Hello, good morning, good afternoon or good evening! It’s been more than six months since the publication of Cassandra Clare’s Chain of Gold and many of her readers are eagerly anticipating the sequel, Chain of Iron. Yesterday, Cassie took to her tumblr to share a new snippet and I’m sure a lot of shippers are going to enjoy it.
James closed his eyes. Against the back of his eyelids, he could see the city take shape—the minarets flung darkly against a blue sky, the silver river. Cordelia’s voice, low and familiar, rose above the clamor of his nightmare. He followed it out of the darkness, like Theseus following the length of thread out of the Minotaur’s labyrinth.
And it was not the first time. Her voice had lifted him out of fever, once, had been his light in shadows… .
A sharp pain spiked through his temples. He blinked his eyes open: he was firmly back in the present, his friends all looking at him worriedly. Cordelia had already moved away from him, leaving behind the lingering scent of jasmine. He could still feel where her fingers had rested against his shoulder.
Don’t you just want to know more immediately? 😉
Cassie also answered a lot of The Last Hours questions, so here’s another Q&A – I believe this is part 9.
That’s all for the Chain of Gold/Chain of Iron stuff. We will be sharing The Eldest Curses and The Wicked Powers posts very soon.
Chain of Iron is published on March 2, 2021!
