes a challenge.”

“Now you’re talking. I’m going to see if there’s a music store around here.” Clary, done with her hot chocolate, tossed the cup into a nearby trash can and pulled her phone out. “What about you? What are you giving Isabelle?”

“I have absolutely no idea,” Simon said. They had started heading toward the avenue, where a steady stream of pedestrians gawking at the windows clogged the streets.

“Oh, come on. Isabelle’s easy.”

“That’s my girlfriend you’re talking about.” Simon’s brows drew together. “I think. I’m not sure. We haven’t discussed it. The relationship, I mean.”

“You really have to DTR, Simon.”


“Define the relationship. What it is, where it’s going. Are you boyfriend and girlfriend, just having fun, ‘it’s complicated,’ or what? When’s she going to tell her parents? Are you allowed to see other people?”

Simon blanched. “What? Seriously?”

“Seriously. In the meantime—perfume!” Clary grabbed Simon by the back of his coat and hauled him into a cosmetics store that had once been a bank. It was massive on the inside, with rows of gleaming bottles everywhere. “And something unusual,” she said, heading for the fragrance area. “Isabelle isn’t going to want to smell like everyone else. She’s going to want to smell like figs, or vetiver, or—”

“Figs? Figs have a smell?” Simon looked horrified; Clary was about to laugh at him when her phone buzzed. It was her mother.

where are you? It’s an emergency.

Snippet #25

“Julian,” said Jia, in the same gentle voice, “would you do something for us? Would you take up the Mortal Sword?”

Clary sat up straight. She had held the Mortal Sword: she had felt the weight of it. The cold, like hooks in your skin, dragging the truth out of you. You couldn’t lie holding the Mortal Sword, but the truth, even a truth you wanted to tell, was agony.

“They can’t,” she whispered. “He’s just a kid —“

“He’s the oldest of the kids who escaped the Institute,” Jace said under his breath. “They don’t have a choice.”

Julian nodded, his thin shoulders straight. “I’ll take it.”

Robert Lightwood passed behind the podium then and went to the table. He took up the sword and returned to stand in front of Julian. The contrast between them was almost funny: the big, barrel-chested man and the lanky, wild-haired boy. 

Julian reached a hand up and took the sword. As his hand closed around the hilt, he shuddered, a ripple of pain that was quickly forced down. Emma, behind him, started forward, and Clary caught a glimpse of the look on her face — pure fury — before Helen caught at her and pulled her back.

Snippet #26

Julian’s skin was cold, as if he’d been leaning out the window into the night air. She turned his hand and drew with her finger on his bare forearm. It was something they’d done since they were small children and didn’t want to get caught talking during lessons. Over the years they’d gotten so good at it that they could map out detailed messages on each other’s hands, arms, even their shoulders through their T-shirts.

D-I-D Y-O-U E-A-T? she spelled out.

Julian shook his head, still staring at Livvy and Ty. His curls were sticking up in tufts as if he’d been raking his hands through his hair. She felt his fingers, light on her upper arm. N-O-T H-U-N-G-R-Y. 

Snippet #27


Idris had been green and gold and russet in the autumn, when Clary had first been there. It had a stark grandeur in the winter: the mountains rose in the distance, capped white with snow, and the trees along the side of the road that led back to Alicante from the lake were stripped bare, their leafless branches making lace-like patterns against the bright sky.

Sometimes Jace would slow the horse to point out the manor houses of the richer Shadowhunter families, hidden from the road when the trees were full but revealed now. She felt his shoulders tense as they passed one that nearly melded with the forest around it: it had clearly been burned and rebuilt. Some of the stones still bore the black marks of smoke and fire. “The Blackthorn manor,” he said. “Which means that around this bend in the road is …” He paused as Wayfarer summited a small hill, and reined him in so they could look down to where the road split in two. One direction led back toward Alicante — Clary could see the demon towers in the distance — while the other curled down toward a large building of mellow golden stone, surrounded by a low wall. “ … the Herondale manor,” Jace finished.

The wind picked up; icy, it ruffled Jace’s hair. Clary had her hood up, but he was bare-headed and bare-handed, having said he hated wearing gloves when horseback riding. He liked to feel the reins in his hands. “Did you want to go and look at it?” she asked.

His breath came out in a white cloud. “I’m not sure.”

Snippet #28

“And I suppose you know who Magnus’ father is?” Luke said.
“I paid a lot of money once to find it out,” Raphael said.

Snippet #29

“Everyone gets the time they get together, and no more. Maybe we’re not so different that way.”
— Alec

Snippet #30

“As if we’d have sex in a cave surrounded by hordes of demons. This is reality, not your fevered imagination.”
— Isabelle

Snippet #31

“I always thought I was happy being the dark star to your supernova. I mean, you have the angel’s gift. I could train and train…and I’d never be you.”

— Alec

Snippet #32

“Oh, good. For a second there I was worried there was going to be an actual plan with, like, steps we could follow.You know, something reassuring.”

— Isabelle

Snippet #33

“Tell the Queen what we want, and that if she does it, we will let her live.”

— Alec

Snippet #34

“I should warn you we’ll be making out in the dark. Big, sloppy make-outage.”

— Isabelle

  1. hahahaha i love this, always funny, cant wait for another. Cassandra inspired me to write my own book

    • Alecis(Alexis) says:

      OMG me too.!!!

    • clarissamorgenstern says:

      me too… actually, I was writing before, but TMI gave me inspiration to go on… it’s nearly finished now, and all congrats goes to Cassie!

      • Mrs.SebastianVerlac(Jonathan Christopher Moranstern) says:

        JACE DIES IN CoHF go on goodreads and look up the dark artifices and read the description it says emma carstairs wanted to be the best shadowhunter SINCE JACE LIGHTWOOD THAT MEANS HE DIES!!!!!!!!!!!!
        *sobbingveryhardandhatinglifesreamigandshoutinglifehasnopointthensayingitsnitfairhewasthebeatwellsecondbestguyinthebooks(ilovesebastian((okayshootmeifyouwantto))morethanjace)* but its not fair I am positive that jace dies and sompeople say he got old and died but what was the first sentence in the description say ” 5 years after the mortal war” that means that he couldent have been older than 23 years old poor clary she loved him so much and its not fair for her why Cassandra clare why???????????? at least Sebastian doesn’t die( even though jace probably died tring to kill him ) but I still have a thing for bad boys
        first Will than Jace its not fair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! why not Jem(yuck) and alec die I would cry for alec but not as hard as im going to 4 jace it is not fair

        sorry I needed to vent because I read that description like 5 minits ago and I am balling my eyes out

        can it take any longer to be may 27


        Don’t torture yourself like that! Jace is NOT going to die! He can’t, Cassie Clare isn’t that much of a sadist (im looking at you Veronica Roth). And if he does he’ll probably come back Jessamine style in TDA.

      • TMI4eves says:

        I’m gonna cry soooo hard when Jace dies. We to face the facts he is just too awesome of a shadow hunter to live. But maybe Cassie wants us to think he is going to die when he won’t idk just can’t wait for May 27 omg

      • “Since jace” could also mean that jace IS a great shadowhunter because he is over 18 but emma is the most promising shadowhunter because she is not yet 18 and not a full shadowhunter

      • Guys he’s obviously not gonna die. Besides, he could just get badly hurt and isn’t a good shadowhunter anymore or maybe he quit because he didn’t want to deal with it just wanted to be with Clary. Maybe he left and went all remote and no one knows where he is. Maybe his heavenly due problem prevents him from fighting some how. Lots of reasons.

      • Slash 5 says:

        Good luck with your book, i hope you finish it!

      • Jace isn’t going to die, don’t worry your pretty little heads about that, he’ll be better than fine… hint, hint *wink* *wink* ;)) the “since jace” just means that he was the best – still is – but since he’s older emma’s gonna be the best since she’s how old he was.

    • i’ll be the first one to read it miss rachel

    • writing has been my ultimate dream for so long…cassandra Claire just made me believe its possible! <3 i heart the mortal instruments and infernal devices :)

      • awww well follow your dreams i will be hoping to read your books someday

      • I think she should really go and make a nother or at least a where are they nw cause we want to kno about there lifes jace and clary there children! it’s so funstrating trying to imagin what might happen next I mean DO the KIDS look like JACE or CLARY? do they have jaces silvery gold lion hair or clarys and her moms eyes GREEN, and the red firelike hair!? WE will never no seb. deserves to die jon. he shold have lived.

    • Tess Anneliese says:

      ME TOO! I just can’t. I tried. I couldn’t even come up with a plot…..

    • OMG guys!!!! There’s a girl who’s admiring Sebastian!!!! It’s a dream come true. So I have this fantasy: Sebastian will fall in love with a girl (I named her Camryn and she has black hair and green eyes) and then at the end Jocelyn will learn to love him, so he’ll learn the error of his ways, but he’ll somehow turn into an angel like thing. All of this probably won’t happen but I re-live this fantasy EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! So PLEASE Ms. Clare, please give me the time of day by making this happen!!!! Whenever I fall in love with series, the last book ALWAYS makes me depressed. So PLEASE give Sebastian a happy ending, and DON’T kill of him, Alec, Magnus, Simon or Isabelle. (These 5 are my favourites!!!)

      • Alex Pettyfer would make an AMAZING Sebastian. Before, I wanted him to be Jace, but since someone else is…
        OMG… Michael Seater would be an awesome Sebastian as well!!! And Selena Gomez could be my fantasy Camryn that I made up for Sebastian!!!

      • Who is Camryn? Can you sent me the link or tell me about her?

      • Abigail says:

        The only reason Alex Pettyfer isn’t Jace is because he told the press that he would no longer be acting in movies based on YA books. He’s doing stuff like Magic Mike now. *disappointment*

      • Tessydoesitallinacorset says:

        I know…a bit confusing and..just…wow…Who is this mysterious girl?? At first I was like…CLARY??? But then I’m like…No…That can’t POSSABLY happen! I don’t want the whole Sebastian liking-his-own-sister thing…Especially is Clary starts liking the idea o.o That would be…barftastic..I at first wanted simon and clary but..Now since that ISNT going to happen i’m liking simabelle ‘-‘ (izzy and simon :3) Cassie has a way of twisting my emotions..

      • The mystery girl is probably the Seelie Queen. I think. =)

      • I think that the mystery girl is maureen

      • I’m sorry but am I the only one that wanted to kill Sebastian in his sleep 50 times during the books?

      • mehak jasrai says:

        I too root for Sebastian. I wish he has a happy ending. He is not bad. Love can turn him good. True love. Sometimes I think he will die a heroic death in the end…saving others but then I dnt want him to die. I am Team will and have never taken a liking to jace. I hate him. I’m a hardcore tid fan. I love jem tessa and will so much. I hope 2 see tessa in cohf

      • Sebastian needs to die in my opinion

      • I agree I want sebesation to be happy. I was rooting for him in the last book. Seelie Queen is my guess also.

      • Willherondaleisawesome says:

        okey so clearly there is a disconnect here….

        Um… no offense I really hate Sebastian with a burning passion so…

      • Book lover xx says:

        I think that Sebastian / jonathon needs to die ! Because there is no way that if he somehow become good or something like that jace will kill him anyway and there is no way that the clave would trust him also I think that he will die because it’s the last book so if you think about it he needs to die for the books to finish . I hate Sebastian btw he is evil !

      • Maybe I am a bit crazy but…
        I love Sebestian, ya I know he did reall bad stuff and so on, but his charakter is full of so much potential!
        At first in COG he was just the weapon of Valentin…
        Now we can see in COLS what a creepy guy Sebestian really is…

        I am really thinking about who could be the girl who will fall in love with him?

        Maureen?Or ..Clary??(NEVER!)

        so I am soooooo excitet I CAN NOT WAIT ANYMORE I really want to find it out

      • I had this insane idea that it could be Maureen that is falling for Sebastian…

      • tessa herondale says:

        If you have read the infernal devices (which i have and own all of the books hardcover + collector’s edition) then you should obviously know who tessa gray is. Tessa lived almost two hundreds years ago and is immortal. she fought against the infernal devices by mortmain and married will herondale, ancestor of jace and saw the london’s head (charlotte fairchild) as her mother (clary’s ancestor). she and jem carstairs were almost married until he became a silent brother (brother zachariah) and turned immortal. and also because tess already married and had children with will. but then because will wasnt immortal, he died and tessa decided to travel the world with jem. DUH. Read the books b4 you ask questions.

      • Am I the only one that notices the similarities between two of the snippets? Hello! he mystery girl is Clary. And that not liking it’s observing.

      • Wow everyone’s talking about sabastian personally I REALLY want to know how clary and jace are getting on. I love what they have together, kind of makes me jelous!!

      • Because, Rachel, Jace and Clary have their relationship all amazing like now, and everyone always wants the bad guy to suddenly become good, see the error in their ways, and find love, so it will end with a happy ending for most of the characters, since a lot will die. Kay. Honestly, I was Sebastian to burn in Hell, but he wouldn’t suffer there. He’d be happy. So god knows where he’ll end up.

      • Hey go on wattpad and search living with Jonathan morgenstern (is that how you spell it) it’s the one with a couple kissing but there’s a black line on the girls face it’s really good and it goes with ur thought

      • Mrs.AlexPettyfer says:

        omg love alex pettyfer but im kinnda glad he is nt playing jace because jace dies( look up the dark artifices and read description 4 book 1)8( he would do a lot better playing Sebastian because he is in the dark artifices but

      • Luvbooks says:

        I’m sorry, but seriously, i dont think thats gonna happen…every story needs a bad guy, and in this one its sebastian – hes gonna stay how he is, i think. If not that would be totally awesome but i think sebastian is the coolest bad guy! well done cassie

      • Mrs.SimonLewis says:

        THANK YOU! I thought i was the only one who thinks that whole bad boy thing is hot. don’t get me wrong i love Simon till the day i die.

      • I am a negative person, sorry says:

        She already has the whole book written… the books are in print… maybe you can write some fanfiction. :p

      • did u guys read this part in city of lost souls when sebastian wanted to have sex with clary!!! what kind of brother tries to have sex with his sister just because he knew jace and clary still were in love with each other even if they tought they were brothers and sister. that is just a nasty piece of crap, i also kind of want jace to know about that. no offense. oh and p.s alex and simon dies

    • “Isabelle tugged her tank top back down and glared at her brother. “You don’t knock now?”
      “It’s my bedroom!” Alec spluttered
      OMG… sooooo funny!!!! Alec and Isabelle are just adorable!!!! I can see how they’re related!!!

      • Camryn isn’t a real character… I made her up just 4 Sebastian!!! (He desperately needs a girlfriend!!!)

      • My love for this series comes a lot from the humor! I laugh so much when I read cassie’s books!! These sip-bits MAKE ME WANT IT MORE!!! UGH!! It makes me all like “HULK SMASH COMPUTER!!!” ‘-‘ But that’s just me..

      • Oh my god one of the chapter title is Simon’s sacrifice and there is one picture that said ‘your boyfriend’s dead by the way’. Please do not let it be Simon who dies!!! I love Simon and isabelle they are like the prefect couple in there!! If Simon or isabelle dies it will ruin the story book for me !!

      • ikr

      • Clary Fray says:

        OMG If Jace or simon or clary or magnus or isabelle or alec die i’m gonna burn the books!!!! (Not really…but I will be mad at Cassandra Clare for a while)

      • WillHerondale says:

        but who is the guy who is kissing her because in the visual snippet there is a guy there but who is it!?!?

    • Krystle Herondale says:

      Me x100 :)

    • terri hayes says:

      omg!!!! i cant wait!!

    • i can’t wait! ps have you guys read the new short stories they are called the Bane Chronicles! They are super cool.They are all about Magnus. There are different ones like…… What really happened in Peru and The runaway queen and….. Vampires,scones,and Edmund Herondale. Those are the ones that are out but there are lots that are coming out like….The course of true love and the rise of hotel dumort. I love them check them out!

      • I need to read the bane chronicles!
        I sooo need to know what happened in peru

    • I know it’s stupid, but I don’t want Jem to be with Tessa in CoHF or even after that. All I can think about is WIll and how slutty Tessa will seem to be. I mean honestly, marrying Will claiming that you’re in love with him, then years and years later, slutting it with his best friend? Ugghh I would never read another Clare book. Sure Will is now dead and Tessa & Jem deserve their happiness, blah blah blah. It doesn’t matter to me. Tessa should know better than that. So PLEASE DO NOT turn Tessa into a slut!!! (I don’t mean 2 b rude)

      • sheilathethongbarbarino says:

        I sooooo agree with you!

