The year 2013 is shaping up to be quite an exciting year for fans of Cassandra Clare’s SHADOWHUNTER CHRONICLES with many exciting things in the works, including THE SHADOWHUNTER’S CODEX, a guide to the world of the Nephilim, which is slated for a November release.
Clare shared that THE SHADOWHUNTER’S CODEX cover will be revealed next week.
Also, next week we will be revealing the cover of the Shadowhunter’s Codex. And it’s looking pretty awesome.
Here’s some information about the Codex:
The Shadowhunters’ Codex is intended as a guide for fans to the world of Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunters series, The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices. It provides a concordance to the many fantastical creatures, places, and things of the books, but also fleshes out the world of the Shadowhunters with new details, new monsters, new runes, new magic.
The Codex is the Codex itself, a textbook for new Shadowhunters, and also notes and art added in by Clary, commenting and updating things. (For one thing, the Codex’s official take on things is often not quite the same as what Clary knows to be true. The facts it claims about warlocks alone are outrageously incorrect!) It also contains many stories not yet touched upon in the Shadowhunter novels: the story of Jonathan Shadowhunter and how the Shadowhunters came to be, the creation of the Silent Brothers, the invention ofparabatai and much more.
How excited are you to see the cover and to get your hands on the Codex in November? Sound off in the comments!
