Publicerat: 2018-09-19, 19:08:02 i Cassandra Clare, Ghosts of the Shadow Market,

I Cassandra Clares senaste nyhetsbrev så fick vi lite godsaker från Queen of Air and Darkness. Cassie gav oss även bild på omslaget till Ghosts of the Shadow Market #7 - "The Land I Lost" som släpps 9 oktober.
 
 
Beskrivningen av The Land I Lost är följande:
Alec Lightwood, partner of the High Warlock of Brooklyn and father of a warlock child, is sent to Buenos Aires to re-establish the Shadowhunters amidst the ruins left by the Dark War. When he arrives, he is not welcomed by the Shadowhunters there. He believes it is because of his companion Lily, the head of the New York vampire clan, until a Shadowhunter orphan confides a dark secret to him under cover of the Shadow Market.(x)

Cassandra Clare delar Alec citat

Publicerat: 2018-09-13, 17:43:00 i Cassandra Clare, Citat, Ghosts of the Shadow Market, The Eldest Curses, The Red Scrolls of Magic,

Vår älskade bokkaraktär Alec Lightwood hade igår, 12 september, födelsedag och Cassandra Clare delade tre citat - de två första är från boken Red Scrolls of Magic som är den första boken i serien The Eldest Curses som släpps 2 april, 2019.
 
Till citaten har vi även fått en bild ritad av Cassandra Jean.
 
Cassie delade ett citat via Tumblr och ett via Instagram.
 

YOU. ARE. LOVED.
This is the best message for Alec on his birthday I could think of. Alec, my love, I remember inventing you and loving you when no one else had met you; I remember thinking of one of my best friends, who is now no longer with us, and...

YOU. ARE. LOVED.

This is the best message for Alec on his birthday I could think of. Alec, my love, I remember inventing you and loving you when no one else had met you; I remember thinking of one of my best friends, who is now no longer with us, and wanting to give him the happy ending that he never got. 

Alec, you will get the moon and the stars, the leadership you deserve, and the man you love. And there’s still so much more for you to experience. :)

Thank you Cassandra Jean for this gorgeous art!

And now a snippet from Red Scrolls. Don’t worry I’ve got a little Malecy one for later, but I wanted to post something just about Alec, his heart and his growth.

"Helen," Alec said. "The Clave tells us not to trust Downworlders. Despite the Accords, despite everything, we all get indoctrinated, and we —" He broke off, looking up at the clear, cold stars. "I used to follow the rules because I thought it would keep everyone I cared about safe," he said. "But I’ve started to realize that everyone I care about is a bigger group and a different group than the Clave was built to accept."

"So what are you suggesting we do?" Helen said.

"We change the Clave," said Alec. "From inside. We make new Laws. Better ones."

"Institute Heads can suggest new laws," said Aline. "Your mother —"

"I want to do this myself," said Alec. "I’ve realized — I don’t need to change. And neither do you, Helen, or you, Aline. It’s the world that needs to change, and we’re going to be the ones to change it."

 Happy Birthday Alec Lightwood! You deserve the sun moon and stars. A tiny snippet just for Instagram from the Red Scrolls of Magic (and check my stories for a tiny treat ;) ******************
"I might have gone a little overboard," Magnus admitted. "But I wanted to lay all the grandeur and dazzle of Europe at your feet. I wanted you to have fun." "I have had fun," Alec said. "But I didn’t need any of that. They were just places. You don’t have to set any scene to convince me. I don’t need Paris, or Venice, or Rome. I just want you."
Cassie delade även ett citat från den kommande sjunde novellen i serien Ghosts of the Shadow Market - The Land I Lost, där vi kommer att läsa en del om en av Alecs resor. Novellen släpps 9 oktober.
 
Land I Lost snippet for Alec’s birthday!

Rafe held up his hands to be carried. Alec swung him up in his arms. Warlock hearts beat differently, and Alec was used to hearing the sound of Magnus and Max’s hearts, infinitely steady and reassuring. It was odd, holding a child with a mortal heartbeat, but Alec was getting used to the new rhythm.

The evening sun was scorching on whitewashed walls of the street they were heading down. Their shadows were long behind them, but the town was still bright, and Alec saw for the first time that it could be lovely.

