Happy Heronstairs Day!





Cassandra Clare declared today, 29 September, Heronstairs Day! And in honour of our amazing parabatai Will and Jem, she wrote a lovely snippet (and a happy one for a change!).

Cassandra Clare heeft vandaag bestempeld als Heronstairs Day! En ter ere van onze onvergetelijke parabatai Will en Jem, heeft ze een prachtig nieuw fragment gepubliceerd (en eentje die vrolijk is voor de verandering)!


“I love you,” Will said. “I love you desperately. I have never felt for another the way I feel for you. My love for you is as eternal as the sea, and like the rocks against which the waves are dashed, again and again, it shall remain unyielding. In you I have found my own heart’s heart, which I had thought previously only to find in dreams. Never could I have encompassed a better partner, a finer friend, a more beauteous companion. Allow me just once to kiss your sweet lips.”

Jem looked up from the fire, where he was petting Church. Church had fallen asleep and all his fur was sticking up. “I do wish you would cease reading to me from Gothic novels,” he said. “They give me the pip.”

“Love is a noble emotion!” Will cried, waving his arms about with such energy that the book he was reading slid from his lap. His hair was sticking up like Church’s fur, or a bit as if he had been electrocuted.

“Quite,” said Jem, and rolled over onto his back, smiling up at Will from his place by the fire. Church twitched and snuffled, curling up against his shoulder. “Now read me something with a fight scene in it, won’t you?” [x]


Later Cassandra Jean also posted a new illustration.

Cassandra Jean heeft later ook een bijpassende illustratie gedeeld.




But lets celebrate with even more Heronstairs!

Laten we het vieren met nog meer Heronstairs!


[News] City of Heavenly Fire placeholder cover and more

Deze week heeft Cassandra Clare de tijdelijke cover voor City of Heavenly Fire gedeeld. Op de cover staan nog niet de personages. De uiteindelijke versie zal pas later worden vrijgegeven.






[News] Today’s livestream and The Secret Treasons

Today Cassandra Jean also did another livestream, during which she did a drawing of Matthew Fairchild and James Herondale from TLH.

During the livestream chat Cassandra Clare announced the title of the graphic novel project about the early days of the Circle, that she has been working on: The Secret Treasons. The artwork will be done by Cassandra Jean.

Hopefully there will be more news soon!

September and October [Men of the Shadowhunter Universe calendar]

Today Cassandra Clare shared two more pictures of Cassandra Jean’s Men of the Shadowhunter Universe calendar.

Mr. September is no other than Simon Lewis and Mr. October is Raphael Santiago, whom we’ve gotten to know better in the latest installment of The Bane Chronicles, Saving Raphael Santiago. (For the people that read them in e-book already)


Vandaag heeft Cassandra Clare nog twee afbeeldingen gedeeld van Cassandra Jean’s Men of the Shadowhunter Universe calendar.

Mr. September is niemand minder dan Simon Lewis en Mr. October is Raphael Santiago, die we beter hebben leren kennen in het recentste deel van The Bane Chronicles, Saving Raphael Santiago.

Unidentified snippet

[Dutch below the cut]

Cassandra Clare shared a new snippet on her Tumblr:

“Well, it’s a bit ironic, isn’t it?”

“What do you mean?”

“All that effort to convince you I wasn’t in love with you, and here I am, dying in your arms.”

She posted it as an unidentified snippet, so it might not be related to City of Heavenly Fire. Though this might just be to cause a little confusion here and there.


August – Mark Blackthorn [Men of the Shadowhunter Universe calendar]

Cassandra Clare shared another month of Cassandra Jean’s Men of the Shadowhunter Universe calendar. For August we have Mark Blackthorn from The Dark Artifices.
