In today’s installment of TMI Tuesday, Cassandra Clare reads from City of Heavenly Fire in a short video and there’s an even longer excerpt that you can read yourself.
Short excerpt read by Cassie*:
From Chapter 1:
Jace broke off the kiss. Before Clary could say anything, a chorus of sarcastic applause came out from the nearby hill. Simon, Isabelle and Alec waved at them.
Jace said, “Shall we join our annoying and voyeuristic friends?”
“Unfortunately, that’s the only kind of friends we have.” Clary rubbed her shoulder against his arm and they headed up towards to the rocks. Simon and Isabelle were side by side, talking quietly. Alec was sitting a little apart, staring at the screen of his phone with an expression of intense concentration.
Jace threw himself down next to his parabatai, “I’ve heard if you stare at those things enough, they’ll ring.”
“He’s been texting Magnus,” said Isabelle glancing over with a disapproving look.
“I haven’t,” Alec said automatically.
“Yes you have,” said Jace craning to look over Alec’s shoulder, “and calling. I can see your outgoing calls.”
“It’s his birthday,” Alec flipped the phone shut.
