New CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE Snippet About Magnus's Father

Two -well, technically three- more months till City of Heavenly Fire. Here's to two/three more months of stressing about this final book in The Mortal Instruments.
Read a snippet to make it better:
“And I suppose you know who Magnus’ father is?” Luke said.
“I paid a lot of money once to find it out,” Raphael said.

New Valentine's Day CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE Snippet

It's a bit late, but your Valentine's Day Weekend just got better! Cassandra Clare released a new City of Heavenly Fire snippet just for us on Valentine's Day.
“Julian,” said Jia, in the same gentle voice, “would you do something for us? Would you take up the Mortal Sword?”
Clary sat up straight. She had held the Mortal Sword: she had felt the weight of it. The cold, like hooks in your skin, dragging the truth out of you. You couldn’t lie holding the Mortal Sword, but the truth, even a truth you wanted to tell, was agony.
“They can’t,” she whispered. “He’s just a kid —“
“He’s the oldest of the kids who escaped the Institute,” Jace said under his breath. “They don’t have a choice.”
Julian nodded, his thin shoulders straight. “I’ll take it.”
Robert Lightwood passed behind the podium then and went to the table. He took up the sword and returned to stand in front of Julian. The contrast between them was almost funny: the big, barrel-chested man and the lanky, wild-haired boy.

Julian reached a hand up and took the sword. As his hand closed around the hilt, he shuddered, a ripple of pain that was quickly forced down. Emma, behind him, started forward, and Clary caught a glimpse of the look on her face — pure fury — before Helen caught at her and pulled her back.
City of Heavenly Fire will be released on May, 27th:

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

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.

Congrats to 'THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS' MOVIE Facebook Page for Reaching 1 Million 'Likes'

Big congrats to The Mortal Instruments Facebook page for getting 1 million facebook fans!
Shadowhunters, we are now one million strong! Thank you for joining the fight against evil
Our family is getting bigger! Hopefully, before the next movie comes out, The Mortal Instruments movie can get another 1 million fans. Make sure to share/talk about The Mortal Instruments with your friends and family. (Buying the book would be a great Christmas present and an excellent way to get your friends hooked!)

Visual 'CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE' Snippet by Cassandra Clare and Cassandra Jean

Cassandra Clare sent Cassandra Jean -one of the illustrator from The Shadowhunter's Codex- a snippet from The Mortal Instruments: City of Heavenly Fire. With Cassandra Clare's permission, Cassandra Jean has illustrated part of the snippet and shared it with all of us! Check it out:

E! Online Asks "Which Fanchise has the Fiercest Heroine?"

Check it out, E! Online is asking which heroine out of Hunger Games, Twilight, Harry Potter, Divergent and The Mortal Instruments has the strongest heroine.
Here is what E! Online has to say about our Clary Fray:
Clary Fray, The Mortal Instruments (Lily Collins)

Strengths: The Shadowhunter can see monsters mortals can't—which comes in handy when they're trying to kill her and the people she loves. Clary also possesses the ability to create new runes because of the extra angel blood running through her veins.

Weaknesses: Clary can be quite stubborn at times. Not long after her mother goes missing, she learns that her father, Jonathan Rhys Meyers' Valentine Morgenstern, has been experimenting on the Downworlders and demons, making him one of the most dangerous men she's ever encountered. For a time, she even believed that that her boyfriend, Jamie Campbell Bower's Jace Lightwood, might be her biological brother. Talk about a head-trip!

Nov 20: Parabatai Talk in a New CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE Snippet

A parabatai. Like he was. And Jace knew, too, what that faded rune meant: a parabatai whose other half was dead. He felt his sympathy leap toward Brother Zachariah, as he imagined himself without Alec, with only that faded rune to remind him where once he had been bonded to someone who knew all the best and worst parts of his soul.

Oct. 20: New CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE Snippet With Alec

In case you didn't hear, Cassandra Clare finished City of Heavenly Fire last week. And now, she is starting to tease us with little snippets from the book, check out this new one with Alec:
Alec pulled his knees up to his chest and looked thoughtfully at Jace. “I know,” he said. “I’m not jealous. I always knew, from the first, that everyone thought you were better than me. My dad thought it. The Clave thought it. Izzy and Max looked up to you as the great warrior they wanted to be like. But the day you asked me to be your parabatai, I knew you meant that you trusted me enough to ask me to help you. You were telling me that you weren’t this lone and self-sufficient warrior able to do everything alone. You needed me.So I realized that there was one person who didn’t assume you were better than me. You.

Perks of Pre-Ordering CITY OF HEAVENLY FIRE Early

Just like the last book of The Infernal Devices, the last book of The Mortal Instruments (City of Heavenly Fire) will have some extra content inside the book jacket for North American Hard Cover First Editions.
Cassandra Clare has the details:
What the CoHF special first edition cover offers is basically a chance to see Cliff (the cover artist who has done all my covers) do his take on characters that would otherwise not make it onto covers, especially since this is the last book about them.
And in another tumblr post, Cassandra Clare tells us:
There are of course two figures on the proper cover of the book, but other characters, some who we’ve never seen on covers before, will be on the inside of the first edition’s jacket.
And that’s all I can say right now …
Once again, when the collectors first editions are sold out, that's it -there will be no second batch of collectors editions. Make sure you pre-order the book soon!

Catch up on the Latest Women of the Shadowhunter Universe Calendar Pictures

This Women-of-the-Shadowhunter-world Calendar originally started with Men of the Shadowhunter Universe Calendar. These calendars are drawn by illustrator, Cassandra Jean, with the help of Cassandra Clare.
So the beautiful Cassandra (NOT me, Cassandra Jean) as you know collaborated to create a calendar of the TMI/TID/TDA/TLH boys — Men of the Shadowhunter Universe, I guess — and while I don’t know what we’re going to do with it yet, we decided to do a matching calendar for the girls. Cassandra wanted to work with classic pinup poses, so here’s Grace from TLH being ice queen January, and Helen and Aline being February 2014, celebrating Valentine’s Day*. Lookit Helen’s cute pointy ears!

*But not the way Valentine celebrates it.

More calendar pics! March Cecily and April Maia — I put them alongside March Will and April Matthew for compare and contrast. Everyone looks gorgeous thanks to Cassandra Jean.
Tiny wubbins baby wolf!
