City of Heavenly Fire Spoilery Art

Oh my heavens, Cassie put this piece of spoilery City of Heavenly Fire art by Cassandra Jean and my heart went THUD.

Here's what Cassie said on her tumblr:
With Clockwork Princess now out for a month, I’ve decided it’s time to start mixing up answers about Clockwork Princess with a few teasers for the last book in that other series. This teaser isn’t words, it’s art. I won’t make any promises about what it means but I think you’ll like it. ;) It IS A SPOILER though, so it’s under a cut.


Simon and Schuster announces the Shadowhunters Guide, Movie Companion and Movie Tie-In Edition,

Lots of good news coming out from Simon and Schuster today as far as City of Bones movie publications go -- the City of Bones Shadowhunters Guide will be released on July 9, 2013. It will retail for $8.99 and it'll contain 128 pages. Here's what Simon and Schuster's website has for the synopsis:

This comprehensive book features full-color photographic portraits and profiles of the film characters, quotes from the script, detailed information on downworlders, Shadowhunters, the Clave, and more. Fans of the movie won’t want to miss this must-have guide to the realm of the blockbuster City of Bones movie!

There is also the City of Bones Movie Companion which will be released "around July 9th" as well:

Here's the synopsis on the movie companion:

Get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones movie with this official companion book. This fan favorite features full-color photos from the set, designers’ sketches, interviews with the cast and crew, and more!

Cassie was asked if the Shadowhunters Guide and the movie companion were written by her and here's her response:

The two guides they’re talking about are guides to the movie and are not written by me. The Codex is a guide to the books — all the books — written by me and my husband.
That's a great clarification, and we can't leave this post without showing you the City of Bones movie tie-in book. Doesn't it look perfect??
