Emma and Julian are ‘tethered’ to each other in new ‘Dark Artifices’ snippet

The Dark Artifices artCassandra Clare knows what we want. And what we want is more snippets from The Dark Artifices. Cassie notes “that drafts always change and I can’t promise the snippets will make it into the book! Though they often do.”

Check out this new snippet from Lady Midnight, the first book in The Dark Artifices, where Julian opens up to Emma.

“Yeah,” he said, eyelashes lowering as his gaze traced the movement of her fingers. “It hurt me being away from you. It feels like there’s a hook dug in under my ribs, and there’s something pulling at the other end. Like I’m tethered to you, no matter the distance.”

The Dark Artifices: Lady Midnight will be released in 2015/16.

    I don’t want them to be Parabati’s! I love them together but, the minute there bonded it’s forbidden to be together. Maybe Cassie, is going to do something like that but I just want them together already. And yeah, I know that won’t happen till like book2 or 3 but I’ll wait. It’s so, worth it for a Cassie book. ❤ All the mundane's out there don't know that but they should.

      Not trying to be rude but is that your real name cuall it reminds me of is something like the sisters Grimm meets the shadowhunters and that would be scary and catastrophic

  10. AHHH! Please come out in 2015! I can’t wait any later!

  11. Ugh, another couple that will tug at my heart strings… and I LOVE it!!!! Jules is so damn sweet. He softens Emma’s tough exterior. I want them to be romantically linked already, but they are parabati. Ugh, what’s a shadow hunter to do ?

  12. aaawwwwwwwwww
    cant wait for 2015

    Oh, I already ship these 2!

  15. I would love to see Julian and Emma use the extra power created by love and their parabatai bond to defeat the Unseelie King and retrieve the black book. Maybe someone will still destroy the parabatai bonds and save them for their sacrifice or great achievement just as they talked of Jace and Clary getting what they want after saving the world. It may even be the rest of the Blackthorn family or Christina. I am excited to see how all these dynamics play out. We still have Clary’s premonition, the burned out areas of two different worlds, Jem and other significant others of wizards…. So many ways all these paths can come together!! I am hoping for the Emma and Julian save the world and then are somehow saved by those they love rather than killing those very people/fae.
