Why that white dress is worrisome to ‘Mortal Instruments’ fans

Like any true fandom, readers of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series quickly started analyzing the book cover for the upcoming “City of Heavenly Fire” upon its reveal. The greatest cause for concern is that Clary is wearing white. What makes white so ominous? Previously Clare shared a snippet from “City of Heavenly Fire” in the form of a children’s rhyme.

"Black for hunting through the night
For death and sorrow, the color’s white
Gold for a bride in her wedding gown,
And red to call enchantment down.”
— children’s rhyme based on the colors they wear

Clare has said that characters will die in the final book of her Internationally popular series. However, before you get too nervous keep in mind that white isn’t just for death but also sorrow. With people dying around her we shouldn’t be surprised that Clary is wearing white.

The much-anticipated “City of Heavenly Fire” comes out May 27. Though it may mark the end of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series we haven’t read the last of her Shadowhunter universe. Clare is set to pen several more series centered in the world of the Shadowhunters.
