I just heard this from the lovely Cynthia from A Blog About Nothing, and discovered that the cover of CITY OF FALLEN ANGELS by Cassandra Clare, the much-anticipated fourth installment in the very popular Mortal Instruments series, has been released. Voila!

Read the article here: EW Exclusive.

Vital info you need to know:
  •  The book is set to be released in March-April, 2011.
  • City of Fallen Angels is an embargoed book, and that means that there will not be any Advance Reader Copies, and there will be a strict International sale date.
  • There is no excerpt for CoFA online (well, at least there shouldn't be), see Cassandra Clare's message about it here.
  • Teasers for CoFA are available here.

Cassandra Clare reading an excerpt from CoFA:


City of Fallen Angels takes place after the events of City of Glass. It splits its focus between Jace and Clary and Clary’s best friend, Simon, and how he adjusts to life as a vampire, but it’s still an ensemble-cast story, and all the characters from the Mortal Instruments series appear in it: Jace, Isabelle, Alec, Magnus, Luke, Jocelyn, Maia, and many more. (It even helps to have read The Clockwork Angel before you read CoFA, because some of the characters from the ID series do show up in it. However, it isn’t required.) In City of Fallen Angels, someone’s killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and leaving their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters. Internecine warfare among vampires is ripping the Downworld community apart, and only Simon — the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side — can decide the outcome; too bad he wants nothing to do with Downworld politics. Meanwhile Jace and Clary investigate a mystery that has deeply personal consequences for them — consequences that may strengthen their relationship, or rip it apart forever. Love, blood, betrayal and revenge: the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.

On another note, Lily Collins of The Blind Side has been cast as Clary in the 2012 adaptation of City of Bones! She's so stunning, and I think she looks like a perfect fit for the role of Clary. I don't know about her acting skills though...

I am so excited!! Have you guys heard any more news?
