James observes his parents in new ‘The Last Hours’ snippet

TLH spring new

Ready for a Herondale teaser from The Last Hours? Ask and Cassandra Clare shall deliver.

In the latest snippet from The Last Hours, James Herondale takes a look at his “extraordinary” parents.

James could see his mother moving like an anxious pale star among the guests in her lilac dress, greeting each of them warmly, welcoming them to her home. She had not glamoured herself to look her husband’s age for the evening, and she appeared enormously young, though her hair was done up like a gracious older woman’s, not a girl’s. When Will materialized out of the crowd and came to put his arm around Tessa, smiling down at her, the gray at his temples flashed like silver. James looked away; he loved his parents for being extraordinary, but sometimes he also hated them for the same thing.

The first book in The Last Hours Chain of Thorns is slated for a 2017 release*

    I really hope I’ll still be into Shadowhunter Chronicles by the time this comes out…

  5. it might take me til 2017 to be ok with a Will with grey and who is middle aged. But if TLH is published earlier i will not complain at all. Bring on more Shadowhunter stories! I can’t wait!

  6. 2017!! That’s to far away I can’t survive without a Herondale in my life till then!!!! Does this mean we won’t have a Cassandra Clare release in 2016 at all?

  7. Wow, I feel a lot of empathy for James. Must be hard to be constantly compared against your parents, especially if they are as famous as Will and Tessa are.

    I really hope Cassandra Clare never stops writing… Because if she did I’d feel as if Sebastian were back, like in Earth. And it wouldn’t be pretty. Like. Seriously. And DO WE REALLY HAVE TO WAIT THAT LOOOONG??!! 2017 I’ll be 18 if June 9th passes by.

  9. 2017????!!!!!
