"The Red Scrolls of Magic" citat med Magnus & Johnny Rook

Igår skickade Cassandra Clare ut årets första nyhetsbrev och som vanligt fick vi lite info om vad hon håller på med just nu, och hennes kommande planer.
Hon gav oss även ett nytt citat från en av sina kommande böcker - denna gång kommer citatet från den första Malec-boken The Red Scrolls of Magic, där Magnus träffar en bekant karaktär från The Dark Artifices.

“Magnus Bane! I thought it was you.”

Magnus turned toward the voice. “Johnny Rook! What are you doing in Paris?”
Johnny Rook was one of the rare mundanes who had the ability to see the Shadow World. He was usually based at the Los Angeles Shadow Market.

Magnus surveyed Johnny unenthusiastically. He wore a black trench coat and sunglasses (though it was night), with short Caesar-cut dirty blond hair and five o’clock scruff. There was something slightly off about his face: Magnus had heard a rumor that Johnny had hired faeries to permanently magically enhance his features, but if it was true, Magnus felt Johnny had wasted his money. The man was also known as Rook the Crook, and he was committed to his aesthetic.

About to ask the same of you,” said Johnny, avidly curious.

“Vacation,” Magnus said noncommittally. “How is your son? Cat, is it?”

“Kit. He’s a good boy. Growing like a sprout. Quick hands, very useful in my line of work.”

“You have your child picking pockets?”

“Some of that. Some passing on trifles like keys. Some sleight of hand. All sorts. He’s multitalented.”

“Isn’t he about ten years old?” Magnus asked.

Johnny shrugged. “He’s very advanced.”


“Looking for anything special at the Market? Perhaps I can be of service.”

Magnus closed his eyes and counted to ten slowly. Against his better judgment he said casually, “What do you know about the Crimson Hand?”

Johnny rolled his eyes. “Culties. Worship Asmodeus.”

Magnus’s heart gave a hard, spiky thump. “Asmodeus?”

Would he have to tell Alec that Asmodeus was his father? Alec had never asked who Magnus’s demon parent was and Magnus had no desire to tell him. Most warlocks were fathered or mothered by ordinary demons. It was Magnus’s bad luck that his father was one of Hell’s Nine Princes.

“Asmodeus?” he said again to Johnny. “Are you sure?”

The Red Scrolls of Magic som Cassandra skrivit tillsammans Wesley Chu släpps 9 april.
I nyhetsbrevet fick vi även beskrivningar av de två sista novellerna från Ghosts of the Shadow Market som bara kommer att finnas med i den tryckta upplagan som släpps 4 juni. Dessa beskrivningar kan innehålla spoilers för er som ännu inte läst klart Queen of Air and Darkness.

The Lost World, co-written by Kelly Link:
While at the Scholomance, Ty and Livvy test the limits of Livvy’s ghostly powers, while Jem and Tessa prepare for the birth of their child.

Forever Fallen, co-written by Sarah Rees Brennan
The Jace Herondale who crossed into our world from Thule is torn between his feeling of responsibility to Ash, who is ever-increasing in power, and his desire to take back the life he lost from the Jace of our world, by force if necessary. Meanwhile, in the peaceful countryside of England, Kit Herondale struggles to adjust to a new life and a new family, and to forget Ty.
