Cassie Clare Shares 'Exclusive Sneak Peek from Son of the Dawn' #Shadowhunters #SonoftheDawn

Shadowhunter fans, if you're a subscriber to Cassie's newsletter, than check your inboxes! Yesterday's newsletter was full of fabulous goodies from book news, to more on the recent cover reveals, including Son of the Dawn, this exclusive sneak peak, and more!

One of the things Cassie shared is the Son of the Dawn cover without the wording, so you can see all the details. The SON OF THE DAWN cover reveal was part of a reveal of the 1st three books in the Ghosts of the Shadow Market. You can read more about those cover reveals here. I am loving the details on this cover. 

Next, Cassie also shared another exciting sneak peak from SON OF THE DAWN. Incase you've missed any of the previous one, you can also read those here

Exclusive Sneak Peek from Son of the Dawn

“What do the initials mean? On your staff. Do all Silent Brothers have them?”

They looked together at the staff. The letters were worn by time and Zachariah’s own flesh, but they had been struck deep into the wood in the precise places where Zachariah would put his hands on them when he fought. So, in a way, they would always be fighting together.

The letters were W and H.

No, said Brother Zachariah. I am the only one. I carved them into the staff on my first night in the City of Bones.

“Were they your initials?” the boy asked, his voice low and a little timid. “Back when you were a Shadowhunter, like me?”

Brother Zachariah still considered himself a Shadowhunter, but Jonathan clearly did not mean any offense.

No, said Jem, because he was always James Carstairs when he spoke of what was dearest to him. Not mine.

Cassie also shared more information about Ghosts of the Shadow Market, including the first book from it, SON OF THE DAWN. Here's what she said:
Of course the thing I’m most excited about at the moment is Ghosts of the Shadow Market, which if you missed hearing about it is a linked series of stories (like the Bane Chronicles and Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy) about Jem Carstairs after he became a Silent Brother. It’s also the story of the Shadow Market throughout the centuries, and how Jem pursues a mystery there that will effect him, his family, and eventually the whole Shadow World. I’m excited to share these stories of new corners of the Shadow World, and hopefully they will lessen the pain of waiting for Queen of Air and Darkness to come out. 
The first story, Son of the Dawn, debuts online and on audio April 10th. It’s the tale of ten-year-old Jace Wayland arriving in New York City to meet his new family, and how he becomes friends with Alec and Isabelle Lightwood. It’s also the story of how he is watched over by Brother Zachariah, also known to us as Jem Carstairs.
We can't wait to read the entire collection of stories. Catch up with all of the previous SON OF THE DAWN excerpts, cover reveals, and more, here.
