stripperwithaheartofgold asked you: Hey! I love The Mortal Instruments, and I was wondering if parabati were always boy/boy or girl/girl. Like, could it be a boy and a girl? I was wondering because you’ve called them like sister or brothers, not siblings. Also, does every Shadowhunter have one,…
The demon Lilith has been destroyed and Jace has been freed from her captivity. But when the Shadowhunters arrive to rescue him, they find only blood and broken glass. Not only is the boy Clary loves missing–but so is the boy she hates, Sebastian, the son of her father Valentine: a son determined to succeed where their father failed, and bring the Shadowhunters to their knees.
No magic the Clave can summon can locate either boy, but Jace cannot stay away—not from Clary. When they meet again Clary discovers the horror Lilith’s dying magic has wrought—Jace is no longer the boy she loved. He and Sebastian are now bound to each other, and Jace has become what he most feared: a true servant of Valentine’s evil. The Clave is determined to destroy Sebastian, but there is no way to harm one boy without destroying the other. Will the Shadowhunters hesitate to kill one of their own?
Only a small band of Clary and Jace’s friends and family believe that Jace can still be saved — and that the fate of the Shadowhunters’ future may hinge on that salvation. They must defy the Clave and strike out on their own. Alec, Magnus, Simon and Isabelle must work together to save Jace: bargaining with the sinister Faerie Queen, contemplating deals with demons, and turning at last to the Iron Sisters, the reclusive and merciless weapons makers for the Shadowhunters, who tell them that no weapon on this earth can sever the bond between Sebastian and Jace. Their only chance of cutting Jace free is to challenge Heaven and Hell — a risk that could claim any, or all, of their lives.
And they must do it without Clary. For Clary has gone into the heart of darkness, to play a dangerous game utterly alone. The price of losing the game is not just her own life, but Jace’s soul. She’s willing to do anything for Jace, but can she even still trust him? Or is he truly lost? What price is too high to pay, even for love?
Darkness threatens to claim the Shadowhunters in the harrowing fifth book of the Mortal Instruments series -quoted from Goodreads
Cassie Clare is an author who proves to me time and time again just how brilliant of a writer she is. She has this ability to make me fall in love with her complex characters, her richly detailed world building and the entire history that makes up her Shadowhunter world. For me, her books go beyond loving fictional characters and wishing I could visit some of her fictional places that exist in the real world. It’s the connection I feel to the series, to what some of the characters are dealing with and what they’re going through. I emotionally wrap myself around everything that’s going on. With City of Lost Souls she completely hooked me and took me on one heck of emotional roller coaster, and I enjoyed every moment of being back into this world I love so much.

I just wanted to update and say — I am not dead or avoiding the internet! I have been traveling, and I also have a lot of asks regarding the post I made yesterday about feminism and sexual abuse. It was a pretty heavy-duty post and the asks are very personal and some very painful. I am going…
UK fans will be in for a special treat THIS SATURDAY when Cassie Clare will be stopping for the first stop in her UK tour.

Twitter Tuesday: @CassieClare talks Rape Myths, Rape Culture and the Damage Done.
Sophie posted an awesome TT post today, which is in reference to Cassie’s tumblr post yesterday. Here’s what Sophie posted today:
Cassie posted what I feel is one of her most important posts on her tumblr yesterday. This post was inspired by reader questions/reactions. I’m so very happy that she mirrored all my thoughts and feelings on the subject. Of course, she did it way more eloquently than I ever would have.
Here’s her post on “Rape Myths, Rape Culture and the Damage Done.” Do yourself a favor and read it in its entirety here. *SPOILERS are in Cassie’s post*
Under this cut are spoilers for City of Lost Souls, but also an in-depth discussion of sexual assault as it pertains to books in general and The Mortal Instruments in specific, with a discussion of rape culture and rape myths. There is also an excerpt from a scene that contains a violent physical assault.
Don’t miss out on a new feature I’m taking part in with a few other lovely TMI fan sites, hosted by TMI Source. Each Monday TMI Source is hosting a Movie Monday post where each site weighs in on a topic related to the TMI movie. Check out today’s post here.
I am endlessly impressed by the way that http://tmisource.tumblr.com/ seems to have movie information about TMI that even I don’t have. :D Though I do at least know who the frontrunners for most of the parts are … but it’s an ongoing process so that could change.
Also, anyone worried that they were going to cut out Magnus and Alec, or cast Magnus with a white guy, hopefully the audition descriptions will be reassuring.
(As to why they are looking at ages older than the characters: people tend to look much younger than they are onscreen, in that age group. 18 year olds look 12. This is normal casting for teen characters (Jennifer Lawrence is 21, Liam Hemsworth 22, etc.)
It’s not really a question, but an observation. I understand the reasons, but on Facebook after the recent post about TMI casting information a lot of fans are confused as to why they would want an Asian actor for Magnus Bane. Think you could clear it up, once…
