The second installment of The Bane Chronicles: The Runaway Queen is set to be released on May 21, and now fans can get a sneak peak on the official Shadowhunters app.
The Runaway Queen is written by Miss Cassandra Clare and Madame Maureen Johnson while George Blagden will narrate the audiobook.
You can read the snippet here:
There was a smell to Paris in the simmer mornings that Magnus enjoyed. This was surprising, because on summer mornings Paris smelled of cheese that sat int he sun all day and fish and the less desirable parts of fish. It smelled of people and all the things that people produce (this does not refer to art or culture, but to the baser things that were dumped out of windows in buckets). But these were punctuated by other odors, and the odors would shift rapidly from street to street, or building to building. That heady whiff of a bakery might be followed by an unexpected flush of gardenias in a garden, which gave way to the iron-rich pong of a slaughterhouse. Paris was nothing if not alive–the Seine pumping along like a great artery, the vessels of the wider street, narrowing down the tiniest alleys…and every inch of it had a smell.
