Here’s some interesting information that just came out. Actress Mae Whitman, who currently plays Amber Holt in the TV series Parenthoodand was also in the feature film The Perks of Being a Wallflower, will be the narrator on a new edition of Cassie Clare‘s first book of The Mortal Instruments series, City of Bones. Simon and Schuster made this announcement today…
As a sort of celebration of City of Heavenly Fire coming out (and the audiobook coming out — I think you guys will love the narrators) Simon&Schuster decided to re-record City of Bones (with the corrections that have been added over the years — Simon having one sister instead of two, for instance!) — with the lovely Mae Whitman as the narrator.
I always think of her as Ann from Arrested Development but she was also fantastic in Perks of Being a Wallflower. Mae!
“Simon,” said a voice at his shoulder, and he turned to see Izzy, her face a pale smudge between dark hair and dark cloak, looking at him, her expression half-angry, half-sad. “I guess this is the part where we say goodbye?”
HI CASSIE! Wow, i don’t know How to start. I love your books! Before reading your books i was like, not alone, but just didn’t felt complete. When i read what will said about books and that they make him feel that he was not alone, i was feeling so identified with him! I love Will, but who doesn’t? BACK TO THE POINT,I have a question that i really hope you could answer me. The question is about CoHF, about Helen Blacthorn. Because in the snippet i read it said that Julian was the oldest who escaped from the LA institute, Does that means that Hellen is gonna die? And if that’s so, does Helen count like one of the six name people? Love your books, please keep writting AMAZING stories — luchiodair
If Helen died in the beginning of the book, she would certainly count as one of the six named people who died. We know her well enough, and her relationships with the other characters, especially Aline and Alec, are important enough that she would absolutely count.
However the reason she isn’t in the Institute in the beginning of the book is because she’s in Idris with Aline. Helen is 18, and can go where she likes. So she simply isn’t home. That scene doesn’t mean she’s dead. I don’t think there are any snippets that point toward any particular deaths. Mark is also older than Julian, but that snippet doesn’t mean he’s dead either.
In the long-awaited conclusion to the acclaimed Mortal Instruments series, Clary and her friends fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary’s own brother.
Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Dark Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures out of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.
The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris — but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Idris, who will guard the world against demons?
When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee — even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned …
Love will be sacrificed and lives lost in the terrible battle for the fate of the world in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy series The Mortal Instruments!”
Shadowhunters all over the world are counting down the days until City of Heavenly Fire hits book stores on May 27 – less than 50 days! – and fans can now read a new (and scary) synopsis, which was published on Cassandra Clare’s official website.
