    omg! That could be so many people! Alec?Magnus?Simon?Maia’s boyfriend(forgot his name)?Maybe Jace? Actually I highly doubt that last one…I have no idea! So excited for this to come out now!! I must know!!! ;D

      At least it can’t be Magnus, because he has to be in TDA… but Omigosh!!!! what the heck!!! ahhh!! Jace, or Alec, or Jordan, or SIMON, or,or,or!!!!! Ahhh!!!!! Cassie…… you better write that book faster becuz us fans are coming for you…. XD

    • Maia’s boyfriend is Kyle/Jordan 🙂

  5. Simon, I bet he’s talking to Isabelle. =[

    • NOOO. Why would you even bet about sth like that? Simon? 😦 The “not him” cracking voice line Simon?
      I’m sorry I’m just too hurt by this.
      Each possibility is worse than the previous. And I don’t even want to think about the “since Jace Lightwood” line about Emma from TDA. Alec?

      • Yeah I remember reading that line about Emma too…I don’t like it at all. Makes me nervous ):

  6. Omg omg omg!
    Who’s boyfriend?
    My first thought is about Jace :S or Simon >__<

  7. hmmm, yup. He needs to go on a time out :/

  8. Is it Alec, Magnus, Simon, Jace, or…Luke? THIS IS SO BAD !!!!

  9. If it’s Simon, technically, it’s true. Simon=Vampire. Vampire=Dead/Undead

  10. or is it simon DDD:::::

  11. NO I LOVE CLACE AND SIZZY!!!!!! OR IS IT MALEC?????? OMG DYING

  12. Or Jordan. I hate everything about this. I just hope that by the end of CoHF we’ll be rid of Sebastian. For good this time.

    • Or Alec. Or Magnus. Or Simon. Or Jace. Or someone new?
      Cassie is just pure evil. She posts Malec, Clace and Sizzy bliss first and then have us mourn for all them.

  13. Has to be Jace. Sebastian wouldnt taunt anyone but Clary. Hes got a sick pleasure in her pain.

    • Or Izzy. Remember when he was supposedly Sebastian (CoG)?
      Plus her boyfriend is a downworlder. Oh my God I hate this

    • Michelle // May 1, 2013 at 1:21 AM // Reply

      I have a feeling it’s Jace too… just look at his evil face… he has to be talking to Clary… I’m off to cry now…

  14. Why did I immediately think of Jordan when I saw this?? I don’t think it’s Simon, Alec, or Jace.. Noooo 😦 No more deaths!

  15. Or, Sebastian could just be saying that as we all know that’s the kind of thing he would do. Maybe he thought he killed that boyfriend but he really didn’t. Or it could be like when Jace died and Clary brought him back and whoever died will be brought back somehow…….please Cassie, we don’t want any of the characters to loose their nearest and dearest love!!!

    My money’s on Alec being dead. The way it’s written sounds as though it’s sort of off hand. If it was to Clary about Jace, I think he would drag it out and really talk about how he’s dead and why he’s dead and exactly how dead he his and what colour his boxers were (he checked. They’re not briefs). By saying the word boyfriend, he seems to be making a point, and Jonathan does points.
    If it was Simon, he’d make the point of him being a vampire (ie; By the way, the Daylighter’s dead. Thought you should know).
    Which leaves Alec, and the only point to be made about him is that… he is a boyfriend to a man/boy. Also, this follows the train of thought about Alec being just a small part of Magnus’s enormous life (Thought you should know). It’s very ‘not that it matters in the grand scheme of things, but let’s twist the knife a little riiiiight here’.
    But then, what do I know?

    • Ouch. That went straight through the heart. Thanks. :))

    • Either Alec or Magnus. You made a good point . I actually think I would be more upset if it was Magnus or Alec. I love them both so much ): I hope to god it’s not either of them!

    • I sure hope ur right if its jace i won’t be able to stand it. Jace CANNOT DIE AGAIN!!! I REFUSE TO EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!!

