6 Awesome Cassie Clare Works Outside the Original Mortal Instruments Series
The world of Shadowhunters is bigger than you may’ve realized.
While it’s no secret that Freeform’s hit drama, Shadowhunters, is based on Cassandra Clare‘s book series, The Mortal Instruments, it’s less known that Cassie created entire realms outside the OG six books (City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, City of Fallen Angels, City of Lost Souls and City of Heavenly Fire).
Did you know that CC has a prequel trilogy coming out next year? ’cause she does. It’s titled The Last Hours, and it’s set in set in Edwardian London and fin de siècle Paris 1903… but that’s not even the first spin-off of The Mortal Instruments; far from it, actually. TLH is the FOURTH series to be published in The Shadowhunter Chronicles (second chronologically). That Cassie Clare sure has gone to WORK.
Whether or not you’re a TMI fanatic, here are six awesome Cassie Clare series, fanfictions, novellas, etc. outside the original Mortal Instruments collection:
The Infernal Devices
In between City of Glass and City of Fallen Angels — the third and fourth novels in the Mortal Instruments book series — fans of Cassie Clare got to experience a whole different era in the world of Shadowhunters, courtesy of the first book in the Infernal Devices series, Clockwork Angel.
In the prequel trilogy, you meet some of your favorite characters' ancestors, like Will Herondale (bet you recognize that last name, huh?), as well as read up on your old favorites, like Magnus Bane and Camille Belcourt.
The entirety of the collection — Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince & Clockwork Princess — is already published, so GET. ON. IT.
