Volledige titel TLH en nieuwe boek titels onthuld

Cassandra Clare heeft de volledige titel van haar nieuwe serie, TLH, onthuld: The Last Hours

De titel is afkomstig van het boek Great Expectations (Nederlands: Grote Verwachtingen) van Charles Dickens, en waar The Last Hours een navertelling van is. De serie zal plaatsvinden in Edwardiaans Londen en fin de siècle Parijs en zal worden gepubliceerd in 2017 volgens Walker Books.

De titel komt uit de volgende passage van Dickens:

You have been in every line I have ever read, since I first came here, the rough common boy whose poor heart you wounded even then. You have been in every prospect I have ever seen since — on the river, on the sails of the ships, on the marshes, in the clouds, in the light, in the darkness, in the wind, in the woods, in the sea, in the streets. You have been the embodiment of every graceful fancy that my mind has ever become acquainted with. The stones of which the strongest London buildings are made, are not more real, or more impossible to be displaced by your hands, than your presence and influence have been to me, there and everywhere, and will be. Estella, to the last hours of my life, you cannot choose but remain part of my character, part of the little good in me, part of the evil. — Great Expectations

The Last Hours volgt de belevenissen van de volgende generatie Shadowhunters na The Infernal Devices en speelt zich af in 1903. Degenen die het korte verhaal The Midnight Heir uit The Bane Chronicles hebben gelezen, hebben al kunnen kennis maken met een aantal personages.

Cassie heeft ook de drie titels van de serie bekend gemaakt: Chain of Thorns, Chain of Gold, en Chain of Iron. Deze zijn ook afkomstig van een passage uit Great Expectations.

“Imagine one selected day struck out of it, and think how different its course would have been. Pause you who read this, and think for a moment of the long chain of iron or gold, of thorns or flowers, that would never have bound you, but for the formation of the first link on one memorable day.” — Great Expectations

Net als de eerst volgende serie, The Dark Artifices, zal The Last Hours over de belevenissen van de Blackthorn, Herondale and Carstairs families gaan, en de twee series zijn met elkaar verbonden. De volgorde van publicatie is nog niet zeker, maar het eerstvolgende boek dat zal verschijnen is Lady Midnight, het eerste deel van The Dark Artifices.

Cassandra Clare has revealed the full title of her new series, TLH: The Last Hours

The title is taken from the book Great Expectations (Dutch: Grote Verwachtingen) from Charles Dickens, of which The Last Hours is a retelling. The series is set in Edwardian London and fin de siècle Paris and shall be published in 2017 according to Walker Books.

The title is from the following passage of Dickens:

You have been in every line I have ever read, since I first came here, the rough common boy whose poor heart you wounded even then. You have been in every prospect I have ever seen since — on the river, on the sails of the ships, on the marshes, in the clouds, in the light, in the darkness, in the wind, in the woods, in the sea, in the streets. You have been the embodiment of every graceful fancy that my mind has ever become acquainted with. The stones of which the strongest London buildings are made, are not more real, or more impossible to be displaced by your hands, than your presence and influence have been to me, there and everywhere, and will be. Estella, to the last hours of my life, you cannot choose but remain part of my character, part of the little good in me, part of the evil. — Great Expectations

The Last Hours follows the adventures of the next generation of Shadowhunters after The Infernal Devices and takes place in 1903. Readers who have read the short story The Midnight Heir from The Bane Chronicles, have already met some of the characters.

Cassie has also revealed the three titles of the series: Chain of Thorns, Chain of Gold, en Chain of Iron. These are also taken from a passage from Great Expectations.

“Imagine one selected day struck out of it, and think how different its course would have been. Pause you who read this, and think for a moment of the long chain of iron or gold, of thorns or flowers, that would never have bound you, but for the formation of the first link on one memorable day.” — Great Expectations

Just like the next series, The Dark Artifices, shall The Last Hours be about the Blackthorn, Herondale and Carstairs families, and the two series are connected to each other. The order of publication isn’t certain yet, but the first book to be published shall be Lady Midnight, the first part of The Dark Artifices.
