Me when I found out the release date:

Just finished City of Lost Souls and now I have to wait 2 more YEARS before I can read this book! It's going to be torture I tell you! Pure TORTURE! At least Clockwork Princess is coming out in 2013 otherwise I think I might go insane from this wait!
I LOVE the title it just makes you want to read this even more. I mean who wouldn't want to read a book called City of Heavenly Fire?
On another note...if Magnus and Alec don't get back together someone is going to

With each passing moon, my interest in this last installment of the TMI series (it's the last, Clare. The LAST! No more after this. We're fucking done, okay?) wanes.

I will of course read this. But expect the same level of enthusiasm as is exhibited by a houseplant toward sandwiches.

If City of Heavenly Fire is to be published year 2013, it evidently means that there will be no end of the world year 2012! This is GOOD news!

*UPDATE* 25/11-2012
We WILL survive! Ms. Clare wouldn't do this to us if she wasn't ABSOLUTELY sure the world isn't ending in less than a month... *me looks nervously at the calendar*

UPDATE 1/15/14

So the cover was released. Though I appreciate that the faces are a little more implicit than they were in the past two, I'm rather disappointed; there's something a little cheesy about it, and it looks kind of like a rehash of CoFA. Plus, Clary's hair... I get that she's part angel, but that's such an unnatural shade of red, and I never got the vibe that she dyed it. Also the city-scape at the bottom was always a favorite element, and it's just not as prominent here, so I'm bummed...more

Edit (1/17/14): That cover is epic, but I really wish Malec was on it instead!


Edit (3/12/13) - I just noticed that it says on the bottom of the placeholder: "Cover to be revealed when you least expect it".

Original:
Cassandra Clare why are you doing this to us? March 19, 2014 is way too far away, this is pure torture. How could she end it on a spectacular cliffhanger then expect us to wait 2 whole years?

Clockwork Princess is already out! I hope everything works out between Tessa, Will, and J

Hmm…although I have only read the first three books of TMI, I can't possibly imagine how Cassandra Clare wrote THREE MORE DANG BOOKS!!! Did anyone else think that City of Glass wrapped everything up nicely? I did. With everyone happy. The Downworlders and Shadowhunters forgetting their pasts and mingling. Maryse being okay with Alec and Magnus (that part was so sweet. I smiled whenever they came up.) Clary and Jace together. Simon accepting his sunny-albeit bloody- fate. Happiness for all!!!!!

Why are you doing this to me!!! I love Cassandra Clare's books but I'm gonna hate her forever for making me wait this long!! It's bad enough I have to wait about half a year for COLS, now I have to wait more than a year after COLS for COHF!!! This is ABSOLUTELY THE WORST KIND OF TORTURE IN THE WORLD!!!! I should have waited till the end of 2013 then bought COFA, COLS and COHF but I couldn't keep my hands of COFA. And now how am I feeling you ask?

Oh my gosh, less than 50 days until CoHF comes out!! *fangirls* I've been waiting for this for so long... And now the time is almost upon us. Who will live? Will will die? Will the shadowhunters be able to defeat Sebastian once and for all? Or will they die trying?

Edit2: So this is the real cover... It's cool, but I think I like the fan-made one a tad bit more... Don't you?? But it's still nice. :)

THIS BETTER BE GOOD IF I'M WAITING UNTIL MARCH MAY 2014.

I have no idea why I'm going to read this.

Perhaps I am a masochist.

City of Lost Souls was freaking awful.

But I have to know how it ends.

And maybe it will magically get better.

Also it will probably have a gorgeous cover.

And I have no self-control whatsoever.

“No killing,” Jordan said. “We’re trying to make you feel peaceful, so you don’t go up in flames. Blood, killing, war, those are all non-peaceful things. Isn’t there anything else you like? Rainforests? Chirping birds?”
“Weapons,” said Jace. “I like weapons.”
“I’m starting to think we have a problematic issue of personal philosophy here.”
Jace leaned forward, his palms flat on the ground. “I’m a warrior,” he said. “I was brought up as a warrior. I didn’t have toys, I had weapons. I slep

I. Need. A. Good. Ending.

After 6 six books, this needs to end after everything we want to happen in this book happens. I want to see those characters living a happy life after everything is done.
I want to see Clary and Jace get closer again. Really cloose. :)
I want to see Theresa Gray.
I want Magnus and Alexander back.
I want Simon and Isabelle.
I want a girlfight for Jace between Tessa and Clary.

Waiting two years totally ruins the streak. Everybody will forget about Jace and all his petty-but-dramatic problems by then.

700 pages?!?! What is this, Gone with the Wind? And also, I hope that by saying that this is the SIXTH and FINAL installment to the TMI series, they mean it this time.

Malec.

AKA the only reason I even read these books anymore. Seriously, what IS the plot now...? Is it just the roller coaster of Jace and Clasry's can/can't relationship? It's stale. Those two (Magnus and Alec) are the only interesting things in these books anymore besides the references to the Infernal Devices which I love

Heaven against Hell, eh?

OH MY! NEVER SEEN THAT ONE BEFORE!

Also, guess what I was thinking for a moment?

Jace shrugged. “Guys don’t let other guys keep calling other guys. Okay, that came out wrong. Friends don’t let friends keep calling their exes and hanging up. Seriously. You have to stop.”
Alec looked furious. “So you broke my brand new phone? Thanks a lot.”
Jace smiled serenely and lay back on the grass. “You’re welcome.”