      • WithTheBlueEyes says:

        The whole point of the the love triangle in TID was that they all loved each other great amounts. Tessa isn’t slutting around, not at all. Will has been dead for over fifty years when she and Jem get together at the end of CP2. She still wears the bracelet he gave her for their 30th anniversary. If it were anyone other than Jem, she probably wouldn’t have moved on for many, many more years after that. Jem and Will also understood that they both loved the same girl very very much and they love each other enough to want the other to be happy. If it were anyone other than Jem, Will probably wouldn’t be overjoyed, but he wouldn’t begrudge an Immortal Tessa happiness when he was gone. However, BECAUSE it is Jem, Will is probably their biggest supporter. He can’t love Tessa anymore, but Jem CAN. Will probably even looks at the over 50 years that Tessa spent alone as wasted time that she spent lonely and unhappy. They all love each other a great deal and want each other to be happy. It’s not a matter of slutting in anyway. Tessa is faithful and loving to both the men she has loved in her life, a life that was able to accommodate both of them at two very different times. TL;DR–Tessa isn’t a slut. She loves Will. She loves Jem. Will and Jem love her. Will and Jem love each other. Will isn’t being betrayed; Tessa is finding love with the one person Will loves and trusts completely aside from Tessa and Will couldn’t approve more. Will looks upon Jem and Tessa from whatever afterlife he’s waiting for Jem in and smiles the brightest he can because the two people he loved most in the world are now happy together. Tessa. Is. Not. A. Slut.

      • People who remarry after the passing of their spouse are not “sluts”.

      • My grandmother remarried after her first husband died. Does that make her a “slut” as you say?

      • I totally agree with WithBlueEyes. She ended up with both of them cuz they both love her a ton, and that’s exactly how it should be.

      • In all fairness tessa was with Jem before will, and I do get what ur saying and where ur coming from. But like it explains in the book tessa’s in love with both of them and if she didn’t love one of them she wouldn’t love the other!!! And I think it would make it a bit more fair if she was with Jem now, and it’s not like she doesn’t still love will. Like when she was with will she didn’t stop loving Jem!!!! But I do understand what u mean. Just saying

      • umm mmm no. The emotions are way different than that. That’s just like a widower getting a new husband. Why leave her to suffer alone the rest of her life?

        (spoiler for Clockwork Princess)

        And yes they do end up together, if you read Clockwork Princess….

      • I know right? In my fantasies Tessa decides to turn into a human and outlive Will for long…but dies. And Jem finds this out after he becomes a human being. So he tells Magnus, “I’ll take the cure to be a better Silent Brother”. LOL

      • TessaJem&Will4ever says:

        You’re crazy Taryn. Their trio is heavenly. They love each other so much that they can share each other. Perhaps it’s hard for the simpleminded to understand such love. Tessa is not a slut because she loves two boys equally. I person may have more that one soul mate. It’s just 1/ 100 to find even one in one lifetime. She was lucky to find too. Actually, I think Jem and Will were also each others’ soul mates. Trios are not a bad thing. It means people can love more than one person with the same passion and that’s wonderful.


        i don’t want tessa to be with jem either, i think in city of heavenly fire Will should come back through a time portal. TEAM WILL HERONDALE ALL THE WAY

      • J Herondale says:

        Everybody is all like trying to explain to you. I dont Want to do that, cause if you didnt get TID Then you are just dumb, yes u Said that. So im just going to Go for the good old fangirl solution. I Call you a mundie and Then you read the books again cause i force you to do it and Then you get it. :D There, Wasnt that better? ^^

      • Did you miss the part where Tessa has been in love with both Will & Jem at the same exact time & torn between the two? I loved how that was resolved by her being able to marry them both…

      • Bex Fairchild says:

        Ugh.. Tessa and Will loved each other. Tessa still loves Will and loves Jem. Jen will take care of her like Will would’ve if he was still alive…

      • Tessa gray says:

        Tessa gray is not a slut !!!!! Jem and tessa belong together !!! she loved both will and jem !!!! But will dies ( :( poor will ) !! Tessa also loved jem so it makes sence she can’t be with will even if she wanted to becouse will is dead so jem is the only one she can be with because she LOVES jem !! And its not like she didn’t also love will if you had read the books properly she cried out every night for will and Magnus bane had to comfort her !!!! so she loves both and I think she should be with jem !!! Because I also love jem !! he is sweet and kind ahhh I just love jem and tessa jess a all they way ( I did love wessa to :( ) so to sum up tessa gray is sooooo not a slut and if u think so u obviously have not read the books. Properly !!! Sorry if that comes off rude but ….. I just wanted to get my point across

      • Hight Warlock of Oakey says:

        …. WTF IS WRONG WITH U???? U THINK TESSA’S A SLUT??? well my friend u are wrong!!!!!!!!!!! Tessa is a very strong lucky woman who has the fortune of having two great loves in her life ( quoted Woosley Scott) A.K.A WIILIAM HERONDALE AND JAMES CARSTAIRES… I love her she is one of my three fav charactors in BOTH TMI and TID along will Magnus and Jem… with Alec and Henry not close behind anyway back the point. u really need to see this from her point of view if u were in love with two amazing boys one a dying young romantic, the other a locked up poet… both amazing and in love… u lovr them both very much… Jem proposes and u say yes but ur longing form WIll is getting stronger.. he confesses and gives u an ultimatum marry me and leave Jem or go back to being not-so-nice friends…. u choose to stay with him…. but when u are told the man u will marry is dead… ur other lover is tnher and things happen… hes alive but not the same….. u can not be with him… in over a year u marry Will and Jem gives u his blessing…. 133 years later u find ur first love again…. u don’t get married straight away, u travel the world and reconnect… AND THATS HPW U SHULD SE IT SHE ANT O SLUT SHE IS AMAZBALLS!!!!

      • I was also very upset with this. I thought she should just end the story with will and Tessa’s happy ending not him dying and her going to another guy. But I also believe that jem is a very sweet guy who loves her and he deserves his happy ending too

      • No offense, but your comment is really stupid, because the point of Cassandra’s Infernal devices series was about the real love triangle between Will, Tessa, and Jem. Tess and Jem had to wait 100 and some years to get together even after she loved Will a much as she loved Jem. Please don’t be so hard head and try to be open minded. Not everything is about being a slut or loving Will.

      • Not ten years…… 180

      • Will died like 100 yrs. ago. It’s time she’s happy again. That doesn’t make her a slut. If that was the case, then Magnus would be a whore. I’m pretty sure he wants her to be happy as well. And also Will would probably want for Jem to be happy with her since he loved her too. They were even engaged. That wouldn’t make her a slut. Also, wouldn’t that make Jocelyn a slut too, since she’s getting married with Luke, and Luke and Valentine were once close friends. You should think. Everyone deserves another chance to be happy.

      • Tessa fell in love with two people, but only one soul. If that’s not beautiful to you then there’s clearly something wrong with you.

      • okay I don’t remember exactly when this came out, but it was a snippet from the bane chronicles (the last stand of the new york institute) and it was talking about tessa from Magnus’ POV and tessa was wearing a shirt that had the name william on it and pretty much at the end of the snippet it said that after all these years she hadn’t let anyone even come close to winning her heart.. so don’t know what that means but i am perfectly okay with it- so i don’t think she’s a slut, cause what about magnus? tons of his lovers have died and yet he finds others…

      • I think that Tessa deserves happiness, Will and Jem essentially support each other and her by making her happy.
        I think it would be good for their storyline if they both got the chance to have their time together.

        After the hell the two of them went through for her, and she for them, they all deserve to be happy.

        ‘Nuff said.

      • I.LOVE.YOU.WILL.H says:

        Oh my god cannot agree more. I hated how Clare ended TIF. It just makes Tessa (the amazing character she is) seem so blarggg

      • Michele says:

        You do realize that over a decade and a half has passed since Tessa and Will were together right?

      • IHayteYou101 says:

        Excuse me sir, Tessa is not a slut. Will wanted them to be together.

    • Tessydoesitallinacorset says:

      I know same! And this… “Okayyyyy,” Isabelle said in a low voice, “When did Brother Zachariah get hot?”
      XD!! Laughing and JEM!!! OMG!!! YAY! I was hoping Cassie would bring Jessa (Jem and Tessa…Yes I know i’m obsessed..) into CHF but now that it’s assured…o.o I am DYING!! EEK! I love Cassies sence of humor and am stoked for the next book in this wonderful series! Hopefully the movie lives up to my expectations..

      • Yes……………. I am officially dead :) <3 My family was so confused when I fell out of my chair and started screaming… :)

      • I’m not saying that about Tessa because she’s with someone else after her marrirage! (I seriously need to learn how to put my thoughts into words.) I’m sooo sorry if I offended any of you. What I meant was, that it’s so stupid how the only reason that Tessa even ended up with Will was because Jem became a Silent Brother. Who knows what would’ve happened if Jem didn’t start to die at that time, and what not. And now that Will’s dead and Jem obviously won’t be a Silent Brother anymore… WHAM she’s now with Jem. I just find the situation messed up. I mean a lot of authors do that. They either kill off one of the guys, or the girl just chooses. But here? No choosing. Again, sorry if I offended any of you, I clearly didn’t think about my words before typing them. I hope you sort of see my point of view though. There’s also the fact that I’m much too in love with Will, so it’s probably clouding my judgement. I mean… I cried when I read the epilogue in CP2. It just tore my heart when Tessa talked about Will’s death. (So many strong emotions from books, it’s ridiculous)

      • I absolutely LOVE Jem and Tessa together! They are such a cute couple <3

      • Tessydoesitallinacorset says:

        Okay, yes, I did love Will, but Jem rigthtfully proposed and even though Tessa’s heart hurt after Will continually was rude to her.. I understood it was because of the curse..But, Jem was kind and understanding the entire time. Will then suggests, “Well.. Jem will forgive me! Let’s go makeout even though your engaged! *wink, wink* ”
        I mean, honestly.
        My heart broke and I almost cried in the epilogue when Will died, and even though I was a Jemma fan, I didn’t go “WOO!!! HE’S DEAD!! >:D “.
        The only reason Cassie gave Tessa lives with both men, was to appese both fan groups.
        ~Love, Tessydoesitallinacorset

      • MightyTangerine says:

        Snippet #18: “Clary,” Jocelyn said. “I want you to meet Tessa Gray.”
        Snippet #22: A parabatai. Like he was. And Jace knew, too, what that faded rune meant: a parabatai whose other half was dead. He felt his sympathy leap toward Brother Zachariah, as he imagined himself without Alec, with only that faded rune to remind him where once he had been bonded to someone who knew all the best and worst parts of his soul.

        Visual snippet #1.

        I just. Can’t.


      • Audrey Herondale says:

        Firtsly, omg I LOVE your username! Cassie has such an amazing sense of humor! I can’t wait until coHF is released!

    • Me too, my friends say it’s really good, well i hope it’s good

    • J Herondale says:

      Guess she inspired alot of people, including me! :D

    • is that Magnus and Alec in the first picture

    • same. omg. authors inspire me to write but when i do i always fear its too similar to the books im reading!

    • I alwasy start something and never finish :P

    • Same!

    • Daisy Mellark Herondale says:

      Well Simon is dead. Izzy is dead. Any other guesses? We can probably throw jace in because I bet Alex is talking to a dead body.

      Cleary is being mind controlled by Jonathan up there.

      The only happy thing up there is that MALEC IS BACK. WHOOP WHOOP!

      • Why does every one underestimate Sebastian he is super hot (hotter than jace BTW) and she was with jace ( well not with him but…..) when she thought he was her brother so why not with Sebastian he could totally be with clary,its just she cant look past the reason that he has done bad things

      • Abigail, ok eew! She wasn’t WITH Jace when they thought they were brother and sister. In fact they had to stop themselves and Jace told her to go away. What your suggesting is really weird in a modern day society. Seriously gross!

        I really hope Simon doesn’t die… :( I live izzy & Simon and Alec & Magnus so much!!!

    • Did anyone notice that Clary is wearing WHITE on the cover of CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE? SHADOWHUNTERS MOURNE IN WHITE!

    • If clary or jace dies i will be so mad

    • Same lol craazy!

      read the description for the first book in the dark artifices) 3 main and 3 minor charecters
      not sebastan

    • I did one two. Is your on wattpad or online? what’s it called.

    • Taylah :D says:

      im only a 14 yr old girl & i have already had HEAPS of i deas for a series of books some what between percy jackson & the mortal instruments but im not sure if i want to or even can write a book. but in my spear time i try. this is all because of Cassandra clear, i LOVE her books, their is no flaw in her imagination!

    • julian blackthorn mine says:

      omg i cant believe all this stuff is gonna happen wait is there a possibility that simon dies cuz i really cant have that happen to him :( he too cute

    • Yes,omigod me too!!!!!!!!!! I have been trying to write a book for so long,all thanks to Cassie Clare she is my inspiration and idol! She can write better than an entire alliance of authors! She makes thing so vivid and real I do not FEEL like I am there,I KNOW I am there. I would follow Cassandra Clare to the ends of the earth. Her writing is so real it is like her sources come from heaven and hell themselves. I used to hate writing and reading but ever since I have read books by Cassie Clare I can never take my face out of a book. No lie here when i get into trouble my mother takes away my books and I cry heartbroken. My love of literature is purely thanks to Cassandra Clare.

    • did you know Cassandra made another book dark artifices / lady midnight .

    • Cassandra I love your books ,can’t wait for your new books Lady Midnight, The Prince of Shadows, and The Queen of Air and Darkness. : )

  2. I love the mortal instruments so much!
    I can’t believe i have to wait until 2014 for the next book.

  3. Hey Katrina! The book is coming out in 2013 just so you know!
    And I love this!!!

  4. I cant wait for this book to come out. I love the TMI series way too much.

  5. didnt she say something about alec having an alcohol problem on her tumblr..?

  6. i heard she is going to kill off one of the main characters i am freaking out!!

    • I hope it’s not Jace, Clary, Simon, Isabelle or Magnus. I don’t know why but I have a feeling that both Sebestian (Jonathon) and Alec will die

      • I have feeling it will be either Alec or Magnus of the main characters who dies. They’re my two favorites and all my favorite characters always die. Also I’m pretty sure Sebastian will die as well.

      • Ria Jace Herondale says:

        I’m really scared that it might be Jace, because for TDA, in the description for Emma Carstairs she wrote something about her being the strongest shadowhunter SINCE Jace Lightwood.
        I REALLY HOPE Jace DOESN’T die because he is my FAVOURITE character from ALL the books I’ve read, and if ANYTHING happens to him, I will be CRUSHED!

        I <3 JACE! :D

      • Well, we have reasoinable reasons to believe that it won;t be Clary or Jace – 1 because they are th main main characters, and 2 because Cassie has mentioned them appearing briefly possibly in TDA

      • if its simon i think im going to cry , simon and isabelle are so cute <3 but i think t would also make sense since simon doesnt want to remain a vampire forever :( so he might die

      • omg dont say that im going to cry and sebastian will die definately if jace gets ahold of him when he’s not possessed

      • Poppy (lol fake name) Herondale says:

        Simon’s probably gonna die

      • It can’t be Magnus who dies, he’s been through so much and I was hoping for him to be in the sequel!

    • WHAT?!?!?! Noooooo. Please don’t say that. Even if its a might. :O

    • CatalinaDee says:

      she has said that at least one of the main characters will die. my friends and i have a bet, i say magnus is gonna die saving alec :(

      • CatalinaDee says:

        although i agree with Ria, that ‘since’ has been killing the entire fandom from the time the blurb was published. and as TDA is set only a few months/years after TMI, he cant die of old age

      • Well, I have 3 theories: One being that Alec dies saving Magnus, which makes Magnus feel horrible for breaking up with him and realizes he had been loyal the whole time. #2 is that Isabelle dies, but is killed by a vamp and becomes one after her death so she and simon can be together forever.
        #3: Alec is killed by a vamp and becomes a bloodsucker and now he and Magnus can be together forever.

    • Krystle Herondale says:

      I really hope its not anyone I love but I have a feeling Simon is going to die…

    • J Herondale says:

      She Said 6 characters we know by name (it tried to write bane xD Mah phone loooooves Magnus! xD) is going to die! Dx

      • Umm I heard that Magnus gets back with Alec, then magnus gives his immortality to Isabelle so she can be with Simon. I hope Alec or Magnus don’t die! They’re my favourite characters, but im going to be so sad no matter what! Why do we have to wait so long!

