Here are the top moments from Chain of Iron that delighted (and sometimes stressed) us!

Top 11 Chain of Iron Moments

11. Thomas is Questioned with the Mortal Sword

“Is Gideon aware that he still owes me twenty pounds?” (Will)

“Yes,” said Thomas, without being able to stop himself, “but he is pretending not to remember.”


10. Will and Tessa are Adorable 

“Did you know, you grow more beautiful every day?” (Will) 

“Well, that’s odd, because as a warlock I do not age, and so I should look the same day to day…” (Tessa) 

 “And yet, you continue to accrue radiance.” 


9. Anna and Ariadne in the Whispering Room

This was what [Ariadne] was living for, every long, dark winter day as she waited to see if the invitation from Anna would come in the evening. The folded piece of paper slipped through her window, the message scrawled in Anna’s strong, elegant hand.  

Meet me in the Whispering Room.  


8. James’ Bracelet (Finally!!) Breaks

He turned the bracelet over in his hand and said, “Daisy, I think—”  

His head snapped back. She saw his eyes—fully black, the whites gone utterly—as he spasmed once and crumpled, motionless, to the floor.  


7. Matthew Admits His Love for Cordelia 

“Love is not always a lightning bolt, is it? Sometimes it is a creeping vine. It grows slowly until suddenly it is all that there is in the world.” 


6. Alastair and Thomas in the Sanctuary 

Alastair’s lips touched his—gently, at first, but with growing confidence, he explored Thomas’s mouth, and it was like flying, like nothing Thomas had ever imagined. 


5. Lucie Commands Jesse to Live 

His lips parted, his eyes widening. “Lucie.” 
She sank to her knees. Oh, you’re alive, you’re alive, she wanted to say, but there was not enough strength in her to form the words. The world had begun to blur at the edges. Darkness was creeping in around her.  


4. Cordelia Discovers She’s Lilith’s Paladin

“Foolish child,” said Lilith. “You are mine. And while Belial, in his new form, might have been able to defeat a bearer of Cortana, he cannot defeat one who is my paladin.”  


3. James Confronts Grace 

“So that is why you came to London?” he spat. “To tighten my leash? Grace, why? I know your mother is mad, twisted by grief and spite. But why would she go to these elaborate lengths to make me think I loved you?” 


2. James Sees Cordelia and Matthew Leave for Paris 

“You will forgive me if I say that you don’t look like someone whose wife just left for a pleasant trip to Paris,” said Magnus. “You look like someone who just had his heart kicked out on a train station platform.” 


1. James (Finally!!) Realizes He Loves Cordelia 

“I was fourteen—” (James) 

“All you would talk about was Cordelia. How she talked, how she walked, how she read to you when you were ill. The color of her eyes, her hair.” (Grace) 

James could hear his heartbeat, thudding in his ears.  

He had already loved her then.

Top 10 Chain of Gold Moments

10. Magnus Bane (His mere presence is enough to make this list)

[to James]

“Last time I saw you, you were facedownin the Serpentine,” Magnus said cheerfully. “Now you’re fiddling with a Pyxis. I see you have decided to follow in the long Herondale tradition of poor decision-making.”


9. Thomas and Alastair meet in Paris

Thomas told Alastair that he planned to get a tattoo of a compass rose on the inside of his arm.He hadn’t told anyone else that, and Alastair seemed curious.

“Where on your arm?” he asked, and when Thomas showed him, Alastair ran his fingers over the spot, unselfconsciously, his fingertips tracing a path from the sensitive skin of Thomas’s inner wrist to the crook of his elbow.

Thomas sat stunned and shivering…


8. Lucie (and a bunch of ghosts) save Cordelia from drowning

“Bring her out, please!” Lucie screamed. “Help me!”

Ghosts rose up on either side…a veritable army of the drowned and dead. In the center of them all, the ghost prisoner held Cordelia, her body limp, her bright hair soaked and streaming down over her shoulders.


7. Cordelia uses Cortana to save James in the other realm

This is a blade that can cut through anything…

She whipped Cortana forward, angled toward the archway as if it were so much paper she could slice through.

There was the sound of something shattering as Cortana drove through the barrier between this world and the next.


6. Thomas and Alastair complete Christopher’s antidote 

Thomas cleared his throat. “Someone once told me that we need to stand back and let people do what they’re good at, and Christopher is good at this. I have faith in him. This antidote will work.”

Charles merely looked puzzled, but Thomas hadn’t said it for Charles. He looked at Alastair…


5. Cordelia dances with Cortana in the Hell Ruelle

Everyone in the room was looking at her as her body bent backward and her hair swept from side to side, an arc of fire. Her brown skin glowed; perspiration glimmered on her collarbones. James’s blood was pounding through his body like a river through a broken dam.


4. Jesse gives James his last breath

Lucie reached out her hand. It closed around the locket, and she felt it tumble into her palm, cool and solid. For a moment she hesitated—just for a moment, her eyes fixed on Jesse, kneeling in the grass.


3. Cordelia lies to protect James

“James cannot have been in Idris. He was with me. In my bedroom. All night.”


2. James insists on marrying Cordelia

“I can ask one last thing of you,” [James] said. “One last sacrifice for me.”

Since it might be the last time she ever saw him, Cordelia let her eyes linger on James’s face. The curve of his mouth, the arch of his high cheekbones, the long lashes that shadowed his pale gold eyes…“

What?” Cordelia said. “If it is in my power, I will do it…”

“Daisy,” he said. “Will you marry me?”


1. James and Cordelia kiss in the Whispering Room

[James] deepened the kiss, suddenly, as if he couldn’t help himself. He leaned into it, into her, his tongue tracing the shape of her mouth, making her shudder.
