65 Dagar kvar till Queen of Air and Darkness

Publicerat: 2018-09-30, 18:45:24 i Cassandra Clare, Citat, Queen of Air and Darkness, The Dark Artifices,

I dagens nedräkning får ni ett citat med Emma som Cassandra Clare delade för några månader sedan.

The pyres were still burning as the procession turned and headed back toward the city. It was customary for the smoke to rise all night, and for families to gather in Angel Square to mourn among others.

Not that Emma thought it was likely the Blackthorns would do that. They would remain in their house, closeted in with each other: they had been too much apart all their lives to want comfort from other Shadowhunters who they barely knew.

She had trailed away from the rest of the group, too raw to want to try to talk to Julian again in front of his family. Besides, he was holding Tavvy, who was cried out and almost asleep.

"Emma," said a voice beside her.

She turned and saw Jem Carstairs.

Nedräkningen fortsätter och idag får ni ett lite längre citat som Cassandra delade via tumblr för några månader sedan:

"Please. I've taught at Shadowhunter Academy. I —" Catarina began to cough, her shoulders shaking. Her eyes widened in alarm.

Cristina slid out of bed, alarmed. "Are you all right —?"

But Catarina had vanished. There wasn't even a swirl of air to show where her Projection had been.

Cristina hastily threw on her clothes: jeans, an old t-shirt. She wished with all her heart that Emma was here, that they could talk about last night, that Emma could give her advice and a shoulder to cry on.

But she wasn't. Cristina touched her necklace, whispered a quick prayer to the Angel, and headed down the hall to Mark’s room.

He'd been up as late as she was, so there was a high possibility he was still sleeping. She knocked on the door hesitantly and then harder; finally Mark threw it open, yawning and stark naked.

"Híjole!" Cristina shrieked, and pulled her t-shirt collar up over her face. "Put your pants on!"

"Sorry," he called, ducking behind the door. "At least you've already seen it all."

Det kommer troligen inte att vara något tidshopp mellan slutet av Lord of Shadows och Queen of Air and Darkness, utan vi kommer kanske bara att slängas direkt in i händelserna direkt efter det dramatiska slutet av LoS. 
Cassie hade från början tänkt att det skulle vara ett tidshopp på en vecka mellan böckerna men detta har ändrats.

72 Dagar kvar till Queen of Air and Darkness

I dagens nedräkning får ni ett citat med Kit delat av Cassie i ett av hennes nyhetsbrev.

A ghost, Kit thought. Like Jessamine. He looked around wildly: surely there would be more ghosts here, their dead feet leaving no traces on the grass?

But he only saw the Blackthorns, clinging together, Emma and Cristina side by side, and Julian with Tavvy in his arms, as the smoke rose up and around them. Half-reluctantly he glanced back: the young man with the dark hair had moved to kneel beside Robert Lightwood's pyre. He was closer to the flames than any human could have gotten, and they seemed to eddy within the outline of his body, lighting his eyes with fiery tears.

Parabatai, Kit thought, suddenly. In the slump of the young man's shoulders, in his outstretched hands, in the longing stamped on his face, he saw Emma and Julian, he saw Alec as he spoke about Jace; he knew he was looking at the ghost of Robert Lightwood's parabatai. He didn't know how he knew it, but he did.

Kat McNamara i nya säsongen av Arrow

Publicerat: 2018-09-22, 19:30:08 i Katherine McNamara/Clary,

Trots att det just nu är ett stort uppehåll i Shadowhunters säsong 3, så betyder inte det att skådespelarna går sysslolösa. I alla fall inte Kat McNamara, hon är nämligen med i en återkommande roll i den kommande sjunde säsongen av Arrow, enligt sajten TvLine.
Kat kommer att spela en karaktär vid namn Maya, som är en aggressiv tjuv och gatufighter från Star City. Inget mer är känt om hennes karaktär i nulägget - förutom att hon kan liknas vid en slags "Buffy superhjälte dräparen."

74 Dagar kvar till Queen of Air and Darkness

Publicerat: 2018-09-21, 21:16:55 i Cassandra Clare, Citat, Queen of Air and Darkness, The Dark Artifices,

74 dagar kvar till Queen of Air and Darkness och det firar vi givetvis med ett citat delat av Cassie.