  17. Luv Sebastian! Totally my boyfriend

  18. i think its jordan…. omg what if its magnus nooo or jace or simon so many possibilities

  19. I literally started to majorly tear when I saw this. WHO’S BOYFRIEND????? WHO WHO WHO WHO WHO WHO WHO?????

  20. I REALLY THINK IT’S MAGNUS, JUST THINK ABOUT IT. MALEC IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND IT HURTS ME SO MUCH TO SAY THIS BUT SOMETIMES IS LIKE THERES NO HOPE DUE TO THE INMORTALITY ISSUE. AND MAYBE THATS WHY CASSIE GIVE US THE BANE CHRONICLES, TO COMPENSE HIS DEATH, SINCE HE HAS LIVE SO LONG, AND CC ALSO TOLD US THAT HE WAS NOT MEANT TO BE A PRINCIPAL CHARACTER IN THE FIRST BOOKS… REMEMBER CASSIE SAID THAT A CHARACTER OTHER THAN MAGNUS BANE WILL BE IN TDA, MAYBE HE WILL NOT BE AT ALL?? IF THAT IS, WHY??? OMMMGG I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO. WE CANNOT LOSE HIM!!! D’:

  21. OMFG. I really hope its not jace, it can’t be simon…mark of cain. Has he still got tht?? idk. Maybe Alec or Magnus….Jeez this is heart breaking!!!! I hate Sebastian

  22. It can’t be Magnus cuz Jem mentioned that he and his friends found a cure for him in Clockwork Princess.

    • What if Magnus gave Jem his immortality so he won’t have to go on an eternity without Alec? *nope, i don’t think i can take this*

    • Yeah, but CP2 epilogue might be either during or after CoHF, so you really can’t tell.

      • shadowhunterboys4ever // May 1, 2013 at 8:33 PM //

        It’s after CoHF because in CP2’s epilogue it said 2008 and the events of the mortal instruments takes place in 2007

      • Yeah, I know I thought so too, though Cassie said that the Epilogue could be either during or after CoHF. Definitely before TDA. Maybe the events in CoHF span wider than the previous books and it actually ends 2008?

    • Yes, but I have a feeling that Clary and her rune powers might have something to do with that. But I desperately hope that it’s not Magnus! It would kill me to see him killed like that because he was immortal, and dying like that just seems to sudden.

  23. for Malec shippers – I think Alec will have a new boyfriend in the book and then he dies because Sebastian’s going to kill him and then Alec and Magnus will get back together and they will live happily ever after! OR since Magnus and Alec has broken up technically They’re not each other’s boyfriend so Sebastian can’t say that their boyfriend is dead.

    for Sizzy shippers – since they haven’t really defined their relationship, simon isn’t izzy’s boyfriend.

    which leaves us with Clace and Jordan/Maia

    Clace (hear me out first) – jace has heaven’s fire in him which means he could be brought back to life if he were the one Sebastian was talking about.

    Jordan/Maia – I’m sorry but sometimes sacrifices have to be made for the greater good. you will be rewarded in the next life. :))

  24. Oh my goodness!! it seems like he had a huge fight here! but who could take him on this far?? only jace can..
    please don’t let it be jace!!! :((

  25. Okay so I have major theories, nobody will read this but I have to put this somewhere.

    Alec: well it could be him but he wouldn’t be dead dead but like dead/dying, and Magnus would blow a gasket and do that thing (like Crowley in SP) and snap his fingers and there would be Sebastian on the walls (like its a friggin Tarantino movie) and he’ll be dying and Simon will turn him or magic will happen but there will be an immortal ALEC!

    Jordan: maybe he tried to be a hero or something and hot his ass nailed to the wall then Maia loses her shit…

    I don’t think it’s Jace, or Simon but if its one of the two it’s probably Simon because and then the goodbye thing could be Sizzy sinking!

    (SPOILER) Mark of Cain is gone, and Jace has the heavenly fire so probably a tough boat to sink!

  26. EmiMarie // May 1, 2013 at 2:55 AM // Reply

    All I could think about when I saw this is the time Jonathan revealed he wasn’t Sebastian and got totally disgusted by Alec. If he killed Magnus I can definately see him taunting him about it. And I don’t think it would matter to him that they broke up, saying ‘boyfriend’ anyway would just be rubbing salt in the wound. 😦
    On the other hand… We’re finding out who Magnus’ ultra-powerful-daemon-prince Father is soon, aren’t we? Maybe if he does die he won’t stay dead…

  27. I really don’t wanna know, what will cassie post after a half year 😦

    THIS SOO BETTER NOT BE JACE I LOVE HIM MORE THAN THE OTHERS!!! but nooo it cant be alec magunus SIMON!!! noooo this cant happen cassie what are you doing to us:”””””””””””””””””””( this book needs to come out like now AND SEB SO HAS TO DIE!!!!!

