The Whitechapel Fiend Snippet

The third TSA novella, The Whitechapel Fiend, comes out tomorrow! Just a reminder that this novella stars the inhabitants of the London Institute right after The Infernal Devices takes place. It highlights the Shadowhunters finding and killing Jack the Ripper. If you don’t know who Jack the Ripper is, I advise you to look him up before you read the book, but be careful because it’s pretty nasty. Cassandra Clare released one more snippet for us before the book comes out:

“It’s not appropriate,” Tessa said to her husband, Will.

“He likes it.”

“Children like all sorts of things, Will. They like sweets and fire and trying to stick their head up the chimney. Just because he likes the dagger…”

TLH Snippet

A snippet was released this week for The Last Hours, coming out in 2018! I’ll give you my theory after you read it:

“Who’s the boy tripping over his own feet?” Cordelia asked as the boy in question, a slender, ink-stained young man with spectacles and tousled brown curls, nearly careened into Lucie and Matthew.

“That’s Christopher Lightwood. My cousin. Alas, Christopher is far more at home with beakers and test tubes than he is with female company. Let’s just hope he doesn’t pitch poor Rosamund Townsend into the refreshment table.”

Carstairs TLH Flower Cards

More FLower Cards for The Last Hours coming out in 2018! These are the books starring the children of favorite ships from TID such as Wessa (Will and Tessa), Sideon (Sophie and Gideon), Gabrily (Gabriel and Cecily), and Chenry (Charlotte and Henry. But you can’t have a book taking place right after TID without some of the Carstairs line. If you remember at the end of Clockwork Princess, Jem’s uncle (Elias) tried to give Will the Carstairs family sword, Cortana, but Will refused to take it and Tessa asked Elias to reconsider maybe having a family someday and passing it on through them. And he did! He eventually married a girl named Colette Verlac (related to Sebastian Verlac??) and they had two children: Alastair and Cordelia. The only things we know about Alastair Carstairs are he’s the oldest

TSA Discovery

As you know, Cassandra Clare has been releasing the novellas in The Shadowhunter Academy series; so far Welcome to the Shadowhunter Academy and The Lost Herondale are out and The Whitechapel Fiend comes out this Tuesday. We already had the covers for the first two novellas and she recently released the covers for the next two (Whitechapel Fiend and Nothing But Shadows). The covers were just hanging out in my camera roll when I made a huge discovery. I’ll let you see:

The Last Hours Flower Cards

Cassandra Jean has drawn us some more flower cards for The Last Hours! Remember The Last Hours is a trilogy starring the children of the characters from The Infernal Devices trilogy. The first book, Chain of Thorns, will be released about a year after Lady Midnight (first TDA book), so we can expect it in spring of 2017. The four cards released are four boys from four different (but not by much) families. They are also said to be inseparable best friends, so that should be fun. First we have Chrisopher Lightwood, the middle child of Gabriel and Cecily Lightwood. It is said that Christopher inherited Cecily’s blue eyes, along with his younger brother, Alexander, and unlike his older sister, Anna. Christopher is a scientist, so he gets along really well with Henry Fairchild. Next is James Herondale, the oldest child Will and Tessa Herondale, having one younger sister named Lucie. Colette and

TDA Snippet

Another snippet for The Dark Artifices! The Dark Artifices kicks off with Lady Midnight in March 2016 with Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn in the Los Angeles Institute.

“Perfect Diego is the boy Christina’s mother wants her to marry,” Emma told Livvy. Now it was Christina’s turn to look betrayed. “It’s not an arranged marriage, not exactly, it’s just that her mother loves him, he’s a Rosales -”

Blackthorn Flower Cards

Cassandra Jean’s most recent project has been to draw flower cards for characters in the upcoming Last Hours trilogy (the ones right after TID). She just officially released her first two, the Blackthorns. If you remember, it’s Gabriel and Gideon’s sister, Tatiana’s children. She appears at the beginng of Clockwork Princess when her father kills her husband. Here are Cassandra Jean’s drawings of the Blackthorn children (And I’ll add Tatiana’s as well)! First is Tatiana Blackthorn, the younger sister of Gideon and Gabriel Lightwod. We know she had a huge crush on William Herondale when she was younger, so he

The Whitechapel Fiend Snippet

Most of you are following The Shadowhunter Academy series starring former Daylighter Simon Lewis. This series of novellas follow Simon through his journey of Ascending to being a Shadowhunter. The Shadowhunter Academy is being written like The Bane Chronicles was, where she releases one novella a month, then compiles each novella into one big book. You can only get TSA books on ebook for now, but will be able to buy the full book when she is done writing them all. So far there have been two released: Welcome to the Shadowhunter Acdemy and The Lost Herondale. The next novella, coming out April 21 stars the owners of the London Institute around 1890 (right after TID takes place) as they track down historical Jack the Ripper. As a huge fan of TID series, I’m especially excited for this next novella. This pariticular novella is titled The Whitechapel Fiend, as that was a nickname Jack the Ripper bore. A snippet from this book was released a while ago that I am including in this post.

Will stopped glaring at Gabriel, and turned to Tessa. He looked at her and his face softened; the traces of the wild broken boy he had been vanished, replaced with the expression often worn by the man he was now, who knew what it was to love and be loved. ‘Dear heart,’ he said. He took her hand and kissed it. ‘Who knows your courage better than I?’
