New ‘The Last Hours’ snippet: Will adores the Carstairs

Cassandra Clare has revealed a new snippet from a future series she is writing called The Last Hours.

Set a few years after The Infernal Devices, The Last Hours focuses on the children from the characters in TID.

“Cordelia Carstairs,” Will said, after greeting her mother. “How pretty you’ve become.”

Cordelia beamed. If Will thought she was pretty, perhaps his son thought so, too. Of course Will was entirely prejudiced toward all things Carstairs. He even thought Alastair was perfect (and, possibly, also pretty.)

Cassie also gave a walk through on some of the characters from the series a couple of days ago.

image Cordelia Carstairs. Daughter of Jem’s Uncle Elias. Bit of a scapegrace and ever since she was ten she’s had a sort of a crush on

image James Herondale, who is parabatai with image the always-delightful Matthew Fairchild. James is totally in love with and has a very odd relationship with Tatiana’s Blackthorn’s ward image Grace Blackthorn, whose brother Jesse Blackthorn may or may not be dead image a mystery that occupies the busy brain of writer image Lucie Herondale, whose father would really prefer she marry image Alastair Carstairs, Cordelia’s older brother. Shown with Cortana — looks like Elias did as Tessa suggested and passed it down to his own children after all.Alastair is best friends with image Charles Fairchild, who you may remember as Potentially Buford from Clockwork Princess. Charles would like to be the next Consul, alas, and Henry finds he rather gets along better with Cecily and Gabriel’s son image Christopher, a scientist, who is the younger brother of the ever so sophisticated image Anna Lightwood, who keeps her own flat on Percy Street and everyone else’s secrets.

This isn’t all the characters, but it’s a visual tour of quite a few of the significant ones (barring those, like Tessa, Jem, Will and the other adults, who you already know!) I find having visuals of characters often helps while I’m writing so these live above my desk!
