Catching Up With @CassieClare's Newest QoAAD Snippets #Shadowhunters #QOAAD

Happy Mundane Monday Shadowhunters. We're down to the final countdown to the release of Queen of Air and Darkness! I can not wait. Just in case you missed them, here are this past week's QOAAD snippets, starting with today, and going back to last Monday. Don't forget, you can always catch the newest snippets by following Cassie on social media. She shares these on Twitter, Tumblr, and Intagram.

“The Blackthorns and that Emma wouldn’t dare say anything against us anyway,” said Zara. “We still hold their secret in the palms of our hands.” She touched Cortana’s hilt. “Besides, nothing of theirs will be theirs for much longer, not even the Institute.”
Zara was also a true believer, Manuel thought with some distaste. She was a stick and a bore and he had never believed Diego Rocio Rosales actually saw anything in her; on balance, he seemed to have turned out to be right. He suspected Diego had been punished as much for rejecting Zara as for helping some idiot faerie.

Sunday Queen snippet! ONLY NINE DAYS!
Adaon leaned his big hands on the back of a chair. “Why did you come here?” he said. “Why did you bring me this news?” He shook his head. “It is possible my father will spare him. He is well liked by the people.”
“You know your father will kill him for just that reason,” said Cristina. Her voice shook. “Before the Hunt no one in Kieran’s life ever loved or cared for him at all, save you. Are you really going to abandon him now?”

Diana sank back in her seat. Whatever had happened, she knew it was no fault of Kieran’s or the others’, but she could feel the mood of the crowd: stark horror. No one would want to hear a defense of them now. 
“My God, what’s he going to do?” she whispered, half to herself. “What’s Horace going to do to Diego and the others?”

Dru wrinkled up her nose. “I have to be the bad guy?” 
“Come on,” said Kit. “You’ll get to boss us around. Don’t tell me you won’t enjoy it a little bit.” 
She grinned. “Yeah, probably. Okay, deal. I’ll see you there.” 
Kit turned to unlock the door and let himself out. Then paused. Without looking at Dru, he said, “I’ve spent my whole life lying and tricking people. So why is it so hard for me to lie to this one person? To Ty?”

Today’s snippet is art … Emma fights her way through thorns in Queen of Air and Darkness. One of Alice Duke’s original illustrations for the first edition. Emma looking like a badass! ❤️

QoaaD snippet for today!
Julian took a swig from the bottle. “I felt like I was being torn apart inside,” he said matter-of-factly. “To stand there and say those things about Livvy—to call that bastard monster ‘sir’—to keep from ripping Annabel limb from limb—” 
“Do it now, then,” said a voice from the shadows. “Rip me apart, if you can.”

“Oh, very well,” said the Queen, and in her eyes Emma saw an odd light of eagerness. Perhaps she was more desperate for the book than Emma had thought? “As a sign of my good faith, I will give you part of what I promised. I will tell you, Julian, how certain bonds might be broken. But I will not tell her.” She gestured at Emma. “That was not part of the bargain.”
