Few weeks ago, I read from Cassandra Clare live journal account about the signed copies of City Of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments book 4) which she will be releasing through Barnes and Nobles online store. This exclusive edition has the author signature and enclosed letter from Jace. This letter is the one Jace leaves in Clary’s room in City Of Glass, Book 3 of The Mortal Instruments series, before he leaves for a life-threatening mission. The content of this letter has never been revealed until now. The letter will be enclosed in the book as a separate piece, designed to look as if it was handwritten on stationery. The letter will be folded with a removable seal. The letter itself will be gummy glued into the inside back cover.
For some reason I didn’t purchase the signed exclusive edition right away. Today I finally decided to order my own copy, but was shocked to find out that the signed copies is not available anymore from Barnes and Nobles online store. The books were already sold out even before it hit the release date on April 5, 2011. Now, I totally regret why I didn’t purchase it back then.
Here is the book description from Goodreads:
City of Fallen Angels is the fourth book in the bestselling series The Mortal Instruments.
City of Fallen Angels takes place two months after the events of City of Glass. In it, a mysterious someone’s killing the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine’s Circle and displaying their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to provoke hostility between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, leaving tensions running high in the city and disrupting Clary’s plan to lead as normal a life as she can — training to be a Shadowhunter, and pursuing her relationship with Jace. As Jace and Clary delve into the issue of the murdered Shadowhunters, they discover a mystery that has deeply personal consequences for them — consequences that may strengthen their relationship, or rip it apart forever. Meanwhile, internecine warfare among vampires is tearing the Downworld community apart, and only Simon — the Daylighter who everyone wants on their side — can decide the outcome; too bad he wants nothing to do with Downworld politics. Love, blood, betrayal and revenge: the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels.
