Och som vanlig är uppdateringarna få med långa mellanrum men här kommer ett nytt citat från kommande The Dark Artifices serien. Denna gång om Mark

“Loved?” he said in a cold voice. “Do you no longer? Remember, half-blood, I know that you can lie.”

Mark flicked his eyes up. He saw the storm in those eyes, but behind the storm he saw two boys as small as stars in a distant sky, locked together under a blanket.

As per usual the updates are few but here’s a new quote from TDA, featuring Mark.

Ja, återigen tillbaka med ett citat, från The Dark Artifice serien denna gång.
Tyvärr kommer jag inte ha så mycket tid att lägga på bloggen framöver vad det verkar. Ska dock skriva ett inlägg om vad jag snöat in på senast så vet ni vad jag funderar på just nu i alla fall.

“I know things haven’t been exactly right between us since I got back from England,” he said. “And I don’t know if it’s because I’m a little jealous of Cristina, or a lot jealous of —“

“JULIAN,” Emma said

Well finally back with a new quote from The Dark Artifices. I probably won’t have much time to spend on the blogg onwards, but I’ll make a post about what occupies my nerdy mind right now, for those of you who wants to know.

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.”

Ja jag är borta superlänge hela tiden, men nu har det varit semester och så ska man ta igen 4 veckors frånvaro på några sekunder…
Här kommer i vilket fall ett nytt citat från den kommand serien The Dark Artifices.

She had wondered, when he’d looked into her eyes and said that he’s had to learn to make do without mirrors in the Wild Hunt, whose eyes he’d been looking into for all those years. Who’d been his mirror.

Now she knew.

Yes I’m sorry for staying away for such long intervals. Now there has been the holidays and this week a matter of catching up with 4 weeks undone work i a matter of seconds…
Anyway, here’s a new unidentified snippet from the upcoming Dark Artifices series.

Seems I cannot upload pictures right now… makes for a very boring blogg…
Det verkar som om jag inte kan ladda upp några bilder just nu… då blir det ju en riktigt tråkigt blogg tyvär…

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!

Clary and/och Emma

Vi kommer bli presenterade för Julian och Emma i City of Heavenly fire. De är väldigt unga där, bara 12 år. Senare kommer de vara Parabatai i sin egen trilogi, The Dark Artifices. Nedan ett nytt citat som handlar om dessa två:

Julian’s skin was cold, as if he’d been leaning out the window into the night air. She turned his hand and drew with her finger on his bare forearm. It was something they’d done since they were small children and didn’t want to get caught talking during lessons. Over the years they’d gotten so good at it that they could map out detailed messages on each other’s hands, arms, even their shoulders through their T-shirts.

D-I-D Y-O-U E-A-T? she spelled out.

Julian shook his head, still staring at Livvy and Ty. His curls were sticking up in tufts as if he’d been raking his hands through his hair. She felt his fingers, light on her upper arm. N-O-T H-U-N-G-R-Y.

We will be introduced to Julian and Emma in City of Heavenly Fire. They are both very young in that book, only twelve. Their adventures as Parabatai will continue in the upcoming The Dark Artifices trilogy.
