Cassandra Clare book signing event in Florence, Italy

Cassandra Clare looks positively glowing! So good to see her again! :P 
We hadn't seen her since the publicity commitments for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (August) as she's been 'head down and bum up' writing the "City of Heavenly Fire", the last book in the series.

Now, not only did she meet her italian fans and sign their books, she also revealed another snippet from City of Heavenly Fire... (source & thanks to

The Shadowhunter's Codex - Out 29th October

To celebrate the release of The Shadowhunter's Codex, a few of the fansites will be tweeting #BetterInBlack on the 29th October 2013. Since aussie's are ahead timezone wise, join me in tweeting that hashtag on the day - we'll get it started :P

For more information on The Shadowhunters Codex, see the summary below...

Description: Delve into the details of all things Shadowhunter with this illustrated guide to the knowledge and lore of the Shadowhunter world.

Since the thirteenth century, the Shadowhunter's Codex has been the one and only manual for Shadowhunters looking to brush up on their demon languages, learn proper stele use, and discover just what exactly a pyxis is. Featured in both The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices, this guide is a necessity for any young Nephilim on their journey to becoming a Shadowhunter. Beautifully illustrated, the Codex contains images of the famous Shadowhunter homeland of Idris, as well as depictions of demons and other Downworlders.

But this isn't just any copy of The Shadowhunter's Codex. It's Clary's copy, and as an artist herself, she's sketched pictures of her friends and family in the book, and scrawled helpful advice in the margins. Of course, she couldn't exactly stop Jace or Simon from adding their thoughts either. Part encyclopedia, part history, part training manual-complete with commentary from Shadowhunters who have seen it all-this beautiful guide is a perfect supplement to the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

Please note: There is the normal and special edition
(The special edition comes in a beautiful slipcase with luxurious detailing that matches its historic importance. It’s as much a work of art as a training manual)
Where to buy: From the major US online bookstores and locally, from,, Angus &, and
Price: Around $17 - 30 AUD for the normal edition and $27 - 58 for the special edition (both prices are w/o shipping)
Do they ship to Australia: (Check the websites for details. Some have free shipping)
