James Herondale meets Tatiana Blackthorn in new ‘The Last Hours’ snippet
Cassandra Clare is publishing two new trilogies in the next couple of years and although she has shared a lot of Lady Midnight snippets recently, she hasn’t forgotten about her other trilogy, The Last Hours.
Today she shared a snippet from Chain of Gold (TLH #1), which features James, Herondale, Tatiana Blackthorn and a few other characters:
From where they were, they had a perfect view of James, standing straight and polite as Tatiana Blackthorn, wearing a faded fuschia dresses stained with dark spots, advanced on him, a witchlight torch in her hand.
“How dare you come here, Will Herondale,” she said, a savage tone to her voice. “What is left for you to destroy? You murdered my husband and my father —“
Lucie made a small whimpering noise. Cordelia clutched at her cold hand, squeezing it for comfort.
“That’s James.” It was Grace, dressed all in a long white nightgown with a white dressing-gown over it. White slippers covered her feet and her blonde hair was loose, falling over her shoulders. “It isn’t Mr. Herondale, Mama. It’s his son.”
I can’t wait to read about the Herondales, the Blackthorns and all the other families in The Last Hours! I’m particularly interested in Tatiana’s srange behaviour and her children’s relationship with James and Lucie Herondale.
Here is a short synopsis:
The Shadowhunters enter the Downton Abbey era in The Last Hours. Will Herondale is head of the London Institute, where he lives with his wife Tessa. But now it’s their children, James and Lucie, who take center stage, alongside their parabatai, Matthew Fairchild and Cordelia Carstairs.
Chain of Gold does not have a release date yet, but it looks like it’ll be published after Lord of Shadows, which has a (tentative) release date of April 2017.

I don’t know what to think of Grace. She was definitely a in The Midnight Heir of the Bane Chronicles. And I really don’t see what James sees in her, but I think there must be something about her. Maybe she was nicer when she was young? Cuz James had had a crush on her since then, according to Nothing But Shadows.
She really wasn’t very nice to James. I definitely ship him with Cordelia.
Well that was interesting. I want to know what caused her to act that way. I agree that Grace was rude to James in Midnight Heir. I think he should be with Cordelia. Then I think about how mysterious it is that James sees something in her. I am indeed curious to see what it is!
Thanks Cassie for the snippet. But great thanks to Cathrin for taking the time to put up these snippets! If you didn’t I’d never hear about them.
Thank you, Avala 🙂 You can bookmark Cassie’s tumblr, cassandraclare.tumblr.com, so you’ll never miss a snippet.
I just love that it will be a retelling of Great Expectations ❤
I already ship Cordelia and James ❤ and I think my heart will suffer for Cordelia a lot. 😦
Also, Lucie and Cordelia parabatai bond. ❤
Love the snippet! 😀
Something tells me Tatiana still holds a grudge. Though to be fair, Killing Mr. Lightwood was a fair thing to do. The man was giant worm!
James and Matthew Fairchild are parabatai. Can’t wait to see them interact. I came up with a cute name for them. I call them Fairondale!
My most anticipated trilogy yet 😍
