TBCIt’s been awhile since we’ve gotten an installment of The Bane Chronicles. With the final installment The Course of True Love (And First Dates) set for a March 18 release, Cassandra Clare shared a sneak peek of Alec and Magnus’ date chapter:

The kiss caught fire and all he could see behind his closed eyes were gold sparks, all he was aware of was Alec’s mouth, Alec’s strong gentle hands that had held down a werewolf and tried not to hurt her, Alec pressing him against the banister so the rotten wood creaked alarmingly and Magnus did not even care. Alec here, Alec now, the taste of Alec in his mouth, his hands pushing aside the fabric of his own worn t-shirt to get at Alec’s bare skin underneath. 

The Bane Chronicles is set to be released in full print on November 11.

Jamie Bamber to narrate ‘The Last Stand of the New York Institute’ audiobook

Jamie BamberJamie Bamber, known for Battlestar Galactica, will narrate the audiobook of the second to last installment of The Bane ChroniclesThe Last Stand of the New York Institute, which was released earlier this month.

Cassandra Clare shared the news:

As the Bane Chronicles draws to a close, I know you’re all worried. Can we really keep up our excellent track record of Hot Guys Reading You Stories? I’m happy to announce that we can.

The actor who will be reading The Last Stand of the New York Institute, the second-last Bane Chronicle, is… Jamie Bamber. You may know him from Battlestar Galactica. (Captain Apollo!) Sarah, who has a creepily encyclopaedic knowledge of Hot British Actors, loves him from the Hornblower TV series in which apparently Jamie Bamber wore a very poofy white shirt, had a lot of feelings and served in His Majesty’s navy. I don’t ask questions.

We are so excited to have Jamie Bamber onboard, and can’t wait to hear his interpretations of Magnus, Luke, Valentine, Jocelyn…and Stephen Herondale.

We cannot wait to hear Jamie voice the latest Bane Chronicles installment!

Happy Release Day to ‘The Last Stand of the New York Institute’
