Emma and Julian dance together in new ‘Lady Midnight’ snippet
We haven’t had a Lady Midnight snippet in a while because Cassandra Clare is busy touring the globe for her and Holly Black’s middle grade series Magisterium, but today Cassie took to her tumblr to share a Julian and Emma snippet with her fans:
“It isn’t easy, having the Sight, if you’re a mundane,” Julian said in a low voice. “You see things nobody else sees. You can’t talk about it because no one will understand. You have to keep secrets, and secrets — they break you apart. Cut you open. Make you vulnerable.”
The low timbre of his voice shuddered down through Emma’s bones. There was something in it that frightened her. Something that reminded her of Mark’s eyes, distant and lonely.
“Jules,” she said, surprised. He was hardly a mundane with the Sight, and as far as she knew, he didn’t know anyone who was.
Muttering something like “never mind,” he spun her away, then pulled her back toward him. Years of practicing fighting together made them an almost perfect dancing team, she realized with surprise. They could predict each other’s movements, glide with each other’s bodies. She could tell which way Julian would step by the cadence of his breath and the faint tightening of his fingers around hers.
Julian’s dark curls were wildly tousled; when he drew her near him, she could smell the clove spice of his cologne, the faint scent of paint underneath.
The song ended. Emma looked up and over at the band; the clarinetist with the red hair was watching her and Julian. Unexpectedly, he winked. The band struck up again, this time a slower, softer number. Couples moved together as if magnetized, arms wrapping around necks, hands resting on hips, heads leaning together.
Ooh la la, do you think that ‘Jemma’ will slow dance together? I cannot wait to read about their parabatai relationship and Emma’s forbidden feelings for Jules 🙂
Lady Midnight will be released on March 8, 2016!
Aw I ship them!
I don’t think they are 😁
Or a Clace wedding! I can’t wait!!
I ship them so much! I started shipping them when I was reading City of Heavenly Fire. It’s so beautiful. And I can’t believe that Emma has a boyfriend! That’s not Jules! Jemma has already been added to my ultimate OTPs. The others are from TMI and TID. Cassie is such a great writer, especially on love and fantasy as a whole. The world she created is amazing!
SHIPPING SO HARD OH MY GOSH I ALREADY KNOW THEY’RE GONNA BREAK MY HEART OH MY GOSH I CAN’T LIKE
so … they are dancing … where there are other people … maybe at a wedding … maybe a Malec wedding? *wiggles eyebrows*
