Tis The Season for a City of Heavenly Fire DELETED Scene From @CassieClare

Tis the season for Shadowhunter gift! Cassandra Clare has delivered the perfect gift. 
Check out what she's shared with fans. A deleted scene from City of Heavenly Fire!

In the spirit of the holidays, more deleted and cut things! In this case, the comic Cassandra Jean drew for some editions of City of Heavenly Fire. It’s a scene I sketched out but deleted (there’s nothing written to post, just notes) because it didn’t fit — Magnus sends Emma, Julian and the Blackthorns back through a Portal to Los Angeles. Jace and Clary come to say goodbye. The passing of the torch, to a new group. And some Clace. :)

*Sigh* Now that's a perfect Shadowhunter gift.
