Cassandra Clare updates fans on ‘The Last Hours’ and shares a new snippet

TLH spring new

While the publication of Cassandra Clare’s Lady Midnight is getting closer and closer, 110 days left, Cassie’s other new trilogy The Last Hours does not have a release date yet, but she addressed this issue in a recent tumblr post:

The first book of TLH isn’t scheduled. It is most likely, unless something weird happens, to come out after the second book of TDA. It is likely to go like this:

2016 TDA 1
2017 TDA 2
? TLH 1
? TDA 3

Etc. But none of this is set in stone, and I feel very squirrelly about even suggesting dates and order, because they are not final. In the past, when I’ve said a date was tentative and it was then moved, as tentative dates are, people have asked in droves why the book was pushed back.

I totally get that: when you’re looking forward to something, it’s nice to have a specific date you can know when you’ll get it. And I’m grateful people are looking forward to these! Part of the reason, though, that I asked — so this is on me — my publisher not to set release dates yet was to give myself a little creative freedom. To figure out the right order of publication for the story I want to tell, and not to be constantly panicked about deadlines. (Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean I am not writing. I am a workaholic. I write 20/24.) To be able to preserve my health a bit and provide a cushion in case unexpected stuff happens (like traveling to New York to meet a contest winner!)

I don’t know what’s up with Goodreads, but like IMDB, before a book comes out, I am not sure I would entirely trust the information provided. For instance the official site of my publisher, http://shadowhunters.com/ , says TLH 1 is coming in 2017. And it might. But I can tell you it sure isn’t coming in 2016!

I know it sucks to wait. It sucks for me, too. Every time I write a scene I like with Mark, or a funny line for Anna, I want you guys to see it. But ultimately I want you to see the polished form, the best I can make it. And that does take some time.

Looks like we have to be patient and see what Cassie’s publisher will decide!

To make us even more excited for The Last Hours, Cassie shared a short snippet about Lucie Herondale:

He really did have a most arresting face, Lucie thought. She firmly believed it was all right to stare at people when you were a writer. Writers needed to gather material. That was all there was to it.

Who do you think Lucie is watching and what series are you looking forward to more? Sound off in the comments below!

Happy release day to ‘Angels Twice Descending’

Angels Twice Descending

Nine months ago we embarked on a journey to Idris to join Simon at Shadowhunter Academy. Over these past nine months we read about Simon’s adventures with his old and also new friends. We saw him grow, learn about Shadowhunters from the past and fight against prejudice. Today we will hopefully see him become what he has always wanted to be: a Shadowhunter, together with his best friend Clary.

It is bittersweet to write this: Happy release day to Angels Twice Descending by Cassandra Clare and Robin Wasserman, the last installment of the Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy series!

I devoured Angels Twice Descending at midnight and if you love Simon (and Sizzy), you need to read this ebook ASAP! A word of caution, though, have some tissues ready.

Happy reading, Shadowhunters and leave us your thoughts in the comments below!

To celebrate the release, Cassie shared the completed Simon cover on her tumblr:

In honor of the last story of Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy coming out tomorrow: Angels Twice Descending by me and Robin Wasserman, here is the full wraparound art of Simon on the cover of the book.Simon’s looking pretty cute, and if you look closely at the archway around him, the crests of various families — the Carstairs, the Lightwoods, the Blackthorns — are etched into the stone. (This version I have is slightly cut off: I don’t think you can see all the family crests, and there’s also a Jewish star and the word Cassie in the final version!)This model is the same model who was Simon on the new cover of City of Glass. Thanks to all my cowriters, Maureen and Sarah and Robin, for making this just as fun an experience as The Bane Chronicles. And lots of love for the readers who have followed along with.

