Read an excerpt from ‘City of Heavenly Fire’ + EW’s interview with Cassandra Clare

20140124-104017.jpg

On Tuesday Entertainment Weekly’s TMI expert Breia Brissey announced an interview with The Mortal Instruments author Cassandra Clare and an exclusive excerpt from City of Heavenly Fire and now we don’t have to wait any longer.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview with Cassie:

What can you tease about the book?
I can definitely say that the characters go to a location that we’ve heard about, but we’ve never seen in any of the books. There is a death of a major character really early on in the book that I think will surprise people. And there are two weddings.

How does it feel to finally be at the end of this series?
Wrapping up a series that’s been going on for so long — and it’s the year after the movie came out — you really feel like this is the most highly anticipated book I’ve written and will maybe ever write. So it’s certainly an incredibly odd feeling.

Head to EW.com to read the full interview, which includes talk of upcoming projects and a secret TV project

    OH.MY.GOD

    • a death of a major character? omigosh, my heart…

    • While everyone’s freaking out about this death of a major character thing, I’d like to point out that Clary and Sebastian are armed with the twin set of Morgenstern swords on the front cover! (the swords that are mentioned in the excerpt)

  2. A death of a major charecter EARLY ON what the hellll!!!! No No No No No No that can’t happen!!! NO!!! Who who? Im going crazy im even more terrified now:”’S

  3. would it be too much to hope that Sebastian dies early on?

  4. Major character? NO NO NO NO NO NO NO I CAN’T TAKE THIS NO

  5. TMI INSANITY // January 24, 2014 at 11:18 AM // Reply

    TWO WEDDINGS? PLEASE LET IT BE JACE AND CLARY AND JOCELYN AND LUKE AND I SO HOPE THE CHARACTER THAT DIES IS MAUREEN SHE’S TOTALLY OFF THE DEEP END

  6. What if the death early on in the book is either Alec/Izzy… But they become a downworlder just to be with Magnus/Simon forever???!!!!!!!!!!

    It wouldn’t be a death exactly but it is…. 0_o

  7. Oh lovely …….. early deaths just the thing to drive me to insanity . but two weddings AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I really hope one is Jace and Clarys

  8. I hope one of the weddings is Jocelyn and Luke

    • Pretty sure it is. It has been built up for two books! 😋

      Cassie did say Jace and Clary ‘sort of’ get married. So who knows? Maybe they will also get married.

  9. The first chapter is called Simon’s Sacrifice. LEAVE ME ALONE I’M NOT OKAY WITH THIS INFORMATION OMG.

  10. NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT THE FACT THAT THEY ARE GOING SOMEWHERE NEW. IT CAN BE A DEMON’S DIMENSION OR HEAVEN OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT! AHHH OMG I WANNA DIE TWO WEDDINGS ONE EARLY DEATH OOH I JUST CAAAAAAN’T JKFJGFKD

  11. Im trying so hard not to scream/cry out in the middle of my free period! ; A;

  12. Secret TV project? Watch, I BET you it’s gonna be Infernal Devices! I swear by the Angel if it is- oh, my gosh!!!!

    • I’m actually still hoping for a TID movie series. I know Cassie said they were possibly making them into a TV show, but a lot of TV shows I like get cancelled before they get a proper ending. So I’ll be constantly afraid they’ll cancel the show midway through the storyline..

      Also, it might even not get picked up in the first place, just look at The Selection and Delirium…

      They also tend to change the character and storyline a lot. Both the pilots For The Selection and Delirium were very different from the books. Another example is The Vampire Diaries. They even completely changed the main character in that show (personality and appearance wise).

      *Though I have to admit I do like the storyline in the TVD show more than in the books*

    • Let’s just hope Cassie doesn’t pull a Veronica Roth with this book..

  13. I can’t wait any longer, this is torture.I hope the one who goes is raphael

  14. Oh my… .-.

  15. WHAT ABOUT JEM AND TESSA FOR THE SECOND WEDDING (AFTER JOCELYN AND LUKE)???????????? THAT WOULD BE AMAZING OMG BCHDRJGBDGBRHJAGB

    • JessaForever // January 26, 2014 at 4:00 AM // Reply

      OOHH MY GOODDD I HOPE ITS JEM AND TESSA
      PLEASE BE THEM
      I HOPE ONE OF THEM DOESN”T DIEEE
      PLEAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

    • 😀 I didn’t even think of that! You, my good women, are a genius!

