This is another popular series where I expected to see a lot more fanart done. Maybe once there’s a movie and tv show nothing is left to the imagination anymore? Who knows. How do you guys feel about the tv show so far? Are you liking it or hating it? I’m kind of on the edge because some parts aren’t too bad and then a cheesy line or bad acting is thrown in there and it ruins it for me. Don’t you hate that? When a tv show has so much potential but it doesn’t get pulled off the right way? What are your favourite book to tv/movie adaptions? What about your least favourites?

Also there’s a potential spoiler ahead I think. So WARNING!

This is probably the most perfect representation of Jace I’ve seen yet. If you don’t know, Jace is from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. This piece was drawn by Carly Cheung on DeviantArt and she’s got lots of other pieces drawn up for this series so go check her out. I know my favourite part is easily the wings! I love how she incorporated them into this piece! They look like they’re just floating there and Jace has no idea. It’s perfect! Side note: I always pictured Jace’s hair to look like this, not that really long style they seem to use in the movie and tv show.

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder― much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It’s hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing―not even a smear of blood―to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary’s first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It’s also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace’s world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know…

Exotic and gritty, exhilarating and utterly gripping, Cassandra Clare’s ferociously entertaining fantasy takes readers on a wild ride that they will never want to end.

“The boy never cried again, and he never forgot what he’d learned: that to love is to destroy, and that to be loved is to be the one destroyed.”

  1. Wo, that fan art of Jace blew me away, it is ALL I ever imagined while I was reading the books.

    Jamie Campbell Bower, from the movie, was hot and he was my Jace for a while but I think he never completely portrayed him the way I was picturing him in my mind.

    Dom Sherwood, from the tv show, has ruined my Jace somehow. I watched some of the Shadowhunters episodes and, as you say, it’s not all that bad. There are great actors, but unfortunately Clary and Jace and all WRONG. If they were only cheesy… but it’s even how their relationship is represented that is just… No.

    But that drawing of Jace? yeah, that’s more like my Jace <3

    BTW, Cassandra Jean has some great fan art on Cassie Clare's work: check it out 😀

    • Yes this is exactly how I pictured Jace and I agree with you about the tv show actors. I find that they just can’t act and that makes their chemistry not work out how I imagined at all
