Cassandra Clare has signed to write “The Dark Artifices” Trilogy

Despite The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devicesset to come to a close in the next couple of years, bestselling author Cassandra Clare won’t be saying goodbye to her Shadowhunter world just yet.

Clare has signed a three-book deal with Simon & Schuster to write The Dark Artifices, a spinoff series set in 2012 Los Angeles.

Yay! Here’s part of the announcement from The Washington Post!

“The series follows Emma Carstairs, the fiercest warrior and most skilled young Shadowhunter since Jace Wayland, and Emma’s sworn partner in arms, Julian Blackthorn,” the statement reads. “Despite Emma’s complicated feelings for Julian, the two must band together to investigate a demonic plot that stretches from the warlock-run nightclubs of the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica.”

Clare said in a statement that she was sure readers would love both her new and her established characters.

“I know readers will come to love Emma, Mark, Cristina and Julian just as they have loved Jace, Clary, Will, Tessa and Jem,” she said. “Readers have often asked what will happen in the Shadowhunter world after the events of the ‘Mortal Instruments’ and this series will give them a chance to find out.”

Finally we know it’s really going to happen! Cassie has been teasing us, but there’s the confirmation! Excited? Shadowhunters shall live on!

  1. It will – of course – be amazing, but I cant help but think that Cassandra is playing it quite safe with going for another shadowhunter series. ID worked because it was set in a very different time, but this sounds like it will happen within a few years of TMI. Although – don’t get me wrong – this is great news and I am really exited for it!

    • Yes, I see what you’re saying :/ I dunno, Cassie’s just found what she likes and is sticking with it. Who knows? Maybe in the future she’ll come out with a series completely different than TMI, without Shadowhunters. 😀
