James asks Cordelia for a dance in new ‘The Last Hours’ snippet

TLH spring new

While we are still waiting for a release date or release year for the first book in Cassandra Clare’s The Last Hours trilogy, Cassie has shared another unspoilery snippet on tumblr:

James and Matthew separated, Matthew to dance with Lucie, and James to speak to his parents. Cordelia saw them glance over toward her and looked away quickly; still, she was not at all surprised when James appeared a moment later in front of her, flashing a smile at his aunt and uncle.

“Miss Carstairs,” he said, with a slight bow in Cordelia’s direction. “Would you favor me with this dance?”

“It’s a waltz,” said Cordelia’s mother, before Cordelia could speak. “My daughter does not know how to waltz.”

Cordelia bit her lip. She certainly knew how to dance: her mother had engaged an expert instructor to teach her the quadrille and the lancer, the stately minuet and the cotilion. But the waltz was a seductive dance, one where you could feel your partner’s body against yours, scandalous when it had first become popular.

She very much wanted to waltz with James.

This could be right before snippet #5 on our The Last Hours snippets page!

Right now the publishing schedule for The Dark Artifices and The Last Hours seems to look like this:
