Cassandra Clare shares sneak peek from the ‘City of Bones: 10th Anniversary Edition’

Cassandra Clare sent another newsletter to her subscribers in which she shared a new Reginald photo, an upcoming appearance (YALLFest in Charleston, North Carolina, November 10-11) and an exclusive sneak peek at bonus content that is going to be in City of Bones: 10th Anniversary Edition. Like before, we waited a couple of days before sharing the content of Cassie’s newsletter here. Seriously, just subscribe to it 😉

We’re thrilled to share a sneak peek at exclusive content that will appear in the 10th Anniversary Edition of City of Bones, out November 7th!

This special edition will feature new portraits of Clary, Jace, Alec, Isabelle, Magnus, and Simon, beautifully rendered by Cassandra Jean. It will also include Inquisitor Herondale’s files on many prominent characters, written in between the events of City of Bones and City of Ashes.

Here’s a look at Alec’s portrait:

And his file:

Updated: September 2007

Name: Alexander Gideon Lightwood

Birth date: September 12, 1989

Scars/physical characteristics: Black hair, blue eyes. Voyance rune on right hand, parabatai rune on right shoulder.

Points of interest: Alexander Lightwood grew up in the New York Institute, the child of exiled former Circle members Robert and Maryse Lightwood. Despite his isolation, Alexander seems to have grown into a loyal Shadowhunter, with a strong sense of duty to the Covenant.

Strengths: Sensible, obedient, skilled with bow.

Weaknesses: Alexander is a Lightwood. They tend to be easily led. This is evidenced by the fact that Alexander has been coerced into forming the parabatai bond with Jonathan Morgenstern, who is almost certainly an agent of Valentine. This bond took place against my advice, as I was overruled by Brother Zachariah.

Significant relationships: Maryse Lightwood, mother. Robert Lightwood, father. Isabelle Lightwood, sister. Maxwell Lightwood, brother. Jonathan Morgenstern, parabatai and foster brother. Hodge Starkweather, former tutor.

Recommended actions: Alexander is the only member of the Lightwood family who is truly loyal to the Clave. If he is ever freed from his bond with Jonathan, he should be recommended for promotion.

City of Bones: 10th Anniversary Edition is published on November 7.

    This Biography on Alec really needs to be updated.

    • 😀 It’s what Inquisitor Herondale knew about Alec in 2007.
      You’ll have to (re)read the books for the ‘new’ information, especially Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy #9 (Born to Endless Night) and Lord of Shadows 😉