    • She is :(:(:(:(:(:(: A Male dies for a female only one that i will accept is Jonathan/Sebastien dying for someone

    • Ivy Hawkins says:

      I actually read one of her post that 6 characters we know my name are gonna die and 4 main!!! :'( :( :((

  7. Awesome! The series inspired my story too and i think simon may go eventually… ><! Hi!

  8. wht do u think the cover of the book will be?

    • It would make sense if all the major characters were on there since this is the last book, and it’s a standoff between angels and demons. (main characters being Sebastian, Izzy, Alec, Simon, Magnus, Jace and Clary)

  9. I have to wait untill 2014 ._. are you kidding me.

  10. I rilley love this series i hope the move goes with the it i am rilly looking forward in seeing what happens on the series an how the move.

  11. HHaha Soo excited for the end of the books but really sad to.:( cant believe that this is the last book

  12. OMG I am killing myself wondering who the cover is going to be!!!
    I hope it’s only one person… =)


      • Honestly, i’m kind of hoping for Magnus – I mean come on, he has been in every single last one of her books to date, and yet still has not gotten his own cover… :( Although, I get why he hasn’t, i don’t see why he shouldn’t.

      • I think it would be awesome if City of Heavenly Fire had Jace, Clary and Sebastian on the cover. It might be just me, but I think it would be the perfect way to end the series.

      • Krystle Herondale says:

        I totally agree!!!! We have had everyone else (except Magnus- but he gets to be on the front cover of everyone of the BANE chronicles so that doesn’t count!!!) so bring on Izzy!!

      • i hope the cover is Isabelle too!

      • Archie Bunney says:

        all main characters and Joscelyn because she’s a badass

  13. P.S. I hope that nothing goes pear shaped to badly.
    Because that would suck.

  14. Im…. rilley going to have fun with this book.cant wait

  15. Oh god 2014!!

  16. I just realised that I will be 15 or 16 when it comes out. I’m going to be all old and mature (probably not actually) and stuff.

    • Yeah in 2014 I’ll be 13! That seems so crazy!

      • I know right!
        I’m 12 now and my birthday is in march so I’ll be 14!


      • You’re only 11?!?!

      • I’m 11 too and yeah I’ve read #5

      • Alison says:

        11? Pfft, that’s nothing. I’m 10 and I’ve read all of TMI all of TID, and what really happened in peru. I started reading them when I was 9. So.. yeah.

    • im going to be 18 by then!! :O ahhh, who cares, i seriously really enjoy reading, especially Cassie’s books, so i wont care:D

      • haha sing it denise :)

      • Undecided says:

        I’ll be 19 and I’m not giving up Cassie.

      • I’ll be 17, and it’s coming out near my birthday! I’m so excited yet so sad it’s ending soon :(

      • Same! I’ll be 18 and graduating 3 months afterwards :) I can’t believe its coming out in a little over a year…. 2014 needs to come faster

      • I’m gonna be 16 when this book comes. Holy crap! I’ll be able to drive myself to the bookstore to buy this the very day it comes out instead of relying on my mom to bring me! :)

      • I’ll be 15! awwwwwwwwwwwwww…… I can’t believe it’s going to be over so soon!!!! Can’t wait for Lady Midnight(possible title for first book in TDA)!!

      • Haha I’m going to be 19 by the last book but there is just no outgrowing TMI! Will be waiting in line for the books and films just like every other fangirl :P

      • Haha its okay: I’m 23 and I love them! I’ll read a shadowhunter book no matter how old I get :)

      • Oh boy do I feel old I’m 25. I got in to this series a few months before the movie for CoB was beginning to be promoted. Now I’ve read everything. I feel as I have been speeding through this fandom trying to get caught up, and now that I have I’m at the same stop light as every one else, and we’re all waiting for the light to change.

      • am gonna be 18 too, i read all the 5 books in 1 weekend n cant believe am gonna have to wait almost a year 4 the next 1, really hoping that simon doesn’t die n thinking that magnus will be the one that dies

    • Really, i’m the same age….. the same exact name too :P

      • I will be 12. I started reading these books about a month before I turned 12. I was 11 when I finished #5 of TMI. I started TID right after my 12th birthday. I love Victorian England!

    • I’m going to be 14 because i have birthday in december
      I began reading this book When i was 12

      • I will be 14 too 2 days after City Of Heavenly Fire Comes out. AHHHHHH!!!!! I am so Geeked! I don’t know if I can wait that long

      • I started reading them this year, but I really wish I’d read them sooner! They are my absolute favourite series! You will never outgrow TMI.

      • Crystal L. Price says:

        BTW For anyone who doesn’t know, it comes out May 27, 2014.

    • Valentina says:

      Don’t worry I’m going to be 17 and will still reread these books over and over when I am all adult. They’re just too good.

    • I’ll be 16 too. SCARY. i hope i still like the series and dnt get all mature…

      • dont worry about that, i am 42, and i read the books 5 times already. there is no age limit on fantasy………

  17. Oh Jace, I cant wait until i’m 16 to find out what happens to you! its too long for us to be apart!

  18. Tmiworship says:

    Oh God. She’s gonna kill off Simon and I’m gonna die. Or Magnus. But if Magnus dies Alec will die too. And that screws up Isabelle and Jace too much. So it’s Simon. :( It’s always my favorites who die. NOOOOOOO! But nevertheless, I can’t wait for 2014. At least there will be Clockwork Princess to tide u over.

    • CatalinaDee says:

      clockwork princess killed me. i cried :'(

      • dgamer222 says:

        I know me too!!!!!!!

      • A little peice of my soul went away when I finished Clockwork Princess HEAR THAT CASSIE! YOU MADE THE BOOK A HORCRUX!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Hight Warlock of Oakey says:

        I didn’t just cry I literal through my book at the end and cried for a good 10 mins until I got to the right page and continued readi

    • Well if she kills Simon then it’s gonna hurt clary and isabelle and Simons sister. Isabelle being depressed would worry Alex, and clary being depressed would depress jace. It’s all working like dominoes. The death of a single character will bring pain to loads of characters and of course the heart broken fans, so I guess we all better prepare ourselves for major heartache.

    • Honestly, I don’t mind if Alec or Magnus dies. Of course, I’d prefer if they didn’t, but I really care for Clary and Jace the most. They are the most important for the story. They have created the whole story. Tessa, Jem, and Will as well. I don’t want Simon or Isabelle to die either. (BTW, did you see the picture of Simon and Izzy making out?! What I thought was creepy was that Clary and Jace were making out. Fire everywhere! You guys have to realize that right below the picture with that blond girl, it says 12 year-old Emma. It’s some Emma girl. Wonder who that is.

  19. Cant wait.. Wishing Cassandra Clare will so some mercy and give us the book sooner!! One can only dream tho.. Also for all the kids saying they are going to be 14,15,or16 when the next book comes out.. Im going to be 20 and it makes my day to know kids your age enjoy reading!!! You all rock it kills me to wait this long!

  20. Ana Uthor says:

    I look at the “29 comments” on this page and then the almost 1500 on CP2. Signs of things to come…

  21. KikilovesJace says:

    I hope alec and magnus get back together! i
    I was so heartbroken when they’ve broken up. :'( I hope Isabelle tells simon that she loves him too! And I wonder what will happen to jace now that he has heavenly fire inside of him! Oh! So much stuff! I can’t wait until city of heavenly fire come out! Cassandra clare have mercy on you’re fans who are truly dying inside to have the book in our hands!


  23. Magnus is the shit!
    He’s like the ultimate hero!!
    Looooooove him!!!
    Can’t wait for the book just cos I love him!
    Forget about team Jace
    Team Magnus!!!!!

  24. Jace, you can make every thing better.

  25. just wondering, but which couple are all of you intrigued by the most. because there is clary and jace as sort of saving the world main characters. then there is magnus and alec who are having trouble in relationship and a lot of people think will be killed off. and then there is simon and isabelle, with the whole isabelle opening up and needing simon and the difficulty of simon being imortal. i find personally the simon and isabelle relationship quite interesting currently but there is still another book. is it just me? thats all i’m asking :)

    • I don’t think she will kill another Lightwood child. Also the cover of the book is something like ” Will love be their distraction or salvation” sadly it doesn’t have people on it.

    • Jace Herondale says:

      I like jorden and maia thats a cute couple i cant wait for the 6th book. ill be 15 and its gonna be awesome i cant wait for the movie!!!

    • simon and isabelle’s relationship is the hottest to me really hope it goes well

      • tmilove says:

        My only problem with snippet of Izzy in Alecs room is that that guy is obviously not Simon, Simon has dark hair guys…

    • Crystal L. Price says:

      Clace is the most intriguing. I want to know how Jace copes with the heavenly fire.

  26. Gotta love Ms.Clare! I got funny looks for laughing on the bus. I really hope Alec and Magnus get back together again!!!

  27. I don’t think Sebastian is going to die. Just because Cassie has a way of always surprising us with outrageous endings. I thought maybe the person to die would be Luke, but then he got hurt and was ok. So then it would just be a repeat sort of. So now I think it will be Magnus or we’ll meet another character who might become huge and die. Like Tessa. She was in City of Glass.

    • What!? I don’t remember Tessa being in the city of glass. I thought she was only in the Infernal Devices. and I don’t remember Tessa ever dying. :S

    • Tessa was not in city of glass, was she??

      • OMG.t.i.d.fanForever11-12 says:

        She was at the end of the book,at the party talking to Magnus (the girl with the white dress)

      • Yeah! I didn’t know she was that girl, but apparently she is, although I don’t see how you would know that it was her.

      • Oh yeah, I’ve just read that part. Thanks for telling me, by the way. Oh but, how do you know that it’s Tessa. I mean it is Tessa, but it doesn’t say that, basically I want to know how you knew when you read that part of the book, that it was Tessa?

  28. Trynity:)! says:

    This completely sucks I have to wait till 2014 for this book and I finished book 5 in august:( But I absolutely love this series!!!!

  29. OMG these comments are sooooo Jace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can just picture Jamie Campbell Bower saying these!!!! I can’t wait for this book, I can’t wait for COB movie, I can’t wait for more trailers, I can’t wait for the rest of the books to be made into movies, arrrgggg, how am I gonna wait for all this?????? I have no idea!

  30. OMG so awesome
    cant wait

  31. Ill be 15 when City of Heavenly Fire comes out my heart dropped when I found out I had to wait till Mach 2014 I was mad it couldn’t come out sooner:(…

  32. Since I see that some people are talking about the covers… am I the only one that noticed that Clary has kissed every male on the covers? Nothing against it ( except Sebastian ), but just saying…

  33. Bella Herondale says:

    I’m going to be fifteen when CoHF comes out…o.O AND IM GOING TO TWENTY WHEN CoHF COMES OUT AS A MOVIE (If they continue) HOLY CRAP. O.O
    Oh no…the actors for CoB will have gotten older by then!!! What if they have to change the actors?! Or what if they don’t do the rest of the movies! AHHH!!!

  34. Andi Herondale says:

    i am so lost without Malec… sitting here crying

  35. I wonder why Alec wasn’t paying attention….maybe he was thinking about Magnus? :)

    Also, from one of the snippets it seems like the heavenly fire is having bad effects on Jace. They are trying to keep him calm, which means that something bad will happen if they don’t. Maybe the heavenly fire reacts with his moods, so that it lashes out and hurts those around him when he is angry or (hopefully not) feeling especially passionate? Just a guess on the latter, but the former seems pretty likely.

    And to me it makes the most sense that Simon would die. He has the entire eternity in front of him, and he never wanted that. He was never a warrior, but still wants to protect those he cares about, especially Clary and now Isabel. I can just see him saving at least one life, probably more, and giving his own in the process. It’s just so….Simon.
    The other choices would be Jace or Clary, which as the main protagonists seems very unlikely, Isabel, which would be killing off yet another lightwood, which I do not really see happening, or Alec or Magnus, which would lead to thousands of fans storming Cassie at her home with pitchforks and torches and killing her while she sleeps. If you were her, who would you choose to die? :)

    • Mayb Tessa will b n cohf since she had heavenly fire n her after she changed into ithurral (and she is technically related to jace after being married to will.

      • Annabelle Carstairs says:

        Jace, Isabelle, and Alec are all distantly related. Jace is descended from Will and Tessa, and Alec and Isabelle are descended from Cecily and Gabriel! :)

      • daydreamer84 says:

        if she does appear i will b happy but i dont think so cuz jem said ‘that is another story of the fairchilds and the herondales’ (not exactly a word for word quote but oh well) and she would know about that if she did.

    • The thing u said about simon that’s exactly why he would live, don’t u see because he’s not a warrior which is why it would be so more painful if he did die!!!!!

  36. It’s so nice to hear (well, read) sarcastic and witty Jace. I’ve missed him very much.
    Not gonna lie though, I’m confused about my feelings for Sebastian. sighhh

    • How are you confused about Sebastian? I’m not. He’s one of my FAVOURITE characters. I hope he doesn’t die. That would be VERY depressing. I’d also be depressed if Simon, Isabelle or Alec die. Even Magnus. One way or another, I can see my heart being broken when the book comes out. My favourite characters never have a happy ending. I want Clary to die, but I don’t see that happening… unless Ms. Clare shares my pain.

  37. I can’t wait for the book to come out!! Please leave more snippets!! They are great for suspense

  38. The book is going to be great. I cant wait for it to come out.

    And I agree Sophie the snippets are great for suspense.LOVE THE SERIES!!!!!!!!!!!!

  39. OH. MY. GOSH.

  40. I think simon will die because remember when clary had that dream where her and simon are dancing then out of no where she’s dancing with jace and when she ask where simon is jace says this place is only for the living…it was early in the series I don’t know if anyone remembers

  41. I hope Alex and Magnus get back together, besides clary and jace their like my top favorite couple!!!!! Please let them get back together. Their awesome!:)

  42. Omg i love it and i’m soooooo excited. And i agree all the way with autumn, Alec and Magnus have to get back together- they’re like my favourite gay/bi couple, but not gay gay couple though- and jace and clary… they just have to be together… it does get kind of annoying how they never end up being together for more than approximately five chapters. hmph. sign.
    I think that simon, either jocelyn or lucian, maybe jace- at the very end- it would suck so much if he did though… or maybe he gets stripped of him shadowhunter ability stuff, and possibly alec will die…
    and yes Alexis- i thought of that as well. Which is why i had to… kind of… rethink the possibilty that jace dies.
    unless both jace and clary die. :( i’m getting sad now.

  43. … or maybe it was just because he’s a vampire…
    or that both c and j die and they’re in shadow hunter heaven (place where vampires do not go- even in death)
    … ?

  44. aaahhhh I can’t wait!!!
    I’m so excited, and jace is so cute <333

  45. i hatehaving to wait! i am dying to know what the deal with clary and tessa is?


  47. I love the mortal instruments, I don’t want to wait for 2014! I need to know about malec!!!! 😫❤❤❤

  48. When I found out I had to wait until 2014 I cried. But it’s okay because in like 3-4 months CP2 comes out and it’s probably going to take me a year to recover from that book as far as I can tell by the snippets.
    I also think that Magnus will die…
    Cassie better not kill Simon off because he’s my favorite character, a long with Jace.

  49. Okay so I’m going crazy with theories here. Well I was retreading CoB and I got to the part where Jace’s fortune is being told “you have an enemy” and I asked Cassie about it on tumblr if it was Sebastian or Valentine or someone else and she said “you’ll find out” so this of course drove me mad. So call me crazy but I think someone close to them will switch sides against team good. Oh and I also think the person that dies will either be Simon or Alec, and maybe she was using Max as a foreshadow for the character that dies… Probably completely wrong but I had to spill<3

  50. Katy lightwood bane says:

    Cassie,cant urelease COHF earlier?!?PLEASE?! !:D

  51. ShadowhunterObsession says:

    Anyone who saw Jace in the CoB trailer, didn’t you wish Alex Pettyfer took the part? He looks just like my dream Jace!!!!! But Lilly Collins is perfect for Clary!!!!!! OhMyGosh, I can’t wait till March 2013, August 2013, and March 2014!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WISH EVERYTHING COULD BE RELEASED RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OhmyGosh what if Tessa is in CoHF!!!!!!!! That would be so perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just have this feeling she’ll be in CoHF or TDA or both!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BTW,excuse the xtra punctuation because I’m waay too xcited!!!!!!!!!!!! Also Cassie and the Shadowhunter Chronicles rule!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go, Shadowhunters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • I think Tessa will be in CoHF ,too!!!!!!! Did not think anyone would agree Love all of Cassie’s work!!!!!:)

    • Abigail says:

      I agree with the Tessa thing, but I don’t think Lily Collins is “perfect”…. First of all, she looks nothing like Clary, and she doesn’t even have light enough eyes to wear green contacts. She doesn’t have freckles (Haven’t looked very closely for that, but pretty sure she doesn’t, and if she does, they aren’t noticeable.) She isn’t a natural redhead, which kind of irritates me. Also, I can think of many actresses that DO qualify for looks that are just as good at acting as Lily from what I’ve seen of her in the trailers.

