The Last Hours will also be a trilogy :
–Chain Of Thorns
-Chain of Gold
-Chain of Iron
This is the synopsis for The Dark Artifices:
Los Angeles, 2012. It’s been five years since the events of the Mortal Instruments when Nephilim stood poised on the brink of oblivion and Shadowhunter Emma Carstairs lost her parents. After the blood and violence she witnessed as a child, Emma has dedicated her life to the eradication of demons and being the best, fastest and deadliest Shadowhunter since Jace Lightwood. Raised in the Los Angeles Institute, Emma is paired as a parabatai with her best friend, Julian. As Emma hunts those who caused the death of her parents, the trail they’re following leads back to those they’ve always been taught to trust. At the same time, Emma is falling in love with Julian — her closest friend and, because he is her parabatai, the one person in the world she’s absolutely forbidden by Shadowhunter Law to love. Set against the glittering backdrop of present-day Los Angeles, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches from the warlock-run nightclubs of the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica.
I put “Since Jace Lightwood” in Bold on purpose. Okay a lot of people have come to the conclusion that Jace will die solemnly on that fact. Okay so the since could mean a lot of things, not just that he’s dead. Okay yes we can just say that I’m in denial, but I just believe from the bottom of my heart, that Jace cannot die. I know he basically already died once in the “supposed to be final book” City Of Glass, but I still don’t think he will die, or I really hope he doesn’t. Reading this got me to thinking, what if Cassandra pulls a Clockwork Princess on us and does kill him saying that “the dream for The Mortal Instruments started with Simon and Clary and ended with Simon and Clary” I will literally poke my eyes out omg. What if all along she has been team Simon and she kills off both Izzy and Jace so that Clary and Simon can happen. I really don’t believe that, but if it does happen I will not be a happy reader. I’ve already said what I think will happen in my ” COHF Theories post” and I will update it as i get new theories, but in that I say that Im pretty sure Alec will die. I don’t think its gonna be Magnus because though he is old and has seen a lot and did say he was thinking about becoming mortal for Alec in CoLS I don’t think he’ll die because there’s two more series surrounding this whole Shadow World and granted one of them is in the past, but still obviously Magnus will be in it, but it would be hard to write about someone you already know is dead, i think it’d be heartbreaking, and as for TDA he just has to be in there, he started this whole journey with Will and Tessa and Jem and so it seems fit he ends it with their descendants in TDA (since it will be the last book wrapping up the Shadow World) yes TLH comes out after it, but it takes place after TLH so therefore it’s the last one. Anyways I just wanted to talk about that specific line and Jace dying,
Leave your thoughts on this whole dilemma down in the comments (: xx
