Cassandra Clare Plans Fifth Shadowhunter Series
Yes she is planing to write a fifth Shadowhunter series, which she referred to only as TWP. She listed all her series in what seems to be the internally chronological order:
“The five Shadowhunter series are TiD, TLH, TMI, TDA, and very far down the road, TWP. Don’t even ask about that one! It’s too far in the future!” (Clare’s Tumblr)
For fans who may not be familiar, the series referred to are The Infernal Devices (a recently completed prequel trilogy), TLH (we only know that it follows the next generation after The Infernal Devices), The Mortal Instruments (the six books that started it all, with the final book “City of Heavenly Fire” coming out next March), The Dark Artifices (trilogy set 5 years after TMI, with Book 1 – “Lady Midnight” – due in 2015), and now TWP.
Keeping in mind how many of these books Clare has yet to write, we won’t see nor hear of TWP for at least another six years; if Clare takes a year per book as usual, then not until 2021. That is quite a long time but I am sure that fans will hear more details about this new series much before 2021!
Once this fifth trilogy is complete, that will put the total number of Shadowhunter books at eighteen, not counting the Magnus Bane Chronicles, nor the Codex. Do you feel another series would be too much? Should Clare stop while she’s ahead?
