City of Fallen Angels Teaser

Cassandra Clare has given us another teaser from City of Fallen Angels (I believe she posts these monthly.. so as soon as I get them via twitter I will post them in SVC for everyone to see!)

Side note: this teaser is not a spoiler, but will make more sense to those who have read Clockwork Angel ;-)

"Camille,” Magnus said. “It’s been a long time, hasn’t it?”
She smiled. Her skin looked whiter than he recalled, and dark spidery veins were beginning to show beneath its surface. Her hair was still the color of spun silver and her eyes were still green as a cat’s. She was still beautiful. Looking at her, he was in London again. He saw the gaslight and smelled the smoke and dirt and horses, the metallic tang of fog, the flowers in Kew Gardens. He saw a boy with black hair and blue eyes like Alec’s, heard violin music like the sound of silver water. He saw a girl with long brown hair and a serious face. In a world where everything went away from him eventually, she was one of the few remaining constants.
And then there was Camille.
“I’ve missed you, Magnus,” she said.

2 enjoyed the bouquet.:
