With the release of the cover for City of Heavenly Fire, comes the crazy emotional crackpot theories from the fans. To summarize everyone’s thoughts….
The fans went wild on January 14th with the release of the last cover of The Mortal Instruments series. Theories were thrown around the twitterverse, fangirling ensued, and the fansites were there to witness it all. I asked the Shadowhunters to throw their theories for the finale at me. I have my own theories, but I’ll save them till the end. Read all the speculation below:
See above. Pain. (Crazy theories)
@PageToPremiere pain! Lots of pain!

@PageToPremiere well my theory is that all my otp will be dead and six feet under.

@PageToPremiere I say Izzy dies for Simon, Jace ends up killing Simon in some weird Romeo/Mercutio esc thing, and Magnus dies saving Alec

@PageToPremiere Cassie said that Alec, Simon, Maia, Izzy and Jace were in the inside of the cover. I think they and Sebastian die. (6 Chars)

This could actually happen. See below.
@PageToPremiere I think Luke is going to die and will leave Jocelyn pregnant. Izzy will join the Iron Sisters. Alec will die.

@PageToPremiere I think there will be an epic battle to finish off the series. especially one between Sebastian and Jace

@PageToPremiere Sebastian will make Clary drink from the black cup and tell her to kill Jace, but in the end she will send Sebastian to hell

@pagetopremiere I feel like one of the 6 characters that's gonna die is Alec.. but then Magnus is gonna save him

@PageToPremiere my theory is that 4 of the 6 to die will be the adults our last 4 original Valentine supporters

Wasn’t that enlightening?
The fans have some good theories, and this post will be fun to look back on when we’ve devoured the novel. I thought the most interesting theory was Isabelle joining the Iron Sisters. Though I still think Alec will die, and I do really think Magnus might also be killed off only do to the fact that Cassie wrote his chronicles this past year. I honestly don’t think Clary or Jace will die, most of the main characters will survive, but I want to see how Jem’s (Brother Zachariah) role plays into the book. If you want some more fun thought out theories watch our writer’s, Christine, video only if you read both The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices series!