      • First of all there is no clary except for the one in ur head and on the cover of the books and of course lily Collins, I think what u mean is she looks nothing like what u imagined clary to look like!!!!! Not trying robe rude just truthful!!!! Again sorry if being rude not meant to be

    • Okay yes, lilly Collins is really pretty, but she is a brunette! Clary has red hair. I know all the details cannot be perfect, but I always hate movies that are made on my favourite books e.g. Harry potter, Percy jackson. The movies really spoil the storyline and often the theme of the books story. I’m sorry if I offended anyone, but these are just my views.

  52. depthsofthemind says:

    Isn’t Luke considered a main charecter? I kind of think that the Parents will die. None of our four shadowhunters really need their parents to relie on anymore and in teen storys the the parents always die shortly after becoming not neede but still wanted.

  53. Oh my gosh I am going to die!!!!! Is she trying to kill us?!? I love these books way to much if Jace dies I will personally write Cassandra Clare a very angry letter. Does any1 else fall madly in love with fictional characters!!!!!

    • Nah CC won’t kill of Jace coz then all her Jace fans everyone except my cousin and a few others will totally hate TMI!!

    • clarissamorgenstern says:

      If you write that letter, Emme, make sure that all names of us who swoons just on saying name Jace are in there!!!

    • This may b late but emme i totally agree and i support u 100% on that letter and think that its a fantastic idea! :) I love the characters and think about them all the time! These books have captured my heart and now Cassandra is just taking the world of TMI away from us!?!?!?!? ITSNOT RIGHT! Jace cannot and absolutley will not die! I forbid it! I will die 2!!! OMG! Great idea though emme!

    • Shadowhunters Look better in Black! says:

      wait, didn’t CC mention in the DA that in 5 yrs, all of the characters would in, like, there 20’s, and it mentioned Jace, clary, alec, Izzy, and simon,(I think)so he is gonna LIVE!!!!!! Yippee!!!

    • Yes

    • I do I do! I feel like I am in love with every book I get into! I feel like I am IN the story or I am the character. I laugh and smile when the characters do and I cry and mourn when they do…… I think my friends, family, and boyfriend think I’m absolutely nuts but they are close to my heart and it aches when the series’ I’m reading have to come to an end :'(
      Why can’t books be like ‘Days of our Lives’ and just keep going on forever!!? (I don’t watch it, but I wish my books would be as endless and immortal as that soap opera!)

  54. Jace&Clary says:

    Anybody who doesnt like TMI has the collective intelligence of a pinapple. :-P

    • I know right! People who don’t like TMI are messed up

    • Luvbooks says:

      I literally dont know anyone who doesnt like them. REALLY! i know some who dont know it but the rest all love it. But the film is really bad because of this TOTALLY WRONG JACE!!!!! alex petyfer would have been sooooo much better!!

  55. Someone will die? Other than Sebastian? But why? :(( No. Dont let any of em die. :((

    • Ikr! I love them all so much!

      • Tessa gray says:

        Yeh me to I really hope Thay don’t kill jem or tessa ! They are my fav charecters !!!!!! ( apart from will!,jace,clary!Alec!Magnus!Simon!Isabelle …Ect .. But not Sebastian !!! he is evil !!! I hope cassi does kill seb )

  56. RebeccaBjörnsdotter says:

    I can’t wait. Is it this the last book??? :( what? How am I going to survive with out it!! I agree with you Emme, you can put my name on that letter…

  57. I love Jace’s sense of humor. Soooo good to have him back after his absence in the previous two books. I can’t wait for Cohf to come out and I would rather CC to get that out this yr instead of clockwork princess which doesn’t have Jace or as many fans

  58. Omg i can’t wait even more now a whole year??????Uugh! :(

  59. Cool

  60. I’m so physched and can’t wait for the book to come out! An I looooooove Magnus’ character but I seriously don’t think he should be on the cover because remember, he is coming out with his own book. I saw it here the other day. An since it’s the last book, I think she will put all the characters in one cover and finally show thier faces!!!!😃
    Go Cassie!

  61. I so can’t wait for the city of heavenly fire book to com out!!! I just love the mortal instrument series.

  62. Omg I’m excited I can’t wait and judging form the snippets Alec and Magnus get back together!

  63. I will be 23 when this book comes out…and I am still going to read it :) I prefer YA books to adult ones any day.

  64. I think that the cover should be all the main characters from clary and jace to luke and jocelyn. But not only the good guys, Sebby should get the cover too!

  65. clarissamorgenstern says:

    Guys, d’you know that Cassie hinted than Maguns and Alec would get together again? OMG, I nearly bursted out when I found out that… after Clace and Sizzy, my favourite couple was Malec. I cried at the end of CoLS when they broke up…. :) :'(

  66. Sem sem sem sem sem sem sem sem lem lem lem lem sem times lem is semty sem

  67. OMG i cant wait that long its toooooooo long. my Anxiety is eating me! Ive re read all the books like a thousand times! just finnished city of lost souls and starting city of bones for the 10000000000th time!! who else is compleatly in love with Jace like me!!

    • I AM! NO JOKE! I’ve been reading them since I was 6 and bring them EVERYWHERE with me! Florida, Disneyland, Disneyworld, Washington, Oregon, New York, Hawaii, Greece, Italy, The White House, Russia, and pretty much any place i go. I keep a copy of TMI with me 24/7. At school in my locker in the car and of course my bedroom. Jace has always been my fav character. JACE ALL THE WAY! <333333333333333333333333333333333333333333

  68. OMG I totally <3 Jace! He is my fav character from all of Clare's books (which are all really awesome by the way.) I am only 11 and i AM IN LOVE with these series! Screw being14 and up books! I have been reading these books since FOREVER and LOVE THEM!!! Literally cannot wait for for City of Heavenly Fire. Clary and Jace definetley need to hook up. We need more hot sexy scenes! OVERALL AMAZING BOOKS! KEEP UP ALLTHE GREAT WORK CASSIE! <333333333333333333333333 Jace!!!!!

  69. OMG i am sooooooooooooo excited for CoHF!!! I love all the snippets w/ jace. he knows how to get a good laugh out of people! :) The clave has the intelligence of a pinapple. What brings him peace is war. HILARIOUS! Totally jace for ya! I may only be 11 but i get everything that’s happening and still i think clare should write what’s more appropriate for these books!!! They’re amazing dont get me wrong but im a total girly girl and i wanna see more scenes w/ sex related topics. Go TMI! I love Jace and Cassie all the way! PLEASE HURRY CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE! CANT WAIT! ;)

    • what I said when I was if Cassandra Clare was laughing as hard as I was when I was reading especially some of the things that Jace said, then I can only imagine the typos that she had to go back and fix.

  70. I <33333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333333 Jace!!!!!! Anyone else with me?

  74. ShadowhuntersBetterInBlack says:

  75. OMG. I can’t even wait until Heavenly Fire comes out. If it is true that Simon and Jace die. Then I will cry for months :'(

  76. I don’t hate jace or anything, i love him but i kinda like Sebastian too.

  77. Am i the only one that is dying because of Snippet #6??? SABASTIAN!

  78. Leslie Miller says:

    I absolutely adore this series!!! I wish that clary and jace could just be together without drama for a bit :)

  79. Haha the first snippet …. lol
    But OH MY LORD THEY ARE ALMOST ALL MALEC it makes me feeling like crying my little fangirl heart out whenever I hear the names Magnus or Alec…. so much pain *tears*
    Very glad Sebbie is managing to make an appearance ;)

  80. OMG That Sebastian comment is making me think…and also it’s really lol when Jace comments on the cat looking dead but Magnus replys “He’s not dead”. Haha OMG I AM DIEING TO READ COHF COME ON PUBLISHERS SPEED UP PLZZZ!!! :D

  81. OMG!! Clace <3 Sizzy <3 And isnt there another snippet with Simon saying bye to Isabelle or something?!

  82. OMG!!!!!!!! I NEED the book to come out!!! I can’t believe we have to wait a whole year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  83. chelsea says:

    last one has to be maureenwith sebastian

    • if it true i will not like it, and the idea about if sebastian be in love with her too :|||| I’ll be like, seriously sebastian? Maureen? sneaky ho-bag Maureen?!? T—–T nooooooooooooooooo

  84. OMG, when I found release date a freaked out!!! Wait so looooong?? Well, then I realized that I live in Czech republic,so I looked out for release date in my country and it’s 2014 DECEMBER!! Now I just want to kill myslef :D

    • Haha ja som zo Slovenska a u nas to ma vyjst az v januari 2015, taze kaslem na to a idem to citat po naglicky :D (I live in Slovak republic and it releases here in january 2015, so I’m gonna read it in english)

    • pre order it on KOBO, they give it to you on the release date ……..maybe it will work the same way in your country too……….(from Canada)

  85. i hope Jace is the one to kill Sebastian after what he did ti him and Clary i think Jace is seriously pissed at him and i hope Simon doesn’t die

  86. omg i am dieing rioght now! i absolutly cannot wait to read heavnly fire i need to find outn about jace and clary, and magnus and alec they can’t be broken up ! ahhh. this just killed me right in the feels man

  87. Eponine says:

    If someone has to die I kinda hope it’s Simon he seems like the easiest one to continue without. Oh I hope Jace doesn’t die

  88. I’m hoping when cassie says die that Simon deva pored and turns alive again so the vampire Simon dies then he can grow old with izzy, I love them together

  89. Sorry deva pored, don’t know what that meant was supposed to be devampire

  90. Yep shes inspired me very much too! Cant wait for this book! I absolutley luv her and everythig she does. And when we r finished wroting our books maybe we should all find someplace to share them with eachother online! I bet we r all amazing writers as cassandra clare is!


  92. I am so puzzled about the whole someone finding sebastian fascinating/not being repulsed by him situation. I’m thinking theres a huge chance its a new character, it’s clearly not a shadow hunter and im thinking it must be some form of downlworlder (it states that shes never really liked the personalities of shadowhunters, which means shes known shadowhunters for a while, right?) so for that reason I cant see it being maureen, she would have communicated with enough shadowhunters to really know what theyre like? and theres no one else who I feel could really fit the part, except camille, but shes out of the picture now. this is absolute torment! ATLEAST CLOCKWORK PRINCESS IS ALMOST HERE! WOOOOO!

    • I think the “She” is the seelie queen . (I hope I have written it down correctly) It make sense, she sided with Sebastian; and she is old enough to say “was always… ” Just a theory thought. But maybe Sebastian wont have to die is he will be “cleaned” (by the fire Jace is carrying)

      • You’re right, It might be the Seelie Queen though I’m also thinking it might be a new character, more likely a downworlder.
        Some small part of me hopes that Sebastian doesn’t die. I mean he deserves a second chance after having been experimented on by his father, being unwanted by his mother and sister and apparently having to deal with being alone all the time.

      • I totally agree with Chachi

    • Dude… I hope it’s a fairie from the Seelie Court. That’d be awesome.

  93. hmm….. why was magnus so defensive about chairman meow?… very conspicuous. why would a warlock who lives forever grow so attached to a cat? I think there’s more story to chairman meow than we think:)

  94. Tess Anneliese says:

    I can’t wait! But to everyone who is saying that Alec will die, I don’t think he will. Because Cassie already killed off Max, and I don’t think she would be so cruel as to kill off two of the Lightwood siblings. However, I do believe that she has it in her to kill off Magnus.

    • You may be underestimating Cassie… I could even see her killing off Clary, but that’s just me…

    • Well, killing little kid was pretty hard, so I don’t think killing Alec will be harder.. but who knows what Cassie thinks. Do you think that she knows the ending already?

  95. Kelly Carstairs says:

    OMG Sebastian I need to stop loving him because he is evil but…I just can’t

  96. Michelle says:

    Why isn’t anything about clary n jace together.

  97. ShadowhunterObsession says:

    Guys look on the bright side. Stop thinking Simon’s going to die. He won’t. First off he already did.(LOL). But he’s actually mentioned by Clary in the Shadowhunter’s Codex:


    “{Psst. Um, Clary here. Hi. Look, the Codex is full of useful information — Simon says it’s like a game manual for being a Shadowhunter — and that’s great, but first off, it’s a little stuffy, and second, it’s way, way out of date. No mention of the Mortal War or Sebastian, much less the more recent drama we’ve all been going through. So this version of the Codex is my edition and I’ve tried to fix it up a little. I’ve added in notes, updates, comments, and I’ve put in some of my art as well—my images of the Shadowhunter world and also, just because, some drawings of my friends.}”

    Also, check out the cover! I can’t wait to read the book! Even though its probably like their version of a history book and I never actually read my school books (LOL, who does?) But since Cassandra Clare wrote it, I am so buying it. Just like everything else.

    I’m back! Clockwork Princess had me out of commission (in a puddle of tears), but I’m back! I think Sebastian should leave “Sebastian was here!” sticky notes all over the institute while people are sleeping. That’s what I would do if I was an evil mastermind with a portal ring.

  100. I feel like Cassie will kill both Magnus AND Alec right after they get back together.

  101. What about Maia and Jordan!
    They might die too!!!!!!!

    • It is soooooo weird seeing someone with my name…….Especially someone who reads books. More spacifically, my FAVORITE book series EVER!!!!!!!!!!!

      Hi Chloe!
      My name is Chloe!
      Nice to meet you! hehees! :)

  102. “The clave has the collected intelligence of a pineapple.” I LOVE JACES SARCASM!!!!!

  103. Krystle Herondale says:

    I have a feeling Isabelle will be on the cover cause we haven’t had her on the cover yet…I really hope so, Izzy is kick ass and deserves to be on at least one of the covers!!!

  104. ermahgod!!!!!

  105. Krystle Herondale says:

    Ok, one more thing…. Just re-reading snippet 6?? Who do we think that is about?? How can someone stand Sebastian?? I literally want to stab him over and over every time I see his name on the pages… Thoughts anyone??

    • EXCUSE ME!!!! That’s so rude. Sebastian is amazing and he deserves to be treated well. I mean, the guy was tortured by his ass of a dad, and his mom decided to hate him BEFORE he was even born. Forget about the whole “his demon blood makes him evil” thing. I think he’s the way he is because of Jocelyn. I honestly believe that Sebastian would’ve been SOOO much different if he had a loving mom. But I guess that’s just me

  106. I AM NEPHILIM says:

    who is that mystery gurl in snippet 6 because whoever she is, she’s a bird-brain idiot.

  107. Omg I hope Tessa will be in COHF!!!!!!!!!!
    (and Jem too!)

    • Luvbooks says:

      Caitlyn, they will. I know allready! My bff is getting the book the day it comes out, and then we’re gonna read it together wooooooooohooooooooooooo!!!

  108. What if sebastian has possesed Clary and now she loves him!?!
    If this is true I will die!!!!!!!

    • Horsesbooksandcoolstuff says:

      Clary IS a Shadowhunter. And, she likes Jace(duh), Izzy, Alec, her mom, and LIKED Max but the Sebastian killed him.

    • I think it is so nasty that he ‘wants’ her!!! ewe. -3-

    • EEEWWW!!! Clary!!!??? That’s a VERY nasty thought. Who in their right mind would want Clary??? No offence Jace, but you can do SOOOO much better

      • …………………….. RUDE MUCH? PLEASE STOP PUTTING DOWN HER! I know she isnt real but still IT HURTS

  109. I loooove jace!! Agh i can.t wait for book six and who is the girl who love Sabastian in snippet 6?

  110. I actually want to step into the book, slap whoever the girl is in snippet 6, and then make out with jace… too much for a girl to ask?

