When author Cassandra Clare addressed the delay of "City of Ashes" production, she was kind enough to share an image of her current project "City of Heavenly Fire" though the image may not have done much to ease fans' fears. The author is currently in Provence writing the final installment of her Mortal Instruments series.
Clare shared an image of her laptop with enlarged text. The text is hard to make out due to the sun's glare but don't worry this fandom could do it.
“Oh, God,” Magnus said. “They’re dead. They’re all dead.”
Of course Magnus Bane is know to exaggerate and as Clare later teased on Twitter, he could be referring to plants. We won't know the answer to this puzzle until the book comes out in May 2014.
Clare also shared a second snippet on Tumblr.

It looks like Clary may put her talent to work and introduce us to a new rune in "City of Heavenly Fire." What do you think of these snippets?
