Cassandra Clare teased us with yet another City of Heavently Fire Snippet in her Tumblr account. The final installment of the international bestselling The Mortal Instruments, out in March of 2014.
The snippet features Clary and Sebastian/Jonathan:
His eyes shone when he looked at her, green as spring grass.
He has always had green eyes, said the voice in her head.People often marvel at how much alike you are, he and your mother and yourself. His name is Jonathan and he is your brother; he has always protected you.
Somewhere in the back of Clary’s mind she saw black eyes and whip marks, but she didn’t know why. He’s your brother. He’s your brother, and he’s always taken care of you.
Shadowhunters, what you think? What are you theories?
Cassandra Clare took over her official site, to share the very first snippet for her upcoming book ‘The Dark Artifices: Lady Midnight’.
“The cycle hit the beach and spun out. Emma went into a rolling crouch as she flew free of it, keeping her elbows in, pushing the air hard out of her lungs. She turned her head as she hit the sand, slapping her palms down to roll herself forward, absorbing the impact of the fall through her arms and shoulders, her knees folding up into her chest. The stars wheeled crazily overhead as she spun, sucking in her breath as her body slowed its rolling. She came to a stop on her back, her hair and clothes full of sand and her ears full of the sound of the wildly crashing ocean….”
This is what we know about ‘The Dark Artifices: Lady Midnight’:
“Los Angeles, 2012. It’s been five years since the events of the Mortal Instrumentswhen Nephilim stood poised on the brink of oblivion and Shadowhunter Emma Carstairs lost her parents. After the blood and violence she witnessed as a child, Emma has dedicated her life to the eradication of demons and being the best, fastest and deadliest teen Shadowhunter since Jace Lightwood. Raised in the Los Angeles Institute, Emma is paired as a parabatai with her best friend, Julian. As Emma hunts those who caused the death of her parents, the trail they’re following leads back to those they’ve always been taught to trust. At the same time, Emma is falling in love with the one person in the world she’s absolutely forbidden by Shadowhunter Law to love. Set against the glittering backdrop of present-day Los Angeles, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches from the warlock-run nightclubs of the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica.
The first book of the Dark Artifices, Lady Midnight will be published in 2015. There will be three books in total: Lady Midnight, The Prince of Shadows, and The Queen of Air and Darkness.”
Can’t wait to get my heart riped in a million pieces in 2015!!!
