There are some mild spoilers here, though nothing really if you’ve read Every Exquisite Thing.

matthew-fairchild-owns-my-soul said:Are we going to be able to see Anna and Ariadne’s relationship develop further in Chain of Iron and more of Anna’s feelings towards Ariadne, and Anna possibly opening her heart up like she was scared to do for so long? I loved Chain of Gold and I just have so much love for Anna and Ariadne…
Anna was fortress-surrounded by her friends: tall, handsome Thomas; Christopher, who shared his sister’s stern delicacy of feature, peacock Matthew, who always looked as if he’d just rolled out of an unmade bed piled with silks and velvet. And Eugenia Lightwood, who hadn’t bothered to take off her canary-yellow gloves or hat, as if she were ready to run out the door any moment.
They all eyed Ariadne suspiciously as she approached Anna. Anna didn’t seem to see her at all; she was leaning back with one booted foot braced on the wall behind her. She was all lean black and white lines, her close-fitting jacket following the outline of her slim curves, her head thrown back as she laughed. Her ruby pendant glimmered in the hollow of her throat.
Keep your head up, Ariadne, she told herself. You can do this.

about the fake engagement by his sister or is someone else *coff coff* Thomas *coff coff* gonna tell him? Or maybe he finds out on his own? Thanks for everything you do, love you xx
That would be a dick move on Thomas’ part, so let’s hope not! Alastair is well aware of James’ feeling for Grace — he’s mentioned them more than once — and while he doesn’t have the whole picture, he has a sense that things between James and Cordelia are not simple. The whole story is certainly very complex and alarming, and he’ll need to learn it eventually, but this is a story about keeping secrets….
When Simon is kidnapped by faeries, he uncovers rumors of a weapon Sebastian left behind for the Queen. He must escape the Fey, relying on his only ally, former Shadowhunter and Dark Artifices character Mark Blackthorn.
