The book cover for the final book in Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series was revealed tonight on The Insider. The cover for the "City of Heavenly Fire" features Clary and Sebastian. These books feature two characters per cover but for the final book an inside cover will feature even more fan favorites. "Jace, Alec, Izzy, Simon and Maia have the inside cover," tweeted Clare.
Of course fans inquired about fan favorite Magnus. "B/c they could only fit 5 characters and Magnus has the cover of the Bane Chronicles," said Clare when asked as to why the warlock didn't make the cut.
The cover shows a rather ominous and fiery skyline. I'm questioning if the skyline is more than the usual New York setting mostly because of some of the buildings. However, we don't get too close of a look at the skyline because the center focus is on Clary dressed in white besides her very dark (I'm talking in appearance and personality here) brother Sebastian. It could be argues either way that Clary is walking away from or towards Sebastian. She is holding a dagger and runes are clearly shining out from her body. Knowing what we've seen from Clary's abilities in the past we're sure to be in for more surprises from our heroine.
Clare also spoke to The Insider. You can see her interview here.
Fans reacted positively to the truly stunning cover and even put Clary and Jace on the Worldwide Twitter trending list. Below are some of the reactions (not including all the "likes" and "I love it" comments:)
@LaurisEileen "I'm going to die."
@AwesomeTWfan "Stunning! I love it!
@RhythmWithLove "its the most beautiful cover yet!! But the fact that Clary is in white sort of scares me."
City of Heavenly Fire comes out May 27 and can be preordered now.
