New Unidentified Snippet

His face crumpled. “He hates me,” he said. “All I do is love him, but he hates me, he just hates me, I don’t know why.”
Any ideas who's talking or which book this snippet could be from? City of Heavenly Fire, Lady Midnight...? Sound of in the comments!

Catch up on the Latest News About Cassandra Clare's Next Next Series: THE LAST HOURS

A few days back, Cassandra Clare had revealed the mysterious THL is short for The Last Hours. The title is inspired by Great Expectations by Charles Dickens.
You have been in every line I have ever read, since I first came here, the rough common boy whose poor heart you wounded even then. You have been in every prospect I have ever seen since — on the river, on the sails of the ships, on the marshes, in the clouds, in the light, in the darkness, in the wind, in the woods, in the sea, in the streets. You have been the embodiment of every graceful fancy that my mind has ever become acquainted with. The stones of which the strongest London buildings are made, are not more real, or more impossible to be displaced by your hands, than your presence and influence have been to me, there and everywhere, and will be. Estella, to the last hours of my life, you cannot choose but remain part of my character, part of the little good in me, part of the evil.
The Last Hours talk about the next generation after Will and Tessa (i.e. their children)
The Last Hours is a new Shadowhunters series set in 1903. It deals with Will and Tessa’s children, James and Lucie Herondale, as well as Cordelia Carstairs, Charlotte and Henry’s children, Tatiana Blackthorn’s children, the Lightwood kids, and many more. 1903 is right around the time the Victorian era tips over into the Edwardian era — beautiful clothes, fabulous history and so much more that I’m excited to write about!
There will be 3 books in this series: Chain of Thorns, Chain of Gold, and Chain of Iron. These titles are also inspired by Great Expectations:
Imagine one selected day struck out of it, and think how different its course would have been. Pause you who read this, and think for a moment of the long chain of iron or gold, of thorns or flowers, that would never have bound you, but for the formation of the first link on one memorable day.
Just like The Infernal Devices is interconnected with The Mortal Instruments, The Last Hours will be interconnected with The Dark Artifices:
The books will interconnect with The Dark Artifices trilogy as two separate trilogies that are also the stories of the Blackthorns, Herondales and Carstairs, much like TMI and The Infernal Devices interconnected despite taking place in different time periods and locations. The exact order of publication isn’t decided yet. Lady Midnight, the first of the Dark Artifices, will certainly be the next Shadowhunter book coming out, and I’ll keep you up to date on the publication order when it’s nailed down.
Here are some characters from The Last Hours illustrated by Cassandra Jean:
 Find out more information about these characters here.

The Runaway Queen 1791
What Really Happened in Peru 1791

Yesterday, the City of Heavenly Fire cover was released on CBS television, and we all freaked out because it is breathtaking. But now we can check out the details on the cover with this HD cover Cassandra Clare released:
So, the nice version of the cover of City of Heavenly Fire that went up on TV yesterday!
Yes, that is Clary and Sebastian. Yes, Clary is wearing white. She does wear white in the book at a certain point. There are interesting details up close about both their weapons, and if you look closely you can see the chain of Clary’s necklace. Remember the covers of the books don’t use the runes from the Codex or that we saw in the movie. They are pretty designs, but they don’t mean anything.

Check out this Excerpt from 'What to Buy the Shadowhunter Who Has Everything'