  29. IrishShowhuntersAnonymous // May 1, 2013 at 6:12 AM // Reply

    WHAT!!!!!!!! Cassie you did it again, I thought I was finished with all this freaking out after CP2……obviously not!! For some reason Magnus is coming to mind I don’t no why but I hope not!! Or Simon. I don’t think its Jordan he doesn’t really know Maia well enough to taunt her. I don’t think its Jace either I don’t think he would just brush Jace’s death off like that. I can’t wait that long to find out!!!

  30. JaceYourMine!! // May 1, 2013 at 6:13 AM // Reply

    i just have to quickly add that its totally unfair if clary has to lose jace i mean throughout the books shes lost him so many times in some wayy……i soo think its only fair they get a happy ending!! they’ve been through WAY TO MUCH PLEASEEEEE CASSIE!!!:(

    oh me feels are too hurt and confused right now!!! so many victims sebastian can kill but hopefully that person lives or that he’s lying or that the person resurrects from the dead.

  33. Good point. The Bane Chronicles do seem like a special devotion to a very beloved character who is to meet his demise and somewhat ease the whole fandom’s pain.
    And it definitely sounds like Magnus to sacrifice himself to cure Jem, not having to endure Alec’s death -after enduring too many- and die an honorable death on the rightful side, among Shadowhunters. But it is specifically stated that you cannot make a mortal immortal or vice versa and there is a great cost to be paid to take someone’s immortality, so even if Magnus saved Jem from his illness/addiction Jem is still a mortal.

    My immediate reaction was literally me gasping out loud in the middle of getting ready in the morning. WHO’S BOYFRIEND?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

  35. Maybe he’s talking to Maia. Or, better yet, he’s LYING! Please, please, please, Cassie Clare, tell me he’s lying!

  36. KikiLOVESJace // May 1, 2013 at 8:22 AM // Reply

    O.o
    Who’s boyfriend? Oh, by the angel. I’m scared and curious to know who’s boyfriend Jonathon killed.

  37. it has to be magnus i think because of the tweet she said once something about if he still is alive.

  38. TheFirstEvil // May 1, 2013 at 11:21 AM // Reply

    This could basically mean every male character.

  39. My first thought was that it’s Jace because I can imagine that Sebstian speaks with Clary about Jace, but i hope that’s not as I think…in the last bool I had thought that sebastian could be a little bit nicer because of his realationship with Jace, but now I don’t know what to do when he had killed Jace. But if it’s Alec, Magnus, Jordan or Simon i will be cry too…:(

  40. Well Cassandra Clare has said that she’d kill off five main characters. Could this be Jace or Magnus or Alec? Who knows which one… Well, Cassie obviously

  41. Mel Powers // May 1, 2013 at 12:37 PM // Reply

    I think it will be Luke that will die 😥

  42. Jace talking to Maureen about Sebastian

  43. It can be whether Simon, Jace, Alec, Magnus, Luke or Jordan, right?

  44. . I would be happy if it was some new couple entirely so I don’t care…if its Simon or Jace or Luke I will die!

  45. Sol Gonzalez // May 1, 2013 at 3:00 PM // Reply

    Puede estar hablando de cualquier personaje varón con novio/a o que Sebastian esté mintiendo (quiero creer que es lo segundo). No quiero sabeeerr quienes mueren (si es que alguien lo hace) :((

  46. This could mean anything!!!

  47. oh god. who could could it be? i really don’t want anyone to die. i mean it would suck if jordan died but it would suck more if simon, or jace, or mangus or alec died. or maybe sebstians just being cruel or thought he killed them.

  48. I don’t think it’s Jace. Seems a bit too obvious in my opinion. I have a pretty good gut feeling that it’s more of a supporting character. My money’s on it either being Simon, Jordan or Alec/Magnus. I remember how back in TDA and in the summary it mentions Emma being “being the best, fastest and deadliest Shadowhunter since Jace Lightwood” and a fan girl went all, “OMG! THIS CONFIRMS THAT JACE IS DEAD!!!” and CC firmly stated that just because there’s something “better than bread, doesn’t mean bread isn’t still out there” (or something like that anyhow) and implied Clace was still out there and celebrities in the new Shadowhunter world.

