Julian watches Mark in new ‘The Dark Artifices’ snippet

Yesterday Cassandra Clare took to her tumblr to share another The Dark Artifices snippet. The following paragraph could be from Lady Midnight or Lord of Shadows, which is set to be released in April 2017:

Far below them the world spun by, a patchwork of summer-gold fields, green hills, and luminous, winding rivers of blue and green. It was beautiful, but Julian could not take his eyes off his brother. So this is the Wild Hunt, he thought. This freedom, this expanse, this ferocity of joy. For the first time, he understood how and why Mark’s choice to stay with his family might not be an easy one. For the first time he thought in wonder of how much his brother must love him after all, to consider giving up the sky for his sake.

A little while ago Cassie also tweeted a link to a short snippet on her TDA Pinterest board:

I’m so excited to learn more about Mark, Julian and all the other characters :-)

Lady Midnight will be published in 29 days (March 8)!

Cassandra Clare talks ‘Lady Midnight’ and ‘Shadowhunters’ with Publishers Weekly

cassie clare headshotCassandra Clare is busy writing the second book of her The Dark Artifices trilogy – Lord of Shadows – and the next book in her Magisterium series with Holly Black, but she found the time to answer four questions that Publishers Weekly had for her.

You always have some cool contest or giveaway for your readers when you release a new book. What are you planning for Lady Midnight?

Well, I really wanted to be able to sign the entire first run of Lady Midnight but then they told me how many books that would be (at least 600,000) and I realized no human being could do that. I’m aware of what signing 150,000 copies [of The Fault in Our Stars] did to John Green. So I remembered that when Suzanne Collins hurt her wrist and couldn’t autograph any copies of Mockingjay, she had a special stamp made that she used during her tour but then retired, never to be used again. So I asked if we could create some kind of unique stamp and I would stamp as many books as I could, which still turned out to be less than they were going to actually print. So we drafted a bunch of people with connections to the book – the designer, the editor, the president of Simon and Schuster – and we had stamping parties to get it done. So if you get a stamped book, it was done by me or by somebody very close to the production of the book.

All this and a TV show, too! Freeform [formerly ABC Family] just launched Shadowhunters, its own series based on the books. Did you get to have any input?

I’m actually not involved at all. I mean, I did visit the set but I am as clueless as the next person as to what will happen next. Well, I do know a little, but I wasn’t involved in writing it and I didn’t have right of approval or get a consultant fee or anything like that. But, of course, all my readers always come to me with questions about it. That’s the thing about having a close relationship with your fans: they think to ask me first even though the TV series is really a completely separate thing that doesn’t have anything to do with me or the books. I think that will change. I think fans of Pretty Little Liars have finally separated the books from the show. [The show] is a riff on my work, not my work. A lot of people want to know, ‘Why aren’t you involved?’ and the real answer is, if I insisted on being involved, nobody would have bought the rights to make it. That’s just not the way these things work except in very special circumstances. And I’m okay with that.

You can read the whole interview here.

Lady Midnight will be published on March 8 and if you preorder now, you will get a stamped book with other cool extras.

LM ARC

At the beginning of the week Cassandra Clare unpacked the gorgeous Lady Midnight box which contained an ARC of the book, a map and other cool stuff. She announced that she would be giving away three of these ARC boxes and today she shared what fans have to do to win one ARC:

I have three ARCs (Advance Reader Copies) of Lady Midnight to give away, in their beautiful boxes with their amazing artwork, maps, and cool additions! You can see the video of the ARC here.

Here’s how you enter the contest:

Take a picture of yourself holding a copy of any Shadowhunter book you already own.
(Foreign editions are totally fine. Ereaders are OK as long as there’s a visible image of the front cover on the screen.)

Try to make your the picture creative. For example, you could take the picture in an interesting location, include elements of what you love about the books, or wear a costume. (You don’t have to go anywhere elaborate to do this: one girl won a contest like this for taking a picture in a bathtub full of spaghetti!)

Post it to social media: tumblr, twitter, instagram. Whatever your favorite platform is.

Then email the link to that post to ladymidnightcontest@gmail.com before February 7th. DO NOT EMAIL THE PICTURE. EMAIL THE LINK TO THE POST.

Winners will be contacted shortly after the contest ends.

This contest is open to readers all over the world, ages 13 and up. One entry per person.

How amazing and generous is this contest? Fans from all over the world can enter and I hope that Cassie will share the most creative pictures after the winners have been picked.

Cassie also tweeted about the contest and established two more rules:

Good luck, Shadowhunters and please make sure to follow Cassie’s rules :-)

For all the US fans out there, Goodreads is giving away 20 Lady Midnight ARC – you can enter here. We don’t know whether they are giving away an ARC or the box with an ARC, but it’s still a great opportunity for all the fans in the USA.

Lady Midnight will be released on March 8!

