It seems like today is the day of news from the Shadowhunter world, and I could not be happier. First we got to watch the first preview from the show and now we get to see the cover for the first book in the new Shadowhunter trilogy, The Dark Artifices, Lady Midnight. Let’s not waste time talking and take a look at the cover.
I am not sure how I feel about this one. Do not get me wrong it is super gorgeous, but it kind of does not match the old covers, and I like my books matching. It looks like a mixture of the old covers with the new covers. I hope that the spine will look the same and like that they will look the same on my shelf. In any case the cover is beautiful.
Emma is looking kickass all ready with Cortana at her side. Honestly it looks like the beginning of 2016 will be good times. Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare comes out March 8th, 2016. Only like 150 days to go.
And I have a treat for you at the end. A snippet.
|Ty lifted his face. He’d always had delicate features, more elfin than Helen or Mark’s. His father had said he was a throwback to earlier generations of Blackthorns, and he looked not unlike some of the family portraits in the dining room they rarely used, slender Victorian men in tailored clothes with porcelain faces and black, curling hair and names like Jesse and Rupert. “Then what is it?”
Julian hesitated. The whole house was still. He could hear the faint crackle of the computer on the other side of the door.
He had thought about asking Ty to look into the poison. But that would require him to say, I should be dead. The words wouldn’t come. They were like a dam, and behind them were so many other words: I’m not sure about anything. I hate being in charge. I hate making the decisions. I’m terrified you’ll all learn to hate me. I’m terrified of losing you. I’m terrified of losing Mark. I’m terrified of losing Emma. I want someone to take over. I’m not as strong as you think. The things I want are wrong and broken things to want.
He knew he could say none of this. The façade he showed them, his children, had to be perfect: a crack in him would be like a crack in the world to them.
“You know I love you,” he said, instead, and Ty looked up at him, startled, meeting his gaze for a flicker of a moment.
Well I hope you are just as excited as I am, and you will share your thoughts in the comments down below, and yeah see you next time my chums.
