  1. TITLE TOO SPOILERY ?! The hell ?! >________<
    GOsh I AM SOOO EXCITED ! 70 DAYS ?! UGH. 70 DAYS of waiting is . . . is. . . unexplainable. I'm happy that WE'RE ALMOST THERE but 70 days seems like a very long time. XD
    Short compared to waiting for years now. :3

    I'M SOOO EXCITED! Especially to read the Chapter about "Wild Hunt" thingy, which actually is another term for CAIN'S HUNT. (Thanks Wikipedia XD)
    And I foresee that I'm gonna hate Sebastian more :3


  2. I died… to all of them

    Chapter to spoilery

  3. Oh, god. I’m so excited and nervous! All i want is Jace and Clary together!

  4. Chapter nineteen… do jace and clary finally do the dirty? Im so excited! They all look really good… 70 days… why cant it be 7?

  5. “You did it you slept with him”
    its either Jace and Clary or Isabel and Simon

  6. Anyone else feel like chapter seven either refers to Jace or Alec? They’re the ones whose eyes are described in greatest detail, I can’t help but think that’s important. (Those are pearls that were his EYES.)

  7. Chapter Nineteen; Love and Blood

    “You did,” he said. “You slept with him.”

    I am very curious about this! LOL

  8. This book is actually coming out in just over 2 months!!!
    I remember when I finished reading CoFA and *that* cliffhanger and thought: “OMFG, there’s over a year wait for CoLS!!! HOW WILL I MAKE IT THROUGH??!!”
    And now, with all the chapter titles, beautiful cover, special outtakes and teasers, this book is becoming more and more tangible every day 🙂
    Well, what I’m trying to say is “Yippeee!!!”

  9. I think that Camille is gonna try to make Alec immortal in chapter 4…. Then in chapter 11 he says he doesn’t think he can do it….
    I hope he says no to Camille I want Magnus and Alec together but whatever she’s planning, it cannot be good for them.