"You hated the Shadow Market in London," Kit said. "It really bothered you. The noises, and the crowd —"

Ty’s gaze flicked down to Kit. "I'll wear my headphones. I’ll be all right."

"...and I don't know if we should go again so soon," Kit added. "What if Helen and Aline get suspicious?"

Ty's gaze darkened. "Julian told me once," he said, "that when people keep coming up with reasons not do something, it's because they don't want to do it. Do you not want to do this?"

Ty's voice sounded tight. The thrumming wire again, sharp with tension. Under the cotton of his shirt, his too-thin shoulders had tightened as well. The neck of his shirt was loose, the delicate line of his collarbones just visible.

Kit felt a rush of tenderness toward Ty, mixed with near-panic. In other circumstances, he thought, he would just have lied. But he couldn't lie to Ty.

Omslaget till Ghosts of the Shadow Market #7 - "The Land I Lost"

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)

Nytt citat från "Queen of Air and Darkness" med Cristina, Mark & Kieran

Publicerat: 2018-09-18, 18:32:52 i Cassandra Clare, Chain of Gold, Queen of Air and Darkness, The Dark Artifices, The Last Hours,

Vi är bara lite mer än två månader ifrån releasen av Queen of Air and Darkness något som Cassandra Clare även uppmärksammar i sitt senaste nyhetsbrev. I nyhetsbrevet denna gången fick vi en lite uppdatering om att Cassie är mitt inne i att skriva Chain of Gold - den första boken i serien The Last Hours.
I'm working incredibly hard on Chain of Gold, the first book in the Last Hours series. It's great to plunge back into historical fantasy. It's so much fun to be writing about Cordelia, James and Lucie in Edwardian England — the clothes, the adventure, the romance of the city, the carriages, the changing face of London, the secret Downworlder club called the Hell Ruelle, the clothes . . .
Vi fick även se omslaget till nästa e-bok i Ghosts of the Shadow Market (som ni får i ett senare inlägg), och nu till kanske det bästa - ett nytt citat från Queen of Air and Darkness:
Reluctantly Cristina followed as they pushed swiftly through the crowd. The air was full of sweet, harsh smoke, mixing with the mist from the occasional pool of water.

“Prince Kieran.” A faerie woman with hair like a dandelion clock drifted up to them. She wore a dress of white filaments, and her eyes were green as stems. “You come to us in disguise.”

Mark’s hand had gone to his weapons belt, but Kieran made a quick settling gesture at him. “I can trust you to keep my secret, can I not?”

 “If you tell me why an Unseelie Prince would come hidden to his own brother’s revel, perhaps,” said the woman, her green eyes keen.

“I seek a friend,” Kieran said.

The woman’s eyes darted over Cristina and then Mark. Her mouth widened into a smile. “You seem to have several.”

“That’s enough,” said Mark. “The prince would proceed unhindered.”

“Now, if it were a love potion you sought, you might come to me,” said the faerie woman, ignoring Mark. “But which of these two Nephilim do you love? And which loves you?”

Kieran raised a warning hand. “Enough.”

“Ah, I see, I see.” Cristina wondered what it was she saw. “No love potion could assist with this.” Her eyes danced.

“Enough, I said!” Kieran flushed. “What would it take to end this bedevilment?”
Cassie gav oss även en Queen of Air and Darkness poster med Ash, ritad av Charlie Bowater, som de lyckliga personerna som besöker New York Comic-Con i oktober kommer att kunna få med sig hem.

78 Dagar kvar till Queen of Air and Darkness

Publicerat: 2018-09-17, 22:28:51 i Cassandra Clare, Citat, Queen of Air and Darkness, The Dark Artifices,

78 dagar kvar till Queen of Air and Darkness - idag får ni ett ganska långt citat, med Emma, Cristina och Mark, som Cassandra Clare delade via sitt nyhetsbrev i december förra året.

Emma had been halfway up the stairs on the way to Cristina's room when she had seen Mark, leaning against the wall on the landing and looking dejected. “Dru won't let me in to talk to her," he said. "I am worried. It is like a faerie to grieve alone, but not, I understand, like a Shadowhunter."

