The Dark Artifices

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.

Evil Cat?

This was too funny not to share!

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones teaser trailer

The Mortal Instruments teaser trailer released last November. The official movie trailer should be released this month! I can't wait for this movie to hit theaters August 23rd, and my only hope is that it doesn't get f****ed up like Twilight did....

The Clockwork Princess

We’re just one week away from the long awaited release of The Clockwork Princess, the third and final book in Cassandra Clare’s bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy.

The Infernal Devices trilogy is a prequel to Cassandra Clare’s bestselling Mortal Instruments series, which was also supposed to be a trilogy, but ended up being so widely popular that she expanded it and the sixth and final book in the series will be released in September of next year.

The Infernal Devices trilogy follows the story of Tessa Gray, a young American girl sent to live in Victorian England with her brother after her aunt’s death. Little does she know that she’s walking into a world full of darkness, betrayal, and shadowhunters.

The Host

Finally were in March and only 18 days away from the when The Host hits theaters!

I’ve been excited since I learned that they were making The Host into a movie, but it’s only been in the last week or so that my excitement went into overdrive, since it’s almost here!

For those of you that have never heard of The Host, it is a stand only novel by the best-selling author of the Twilight series, Stephanie Meyer. It’s the tale of a race of parasitic aliens that invade Earth and take over human bodies, erasing their memories (think along the lines of tale of the body snatchers) and the only way to tell if someone is human or alien is by their eyes, since the Souls (aliens) have luminous, silver circles around their pupils.

Now I know quite a few people…mostly men, who have groaned at the thought of another Stephanie Meyer book being made into a movie, but I keep having to reassure them that this isn’t Twilight! Haha! I feel that The Host is a far more well written book than Twilight with a far more interesting, if not just as captivating as Twilight, love story.

For now, I’ll just continue to wait and count down the days until this movie hits theaters, and hope that the film adaption of the book is true to its source.
