Cassandra Clare



Clary Fray is a Shadowhunter — a member of a secret society of demon hunters. Take that fraught premise and toss in some vampires, werewolves, warlocks, faeries, and a teenage love triangle, and you’ve got the general idea. With a movie version of the series in the works, now’s the time to jump on the bandwagon. Start with City of Bones and prepare to be hooked!Entertainment Weekly

Hi! I’m Cassandra Clare. I write urban fantasy novels for young adults centering on the adventures of the part-angel demon-fighting Nephilim (also called Shadowhunters). My first series, set in New York, is called The Mortal Instruments. It’s a six-book series starting with City of Bones, followed by City of AshesCity of Glass, City of Fallen Angels and City of Lost Souls. The sixth book, City of Heavenly Fire, will be released in May, 2014. My second series is The Infernal Devices, set in Victorian London: Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince,and Clockwork Princess (released March 19, 2013.)  And the third Shadowhunters series is The Dark Artifices, set in Los Angeles, centering on the characters Julian Blackthorn and Emma Carstairs from City of Heavenly Fire, five years after the events of that book.

I’m also co-writing a contemporary fantasy centering around the adventures of a young magician called Callum Hunt, with Holly Black. The first book, The Iron Trial, will be released September 9, 2014.

In the long-awaited conclusion to the acclaimed Mortal Instruments series, Clary and her friends fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary’s own brother.

Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Dark Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures out of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.

The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris  — but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Idris, who will guard the world against demons?

When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee — even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned . . .

Love will be sacrificed and lives lost in the terrible battle for the fate of the world in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy series The Mortal Instruments!
