Cassandra Clare posted a snippet of the third issue of The Bane Chronicles via her tumblr page.
“I was very stupid,” Edmund said, almost violently. “I thought of love as a game. It is not a game. It is more serious than death. Without Linette, I might as well be dead.”“You speak of giving up your Shadowhunter nature,” said Magnus softly. “One can give up many things for love, but one should not give up oneself.”“Is that so, Bane?” Edmund whirled on him. “I was born to be a warrior, and I was born to be with her. Tell me how to reconcile the two, because I cannot!”Based on the snippet our fanfiction lives are yet filled with another Herondale. Best family tree, don't you agree? Poor Edmund has lost his true love, Linette.
