The most anticpated cover reveal of the year has come. City of Lost Souls, the fifth book in Cassandra’s Clares Mortal Instruments series. I still haven’t read City of Fallen Angels so no spoilers !
The cover is designed by Cliff Nielsen who we featured forShelf Candy Saturday. . . We couldn’t help but notice that this covers borrows from some of his previous work.

This is the first cover in the Mortal Instrument series to feature two complete faces. Is it just me or does the male illustration (yes, those are illustrations) look like Jamie Campbell Bower who is set to play Jace Wayland in the film and Alex Pettyfer who was rumored to be playing him
look at the nose and eyes.
I’m also a little shocked that after five books Isabelle has not been featured on a cover. What are your reactions to the cover ?
