City of Fallen Angels Cover Revealed!

I know I said that I wasn't going to post, but I couldn't concentrate on my coursework after I saw this. If any of you have read Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series and loved it, then you've probably been waiting just as expectantly as I have for this cover to be revealed.

Without further ado, here it is:

I... I'm not sure if I like it. *Cries*. The bottom part is gorgeous, and matches up with the rest of the books really well. Plus, the swirls and patterns are stunning, but I don't like seeing Clary's face. It just doesn't seem right to me that her face is in full view, whereas on the previous covers the faces have been half chopped off. 

And the model for Clary looks really old as well. Couldn't they have found a younger one? I love her hair though! It's so pretty. 

Overall, I'm not a fan. But who cares about the cover? I think this is one book/series I will make an exception for. I refuse to judge this book by it's cover because I know it's going to be AWESOME! 

What do you guys think of the cover?

City of Fallen Angels is going to be released in April, 2011. *Cheers*


  1. That is exactly what I thought when I saw it! I kind of shut my mouth because everyone else seemed to love it.
    But yeah, Clary looks old and she doesn't have freckles! I asked Cassie on twitter, "Isn't Clary supposed to be young looking for her age?" and she responded back that the model they used was 16.
    Well, I guess I'm pretty much over it now; I agree, the cover doesn't matter that much, it's what's inside that matters. I'm just a bit disappointed that the model looks nothing like how I picture Clary to look.

  2. Haha, I had to say something about it. I'm glad someone agrees with me though, everywhere I look people seem to be loving it.

    16? I'm 18, and the model looks waaay older than I do. Then again, I have a baby face :L

    Lilly, who's cast in the movie, looks more like how I imagined Clary to look than the model on the cover :) But ah well, nothing we can do ;) Haha.

  3. The model looks older than me and I'm 22. I have the same problem that you do though: most people think I'm still in high school so there ya go. lol.
    I agree about Lily Collins. I think she's actually 21 years old but she looks younger than this model does.

  4. Yeah I agree with everything you said lol. It's so exciting to finally see this cover though. Been anticipating it for a while! Reading the third book now.

  5. I actually like this cover a lot. I think she makes a good Clary. :)

    She does look older though. Much older than the actress who will be playing her. 16? I never would have thought she was that young.

  6. I like it, just not as well as I liked the previous covers.

    Following you back, thanks for stopping by The Darcy Review!

  7. i like it but it is weird having her face in the picture. I can't wait for it to be released
