Jace and Jordan talk war in new CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE snippet

As a reward for @MortalMovie, the official MORTAL INSTRUMENTS movie Twitterreaching 5,000 followers, Cassandra Clare shared a new snippet from CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE, the conclusion to THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS.

The snippet features Jace and Jordan and the topic of war.

“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.”

    Lol, I ❤ Jace!But that doesn't seem much like him, he is usually humorous and funny but in this snippet he seems serious. Kind of like before he met Clary and all this began. Still ❤ that were getting CoHF snippets, and its actually the first snippet (CP2 snippets included) we got in a while.

    Ppfffft. Oh jace, XD

  4. He does seem serious but luv jace 🙂

  5. oh jace, of course killing things brings you peace and that clary(though you worry about her well being) what I meant to say was being a warrior is a major part of you but so is your love for clary and those you care about and clary is a major part and what you’ll do for her and the tmi trailer is amazing! I’ve seen it four times! jamie you a regreat actor and great as Jace and everything that comes of your mouth sounds very appealing and you add to the appeal of jace though he already has alot! lily you are amazing and the perfect clary jem, you rock as our izzy and robbie you have knocked it out of the part and kevin and everyone sweet! oh and also i think i know why the have guns, it fends off the vampire temporaily , it distracts them enough and the flame thrower (e.g. fire) for vampires i’m sure izzy still has her whip hopefully

      i meant to say that and clary. also it shows that maybe Jace will find a way to use his new power aganist sebastian? also, i hope he’s still able to express his affection for clary

  6. These comments are sooooo Jace!!! I love Jace. I can picture Jamie as Jace saying them 🙂 I love you too Jamie!!!
    I can’t wait for this book to come out, I can’t wait for the COB movie to come out, I can’t wait for more trailers to come out, How am I ever gonna be able to wait for all this? I have no idea. I’ll just keep re-reading the books and re-watchingthe trailer I guess. Thanks Cassie for the snippets!!!!!

  7. These are my favorite kind of snippets: really long. And of course Jace is totally awesome:))

  8. Lmao! God, how can you not love Jace? He’s too funny. Cassie has such a wonderful way of interacting the characters.

    When is CoHF coming out again?

  9. Great snippet as always, but its funny when I’ve read lines by Jace before its always been in an American accent in my head. After seeing the trailer I was reading all Jace’s lines in an English accent!!