  111. And maybe make out with Sebastian… don’t judge, i know he’s evil and all but… he’s soooooo hawt

  112. Swim girl says:

    Omg love book also loves Ids series
    What’s up with it whenever the characters are having a love scene it gets interrupted some how I hope Alex and Magnus work it out movie coming out a little disappointed Logan lerman should play as Alex
    Still have ? Hope they get answered other wise I will scream
    5th book Sebastian tries to ” do it” with clarry ” may I have a bag”

    • Horsesbooksandcoolstuff says:

      Logan Lerman is Percy Jackson. I’d HATE seeing him as another book character, especially a shadowhunter. The demigod to Shadowhunter transition just wouldn’t work

  113. Paris Gibson says:

    Definitely should be a Isabelle, Alec cover

  114. Omg, I cannot wait for this book to come out. Right after Clockwork Princess ended (after I sat in the bathroom, staring at the tears running down my cheeks, that is) I was like, “Gimme the next thing… I’ll die from waiting!” I cannot wait for the movie to come out, or CoHF!

  115. omg I want alec andx magbus to work so bad! And I hope we seed more of tessa and jem in this book! I mean they are together now so ikt would awesome!

  116. Who do you think is the girl who with Jonathan?

  117. I love Magnus and Alec so much. Jace is so funny, ” the clave has the collective intelligence of a pineapple “

  118. Ithereal says:

    I cant believe I read the first book in 2007 when it came out and I was 14 and now the final book is coming out and I’ll be 21. [old lady over here!! Awh yeah!] As for cover ideas maybe the cover will have something to do with Raziel. I dunno Heavenly Fire… Angels… Could be a possibility. Or maybe Shadowhunters in white for mourning with Idris burning.

  119. alexandmagnusmustgetbacktogether says:

    I really hope alex and magnus get back together, and i have to say; Sebastions interests in Clary is gross!!

  120. When thiis book comes out i will be tecnicly old enugh to read it 13

  121. Jame Roeske says:

    OH MY GOD!!! I AM SOOOO EXCITED U HAVE NO IDEA! I love Cassandra Clare, she is the best author in the whole world! The snippets look so amazing! I can’t wait! GO SHADOWHUNTERS!:)
    PS. sorry got a little carried away:)

  122. OMG guys!!!! There’s a girl who’s admiring Sebastian!!!! :D It’s a dream come true. So I have this fantasy: Sebastian will fall in love with a girl (I named her Camryn and she has black hair and green eyes) and then at the end Jocelyn will learn to love him, so he’ll learn the error of his ways, but he’ll somehow turn into an angel like thing. All of this probably won’t happen but I re-live this fantasy EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! So PLEASE Ms. Clare, please give me the time of day by making this happen!!!! Whenever I fall in love with series, the last book ALWAYS makes me depressed. So PLEASE give Sebastian a happy ending, and DON’T kill of him, Alec, Magnus, Simon or Isabelle. (These 5 are my favourites!!!)

  123. Horsesbooksandcoolstuff says:


  124. OHMIGOD I just realized something horrible!!! I live I in Canada but when CoHF comes out I’m on a three month exchange in France!!! D: D: D: D: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  125. GUYS Cassie has said before that Clary WILL be on every cover for the 2nd trilogy, so I’m guessing it’s going to be Clary and Sebastian. It seems the most fitting of anything else.

  126. CrazyFangirl Ainsley says:

    OH MY GOSH !!!!!!!!!! I canNOT wait !!!!! 2014 is to far away !!!! 😢 Is it true she is going to kill some characters ?!?!? Can’t wait I love Cassandra Clare!!!!!!! 😍😍😍😍😍

  127. Cecy~Carstairs says:

    I will be 13 too!😊

  128. I AM NEPHILIM says:

    I think the cover will be jace and sebastian fighting or jace, clary and sebastian together

  129. There’s was new spoiler art released today!!! It’s so intense!!!

  130. I AM NEPHILIM says:


  131. Jessie says:

    I hope that’s Jace and Clary in the third spoilery art o_o

  132. “You don’t knock now?” “It’s my bedroom! ”
    Isabelle would do something like that, soooo funny!

  133. Kimberly Canela says:

    I just died

  134. morgensterns!!! says:

    I have no idea why but Sebastian is my favourite character and I kind of hope he wont die..

  135. I really think that Simon will die… and this is just killing me… T.T

  136. fatima says:

    Thirsty for more MALEC action!!!! Can’t wait for COHF!!!

  137. I AM NEPHILIM says:


  138. Eponine says:

    What boy did Sebastian kill?!?!?!?!?! I must know!!!! Please don’t be Jace!!!!! Maybe it’s just a nightmare or something. Oh I hope none of the main characters die

  139. john bixby says:

    I hate how long we have to wait til hf comes out wat am I going to read until march…. I. Guess I can reread the first five and infernal devices….again!!!

  140. If Sebastian kills Alec or Simon Or Jace I will be SOOOO pissed off!! I will kill him….., IN MY HEAD!!

    • tessa gray says:

      Yeh if seb kills jem also I will sooooo join that kill seb thing !! I really love jem !! And tessa !! If sebastian kills either of them I will be soooo anoyed !!

  141. I LOVE TMI AND TID says:

    I’m so excited to see the whole Izzy and Simon thing… their so cute together!!!

  142. Clary isnt mentioned in any of it and who was that girl saying something about sebastion… unless that us clary. NOOOOOOOOOOOO

  143. Mrs.Jace Wayland!! says:

    OMG!! One of the main characters dies, that will literally make me break down and cry. I love Clary and Jace, they are the best and I may have a slight crush on Jace (Can I have a crush on a fictional character?) Isabelle and Simon (Simon is sooooo cute!) just have to end together as do Magnus and Alec. Max already died so it can’t be another Lightwood. Sebatian has my permision to die whenever he likes I just hope her doesnt hurt anyone else and I’m so super duper happy that Jocelyn and Luke are together, I wanted this to happen at the beginning but better late than never!! I adore Cassandra Clare and hope to be like her one day :-P

  144. Did anyone else realize that the little blonde girl in #8 is Emma Carstairs? Yep. Julian Blackthorn is her future parabatai.
    Sorry if that was already observed… I’m a bit too lazy to read every comment here

  145. cat hats says:

    omg!did you see snippet #4?!?! i hope jace doesn’t die!or simon! or Magnus! if magnus dies, iam going to be soooo upset! he is my favorite character of all the series! if jace does die, i hope he some how comes back to life:)i also hope simon and tessa and magnus will be in TDA, that would make me happy!:)

  146. AutumnrainChaos says:

    blargh what does that mean “Your boyfriend is dead”!? NO NO NO NO NO D:/

  147. Clary Fray says:

    I am going to die without city of heavenly fire!!! I already rewrote the first book in jace Alec Magnus Isabelle and church’s point of view because I needed to write something but how I thought this book was going to end

  148. Okay, first of all, what is Isabelle doing, making out with Jace? Or is that Jace? And why is Izzy saying goodbye to Simon?!

  149. Lady Midnight says:

    Who is kissing Alec in spoilery art #1?
    I hope its Magnus but Cassie describes Magnus as skinny and he (mystery man) doesn’t have any glitter on him so that’s why I thought it was Sebastian.
    But Sebastian doesn’t have dark hair unless he is Sebastian not Jonathan.

    Ugggggg!! This is going to kill me!!!

    • Its magnus. You cant put glitter on a painting/comic. Plus only Magnus would wear a rhinestone belt, and a scarf like that… and have spikey hair… SO MALEC EVERYONE!!! YAYYYYY ASDFGHJKL THEY”RE GETTING BACK TOGETHER!!!!

  150. Jillian says:

    Where did the spoiler-y fan art come from? Did other people read this before us? I’m so jealous now!!

  151. Im so excited… I’ll be antisocial again :)

  152. ok in the snippet about Sebastian’s chest we know it isn’t clary because it says I haven’t met a shadow hunter I can stand for more than five minutes

  153. Mackenzie Weber says:

    Wow. ‘sall I can say. Wow. I have been a fan of this series for AGES!!!! AGES! I’ve always loved to read, but Cassandra Clare does such a spectacular job of writing these novels, it takes it to a whole new level for me. It’s so incredibly AMAZING. She has trulyotivates me to write my own book. It was always on my bucket list, but it has most definitely been pushed to the forefront by her literature. It inspired me. Of course, it does help to have a bestest friend foreverandeverandever that is almost as crazy as you are. That definitely helps.
    PS: the movie for The City Of Bones is coming out in theatres on my birthday!!!!!!!!!!:) it’s on august 23. Sooooooo happy.

  154. Abigail says:


  155. destiny says:

    that last picture better not be Johnathan talking to Alec OR Magnus -.-

  156. Clarissa morgenstern says:

    Omg. Can’t wait for this book. I think I might die with excitement. Why can’t it come out sooner

  157. Jocelyn Fairchild says:

    Do you think it’s maybe Simon Izzy is in Alex’s room with. I don’t think it’s Sebastian since he doesn’t have any runes

  158. I can’t stand waiting for novels!!!!!ahhh I feel like I’m gonna die if I don’t read it soon! And I know Cassandra Clare probably is not going to read this question ,but does Tessa from the infernal devices appear in this novel??? Also does anyone else has a feeling that clary will die and jace will keep on living because he knows that she would want him to or the other way round?

  159. jace, marry me.

  160. Jaces mistress. says:

    e x c i t e d.

  161. who’s the guy saying, you know your boyfriend’s dead, in in spoilery art #4

  162. Jem is in COHF!!! Yaaaaayyyyyyyyyy. I’m happy. Brother Zachariah is there and yes, he is HOT :) I’m so happy. :D

  163. Bridget Lewis says:

    Well who really knows when she said MAIN character? She could kill off Sebastian and have us all worried for nothing!

    But I really hope that it won’t be Simon, he’s my favorite!


      • turquoise says:


      • HugeFan♥Clace says:

        YOU’RE A FREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
        :O :O

      • Tessa gray says:

        How the he’ll can you love Sebastian !!!!! He tried to rape clary while he knows there brother and sister and he killed hodge and max !!! Ok I know you have your own opinions but …….. but….. but I just can’t understand why you want clary to die !!! I will so cry if anyone dies …. Apart from Sebastian sorry

      • One does not simply wish for Clarissa Fray to die…..

      • I ALSO LOVE SEBASTIAN BUT YOU CAN’T HOPE CLARY DIES. I LOVE CLARY! (I know Sebastian is insane, but is not his fault, he has the damon blood inside him, he cannot help himself! And he’s sexy and all, so don’t call me freak for liking him!).

  164. girly Devin says:

    Nooooooo! Jace cant die!!!! Please dont let him die!!:(

  165. Eponine says:

    So who else started laughing hystarically when Izzy said “When did brother Zachariah get hot”??Anyone else?

  166. one wrod for this… city of heavenly firew is going to be the best one yet

  167. Can not wait until the last boom comes out it looks great

  168. OMG! I can’t wait!! Give the book!!! :O

  169. I LOVE TMI AND TID says:

    Something is wrong with Clary, why is she so Jonathon is good??? Plus WHAT IS WITH THIS WHOLE GOOD-BYE THING WITH SIMON AND IZZY!!! THEY ARE LIKE MY SECOND FAV COUPLE. COMPLETELY DEVO!!!

  170. Pigwidgeon says:

    Omg cassandra Clare has just made me want to read it more!!! I am so excited to find out what all these snippets mean!!!

  171. bookworm says:

    why does she hav to leave CoLS on a serious cliffhanger??? its torture!!!! totally LOVE this series!!!! :)

  172. bookworm says:

    has anyone taken the time to notice how gorgeous jace looks in the trailer at 0:29??? thats official trailer 1 btw

  173. cat hats says:

    i love snippet # 10makes me think even more that cassandra is going to add characters from TID !!!!!!:)

  174. Best dang shadowhunter ever! says:

    OMG!! JULIAN IS THE NAME OF EMMA CARSTAIRS’ PARABATAI!!!!! And they are in CoHF!! And Brother Z turns back into Jem in 2008 so he’ll be JEM AGAIN!

  175. Where’s spinet #11?

  176. AHHHHH Brother Zachariah is Jem!!!! thats why hes so hot oh my god im dying im dying if simon dies im gonna kill myself and if malec doesnt live ill give up on my life

  177. Gosh, 2014 can’t come soon enough it seems!

  178. For spoilery art #4, I will seriously die and ball my eyes out if that piece of art means Jace will die in Heavenly Fire! I won’t be able to take it! It will cause to much pain!

    • I reckon Sebastian will just be trying to bate clary when he says that. I don’t think Jace will die

  179. OH MY GAWWD!!!!!!! XD FEELS!!!! This is so amazing!!!!! I just had a fangirl heart attack

  180. Hey my fellow fan-girls, what does everybody make of snippet 9? Just asking because I get a feeling that MR green eyed dude is Sebastian!!!

    • Just Another Shadowhunter says:

      A little late, but I don’t think the Seelie Queen is the women in #6, but at the same time, I do…. I’m betting on Maureen. Also, I have a sick feeling Magnus & Alec will die because of the foreshadowing in the latest book (trying to find a “cure” for immortality. Yes, I know horrible) Or Simon. As for the Sebastion boyfriend killing, it’s obviously one of the well- known couples (& it can’t be Jace; we all know Sebastion has a *cringe* thing for Clary. Killing Jace would get rid of a HUGE “bargain” for Seb (if Sebastion were to bait Clary). From the looks of it, Clary is under SOMETHING; a faerie drink maybe? *cough* Seelie Queen *cough*. And I’m going to put this here now; if Jace gets harmed in ANY HUGE WAY, I will not be happy. NO.

  181. Who’s dead? !!!!!!!

  182. Just Another Shadowhunter says:

    Wait just a second… Where’s Jace’s other arm in the Clace snippet? ASDFGHJJLLDHISMDGAJSKALASDFGHJKL

  183. Ok so I don’t think everyone should freak out about the “since” in the TDA description because since might just mean that there hasn’t been a young shadowhunter that good since jace but I don’t think that necessarily implies that he dies and I just don’t think that she would kill off jace but I think it might be Magnus because he’s been in like all of her books and lived for a really long time so I think it would not be as sad just my personal opinion

  184. Accually I think “the main character who dies” is going to be Sebastian because Cassandra Claire loves to scare us it seems

  185. I just reloaded that they will meet Jem as Jem in this book because of the snippet ask when Brother Zachariah got hot. Brother Zachariah is Jem. THEY COULD MEET TESSA ASWELL. My life will be complete if that happens!!!!!

  186. Abria Johnson says:

    This is amazing!! Can’t wait for City of Heavenly Fire!!! :)

  187. turquoise says:

    did we ever find out what the seelie queen meant about jace ‘being bound’ to clary???

  188. I’m feeling a bunch of love scenes in this book!!!

  189. Mia Bulivou says:

    OMG!!! Who bets Jem and Tessa will be in this book!!!!!!!

  190. I <3 these books so much that I actually. Read through all the comments… XD
    Ahhhh I can't waitttt

  191. turquoise says:

    cassie said that the ‘since’ doesnt mean anything. but jace could still die!!!!!! NOOOOOOO!!!!!!! or simon. or magnus. or alec. HEEEELP!!!! THIS BOOK IS CONTROLLING MY LIFE!!!! STOP TORTURING ME CASSANDRA CLARE!!!!!! clary could get the mark of lilith and that might be why clary’s acting weird about sebastian. and then jace could save her with his heavenly fire. AAAAAAAAGH!!! GIVE ME THE BOOOK!!!!!!!! ^o^!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  192. Hailey Web says:

    When or If they make the other movies i think that Paul Bettany would make a great RAZIEL

  193. I cannot wait for this book, I am SO worried that something will happen to one of the main characters!

  194. TMI-TID says:

    I just finished the Clockwork Princess, so n

  195. I LOVE TMI AND TID says:

    This is so exciting, the city of bones movie, than COHF just around the corner… I can barely stop myself from screaming. This is it guys the home stretch, with a movie to soften the wait. So pumped!!!!

  196. Okay so I know a lot of you guys have been freaking out over that “since” in the TDA blurb but I think that what the “since” actually means is the best shadow hunter in that age group since Jace Lightwood cause Emma’s still deemed a child in the shadow hunter community just like Jace. So I don’t think Jace will die I just think the person or whoever writes the blurb is screwing with our feels.

  197. toffee ice cream says:

    im coming up with CRAZY theories. im going insane. CC said that she’d kill up to FOUR characters……AAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I NEED THIS BOOK NOW!!!!!!!!

