Even though we are still waiting for Jamie’s second surprise (from the looks of things, we won’t get it for a little while) Cassie was kind enough to share a snippet from City of Heavenly Fire in the absence of the surprise.
“He’s not feeling well,” Clary said, catching at Simon’s wrist. “We’re going.”
“No,” Simon said. “No, I — I need to talk to him. To the Inquisitor.”
Robert reached into his jacket and drew out a crucifix. Clary stared in shock as he held it up between himself and Simon. “I speak to the Night’s Children Council representative, or to the head of the New York clan,” he said. “Not to any vampire who comes to knock at my door —“
Simon reached out and plucked the cross out of Robert’s hand. “Wrong religion,” he said.
Awesome – right? I absolutely LOVE getting snippets, and love Simon telling Robert off, have a feeling there’s a little bit of tension going on here!
What do you think?
Can’t wait for next May!!!