Simon has to say goodbye in new ‘Angels Twice Descending’ snippet

Angels Twice Descending

Yesterday Cassandra Clare treated her fans to a snippet from her and Robin Wasserman’s final Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy short story, Angels Twice Descending. This ebook focuses on the last step of Simon’s education at Shadowhunter Academy: his Ascension. Unfortunately, there are some downsides to being a mundane-turned-Shadowhunter and this is addressed in the new snippet:

Simon stood on the sidewalk, staring up at his mother’s brownstone, his stomach churning. Traveling by way of Portal always made him feel a bit like puking up his lower intestine, but this time, he didn’t think he could blame the inter-dimensional magic. Not entirely, at least.
“You sure this is a good idea?” he said. “It’s late.”
“It’s eleven pm, Simon,” Clary said. “You know she’s still awake. And even if she’s not, you know—”
“I know.” His mother would want to see him. So would his sister who, according to Clary, was home for the weekend because someone, presumably a well-meaning, red-headed someone with his sister’s cell number, had told her Simon was stopping in for a visit.
He sagged against Clary for a moment and, small as she was, she bore his weight. “I don’t know how to do it,” he said. “I don’t know how to say goodbye to them.”
Simon’s mother thought he was away at military school. He’d felt guilty lying to her, but he’d known there wasn’t any other choice; he knew, all too well, what happened when he risked telling his mother too much truth. But this, this was something else: He was forbidden by Shadowhunter Law to tell her about his Ascension, about his new life. The Law also forbade him from contacting her after he became a Shadowhunter, and though there was nothing saying he couldn’t be here in Brooklyn to say goodbye to her forever, the Law forbade him from explaining why.
Sed Lex, dura Lex.
The Law is hard, but it is the Law.
Lex sucks, Simon thought.
“You want me to go in with you?” Clary asked.
He did, more than anything—but something told him this was one of those things he needed to do on his own …

Aw, Simon 💔 I think we all agree that the Clave’s laws really do suck, right?

Angels Twice Descending is going to be published online in two weeks and you’ll be able to purchase the complete Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy book next year!

Are you excited for the final short story? Leave a comment with the Shadowhunter name that you think Simon will pick!

Cassandra Clare talks special content in ‘Lady Midnight’ first editions

Lady Midnight hardcover

Source: simonteen’s Instagram

We are all eagerly anticipating the release of Cassandra Clare’s new book – Lady Midnight – and today Cassie took to her tumblr to answer a few questions about special content in first editions. You may remember that the first editions of Clockwork Princess and City of Heavenly Fire also had special content – the family tree and two different comics.

Here is what Cassie said:

Every first page will be hand-stamped with a rune. (I wish I could sign them all, but it is beyond my ability to sign that many books.)

Even more specially, each first edition will contain a full short story, about the size of a Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy story. […]

There is mention in Lady Midnight, when one of the TMI characters drops by, that the characters have come from a party. I decided to write the short story of that party, so we could check in more thoroughly, emotionally with the TMI characters,to see what’s going on with them and how it ties into the events of TDA. It’s a chance to check in on couples, life, politics, and just see how things are going for everyone: we’ll obviously see Jace, Clary, Magnus, Alec, Bat and Maia, Simon and Isabelle, baby Max, Jocelyn and Luke and Lily and some of the characters from Tales from Shadowhunter Academy — and, it’s not just any party; the night contains a marriage proposal for one of our couples. The story will exist only in the first edition of Lady Midnight; All hardback first editions in English of Lady Midnight will have, printed at the end, this short story.

Cassie also clarified what counts as a first edition and how you can get one:

Publishers print books in batches called print runs. Every book printed in the first batch of books printed is a first edition. “A first edition book is a copy that was printed in the first print run, when the book was originally published. If the books sell out, the publisher will authorize the printing of a new batch, called the second edition. When that stock is depleted, the next print run is called the third edition, and so on.“

[…]

The best way to make sure you get a first edition is to pre order. You can do this online.

If you do not want to order online, you can go into any bookstore now and tell them that you wish to pre-order a first edition. They will call you when it comes in. Bookstores can do that. They put in their own order with the publisher, and the publisher makes sure they get those first editions. You can even do this at Walmart. You can do this in any country, in any bookstore where English language books are sold.

