Tarot Kort - Cristina Rosales & Jaime

Publicerat: 2013-05-30, 19:38:57 i Tarot Kort, The Dark Artifices,

We’ve moved on from the Major Arcana to the minor Arcana — the first suit is the suit of Rings, which takes the place of the suit of Pentacles. The Three of Rings shows Cristina and Jaime Rosales from The Dark Artifices. Cassandra Jean has included Cristina’s pendant and Jaime’s crossbow, and the rose-pattern ring of the Rosales family.
Jamie and Cristina are not brother and sister. Interestingly, the Four of Pentacles is a card that can be about fear of love: losing it, or getting it. :)

Citat från Stad av Skuggor

Publicerat: 2013-05-29, 20:10:00 i Stad av Skuggor-bok, The Mortal Instruments,

Ytterligare ett citat från den svenska utgåvan av Stad av Skuggor som släpps 5 juni.
Clary blir vittne till hur tre ungdomar med konstiga tatueringar och vapen (tjejen har piska!) dödar en kille inne på klubben. Om det nu är en ”kille”. Han ser väldigt konstig ut på slutet och hans kropp försvinner utan blodspår.

Tarot Kort - Simon Lewis, Maia Roberts & Jordan Kyle

Publicerat: 2013-05-28, 19:14:18 i Tarot Kort, The Mortal Instruments,

Knocking off two here with the Sun card and the Moon card. The Sun becomes the Daylighter, Simon, and the Moon, for probably kind of obvious reasons, becomes the Lycanthropes, Maia and Jordan. I think Simon is leaning on a sundial. First I thought it was a tree trunk, but I’m pretty sure it’s a sundial. As it says on the sundial in Lost Souls, I only count the hours that shine.

Tarot Kort - Seelie Queen & Meliorn

Publicerat: 2013-05-27, 20:14:42 i City of Lost Souls, Tarot Kort, The Mortal Instruments,

Spoiler om ni inte har läst bok #5 i The Mortal Instruments serien: City of Lost Souls
We’ve moved on from the Major Arcana to the minor Arcana — the first suit is the suit of Rings, which takes the place of the suit of Pentacles. The Ace of Rings shows Meliorn and the Seelie Queen: the rings are the gold leaf rings the Seelie Queen gives to Clary and Simon in Lost Souls so they can hear each other’s thoughts.

All the Rings in this suit are family rings except this card, and one other.


Citat från Stad av Skuggor

Publicerat: 2013-05-27, 18:15:05 i Stad av Skuggor-bok, The Mortal Instruments,

Svenska översättningen av City of Bones som har fått namnet Stad av Skuggor släpps 5 juni. Här får ni ett smakprov/citat från boken:
Det är en vanlig söndagskväll och sommarlov. Clary Fray har fått med sig sin bästa vän Simon till klubben hon gillar, Pandemonium. Men det blir allt annat än en vanlig kväll, det blir början på Clarys nya liv.

Tarot Kort - Emma & John Carstairs

Publicerat: 2013-05-26, 18:10:45 i Tarot Kort, The Dark Artifices,

We’ve moved on from the Major Arcana to the minor Arcana — the first suit is the suit of Rings, which takes the place of the suit of Pentacles. The Two of Rings shows two generations of Carstairs: Emma and her father, who plays the family violin. (You can see the name of the second owner etched on the case.) Emma’s father actually does play it; not every generation of Carstairs is musical. Emma is not particularly. It’s a bit of a bittersweet picture since we know small Emma will lose her father in some short number of years.

Tarot Kort - Jace Wayland & Sebastian Verlac

Publicerat: 2013-05-25, 19:35:00 i Tarot Kort, The Mortal Instruments,

Cassandra Clare har postat via sin tumblr ett antal tarot kort som hennes vän Cassandra Jean har ritat utifrån Cassandra Clares beskrivningar av karaktärerna i hennes böcker. Cassandra Clare har redan lagt upp de flesta men eftersom jag inte har lagt upp några av dess här än, så tänkte jag försöka posta 1 inlägg om dagen med dessa tarot kort och Cassandra Clares kommentarer till korten.