Emma hesitated. She was about to say that it wasn't unlike Dru to lock herself in her room alone, but Dru had looked more than a little upset when she'd left the kitchen. "Keep trying," she advised. "Sometimes you have to knock for twenty minutes or so. Or you could offer to watch a horror movie with her."

Mark looked glum. "I do not think I would enjoy a horror movie."

"You never know," Emma said. 

He turned to head back up the stairs, and hesitated. "I am worried about you and Jules as well," he said, more quietly. "I do not like the Inquisitor, or the idea of you being questioned by him. He reminds me of the King of Unseelie."

Emma was startled. "He does?"

"They give me the same feeling," Mark said. "I cannot explain it, but —"

A door opened on the landing overhead: it was Cristina's. She stepped out, glancing down. "Emma? I wondered if you were —"

She stopped when she saw Mark, and she and Mark stared at each other in a way that made Emma feel as if she had disappeared completely. 

"I didn't mean to interrupt," Cristina said, but she was still looking at Mark, and he was looking back as if their gazes were hopelessly tied together. 

Mark had shaken himself, as if he were casting off cobwebs or dreams. "It is all right — I must go speak with Drusilla." He had bounded up the stairs and out of sight, disappearing around the bend in the corridor.

Cristina had snapped out of it and invited Emma in, and now it was as if the moment with Mark had never happened, though Emma was itching to ask about it. "Mark will need you," she said again, and Cristina twisted her hands in her lap.

"Mark," she said, and paused. "I don’t know what Mark is thinking. If he is angry at me."

"Why would he be angry at you?"  

"Because of Kieran," she said. "They did not end things well, and now Kieran is at the Scholomance, and far away, which was my doing."

"You didn't break him up with Kieran," Emma protested. "If anything, you helped keep them together longer. Remember — hot faerie threesome."

Cristina dropped her face into her hands. "Mrfuffhfhsh," she said.


"I said," Cristina repeated, lifting her face, "that Kieran sent me a note."

"He did? How? When?"

"This morning. In an acorn." Cristina passed a small piece of paper to Emma. "It isn't very illuminating."

Lady of Roses,

Though the Scholomance is cold, and Diego is boring, I am still grateful that you found enough value in my life to save it. You are as kind as you are beautiful. My thoughts are with you.


"Why did he send you this?" Emma handed the note back to Cristina, shaking her head. "It's weird. He's so weird!"

"I think he just wanted to thank me for the escape plan," Cristina protested. "That's all."

"Faeries don't like thanking people," said Emma. "This is a romantic note."

Cristina blushed. "It's just the way faeries talk. It doesn't mean anything."

"When it comes to faeries," Emma said darkly, "everything means something."

Nytt citat från "Queen of Air and Darkness" med Clary

Publicerat: 2018-09-16, 18:18:21 i Cassandra Clare, Queen of Air and Darkness, The Dark Artifices,

Cassandra Clare har återigen öppnat sin frågebox på tumblr och fansen har under några dagar haft möjligheten att få svar på sina frågor om Cassies böcker. Ett fan undrade om vi kunde få ett citat med Clary från Queen of Air and Darkness, något som Cassie har varit sparsam med då många av de scener där Clary är med är väldigt spoilery för handlingen.
Men Cassie har nu valt ut ett väldigt kort citat från QoAaD:
“Have you heard of the First Heir?” said Clary.
"The First Heir?" - vem är det? Alltså gud vill ju så sjukt gärna läsa boken NU. 
Queen of Air and Darkness släpps om 79 dagar - 4 december.

81 Dagar kvar till Queen of Air and Darkness

Publicerat: 2018-09-14, 22:12:20 i Citat, Queen of Air and Darkness, The Dark Artifices,

81 dagar kvar till Queen of Air and Darkness och för att det är fredag så får ni ett lite längre citat med Kit och Ty, som Cassandra Clare delat via TMI Source.

He wanted to ask Ty if he was all right, but he knew the other boy wouldn't want it. Ty was staring at the Market, tense with curiosity. Kit turned to the phouka.

"Gatekeeper," he said. "We request entrance to the Shadow Market."

Ty's gaze snapped to attention. The phouka was tall, dark and thin, with bronze and gold strands threaded through his long hair. He wore purple trousers and no shoes. The lamppost he leaned against was between two stalls, neatly blocking the way into the Market.