The special content sounds amazing! We hope that Jace proposes to Clary :)

Here is a list where fans around the world can preorder Lady Midnight, which will be published on March 8, 2016:

Amazon US / Barnes and Noble / Book Depository / Amazon UK Amazon GermanyAmazon Canada / Amazon France / Amazon Spain / Amazon Italy / Amazon Brasil / Amazon India / Amazon Japan

 

Read a sneak peek chapter sampler from ‘Lady Midnight’

Lady Midnight headerCassandra Clare’s first book in her new The Dark Artifices trilogy, Lady Midnight, will not be released for another 137 days, but Simon & Schuster Australia kindly made one chapter available for all the Shadowhunters that haven’t managed to read the chapter sampler that was given to fans at several events over the last couple of months.

Read Highborn Kinsmen here.

By the Angel, what an ending! We need Lady Midnight like now!

Here is one official synopsis from Cassie’s website:

In a secret world where half-angel warriors are sworn to fight demons, parabatai is a sacred word.

A parabatai is your partner in battle. A parabatai is your best friend. Parabatai can be everything to each other — but they can never fall in love.

Emma Carstairs is a Shadowhunter, one in a long line of Shadowhunters tasked with protecting the world from demons. With her parabatai Julian Blackthorn, she patrols the streets of an secret Los Angeles where vampires party on the Sunset Strip, and faeries teeter on the edge of open war with Shadowhunters. When the bodies of humans and faeries start turning up murdered in the same way Emma’s parents were murdered years ago, an uneasy alliance is formed. This is Emma’s chance for revenge — and Julian’s chance to get back his half-faerie brother, Mark, who was kidnapped five years ago. All Emma, Mark and Julian have to do  is solve the murders within two weeks . . . before the murderer targets them.

Their search takes Emma from sea caves full of sorcery to a dark lottery where death is dispensed. As she uncovers the past, she begins to peel away the secrets of the present: What has Julian been hiding from her all these years? Why does Shadowhunter law forbid parabatai to fall in love? Who really killed her parents — and can she bear to know the truth?

The magic and adventure of the Shadowhunter Chronicles have captured the imaginations of millions of readers across the globe. Fall in love with Emma and her friends in this pulse-pounding, heart-rending new volume sure to delight new readers and longtime fans.

We can’t wait to listen to the audiobook!

Julian acts strong for Tiberius in new ‘Lady Midnight’ snippet

Lady Midnight header

To celebrate the newly released cover of Cassandra Clare’s upcoming novel Lady Midnight, which is the first book in her The Dark Artifices trilogy, Cassie shared a snippet that features Tiberius and Julian Blackthorn:

I hope you guys have seen the cover and you love it like I do. If not, just scroll down my tumblr.

As requested, a snippet from LM to go with the cover reveal. Brotherly love is not such a simple thing..

Ty lifted his face. He’d always had delicate features, more elfin than Helen or Mark’s. His father had said he was a throwback to earlier generations of Blackthorns, and he looked not unlike some of the family portraits in the dining room they rarely used, slender Victorian men in tailored clothes with porcelain faces and black, curling hair and names like Jesse and Rupert. “Then what is it?”

Julian hesitated. The whole house was still. He could hear the faint crackle of the computer on the other side of the door.

He had thought about asking Ty to look into the poison. But that would require him to say,  I should be dead. The words wouldn’t come. They were like a dam, and behind them were so many other words: I’m not sure about anything. I hate being in charge. I hate making the decisions. I’m terrified you’ll all learn to hate me. I’m terrified of losing you. I’m terrified of losing Mark. I’m terrified of losing Emma. I want someone to take over. I’m not as strong as you think. The things I want are wrong and broken things to want.

He knew he could say none of this. The façade he showed them, his children, had to be perfect: a crack in him would be like a crack in the world to them.

“You know I love you,” he said, instead, and Ty looked up at him, startled, meeting his gaze for a flicker of a moment.

Oh, Jules! We want to hug him and make his pain go away.

Lady Midnight will be published in 150 days (March 8, 2016)!

Watch: First Official Trailer for ‘Shadowhunters’

Shadowhunters premieres in January on ABC Family.