  198. Marissa Herondale says:

    i just finished the fifth book last night and i instantly was just like “okay marissa you’ve finished all the book, now you have to wait for the sixth to come out in march, in the mean time you dont know what to do with your life and thats ok” then i curled up in a ball and silently cried myself to sleep

  199. Marissa Herondale says:

    what if jace and clary die together like in some sort of sacrafice to kill sebastain

  200. Fangs and teeth says:

    Will she kill four secondaries characters?

  201. CoHF is coming out on my birthday :) Best.Present.Ever. (1st March 2014- My Sweet 16)

  202. Danielle says:

    please tell me that spiolery art #2 means jace and clary will finally have sex

    and only a year and a half to go, the wait is killing me 😩

  203. I LOVE JEM and I can’t wait to see him as brother Zachariah!

  204. Nefilim says:

    What about the the picture number 2 OMG!!!!!

  205. GAH! That last picture…. Torture! She wouldn’t would she? I Mean that’d be so cruel!

  206. I think Izzy’s last quote about Brother Z is after he turned into Jem again. I wonder what he said to that. Maybe something about Tessa? OMG. I can’t wait. I also wonder how Sebastian put those thoughts into Clary’s head. I wonder if the kiss between Alec and Magnus was if Magnus was like New York. Why do we have to wait so long? I was literally breathing hard by the end of the last spoiler art.

  207. Wait wait, how its possible for Simon to be in Alec room if downworlders can’t enter the institute? :O He’s not a vampire anymore?

    • Omg Sophie you are totally right!!!! That could mean so many things! Could it be that isabelle is with someone else. Or Simon isn’t a vampire anymore!!!!! When you click on the pic of isabelle kissing the other mystery guy cassie clare gives u a clue about the pic. She says who doesn’t have runes and she tagged the pic saying dizzy as in Simon and isabelle

      • But dizzy doesn’t stand for Simon and izzy, it stands for izzy and someone else who’s first name begins with a d, doesn’t it!!!!! Or did I read ur comment wrong?!?!?!?

  208. I’ll be 15 when CoHF comes out. :c Currently reading Clockwork Angel & trying to take my time with TID so it makes the wait more bearable. xD Haha

  209. I don’t think Jace is going to die and that janathan is just lying like everything else he says. For some reason I have a feeling that Clary’s mother is going to die by janathan killing her and Simon dies too. That brother Zachariah Is James from the clockwork angles. And if this is the last book then I hope jace marries clary. When I found out that there is going to be people dying I thought that it will be the people that clary loves because janathan he said ” there are worse things than dying and I will do them all to you, little sister……” And I think he means by killing her love ones and other things. But jace cant not die he is the main character and he is partly the reason clary is a shadowhunter.

  210. In the Spoilery Art #3. Who are the three in the picture?? I would automatically assume the blonde hair would be Jace. So I presume who he’s kissing is Clary. But under it is Isabelle getting mad at Alec for knocking on the door. BUT doesn’t Simon have dark hair???? I’m so confused!!!

    • OMG! I thought I was the only one! Is that Jace?! UGGGG

    • Actually, Simon has brown hair, according to cassandra Jean, who draws all the stuff for cassandra Clare. So Simon does have dark hair, and that is Simon and Isabelle

  211. Tania Salgado says:

    If Alec or magnus dies I’m gonna be so mad and I’m going to cry so hard. I love them too much they need to be together and back again. Magnus is like important he’s a big part in the series.

  212. juliana says:

    i think that magnus will die saving alec because she said that tessa will apper alot in tda so probly magnus died and i hope that tessa becomes mortal since it is possible and stay with jem

  213. Amy Prumbach says:

    “Your boyfriends dead just thought you should know.” Who’s boyfriend? Clarys? Maia? Isabelle’s? Alec’s?

  214. Hyacinth says:

    Omg the malec clace the sizzy kiss who did Sebastian kill
    WHY CASSIE !!??

  215. daydreamer84 says:

    are clace on a BEACH!!???

  216. I love Malec! I hope they get back together!

  217. His eyes shone when he looked at her, green as spring grass.

    He has always had green eyes, said the voice in her head. People often marvel at how much alike you are, he and your mother and yourself. His name is Jonathan and he is your brother; he has always protected you.

    Somewhere in the back of Clary’s mind she saw black eyes and whip marks, but she didn’t know why. He’s your brother. He’s your brother, and he’s always taken care of you.

    #9 is killing me!!! Is Jonathon good???

  218. Cassandra, PLEASE DO NOT kill Magnus, Alec, Jace or Clary, nor Luke or SImon, It would be like killing a piece of me.

  219. I can’t wait for the final book! It sounds brilliant from the snippets

  220. Snippet #9

    His eyes shone when he looked at her, green as spring grass.

    He has always had green eyes, said the voice in her head. People often marvel at how much alike you are, he and your mother and yourself. His name is Jonathan and he is your brother; he has always protected you.

    Somewhere in the back of Clary’s mind she saw black eyes and whip marks, but she didn’t know why. He’s your brother. He’s your brother, and he’s always taken care of you.


    “I doubt that,” Valentine said. “If you did, you’d keep your mouth shut. For your brother’s sake, if not your own.”

    Valentine said her brother, which is Jonathon as we know NOT Jace.
    I know it’s a long shot BUT what if Valentine here was talking about her real brother and NOT Jace???

  221. if that last picture is Jonathan talking to Clary then my life will be over.

  222. gggggggrrrrrrrrrrr so want the book to be out now!!

  223. NoneOfYourBusiness says:

    So I said the same thing under Unidentified Snippets, but I want to hear ya’lls thoughts. So everyone wants Tessa and Jem to appear in CoHF, right? But Jem is not made human until 2008, and the Mortal Instruments takes place in 2007. But remember, between Clockwork Prince and Clockwork Princess, there was a two month gap. There could be a gap in the timeline like this between CoLS and CoHF. City of Lost Souls takes place in the fall/winter of 2007. Halloween has already come and gone, so the gap between CoLS and CoHF could take the series into the next year, 2008. Tessa and Jem do have a chance of appearing in CoHF if Jem is made mortal in early 2008. Clare said Tessa would not play a major role in CoHF, so I am thinking Magnus takes Jace, Clary, etc. to Tessa to help find Sebastian or to help Jace with his heavenly fire problem. And I am guessing Magnus will not be the one to die because he is the constant in all of Clare’s series so far. I am thinking either Sebastian and/or Simon will die.

    • daydreamer84 says:

      i dont think so cuz jem said ‘that is another story of the fairchilds and the herondales’ (not exactly a word for word quote but oh well) probably referring to the events in COHF. and tessa says “i didnt expect to find the world as wasted as it is’ (i cant quote without the book in my hand ok!!)

  224. I LOVE TMI AND TID says:

    Where does it say people are dying…tots confused!!! SOMEONE TELL ME WHATS GOING ON!!!

    Please don’t kill Simon, Please don’t kill Simon, Please don’t kill Simon, Please don’t kill Simon, Please don’t kill Simon, Please don’t kill Simon,Please don’t kill Simon, I AM BEGGING HERE, please don’t kill him

  226. Don’t let it be Simon don’t let it be Simon. I hope it’s one of those things were Sebastian is trying to trick them or where he thinks there dead but there not.

  227. NO ISABELLE NO!!!! Don’t go for the creepy man!!!! Please?…..

  228. fallen3angels says:

    i feel like it won’t be simon because of all the times he’s already died or almost died. at least this is what i’m telling myself in order to remain sane

  229. amna246 says:

    I am stressing out too much I just need another snippet!!!!!!

  230. Snippet #9
    I think it’s Clary, but a witch or a warlock put some sort of magicy ,voodoo ish spell on her making her like her brother. It’s not Clary it’s Clary that likes Sebastian. It’s kinda like what happened to Jace.

  231. Casandra says:


  232. When did Brother Zachariah get hot?!?!?!
    Haha love Isabelle

  233. daylighter33 says:

    idk if this has already been addressed and i just missed it but in the spoilery art of izzy making out out with someone and alec walking in, is this person’s identity confirmed yet? cuz simon can’t be in the institute and this mysterious person has light hair. and idt its sebastian cuz he doesn’t have any visible marks. this has been driving me insane since i realized it might not be simon so if anyone has any ideas……..

  234. K, I’m just hoping that because Simon is a day lighter that he can go in the institute and that’s what it is…..

  235. Just saying, to all those people who think it’s Simon Izzy is making out with, sorry to dissapoint, but unless Alec moves out of the Institute, Simon and Izzy wouldn’t be able to make out with Simon in there. Cause he’s a vampire?

    • It really does depend on when they r making out because and this is just a guess, but if there making out after Alec’s got back with magnes then it could be his place there?? But again Simons hair?!?! If izzy cheated I’m going to be mad!!!!!!

  236. Junie Adams says:

    I seriously think that Jace is going to die in City of Heavenly Fire, something that would be very depressing. I read somewhere that Cassandra Clare said that Jace and Clarie were not going to get married or have children so….
    I reallllly hope I’m wrong.

    • Yep but did she mean in the book or generally because those r to very different points!!!! It depends on how old clary and jace r at the end

    • Yep but did she mean in the book or generally because those r to very different points!!!! It depends on how old clary and jace r at the end of CoHF, cus if there young then u dont know that they won’t get married and have children!!!!

  237. “By the way, your boyfriends dead.”

    Jace, Alec, Magnus, Jordan, Luke, or Simon. EEEKKK

  238. Okay so I’m probably going to fell really dumb after I ask this but what does TDA stand for? Also I absolutely love this series! By far the best books I’ve ever read! I finished CoLS today and can’t stand the wait for the next book:(

    • The Dark Articles it’s Cassandra Clare’s new series of shadowhunter books, it’s set 5 years after the mortal instruments!!!! U know one of the snippets has those children in it and one of the children Julian has to hold the mortal sword and the girl than appears, well her names Emma and she’s Emma Carstairs and its about her and her best friend/ parabatai Julian!!!!! Google the dark articles!!!!

  239. fallen3angels says:

    TDA stands for the dark artifices which is going to be the next shadowhunter series after the mortal instruments

  240. I hope Clary and Jace go all the way this time. The teasing foreplay and stopping is driving me nuts!

  241. jrhall22 says:

    Also, they better not kill Jace off for good. That’ll mean all my time reading these books was wasted!

  242. Watermelon says:

    These are amazing I can’t wait for the book to come out!!!!

  243. shadows and dust says:

    Has any one ever noticed that in snippet 9, Clary thinks that her brother is good, and I mean the Clary we know hates him. So does anyone remember in COLS when Sebastian wanted Clary to drink from the cup? and she accidentally took a sip, so maybe that is changing her slowly?
    I don’t know that’s just my opinion.

    • Ella Herondale says:

      I never thought of that. I was wondering, because there is not a lot of Clary in the snippets. But the theory does seem a lot like COLS though. I think they would just be too similar.

    • Writergirl98 says:

      Clary never actually drank from the cup. Sebastian tried to force her and,the cup sliced open her lip. That was the blood she tasted. Immediately after that she escaped into the battle. (pg. 482 of COLS)

  244. I love the image of alex walking in on isabelle! God I love tmi! This is going to be way more successful than twilight! Ps. There are so many comments! :D

  245. J Herondale says:

    “Your boyfriends Dead, thought you should know”

    OMG… Am i the Only whoose brain just like… Exploded?!

  246. I was reading a interview on tom source and cassandra clare said that a couple of characters may die in COHF. And on the last snippet of Jonathan christopher Morgenstern he says ” your boyfriend is dead thought you should know.” ………. I wonder who that is?

  247. Ella Herondale says:

    does anyone think…. that Simon might……die? It seems a likely possibility, due to the last snippet, and #7….

  248. I think that the its camille’s POV in #7

  249. In spoiler art #3 it looks like Jace is kissing Issabelle. Especially because the quote under it….


  251. omg i think that the part where little julian and that blonde girl are standing next to each other is the two main characters in he next trilogy (like lady midnight) because it said that the guy main character’s name is Julian and it takes place five years in the future so they would be 11 or 12 when all this was happening and i feel so smart right now. :) (this is just a guess)

  252. I love jace can you love a character can wait for movie in 10 days even though I know books are soooo much better I also love will I cried hen he poured his heart out to Tessa and she was already engaged I love jace though ooooooooh movie did not choose right actor though

  253. I am literally going to bawl my freaking eyes out at the end of CoHF. I saw that this is the last book of TMI, and i started crying. I am seriously in love with these books. They have become part of my life. The fact that this series is going to end, will probably crush me. Even if Cassandra makes this new series. TMI is my favorite out of all. I am kind of glad though that they are tying in TID to TMI. I am so glad Cassandra made TMII as long as she did, because i have honestly fallen in love with all of her characters. Please Cassandra, DON’T EVER STOP WRITING ABOUT SHADOWHUNTERS. PLEASE.

    • NoneOfYourBusiness says:

      I think I like TID better. I like the characters better. Plus, I think Clary is too much of a hot-head. I prefer Tessa because she doesn’t come out as such a pain in the butt.

  254. Herondale love says:

    Okay, so the ” when did brother Zachariah become hot” part made me yell! HOLY JEM IS BACK!! When the book first came out (Clockwork princess) I freak and flipped to the last page where it said tessa and Jem ended up together and i was sad. I love them together but… Will and Tessa truly is the other person. Both can never shut up, both are selfless, both know pain, both know love, both never stop fighting. I’m so happy how the books turned out it’s an amazing plot twist but HOLY, OMG FINALLY! I hope Tessa meets Jace and tells him hers and Will’s story. I really think he should know and that the books should entwine together. Wrapping up both series with everyone together is the only way to finish a series with this much love, suspense, triangles, and in this case the past really affects the future. I’m so excited to meet the Sebastian that sees past the hate with love from this new character, and how everyone ends up. Love. Hate. Passion. War. This- is why I love this series more than anything. (Please say your opinion on anything i said if you wish but keep in mind this is just my thoughts.)


    • NoneOfYourBusiness says:

      I was thinking the exact same thing. I hope Tessa tells her story to Jace and all the rest of them even though I know it will never happen. Clare wants the two series to be independent of each other which I totally don’t like.

  255. Clarissa_Morganstern_Rules says:

    I don’t think that they will kill of Simon, purely because Clare said she liked his character the best, and I hope that Sebastion is lying but I don’t think that he would be talking to Clary as we can see she gets turned into one of his minions. Unless she rebells…
    I also think that she will kill off Maia and/or Jordan as they are loose threads in the book and their story goes nowhere. BTW Cassandra Clare: DON’T KILL OFF SIMON, CLARY, JACE, IZZY OR MALEC coz i luv them and would just die!!!!!

  256. Okay Cassandra Clare HURRY UP AND FINSH THIS BOOK! I MUST READ IT!!!!!

  257. Isabelle Lewis says:

    I just can’t wait for the book. I really love Sizzy and I hope Simon doesn’t die and I hope Simon and Isabelle are going to be together! I just can’t wait.. i’m dying to know what happens!

  258. OMG!!!! Simon won’t die because it will totally reck EVERYTHING!!!Clary will be heartbroken and so will Izzy and Alec. Jace will need to fuel his anger by probably killing someone and Magnus will disappear somewhere (maybe in Rome??)
    I really hope that if one of the main characters has to die it will be Alec, because it says that he turns into a drunkaholic or something and so he is already half gone, but I think that it would ruin the series if any of the main characters died, and I really hope that there is more sexual action in the book, nothing serious but you know I would love it if Simon and izzy really got it hot and jace and clary got a bit more trust between them so that they can………..

  259. Can’t wait for the movie to come out!!!!!

  260. OMG!!! I CAN’T WAIT ANYMORE!!! I CAN’T WAIT FOR CoHF and TDA series! This snippets totally got me excited!

  261. One of Jace's Biggest Fans says:

    Seriously now Cassie.. if you write about Jace being dead in CoHF or TDA…. :'( Don’t do it. Please. I need Jace. I love him too much.
    I’ll cry my whole life. It will be become my childhood trauma.
    Don’t write about Jace being dead :”(
    ♥ I love you Jace ♥
    ♥ ♥ ♥

  262. Omg I am like no joke freaking out right now I need this book to come out sooner!!!!!!!!!

  263. How do you expect us to wait until May. I understand someone has to die but I will still yell, and cry and go through a lot of emotions before I can coupe with the books.

