Chain of Iron: Exclusive Postcard Art Reveal (+ Giveaway)

February 2, 2021

I am so, so, so excited to be sharing this post with all of you today! In collaboration with and with my gratitude to the team over at Simon Teen, I have the honor of revealing not one, not two, but four post cards illustrated by artist Cassandra Jean and inspired by Chain of Iron, the second book in Cassandra Clare's series The Last Hours (and one of my most anticipated releases for 2021, out specifically on March 2).

Chain of Gold was one of my favorite 2020 reads, and I've been dying to read the sequel ever since I finished it for the first time! In case you haven't heard of this series or have yet to read the first book, you can find out more about it in the dedicated book review I did for it. Otherwise, I'll be sharing more information about the sequel Chain of Iron, exclusively revealing the four new postcards and giving five (5) lucky winners (US addresses only, I'm afraid) the chance to acquire a full set of the four prints of their very own.


The Shadowhunters must catch a killer in Edwardian London in this dangerous and romantic sequel to the #1 New York Times bestselling novel Chain of Gold, from New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Cassandra Clare. Chain of Iron is a Shadowhunters novel.

Cordelia Carstairs seems to have everything she ever wanted. She’s engaged to marry James Herondale, the boy she has loved since childhood. She has a new life in London with her best friend Lucie Herondale and James’s charming companions, the Merry Thieves. She is about to be reunited with her beloved father. And she bears the sword Cortana, a legendary hero’s blade.

But the truth is far grimmer. James and Cordelia’s marriage is a lie, arranged to save Cordelia’s reputation. James is in love with the mysterious Grace Blackthorn whose brother, Jesse, died years ago in a terrible accident. Cortana burns Cordelia’s hand when she touches it, while her father has grown bitter and angry. And a serial murderer is targeting the Shadowhunters of London, killing under cover of darkness, then vanishing without a trace.

Together with the Merry Thieves, Cordelia, James, and Lucie must follow the trail of the knife-wielding killer through the city’s most dangerous streets. All the while, each is keeping a shocking secret: Lucie, that she plans to raise Jesse from the dead; Cordelia, that she has sworn a dangerous oath of loyalty to a mysterious power; and James, that he is being drawn further each night into the dark web of his grandfather, the arch-demon Belial. And that he himself may be the killer they seek.

Chain of Iron (The Last Hours #2) by Cassandra Clare is out March 2, 2021.

I'm truly honored to be revealing these four new postcards for Chain of Iron, illustrated by Cassandra Jean (who has done so much incredible art for the Shadowhunters universe). I'm really excited to find out exactly what moments are depicted, and also stunned at how striking these characters I do so love and care for look! The first one is my favorite, though I do love them all. Again, all art is attributed to the incredibly gifted Cassandra Jean. (You can find more of her work here!)






I'm seriously so excited about this new art, and I hope you are too! I'm also dying to know just what is going on for this generation of Shadowhunters (who I love very dearly), so thank goodness we only have a month more to go before the book is finally out! And now, the moment you've all been waiting for! As mentioned, thanks to Simon Teen, I have the opportunity to give away five (5) sets of these four new postcard prints today. This is only open to US addresses, and all you have to do is enter via the Rafflecopter form below.