Occasionally Alec despaired: that the world couldn’t be changed, or even that it wouldn’t change fast enough. He was not immortal, and didn’t want to be, but there were times he was afraid he wouldn’t live long enough, that he’d never have the chance to take Magnus’s hands in front of everyone they loved and make a sacred promise.        

At those times, there was an image Alec held against exhaustion or surrender, a reminder to always keep fighting for that day, for their day.

When he was gone, when he was dust and ashes, Magnus would still be walking through this world. If the world was changed for the better, then that unknowable future would be better for Magnus. Alec could imagine that on some scorching hot day like this, on a strange street in a strange land, Magnus might see something good that reminded him of Alec, some way that the world was changed because Alec had lived. Alec couldn’t imagine what the world would be like then.

But he could imagine, in some faraway future, the face he loved best.

Publicerat: 2018-09-11, 18:31:23 i Ghosts of the Shadow Market,

 
The Wicked Ones den sjätte novellen i serien Ghosts of the Shadow Market finns nu till försäljning som e-bok. Om ni är intresserade av Cirkeln, Valentine eller att få veta mer om Jace mamma och hennes bakgrund så borde ni absolut läsa denna. Jag tyckte att den var bättre än väntat och det var faktiskt intressant att få veta mer om Céline och Stephen.
 
Novellserien Ghosts of the Shadow Market som Cassie skriver tillsammans med Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson, Robin Wasserman and Kelly Link, fokuserar på olika karaktärer från Cassies Shadowhunters böcker som Anna Lightwood, Matthew Fairchild, Tessa Gray, Catarina Loss, Céline Montclaire, Valentine Morgenstern, Kit Herondale och sist men inte minst Alec Lightwood och Lily Chen. Men alla har en karaktär gemensamt nämligen Broder Zachariah.
 
Handlingen av novellserien Ghosts of the Shadow Market är följande:

The Shadow Market is a meeting point for faeries, werewolves, warlocks and vampires. There the Downworlders buy and sell magical objects, make dark bargains, and whisper secrets they do not want the Nephilim to know. Through two centuries, however, there has been a frequent visitor to the Shadow Market from the City of Bones, the very heart of the Shadowhunters. As a Silent Brother, Brother Zachariah is sworn keeper of the laws and lore of the Nephilim. But once he was a Shadowhunter called Jem Carstairs, and his love, then and always, is the warlock Tessa Gray. Follow Brother Zachariah and see, against the backdrop of the Shadow Market’s dark dealing and festival, Anna Lightwood’s doomed romance, Matthew Fairchild’s great sin and Tessa Gray plunged into a world war. Valentine Morgenstern buys a soul at the Market and a young Jace Wayland’s soul finds safe harbor. In the Market is hidden a lost heir and a beloved ghost, and no-one can save you once you have traded away your heart. Not even Brother Zachariah. (x)

Handlingen av The Wicked Ones är följande:

Celine Montclaire goes to the Shadow Market to escape. She would go anywhere in Paris, or the entire world, to escape the suffering she experiences at the hands of her family. She did not expect to meet Valentine Morgenstern there, or to have him promise her freedom and the heart of the man she secretly loves. On one condition, of course. At the Shadow Market, nothing is for free. (x)

 
Ni kan köpa The Wicked Ones via Bokus, Kobo, Amazon.
 
Nästa e-bok som heter The Land I Lost släpps 9 oktober och då kommer vi att få veta hur Rafael Lightwood-Bane blev en del av Magnus och Alecs familj.

Nytt citat från den sista "Ghosts of the Shadow Market" novellen

Publicerat: 2018-07-04, 21:55:39 i Cassandra Clare, Citat, Ghosts of the Shadow Market,

Cassandra Clare har via tumblr gett oss ett nytt citat från Ghosts of the Shadow Market novellen Forever Fallen. Det är den sista novellen och den kommer bara att kunna läsas om man köper den tryckta utgåvan av boken med alla novellerna i. Den kommer alltså INTE att finnas tillgänglig som en e-bok.
 