  264. I don’t want Sebastian to turn good cause every book needs a villain and he’s part demon so I think it doesn’t need to end so happy!
    And about Spoilery Art#4 I think it will be 50%- Magnus, 25%- Simon or 25%- Luke cause he’ll be talking to the one of main characters like his mother, Isabel or Alec. I’m sure he isn’t talking about Jace cause he is too important in this story to loose him and in the end of COLS Clary said that he needs them both so why would he kill him?!

  265. Snippet ten defintly gave away that tessa and jem are going to be in cohf

    • TessaJem&Will4ever says:

      Excuse me, how can Tessa be in? When she met with Jem on the bridge at the end of Clockwork princess and asked him how it was that he was not a silent brother anymore, he told her it was thanks to another Lighwoods and Herondails and Fairchilds but it was too long to tell her in that moment. From here I figure whatever happened in the City of heavenly fire, happened before he meets her on the bridge. Correct me if I am wrong.

  266. NoneOfYourBusiness says:

    I hope so!!

  267. I <3 THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS!!! I love Jace's comment on being correct 90% of the time! Please hurry on City of Heavenly Fire!!!

  268. I’m totally convinced that a) Maureen and Sebastian are gonna get together b) there is gonna be another creepy Sebastian/Clary scene c) Alec is gonna die (which will totally destroy my heart!!!)

  269. Maia better not die. She is my favorite character. If she does I will be so upset. Pls don’t kill her anyone but her, jace, clary, izzy, Alec, or Magnus. Simon I have a feeling will die though.

  270. I feel like Jace might die just because no matter how much of a good person he is he has such horrible bad luck. If not Alec might die too because he is just so vulnerable.

  271. Or simon too because he grew sooo much and is such a great person but has lost alot and will probably loose more.

  272. the whole Clary mind-control thing is freaking me out… just give Clary and Jace a break will ya? Theyve been through so much they need some time to freakn be together before another bomb shell gets dropped on them. I<3 Clace

  273. Izzy Is My Fav says:

    Snippet #7 made me cry. I love Sizzy so much :'(

  274. daylighter33 says:

    i don’t think magnus will die because he is the link between tmi and tid and since she is coming out with tdi i think he will be in that as well

  275. OMIGOD! I made a list of all the characters that I would be said if died but wouldn’t be too heart broken over and Alec and Magnus are the only characters that I NEED to stay alive.
    Please, do not kill one of them. I will cry for days.

  276. Are any of you worried as I am that Cassie Clare won’t give us the happy ending we want?

    Side note: If Jem is going to be in CoHF, do you think Tessa will make an appearance as well?

  277. Holy crap. I hope Tessa is going to be in this book a bit because Jem is. Fan-girling so hard right now.

  278. I love dis series,at first I was hesitant but I just adore it

  279. I swear, when Cassie stops writing these books, I will shrivel up and die.

  280. mynameismyname says:

    I have a suspicious feeling that a major plot twist will come up in CoHF… I’m talking REALLY major plot twist.
    It would be awesome if Jem/Brother Zachariah told Jace why he cares about him so much. <3 I can't wait!

    • You know everyone’s freaking about TDA because of when it says Emma Carstairs is the best shadowhunter since Jace Lightwood, and everyone thinks that means Jace is dead, it has to be a different Jace because Jace’s last name is Herondale?!?!? Wait Jace started calling himself Lightwood towards the end of CoLS didn’t he. Ok just ignore my comment!!!!

      • I heard that jace an clary both make appearances in TDA so I’m hoping they get a happily ever after

    • Tessa gray says:

      I think he does becouse in one of the snippits jace says that he feels sorry for brother zachariah becouse he lost his pabarii .so i think that brother zachriah / jem will tell him about WILLand Mabe tessa !

  281. Fangs and teeth says:

    For some reason I’m afraid that Alec and Simon die…

  282. Wow I really can’t wait now for the book to come out!!!!!! I’m so annoyed I have to wait till next year!!!!!!!! I’m guessing by Isabelle saying and I quote “Okayyyyy,” Isabelle said in a low voice, “When did brother Zachariah get hot?” Jem tells his story or something about him, like what he used to look like?!?!?!?!?

  283. OMG, what did Sebastian mean in the picture? Who’s boyfriend? Who did he kill? Omg, i need the book ASAP

  284. I feel like Tessa cant be in CoHF because it would give away the ending to Clockwork Princess. And im growing more and more fearful of a high death count for this book! Seriously, how much more can Cassie screw with our emotions??

    • Tessa gray says:

      Well I think tesa and jem should be in the book and the people have until may to read clckwork princess after all Cassandra Clare knows what she’s doing and her plot line fits perfectly with her other book series TID and this last bok is kinda the one were I think she’s gonna tie all the lose ends together and answer all the unanswered questions that we have ablout clockwork princess

  285. That last picture killed me!! I’m terrified now! Lol I can’t wait for the book to come out, though!!

  286. those snippets are killing me not noing whats going on. WOW i wish i could draw like these people. Cant wait till COHF comes out!:)

  287. OMG THE PART WHERE BROTHER ZACHARIAH GOT HOT!!! Tessa and Jem HAS to be in this book!!! Then Tessa goes to Jace and be like, “I’m your great great great grandmother”. Then she tells Alec that SHE married Will and Magnus had nothing really going on…

  288. Jace have to end up together. Like really. First it was the brother and sister thing, then the Jace demon control thing and then the Jace having the heavenly fire inside.
    They have suffered SO MANY TIMES. If they don’t end up together.. screw you Cassie. Just that.

  289. Jace and Clary* I mean whoops*

  290. Clarissa_Morganstern_Rules says:

    If you think about why she killed off Max, it was because his story line was a) was going nowhere, like he was a main but not a MAIN character and b) he wasn’t with anyone couple-wise. So if Cassie get’s rid of story lines that go no further then i think that she will kill off Maia Jordan or may both??? IF SO, PLEASE NO!!!!

  291. Rita Herondale says:

    I really want to know who is in that picture with Isabelle because he has no runes (so hes not a shadowhunter) and hes got blond hair? Also, that snippet about clary and sebastian “hes your brother and he’s always taken care of you”. Like what?! Is she possessed or brain washed?! I really hate Sebastian and to read a snippet like that is…worrying and making me angry that he’s done ssomething to Clary!!

  292. Based on spoilery art #4 the person who dies is probably either Jace (EFF NO!), Simon, Magnus, Alec (I’m betting, though it wouldn’t be fair if two Lightwoods died in one series…), or Jordan (probably not though because – at least for me – he hasn’t been in the books long enough to count as a main character or someone who I would be absolutely devastated to see go.

  293. Thank you for the selection – it’s great to find it all in one place!
    Well, it’s all very intriguing to say the least.
    I really like that the comedy is still there. But my favorite places in Cassie’s books are always the deep, serious, existencial ones, so I really liked number 3, it speaks volumes, that’s the kind of part you read and read again and every time you see more meaning behind it.
    It seems we are likely to expect some people to die and it looks like that besides some less known and less beloved characters it might be Simon. Which would be a shame – I hoped that after he didn’t get the girl he truly wanted and was unlucky enough to be turned into a vampire he would get some happiness later in the series.
    There will be some major plot twists like Clary thinking Jace is dead (I want to say “again”?) and her getting under Sebastian’s influence somehow to think of him as her brother who’s always taken care of her.
    I wonder who is the girl in snippet 6 who seems to like Sebastian. Maybe Maureen?
    And of course I am looking forward to see more romantic scenes with Magnus and Alec, Jace and Clary and Simon and Isabelle. It looks like that at least one scene with Clary and Jace will be especially HOT in the literate sense of the word :)

  294. Writergirl98 says:

    They’re all dead?!?! D:

  295. Mrs.Carstairs101 says:

    Why do i think #14 ad #12 are going to be related?
    And……… WHO THE FREAK IS MAGNUS TALKING ABOUT!?!!??!!?!?!?(7/$Ajeujausjdu$:&27sjejxid😱😲💀


  297. “Okayyyyy,” Isabelle said in a low voice, “When did Brother Zachariah get hot?”

    i love this one, all i see is Jem walking by them and All of them (including the guys) mouths drop wide open staring at him. i knew he would be in this book…..OMG i cant wait to find out more. but this one “Oh, God,” Magnus said. “They’re dead. They’re all dead.”
    i don’t like this, i want to cry at this line, after reading it my heart i swear stopped beating for a minute and then when it started again it was racing so fast i thought i might pass out.NOT GOOD!!!!!!! Don’t kill them Cassie not all of them (unless she’s meaning the demons or evil shadowhunters then yes kill them all!!!)

  298. I think simon is to integral to it today cuz it would wreck clary, izzy and maia in turn hurting jace jordan alec and magnus, i think magnus will probabaly die for alec, just dont wan’t simon to die n i hope him n izzy find a way to be together

  299. I think that clary and Isabelle should be Parabatai anybody else think so?

  300. Part of me loves that Cassie’s revealing snippets, but it also is just making the wait longer.

  301. OMG so excited!!! #fangirling Izzy and Clary should so become PARABATI

  302. Gosh I can’t wait 4 d next book. Wat happens 2 crazy wit anxiety.

  303. ok I think we all know that 1- Jem and Tessa come out in this book, 2- Magnus is probably going to forgive alec, 3- it sounds like Clary is put under her brothers inf;uence and 4- Some one close to or part of the blacktorn family dies. Theres probably more but I haven’t overanalyzed it yet so…

    • i actually agree with all these guesses! i think, snippet 13 as well is isabelle asking why magnus kissed alec:) like magnus is scared he’s not going to see alec again for what ever reason:S

  304. Alright. What is up with #9. Did Jonathan erase her mind!! Did she forget? Or is she just possessed like Jace was?

    Why did that look like Jace and Isabelle. Why. WHY.
    The quote that goes with it,my god.
    WAIT WAIT WAIT. Is that Jem? Or is it Jace? Or maybe it’s not isabelle, maybe it’s Clary but her hair is drawn really dark. SOmeone hElP Me NOW

  306. So… In the artwork where Clary is kissing someone, my first thought was, “ok, Jace and Clary are kissing passionately”. And then… I saw the bracelet on the boy. Did anyone else notice that? Could it… not be Jace? Could it be Sebastian? We know he’s the one with the bracelet, he is wearing it to cover up the cut! Could it be?
    Personaly, I have absolutely no problem with the two of them getting together. So what if they’re siblings? I kind of got over that reading the first books. I didn’t mind her being in love with her brother when Jace was supposed to be him. Why should I mind about Sebastian? After all, he is just her brother by blood. They didn’t grow up together or anything. That, in my mind, would be grose. But she just met him a little while ago. To my point of view, that makes him fare game.
    (Because we’re talking about litterature, of course. In real life, I don’t know how I’d react).

  307. Did anyone notice that it said that Clary’s brother had green eyes? I’m going crazy trying to figure out why… Clary’s a Shadowhunter: she can’t be fooled by glamors; fey illusions don’t work on her; she has angel blood in her, how would someone take her memories?????…Ms. Claire, I’m going insane. HELP!

  308. My Real Name is Isabelle Wood.......... No Joke says:

    Omg “When did Brother Zachariah get hot?” LOLOL infernal devices……

  309. i am realy worried about magnus. think he is going to die on cohf! cause there is the snippet where sebastian says:”your boyfriend is dead, thought you might whang to know” i think he is talking to alec there. and that is way in the seasons picture of cassandra jean magnus is not in the picture of the dark artifics and in the bane chronicles the last chapter “magnus’ note” is like his last note to alec with all his history(witch alec always wanted to know)

  310. I cant wait im sooo excited

  311. thinking about it now, I think snippet 9 is just a dream where clary pictures a normal brother

  312. OMG I LOVE THIS :D :D :D :D

  313. Omg!!!!I can’t wait to read the book. Dying to read it.I wish I could be reading it right now :(♥. X

  314. Bex Fairchild says:

    Ugh! Why must we wait till May 2014 for the book?

  315. Wtf simons sacrfice?come on cassandra nooooo

  316. I’m convinced that Simon dies and in the pic, Sebastian is talking to Isabelle.

  317. Julie Kjørum Røtne says:

    Oh feelings will be like a rollercoaster when I read this book. One secound I will laugh so hard I’ll probably fall out of my chair. The next moment I’ll probably cry my eyes out..

  318. Simon is already dead, his heart’s not longer beating since he got a vampire. He’s not longer alive but he excists.
    Maybe she just wants to confuse us ;)

  319. CassieLuvsWill4Ever says:


  320. what if…what if snippet #6 was about Jonathan and Clary. If he can alter her memories like he does in snippet #9, who knows what else he might be able to do.
    scary thought.

  321. but how do you know he altered her memories in snippet 9?

    • Well, she’s staring RIGHT INTO HIS EYES (green eyes) and remembers nothing of how she used to hate him. “He’s your brother. He’s your brother, and he’s always taken care of you.” I don’t know why but that kind of screams “memory alteration!” at me. Is there another way that that could happen that I’m overlooking?
      That sounded harsher than I intended it.

  322. In picture 3, is that Isabelle and Simon? Or someone else?

  323. god only knows… and apperently Cassie


  325. I’m 11 and read all TMI books :) I’m dying waiting for CoLS :(

    • Electra Storm says:

      Sadie I’m 11 as well!!! Have you read TID?? You’d love it, trust me. If I did and we r the same age, then I don’t see why you wouldn’t. :)

  326. ok in response to TEAM WILL HERONDALE’s comment may I just say once and for that Tessa IS. NOT. A. SLUT. Its no different than a widow getting remarried. ESPECIALLY scince she waited 100 YEARS. cut the girl some slack

  327. Rowena Drake says:

    To Emily’s last comment: No. Never. Isabelle never would.

  328. im not quite sure after reading all this how im meant to wait for city of heavenly fire to come out D: and its the last book!! its soo sad. Love this series!!x

  329. OMG!!!!!!! Tessa going to be in City Of Heavenly Fire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes I’m so so so happy cus Cassandra said that Jem will be in it but she wasn’t sure if Tessa would!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  330. I’m really sure that I going to die when Cohf will be realize, specially in the part of ‘Simon’s Sacrifice’ x.x

  331. *spoiler- unless you’ve read TID*

    Meet TESSA?!? Jace will meet his, great great great great great grandma?? Oh god :o

    • OMG.t.i.d.fanForever11-12 says:

      I wonder if it is going to be like SO cool or if it is going to be akward ;(

  332. Monchanok says:


  333. I cannot wait to read CoHF! Counting down the days!

  334. i really really really reallly can’t wait until may.


  336. Oh my gosh what the hell does she mean by Simons sacrifice? And who kised who, but what I can’t wit for is when Jocelyn introduces TESSA to Clary omg I can not wait

  337. OMG!!!!!!!!!
    1: WHAT?!?! #9 – what the heck did Sebastian do!!!! It really seems like he brainwashed Clary or something!!!
    2: #6 – I know everyone’s probably freaking out about Sebastian’s admirer and thinking it could be like the Seelie Queen (which I think it could) but didn’t he turn all those shadowhunters like Amatis (weep) evil with Lilth’s blood in CoLS? couldn’t it be one of them who like totally forgot everything about themselves and Sebastian convinced them that the other shadowhunters were jerks? that would explain why she “had never thought she would find one whose personality she could stand for more than five minutes, until Sebastian.”

    • Also, I am sooooo curious about #10 because I LOVE jem and I am scared for Simon bcuz of #15 – I think he might be one of the 6 characters to die. :(

    • It is also a possibility that the admirer is clary. Not the way everyone is freaking out about though.we all know that clary gets brainwashed by Sebastian, so maybe he even made her have a twisted sense of attraction towards him. ( yuck!) oh! This is gonna be interesting!!!:D

  338. Electra Storm says:

    Why in one of the snippets does Clary seem under Sebastian’s influence??? Please tell me it isn’t true…..

  339. Electra Storm says:

    I totally agree with WithTheBlueEyes about Tessa, Jem, and Will. Plus, both of them are Immortal.

  340. Electra Storm says:

    Clary and Isabelle should be Parabatai! Emma Carstairs can be Parabatai with somebody so why can’t Isabelle and Clary?? And Isabelle and Clary always protect each other and Isabelle owes Clary her life for saving Jace in City of Glass.

  341. Ummm jace better not die and Alec and Magnus really need to get back together! Can’t wait for it to come out! It needs to be here before may 27 of next year that’s to far away


  343. Rowena Drake says:

    Electra Storm, most people don’t have a parabtatai. Also, Isabelle don’t owes Clary her life, Jace does. Clary brought JACE back to life, not Isabelle.

