Check out the Magnus and Alec scene from ‘City of Lost Souls’

Cassandra Clare continues to shower us with teasers from her forthcoming novels. Yesterday we got a love scene from Clockwork Prince and today we got a scene from City of Lost Souls which features Magnus and Alec. Here's what Clare had to say:

As I said yesterday — thanks to all of you who voted for Jace in the YA Tourney so MUCH. He won, and it's all down to you.

So here's the bonus part of the reward teasers: A scene from CoLS about Magnus and Alec. I get asked constantly if they will be in it and I hope this is somewhat reassuring that yes, indeed, they will be, with their very own plotline and all that. It's a short scene because it's smack in the middle of a giant spoiler. In fact I had to take out everything that even indicated where they were. Somewhere dark...but light can come from the strangest of sources.

Enjoy the Malec scene from City of Lost Souls: SPOILER WARNING!

Alec dropped his witchlight. The light winked out, and he fell to his knees, scrabbling on the ground among the trash and the dirt, grit under his fingernails. At last something lit up before his eyes, and he rose to see Magnus standing before him, the witchlight in his hand. It shone and flickered with a strangely-colored light.

“It shouldn’t illuminate like that,” Alec said, automatically. “For anyone but a Shadowhunter.”

Magnus held it out. The heart of the witchlight was glowing a dark red, like the coal of a fire.

“Is it because of your father?” Alec asked.

Magnus didn’t reply, only tipped the runestone into Alec’s palm. As their hands touched, his face changed. “You’re freezing cold.”

“I am?”

“Alexander . . .” Magnus pulled him to his feet, and the witchlight flickered between them, its color changing rapidly. Alec had never seen a witchlight runestone do that before. He put his head against Magnus’ shoulder and let Magnus hold him. Magnus’ heart didn’t beat like human hearts did: it was slower, but steady. Sometimes Alec thought it was the steadiest thing in his life.

“Kiss me,” Alec said, tipping his head up; Magnus eyes were sad and shadowed, and unreadable.

Magnus put his hand to the side of Alec’s face and gently, almost absently, ran his thumb along Alec’s cheekbone. When he bent to kiss him he smelled like sandalwood. Alec clutched the sleeve of Magnus’ jacket, and the witchlight, held between their bodies, flared up in colors of rose and blue and green as their lips touched.

Just how cute are these two? Can’t wait to read more.

Gosh, May 2012 is such a long wait…excruciating really.

  4. I love them so much… If they don’t get a happy ending together I might hurt someone…

  5. awww get some alec awwwwwwww this to dam cute

  6. Aww this is so beautiful. Cassie Clare really shows everyone how beautiful true love relationships can be, no matter the sexuality of the people. Their love is so pure and one of the things I love most about TMI. I really can’t wait to see them in the movie-I have to stop myself skipping ahead to read malec in the books now, rather than reading the whole thing. I just hope they get the casting right and I’m so glad they did the script again because you cannot have TMI without Magnus.
