Cassandra Clare and Holly Black treated their readers to a first The Golden Tower snippet and some art work last week and yesterday subscribers to Cassie’s newsletter already got another snippet from the final Magisterium book:
Call took the path that led alongside one of the Magisterium’s many underground rivers. It glowed eerie blue in the light of the moss. On the way, he peered around, looking for Warren. He even called the little lizard’s name a few times, his voice echoing through the caverns. He was sure he’d see Warren during the short boat trip, but by the time he got to the far bank, he decided Warren was avoiding him.
When Call reached Rufus’s door, he tapped on it and heard Mr. Rajavi’s voice echo from inside: “Come in.” The office looked much as it always had. The same papers were tacked to the walls, covered in what Call now recognized as alchemical equations. The big couch was gone, replaced by more bookshelves, and the old workstation had been replaced by one made of a gleaming clear material — quartz, Call guessed. Tamara’s father sat behind Rufus’s roll-top desk.
Oh, God, Call thought. Tamara’s father. And he’d just kissed Tamara. Was that why Mr. Rajavi was here?
Don’t be totally ridiculous, said Aaron. Do you think he’s psychic or something?
Kimiya was grounded for making out with Evil Overlord Alex — Tamara had said so. Mr. Rajavi had a well-established policy of not liking his children making out with Evil Overlords.
I’m sure Callum is making a mountain out of a molehill and Mr. Rajavi doesn’t know that Callum and Tamara kissed.
I’m really excited to read The Golden Tower – only one month and ten days to go until it’s released!
Do you guys think that Callum and Tamara are going to end up together? Sound off in the comments below!
