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?’

Another snippet from The Dark Artifices has been released! Just a reminder that The Dark Artifices takes place in present-day Los Angeles starring Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn. It is scheduled to come out sometime in March 2016. This snippet is fairly short, but it’s still something.

“Did you tell my brother?” Mark asked.

Emma looked up at him. The spotlight had tracked away from them, thank Raziel, and Mark was sharp – boned light and shadows in the moving illumination. “Tell which of your brothers what?”

“You know,” said Mark.

Every once in a while I’m going to post a snippet from Cassie Clare’s upcoming books, so this is one she has released from her first TDA book, Lady Midnight, which will be published March 2016.

Mark stepped out. The elegant lines of the suit seemed to sweep upward, making Mark appear taller, more polished. For the first time since his return every bit of the feral faerie child in him appeared to have been brushed away like cobwebs. He looked human. Like someone who’d always been human.