    Plus, seriously. If she were to kill off Jace then we, as the fans of the series, would be rendered no choice but to boycott the series. Don’t get me wrong, I love the series. But if she were to kill off Jace, I’d seriously be forced to burn my novels. It’s one thing to make a bold move and kill off a supporting character (example being Max), but to completely shoot yourself in the leg or head (this being killing off Jace or Alec/Magnus)… that seriously is just a stupid move. Well, at least to me I wouldn’t risk it. But maybe that’s just me.

    OMG he could be talking to anyone!!
    Magnus or Alec
    Clary
    Isabelle
    Maia
    Clary!! I would die if he was talking to Alec!
    D-I-E

  50. Come one guys . Ms. Clare is the QUEEN on the mind F*&Ck when she releases her spoilers…..Remember when she put up that the parabati no longer quote……it was true but totally not in any obvious or easily predictable way. As soon as I saw this I totally picture her rubbing her hands together like Mr.Burns…….yessss excellent…….. now were all here going nuts and its prob. nothing any of us could predict anyway! AND we get to wait almost a year to obsess about this……..well played Cassie. 🙂

  51. Well played? I LOVE IT!! LOL Reminds of a Star Trek Next Gen quote, “Well played, well played, Captain Picard. That move was worthy of a Romulan.” Maybe Cassie has pointed ears and green blood. haha

  52. OH ITS JAAAAAAAAAAACE BECAUSE SEB HATES CLARY AND IS JEALOUS OF THEIR RELATIONSSHIP OMG JAAAAAAAAAAAAACE

    Magnusssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss.

    It can’t be Jace . . . Sebastian wouldn’t say it so casually . . . Plus , it would be stupid to kill him off . Obviously every character is important , and has their place in these books , but to kill Jace would to be to go against everything that we’ve been building up to . . . Unless they die together . . . But that won’t happen . Plus , his heavenly fire is pretty kick-ass , so he’s safe . I thought Magnus was in TDA , but maybe I’m just assuming . . . But he’s been with us since the beginning ! He can’t leave ! And I don’t think it’s Alec . It could be Jordan , cuz he’s as important as Jessie was and we all know what happened to her . . . It can’t be Simon . I just love the concept of him and Clary as besties , and SIZZY !!! What if he’s talking to Maureen . . . Ya know , since she thinks that she’s his girl friend . . .

  55. Yeah, I agree. Though I won’t burn my books! But yeah, killing Jace, for Cassie, actually means killing her own writing career. I won’t be interested in investing either financially (by buying her future books) or emotionally (by worshipping her and her universe and the characters in it)
    But I just trust Cassie. So don’t fret! She won’t disappoint. 🙂

    i dont know why but my reaction was laughing wheni saw the picture..
    but its not jace because he is almost main chatacter, its not jordan beacuse sen doesnt really know him or maia, so it could be simon, alec or magnus… maybe even luke..

    • CROvalentina // June 9, 2013 at 3:57 PM // Reply

      well, jace is one of the main characters, and cassie said that in cohf one of the main characters will be dead. i hope it’s not jace, but everythings leads us to that conclusion

  57. It could be one of those times where you think they are dead but they are actually alive. I can only hope that this is one of those times. Cross your fingers.

  58. Tessaismyhero! // May 2, 2013 at 5:19 PM // Reply

    NO! It could be almost ANYONE!!! I am freaking out!!!!

  59. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FELLOW NEPHILIM, GET HIM!!!!!!!!

  60. Im thinking only 2 people this could be bout simon or alec 😦

  61. NO NO NO NO NO ONE WILL DIE. NOT ON MY WATCH. CASSIE, PLS WRITE FASTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! D:

  62. Wait, hold on . . . isn’t Luke considered as Jocelyn’s boyfriend? Because, even though they’re fiances and all, he’s kind of like her boyfriend . . .

