There’s not been much word on the first of The Last Hours book, Chain of Gold, but the last word was that it’s set to release sometime in the spring of 2017. Remember that this is the trilogy that centers around the children of The Infernal Devices trilogy. Here’s a snippet!
This snippet focuses on Anna Lightwood, daughter of Gabriel and Cecily Lightwood, in The Last Hours, the first of which (Chain of Gold) is set to come out in 2017. Cassandra Jean has also done a drawing of Anna Lightwood I have included.
Here’s a snippet from The Last Hours, coming out in 2018!
From where they were, they had a perfect view of James, standing straight and polite as Tatiana Blackthorn, wearing a faded fuschia dresses stained with dark spots, advanced on him, a witchlight torch in her hand.
“How dare you come here, Will Herondale,” she said, a savage tone to her voice. “What is left for you to destroy? You murdered my husband and my father —“
Lucie made a small whimpering noise. Cordelia clutched at her cold hand, squeezing it for comfort.
“That’s James.” It was Grace, dressed all in a long white nightgown with a white dressing-gown over it. White slippers covered her feet and her blonde hair was loose, falling over her shoulders. “It isn’t Mr. Herondale, Mama. It’s his son.”
A book has been released called A History of Notable Shadowhunters and Denizens of Downworld: Told in the Language of Flowers by Cassandra “Cartwright” Clare and Cassandra “Starkweather” Jean. It is inspired by the Victorian Language of Flowers.
It basically has many pictures of different flowers and explains what kind of flower they are, plus extra information about those flowers. What the Cassandras are doing are they’re making a book where instead of flowers, it is different characters from The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, The Dark Artifices, Tales From the Shadowhunter Academy, and The Last Hours. Cassandra Jean will be drawing portraits of the characters, and Cassandra Clare will be revealing exclusive details and notes on the characters! Pre-order here!
A small snippet from The Last Hours trilogy releasing in 2018 featuring Cordelia Carstairs, Lucie Herondale, and Matthew Fairchild.
Cordelia clutched Lucie’s hand as they jolted through the streets in the Carstairs’ carriage, surrounded by the blurred traffic of omnibuses, motorcars, and pedestrians. Advertisements whirled past. THE HORSESHOE HOTEL. THREE GUINEA STOUT. NEW PALACE STEAMERS. Signs advertising tailors and fishmongers, hair tonic and cheap printing.
Matthew, sitting across from them on the upholstered carriage seat, was muttering and swearing to himself, his hair sticking out madly.
“Hidebound,” he muttered. “Weasels.”
A small teaser snippet from upcoming trilogy, The Last Hours!
He really did have a most arresting face, Lucie thought. She firmly believed it was all right to stare at people when you were a writer. Writers needed to gather material. That was all there was to it.
Another snippet from The Last Hours trilogy, set to come out in 2018 has been realeased! Remember these characters are the children/other relatives of the characters in The Infernal Devices.
James cried out. Lightning seemed to fork behind his vision, and suddenly he was back in Regent’s Park, kneeling on the grass. There was a firm grip on his shoulders. “Jamie, Jamie, Jamie,” said an urgent voice, and James — his breath tearing in and out of his chest — tried to focus on what was in front of him.
This is a cute one not because of the characters of The Last Hours, but because of Will acting like a protective dad.
“Matthew told me what happened at the park,” Will muttered in a voice no one but James could hear. James shot a betrayed look at Matthew, who shrugged and gave him a half-smile. Matthew could be relied on to tattle on James if he thought it was for his own good. “Thank the Angel for Matthew and Thomas and Christopher.” He touched James’ face. “I regret ever having said that your generation was wasting its time with parties and boating and dancing. All I wish for you is to be able to amuse yourself in a pointless fashion during peace and never, ever be in danger.”
Maybe he had to fight a duck…
Here’s another Last Hours Snippet with a cute James Herondale and Cordelia Carstairs moment:
James and Matthew separated, Matthew to dance with Lucie, and James to speak to his parents. Cordelia saw them glance over toward her and looked away quickly; still, she was not at all surprised when James appeared a moment later in front of her, flashing a smile at his aunt and uncle.
“Miss Carstairs,” he said, with a slight bow in Cordelia’s direction. “Would you favor me with this dance?”
