New LORD OF SHADOWS Snippet On Unexpected Alliances

Kieran is back in LORD OF SHADOWS snippet, but what in the Angel’s name could he be up to this time?

All fans of the Shadowhunter Chronicles await the sequel to the stunning Lady Midnight in The Dark Artifices series, Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare. We get another snippet with Kieran in it, this time swearing fealty to the Shadowhunters, but there is a surprising unexpected alliance in that. Check out the snippet below!

Kieran muttered something under his breath and said, “I will swear loyalty to Mark. I will do as he bids me do, and follow the Nephilim for his sake. And I shall argue with Prince Adaon for your cause, though it is his choice in the end.”

Something flickered in Julian’s eyes. “No,” he said. “You will not do this for Mark.”

Mark looked at his brother, startled; Kieran’s expression tensed. “Why not Mark?”

“Love complicates things,” said Julian. “An oath should be free of entanglements.”

Kieran looked as if he might explode. His hair had gone com- pletely black. With an angry look at Julian, he strode toward the Shadowhunters—and knelt in front of Cristina.

Everyone looked surprised, none more than Cristina. Kieran tossed his dark hair back and looked up at her, a challenge in his eyes. “I swear fealty to you, Lady of Roses.”

Surprising, indeed, especially as we know that Kieran had been jealous of Cristina because of his love for Mark. What is he swearing fealty for in the first place?

Lord of Shadows arrives in stores on May 23, 2017.
