City of Heavenly Fire

The Mortal Instruments: Book Six

by Cassandra Clare

05 . 27 . 14

 

From Amazon: 

Clare

Shadowhunters and demons square off for the final showdown in the spellbinding, seductive conclusion to the #1 New York Timesbestselling Mortal Instruments series.

Darkness has descended on the Shadowhunter world. Chaos and destruction overwhelm the Nephilim as Clary, Jace, Simon, and their friends band together to fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary’s own brother. Nothing in this world can defeat Sebastian—but if they journey to the realm of demons, they just might have a chance…

Lives will be lost, love sacrificed, and the whole world will change. Who will survive the explosive sixth and final installment of the Mortal Instruments series?

 

Why I am waiting: 

I started this series after watching the movie that came out.  I thought the movie was okay, and figured that since the book is usually better, I should give it a try.  It took me a little bit of time to get into Clare’s writing style,but once I did, I really enjoyed the book.  I thought that the premise for the novels was really interesting, and I kinda liked that Clary was a little nerdy.  I tore through the series, and simply want to see how it is going to end.

 

What are you waiting on….? 

 

Ps. This is a super short post for 2 reasons: 1) I had work from 5AM until 2PM and then read Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop (which was awesome, so being super tired is well worth it), and 2) One of my cats, Hazy, has decided that he can climb my wall to wall book shelves and is currently hanging off of them pulling books off one by one, because sometimes he likes to be a jerk.

Murder of Crows

A Novel of Others 

by Anne Bishop

03 . 04 . 14

 

From Amazon: Murder of Crows

Return to New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop’s “phenomenal” (Urban Fantasy Investigations) world of the Others—where supernatural entities and humans struggle to co-exist, and one woman has begun to change all the rules…

After winning the trust of the terra indigene residing in the Lakeside Courtyard, Meg Corbyn has had trouble figuring out what it means to live among them. As a human, Meg should be barely tolerated prey, but her abilities as a cassandra sangue make her something more.

The appearance of two addictive drugs has sparked violence between the humans and the Others, resulting in the murder of both species in nearby cities. So when Meg has a dream about blood and black feathers in the snow, Simon Wolfgard—Lakeside’s shape-shifting leader—wonders if their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or a future threat.

As the urge to speak prophecies strikes Meg more frequently, trouble finds its way inside the Courtyard. Now, the Others and the handful of humans residing there must work together to stop the man bent on reclaiming their blood prophet—and stop the danger that threatens to destroy them all.

 

 

I have always loved Anne Bishop’s work.  I even made my husband drive 6 hours with me to go meet her.   I was originally a bit skeptical about this series.  Most of her other books are written in more traditional fantasy lands.  However, once I gave Written in Red a chance, I could NOT put it down…and have actually re-read it since.  Once after recommending Written in Red to one of my closest friends, I received a text that said “I finished the book, and I hate you.  Did you know the sequel doesn’t come out until next year?!”  Along with others, I have been waiting for this book for what feels like forever (though its only been about a year) and have already requested off from work on March 4th so I don’t have to waste any time getting started.

 

 

What are you waiting on…?

 

P.S. So EXCITED!!
