Chain of Iron by Cassandra Clare Book Haul!

Hey guys! Normally I’d include this in a book haul post but I’m so excited to finally have this book and I couldn’t wait to share all these beautiful editions with you. As you can tell from the title, Chain of Iron by Cassandra Clare is finally here and I have my copies! Yes, that’s right, I put multiple copies because I can’t control myself and there’s so many beautiful editions of this book. I bought the collector’s first edition hardback, the exclusive Waterstones edition (to match the first and all the other exclusive editions Waterstones has done) and the UK tour edition! Unfortunately, none of these are signed but they have all the exclusive content. So here’s the pretty editions I bought:

Exclusive Waterstones edition

I have a tale to tell about this one. My first copy turned up damaged and I was devastated because I like to keep all my special editions in pristine condition. It was the back cover that was damaged and it looked like ink had leaked all over it. The material of the book had completely soaked it up and just looking at it, I knew there was no way I’d be able to get that out. It was this horrible black mark and it went all the way across the top and the bottom. Fortunately, Waterstones had kept aside some spare copies as replacements and they sorted it out really quickly for me! I’m really happy with my new copy and I’ve already added it on my bookshelf next to all the other pretty rune editions Waterstones has done. It’s stamped signed and has an exclusive short story, which is a scene from Chain of Gold written from Cordelia’s perspective.

UK tour edition

I am in love with this edition. Admittedly, when I first saw it I was disappointed and didn’t think it looked that nice. However, when it arrived my view completely changed because it’s actually stunning. I love that blue colour and the gold silhouettes. It’s so pretty! If you’re wondering, the dust jacket was the only exclusive offering for the tour. The book is exactly the same as the first editions sold elsewhere.

Here’s a full picture of the dust jacket opened out. I can’t get over how pretty it is! I hope they do more exclusive tour offerings for the UK for Cassie’s other books.

First edition hardback

Finally, we have the first edition hardback with the most beautiful cover! Like the others, this has exclusive artwork and a bonus short story. This is not exclusive to any specific retailer, they were all selling this edition. I just wanted to show a picture of the pretty artwork inside.

So these are my editions of Chain of Iron! Maybe I should do a post showing all my Cassie Clare books. I don’t have as many as most people, but I have collected all her exclusive UK editions. She’s my favourite author, how could I not? Honestly, I’m so excited to read Chain of Iron! I absolutely loved Chain of Gold and I can’t wait to see what Cassie does with the characters next. I hope it doesn’t break my heart like Lord of Shadows did. If you’ve picked this one up, happy reading! I hope you enjoy it and thank you so much for checking out my post!
