Cassandra Clare is spoiling her fans these days. Lady Midnight, the first book in her The Dark Artifices trilogy, has been on shelves for 18 days now and we have already gotten a couple of snippets from book two, Lord of Shadows.
DO NOT GO ON READING IF YOU HAVEN’T FINISHED LADY MIDNIGHT YET!
There is a spoiler in the following paragraph.
Cassie has been answering fan questions about Lady Midnight for a while now and since there are a lot of characters in the first book, fans are divided in regards to shipping/new couples. One character that is stuck in a love triangle (or maybe even a love square?) is Mark Blackthorn. Some fans ship Mark with Cristina (myself included), others ship him with Kieran. Of course the shippers want to know whether their ship is endgame, but Cassie is “the Iron Man of no spoilers” so she is staying mum. To confuse her fans, she just shared two very opposite snippets on her tumblr.
“I know.” Mark brushed his lips across her forehead. Cristina could feel his heart pounding. “We’ll figure it out. We’ll fix it.”
Kieran sat up rather reluctantly. The waves of his hair had lightened to blue; he turned around, and leaned back against Mark, rather as if they were on horseback and Mark was behind.
Who do you ship? Marktina or Kierak? If you mention spoilers in the comments please give a short spoiler warning for other readers.
