“we have been in the crucible, and come out as gold.”
“you cannot hurt yourself, daisy. you must not. hate me, hit me, do anything you want to me. cut up my suits and set fire to my books. tear my heart into pieces, scatter them across england. but do not harm yourself.”
“for there is no one else in this world, my most beautiful, maddening, adorable wife, that i could ever have loved half as much as i have loved you. my heart beats for you. only ever you.”
thomas raised his head. “alastair,” he whispered, as if alastair’s name were a talisman against pain and grief, and alastair put his arms around thomas, with a gentleness cordelia did not think she had ever seen her brother express before.
dear alastair, why are you so stupid and so frustrating, and why do i think about you all the time? why do i have to think about you when i get up and when i go to sleep and when i brush my teeth and right now? why did you kiss me in the sanctuary if you didn’t want to be with me? is it that you don’t want to tell anyone? it’s very annoying. — thomas
“look at you,” alastair said, in a low voice. “beautiful. you’re so beautiful, tom.”
anna took ari’s hand and looked down at it, as if she were marveling at its construction. “if we are all made up of different parts, then i am quite the chessboard.” ari turned anna’s hand over in hers, and then laid it over her heart. “never a chessboard,” she said. “nothing so plain. you are a brightly colored pachisi board. you’re a backgammon set with triangles of inlaid mother-of-pearl and pieces of gold and silver. you are the queen of hearts.” “and you,” anna said softly, “are the lamp that gives light, without which the game cannot be played.”

Description [ ]

Cordelia Carstairs has lost everything that matters to her. In only a few short weeks, she has seen her father murdered, her plans to become parabatai with her best friend, Lucie , destroyed, and her marriage to James Herondale crumble before her eyes. Even worse, she is now bound to an ancient demon, Lilith , stripping her of her power as a Shadowhunter .

After fleeing to Paris with Matthew Fairchild , Cordelia hopes to forget her sorrows in the city's glittering nightlife. But reality intrudes when shocking news comes from home: Tatiana Blackthorn has escaped the Adamant Citadel , and London is under new threat by the Prince of Hell , Belial .

Cordelia returns to a London riven by chaos and dissent. The long-kept secret that Belial is James and Lucie's grandfather has been revealed by an unexpected enemy, and the Herondales find themselves under suspicion of dealings with demons. Cordelia longs to protect James but is torn between a love for James she has long believed hopeless, and the possibility of a new life with Matthew. Nor can her friends help—ripped apart by their own secrets, they seem destined to face what is coming alone.

For time is short, and Belial's plan is about to crash into the Shadowhunters of London like a deadly wave, one that will separate Cordelia, Lucie, and the Merry Thieves from help of any kind. Left alone in a shadowy London, they must face Belial's deadly army. If Cordelia and her friends are going to save their city—and their families—they will have to muster their courage, swallow their pride, and trust one another again. For if they fail, they may lose everything—even their souls. [1]

Special content [ ]

  • Collector's First Edition : All first editions come with a reverse second cover on the inside of the dust jacket by Charlie Bowater , 10 interior illustrations by Alexandra Curte, and an extra short story, Aught but Death , about Cordelia and Lucie's parabatai ceremony. [2]
  • Waterstones Exclusive Edition : This special edition includes the above content and a letter from Matthew to James. It's cover features a pattern of Love runes and flowers. [3]
  • LitJoy Crate pre-order : Those who order through LitJoy's Chain of Thorns pre-order special receive an exclusive letter from Jesse to Lucie. [4] [5]
  • The title "Chain of Thorn" can be referenced to the thorns around Blackthorn Hall , though it also holds a metaphorical meaning in respect the "chains of secrecy, grief, and responsibility" that connects the characters, and is originally derived from a quote in Great Expectations . [6]
  • The roses on the cover symbolize secrecy—a major theme of the series and fitting for the revelations of secrets in this installment. [7]
  • The chapter titles, like in The Infernal Devices , are all taken from poetry of the Victorian and Edwardian era that the characters would be familiar with.
  • This book is told from several characters' points of view, namely: Cordelia, James, Lucie, Thomas, Ari, Grace, Anna, and briefly Jesse, Alastair, Brother Zachariah, and Letty Nance.
  • Cassie originally planned on the first edition's short story being the story of the found family tree , with explanations as to why it is incorrect and what the true family tree is. [8] [9]
  • The book was published nearly a year later than initially planned [10] due to Covid-19 related publishing delays [11] [12] and resulting supply chain issues. [13]
  • The series was originally meant to have a very tragic ending with numerous horrible deaths and the final scene being James on his deathbed as an old man reflecting on the best friendships of his life and seeing those friends waiting for him on the other side; [14] however, due to the pandemic, Cassie couldn't bring herself to write it in an already troubling time. [15] This change happened early on in the series' writing process so the characters are not completely the same as they would have been for said ending. [16]
  • The song Cassandra Clare listened to the most while writing was "Lilith" by Halsey. [15]
