In honor of Jem’s YA Crush Tourney victory over Magnus last week, Cassandra Clare has shared another snippet from Clockwork Princess, due out March 19, 2013.
The scene features Jem and Tessa discussing heroes–and Will.
“Though Will was saying earlier,” Tessa added, “that heroes all come to bad ends, and he could not imagine why anyone would want to be one, anyway.”
“Ah.” Jem’s hand squeezed hers briefly, and then let it go. “Well, Will is looking at it from the hero’s viewpoint, isn’t he? But as for the rest of us, it’s an easy answer.”
“Of course.” His voice was almost a whisper now. “Heroes endure because we need them. Not for their own sakes. If Will …”
Jem will face-off against a familiar face in Will in the Final Four of the YA Crush Tourney on Wednesday, August 8.