  344. ;D

  345. New snippet released today!:
    “The way Magnus’ breath had sounded, rattling in his chest, before he said his father’s name.”
    Sounds like Magnus is dying.
    @#**^$%#^@$$&!!!!!! Magnus can’t die!! He’s one of my favorite characters!!!! GRRRRRR…….

  346. OMG!!!!! I just got the email with the new snippet!!!! Every snippet just gives me a heart attack!!! “is that a bit dramatic?? Oh well” sorry about spellings!!!!!!!

  347. Omg I hope nobody dies it will be so sad I almost died when I found out Jem was dying

  348. i just read the snippets and now i am dying i just wish may would come so i can read the book and then cry about it when im done

  349. i feel like jace and clary are gonna breakup but just the thought of it makes me scared i am really confused now and dont know what to do?

  350. i think magnus’ dad is Lucifer.

  351. I really hope they don’t break up ill be so sad I can’t wait intill the book comes out

  352. Read the responses from magnus’ father snippet someone explains who his father could be.

  353. I no a lot of people want Sebastian to have a happy ending, but I’m sorry I want him dead, I will not be able to finish the book or even look at it without hating it if Sebastian doesn’t die. he’s just done to many wrong things like hitting Isabelle on the head, trying to kill Jace, kissing clary when he knew she was his sister, stabbing Luke, killing Hodge just when he was going to tell Jace the truth about himself and killing max!!!! And if that isn’t enough of a reason I don’t know what is!!!

  354. Ikr sebastion does not deserve a happy ending


  356. These r totally keeping me sain during the break between books. Thank God sumthing can :)

  357. At first I thought Brother Zachariah was Stephen Herondale… then I read Clockwork Princess and realised it was Jem, but then I finished reading it and realised Jem was not a Silence Brother anymore… And then Isabelle says that Brother Zachariah is hot… I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO THINK!! It’s really confusing, specially by the fact that JEM WAS NOT A SILENCE BROTHER ANYMORE!! He was mortal again… but Cassandra Clare says it is possible that he appears in CoHF BUT HE WAS NOT IMMORTAL ANYMORE!!! I’M FREAKING OUT HELP!!!!! CAN SOMEONE TELLS ME I’M NOT GOING CRAZY PLEASE?!? But it makes sense, though…

    • when jem isn’t a silent brother its like 2008 so there’s a cure for him so he doesn’t need to be a silent brother anymore. but he needed to be a silent brother to live, it says it in clockwork princess, and at the end of the book Tessa and Jem are together. And clary meats Tessa so Jem will be in the book again.

  358. i read something on twitter that cassie posted and she said that there was going to be marriage in cohf and Im thinking that jace and clary might get married or she might just be referring to joclyne and luke?

  359. jocelyn sorry

  360. most likely jocelyn & luke.

  361. Cassie said she will not make Clary & Jace get Marrie. She can’t see it

  362. i think it would be really cute if they did jace and clary are my favorite part of the book but thats probably not going to happen

    • A BIG Fan says:

      they are going to marry each other… :D she said they sort of get married but really if they DO get married she wouldn’t say it because it would be a big spoiler. It could also mean they get the love runes Shadowhunters use when they get married without the ceremony.

  363. i do really hope that either jace or clary kills sebastian tho

  364. I’m so excited for this, but I can’t imagine Tessa being in it without Will! I’m sorry, Twill shipper forever!

  365. A BIG Fan says:

    WHERE IS MY BOOK? -__-

  366. OMG I love this so much!!!! I can’t wait until May 2014!!!!!! But it’s so far…….

  367. Chairman Meow says:

    I can’t bare for any of the main characters to die 😓

  368. i really am scared that cohf is gonna break my heart but at the same time i really wanna read it!!!!!!

  369. from the looks of thing in snippet number nine it sound like clary is thinking that her brother as if she loves him but at the same time she was saying that “hes always been there for u ” so i think that sebastian has clary under a spell or something

  370. By Emma do they mean Emma Bayliss?

  371. mynameismyname says:

    @ Emmett
    No, It’s Emma Carstairs.

  372. blue daydream says:

    im sure clary and jace are on a beach. they are. they are. THEY ARE!!!!

  373. blue daydream says:

    in the spoilery art. look at it carefully, and tell me they arent

  374. you forgot to add this one: person 1 ” Well it’s a bit ironic isn’t it?” person 2: “what do u mean?” person 1: “all that effort it took to convince u i wasnt in love with u and yet here i am dying in your arms”. or something like that… and it also had art with it

  375. Rowena Drake says:

    This spinet can be from TDA, so I suppose that’s why it’s not here. Also, the art isn’t official.

  376. WHO’S BOYFRIEND DIES! and if Simon izzy Alec magnus Luke clary or jace die i’m gonna cry. cant wait for COHF #obsessed

  377. please tell me its Simon izzys kissing in the picture or that’s just horrible and i hope magnus and Alec get back together

  378. Just read a comment about Chairman Meow being more than we think… maybe he is a human (or downworlder, shadowhunter, something) and Magnus turned him in to a cat but now he doesn’t know how to turn him back cuz something went wrong.. and Cassie said that he wouldn’t die , but she didn’t say that he would not kill anyone.. maybe he is evil :O

  379. Someone’s boyfriend dies.. and we see Isabelle kissing a BLOND boy. 1. Simon painted his hair 2. Simon died and Izzy found a new boy 3. they broke up :'(

  380. Lol when jace and clary are kidding I am now convinced that they are on a beach!. I wouldn’t of noticed this if blue daydream hadn’t said it omg

  381. Kissing sry

  382. Tessa and Jem will be in CoHF. Emma Carstairs is the main character in the Dark Artifices. Emma’s parents died during the war. This men’s that Tessa and Jem will die!

    • Jem and Tessa arent Emma’s parents. Her parents are John and Cordelia Carstairs. And anyway Emma is twelve in CoHF and Jem isnt unsilentbrotherified until probably during this book(my theory because of the Izzy snippet line that was something like “when did Brother Zachariah get hot?”) so It would not be possible for Jem and Tessa to have a twelve year old daughter, because silent brothers cant have kids

  383. I really love Will and Tessa together but I like Jem and Tessa . I could never choose my favorite between the CarstIrs and Herondale boys. I am also very glad to see that I am not the only person who started to cry when reading that. Magnus and Alex are my very favorite couple and charecters I love them so much and my heart breaks for them. I love the fact that she brought Tessa and Jem into the story. Omg Omg I am so excited to read it I feel like my heart my pound out of my chest. And I swear to god if they kill Magnus or Alec I will cry forever!!!!! Especially if they don’t get back together first that would be so awful

  384. I really hope they don’t cancel city of ashes movie

    • Tessa gray says:

      Yeh me to but the review said that they have not cancelled it they have just prosponed it becouse the script they had wasn’t all that true to the book and they are making it a lot truer to the book !!! I mean I would rather have a movie that is true to the book and it come out a little later than a movie that is no way near the book and comes out in a couple of months …. I dunno bout other ppl but … I hope i was helpful :)

    • Me to because that would suck I loved the first one and I want to see the next movie I missed a day of school just to see the first movie

      • Luvbooks says:

        You loved the first movie? I dunno…I thought it was sort of ruined because jace looks sooooooo ugly in it!! Alex pettyfer would have been much better…

  385. Tessa gray says:

    I know cassie has not made any hints towards it but she did say some people are gonna die ….. :( but I really hope she does not kill jem or tessa ! I love jem and tessa .. I can relate to tessa , I have brown hair and gray eyes hehehehe and I love books and have read a tale of two city’s a lot and my worst sin is also curiosity hahHa :p oh I also love will and all her charecters ! I really hope malec get back together !!! … Sorry I’m rambling on but cassie please please PLEASE ! Don’t kill jem I cried in cp2when I thought jem had died and I was soooo Rez Ives that he was alive even if he was a silent brother … That just means that tessa and jem will live forva yay :). Love all your books cassie !!

  386. Ikr I was so sad when I thought Jem died. So u like tale of two cities

  387. Tessa gray says:

    Yeh I love a tale of two city’s I have read every book that tessa mentions in the books hehehehe

  388. Tessa gray says:

    By the angel I can’t wait till may !!!! I have to read more about jem ( aka brother zachariah ) when Eva I read of a or cols and I read brothers zachariahs parts I always imagine him as jem ! I cried when clary says to brother z is there anyone you would have died for and he says 2 people and my mind went straight back to tessa and will and the epilogue in cp2 at leat tessas still alive and I know they will be together again !! They will !!!i can’t wait till tessa and jace meet cus he’s her great great grandmother !!! that’s gonna be a funny scene hehehe

  389. I am soo exited for May but I don’t know if I should be prepared cause I know someone important is gonna die and i luuuuuv all of the characters!!! I just really want Sebastian to die!!!

  390. Tessa gray says:

    Yes you should be prepared , it’s gonna be a hard book to read but I can’t wait for it ……. By the angel I dunno wether to be exited or upset !!

  391. I wish Cassandra Clare would write more books in the series because I do NOT want the series to end

    • Tessa gray says:

      Well she has started a new book sereis called the dark artifix and it’s aout Emma cairstairs ( not tessa and jems daughter ) so. That could be good

  392. Madison.. says:

    I love this.. but.. I just.. it needs to be in my hand.. right now, so that I know the context!! I don’t want it to end!!

  393. I am SO nervous about who’s going to die this is by far the best series I’ve read:)

  394. tessa gray says:

    Oh I can’t wait for this book !!!! I can’t wait to see jem and tessa !! 4eva jessa !! …. Not that I don’t love will 2 ! But I just love jem !!! I know its impossible but I really hope no one dies !!I really don’t want cassie to kill jem or tessa !!!

  395. Cassie Clare Lover says:

    omg who is kissing isabelle? it better not be bro zacharia!!!!

  396. It’s not brother Zachariah. He’s dark hair

  397. Clarissa_Morganstern_Rules says:

    I can’t wait until May 2014, IT’S SO LONG AWAY!!!!!!!!!! :'( I really hope no one dies but I really hope Jace or Clary don’t die. We don’t need another allegiant!

  398. I, for one, think that reading CoHF before Clockwork angel is stupid and pointless. These people have 7 months to read them. What idiot is going to wait to read the PREQUEL. Sequel, I understand. Prequel no. just no. get the f— off your butts and READ THE BOOKS.

  399. I have a question for everyone that has read the clockwork series if it was your book would u make Tess and Mem be together or will and Tess ???????

  400. Jem sry

  401. Both:)

  402. Jem and Tessa

  403. Ehhhh
    Me how ever many there too! Cassie clare was the one who inspired me to actualy try to write something for others to read, i mean i always lived to write but her…..
    Best books ever uggggg i love them all and i am going to cry when there over!
    Jem and tessa r in it!!!
    And emma and julian!!!! Eeeeehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  404. Jenny Herondale says:

    ok am freaking out here we might have a hurricane in Liverpool and i might die so i wont get a chance to read the Last book. i totally think that Jem and Tessa are going to be in CoHF cuz why would Clary’s mum be introducing Tessa to Clary and why would Isabella say that brother Z ( james a.ka jem) is hot. OMG I CANT WAIT FOR THE BOOK ANYMORE AM SO EXCITED AND I HOPE THAT CLARY,JACE.ALEC,ISABELLA,SIMON,MAIA,JORDAN AND MAGNUS DONT DIE BASICALLY ALL OF THE CHARACTERS THAT AREN’T EVIL AHHHH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AM LIKE FREAKING OUT HERE I WANT THE BOOK IN MY HANDS NOWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! cassie is torturing me HELPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  405. In clockwork princess am I the only one who thinks that Gideon and Sophie are kind a cute couple???

  406. I am just now finishing clockwork princess and I cried soooooo much at the end when she said that will died😰😥😪😓😰!!he and Tessa are as cute a couple as jace and clary and I am now balling my eyes out!!😰 does anyone agree??

  407. Tessa gray says:

    I cried so mutch to but at least jem and tessa are together now :) :(

  408. Jem sorry

    • Tessa gray says:

      Well jem is a silent bro so he will live for Eva almost but Magnus is still looking for a cure ( I think ) and I think that Magnus will find camille and get the spell that she was gonna give to Alec to make him not immortal and Ithink that tessa will use it so she and jem can grow old together . We already know that jem finds a cure becouse of the epilogue in cp2 ,

  409. Happy Halloween lol

  410. Tessa gray says:

    Did anyone dress up as a shadow hunter for Halloween ??? Hahahahaha

  411. I did I was Isabelle

  412. Are these in chronological order?

  413. I don’t think so

  414. I just watched this movie called safe haven and for some reason it kinda reminded me of TMI

  415. Scarlett Isabella says:

    Am I the only person who loves Tessa & Will more than Tessa & Jem? Will was Tessa’s first love so of course she was always going to be somewhat in love with him and I’m so glad they ended up together. I love Jem too but I feel that Will and Tessa were the one and only and I cried so hard whilst reading about Will’s death, knowing that most characters we loved during the TID series died leaving Tessa behind makes my heart break! Please stop slut shaming Tessa, she loved both of them. Learn the definition of the word before throwing it around. She’s a sophisticated badass heroine, not a slut.

    Cassie said that six people we know by name will die in COHF and I think Alec will be one of them. I really, really hope that Jace, Isabelle, or Simon don’t die because they are so perfect ahhh and I’m so looking forward to when Clary meets Tessa!

    • I sooooooo agree that will and Tessa were better than Jem and Tessa I cried sooooo much when I found out that will died and Tessa is absolutely not a slut it’s just like twilight Bella was in love with both Edward and Jacob but I didn’t hear anyone calling her a slut so just because she loves 2 different people at the same time doesn’t mean that she is a slut!

    • Lena Duchannes says:

      I hated the epilogue of Clockwork Princess for that one reason. Will and Tessa were perfect, and I liked Jem, but Will was my favorite. I was so happy up until the epilogue, and my ship was sunk. I completely lost it, and Jem coming back into the picture was like mocking my depression. I hated it.

  416. I agree with everything you said, but I have to say that I prefer Jem and Tessa, but that’s just my opinion!!! And great response for the “Tessa’s a slut”

    • I love Jem too! and how you can say that about tessa just amazes me. she is totally right to love both of them. the alternative is breaking Jem’s heart after he waited like a century for a cure so he could be with her.

  417. Jalynn Shadowhunter says:

    Cassandra Clare has inspired me in many ways. I have read all of the mortal instruments books and am anticipating the next book series she writes.

  418. Is that last one Emma Baylis? I just started reading the infernal devices so I thought maybe there was a connection.

  419. Cassandra really is phenomenal. She deserves all the praise she gets and, by the look of these comments, she has inspired many young, aspiring writers. She taught me something without even knowing it, and that really helped me understand whet I want to do the rest of my life.

  420. Which is?? Sorry but ur comment has really intrigued me!!! What do u want to be??

  421. Zayah Leslendé says:

    I want to know who’s on the front!!!

  422. I am soooo happy that the 6. part is coming out at the 01.04.2014!
    I love it to read the books and the story is realy good.

  423. No I I wish I did and Mary what’s coming out ?? Oh and also who agrees that tessa and jem should have a hPpy ending yeh plz reply with what you think I like talking to all you ppl !! Haha :D

  424. I agree, I love Jem and Tessa, when I first heard of Emma I thought and hoped she was Jem and Tessa’s daughter!!! But sadly no

  425. CAN’T WAIT!!!

  426. Irk but when I heard that there was a Emma carstairs I kinda panicked becouse the time difference would not have made sence and I was like I hope jem didn’t fall in love with someone else .. Cus that would have been soo sad !!!

  427. Omg I’m so scared that jem and tessa are gonna die in COHF . But I do kind of have a theory becouse in cp2 in the epilogue jem says he would tell tessa about the lightwoods ( meaning Alec and Isabelle ) and cassie says that TMI was set in 2007 and the epilogue was set in 2008 so I thought that they must have lived “.well that’s what I hoped …..

  428. SIMON’S SACRIFICE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
    NO. JUST NO. and did izzy kiss Sebastian???? And why did Sebastian say your boyfriend’s dead…..AND WHY DID MAGNUS SAY EVERYONE IS DEAD?!?!?!!?!?!?

  429. I really can’t wait till city of heavenly fire comes out. So excited. I really can’t wait to see what Simons sacrifice is. Ekkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!!!!!!!
