Last Hours: Chain of Gold – Cassandra Clare


The Shadowhunters series is not my favorite, I’ll be honest Jace & Clary are a little too perfect and it’s a little too much insta-love for me. But some of the secondary characters are
awesome as is the plot so that’s what kept me reading! The prequel ‘The Infernal Devices’ cemented Cassandra Clare as a fantasy Queen, it’s set in Victorian London,it’s action
packed and full of twists and turns, they’re fighting demons wearing corsets and waistcoats!

Chain of Gold is based around the children of the characters in that trilogy and is a gorgeous looking book! This is the perfect lockdown read for me as it was total escapism, who doesn’t
want to be living in the past right now? There are new characters, old favorites returning,intrigue,betrayal,romance, I loved every word, tears, laughter and lots of other
emotions I cannot even name! The action starts from the first word and doesn’t stop throughout. I must admit I did reread The Infernal Devices so I remembered who was who
but it’s not like I don’t have the time!
Happy Reading

First print edition contains special content, including bonus art and a new short story! From #1 New York Times bestselling author Cassandra Clare comes the first novel in a brand new trilogy where evil hides in plain sight and love cuts deeper than any blade. Chain of Gold is a Shadowhunters novel. Cordelia Carstairs is a Shadowhunter, a warrior trained since childhood to battle demons. When her father is accused of a terrible crime, she and her brother travel to Edwardian London in the hope of preventing the family’s ruin. Cordelia’s mother wants to marry her off, but Cordelia is determined to be a hero rather than a bride. Soon Cordelia encounters childhood friends James and Lucie Herondale and is drawn into their world of glittering ballrooms, secret assignations and supernatural salons, where vampires and warlocks mingle with mermaids and magicians. All the while, she must hide her secret love for James, who is sworn to marry someone else. But Cordelia’s new life is blown apart when a shocking series of demon attacks devastate London. These monsters are nothing like those the Shadowhunters have fought before – these demons walk in daylight, strike down the unwary with incurable poison and seem impossible to kill. London is immediately quarantined. Trapped in the city, Cordelia and her friends discover that their own connection to a dark legacy has gifted them with incredible powers – and force a brutal choice that will reveal the true cruel price of being a hero.
