Cordelia, Lucie and Matthew drive in a carriage in new ‘The Last Hours’ snippet

TLH spring newIt’s been a while since Cassandra Clare has shared a snippet from her second new trilogy, The Last Hours, but today she took to her tumblr to publish a snippet that features the parabatai pair Lucie and Cordelia as well as Matthew:

Cordelia clutched Lucie’s hand as they jolted through the streets in the Carstairs’ carriage, surrounded by the blurred traffic of omnibuses, motorcars, and pedestrians. Advertisements whirled past. THE HORSESHOE HOTEL. THREE GUINEA STOUT. NEW PALACE STEAMERS. Signs advertising tailors and fishmongers, hair tonic and cheap printing.

Matthew, sitting across from them on the upholstered carriage seat, was muttering and swearing to himself, his hair sticking out madly.

“Hidebound,” he muttered. “Weasels.”

“What?” said Lucie.

“I think he said hidebound weasels,” said Cordelia. “But who do you mean, Matthew? Are you angry at us?”

Matthew flung himself sideways so his long legs were pulled up on the bench seat in front of him, and his profile was presented to Lucie and Cordelia. It was a fine profile: he was much more delicate-featured than his brother, who had a broad, strong face. Matthew had a face that looked as if it had been meant to be painted on china.

“Of course not,” he said. “It’s just appalling how they all treat James.” He glanced at Cordelia, and then at Lucie. “She knows, doesn’t she?”

The Last Hours does not have a release date yet, but it is likely that it will be published after the second book of Cassie’s The Dark Artifices trilogy.

You can check out all the previously released snippets here or have a look at Cassie’s TLH Pinterest page.
