The second Ghosts of the Shadow Market short story is one week away from being available online and we got audiobook narrator news yesterday! English actor Jonathan Bailey from Broadchurch is going to narrate Cast Long Shadows, the story that focuses on Matthew Fairchild and his greatest sin.
Matthew Fairchild is the Consul’s son and the golden-haired boy of the Nephilim. He has the love of his family and his parabatai James Herondale, and nothing to wish for, except excitement and artistry and beauty that do not seem to fit in with a warrior’s way of life. Matthew gets more than he bargained for at the Shadow Market, where he commits the greatest sin of his life—something he can never tell his parabatai, or any of the honorable Shadowhunters around him.

In addition to sharing a photo of Jonathan while recording Cast Long Shadows, Cassie also shared a snippet:
Co-author Sarah Rees Brennan added on her tumblr:
This is cool, right? This is one of Cassie’s picks, as she loves her some Broadchurch! I am sure he will be delightfully mysteriously British at us.
Speaking of mysteries YOU WILL SEE why Tessa wants to cry!
Welcome, Jonathan! I’m sure a lot of people are going to swoon over your English accent. 😉
Cast Long Shadows is published on May 8! I can’t wait to read it, although I’m already worried for Matthew.
