På begäran lade Cassandra ut ett citat från den kommande Lady Midnight. Ett lite sexigt citat så där, vi får inte veta vilka karaktärer det gäller.

She clutched at him, at his shoulders, his sides, her fingers digging into his skin, dragging him harder against her. He gasped into her mouth when she reached down to grab his soaking wet shirt and tore it up over his head. Her knees came up to clasp his hips and he shuddered, once, as if he were going to break.

Lady Midnight

As requested by a fan, Cassandra posted this snippet from the upcoming Lady Midnight. We don’t get to know what characters are involved in this hot action.

Ja jag vet att jag är superdålig på bloggen nu. Datorn jag använder har strulat något förbaskat- men förhoppningsvis ska det funka bättre ett tag nu.
Här kommer ett nytt citat från The Dark Artifice serien, med Emma i.

So I’ve been terrible with the blog lately, but the computer I’m using has been acting up big time. Hopefully I’m back for a while now.
So here’s a new snippet from The Dark Artifices, involving Emma

“Do I?” Diana leaned back in her chair, tapping her pencil against the back of her right hand, where the Rune of Sight was inked. Every Shadowhunter had a Voyance rune on their dominant hand, allowing them to see through glamours. Emma’s was on her left. “Well, if I know what you did, and you know what you did, maybe you should tell me what your punishment should be?”

“I should have to take care of a box of kittens,” Emma said immediately. “Definitely a box of kittens. You know how cruel kittens are, with their tiny little claws and terrible attitudes.”

När jag ändå är i farten slänger jag in ett par citat från Lady Midnight, den första boken i kommande The Dark Artifices serien.

While I’m at it I’m trowing in a couple of snippets from Lady Midnight, the first book in the upcoming The Dark Artifices series.

Emma swallowed. She was remembering Julian, two years ago, standing in the overlapping circles of fire where the parabatai ritual was performed. The look on his face as they each stepped into the central circle and the fire rose up around them, and he unbuttoned his shirt to let her touch the stele to his skin and carve the rune that would bind them together for their whole lives. She knew if she just reached out now, she could touch it, touch the rune cut into his shoulder, the rune she had put there …

Mark whirled on them. His eyes were blind, unseeing. “You bring the twins in front of me and you kill them over and over. My Ty, he doesn’t understand why I can’t save him. You bring me Dru and when she laughs to see the fairytale castle, all ringed round with hedges, you throw her against the thorns until their pierce her small body. And you bid me wash in Octavian’s blood for the blood of an innocent child is magic under the Hill.

Jodå. Jag läste ut City of Heavenly Fire redan under Midsommar helgen. Men kunde inte greppa mina tankar ordentligt efter det. Jag tycker CoHF är en helt underbar bok och det bästa och jobbigaste med den är att man vill läsa Lady Midnight, den första av TDA böckerna nu! Vilken frustration att vänta ända tills nästa höst, aaaaaaagh!
Tänker inte skriva något om vad som var bäst mer än i allmänna ordalag. Jag älskar hur Cassies historia tar de mest oväntade svängar och att det är nagelbitar spännande HELA tiden! Karaktärerna har man ju fäst sig vid för länge sedan, men introduktionen av Emma och Julian får en att längta efter mer och fler skuggjägare i mitt liv!!

CoHF ill1

Oh yes- finished reading CoHF over two weeks ago but haven’t been able to wrap my head around what I thought. I really think CoHF is an amazing book, av very good finale to TMI. The best and also the most frustrating thing about it is that I acnnot wait to read Lady Midnight, the first installment of the TDA series. The immense frustration of knowing I have to wait until next fall, aaargh!!!
I’m not going to write anything specific or spoilery about CoHF. I’m so impressed with the way Cassie keeps up the adventure and unexpected turns troughout the story. I love all the characters since way back but the introduction of Emma and Julian really made me crave for more Shadowhunters in my life!

Superb illustations by Cassandra Jean

Cassandra Clare lade igår upp ett nytt oidentifierat citat. Vi vet alltså inte från vilken bok det kommer. Är det City of Heavenly Fire, den nästa Bane Chronicle novellen eller kanske Lady Midnight. Vad tror ni? Cassandra Jean har utan att veta varifrån citatet kommer bidragit med en illustration.
Grov översättning:
“Jaha, det var var ju typiskt, eller hur?”
“Vad menar du?”
“All den där ansträngningen med att övertyga mig om att jag inte var kär i dig, och här är jag nu, döende i dina armar”

“Well, it’s a bit ironic, isn’t it?”

“What do you mean?”

“All that effort to convince you I wasn’t in love with you, and here I am, dying in your arms.”

Yesterday Cassandra Clare posted this unidentified snippet on Tumblr. Now way of telling as to what story it belongs. Maybe City of Heavenly Fire, the next Bane Chronicle novella or perhaps Lady Midnight. What do you think?
Cassandra Jean made an illustration without knowing where the quote came from.

While answering a fans question we learnt that Cassandra Clare now has five Shadowhunter series in mind:

“(The five Shadowhunter series are TiD, TLH, TMI, TDA, and very far down the road, TWP. Don’t even ask about that one! It’s too far in the future! There are other Shadowhunter projects like The Bane Chronicles and the graphic novel project about the Circle, currently in planning stages and known as TST, but I’m not counting them: I’m only counting book series/trilogies written solely by me.)”

Cassandra Clare svarade på ett fans frågor på Tumblr och vi fick då veta att hon har planer för att göra fem stycken serier om Skuggjägarna (Shadowhunters). The Mortal Instruments och The Infernal Devices som finns redan nu. Sista boken i The Mortal Instruments kommer publiceras i Mars nästa år, den heter City of Heavenly Fire. Nästa serie som redan är påbörjad är The Dark Artifices, första boken Lady Midnight kommer släppas efter City of Heavenly Fire. Sedan har hon vid några tillfällen nämt en ny serie kallad TLH som kommer utspela sig under samma tidsålder som Downtown Abbey, runt 1:a Värld Kriget. Och tydligen mycket mycket långt fram i tiden en serie som går under namnet TWP- spännande! Tydligen kommer det kanske ett annat projekt också som kommer handla on Cirkeln, Valentins The Circle, men den är ännu bara på planering stadiumet.

Following the summer illustration of The Dark Artifices, we now get the first identified snippet from the first book of the TDA series: Lady Midnight. Lady Midnight is set to be published during 2015.

Efter att ha publiserat sommar illustrationen från The Dark Artifices får vi nu den första citatet från seriens första bok, Lady Midningt. Lady Midnight kommer publiseras under 2015. Jag översätter inte citatet, tror inte det blir så lyckat.

“The cycle hit the beach and spun out. Emma went into a rolling crouch as she flew free of it, keeping her elbows in, pushing the air hard out of her lungs. She turned her head as she hit the sand, slapping her palms down to roll herself forward, absorbing the impact of the fall through her arms and shoulders, her knees folding up into her chest. The stars wheeled crazily overhead as she spun, sucking in her breath as her body slowed its rolling. She came to a stop on her back, her hair and clothes full of sand and her ears full of the sound of the wildly crashing ocean….”
