Cassie gives such good treats. The author debuted a new City of Heavenly Fire snippet on her tumblr earlier today, and we are even more excited to read the book.
Idris had been green and gold and russet in the autumn, when Clary had first been there. It had a stark grandeur in the winter: the mountains rose in the distance, capped white with snow, and the trees along the side of the road that led back to Alicante from the lake were stripped bare, their leafless branches making lace-like patterns against the bright sky.
Sometimes Jace would slow the horse to point out the manor houses of the richer Shadowhunter families, hidden from the road when the trees were full but revealed now. She felt his shoulders tense as they passed one that nearly melded with the forest around it: it had clearly been burned and rebuilt. Some of the stones still bore the black marks of smoke and fire. “The Blackthorn manor,” he said. “Which means that around this bend in the road is …” He paused as Wayfarer summited a small hill, and reined him in so they could look down to where the road split in two. One direction led back toward Alicante — Clary could see the demon towers in the distance — while the other curled down toward a large building of mellow golden stone, surrounded by a low wall. “ … the Herondale manor,” Jace finished.
The wind picked up; icy, it ruffled Jace’s hair. Clary had her hood up, but he was bare-headed and bare-handed, having said he hated wearing gloves when horseback riding. He liked to feel the reins in his hands. “Did you want to go and look at it?” she asked.
His breath came out in a white cloud. “I’m not sure.”
Not nice Cassie. I am on edge. Is it May yet?

Jamie Campbell Bower is someone that we can’t resist. There is something about him. You think that he’s just another actor and then you realize he’s just a refreshing human being. He’s honest, kind, and giving.
The actor talked with Hunger TV – and he’s honest.
YOU ALSO SHOWED US A NEW TATTOO LAST TIME. HAVE YOU HAD ANY MORE DONE SINCE THEN?
Yeah, I had a rose done on my knee and a skull on my left middle finger. I have a light side and a dark side that my tattoos represent. My left side is my dark side, and my right side is my light side. I have a big skull on the back of my left calf, and on my right calf I have a bird with flowers behind it. I want to get more skulls on my left side and more flowers and pretty shit on my right. (Continue Reading…)

Get ready for more Shadowhunters!
Cassandra Clare just revealed the title of her fourth Shadowhunter Chronicle series (No. 3 The Dark Artifices is coming in 2015).
THE LAST HOURS, which has been known as TLH for quite some time, is a planned trilogy that will take place in Edwardian London and will feature some familiar names and characters fans have heard about.
Clare said the title — and the series — pays homage to Great Expectations. Here are the titles for the three books:
Book 1: Chain of Thorns
Book 2: Chain of Gold
Book 3: Chain of Iron
Chain of Thorns is slated for a 2017 release, according to The Bookseller.
Are you excited for more Shadowhunter books? Pff, of course you are.

The final installment of The Bane Chronicles – The Course of True Love (And First Dates) — isn’t due out until March 18 (cries), but Cassandra Clare has shared a sneak peek of Alec and Magnus’ date chapter.
The kiss caught fire and all he could see behind his closed eyes were gold sparks, all he was aware of was Alec’s mouth, Alec’s strong gentle hands that had held down a werewolf and tried not to hurt her, Alec pressing him against the banister so the rotten wood creaked alarmingly and Magnus did not even care. Alec here, Alec now, the taste of Alec in his mouth, his hands pushing aside the fabric of his own worn t-shirt to get at Alec’s bare skin underneath.
My Malec feels are on high alert! I need more! Gimme more! March 18, why are you so far away?
The Bane Chronicles is also set to be released in full in print on November 11.
