City of Heavenly Fire Teasers in Pictures

Yesterday TMI fans were sharing the collection of Cassandra Jean's artwork of teasers from City of Heavenly Fire. Most of these are images that have already been posted, but seeing them all together is a little bit different. I just wish we knew what order these went in..... wait, no I don't. I don't want to know who dies.  Here are those pictures, and what Cassie had to say.

Emma & Clary

Jace & Jem

Sebastian & Clary 

Jace & Clary 

Cassie: I was feeling bad about being unforthcoming with spoilers, so have some Clace feels from Cassandra Jean’s postcard set for City of Heavenly Fire! (Yes, these are all scenes that happen.)

It appears there will be a lot of kissing and make out scenes in CoHF. I swear Cassie is going to kill us with those moments. But,City of Heavenly Fire wouldn't be a true Shadowhunter story without the kissy scenes followed by death and destruction. lol
