Cassandra Clare, author of the widely popular Mortal Instruments series and her spin-off prequel series to The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, has made plans to come out with yet another series following her race of shadowhunters.
Her new series, The Dark Artifices, set to be released in 2015, is set in LA, California five years after The Mortal Instruments took place. This new story follows Emma Carstairs, an orphaned shadowhunter, and her parabatai Julian Blackthorn as they investigate demonic plots.
Of course, Emma has romantic feelings for Julian, which can never be actualized, because it is against Clave law for parabatai to have romantic relations.
On the one hand, I'm super excited for this new series from Cassandra Clare, because I've really enjoyed The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices, but on the other hand I kind of have to wonder how many more books can be written about shadowhunters. I love shadowhunters, but honestly, I really don't see how Cassandra Clare can keep popping out series about shadowhunters and demons and have them actually be good.
