Cassandra Clare valde att igår, på Alla hjärtans dag, dela ytterligare ett citat, men denna gång ifrån Lord of Shadows. Citatet som Cassie har delat via fansidan TMISource
ger dock ingen förklaring till vem eller vilka det handlar om, bara att det är om kärlek.
“Because when this universe was born, when it blasted into existence in fire and glory, everything that would ever exist was created. Our souls are made of that fire and glory, of the atoms of it, the fragments of stars. Everyone’s are, but I believe ours, yours and mine, are made from the dust of the same star.”
Cassie har även skrivit lite om den kärlek som vi kan hitta i hennes böcker:
One of the joys of writing a big sprawling tapestry of a series like the Shadowhunter books is being able to explore a million kinds of love: the love of friends like Will and Jem or Emma and Cristina, romantic love like Magnus and Alec or Will and Tessa, the love of brothers and sisters like Ty and Livvy, Mark and Julian, or of parents and children like Jocelyn and Clary. And I think one of the biggest kinds of love all the characters come to consider over the course of their stories is what it means to feel empathic love — to feel love for other human beings because they are human like you, to want to help and protect them, to want to save the world — because for Shadowhunters, that’s what it always comes down to in the end. Empathic love for suffering fellow humans is something we’re all thinking about, considering and feeling right now, and I think that’s what Valentine’s Day 2017 is about for so many of us.