Novellen är skriven av Cassie och Sarah Rees Brennan, i följande citat får vi läsa om Jem som kommer ihåg sina kusiner Cordelia and Alastair:

There were bluebells in the wood beyond the stone walls, and oak trees were dropping green stars in the grass. This garden made Jem think of long-ago children he would have saved if he could: his Cordelia, her sword at her back and her arms full of bright flowers, none so bright as her smile when she saw him, and Cordelia’s brother Alastair with his long fingers over his bitter eyes. Jem had only ever known their faces through magic in the dark. He had never seen either of them with his eyes open, and he never would.

Det finns ingen beskrivning av novellen ännu, men det som vi vet är att den kommer att utspela sig efter handlingarna i Queen of Air and Darkness.
 
Den tryckta utgåvan av Ghosts of the Shadow Market kommer preliminärt att släppas under nästa sommar.

Novellen har titeln A Deeper Love och släpps 14 augusti.

World War II rains down destruction on their world, and Tessa and Catarina become nurses who make bargains at the Shadow Market for enchantments to help suffering mundanes. But can Brother Zachariah bear to see the woman he loves risk her life, or might he consider breaking sacred vows to save her from loneliness?

Tessa är en av mina absolut favoriter bland skuggjägarna, så jag ser sjukt mycket fram emot att få läsa den här novellen.

Nytt citat från Ghosts of the Shadow Market #4 - "Learn about Loss"

Publicerat: 2018-06-19, 21:18:21 i Cassandra Clare, Ghosts of the Shadow Market, The Infernal Devices,

Cassandra Clare har via Instagram valt att dela ett nytt citat från Learn about Loss - novell 4 i serien Ghosts of the Shadow Market. Detta citat är ganska passande då det även idag är samma datum som Will Herondale från The Infernal Devices dog.
 

In honor of Will Herondale Remembrance Day, a snippet from Learn About Loss! Coming out on ebook and audio July 10.

----------------------------

He was Jem again, and he was in the city where he had been born. Shanghai.

Someone said, “Jem? Am I dreaming?” Even before he turned his head, Jem knew who would be sitting there beside him.

“Will?”

And it was Will. Not Will old and tired and wasted as Jem had last seen him, and not even Will as he had been when they’d first met Tessa Gray. No, this was Will as he had been in the first few years when they had lived and trained together in the London Institute. As he had been when they made their oath and become parabatai. Thinking this, Jem looked at his shoulder, where his parabatai. rune had been inscribed. The flesh there was unmarked. He saw that Will was doing the same thing, looking under his collar for the rune on his chest.


#AveAtqueValeWillHerondale
 
Så rörande och lite sorgligt. Will och Jem är mina parabatai-favoriter och när vi får citat som denna längtar jag ännu mer till 10 juli då novellen som Cassie har skrivit tillsammans med Kelly Link släpps.
 
 

Citat från Ghosts of the Shadow Market med Alec och Max

Publicerat: 2018-06-09, 18:44:02 i Cassandra Clare, Ghosts of the Shadow Market,

Cassie har delat ytterligare ett citat via tumblr för att fira att det är Pride-månad. Denna gången är det också ett citat från Ghosts of the Shadow Market, med Alec och lilla Max som är från novell 8 - The Land I Lost som släpps 9 Oktober.
 

Another Pride Month Snippet — Magnus, Alec, and their beautiful family. 🙂 In The Land I Lost, coming out in October!

As he spoke, Magnus gave a little sigh and leaned into Alec, one of the small unconscious gestures that meant the most to Alec. It always reminded him of the first day he’d ever touched Magnus: at the time, he’d thought he felt dizzy with relief and joy because he was finally touching someone he wanted to be touched by, when he’d thought he might never have that. 

Now he thought he’d felt that way because it was Magnus: that even then, he’d known. Now the gesture spoke of all the days since the first.  When he felt Magnus relax against him, he felt like he could relax too.Whatever this strange task Jem and Tessa needed him to do, he could do it. Then he would come home.