"Kit Rook," said the phouka. "What a compliment it is, to still be recognized for one who has left us to dwell among the angels."

"He knows you," muttered Ty.

"Everyone in the Shadow Market knows me," said Kit, hoping Ty would be impressed.

The phouka stubbed out his cigarette. It released a sickly-sweet smell of charred herbs. "Password," he said.

"I'm not saying that," said Kit. "You think it's funny to try to make people say that."

"Say what? What's the password?" Ty demanded.

The phouka grinned. "Wait here, Kit Rook," he said, and melted back into the shadows of the Market.

"He's going to get Hale," said Kit, trying to hide the signs of his nerves.

"Can they see us?" Ty said. He was looking into the Shadow Market, where clusters of Downworlders, witches and other assorted members of the magical underworld moved among the clamor. "Out here?"

It was like standing outside a lighted room in the dark, Kit thought. And though Ty might not express it that way, Kit suspected he felt the same.

"If they can, they'd never show it," he said.

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.

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...


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.

Nedräkningen fortsätter och det är idag "bara" 83 dagar kvar till QoAaD. Följande citat med Emma och Sizzy fick vi av Cassandra Clare för nästan ett år sedan.

Isabelle shook her head, then bent down and unclipped a chain from one slender ankle. She held it out to Emma. "This is blessed iron. Poisonous to faeries. Wear it and you can pack a hell of a kick."

"Thanks." Emma took the chain and wrapped it twice around her wrist, fastening it tightly.

"Do I have anything iron?" Simon looked around wildly, then reached into his pocket and pulled out a small metal figure of an archer. "This is my D&D character, Lord Montgomery—"

"Oh my God," said Isabelle.

Det får nog bli ett Magisterium läs-maraton efter att Queen of Air and Darkness släppts.

84 Dagar kvar till Queen of Air and Darkness

Titeln Queen of Air and Darkness är en referens till dikten Her Strong Enchantments Failing by A.E. Houseman. Men titlen kan även vara en referens till Mab - Féernas drottning i Romeo och Juliet (och en del andra folksagor).
Dikten av A.E Houseman är följande:
Her strong enchantments failing,
  Her towers of fear in wreck,
Her limbecks dried of poisons
  And the knife at her neck,

The Queen of air and darkness
  Begins to shrill and cry,
`O young man, O my slayer
  To-morrow you shall die.'

O Queen of air and darkness
  I think 'tis truth you say,
And I shall die to-morrow;
  But you shall die to-day. 

"The Wicked Ones" nu till försäljning

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.
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. Där även ytterligare två noveller kommer att finnas med i samlingen.

85 dagar kvar till Queen of Air and Darkness och ni får ytterligare ett citat delat av Cassandra Clare.
Kit glanced around, wondering if the growing number of people was bothering Ty. He hated crowds. Magnus and Alec were standing with their kids near the Consul; they were with a beautiful black-haired girl with eyebrows just like Alec's and a boy—well, he was probably in his twenties—with untidy brown hair. The boy gave Kit a considering look that seemed to say you look familiar. Several people had done the same. Kit guessed it was because he looked like Jace, if Jace had suffered a sudden and unexpected height, muscle and overall hotness reduction.

Bilden kommer att finnas med i första upplagan av QoAaD - men som jag har förstått det, bara i den inbundna versionen.

Idag får ni ett citat, med Emma som Cassandra Clare gav sina läsare redan 2017, via sitt nyhetsbrev.

Fear prickled up and down Emma's arms like goosebumps. Since she was twelve, she had been terrified of the ocean: she had always believed her parents had died in it, dragged below the surface by Raziel knew what, choked to death on bitter seawater. The surge and crash of waves, the imagined black velvet of the ocean's depths, had filled her nightmares.

Even when she found out her parents had been murdered on dry land by Malcolm Fade, their bodies thrown into the sea after death, the fear remained. She reached for it now, welcomed it in. She could feel it filling the empty spaces, the hollows left by grief.

She glanced back down at the sea. The surging whirlpool below, the waves slamming like dark blue walls against sheer needles of stone, looked like a painting of a maelstrom, a photograph of a hellscape taken from a safe distance.

The wind screamed in Emma's ears like a warning. Another wave hurled itself against the cliffs, sending up an explosion of spray. Emma smiled grimly into the wind and salt, and jumped.

