Anyone who has read Clockwork Prince will get what I mean when I say that I CANNOT wait another year for Clockwork Princess. It's all the more frustrating when you know it's already written and just sitting there waiting to be read. And then you find out that not only is it only written it's release date has been moved from November 2012 to March 2013!
Luckily I came across some spoilers that occupied me for a while so I didn't explode. Me being the nice person I am, you get to see them right here on my blog. If it wasn't obvious enough this post will contain SPOILERS. Just in case you didn't get that from me saying I was sharing teasers.
“Would you?” said Gabriel to Will, hotly. “If it was your family?” His lip curled. “Never mind. It’s not as if you know the meaning of loyalty —”“Gabriel.” Gideon’s voice was a reprimand to his brother. “Do not speak to Will in that manner.”
“He began it,” Cecily said, jerking her chin at Will, though she knew it was pointless. Jem, Will’s parabatai, treated her with the distant sweet kindness reserved for the little sisters of one’s friends, but he would always side with Will. Kindly, but firmly, he put Will above everything else in the world. Well, nearly everything.
Jem knotted his fingers in the material of Will’s sleeve. “You are my parabatai,” he said. “You said once I could ask anything of you.”
Jem drew the bow back and let the arrow fly; it struck the creature in the side. The massive demon worm writhed in agony, undulating as it swept its great, blind head from side to side, uprooting shrubbery with its thrashings. Leaves filled the air and the boys choked on dust, Gideon backing up with his seraph blade in his hand, trying to see by its light.“It’s coming toward us,” he said in a low voice."And indeed it was, the arrow still protruding from its wet, grayish skin, humping its body along with incredible speed. A flick of its tail caught the edge of a statue, sending it flying into the dry ornamental pool, where it shattered into dust.“By the Angel, it just crushed Sophocles,” noted Will. “Has no one respect for the classics these days?”
And the gold of her ruined wedding dress.
“A very magnanimous statement, Gideon,” said Magnus.“I’m Gabriel.”Magnus waved a hand. “All Lightwoods look the same to me.”
What do you think? We have a ruined wedding dress, Jem asking Will something important, Magnus being his awesome self and of course even when Will is in trouble he can come up with witty remarks. What are your predictions? If you want to know mine feel free to ask :)
