— Alec

“Oh, good. For a second there I was worried there was going to be an actual plan with, like, steps we could follow.You know, something reassuring.”

— Isabelle

“Tell the Queen what we want, and that if she does it, we will let her live.”

  1. Wow. Epic. First quote is really scaring me though…

    Love it! Kinda nervous about Alec’s quote. Very shady Cassandra Clare. Thanks. ._.

  3. I can feel beautiful, beautiful Sizzy scenes. Literally just what I needed.

    The quotes are awesome and the art is freaking fantastic.

  5. Awsome! But both Alec and Izzy look so sad and defeated in the art. Why would they be drawn that way? Still – amazingly drawn, it’s making me even more excited!! (if that’s possible) 🙂

  7. I wonder if the little spot of light coming from the two of them mean anything

    I love this!

  10. So, looks like it will be Alec, Isabelle, Jace, Magnus and…Simon? The quotes excite me, and I love the artwork. ❤

    the Alec quotes seem deeply emotional and serious while the Isabelle quotes make me want to laugh like a hyena is that weird?

  12. THIS!!! Great art, great quotes. I can see that Alec seems to be opening up more to Jace and toughening up. Izzy is sassy. This is awesome.

  13. The art is amazing! The quotes are great too, and I’ll be quite happy if the Seelie Queen does die

  14. Reblogged this on Avid Reader and commented:
    OMG SO MANY JUICY QUOTES!!!!!! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    By The Angel!
    I love Izzy’s quote about the cave…makes u wonder
    I do like her, she’s cool and smart and beautiful
    I would want to be her, she’s cunning, sassy, wise and brave. Like me

  16. I always felt Isabelle hid her emotions behind her wit and sarcasm. She’s an intriguing character that I fell Cassie hasn’t explored as much as the others. She’s a daughter of a jerk father, the daughter of bitter mother, and the sister to deeply conflicted brothers. She burdens so much, that’s why I’m so glad she’s with Simon. They’re oddly good for one another.

  17. They look sad and depressed, Why? But it’s still an amazing drawing!!!

  18. Will and Tessa have sex in a mountain that as sleeping demons inside
    and so that we know Jace and clary literally have sex in a cave!!!!!!!!!!!

    Great quotes!
    I like the fact that Alec seems to become more self cofident and a kind of leader. I mean, that was the reason for the break-up with Magnus. Everybody told him that Jace and Izzy were better Shadowhunters than he was. Probably Magnus was the first person who wanted him and not Jace or Izzy. Than Alec was avoided from some other Shadowhunters and Camille and the Queen told him that Magnus just like his pretty face.

    The queen comment, definitely makes me think it is the Seelie Queen that betrays them
