Cassandra Clare has been really enthusiastic in answering queries and sharing short snippets (and loads of superb pictures by Cassandra Jean, which you can find on her Tumblr page or Twitter) with us.


Idris had been green and gold and russet in the autumn, when Clary had first been there. It had a stark grandeur in the winter: the mountains rose in the distance, capped white with snow, and the trees along the side of the road that led back to Alicante from the lake were stripped bare, their leafless branches making lace-like patterns against the bright sky.
Sometimes Jace would slow the horse to point out the manor houses of the richer Shadowhunter families, hidden from the road when the trees were full but revealed now. She felt his shoulders tense as they passed one that nearly melded with the forest around it: it had clearly been burned and rebuilt. Some of the stones still bore the black marks of smoke and fire. “The Blackthorn manor,” he said. “Which means that around this bend in the road is …” He paused as Wayfarer summited a small hill, and reined him in so they could look down to where the road split in two. One direction led back toward Alicante — Clary could see the demon towers in the distance — while the other curled down toward a large building of mellow golden stone, surrounded by a low wall. “ … the Herondale manor,” Jace finished.
The wind picked up; icy, it ruffled Jace’s hair. Clary had her hood up, but he was bare-headed and bare-handed, having said he hated wearing gloves when horseback riding. He liked to feel the reins in his hands. “Did you want to go and look at it?” she asked.
His breath came out in a white cloud. “I’m not sure.”


We all franticly wait for the last book of The Mortal Instruments series, which is already even more special, since there are some special content in the first editions, but Cassandra Clare has just managed to make it even more more special. She has signed a couple thousands of City of Heavenly Fire. Aaaaand you can get them now. However when they're gone, there will be no more, so if you want to procure one, you should be fast. They are pre-orders and get delivered on publication day. They, of course, also have the special 1st edition art inside. (Yay!)

Barnes and Noble ship/send the books, within the U.S. as well as outside of it. (You can obtain more information about international shipping HERE)

She'll be appearing at a con where she'll be signing the last book of The Mortal Instruments, City of Heavenly Fire. Date and venue HERE.

The latest TLH Q&A:

"Matthew Fairchild has been pictured with a green carnation multiple times. Is this a hint to his sexuality?

Mm, doin’ your history research! Oscar Wilde popularized the wearing of green carnations with the opening of his play Lady Windermere’s Fan. Because of him, the wearing of green carnations did become a symbol for gay male communities in London and Paris. 
The green carnation though does mean more than that. 
Oscar Wilde and the Green Carnation: Note that the green carnation that Wilde wore in his buttonhole was not natural. A florist had to dye a carnation in order to make it green. It had to be created. The green carnation has resonances that encompass not only Wilde’s sexuality, but his views on literature and art.
Matthew is a fan of Oscar Wilde (dead three years by the time Last Hours begins) and the aesthetic movement, which believed that art didn’t need to be moral, it just needed to be beautiful — challenging the predominant didactic ethos of Victorian art and writing, which believed the sole purpose of art was to educate and elevate.

So anyway, that’s a long way of saying Matthew might be gay, or he might be bisexual, or he might be straight and a fan of the aesthetic movement. We must wait to see. There is a gay male romance in The Last Hours, and also a lesbian pairing. 
Hi Cassie! I’m so excited for TLH and all these questions you answer make me even more excited! Anyway, I was wondering who has more of the Herondale’s bitter sense of humor, James or Lucie? Also, since Will prefers Lucie to marry Alistair, would that cause a conflict between them? I can imagine Will being that overprotected wait here while I go get my gun type of dad haha
Well, Will would like Lucie to marry Alastair eventually. Like, when she’s 21 and he’s 27. Not, like, right at the moment. Is he going to be thrilled about Lucie’s partially dead love interest? Probably not. :) Stuff is complicated though and so is Lucie’s love life! And Lucie and James kind of have their own senses of humor, but both of them have a bit of Will.
How much of Jem is going to be in The Last Hours series? Will there be a series (if Jem and Tessa have kids) from the maybe kids of Jem and Tessa? One more will there be any Jem and Will interactions? I one hundred percent understand if you aren’t able to answer these questions. Thank you so much for saving me with your writing!
Hello, Jem fan! Yes, I see you there, being all about Jem. That is ok. I also love Jem. I cannot tell you much about Jem’s future — I’d say come back and ask after City of Heavenly Fire. But yes, he and Will interact in The Last Hours. I always figured that once Jem was off being an SB, Will would spend his time making up reasons why he needed to see the Silent Brothers or visit the City of Bones constantly.
Will: I have cut my finger! I need to see the Silent Brothers!
Henry: Surely it will heal on its own?