In case you missed it, the next installment of The Bane Chronicles was released last week. And because Cassandra Clare accidentally missed the release, she's making up for it by giving us an excerpt:
Magnus had been interested by Clary, the little redheaded scrap who had grown into a—slightly bigger little redheaded scrap, but had not thought he would be terribly interested in the companions she had found for herself. Not the nondescript mundane boy; not golden-eyed Jace Wayland, who reminded Magnus of too much of a past that he would rather forget; and certainly not either of the Lightwood siblings, the dark boy and girl whose parents Magnus had good reason to dislike.
It made no sense that his eyes had been drawn to Alec, over and over again. Alec had hung to the back of their little group, had made no effort to attract the eye. He had striking coloring, the rare combination of black hair and blue eyes that had always been Magnus’s favorite, and Magnus supposed that was why he had looked in Alec’s direction at first. Strange to see the coloringthat had so distinguished Will and his sister, so many miles and years gone by, and on someone with an entirely different last name …
Then Alec had smiled at one of Magnus’s jokes, and the smile had lit a lamp in his solemn face, making his blue eyes brilliant, and briefly taking Magnus’s breath away. And when Magnus’s attention had been held, he’d seen a flicker of returned interest in Alec’s eyes, a mixture of guilt, intrigue, and pleasure at Magnus’s attention. Shadowhunters were old-fashioned about such matters, which was to say bigoted and hidebound, as they were about everything. Magnus had been approached by male Shadowhunters before, of course, but always in a hole-and-corner way, always as if they’d been doing Magnus some huge favor and as if Magnus’s touch, though desired, might sully them. (Magnus had always turned them down.) It had been a shock to see such feelings open and innocent on a beautiful boy’s face.
When Magnus had winked at Alec and told him to call him, it had been a reckless impulse, little more than a whim. He had certainly not expected the Shadowhunter on his doorstep a few days later, asking for a date. Nor had he expected the date to go so spectacularly bizarrely, or expected to like Alec quite so much afterward…

Check out Who is Narrating the Next BANE CHRONICLES Installment

Jordan Gavaris of Orphan Black has been selected to read What to Buy the Shadowhunter Who Has Everything: (And Who You're Not Officially Dating Anyway) (also known as the eighth installment of The Bane Chronicles). Cassandra Clare's words on Jordan Gavaris:
Hello! Cute boy got your attention? I am zipping by in the middle of editing to announce that Jordan Gavaris of Orphan Black will be reading the next of the Bane Chronicles. If you haven’t seen Orphan Black, Jordan’s character Felix is one of the most fantastic things about an already fantastic show with amazing performances, and we’re so happy to have Jordan reading what might be the funniest of the Bane Chronicles installments: What to Buy the Shadowhunter Who Has Everything. In which Magnus angsts, calls Ragnor, and seeks advice from a tentacled demon about his love life.
Look out for an interview where I chat with Jordan about reading the Bane Chronicles and also angle for Orphan Black spoilers. (If you aren’t watching it, you should be! Sarah RB turned me onto it and I am grateful enough to forgive her for the stunt she pulled in Italy with the bat.)
Welcome, Jordan. :)

Check out Cassandra Clare's CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE Playlist

While writing, Cassandra Clare tends to listen to certain tracks over and over again. These songs have small connections to the feeling of the story. Underneath each song is -what I think is- the verse that applies most to the plot of The Mortal Instruments: City of Heavenly Fire.
1. "I’m Sorry I Love You" by the Magnetic Fields
A single rose in your garden dwells
Like any rose it’s not itself
It is my love in your garden grows
but let’s pretend it’s just a rose
Well I’m sorry that I love you
It’s a phase that I’m going through
There is nothing that I can do
and I’m sorry that I love you
Do not listen to my song
Don’t remember it, don’t sing along
Let’s pretend it’s a work of art
Let’s pretend it’s not my heart.
The rose will fade when summer’s gone
The song will fade and I’ll be gone
because my heart is dying too
and it’s all the same to you.
2. Ryan Star “Losing your Memory”
Call all your friends
And tell them you’re never coming back
Cause this is the end
Pretend that you want it
Don’t react The damage is done
The police are coming too slow now
I would have died
I would have loved you all my life.
3.  Airborne Toxic Event, “Timeless”
Just help me through this moment
After everything I told you
How the weight of their loss is like the weight of the sun.
I see their faces near me,
I hear their voices calling,
It was like their lives were over before they begun.
4. "Us Ones In Between" by Sunset Rubdown 
And I’ve heard of pious men
And I’ve heard of dirty fiends
But you don’t often hear
Of us ones in between…
And in the darkness I taught myself to hate.
But where were you, oh where were you?
And where the f*** did the sun go?
5. Ingrid Michaelson, “Breakable”
Have you ever thought about what protects our hearts?
Just a cage of rib bones and other various parts.
So it’s fairly simple to cut right through the mess,
And to stop the muscle that makes us confess.
And we are so fragile,
And our cracking bones make noise,
And we are just,
Breakable, breakable, breakable girls and boys.
"Epic Last Song" by Does It Offend You, Yeah
I called today but missed you again
Today’s the day I go up in flames
I sent the money to you, my dear
Today’s the day I burn away
I say baby, babe I’ve loved you a long time
6. "Epic Last Song" by Does It Offend You, Yeah
I called today but missed you again
Today’s the day I go up in flames
I sent the money to you, my dear
Today’s the day I burn away
I say baby, babe I’ve loved you a long time

