Cassandra Clare is just shooting out prequels and sequels for the Shadowhunter Chronicles! After The Mortal Instruments became such a big hit, Cassie made a prequel which takes place in the late 1800, The Infernal Devices. After TID wrapped in late march of this year Cassie has announces some new projects she will be working on which take place in the Shadowhunter world.
As of this moment we have two and a half Shadowhunter-world based book series released, which include The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, and Some of The Bane Chronicles. But that is not it… After TMI we will be getting the next Shadowhunter series, The Dark Artifices which takes place five years after TMI (2012).
Then we rewind a century for the next series to the early 1900s for TLH (series title not confirmed). In this series we will see some old faces from The Infernal Devices and some new.
But thats not all, recently we got the title of the newest series Cassandra Clare will be writing called The Wicked Power(s). Cassandra talked a bit about TWP on twitter recently.
Black for hunting through the night
For death and mourning the color’s white
Gold for a bride in her wedding gown
And red to call enchantment down.
White silk when our bodies burn,
Blue banners when the lost return.
Flame for the birth of a Nephilim,
And to wash away our sins.
Gray for knowledge best untold,
Bone for those who don’t grow old.
Saffron lights the victory march,
Green will mend our broken hearts.
Silver for the demon towers,
And bronze to summon wicked powers.
— Shadowhunter children’s rhyme
