Cassandra Clare Releases A New Series

The big news today is the announcement of Cassandra Clare's Lady MIdnight, the first book of a new Shadowhunters novel, available March 2016 .


It’s been five years since the events of City of Heavenly Fire that brought the Shadowhunters to the brink of oblivion. Emma Carstairs is no longer a child in mourning, but a young woman bent on discovering what killed her parents and avenging her losses.

Together with her parabatai Julian Blackthorn, Emma must learn to trust her head and her heart as she investigates a demonic plot that stretches across Los Angeles, from the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica. If only her heart didn’t lead her in treacherous directions . . .

Making things even more complicated, Julian’s brother Mark—who was captured by the faeries five years ago―has been returned as a bargaining chip. The faeries are desperate to find out who is murdering their kind―and they need the Shadowhunters’ help to do it. But time works differently in faerie, so Mark has barely aged and doesn’t recognize his
family. Can he ever truly return to them? Will the faeries really allow it?

Glitz, glamours, and Shadowhunters abound in this heartrending opening to Cassandra Clare’s Dark Artifices series.

Twain's End

Lynn Cullen’s masterful novel, Twain’s End, retells the last years of the great writer’s life and addresses the questions surrounding the relationship he had with his secretary at the time, Isabel Lyon.  For them, I tinkered with a Whiskey Cocktail and put a great head on its shoulders.  

The foam?  Why yes, it is supposed to remind you of someone. 

Twain’s End
2 oz Bourbon
.25 oz simple syrup
1 dash Abbott’s Original Bitters
1 dash Bad Dog Sarsaparilla Dry Bitters
Shake all vigorously with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Top with Twain’s Foam.

Twain’s Foam
1 egg white
.5 oz lemon juice
2-3 teaspoons sugar
Beat the egg white on low speed until the air bubbles decrease and turn white.
Add lemon juice. Increase speed to medium and slowly add the sugar.
Continue whipping until everything is fluffy, glossy, and firm.
Add the bitters and whip just a bit more.
