Not behind a cut tag because these questions don’t really contain any actual spoilers for CoLS, but be warned anyway.
ramblingsofatotallunatic asked you:
Ms. Clare, I just finished COLS & I loved it. To me, I’m so glad you decided to continue the series & not end it after the 3rd book. I just feel an end coming that’s more satisfying & I’m very excited! Now, this isn’t a question & I expect no reply. I wanna say, I’ve seen the questions & comments speculating Brother Z. is Will & never understood where they were coming from, but after COLS, I totally do, now. But, I think it’s possible he could be Jem?
everynightandeveryday asked you:
I dont know if im the only one who is wondering this but is Brother Zachariah Will?
mydearwatson89 asked you:
Hello, I just wanted to say I loved City of Lost Soul. My question is, will we figure out why Brother Zachariah is so worried about Jace and who Zachariah was before becoming a Silent Brother?
itsdestini asked you:
So Cassie, I was wondering are we going to find out who Brother Zachariah is in Clockwork Princess OR City Of Heavenly Fire?
jomosmojo asked you: The one question I really have a NEED to know, is who is Brother Zachariah really, or Will we ever get that question answered in City of Heavenly Fire?
Well, you can read my earlier post here about Brother Zachariah, and then a bit more below:
I like these asks because they’re not like “Who is Brother Zachariah” so much as “Will we ever find out who he is, dammit?” That’s right. I’ve beaten you down into lower expectations. :)
Obviously Brother Zach has some lurking importance. What that importance might be is deliberately obscured. There are hints, but there is also deliberately misleading information as well.
I can’t tell who he is because that would take all the fun out of everything. There are a lot of people Brother Zachariah could be. All the information to put it together might not be revealed yet. But I do promise that his identity will be known in City of Heavenly Fire or Clockwork Princess.
