"Roza," His voice had that same wonderful lowness, the same accent... it was all just colder. "You forgot your first lesson: Don't hesitate."

This was one of the best lines from Blood Promise by Richelle Mead. It made me sob for a little before I was able to turn the page to the next chapter. It was just so... sad! It was Dimitri, yet... it wasn't. Amazing series and this books is one of my favorites.

Jamie Campbell Bower as Jace Wayland in big screen

Yes, we finally have an actor who will play Jace Wayland on the big screen. Awesome. Apparantly Jamie Campbell Bower will be that lucky person. It was confirmed yesterday by Cassandra Clare herself.

It was who MTV's Hollywood Crush posted the news first, though I had no idea until I saw CC's post on Twitter and everyone was fussing about whether or not it was true. Fans wanted confirmation and all that.
In my opinion, it should have been someone else. But, yes, there's a but, it's just awesome the fact that we now have a Jace. JCB kind of looks like Jace. He has the golden boy looks and all, but he looks more like Simon to me. IDK, why. He's not buff enough to be Jace. Still, he's a great actor and hope that he portrays Jace just as beautifully as he did with that vampire from New Moon. The good thing is that Cassandra Clare is happy about it. Although, I heard that Alex Pettyfer was also offered the role of Jace. (sigh)

I guess that now they will finally start casting the rest of the gang: Simon, Isabelle, Alec, Magnus... (I'm specially waiting for Magnus because I'm a huge fan. :p). Can't wait for the film and all that.
BTW, Lily Collins was cast as Clary. I had no idea about this! Until recently.

Sea Lion Books Unites Warner, Eisner-Nominated Illustrator Brett Weldele and Writer Philip Gellat to Bring A Unique Group of Beyond-Intelligent Teen Fugitives to the Comic Book World This July.

Atlanta, GA – June 01, 2011 – They’re not super powered, they’re just super smart. The teen protagonists who lead us through the world of Pariah, a twelve-book graphic novel series from the mind of Oscar-winning film producer Aron Warner and published by Sea Lion Books, are the next generation of heroes in the comic book world. Eisner-nominated illustrator Brett Weldele (The Surrogates) will bring the stories to life in ink, and Philip Gelatt will pen the scripts set in Warner’s world for the twelve books. As buzz builds about this unlikely collaboration and the unique story of Pariah, the series will premiere at San Diego Comic Con on July 20 – 24th.

"I came up with Pariah after reading an article about in vitro genetic manipulation,” Warner says. “We take medications every day without fully understanding how they work. It’s kind of terrifying if you think about it. In Pariah, kids grow up with incredible intelligence as a side effect of modern ‘cures.’ The problem is that they’re so smart, they question everything – even things we hold as sacred. All of our laws, morals, and even physical constraints will be torn apart and re-built. These kids are adrift in every way, equipped with mental tools we can’t even imagine. On top of all of that, they’re persecuted, feared and hated. As if being a teenager didn’t suck enough…”

    The Vitros, as the characters are called, are a group of several hundred kids from all over the world who possess beyond-human intelligence produced via genetic manipulation. As teenagers in the process of trying to uncover their identities, they live relatively normal lives, though not without a fair amount of suspicion thrown at them from the fringes of society. When the Vitrosare framed for a deadly explosion at a laboratory that releases a virus on the population, the government systematically begins to round up these pariahs, sending our heroes on the run from the authorities and their lives.

    Says Sea Lion's Publisher, Derek Ruiz, "Aron has captured the essence of being a Pariah as seen through the eyes of a group of scientifically created teens. They are a Petri dish of innocent souls infinitely more intelligent than anyone else on Earth. Yet their creation and existence has left them shunned and condemned.”

    What happens when the society that created them also tries to destroy them? The Pariahs fight back this July. For updates and additional information join Pariah on Facebook or follow PariahComicBook on Twitter.
