Chain of Thorns (The Last Hours#3)
Chain of Thorns will be the third installment in a trilogy of THE LAST HOURS. It is a young adult urban fantasy novel series by Cassandra Clare.
The Last Hours is a new Shadowhunters series set in 1903. It deals with the next generation after Will, Tessa, and Jem as well as Charlotte and Henry’s children, Tatiana Blackthorn’s children, the Lightwood kids, and many more. 1903 is right around the time the Victorian era tips over into the Edwardian era — beautiful clothes, fabulous history and so much more that I’m excited to write about!
The title is taken from the book Great Expectations, of which the series is a retelling: those of you who’ve read The Midnight Heir installment of the Bane Chronicles probably have some ideas about certain of the characters!
There will be three books: Chain of Thorns, Chain of Gold, and Chain of Iron — also a reference to Great Expectations.
The first book of The Last Hours trilogy is Chain of Gold which was published on 3 March 2020, and Chain of Iron is the second book of the trilogy.
Chain of Thorns Publishing Date:
The most awaited third and final installment of The Last Hours, Chain of Thorns is set to be published on November 1st, 2022 by Walker Books.
The books will interconnect with The Dark Artifices trilogy as two separate trilogies that are also the stories of the Blackthorns, Herondales, and Carstairs, much like TMI and The Infernal Devices interconnected despite taking place in different time periods and locations.