As Alec fell silent, Chairman Meow made a wild break for freedom from Max’s loving stranglehold, streaking across the floor into Alec and Magnus’s bedroom where Alec suspected he would be hiding under the bed for the rest of the day. Max stared sadly after the cat, then looked up and grinned, his teeth tiny pearls. He toddled past the shimmering pentagram and launched himself at Alec as if he had not seen him for several weeks. Alec always got the same enthusiastic greeting, whether he was back from a trip, back from patrolling, or had simply been in the other room for five minutes.

“Hey, daddy!”

Alec took a knee and opened his arms to scoop Max up. “Hey, my baby.”

He stood with Max curled against his chest, a warm soft bundle of ribbons and round limbs, Max’s gurgling laughter in his ears. When Max was tiny, Alec used to marvel at how neatly his little body fit into the crook of Alec’s arm, as if he’d been made to nestle there. Alec had scarcely been able to imagine Max getting bigger. He needn’t have worried. Whatever size his kid was, he was always a perfect fit for Alec to hold.

Okej hur sött är inte det här? Det är ju så att man smälter... Ser ju sjuktmycket framemot Oktober när vi äntligen kan läsa mer om Alec, Magnus och lilla Max.

Citat från Ghosts of the Shadow Market #3 - Every Exquisite Thing

Publicerat: 2018-06-08, 18:25:24 i Cassandra Clare, Ghosts of the Shadow Market,

Juni är Pride-månad och för att fira detta kommer Cassandra Clare att dela med sig av en massa citat från hennes LGBTQ+ karaktärer som vi kommer att få möta i hennes kommande böcker - Queen of Air and Darkness, Ghosts of the Shadow Market, The Red Scrolls of Magic och kanske även från Chain of Gold.
 
Via sin tumblr har Cassie delat följande citat från Every Exquisite Thing - novell 3 i serien Ghost of the Shadow Market som släpps 12 juni.
 

Hello my Shadowhunters! It hasn’t escaped my attention that this is Pride Month, and also that it’s FOUR DAYS until the release of Every Exquisite Thing, the story of Anna Lightwood’s first love and the biggest wlw event in the Shadowhunters world since Helen and Aline got married. We’ve got a lot to celebrate! So I thought that I’d celebrate with you all by putting up snippets all month featuring LGBTQA+ characters in my upcoming books–Queen of Air and Darkness, Ghosts of the Shadow Market, The Red Scrolls of Magic and perhaps even Chain of Gold! Let’s have a pride party… it’s what Anna would want!

Anna came up and guided her, forcing herself to maintain her composure as she took Ariadne’s hand in hers and guided the toss. She was surprisingly good at climbing, but once on the ceiling beam, she took a bad tumble. Anna jumped underneath and caught her neatly.

“Oh, very impressive!” Ariadne said, smiling.

Anna stood there for a moment, Ariadne in her arms, unsure of what to do. There was something in Ariadne’s gaze, in the way she was looking at Anna … as if mesmerized …

How did she ask? How did this happen with someone like Ariadne?

It was too much.

“A very good attempt,” Anna said, gently setting Ariadne on her feet. “Just … watch your footing.”

“I think I’ve had enough of that for today,” Ariadne said. “How does one have fun in London?”

“Well,” Anna said. “There is the theater—”

“No.” Ariadne took hold of one of the pillars and gently spun around it. “Fun. Surely, you know a place.”

“Well,” Anna said, “I know a place full of writers and poets. It is quite louche. It is in Soho and starts after midnight.”

“Then I assume you will be taking me,” Ariadne said, eyes sparkling. “I will wait for you by my window at midnight tonight.”

Ghosts of the Shadow Market - Alec och lilla Rafael

Publicerat: 2018-05-28, 17:13:40 i Cassandra Clare, Ghosts of the Shadow Market,

Cassandra Clare har nyligen delat en ny bild som kommer från Ghosts of the Shadow Market och föreställer Alec som knyter lilla Rafales skosnöre, i närheten av ruinerna av Institutet i Buenos Aires.
 
Bilden är ritat av samma konstnär som gjort omslaget till de tidigare novellerna i serien, vilket kan betyda att denna bild också är ett omslag, eller en del av ett omslag till en av de kommande novellerna.
 
Troligen novellen The Land I Lost, som kommer ut i oktober och där Alec kommer att resa till Buenos Aires tillsammans med Lily.

