Cassandra Clare shares the ‘Clockwork Prince’ Prologue

Cassandra Clare shared the 'Clockwork Prince' Prologue as July's teaser.

Cassandra Clare promised us a  Clockwork Prince teaser this month. And boy, was it worth the wait.

Clare shared the Prologue–in its entirety–as the Clockwork Prince teaser for July.

The Prologue (titled The Outcast Dead) follows Will Herondale’s visit to Cross Bones Graveyard to collect an ingredient for whatever Magnus Bane is helping him with (my curiosity is killing me here).

Will encounters a ghost–Old Molly–about the request but also asks her about love potions–or rather “something that might put an end to being in love.”

“I ‘ardly like to tell you this, Nephilim, but if you want a girl to ‘ate you, there’s easy enough ways to making it ‘appen. You don’t need my help with the poor thing.”

And with that, she vanished, spinning away into the mists among the graves. Will, looking after her, sighed. “Not for her,” he said under his breath, though there was no one to hear him, “for me…” and he leaned his head against the cold iron gate.


Several questions:

-Why did Will seek out Magnus for help and for what?

-What are Magnus and Will doing?

-Did Will just confess that he is in LOVE with Tessa?

-Is there a way to get a hold of that manuscript NOW?

What are your thoughts about the Prologue?

  1. i can only read the first paragraph on the id webpage. any tips on how to get the whole thing?

  2. I Love TMI // July 13, 2011 at 5:56 PM // Reply

    AHH!! So adorable… well, I don’t know if adorable’s the right word… but I absolutely LOVE it. CAN’T WAIT!! 🙂

  3. After I read the prologue, it made me even more anxious and impatient for the next book to come out. Will is so mysterious, it sort of draws you in slowly and drives me crazy with curiousity. In a lot of ways, the characters in ID have a bit in common with their descendants from TMI. Honestly, I like TMI better than ID, but this series is okay too, I guess.
