Update 12-05-21, finished reading: Wow. Absolutely 'wow'. Spectacular. City of Heavenly Fire, I'm coming for you...
Before reading CoLS (and this applies to CoHF as well)
How. Am. I. Supposed. To. Wait. A. Whole. Year. For. This. One !!!!!!!!! I want it so badly, right now!
If - and it's not very likely to happen, but IF - the world ends in 2012, and this one has not come out, then I'll be so pissed that even the zombies, or demons, or Mother Nature, whatever, will shit their pants in fear of me. I'll be THAT pissed. You better watch your sorry ass if you plan to end the world for me before I've had a chance to read this book.
I, for one, think it's going to end in some supernatural way. Either it's zombies - which I probably fear the most, since I'm shit-scared of zombies - or it's demons. Pick one. Yes, it probably sounds very weird that I'm sickly scared of zombies, but they'd still shit their pants if they decided to end the world before I got to read 'City of Lost Souls'. Hm, ain't that confusing. Let's see it like this. I'm scared of them now, but if you get me pissed enough... then you better start running.
Oh. My. Fucking. God. THAT COVER IS EPIC!!!! Okay, so I still don't picture Clary like that... and it's the same for City of Fallen Angels (obviously, since it's the same model), but Jace... oh, Jace... he is something special, isn't he Lovely! :D Yes, I like it... if only a bit rougher around the edges, then I'd be perfectly happy :D Bu awesome! :D
At a club in Missing Mile, N.C., the children of the night gather, dressed in black, looking for acceptance. Among them are Ghost, who sees what others do not. Ann, longing for love, and Jason, whose real name is Nothing, newly awakened to an ancient, deathless truth about his father, and himself.
Others are coming to Missing Mile tonight. Three beautiful, hip vagabonds – Molochai, Twig, and the seductive Zillah (whose eyes are as green as limes) are on their own lost journey; slaking their ancient thirst for blood, looking for supple young flesh.
They find it in Nothing and Ann, leading them on a mad, illicit road trip south to New Orleans. Over miles of dark highway, Ghost pursues, his powers guiding him on a journey to reach his destiny, to save Ann from her new companions, to save Nothing from himself…
