The cover for 'city of fallen angels' by Cassandra Clare, has been released and it is absolutely gorgeous. at first i wasnt to happy about both Clary and Simon on the cover, but i re-checked the cover and i love it. here is the picture of the cover, hopefully Cassandra doesnt decide to change it.

Here is an excert from the COFA, nothing is given away. i will be giving out more excerts over time. and also keeping you updated on any new imformation from Cassandra Clare regarding the new Mortal Instruments book, aswell as the second novel in the Infernal Devices 'Clockwork Prince'. I am so excited for these two books to come out, i honestly have no words for how wound up I am to get my hands on them.

Simon glanced toward the window. It was a brisk night, and the wind was blowing leaves across Second Avenue like handfuls of thrown confetti. There was a girl walking down the street, a girl in a tight belted trench coat, with long black hair that flew in the wind. People turned to watch her as she walked past. Simon had looked at girls like that before in the past, idly wondering where they were going, who they were meeting. Not guys like him, he knew that much.
Except this one was. The bell on the diner’s front door rang as the door opened, and Isabelle Lightwood came in. She smiled when she saw Simon, and came toward him, shrugging off her coat and draping it over the back of the chair before she sat down. Under the coat she was wearing one of what Clary called her “typical Isabelle outfits”: a tight short velvet dress, fishnet stockings, and boots. There was a knife stuck into the top of her left boot that Simon knew only he could see; still, everyone in the diner was watching as she sat down, flinging her hair back. Whatever she was wearing, Isabelle drew attention like a fireworks display.
Beautiful Isabelle Lightwood. When Simon had met her, he’d assumed she’d have no time for a guy like him. He’d turned out to be mostly right. Isabelle liked boys her parents disapproved of, and in her universe that meant Downworlders-faeries, werewolves, and vamps. That they’d been dating regularly for the past month or two amazed him, even if their relationship was limited mostly to infrequent meetings like this one. And even if he couldn’t help but wonder, if he’d never been changed into a vampire, if his whole life hadn’t been altered in that moment, would they be dating now?
-City of Fallen Angels, Cassandra Clare

happy reading <3

  1. That exerpt was good lol. I've seen this cover on other blogs and they say it's Jace, but that's extremely hard to believe. I can kind of picture this more of being Simon than Jace though. So excited for this book!
