So I just got back from London and guess what I did there…
I went to a Holly Black and Cassandra Clare event for their new book: The Iron Trial. IT WAS AMAZING!
They started with a presentation of a few pictures of Holly and Cassie on tour and things, then started talking about how they got the ideas for the book. Cassie said she was reading Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan at the time, and wanted to write a book that followed a character as he/she grew up.
Then there was a Q&A session, and the first question was: “How did Jace know to bring a condom to the Edom?” and the entire room filled with laughter. Cassie answered with: “I wanted to include my explanation as to why he had one with him, but it sounded so dumb! So I figured that Jace was the kind of person who would have one with him at all times, right? I mean, nobody will enter the demon realm, take a condom out of their pocket and go ‘oh! Don’t need this!’. It was either that, or he stole it from Alec. After all, they were there to rescue Magnus!”
After the Q&A there was a signing in which Holly and Cassie signed two books per person. It was great!
Below are all the pictures I took in chronological order.
I hope you enjoyed looking at all the pictures from the trip!
