They stated two series and one stand-alone book (that didn’t make The Wrap’s list) that they believe have the potential to be the next “mega hit.”
And you guessed it, The Mortal Instruments made the list:
THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS SERIES BY CASSIE CLARE
Cassie Clare was recently named the “New Queen of Fantasy.” She has earned the title by working hard at her craft and creating a strong series of books in the shadow hunting world. She not only has the Mortal instrument series but a prequel, The Infernal Devices, as well as a planned companion series in The Dark Artifices. Cassie seems to have no interest in slowing down, which keeps her books on the bestselling lists and her fans constantly begging for more. Cassie Clare has built a fan base for years and is active on twitter, tumblr, and her website. She fuels the fires of fandom in a way that keeps people talking about her books even if one is’t expected for another 8 months.
Also making the list were Divergent by Veronica Roth and The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
