The week is clearly all about The Mortal Instruments. After the trailer was released, the official Twitter was opened and Cassie promised a snippet from City of Heavenly Fire if the fans could get it to 5,000 followers.

Needless to say it took less than an hour for the official Twitter, @MortalMovie to reach that number. Now Cassie has given us another treat. Check out the snippet from City of Heavenly Fire below. Be warned, this does contains spoilers for the series, so if you aren’t caught up, read it at your own risk!

“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 slept with a wooden sword until I was five. My first books were medieval demonologies with illuminated pages. The first songs I learned were chants to banish demons. I know what brings me peace, and it isn’t sandy beaches or chirping birds in rainforests. I want a weapon in my hand and a strategy to win.”

Jordan looked at him levelly. “So you’re saying that what brings you peace … is war.”

“Now you get it.”

So what did you think of the snippet?