    • I’m with you, Beth, about the next wedding that should be featured!
      Love both boys; (Will and Jem) ❤️ 💖
      Really, how can Magnus break up with Alec like that? 😑 😫

      • I was referring to Tessa and Jem for the next wedding that should be included!
        (Continuation from my previous comment made @9:40 AM)

  16. Love it! Can’t wait! So well written.

  17. A Major character dying early OMFG¿? i will ahte her if she dares to kill Simon! and they are going to another dimension, i bet they will go to the Demon`s dimension that`s been talked on the books the door that noone know where they are on the earth and only there they will fight the last battle!….

    The last part of that snipet #Bow

    I have a really bad gut feeling that the early death of the character is Simon, because she even said in another twitter post I think it was, that one of the first chapters is named “Simon’s Sacrifice”….

  19. Andrea Molnár // January 24, 2014 at 3:46 PM // Reply

    I think that Maryse Lightwood will die early so her husband will have a reason to be the new Inspector. What do you think? He wanted to be an Inspector already but then he returned home to his family. What else should be his reason to want to be Inspector again?

  20. Elllloo

  21. I want this book so bad!!!!!! I need it now, this teasing is killing me.

  22. Amalia Morgenstern // January 24, 2014 at 7:17 PM // Reply

    I think they’ll go go a demon realm, the void.

    On top of stressing for exams, I’m super stressing over this book now so I can’t bare to comment on how I’m drowning in feels after hearing about the early death >__< …. So I'm just going to say that Cassie said that Jace & Clary sort of get married (or something like that), so I feel like that if that doesn't count as one of the marriages, then it's going to be Luke&Jocelyn + Jem&Tessa (unless one or more of them die… But I'd rather not think about that)

  24. Personally, my excitement for CoHF has faded. I used to be a diehard TMI fan, but seriously, two years of waiting has kind of killed the suspense for me. I’ll still read it to see how it ends, but I’m not feeling the interest anymore.

    • I understand what you mean. Around March/April, I will go back and start over with City of Bones and re-read each book again. (I’ve done the entire 5 books 23 times, but each time I read them, I can’t put them down!) It has been a long wait and I have been reading other books, but I can’t wait for COHF. Try re-reading all the books again and I am sure this will spark your interest and suspense and I am sure you will fly into COHF as soon as it comes off the shelf!

  25. Honestly I don’t think Simon is going to die. I think she probably twitted that Chapter title to have us think it is Simon and they go off and kill off another character we truly didn’t expect. I PRAY I am right! Fingers Crossed!!!!

    Great interview abs holy crap the excerpt! Colssal showdown between between team good (jace and clary included, the shadowhunter and Sebastian and dark shadowhunter a! And two weddings?! Ones Luke and Jocelyn and maybe clace with the rube marking or malec?!

  27. teamedwardjace // January 25, 2014 at 1:42 AM // Reply

    But who will die?:(

  28. Rowena Drake // January 25, 2014 at 3:18 AM // Reply

    They go in a new place? In the Void? In another dimension? But Jace said only demons can travel through dimension, and no one else, even warlocks.

  29. Jace Lightwood // January 25, 2014 at 10:45 AM // Reply

    Clary might create a new rune that lets shadowhunters travel to other dimensions and the cover shows Clary and Sebastian in the demon city Pandemonium. Or mabye Sebastian can travel between dimensions because he is part demon.

