Enää 12 viikkoa ennen kuin City of Heavenly Fire ilmestyy englanniksi ja tässä olisi pieni snippet kyseisestä kirjasta, jonka Cassandra postasi Tumblriin. Ei kannata lukea, jos et halua spoilaantua
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.”
Cassandra paljasti juuri mitä lyhenne TLH tarkoittaa ja sehän tarkoittaa The Last Hours. Ja pienenä infoa TLH:sta
1. Se sijoittuu vuoteen 1903
2. Päähenkilöt ovat the Infernal Devicen päähenkilöiden lapsia
3. Luvassa upeaita pukuja aikakautta kunnioittaen
4. Trilogian kirjojen nimet: Chain of Thorns, Chain of Gold ja Chain of Iron. Suomeksi Piikkien ketju, Kullan ketju ja Raudan ketju
5. The Infernal Devicen perustuen löyhästi Charles Dickensin Kahden kaupungin tarinaan, niin The Last Hours on ottanut vaikutteita Dickensin Suurista odotuksista
6. The Last Hours on samalla tavalla linkitetty The Dark Artificeen, mitä The Infernal Device on linkitetty The Mortal Instrumentsiin, eli hahmot ovat sukua toisilleen

Lisäksi Cassandran uusi haastattelu samalta lehdeltä.
The final installment of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series doesn’t hit shelves until May 27. The good news? That’s only a few months away. The bad news? City of Heavenly Fire is veiled in all kinds of secrecy. I can only assume the manuscript is being guarded by lock and key somewhere in Idris. Fortunately, Cassandra Clare was nice enough to share a few non-spoilery details about the much-anticipated sixth book. (The cover was revealed earlier this month.) To sweeten the pot, she gave us an exclusive excerpt from City of Heavenly Fire. So, by the angel, read on!
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: First of all, what do you think about the cover?
CASSANDRA CLARE: I really love this cover. Cliff [Nielsen] has done all of my covers since the beginning, and I think he has created a unique look that is specific to the series. We talked back in the beginning about deciding who was going to go on what cover, and that this cover was going to end up with Clary and her brother. This is the big face-off. This is the book where she goes up against her brother Sebastian, and he is the big villain. It’s kind of like a Batman/Joker cover. … And in a way, there’s a play of light and dark going on on the cover, and that sets up a big battle between good and evil with Clary standing for good and Sebastian standing for evil. There’s also little clues for the readers who have been reading the series a long time in the weapons that they’re holding, in the necklace that Clary is wearing, and especially in the landscape that they’re standing on. It gives a hint about what’s coming and what’s going to happen in the book.
Any other cover tidbits?
This cover is exciting and really beautiful, but a really cool thing about it that hasn’t been revealed yet is that it actually wraps around to a whole back of the jacket. If you take the jacket off, the whole image wraps around to an interior image that shows all of the rest of the other characters. They’ve never gotten their own covers, so this is a chance to see them for the last time. I think it’s something that people are really going to love. It makes the jacket a piece of art. Lue lisää »
Tämä tulee hieman myöhässä mutta parempi myöhään kuin ei milloinkaan ja pahoittelen päivitysten puuttumista, mutta nyt siihen toivottavasti tulee muutos, kun koulu on jälleen alkanut ja olen saanut elämäni normaaliin rytmiin.
Mortal Instruments: Kannet
Cassandra julkaisi viimein viimeisen kalenterikuvan, eli tyttöjen joulukuun kuvan joka näyttää minusta hyvältä. Eli siis kaikki tytöt, jotka ovat esiintyneet kalenterin muissa kuukausissa.
Tästä olisi ollut minulle apua, kun kirjoitin jouluficiä kalenteriin. Mutta no, itse ainakin tykkää tästä. Entäpä te?
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 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.
Hauskaa joulua kaikille! Pahoittelen, ettei joulukuun aikana ole pahemmin uutisia tullut, mutta kun niitä ei ole edes ollut, mutta joulukalenteria päivittelin sitäkin ahkerammin. Toivottavasti kaikki pitivät siitä. Palautetta olisi mukava saada vaikka tagboardille tai sitten kommenttina tähän alle. Mutta nyt minä jatkan suklaan mussuttamista, sekä Shadowhunter’s codexin lukemista. Voin postata siitä kuvia joskus, jos joku haluaa nähdä.
Sony on antanut näytille uusia videoita City of Bonesin kuvauksista. Ja ne olisivat tässä ja ne ovat todella hyviä.