We’ve moved on from the Major Arcana to the minor Arcana — the first suit is the suit of Rings, which takes the place of the suit of Pentacles. The Two of Rings shows the Wayland ring and the Verlac ring. The Wayland symbol is horseshoes, because of Wayland the Smith (who gets a brief mention in Clockwork Princess as having forged Cortana) and Verlac is a serpent because, well, ver in French is serpent or worm. (Lac = lake.) 

I like what Cassandra Jean did here with Jace and Sebastian: they’re basically presented as yin and yang, darkness and light. I like the masks as well, one light, one dark, that also indicate that what you see may not be exactly what you get.

Snippet från City of Heavenly Fire

His eyes shone when he looked at her, green as spring grass.

He has always had green eyes, said the voice in her head. People often marvel at how much alike you are, he and your mother and yourself. His name is Jonathan and he is your brother; he has always protected you.

Somewhere in the back of Clary’s mind she saw black eyes and whip marks, but she didn’t know why. He’s your brother. He’s your brother, and he’s always taken care of you.

Spoiler Snippet från City of Heavenly Fire

Publicerat: 2013-05-15, 11:00:00 i City of Heavenly Fire, The Dark Artifices, The Mortal Instruments,

Cassandra Clare har delat med sig av ett nytt snippet. Denna gången är det från den sista boken i The Mortal Instruments-serien City of Heavenly Fire.
Vi får även för första gången bekanta oss med några av karaktärerna från den kommande serien The Dark Artifices.
Det kan innehålla spoilers, så om ni inte vill bli spoilade, skall ni INTE läsa vidare.

A moment later, Helen had returned; she was walking slowly now, and carefully, her hand on the back of a thin boy with a mop of wavy brown hair. He couldn’t have been older than twelve, and Clary recognized him immediately. Helen, her hand firmly clamped around the wrist of a younger boy whose hands were covered with blue wax. He must have been playing with the tapers in the huge candelabras that decorated the sides of the nave. He looked about twelve, with an impish grin and the same wavy, bitter-chocolate hair as his sister.

Jules, Helen had called him. Her little brother.

The impish grin was gone now. He looked tired and dirty and frightened. Skinny wrists stuck out of the cuffs of a white mourning jacket whose sleeves were too long for him. In his arms he was carrying a little boy, probably not more than two years old, with the same wavy brown hair that he had; it seemed to be a family trait. The rest of his family wore the same borrowed mourning clothes: following Julian was a brunette girl about ten, her hand firmly clasped in the hold of a boy the same age: the boy had a sheet of tangled black hair that nearly obscured his face. Fraternal twins, Clary guessed. After them came a girl who might have been eight or nine, her face round and very pale between brown braids.

The misery on their faces cut at Clary’s heart. She thought of her power with runes, wishing that she could create one that would soften the blow of loss. Mourning runes existed, but only to honor the dead, in the same way that love runes existed, like wedding rings, to symbolize the bond of love. You couldn’t make someone love you with a rune, and you couldn’t assuage grief with it, either. So much magic, Clary thought, and nothing to mend a broken heart.

“Julian Blackthorn,” said Jia Penhallow, and her voice was gentle. “Step forward, please.”

Julian swallowed and handed the little boy he was holding over to his sister. He stepped forward, his eyes darting around the room. He was clearly scouring the crowd for someone. His shoulders had just begun to slump when another figure darted out onto the stage. A girl, also about twelve, with a tangle of blond hair that hung down around her shoulders: she wore jeans and a t-shirt that didn’t quite fit, and her head was down, as if she couldn’t bear so many people looking at her. It was clear that she didn’t want to be there — on the stage or perhaps even in Idris — but the moment he saw her, Julian seemed to relax. The terrified look vanished from his expression as she moved to stand next to him, her face ducked down and away from the crowd.

“Julian,” said Jia, in the same gentle voice, “would you do something for us? Would you take up the Mortal Sword?”



Första snippet från Lady Midnight

Publicerat: 2013-05-08, 16:04:00 i Lady Midnight, The Dark Artifices,

Cassandra Clare har delat med sig av det första snippet från den kommande serien The Dark Artifices, som kommer att släppas 2015.
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….
