first chapter of city of glass, cookie
I've put up the first chapter of City of Glass (well, actually my boyfriend did it because I don't have the slightest idea how to update my web page:
Those who went to my signings on tour will be familiar with this already. For you guys, and for fun, I'm also going to paste in a cookie from CoG under the cut. And because it will be a while since I update again, since I am about to 1) turn in the final edits on City of Glass and 2) run away to Italy, where I will stay until stress levels return to normal. Also, I might buy some shoes there. Mmm, shoes.
The moment the door shut behind Clary, Jace slumped back against the wall, as if his legs had been cut out from under him. He looked gray with a mixture of horror, shock, and what looked almost like . . .
relief, as if a catastrophe had been narrowly avoided.
“Jace,” Alec said, taking a step toward his friend. “Do you really think —”
Jace spoke in a low voice, cutting Alec off. “Get out,” he said. “Just get out, both of you.”
“So you can do what?” Isabelle demanded. “Wreck your life some more? What the hell was that about, Jace?”
Jace shook his head. “I sent her home. It was the best thing for her.”
“You did a hell of a lot more than send her home. You destroyed her. Did you see her face?”
“It was worth it,” said Jace. “You wouldn’t understand.”
“For her, maybe,” Isabelle said. “I hope it winds up worth it for you.”
Jace turned his face away. “Just . . . Leave me alone, Isabelle.
Isabelle cast a startled look toward her brother. Jace never said please. Alec put a quieting hand on her shoulder. “Never mind, Jace,” he said, as kindly as he could. “I’m sure she’ll be fine.”
Jace raised his head and looked at Alec without actually looking at him — he seemed to be staring off at nothing. “No, she won’t,” he said. “But I knew that. Speaking of which, you might as well tell me
what you came in here to tell me. You seemed to think it was pretty important at the time.”
Alec took his hand off Isabelle’s shoulder. “I didn’t want to tell you in front of Clary —”
Jace’s head snapped back and his eyes focused on Alec. “Didn’t want to tell me what in front of Clary?”
Alec hesitated. It was clear that Jace was pushed to the limit right now, and he could only imagine what effect further unpleasant surprises might have on him. But there was no way to hide this. Jace
had to know.
Hey there, just thought I'd post this for those who like the trilogy. I went to the signing she did in Berkely California and she didn't read this. She read something else, but I think I like this bit way better. What do you think of it?