Cover Reveal: ‘Lady Midnight’ coming March 8, 2016

Cassandra Clare first told fans about The Dark Artifices way back in 2011 – read our first article about it here – and she has always been very forthcoming with information regarding the Blackthorn family and Emma Carstairs. Fans finally met some of the characters in City of Heavenly Fire and we learned more about them in some installments of Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy.

After what felt like years of waiting (at least for some of us), we are now one step closer to the release of Lady Midnight! Today Cassie and special guest Harry Shum Jr. (Magnus Bane in Shadowhunters) revealed the cover for Lady Midnight at New York Comic Con!

Have a look at the stunning cover:


The cover shows Emma Carstairs with her famous sword Cortana. It was done by Cliff Nielsen who also designed the covers for The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices. Cassie already said that she loved the cover and so do we! The colours are gorgeous and the water theme is great since Emma is known to be afraid of the ocean.

A warlock baby is found in new ‘Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy’ snippet

Malec Baby by

Art by MagnusRayne on deviantart

We only have two installments of Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy left before the series is over and yesterday Cassandra Clare took to her tumblr to share another snippet from Born to Endless Night (aka the story with the Malec baby):

The fist was blue, the rich navy of the sea when it was deep and you were on a boat as evening fell. The blue of Captain America’s suit.

“It’s a baby,” Beatriz breathed. “It’s a warlock baby.”

Here’s a synopsis for the 9th installment:

Simon, like the rest of the Academy, is stunned when a navy-skinned warlock baby is found on the Academy steps. They hand the child over to guest lecturer Magnus Bane, who has to bring a child home… temporarily, of course… to his man!

Click here for the other snippets and have a look at this short one

Born to Endless Night was co-written by Cassie and Sarah Rees Brennan and will be released on October 20.

I can’t wait to meet the baby! :-)

James Herondale accidentally uses his power in new ‘The Last Hours’ snippet

image

Art by Cassandra Jean

We’ve already come across James Herondale’s unusual power and his strong friendship with Matthew Fairchild in The Bane Chronicles and Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy respectively and now we can add The Last Hours to the list. Cassandra Clare took to her tumblr to share the following snippet:

James cried out. Lightning seemed to fork behind his vision, and suddenly he was back in Regent’s Park, kneeling on the grass. There was a firm grip on his shoulders. “Jamie, Jamie, Jamie,” said an urgent voice, and James — his breath tearing in and out of his chest — tried to focus on what was in front of him.

Matthew.

Everything was blurred in that moment but Matthew’s face, his green eyes wide and dark and steady. Behind him moved other figures; they seemed in that moment like the shapes James had been finding in the clouds — inchoate and untouchable.

“Jamie, breathe,” Matthew said, and his voice was the only steady thing in a world turning upside down. It had been years since this had happened. Years. The horror of it happening in front of a crowd of people —

“Did they see me?” he said in a cracked voice. “Did they see me turn?”

“You didn’t,” Matthew said, “or at least, only a very little bit — perhaps just a bit fuzzy round the edges —“

“It’s not funny,” James said through his teeth, but Matthew’s humor acted like a slap of cold water; he opened his eyes fully, saw Thomas and Christopher looking down at him. They had positioned themselves so as to block him from the crowd at the lake’s edge.

“Get up,” Thomas said. “It’s the best thing you can do, James, we’ll tell them you tripped or fell.” His hazel eyes were anxious but his tone was reassuring. “Honestly all the attention was on Ariadne — “

Matthew’s hands on James’ shoulders turned into a grip on his arms, and James was hauled upright by his three best friends. Christopher produced a handkerchief from somewhere and began to dust his lapels.

Chris,” said Matthew. He was the only person who ever used that nickname for Christopher besides Anna. “Stop. Who cares if he’s dusty? He was just invisible.”

“But he isn’t any more,” Christopher pointed out.

“We need to get you back to the Institute,” said Matthew to James in a low voice. “If you’re going to start suddenly going all — shadowy — for no reason, then the Silent Brothers —“

“Not the Silent Brothers,” said Thomas. “Just Zachariah.”

Ariadne. who used to be Daphne in a previous snippet, is engaged to Charles Fairchild.

The Last Hours does not have a release date yet, but you can catch up with all the released snippets here.