  63. I may be the only one in the world that likes Sebastian but he’s been a naughty naughty boy…I will punish him when I get a chance, but I also know that he too will have to die. It’s the only way to complete the circle. I apologize in advance for any of his wrong doings, he was born this way..LOL… Seriously though, I’m not liking that someone’s boyfriend is dead…I’m going to need to take time off of work to mourn…i don’t think bereavment of fictional characters count but I’ll push for it.

  64. (Fingers Crossed) Please don’t be Jace.. Please don’t be Jace.. Please don’t be Jace..

  65. How do u guys even know if that was Sebastian/Jonathan saying to the mystery person ur boyfriend is dead………how can u be so sure?

    Oh and my money is that it is either Simon or magnes/ Alec. It can’t be jace or it will be world war 3 outside our doors. But still things are never as they seem.

    Hey guys who would u actually choose to die from all the choices if u had to choose. I would honestly choose Simon.

  66. I really do think it’s Luke… I mean, doesn’t Sebastian hate his mom.. and he hates Luke sooooo… *cries*

  67. OMGod! No! It could be anyone!
    I think it’s going to be Alac or Magnus! Noooooooo! But it could also be his mum, I can totally picture him talking to her, about how much he hates her and stuff, then as he’s about to leave he’s turns back. NOOOOoOo! I can’t handle this! I have spent the last few hours reading through the theories, and I just can, it’s impossible to know who it is. Anyone could die. I don’t want Magnus or Alac to die, MALAC!! I cried at the end of CoLS. poor MALAC!! And I would drown in my own tears if they Magnus or Alac died, they are so cute together, and I don’t think I could handle it! But it can’t be Simon or Luke, there too awesome! I love Simon, he is so adorable he’s a day lighter and Claris best friend. NO! I don’t think it would be Jace, because its Jace and he is way to good to be killed and if he was sabastion wouldn’t dismiss it so quickly! But it could be Jace, because Cassandra is just that evil, an sabastion is almost as good as jace and in the art he looks like he’s been is a big fight, Jace!!!!nooooooooo! . And then it could be Jonathan, or someone else!

    To many amazing character that could die! :””( And we have to wait till nest year! That’s to far away!!

    I absolutely love the mortal instraments series, and I can’t believe there’s only one more book!

  68. You guys… I got this theory from instagram and i cried over it…

    Clary was forced to watch Simon die… Then shes on the ground crying. Izzy, Alec and Jace come in the room and Jace is like “If you hurt her I swear you’ll die” but then Sebastian just says to Izzy “oh yeah. I thought you should know, your boyfriends dead. Then they freak out and kill Sebastian. Honestly tho CC said that 2 characters will die I think its almost obvious one is Sebby and one of them is probably Magnus or Simon because those characters are just so vulnerable bc their not super important

  69. If i had to choose from the options I’d choose anyone but Simon even Jace if i had to save one it would be Simon i love his character SO GODAMN MUCH!

  70. SIMON IS IMPORTANT HE AWESOME ^-^ I will save simon also, he way supporting to die…..also CC said that her fave is simon because he remind him as her I think I need check that again,
    Jace- like people said above me, everyone will go coco *fangirlly* if jace die. WAR WILL START
    Alec- he might die I mean, seb is might being talking to megus (I think I spell his name right) or…he died in war telling megus about his true feelings, so that means they separate and CC said a couple will separate
    Megus- he immortal..but might die or… His immorally dies and he becomes mortal, for in the picture it might be him but I doubt that
    Luke- it really possible because he and jos. Is still dating not fully wed yet and seb is angry at his mom that call revenge
    Kyle/Jordan- I think he will die in cohf but I think that not him in the picture, he dosent know seb so yeah..
    There are many thing possible CC want see us cry

  71. I read through some of the theories and on esaid its probaly jace thats dead because no on could fight do well with sebastian. But I think there was some kind of war and Jonathan lost and was pissed so he killed either Alec, magnus, Simon, Jorda, Jace or even luke.. And then rubbed it in their faces.
    Btw I LOVE ALL OF THEM SOOOO MUCH I HOPE THAT NONE OF THEM REALLY ARE DEAD THAT WOULD BE TERRRRRRIIIIBBLLE AND I WOULD BE SOOOO SAD PLEASE CASSIE LET THEM ALL LIVE IN THE END I CRAVE A HAPPY ENDING!!

  72. I am really despising sebastion right now.. 😡
