Happy birthday to our beloved Jace!
To celebrate Jace’s 27th (21st in the Dark Artifices timeline) birthday, Cassandra Clare took to her Instagram to share some Clace art ♥ and also posted a snippet from her upcoming short story Son of the Dawn, which is is the first installment in her Ghosts of the Shadow Market short story collection.

Happy birthday Jace Herondale! 🎉 🎉 🎈 today is your true birthday (we always knew you were a Capricorn). I remember how long it took to figure you out, though I always knew your rapier wit hid your inner pain. You're one of my first babies, one of the first characters I created, and as such will always have a special place in my heart. I'll be posting a snippet from Son of the Dawn about Jace a little later; in the meantime have some art of Jace and Clary's first kiss by Loweana! #tsc #theshadowhunterchronicles #jaceherondale
By the Angel, we love Loweana’s art and now we also want to kiss Jace!
And here is the snippet that Cassie shared:
Aww! The snippet gave us so many feels and it reminds us of City of Ashes (chapter 19) when Maryse and Jace talked about his childhood and how they first met:
“You were the first thing I loved, you see, after him, that wasn’t my own blood. The first living creature. And you were just a child-”
“You thought I was someone else.”
No. I’ve always known just who you are. Ever since the first time I saw you getting off the ship from Idris, when you were ten years old – you walked into my heart, just as my own children did when they were born.” She shook her head. “You can’t understand. You’ve never been a parent. You never love anything like you like your children.”
What do you think of the snippet and the art? Sound off in the comments below and also tell us what you’d give Jace for his birthday 🙂
Son of the Dawn is written by Cassie and Sarah Rees Brennan and it’s out on April 10!
