Teaser Tuesday (44): City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week’s Teasers come from the following book:

Title: City of Heavenly Fire
(The Mortal Instruments #6)
Author: Cassandra Clare
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry
Published: May 27, 2014

Purchase:  Amazon | B&N


I am coming.

Darkness returns to the Shadowhunter world. As their society falls apart around them, Clary, Jace, Simon and their friends must band together to fight the greatest evil the Nephilim have ever faced: Clary’s own brother. Nothing in the world can defeat him — must they journey to another world to find the chance? Lives will be lost, love sacrificed, and the whole world changed in the sixth and last installment of the Mortal Instruments series!


My Teaser: 

"She was wearing a pair of flannel pajamas, too short in the leg 
and tight in the chest, with fire trucks on them.  

Luke raised an eyebrow.  'I think those were mine when I was a kid.'

 'You can't seriously tell me there wasn't anything else 
you could have put me in.'  

'If you insist on trying to get yourself killed, I insist on being the one who chooses what you wear while you recover, ' Jocelyn said with a tiny smirk.

  'The pajamas of vengeance,' Clary muttered."

This book. I read it in one sitting, and my eyes may never be the same.  Totally worth it. Very bittersweet and so hard to say goodbye to certain characters.  Of all the chilling, beautiful, and full-of-feels quotes I could have shared, I chose this funny tease because I didn't want to give away a single thing -- and because I have an obsession with nightwear and I find mothers choosing their daughters' clothes cruel and hilarious. 

I'd love to know what your Teaser is!



  1. This was such a funny moment... Jocelyn and I have our issues but this was a good moment from her. WONDERFUL TEASE! *smoosh*
