A Snippet from Cassandra Clare’s THE DARK ARTIFICES

It’s not even been a month since the release of City of Heavenly Fire, the last book of The Mortal Instruments series, and yet, Cassandra Clare has opted to tease (or torture) us with a snippet from her next series, The Dark Artifices.  She doesn’t state which book this snippet is from, though, and we can assume it will most likely be in the first book, Lady Midnight, but even Cassie said that drafts always change and there’s guaranteeing the stuff she releases beforehand, especially this soon, will be in the printed version.

Still, we can’t help but soak it all in.

“Yeah,” he said, eyelashes lowering as his gaze traced the movement of her fingers. “It hurt me being away from you. It feels like there’s a hook dug in under my ribs, and there’s something pulling at the other end. Like I’m tethered to you, no matter the distance.”

This is a quote from Julian Blackthorn, according to the tags from Cassie’s post.
