Lady Midnight Inside Cover Image

If you buy the Costco version of Lady Midnight, you also receive a Cassandra Jean picture on the inside cover, but Cassandra Clare posted the picture to her Tumblr so everyone could see it!

I thought you guys might like to see the jacket interior illustration Cassandra Jean did for the Costco version of Lady Midnight, with each character labeled. I don’t own a copy myself but I’ve seen it and it’s very pretty! These are the TMI and TDA characters, portrayed together — not every one of the TMI character appears in Lady Midnight, but they do appear through the series. And there’s one TDA character that is left out, because, spoilers :) 

You can see all of the main characters in Lady Midnight, and also some TMI characters that will be in the future TDA books!

Song Inspired by The Mortal Instruments

This song was written by a girl named Lorna Elvin inspired by The Mortal Instruments series. It’s called “Clary” from the point of view of Simon. It’s so cute and has a lot of little references to parts of the book. I really recommend listening to the beautiful piece and wonderful vocals and lyrics over and over again!

Full Clace Cave Scene

*****TMI AND TID SHIP SPOILERS*****

As you know, sometimes authors have to edit scenes of their books for various reasons. This scene is the Clace cave scene from City of Heavenly Fire, which Cassie had to tone down to make less “racy”. Cassie says there is also a racier version of the Wessa cave scene of Clockwork Princess, she just has to find it, but will release it when she does. 🙂

For a moment Jace just looked at her in astonishment, his lips parted slightly; Clary felt her cheeks flush. He was looking at her like she was the first star that had ever come out in the sky, a miracle painted across the face of the world that he could barely believe in. He swallowed. “Let me —“ he said, and broke off. “Can I kiss you? Please?”

COLS Deleted Snippet

This snippet is from the fifth Mortal Instruments book, City of Lost Souls. This is after Jace becomes evil, and Cassie ended up rewriting this scene for the book, but this was the first draft.

Clary didn’t know how long she’d been sitting on Luke’s front steps when the sun began to come up. It rose behind his house, the sky turning a dark pinkish-rose, the river a strip of steely blue. She was shivering — had been shivering so long that her whole body seemed to have contracted into a single hard shudder of cold. She had used two warming runes, but they hadn’t helped; she had a feeling the shivering was psychological as much as anything else. Would he come? If he was still as much Jace inside as she thought he was, he would; when he said he would come back for her, he would have meant as soon as possible. Jace was impatient. And he didn’t play games.
