Quick question, how many pages are there in City of heavenly fire? Because on amazon.com it says 752 pages and on Walmart.com it says 496 pages. Do you see my dilemma here? I don’t know which site is correct so I can’t pre-order until I know otherwise. Please answer and thank you :) — yurlate4tea
My copy is around the 733 page mark. There’s no difference between the Walmart edition and any other edition in terms of the story, so you shouldn’t worry about whatever page number they have listed. It’s all the same book.
Are the covers for the bane chronicles like a puzzle? When they’re put together do they form a picture of magnus? I noticed two covers went together and wondered if they all went together… — ponderfulamelia
Yes, they do! Very clever.
Hello, Ms. Clare. You’ve been a favorite author of mine for several years, and I’m really happy that I’m going to get to meet you at the City of Heavenly Fire book launch in New York City. :) Thank you so much for writing these books. — venivedivici
Hurrah! Glad you are coming. For those who might not know, the launch party for City of Heavenly Fire will be at the 92nd Street Y in New York City on March 26th. Details and tickets here.
You should sell signed first editions of City of Heavenly Fire. For the ones of us that arent able to go to one of you signing events cause we live outside the states. — mejampo
I signed about 2,000 first editions of City of Heavenly Fire for Barnes and Noble (not that the COHF books have been printed yet, but I signed the first pages and they’ll be bound in. So you’ll be able to order them from B&N soon. I’ll put up the link when I have it. Every one will also be stamped with a rune stamp, and some of them — totally randomly — have my sketch of Church in them. That’s sort of a lottery, whether you end up with one of those, though. And you can always get signed books of mine from Books of Wonder.
"Hi! I was just wondering… Will The Bane Chronicles be released in print? and if so, when? I’m dying to know because I can’t wait to read them and I didn’t buy all of the ebooks (because real books smell better ;) Also, having the other characters on the reverse side of the CoHF cover is a great idea, and I can understand how that would work on a hardcover edition, but what about the paperback? Will the other characters somehow be on that version as well? because we are mostly deprived of beautiful hardcover books here in Australia :( I hope you have time to answer this but I understand if you don’t… and while I’m here I might as well say that TMI is my favourite book series so far and thank you for being an amazing author and for creating Alec and Magnus! Can’t wait to read CoHF even though I’m terrified :) — magnus-bane"
Anticipatory and terrified is exactly how you should be! :) Yep, the Bane Chronicles will be released in print — the current publication date for the print edition of the Bane Chronicles is November 11 of this year.
"Hi I’m sorry to bother you,I know you are busy creating my next favorite book. I was just wondering if City of Heavenly Fire will have any extras? Thank You So much for your time! — puppylove216"
Well, all the first editions of City of Heavenly Fire have a portrait on the inside of Jace, Simon, Maia, Alec and Isabelle done by Cliff Nielson, who does all my covers. Only the hardcover first editions sold by Simon and Schuster in the US and Canada will have that portrait on the inside cover. All the books will also come with a note from one of the characters in the end that is handwritten and printed, and leads into the Dark Artifices series. That’s every book, not just the first editions. As to how to buy first editions — basically first editions are all the copies in a publisher’s first print run. They last until they sell out. So the earlier you order a book the more likely you are to get one.
As UK fans me and my Parabatai Heather were wondering if the UK will get the city of heavenly fire treatment, the letters attatched to tbe books as that sounds epic. Enternally grateful for the creation of this verse — — evigmidnatstopwatchgirl
I don’t know for sure yet how the UK/Australia is going to handle the inclusion of the extra illustrations, etc. Usually they are good about trying to have the same content so when I do know more, I’ll post about it.
It’s true. :)
