Teaser Tuesday!

Courtesy Of

I came across thee most PERFECT teasers for this Tuesday! I hope you're all anticipating this one as much as I am!

Here are teasers from City of Lost Souls, which will be released on May 8, 2012, posted by Cassandra Clare:
Teaser #1:
“Magnus made a soft, pleased sound, and he gripped the back of Alec’s shirt.”
Teaser #2:
“He is a Shadowhunter,” said Jocelyn. “His loyalty will be to Clave and Covenant.”
“He’s my friend,” said Magnus coldly. “His loyalty is to me.”
Teaser #3:
“You stole a boat,” she snapped. “What am I doing with you, you boat-stealing lunatic?”
Teaser #4:
“Sebastian never does anything just for fun.” Jace took Clary’s hand and pulled her toward him. “But I do.”
Teaser #5:
“Is he happy like this? Really happy? And if he is, what are you saving him from?”
Teaser #6:
“Well, hello there, Mother,” Sebastian said in a voice like silk. “Surprised to see me?”
Teaser #7:
“You think I’m gone, but I’m not. I’m still watching you. All of you. Especially you … Simon.”
Teaser #8:
“I need Jace,” said Sebastian. “But in his heart, he’s not like me. But *you * are.”
Teaser #9:
“You’re a Lightwood,” she said. “Your family never gives up. I knew you wouldn’t let what I said to you that night well enough alone.”
Teaser #10:
“You have a dark heart in you, Valentine’s daughter,” he said. “You just won’t admit it. And if you want Jace, you had better accept it. Because he belongs to me now.”
Teaser #11:
“I don’t do false reassurances,” Izzy said, and pushed the tequila bottle away from her. Her eyes, on Jordan, were lively and dark. “Come here, werewolf boy.”
Teaser #12:
“I never cared,” he said. “I wanted you anyway. I always wanted you.” – Jace
Teaser #13:
“He reached her and held his hands out; she took them, and let him pull her to her feet. His pale gold eyes searched her face. “I want you with me,” he said. “But I want it to be your choice. Once we go, there’s no coming back.”
Teaser #14:
“I know about parabatai,” said Magnus, an angry, dark undercurrent to his voice. “I’ve known parabatai so close they were almost the same person; do you know what happens, when one of them dies, to the one that’s left —?”
Teaser #15:
“Don’t take this the wrong way, but you smell like Magnus.”
Teaser #16:
“Warlock,” he said. “I know who you are.”
Magnus raised his eyebrows. “You do?”
“Magnus Bane. Destroyer of the demon Marabas. Son of——”
“Now,” said Magnus, quickly. “There’s no need to go into all of that.”
“But there is.” The demon sounded reasonable, even amused. “If it is infernal assistance you require, why not summon your father?”
Alec looked at Magnus with his mouth open.
Teaser #17:
“Every time we see each other we fall into bed — and I know I started it, I’m not blaming you— it’s just that maybe we should *talk*.”
Teaser #18:
“That’s how faeries work, they don’t do favors.”
Teaser #19:
“Alec isn’t happy,” said Magnus, as if she hadn’t spoken.
“Of course he isn’t,” Isabelle snapped. “Jace —”
“Jace,” said Magnus, and his hands made fists at his sides. Isabelle stared at him. She had always thought that he didn’t mind Jace; liked him, even, once the question of Alec’s affections had been settled. Out loud, she said:
“I thought you were friends.”
“It’s not that,” said Magnus. “There are some people — people the universe seems to have singled out for special destinies. Special favors and special torments. God knows we’re all drawn toward what’s beautiful and broken; I have been, but some people cannot be fixed. Or if they can be, it’s only by love and sacrifice so great it destroys the giver.”
Isabelle shook her head slowly. “You’ve lost me. Jace is our brother, but for Alec — he’s Jace’s parabatai too —”
“I know about parabatai,” said Magnus, his voice rising in pitch. “I’ve known parabatai so close they were almost the same person; do you know what happens, when one of them dies, to the one that’s left —”
“Stop it!” Isabelle clapped her hands over her ears, then lowered them slowly. “How dare you, Magnus Bane,” she said.
“How dare you make this worse than it is —”
“Isabelle.” Magnus’ hands loosened; he looked a little wide-eyed, as if his outburst had startled even him. “I am sorry. I forget, sometimes . . . that with all your self-control and strength, you possess the same vulnerability that Alec does.”
“There is nothing weak about Alec,” said Isabelle.
“No,” said Magnus. “To love as you choose, that takes strength. The thing is, I wanted you here for him. There are things I can’t do for him, can’t give him . . .” For a moment Magnus looked oddly vulnerable. “You have known Jace as long as he has. You can give him understanding I can’t. And he loves you.”
“Of course he loves me. I’m his sister.”
“Blood isn’t love,” said Magnus, and his voice was bitter. “Just ask Clary.”
Teaser #20:
“As far as I’m concerned, this is the worst thing that’s happened since I found out why Magnus was banned from Peru.” — Jace
Teaser #21:
Alec quickly stripped down to his boxers and climbed into bed, hoping not to wake Magnus. However…
Teaser #22:
“Simon, I’ve been trying to call you but it seems like your phone is turned off. I don’t…”
Teaser #23:
“Why did you?” Clary asked.
“Why did I what?”
“Help me back there.”
“You’re my sister.”
She swallowed. In the morning light, Sebastian’s face had some color in it. There were faint burns along his neck where demon ichor had splashed him.
“You never cared that I was your sister before.”
“Didn’t I?” His black eyes flicked up and down her. “Our father’s dead,” he said. “There are no other relatives. You and I, we are the last. The last of the Morgensterns. You are the only one left whose blood runs in my veins, too. You are my last chance.”
Teaser #24:
“Kill me, little sister. Kill me and you kill Jace, too.”
Teaser #25:
“Tell me,” Isabelle said.“Who it was. That my father had the affair with.”

Oh YEAH! SOOOOOOO CANNOT WAIT!!!! What do you think of the tasty tid bits? Let me know.
