The highly anticipated second instalment of the Eldest Curses series takes High Warlock Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood on a new adventure as they go on a death-defying mission.
Life is good for Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood. They’re living together in a fabulous loft, their warlock son, Max, has started learning to walk, and the streets of New York are peaceful and quiet—as peaceful and quiet as they ever are, anyway.
Until the night that two old acquaintances break into Magnus’s apartment and steal the powerful Book of the White. Now Magnus and Alec will have to drop everything to get it back. They need to follow the thieves to Shanghai, they need to call some backup to accompany them, and they need a babysitter.
Also, someone has stabbed Magnus with a strange magical weapon and the wound is glowing, so they have that to worry about too.
Fortunately, their backup consists of Clary, Jace, Isabelle, and newly minted Shadowhunter Simon. In Shanghai, they learn that a much darker threat awaits them. Magnus’s magic is growing unstable, and if they can’t stop the demons flooding into the city, they might have to follow them all the way back to the source—to the very realm of the dead. Can they stop the threat to the world? Will they make it back home before their kid completely wears out Alec’s mom?
The Lost Book of the White is due to come out on September 1st, 2020, and is being published by Simon & Schuster. You can pre-order your copy of this emotionally charged book – you don’t want to miss it.
Clare recently shared the new reversible cover of the book with her fans on Twitter. She posted:
Remember when I revealed the cover for The Lost Book of the White and told you that the dust jacket will be REVERSIBLE? @simonteen made a video so you can see just what that will look like!
