My Book Boyfriend: Will Herondale
Wednesday February 1, 2012 at 12:05 am |

Though he has some very assholish ways I couldn’t help but be charmed by his humor, snark, and the subtle hints to the caring person hiding behind that snark.  I feel like Will has the potential to be a great man and am making him my book boyfriend this week in honor of the potential.

Will Herondale Profile:

  • Seventeen years old
  • Slim long-fingered hands
  • Tangled black hair
  • Eyes like blue glass
  • Elegant cheekbones
  • Full mouth
  • Long thick eyelashes
  • Nephilium warrior
  • Shadowhunter
  • Half Angel, Half Human
  • Best friend is fellow Shadowhunter Jem


 I have mastered many things in my life. Navigating the streets of London, speaking French without an accent, dancing the quadrille, the Japanese art of flower arranging, lying at charades, concealing a highly intoxicated state, delighting young women with my charms…”

Tessa stared.

“Alas,” he went on, “no one has ever actually referred to me as ‘the master,’ or ‘the magister,’ either. More’s the pity…”

“They’re still looking at him…. At Will…”
“Of course they are…. Look at him. The face of a bad angel and eyes like the night sky in Hell.”

 “The handsome young fellow who’s trying to rescue you from a hideous fate is never wrong. Not even if he says the sky is purple and made of hedgehogs. –

 “He took her by the shoulders and pulled her closer to him, his fingers knotting in the fabric of her dress. Even more than in the attic, she felt caught in the eddy of a powerful wave that threatened to pull her over and under, to crush and break her, to wear her down to softness as the sea might wear down a piece of glass.”

“She looked up at him with a smile. The smile broke what was left of his resistance-shattered it. He had let the walls down when he’d thought she was gone, and there was no time to build them back up. Helplessly he pulled her against him. For a moment she clung to him tightly, warm and alive in his arms. Her hair brushed his cheek. The color had come back into the world; he could breathe again, and for that moment he breathed her in-she smelled of salt, blood, tears, and Tessa.”




My Will Herondale is being played by Hayden Christiansen.  He’s such a cutie and his profile reminded me most of the model on the cover of Clockwork Angel.  The eyes aren’t an exact match, but the profile struck me too much to pass him up.