7. "Samson" by Regina Spektor
You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the stars came fallin’ on our heads
But they’re just old light, they’re just old light

8. "Control" by Garbage
The world might end,
The night might fall.
Rain on down and cover us all,
And drown us with the burdens of our sins.
Maybe I’ll look you in the eye,
Tell you, you don’t wanna die.
Maybe I’ll hold my breath and jump right in.
9. "Orange Sky" Alexei Murdoch
And I had a dream
I stood beneath an orange sky
With my sister standing by
I said, “Sister, here is what I know now
In your love, my salvation lies.”
10. "Your Ex-Lover is Dead" by Stars
This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin
Tried to reach deep but you couldn’t get in
Now you’re outside me
You see all the beauty
Repent all your sin
11. "Daughter" by Youth
And if you’re in love, then you are the lucky one,
'Cause most of us are bitter over someone.
Setting fire to our insides for fun,
To distract our hearts from ever missing them.
But I’m forever missing him.
12. "Upward Over the Mountain" by Iron and Wine
Mother remember being so stern with that girl who was with me
Mother remember the blink of an eye when I breathed through your body
So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons are like birds flying upwards over the mountain
Mother I made it up from the bruise on the floor of this prison
Mother I lost it all in the fear of the Lord I was given
Mother forget me now that the creek drank the cradle you sang to
So may the sunrise bring hope where it once was forgotten
Sons can be birds taken broken up to the mountain.
13. Greg Laswell, “Goodbye”
Then lonely lay the day
I can’t remember you at all
And it’s not easy to say that day
Has already come and gone
And all that remains is a place
Where you no longer are
One day I won’t regret this
Oh how I want to believe that’s true
Once I pick up the parts I broke on you
I’ll get used to the idea
It’s not you.
14. "Sorrow," The National
Sorrow is my body on the waves
Sorrow is a girl inside my cage
I live in a city sorrow built
It’s in my honey, it’s in my milk.
It’s only half my heart alone,
On the water,
Cover me in rags and bones, sympathy.
'Cause I don't wanna get over you.
I don’t wanna get over you.
15. Bright Eyes, “A Perfect Sonnet”
We’re singing, I believe that lovers should be chained together
And thrown into a fire with their songs and letters
And left there to burn
Left there to burn in their arrogance
But as for me I’m coming to my final failure
I’ve killed myself with changes trying to make things better
But I ended up becoming something other than what I had planned to be
Now I believe that lovers should be draped in flowers
And laid entwined together on a bed of clover
And left there to sleep.
Left there to dream of their happiness.
16. Nick Cave “The Ship Song”
We talk about it all night long
We define our moral ground
But when I crawl into your arms
Everything, it comes tumbling down

Come sail your ships around me
And burn your bridges down
We make a little history, baby
Every time you come around

Your face has fallen sad now
For you know the time is nigh
When I must remove your wings

And you, you must try to fly.
So now, do you have a feel for what City of Heavenly Fire is going to feel like? Let us know in the comments!

