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!

Not For Humans Extra TMI Scene

You may have heard of a time referenced in one of The Mortal Instruments books where Jace ran down a street wearing nothing but a pair of antlers on his head. This story has some Mortal Instruments characters, as well as characters from Holly Black’s series, Modern Faerie Tale. It originally started out as a charity project where you donated money to a charity and received a pdf of the story, but now enough time has passed that it has been publicly published! You don’t need to know Holly Black’s characters to find this story humorous.

COG Deleted Scene

This is a deleted Jalec scene from City of Glass, where Jace kisses Alec to convince him that he’s not really in love with him.

“Drop it, Jace,” Alec said in a warning tone.

Jace was having none of being warned. “Magnus says it’s because you’re hung up on me. Is that true?”

There was a moment of utter silence. Then Alec gave a despairing howl of horror and put his hands up to cover his face. “I am going to kill Magnus. Kill him dead.”

“Don’t. He cares about you. He really does. I believe that,” Jace said, managing to sound only a little bit awkward. “Look. I don’t want to push you into anything, but do you maybe want to —”

“Call Magnus? Look, that’s a dead end, I know you’re trying to be helpful, but —”

“—kiss me?” Jace finished.

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.