  30. Omg oookey one of the wedding is Joyeclyns and lukes and i think the other could be the one of Malec, because they also talked about it in the other books. I really hope so, because i dont think they stay broken for a Long time, they love each other to much. And one early dead ahhhh!!! I would prefere if it wouldnt be like this. As Long ist not Magnus, Alec, Clary, or Jace i could live wit it but if ist one of them…

  31. OH MY GOD
    yes yes yes I KNOW THE WEDDINGS I’M SO HAPPY THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN. the first wedding is probs Luke’s and Jocelyn’s and the other one is CLACE OMG MY FANGIRL HEART MY OTP IS GETTING MARRIED

  32. I have a very sad feeling that it might be Alex sadly or Magnus who knows since alec was left with Maureen in City of Lost Souls 😦

  33. I have a very sad feeling that it might be Alex sadly or Magnus who knows since alec was left with Maureen in City of Lost Souls 😦 I just can’t believe this I want nobody to die I love this series so much :*(

  34. JessaForever // January 26, 2014 at 3:55 AM // Reply

    THe sword we read about!!!!!!!! It has got to be the one that Clary’s holding in the cover. OMG
    BUUUUUT
    A death of a major character in the beginning? NOOOOO
    PLEASE, DONT BE ALEC, OR MAGNUS!!
    I think it might be Alec cuz in the end of Lost SOuls, he was with maureen and I AM JUST DEAD!
    UGH, WHY CAN’T IT COME OUT SOONER?!??!?! X| 😦

  35. I’M CRYING RIGHT NOW FOR THE EARLY DEATH OF A MAIN CHARACTER!!! I GET A FEELING ITS GOING TO BE MAGNUS OR SIMON!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! I CAN’T WAIT FOR THE TWO WEDDING THATS GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE BOOK!!! :D. IT HAS TO BE JACE AND CLARY AND ISSY AND SIMON!!! THEY ARE SUCH THE CUTEST COUPLES IN THE WORLD. CAN’T WAIT FOR NOW!!!!!

  36. BY THE HOLY FLIPPIN ANGEL CASSIE!

  37. “There is a death of a major character really early on in the book that I think will surprise people.”
    OH MY GOODNESS!!! I don’t think I’m going to able to read CoHF. I cant handle major characters dying!

  38. Goldenboy4real // January 28, 2014 at 4:05 PM // Reply

    i doubt she would kill off jace or clary and i don’t think they are getting married either. we know one of the two weddings are Jocelyn and lukes. and as for the killing off i think it might be Simon because of the name of the first chapter or maybe Isabelle/alec so they can become a downworlder like their respective partner (Magnus and Alec have got to get back together after all they have been though)

  39. I AM NEPHILIM // January 29, 2014 at 8:12 AM // Reply

    someone dies… a major someone dies… hmmm… 2 weddings aaaand an unexpected place
    ladies and gentlemen the last book of tmi by cassandra clare: City of heartaches, heartbreaks and heart attacks

  40. What is one of the wedding’s is Alec and Magnus? Could that be a possibility? That would be soo sweet.

  41. Mrs Herondale // February 4, 2014 at 8:46 PM // Reply

    I think that the two weddings will be Jocelyn and Luke and Tessa and Jem. I really really hope that Jace, Clary, Simon, Izzy, Alec or Magnus don’t ‘t die. Also AJHASKJSDHFHFEWEHFJfkjABFJhihfwN IM FREAKING OUT!!!!! AGH I CANT WAAIIIIIIIIT!!!!!!!!!!!

  42. TessaGrayComeToLife // February 4, 2014 at 8:51 PM // Reply

    We know one wedding will be Jocelyn’s/Luke’s – the second has to Clace, Maidan or JESSA!!!!! Oh my gosh SOMEONE’S GONNA DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The book should be called City of Heartbreaks!!!

  43. Maybe what Cassandra means by Death of a major character is a majorly in power character like Robert or Maryse maybe because Robert wanted to be the Inquisitor that’s major and Maryse is the head of the Institute that’s Major to. Two Weddings I can’t wait! I think it might be Jem and Tessa and definitely Luke and Jocelyn! May 26 can not come fast enough! LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT!

  44. look closely // February 14, 2014 at 1:28 PM // Reply

    look, clary is wearing a white dress, that means one of her family will die… It can be Luke if jocelyn gets married first (he would be his godfather), or jocelyn, or jace if she gets married with im first.
    But at least 6 characters will die, according to the autor’s interveiw, readers will cry I think

  45. Well one possibility is that one of them could become a vampire. I am totally okay with Izzy becoming a vampire because then she and Simon could be an excepted relationship!!!