Borttagen scen från "Lady Midnight"

Publicerat: 2018-09-07, 22:50:26 i Lady Midnight, The Dark Artifices,

I det senaste nyhetsbrevet från Shadowhunter Army som blev utskickat igår fick vi läsa en borttagen scen från den första boken i The Dark Artifices - Lady Midnight.

“So what does this mean for us?” said Livvy. “This connection to the Blackthorns?” She looked anxiously at Jules. “What does it mean that that woman, Belinda, knew about Uncle Arthur?”

“It means that there are people that know about this and will try to use it against us,” said Julian. “But it also means we must be close, close to the answer, or they wouldn’t be threatening us now.”

“But we don’t feel close,” said Emma, clearly frustrated. “At least I don’t. I feel like we’re wandering around in a fog. So what set them off? What made them think we knew more than we know?”

“They figured out we were at the theater for the Lottery,” said Cristina. “Maybe they panicked that we knew who they were.”

“We don’t,” said Emma. “We know they’re a bunch of movie producers with a bee in their bonnet about Blackthorns and a yen to bring someone back from the dead.”

“Who would movie producers want to bring back from the dead?” Ty asked.

“Marilyn Monroe?” suggested Livvy.

“Brad Pitt,” said Drusilla.

“Brad Pitt is still alive,” pointed out Emma.

“Prove it,” said Ty.

Haha, ganska roligt att Dru och Ty tror att Brad Pitt är död.

90 Dagar kvar till Queen of Air and Darkness

90 dagar kvar till vi äntligen får läsa Queen of Air and Darkness. Idag ger jag er ett ganska långt citat som Cassandra har delat via tumblr med Aline och Helen.

"I can't do this." Helen tried to keep her voice steady, but it was nearly impossible. She hoped the strain would be covered by the sound of the waves crashing below them, but Aline knew her too well. She could sense when Helen was upset, even when she was trying hard not to show it.

"Baby." Aline moved closer, wrapping her arms around Helen, brushing her lips softly with her own. "You can. You can do anything."

Helen relaxed into her wife’s arms. When she’d first met Aline she’d thought the other girl was taller than she was, but she’d realized later it was the way Aline held herself, arrow-straight. The Consul, her mother, held herself the same way, and with the same pride — not that either of them was arrogant, but the word seemed a shade closer to what Helen imagined than simple confidence. She remembered the first love note Aline had ever written her. The curves of your lips rewrite history. The world is changed because you are made of ivory and gold. Later, she’d found out it was an Oscar Wilde quote, and had said to Aline, smiling, You’ve got a lot of nerve.

Aline had looked back at her steadily. "I know. I do."

They both had, always, and it had stood them in good stead. But this —

"This is different," Helen said. "They don't want me here –"

"They do want you here."

"They barely know me," Helen said. "That's worse."

Shadowhunters - bakom kulisserna bild på Magnus

Publicerat: 2018-09-04, 18:55:00 i Bilder, Harry Shum Jr/Magnus Bane, Shadowhunters, Säsong 3,

Vi har fortfarande inte fått något besked om när vi får den sista halvan av Shadowhunters säsong 3, men vi har fått en bakom kulisserna bild på Magnus Bane, som jag dock tror är från ett av avsnitten i säsong 3A.
Hur mycket jag än gillar att se bakom kulisserna bilder och bilder i allmänhet på vår Magnus, så vill jag mycket hellre att Freeform tar sig i kragen och bestämmer ett startdatum för 3B. Alltså hur svårt skall det vara? Det är ju bara 12 avsnitt, ge oss dem bara så är ni färdiga med Shadowhunters sen.
Men tills dess får vi tydligen nöja oss med bilder från tidigare säsonger.

93 Dagar kvar till Queen of Air and Darkness

Precis som de tidigare böckerna i The Dark Artifices serien är karaktären på framsidan av Queen of Air and Darkness också undervatten. Annabel har på sig en röd klänning - enligt Skuggjägare tradition betyder en rödklädsel "att nedkalla förtrollning." Att Annabel inte har några runor på omslaget är avsiktligt och det kommer vara viktigt för bokens handling. I bakgrunden syns en förvanskad bild av skyskrapor och en trasig motorväg.
