Bane Chronicles Ususally Cassandra Clare shares new The Bane Chronicles snippets but this time her friend and co-author Sarah Rees Brennan posted a snippet on her tumblr. Here is what Sarah had to say:

Huzzah! Cassie and I just finished a… certain instalment… of the Bane Chronicles!

To celebrate it we thought we might put up a few lines! You know, for you all to enjoy. Spoilers for Clockwork Princess…

He had not seemed to want to be taken from the cold depths of the water: had fought Magnus as he dragged him out, then laid his pale cheek against the dank earth of the riverbank, and hid his face in his arms.

For a moment Magnus had thought he was crying, but as he stooped down to check on the boy he found he was barely conscious. With his cruel golden eyes closed, he once again reminded Magnus of the lost boy Will had been: Magnus touched his damp hair gently, and said “James,” in as kind a voice as he could. 

His eyes were shut, black lashes ink-dark crescents against the marble-pale lines of his cheekbones. Sparkling drops of water were caught in the curling ends of those lashes: he looked unhappy as he slept in a way he did not when awake.    

Cassie reblogged Sarah’s post and added the following picture:

    This kind of reminds of book two, City of ashes. When Alec is drowning in the river or lake in New york and Magnus saves him.

    So it seems like James is not exactly nice. Not really Will or Jem like. I mean, Magnus keeps describing him as cruel looking

  3. In the other snippet he introduced himself to Magnas as James Carstairs. I hope by this time all of you have read CP2 (spoiler ahead) and know this is Will and Tessa’s son who they named after Jem.

    What is it with James and Magnus?? I still didn’t understand what’s the problem…. why James have amber eyes? And why did he look lost like Will? In CP2 Herondale is a happy family. Will have a children who love him and they are happy. I AM SO CONFUSED. CASSIE HOW DARE PLAY WITH MY MIND!!!!!!!