"Cast Long Shadows" nu till försäljning

Publicerat: 2018-05-08, 19:25:11 i Ghosts of the Shadow Market,

Cast Long Shadows, som är den andra novellen i serien Ghosts of the Shadow Market finns nu till försäljning.
 
Novellserien Ghosts of the Shadow Market som Cassie skriver tillsammans med Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson, Robin Wasserman and Kelly Link, fokuserar på olika karaktärer från Cassies Shadowhunters böcker som Anna Lightwood, Matthew Fairchild, Tessa Gray, Catarina Loss, Céline Montclaire, Valentine Morgenstern, Kit Herondale och sist men inte minst Alec Lightwood och Lily Chen. Men alla har en karaktär gemensamt nämligen Broder Zachariah.
 
Handlingen av novellserien Ghosts of the Shadow Market är följande:

The Shadow Market is a meeting point for faeries, werewolves, warlocks and vampires. There the Downworlders buy and sell magical objects, make dark bargains, and whisper secrets they do not want the Nephilim to know. Through two centuries, however, there has been a frequent visitor to the Shadow Market from the City of Bones, the very heart of the Shadowhunters. As a Silent Brother, Brother Zachariah is sworn keeper of the laws and lore of the Nephilim. But once he was a Shadowhunter called Jem Carstairs, and his love, then and always, is the warlock Tessa Gray. Follow Brother Zachariah and see, against the backdrop of the Shadow Market’s dark dealing and festival, Anna Lightwood’s doomed romance, Matthew Fairchild’s great sin and Tessa Gray plunged into a world war. Valentine Morgenstern buys a soul at the Market and a young Jace Wayland’s soul finds safe harbor. In the Market is hidden a lost heir and a beloved ghost, and no-one can save you once you have traded away your heart. Not even Brother Zachariah. (x)

Handlingen av Cast Long Shadows är följande:

Matthew Fairchild is the Consul’s son and the golden-haired boy of the Nephilim. He has the love of his family and his parabatai James Herondale, and nothing to wish for, except excitement and artistry and beauty that do not seem to fit in with a warrior’s way of life. Matthew gets more than he bargained for at the Shadow Market, where he commits the greatest sin of his life—something he can never tell his parabatai, or any of the honorable Shadowhunters around him.

Liksom den första novellen Son of the Dawn så älskade jag Cast Long Shadows. Det var så härligt att vara tillbaka i början av 1900-talet och få läsa om något av det som hänt med de älskade karaktärerna från Shadowhunters serien The Infernal Devices. Att ha läst den serien är nästa ett måste för att riktigt kunna förstå vissa handlingar som karaktärerna i Cast Long Shadows gör.
 
Däremot var det helt plötsligt väldigt många karaktärer att komma ihåg vilka de var och vilka som är barn till de karaktärer som man känner igen från TID. Och det var inte det lättaste att hålla i sär alla, tyvärr. Känns som att det skulle ha behövt att följa med ett släktträd. Men då inget sådant följde med fick jag helt enkelt dra fram släktträdet som kom med Clockwork Princess.
 
Ni kan köpa Cast Long Shadows via Bokus, Kobo, Amazon.
 
Nästa e-bok som heter Every Exquisite Thing släpps 12 juni.
 
När alla noveller har släppts kommer de att finnas tillgängliga att köpa i tryckt format, liknande The Bane Chronicles och Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy.

Citat från Ghosts of the Shadow Market #2 - Cast Long Shadows

Publicerat: 2018-04-22, 16:22:47 i Cassandra Clare, Ghosts of the Shadow Market,

Cassandra Clare har via tumblr delat med sig av ett nytt långt citat från Cast Long Shadows - den andra novellen i e-bokserien Ghosts of the Shadow Market.
 

