Christmas has come one day early this year because Cassandra Clare’s fans can now pre-order an exclusive Waterstones edition of Chain of Gold! ❤
Many readers fell in love with Waterstones’ rune editions for The Dark Artifices and were longing for another exlusive edition for the sequel to The Infernal Devices. Well, Waterstones and Walker Books listened to our pleas so here is the edition in all its glory:
Exclusive hardback edition with wibalin and gold foil cover, salmon coloured endpapers, and extra content: a letter from Ragnor Fell to Magnus Bane, and is stamp signed by the author.Also includes the extra content found in the first print run of the standard edition: bonus art and a short story.
From bestselling author Cassandra Clare comes the first novel in a brand new trilogy where evil hides in plain sight and love cuts deeper than any blade. Chain of Gold is a Shadowhunters novel.Cordelia Carstairs is a Shadowhunter, a warrior trained since childhood to battle demons. When her father is accused of a terrible crime, she and her brother travel to Edwardian London in the hope of preventing the family’s ruin. Cordelia’s mother wants to marry her off, but Cordelia is determined to be a hero rather than a bride. Soon Cordelia encounters childhood friends James and Lucie Herondale and is drawn into their world of glittering ballrooms, secret assignations and supernatural salons, where vampires and warlocks mingle with mermaids and magicians. All the while, she must hide her secret love for James, who is sworn to marry someone else.
But Cordelia’s new life is blown apart when a shocking series of demon attacks devastate London. These monsters are nothing like those the Shadowhunters have fought before – these demons walk in daylight, strike down the unwary with incurable poison and seem impossible to kill. London is immediately quarantined. Trapped in the city, Cordelia and her friends discover that their own connection to a dark legacy has gifted them with incredible powers – and force a brutal choice that will reveal the true cruel price of being a hero.
