Here are snippets from LADY MIDNIGHT, the first installment in THE DARK ARTIFICES trilogy scheduled to be released in 2015, that Cassandra Clare has shared online:

Snippet #1

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….

    I bet this is why Emma hates the Ocean. Maybe this is like a recurring nightmare for her

  2. Wow. What a spinet. Promising. Perfect. I’d rather to have a CoHF one.

  3. Kinda reminds me of the motorcycle scene in City of Bones with the crashing and being near the ocean

  4. That was a short one…I want more! And I also want to read a CoFH sneek peak chapter!

  5. I was quite upset when i realized that the Infernal Devices series is finished and that The Mortal Instruments is almost finished. It’s okay now though, because THERE IS GOING TO BE A NEW SERIES!!!!!!!

  6. sucks that its only 3 books!!!

  8. Bex Fairchild says:

    Ugh I am dying waiting for this and CoHF

  9. I kinda want the TMI series and TDA to be an anime series….

  10. How it it that Cassandra Clare can make you fall in love with every character and the stories they’re in. She’s such an AMAZING WRITER!!! Even tho i’m sad TID is done, and TMI is almost done, NOT TO WORRY! We then have TDA, then TLH, then TWP and Magsterium series.

  13. I cant wait for this and CoHF

  14. I think the dark artifices will be very interesting because I think that simon becomes a shadowhunter and I think magnus finds a way to bring back his memories. I also think that Clary and Jayce will be in the series. I am excited to know how their lives are five years after the mortal war. I am also excited to find out what happens to the romance emma and Julian build within each (being parabatai and all). I am super excited for the dark artifices. Hopefully there will be more than her discovering her parents’ deaths and I hope Julian and Emma have a romantic relationship even though I clearly know they cant. Well, I hope I can be patient until the release!

    • yes i cannot wait for the release!!!! i want to know if simon and izzy stay together, and i NEED to know if alec and magnus figure out the mortal/immortal thing. And who gets married!!!!

  15. leoherondale says:

    I heard a rumor…is it true that emma n julian fall in love?? Despite being parabatai??

    • yeah that was hinted towards the end of cohf, also for the fact that the blurb for lady midnight goes into details about it….

  16. Hey guys you should follow this awesome facebook page all about The Mortal Instruments and The infernal devices for all the newest updates and best quote, games, and more!
