Magnus Chase has always been a troubled kid. Since his mother’s mysterious death, he’s lived alone on the streets of Boston, surviving by his wits, keeping one step ahead of the police and the truant officers. One day, he’s tracked down by an uncle he’s never met—a man his mother claimed was dangerous. His uncle tells him an impossible secret: Magnus is the son of a Norse god. The Viking myths are true. The gods of Asgard are preparing for war. Trolls, giants, and worse monsters are stirring for doomsday. To prevent Ragnarök, Magnus must search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years. When an attack by fire giants forces him to choose between his own safety and the lives of hundreds of innocents, Magnus makes a fatal decision. Sometimes, the only way to start a new life is to die.....

Cassandra Clare Shares New TDA Snippet

Last night Cassandra Clare shared a new TDA snippet when answering fan Q&A's on Tumblr last night. Check out her full post here. Check out her TDA snippet she shared, below:
Here’s a snippet from TDA about angels and Lucifer:

“Let me tell you a truth before you die, Emma,” said the voice. “It is a secret about the Nephilim. They hate love, human love, because they were born of angels. And while God charged his angels to take care of humans, the angels were made first, and they have always hated God’s second creation. That is why Lucifer fell. He was an angel who would not bow to mankind, God’s favored child. Love is the weakness of human beings, and the Angels despise them for it, and the Clave despises it too, and therefore they punish it. Do you know what happens to parabatai who fall in love? Do you know why it’s forbidden?”

I haven’t revealed who is narrating here, but these angels don’t sound too benevolent.

The Clave is reluctant to re-evaluate anything, including theology, but eventually they’ll probably have to. What form will that reevaluation take? You’ll have to wait and see. ; )

I'm looking forward to reading more from this scene!
