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.

Finally, the Cover to CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE is Revealed!

After months, and months of hearing about the cover to the final book of The Mortal Instruments: City of Heavenly Fire, the world gets to see the cover and it was released on television! Cassandra Clare promises to get a better version for us tomorrow so that we can see the cover in all it's glory, but in the mean time:

Hope you didn't get to teary looking at this AMAZING cover. Just in case you missed it, notice how Clary's dress is white? "For death and sorrow, the color's white" Have any predictions?

Also, there seems to be a little dispute going on between who is on this cover? Jace and Clary or Sebastian/Jonathan and Clary?
Here is one opinion from a tumblr fan
Update: Cassandra Clare has just confirmed, it is Sebastian/Jonathan on the cover next to Clary

Have any dream casts in your head, yet? Sound off in the comments!

New Christmasy CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE Snippet

Sorry for the delay, but I've been on vacation and then I had to catch up on work... But I now have time to catch you all up on the latest Shadowhunter news!
First off is the new City of Heavenly Fire snippet that Cassandra Clare released as a Christmas present to us all:
The Frays had never been a religiously observant family, but Clary loved Fifth Avenue at Christmas time. The air smelled like sweet roasted chestnuts, and the window displays sparkled with silver and blue, green and red. This year there were fat round crystal snowflakes attached to each lamppost, sending back the winter sunlight in shafts of gold[B1] . Not to mention the huge tree at Rockefeller Center. It threw its shadow across them as she and Simon draped themselves over the gate at the side of the skating rink, watching tourists fall down as they tried to navigate the ice.
Clary had a hot chocolate wrapped in her hands, the warmth spreading through her body. She felt almost normal—this, coming to Fifth to see the window displays and the tree, had been a winter tradition for her and Simon for as long as she could remember.
“Feels like old times, doesn’t it?” he said, echoing her thoughts as he propped his chin on his folded arms.
She chanced a sideways look at him. He was wearing a black topcoat and scarf that emphasized the winter pallor of his skin. His eyes were shadowed, indicating that he hadn’t fed on blood recently. He looked like what he was—a hungry, tired vampire.
Well, she thought. Almost like old times. “More people to buy presents for,” she said. “Plus, the always traumatic what-to-buy-someone-for-the-first-Christmas-after-you’ve-started-dating question.”
“What to get the Shadowhunter who has everything,” Simon said with a grin.
“Jace mostly likes weapons,” Clary sighed. “He likes books, but they have a huge library at the Institute. He likes classical music …” She brightened. Simon was a musician; even though his band was terrible, and was always changing their name—currently they were Lethal Soufflé—he did have training. “What would you give someone who likes to play the piano?”
“A piano.”
“A really huge metronome that could also double as a weapon?”
Clary sighed, exasperated.
“Sheet music. Rachmaninoff is tough stuff, but he likes a challenge.”
“Now you’re talking. I’m going to see if there’s a music store around here.” Clary, done with her hot chocolate, tossed the cup into a nearby trash can and pulled her phone out. “What about you? What are you giving Isabelle?”
“I have absolutely no idea,” Simon said. They had started heading toward the avenue, where a steady stream of pedestrians gawking at the windows clogged the streets.
“Oh, come on. Isabelle’s easy.”
“That’s my girlfriend you’re talking about.” Simon’s brows drew together. “I think. I’m not sure. We haven’t discussed it. The relationship, I mean.”
“You really have to DTR, Simon.”
“Define the relationship. What it is, where it’s going. Are you boyfriend and girlfriend, just having fun, ‘it’s complicated,’ or what? When’s she going to tell her parents? Are you allowed to see other people?”
Simon blanched. “What? Seriously?”
“Seriously. In the meantime—perfume!” Clary grabbed Simon by the back of his coat and hauled him into a cosmetics store that had once been a bank. It was massive on the inside, with rows of gleaming bottles everywhere. “And something unusual,” she said, heading for the fragrance area. “Isabelle isn’t going to want to smell like everyone else. She’s going to want to smell like figs, or vetiver, or—”
“Figs? Figs have a smell?” Simon looked horrified; Clary was about to laugh at him when her phone buzzed. It was her mother.
where are you? It’s an emergency.

Lily Collins Waiting to Hear News About the Sequel: CITY OF ASHES

Earlier this year, the Hollywood Reporter had heard from Constantin that the sequel to The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones would start filming in 2014. With MTV's latest chat at Glamour magazine's Women of the Year Award with our Clary Fray, Lily Collins, she states that "There is a lot of conversation still going on. I don't know anything else; I kind of am with everyone else in the waiting game."
"I think I'm like all the fans going, 'So, what's happening?' But you know they will be the first ones to figure it out when we do. You never know, right?"
Check out the interview:
So, at the moment, it is still unclear as to if the sequel will happen; but, let's keep our fingers crossed!
