Hi, <<First Name>>!

I can't believe summer is over, but on the plus side Queen of Air and Darkness gets closer and closer to being released! I'd like to say I'm saving up energy for my tour, but the truth is I'm working incredibly hard on Chain of Gold, the first book in the Last Hours series. It's great to plunge back into historical fantasy. It's so much fun to be writing about Cordelia, James and Lucie in Edwardian England — the clothes, the adventure, the romance of the city, the carriages, the changing face of London, the secret Downworlder club called the Hell Ruelle, the clothes . . .

I thought you guys might want to get a look at where I do most of my work; this is my renovated barn/office. Can you spot the Clockwork Angel?



The Queen of Air and Darkness preorder campaign has begun!

The Land I Lost is the next Ghosts of the Shadow Market story, coming October 9, and Sarah and I are really excited to share this one with you! Alec Lightwood gets an emergency message from Jem and Tessa in Buenos Aires. When he arrives to help them, he is not welcomed by the Shadowhunters there. He believes it is because of his companion Lily, the head of the New York vampire clan, until a Shadowhunter orphan confides a dark truth to him under cover of the Shadow Market. There's also the matter of a faerie woman in the Market who knows secrets about the First Heir . . .

Exclusive Excerpt from Queen of Air and Darkness

Reluctantly Cristina followed as they pushed swiftly through the crowd. The air was full of sweet, harsh smoke, mixing with the mist from the occasional pool of water.

“Prince Kieran.” A faerie woman with hair like a dandelion clock drifted up to them. She wore a dress of white filaments, and her eyes were green as stems. “You come to us in disguise.”

Mark’s hand had gone to his weapons belt, but Kieran made a quick settling gesture at him. “I can trust you to keep my secret, can I not?”

 “If you tell me why an Unseelie Prince would come hidden to his own brother’s revel, perhaps,” said the woman, her green eyes keen.

“I seek a friend,” Kieran said.

The woman’s eyes darted over Cristina and then Mark. Her mouth widened into a smile. “You seem to have several.”

“That’s enough,” said Mark. “The prince would proceed unhindered.”

“Now, if it were a love potion you sought, you might come to me,” said the faerie woman, ignoring Mark. “But which of these two Nephilim do you love? And which loves you?”

Kieran raised a warning hand. “Enough.”

“Ah, I see, I see.” Cristina wondered what it was she saw. “No love potion could assist with this.” Her eyes danced.

“Enough, I said!” Kieran flushed. “What would it take to end this bedevilment?”
Check out Cassandra Jean’s interpretation of Will and Jem as the Brothers Grimm! The art for the preorder booklet is all complete and off to the printer, but Cassandra Jean still has a few Shadowhunter/fairytale mashups up her sleeve!