Outtakes from EW's Photoshoot with THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS Cast + Jamily at Comic Con 2013

We've seen the video to the photoshoot for Jamie Campbell Bower and Lily Collins' adorable Jamily photo from Comic Con 2013:

They took so many other pictures, but where did they go? Well, they've just been released online (you can find them on tumblr) and we have most of them here:







New CARSTADALE HERONSTAIRS Snippet from Cassandra Clare

After Cassandra Clare saw some Jem and Will artwork on tumblr, she decided it would be a "HERONSTAIRS DAY." And so, today, we get to read some new dialogue from Will and Jem -also known as Carstadale or Heronstairs!
Check out this very Heronstairs-y snippet:
"I love you," Will said. "I love you desperately. I have never felt for another the way I feel for you. My love for you is as eternal as the sea, and like the rocks against which the waves are dashed, again and again, it shall remain unyielding. In you I have found my own heart’s heart, which I had thought previously only to find in dreams. Never could I have encompassed a better partner, a finer friend, a more beauteous companion. Allow me just once to kiss your sweet lips."
Jem looked up from the fire, where he was petting Church. Church had fallen asleep and all his fur was sticking up. “I do wish you would cease reading to me from Gothic novels,” he said. “They give me the pip.”
"Love is a noble emotion!" Will cried, waving his arms about with such energy that the book he was reading slid from his lap. His hair was sticking up like Church’s fur, or a bit as if he had been electrocuted.
"Quite," said Jem, and rolled over onto his back, smiling up at Will from his place by the fire. Church twitched and snuffled, curling up against his shoulder. "Now read me something with a fight scene in it, won’t you?"

The Mysterious Graphic Novel About The Circle is Called THE SECRET TREASON

awww…Herondales and their parabatai through the ages…
During Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Princess March Tour, she revealed that she was working on a graphic novel about The Circle (Valentine, Jocelyn, Hodge, etc).
A lot of Cassandra Jean's artwork was tagged under TST. You can also find a Q & A where Cassandra Clare mentions TST
There are other Shadowhunter projects like The Bane Chronicles and the graphic novel project about the Circle, currently in planning stages and known as TST.
During Cassandra Jean's google livestream, Cassandra Clare answered some fan questions, including the title to the mysterious TST:

A New Unidentified Snippet With Someone "Dying in [Someone's] Arms"

Cassandra Jean
Cassandra Clare has released a new snippet. The catch is that is it an unidentified snippet, so we don't know which one of her beloved characters is dying!
"Well, it’s a bit ironic, isn’t it?"
"What do you mean?"
"All that effort to convince you I wasn’t in love with you, and here I am, dying in your arms."
Have any guesses? Let us know in the comments.

Place Holder Art for 'The Mortal Instruments: CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE' Revealed

Cassandra Clare revealed the place holder art for the final book in The Mortal Insturments, City of Heavenly Fire. What this means is this is not the the artwork that will appear on the book, but it's just a picture to show on Amazon and other online stores in the meantime.
Today seems a good day to reveal the placeholder cover for City of Heavenly Fire! This is not the final cover, but since you’ll be seeing it all over, on amazon etc. until they reveal the final, might as well see it here first. I did not come up with the tagline, but I like it.

The final cover will of course not have words on it, but people. I cannot tell you which people. You will have to wait for the reveal. There is also an extra surprise printed on the inside cover! *dances*

It's Finally the Release Day for THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES + Why You Must See It Opening Weekend

If you've been following our tweet for a while, you'll remember when we were first counting down to The Mortal Instruments movie and we still had 300+ days to go. Now, August 21 has arrived and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is out in theatres today!

If you're really, truly excited, you'll go see the movie tonight or sometime this weekend with no question! However, if you're thinking about waiting until the theater is less busy (next weekend or something), that is not a good idea!

Opening weekend (in this case Wednesday to Sunday) is very important for a movie. It basically determines if there will be a sequel to the movie. We all want to see The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes and possibly The Infernal Devices movies too, right? So if you're going to see the movie, see it this opening week/end! In fact, see it once with your friends and see it again with your parents (or another group of friends)!

I've seen the movie once, and this weekend I'll probably see it again in Imax! (Read our review here) Also, once you've seen the movie be sure to tweet us and use #TMIMovieReactions to let us know what you thought about The Mortal Instruments movie.

Thanks so much for visiting our site, following our tweets/tumblr posts, hopefully, we can countdown to another 5 more Mortal Instruments movies!
