Cassandra Clare shares first CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE snippet

Cassandra Clare and her oh-so-generous self was in the giving mood today and decided to let fans choose what snippet she would share--CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE, CLOCKWORK PRINCESS or a mystery snippet. CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE, due out in March 2014, eventually won out. Check out the very first snippet from CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE, the conclusion to the internationally bestselling THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS series, which features Jace and Alec:

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.”

What do you guys think? Isn’t it great to have Jace back? Sound off in the comments!

    im really excited about the snippet about Jace nd Alec, but the fact that we FINALLY have a CoHF snippet excites me BEYOND anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀

  7. That was Great!! I love Jace and Alec ❤ soo Sad that Alec and Magnus broke up 😦

  8. This is such a great snippet! Glad to see some from CoHF! Alec, you poor boy. And Jace, amusing as ever!


  10. i really hate waiting till 2014 to read this. i mean i was seventeen when i started liking the series, now i will read the last when i am in my twenties, not cool. But the snippet was great, its no doubt going to be great and i am looking forward to reading it, though its not even 2013 yet, i hope she can change the date to maybe perhaps end of 2013,FINEGRS CROSS!

    • I know how you feel- I was twelve when i discovered the series, and by the time COHF comes out, I’ll be almost seventeen. That’s pretty much all of my teenage years- it’s going to be such a shock when it ends!

    • please please please please please hurry up with that last book CoHF!!!!!!!! i only started reading them about a month ago. so far i’ve read the first five and i absolutely HATE waiting for books! (though its totally worth it) Im looking forward to 2014!!!!!

    HAHAHA! Jace was just giving Alec a little push to forget about his ex boyfriend Magnus. Even if it did lead him into breaking Alec’s phone. XD

  12. Alec and Magnus broke up make me kinda miserable…like, very miserable. I just finished the book today and all the wounds are still fresh.

    The snniped is hilarious, made me smile. I really want to know more of this pair, I think we have not seen too much about them as parabatais, as brothers, and as best friends.

    Love you Cassie!


  14. Omg just a classic Jace/Alec moment! So cute! I was smiling for like five minutes straight after reading it! 🙂

    I’m just sad that Alec is so scared he hangs up, but misses Magnus that much.

  16. aaaw Jalec moment! So cuuute, i missed those two together! I hope we will se more of them in CoHF! and I cross my fingers that Malec in the end we will be together – LOVE THEM!!

  17. Ive been waiting so long for a snippet for cohf luv it yay n cant wait for the book tmi is the best series ever:)

  18. Finally a snippet of City of Heavenly Fire came out!!!! It’s so great to have Jace back! Although Alec still really misses Magnus!

  19. I was wondering do you think because there was a way to make magnus mortal that simon could be made mortal too? he and izzy would have more of a chance and who knows could be the start of a Lewis shadowhunter family 🙂

    • I had not thought about that!…well, It would be great, but here is the thing…Simon is not only inmortal, he is a vampire. Could exist a spell to take the inmortality away without erase the rest of him?…the same with Magnus. Will Magnus still being a warlock?

      • I wouldn’t want magnus to become mortal, the hope he is in TDA fills me with joy, but simon becoming mortal and not being a vampire would be great, he could get his mum back and not have to worry about being left behind.. I hate the thought of Simon being left all alone in years to come.. (even though he is a fictional character) 🙂

    • Me either I never thought of that cant wait for this book its way to far away hope it comes out early

  23. Awww I almost started crying. It’s so good to have them back ❤

  24. SOOO glad to finally have something to chew onto until fricken 2014 comes. LOVE having the real Jace back! Reading this made me realize how much I missed him. ❤ lol And awww. Poor Alec! Who DIDN'T cry like a baby having its toy taken away when Magnus said they were done? They're the first real gay couple I couldn't help but LOVE and now they just broke up! Though you gotta admit we all saw that coming sooner or later in the 4th and 5th book. Just hope Magnus and Alec mend their differences and get back together!

    Hope we can see more snippets in the future. Say maybe Jace and Clary this time anyone?
