Clockwork Prince Chapter Sampler
I had no desperate need for a Tshirt, and as cool as the chapter sampler sounded I wasn't getting in the line for it, not when there were some pretty exciting book line ups to get into (as in, complete books. Lisel and Po, Crossed and Daughter of Smoke and Bone were already forming lines). So I buggered off with a shrug of my shoulder, alas me and Clockwork Prince teasers would have to be online buddies instead.
When an hour or so later I passed through the booth to see the cover, now the crowd had dispersed, I was totally shocked to see a pile of about 10 or so chapter samplers left. I wandered over to the publicist to see if I could snag one, and ask why they weren't all gone. Turns out the line wasn't really a reading one (weird right? this was the BOOK expo of America after all), they were largely after the Tshirts, and sadder yet, a good many of them were there just because there was a line and didn't know what Clockwork Prince was!
Wednesday really was my lucky day, because I curled up to read the sampler last night and it made my night. 57 pages of super Cassie goodness, of which I desperately wish I could quote you some of. Suffice it to say I was jonesing for the rest by the end.
It looks like Jem is going to be a big part of this story, and as Cassie's teasers seem to hint, there's going to be some love triangulating. It also looks like we'll get a closer look at some of the peripheral shadowhunters from Clockwork Angel, the Lightwoods and Consul Wayland. Not to mention there was a wicked scene with Magnus which hinted a tiny bit about Will's issues. In true Cassie style, she covered a lot of ground in the three chapters given out.
I'm so smitten I might just wish away my summer in anticipation of Clockwork Prince's December 6th release.
