Will and Jem talk reincarnation in new ‘Clockwork Princess’ snippet

While fans were disappointed when they learned they wouldn’t yet find out who will portray Alec Lightwood in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Cassandra Clare has a consolation prize for fans:

A new snippet from Clockwork Princess, the conclusion to the bestselling The Infernal Devices series, that will be released Mach 19, 2013.

Check out the snippet:

Will rose slowly to his feet. He could not believe he was doing what he was doing, but it was clear that he was, clear as the silver rim around the black of Jem’s eyes. “If there is a life after this one,” he said, “let me meet you in it, James Carstairs.”

“There will be other lives.” Jem held his hand out, and for a moment, they clasped hands, as they had done during their parabatai ritual, reaching across twin rings of fire to interlace their fingers with each other. “The world is a wheel,” he said. “When we rise or fall, we do it together.”

Will tightened his grip on Jem’s hand, which felt thin as twigs in his. “Well, then,” he said, through a tight throat, “since you say there will be another life for me, let us both pray I do not make as colossal a mess of it as I have this one.”

    is jem dying? (yes i know in a sense he is sorta of already dying, but i mean he dies?). if so, this is really heartwrenching but maybe at least Tessa will still have Will and she still loves him and her her and he will take care of her and keep her happy

  3. OMG!! I love Will & Jem moments. I can’t wait for Clockwork Princess!!

    I don’t want either of them to die >_<

  5. Oh no, what if will is being noble, like sydney from a tale of two cities? Just so that jem can be with tessa 😦

    • No, Julie, that’s not how you say it! What you say is, What if Will is being noble, like Sydney from a tale of two cities? So that Jem, his Parabatai and a truly, truly good person, can be with Tessa, whom he loves with all his heart 🙂

  6. im constantly thinks whats gonna happen between tessa,will and jem is will gonna die? is tessa gonna get pregnant with wills baby before he dies then she’ll move on with will?? AGH …its getting me desperate to get my hands on clockwork princess i swear if it doesnt get released early im gonna have to stop myself into hassaling cassandra clare for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Everytime I read scenes involving Will and Jem, I’d feel like crying. 😦

    • Same here! If reading the snippets is this bad, what’s the real thing going to be like? When I order it, I’ll have to order a box of tissues at the same time. Or maybe two boxes. Or twelve.

  8. oh god. If I dont read it them it doesnt have to happen right???….I mean I can just tell myself that Tessa magically split into two and both will and Jem get a tessa and live happily ever after. yep thats what Im gonna do.