Matthew understood that Alastair had sent Thomas away for a purpose. He bit his lip, resigned to a scuffle.
Instead Alastair said: “Who are you to play the moralist, talking about tricks and papas, considering the circumstances of your birth?”
Matthew frowned. “What on earth are you driveling about, Carstairs?”
“Everyone talks about your mama and her unwomanly pursuits,” said awful, unthinkable worm Alastair Carstairs. Matthew scoffed but Alastair raised his voice, persisting. “A woman cannot be a good Consul. Nevertheless your mother can continue her career, of course, since she has such strong support from the powerful Lightwoods.”
“Certainly our families are friends,” said Matthew. “Are you unfamiliar with the concept of friendship, Carstairs? How tragic for you, though understandable on the part of everyone else in the universe.”
Alastair raised his eyebrows. “Oh, great friends, no doubt. Your mama must require friends, since your papa is unable to play a man’s part.”
“I beg your pardon?” said Matthew.
“Odd that you were born so long after your papa’s terrible accident,” Alastair said, all but twirling an imaginary moustache. “Strange that your papa’s family will have nothing to do with you, to the extent of demanding that your mother renounce her married name. Remarkable that you bear no resemblance to your papa, and your coloring is so like Gideon Lightwood’s.”

His mama said his papa had such a dear, friendly, freckled face. Matthew had always wished he looked like him.

But he didn’t.
Matthew said, his voice strange in his own ears: “I do not understand what you mean.”
“Henry Branwell is not your father,” spat Alastair. “You are Gideon Lightwood’s bastard. Everybody knows it but you.”

 Cast Long Shadows släpps som e-bok 8 maj.

As a Silent Brother, Brother Zachariah is sworn keeper of the laws and lore of the Nephilim. But once he was a Shadowhunter called Jem Carstairs, and his love, then and always, is the warlock Tessa Gray. Follow Brother Zachariah and see, against the backdrop of the Shadow Market’s dark dealing and festival, Anna Lightwood’s doomed romance, Matthew Fairchild’s great sin and Tessa Gray plunged into a world war. Valentine Morgenstern buys a soul at the Market and a young Jace Wayland’s soul finds safe harbor. In the Market is hidden a lost heir and a beloved ghost, and no-one can save you once you have traded away your heart. Not even Brother Zachariah. (x)

Handlingen av Son of the Dawn är följande:

The Lightwoods, the Shadowhunters who run the New York Institute, are expecting a new addition to their family: the orphaned son of their father’s friend, Jace Wayland. Alec and Isabelle aren’t too sure they want a new brother, and their parents are not assuaging their fears, too occupied with the dark news that Raphael Santiago, second-in-command of the New York vampire clan, has brought from the Shadow Market.

Personlingen älskade jag Son of the Dawn, och jag ser sååå fram emot att få läsa de nästkommande sju novellerna. Det gör väntan på Queen of Air and Darkness något kortare.
 
Ni kan köpa Son of the Dawn via Bokus, Kobo, Amazon.
 
Nästa e-bok som heter Cast Long Shadows släpps 8 maj.
 
När alla noveller har släppts kommer de att finnas tillgängliga att köpa i tryckt format, liknande The Bane Chronicles och Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy.

Nytt citat från "Son of the Dawn"

Publicerat: 2018-03-31, 18:38:32 i Cassandra Clare, Ghosts of the Shadow Market,

I sitt senaste nyhetsbrev som Cassie nyligen skickade ut gav hon oss bl.a ett nytt citat från Son of the Dawn som är den första e-boken i serien novellserien Ghosts of the Shadow Market.
 
I citatet kan vi läsa om Brother Zachariah som pratar med Jonathan/Jace:
 

“What do the initials mean? On your staff. Do all Silent Brothers have them?”

They looked together at the staff. The letters were worn by time and Zachariah’s own flesh, but they had been struck deep into the wood in the precise places where Zachariah would put his hands on them when he fought. So, in a way, they would always be fighting together.

The letters were W and H.

No, said Brother Zachariah. I am the only one. I carved them into the staff on my first night in the City of Bones.

“Were they your initials?” the boy asked, his voice low and a little timid. “Back when you were a Shadowhunter, like me?”

Brother Zachariah still considered himself a Shadowhunter, but Jonathan clearly did not mean any offense.

No, said Jem, because he was always James Carstairs when he spoke of what was dearest to him. Not mine.

Cassie delade även omslaget till e-boken utan alla förbaskade ord:
 
Son of the Dawn släpps 10 april.
