Yesterday was a busy day for Shadowhunters! We got really exciting news about Shadowhunters, the Mortal Instruments television show, the new UK covers for The Mortal Instruments were revealed and Cassandra Clare shared another Lady Midnight snippet.

In this snippet Emma Carstairs is told about love and the negative reactions it can generate:

“Let me tell you a truth before you die, Emma,” said the voice. “It is a secret about the Nephilim. They hate love, human love, because they were born of angels. And while God charged his angels to take care of humans, the angels were made first, and they have always hated God’s second creation. That is why Lucifer fell. He was an angel who would not bow to mankind, God’s favored child. Love is the weakness of human beings, and the Angels despise them for it, and the Clave despises it too, and therefore they punish it. Do you know what happens to parabatai who fall in love? Do you know why it’s forbidden?”

I cannot wait to finally find out why romantic parabatai love is forbidden! Only one more year until Lady Midnight is published.

    I can’t wait to see the next line! I have my own theories about why romantic love between parabati is not allowed, and I am really curious to see if I am right. Can’t wait for it to be published!
