City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare celebrated it’s first birthday on May 27th, 2015. City of Heavenly is the last & final book in the most well-known young adult series, The Mortal Instrument by Cassandra Clare. For readers who have followed Cassandra Clare City of Bones was released on March 27th, 2007. So it’s been 8 years that the very first TMI been born. That’s crazy! It probably makes sense why Clare couldn’t let go of these characters. They probably mean a lot to her just like how much these characters mean to us.
To celebrate City of Heavenly Fire‘s first bookaversary, we’re going to put some memorable quotes. We’ll try not spoil you since I (Ellen) also haven’t read the book yet too! haha
“Freely we serve/ Because we freely love, as in our will/To love or not; in this we stand or fall.”
“Black for hunting through the night/ For death and mourning the color’s white/Gold for a bride in her wedding gown/ And red to call the enchantment down.”
“Heroes aren’t always the ones who win,” she said. “They’re the ones who lose, sometimes. But they keep fighting, they keep coming back. They don’t give up. That’s what makes them heroes.”
“Temper us in fire, and we grow stronger. When we suffer, we survive.”
Alright, so I think those are enough quotes for now. Now, let us know which book in the TMI series is your favorite. And just let us know your general thoughts on the entire series. If you’ve read them or did not read them, and so forth. You get the gist right? Awesome. 🙂