Livvy, Ty and Mark talk about syphilis in new ‘Lady Midnight’ snippet

The Dark Artifices

Interesting title, huh? Cassandra Clare shared a new Lady Midnight snippet and it features Livia, Mark and Tiberius Blackthorn as well as a mundie girl:

Livvy made an exasperated noise, stomped forward, and seized Mark by the back of the shirt. “You don’t want him,” she said to the pink-haired girl. “He has syphilis.”

The girl goggled. “Syphilis?”

“Five percent of people in America have it,” said Ty, helpfully.

“I do not have syphilis,” Mark said in a fury. “There are no sexually transmitted diseases in Faerieland!”

The mundane girls fell instantly silent.

By the Angel, I’d really like to know why they are talking about STDs.

Lady Midnight will be published on March 8 and you can still preorder your special edition from Waterstones who have worldwide shipping!

Cordelia, Lucie and Matthew drive in a carriage in new ‘The Last Hours’ snippet

TLH spring newIt’s been a while since Cassandra Clare has shared a snippet from her second new trilogy, The Last Hours, but today she took to her tumblr to publish a snippet that features the parabatai pair Lucie and Cordelia as well as Matthew:

Cordelia clutched Lucie’s hand as they jolted through the streets in the Carstairs’ carriage, surrounded by the blurred traffic of omnibuses, motorcars, and pedestrians. Advertisements whirled past. THE HORSESHOE HOTEL. THREE GUINEA STOUT. NEW PALACE STEAMERS. Signs advertising tailors and fishmongers, hair tonic and cheap printing.

Matthew, sitting across from them on the upholstered carriage seat, was muttering and swearing to himself, his hair sticking out madly.

“Hidebound,” he muttered. “Weasels.”

“What?” said Lucie.

“I think he said hidebound weasels,” said Cordelia. “But who do you mean, Matthew? Are you angry at us?”

Matthew flung himself sideways so his long legs were pulled up on the bench seat in front of him, and his profile was presented to Lucie and Cordelia. It was a fine profile: he was much more delicate-featured than his brother, who had a broad, strong face. Matthew had a face that looked as if it had been meant to be painted on china.

“Of course not,” he said. “It’s just appalling how they all treat James.” He glanced at Cordelia, and then at Lucie. “She knows, doesn’t she?”

The Last Hours does not have a release date yet, but it is likely that it will be published after the second book of Cassie’s The Dark Artifices trilogy.

You can check out all the previously released snippets here or have a look at Cassie’s TLH Pinterest page.

New Featurette: ‘Shadowhunters’ Glossary, Volume 3

SHADOWHUNTERS - “The Mortal Cup” - One young woman realizes how dark the city can really be when she learns the truth about her past in the series premiere of "Shadowhunters" on Tuesday, January 12th at 9:00 - 10:00 PM ET/PT. ABC Family is becoming Freeform in January 2016.

Now thrown into the world of demon hunting after her mother is kidnapped, Clary must rely on the mysterious Jace and his fellow Shadowhunters Isabelle and Alec to navigate this new dark world. With her best friend Simon in tow, Clary must now live among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves to find answers that could help her find her mother. Nothing is as it seems, including her close family friend Luke who knows more than he is letting on, as well as the enigmatic warlock Magnus Bane who could hold the key to unlocking Clary's past.

Exclusive: Katherine McNamara Talks Staying Faithful with ‘Shadowhunters’

SHADOWHUNTERS - “The Mortal Cup” - One young woman realizes how dark the city can really be when she learns the truth about her past in the series premiere of "Shadowhunters" on Tuesday, January 12th at 9:00 - 10:00 PM ET/PT.

With Shadowhunters gearing up to make its January debut, fans are eager to see how their favorite series will make the transition to the small screen. While adaptations are never 100 percent carbon copies of their books, the focus is always on how faithful adaptations manage to stay to its source material.

We had the chance to chat with Shadowhunters star Katherine McNamara about the challenge of staying faithful to the books and yet making it fresh, as well as portraying the strong Clary Fray, her favorite relationships in the series, her favorite thing about the show, and the rapport of the Shadowhunters cast.

STAYING FAITHFUL TO THE BOOKS │ The most challenging aspect of adapting a book series to new media is ensuring that you’re staying faithful to the source material. It’s what fans expect, but it’s something that can prove difficult. When we spoke to McNamara about the challenge of staying true to the essence of this story and these characters, she told us that it’s something that they haven’t taken lightly.

“I think Shadowhunters has found a really great balance with staying true to the original and yet taking its own interpretation and perspective on the story,” she said. “Yes, we do have the same story from point A to point B – and the first book is kind of the first season – and we do stay true to the characters in every sense, and that’s something we took great care to do throughout the season.”

But with any adaptation there are going to be changes. While the first season essentially covers the first book (City of Bones), there will be additions from books 2-4 and certain elements of the series that will be changed.

“We still want it to be entertaining for people who know the books cover to cover; we still want to surprise people,” McNamara said. “We bring in characters from books 2, 3, and 4, and we have elements of the story that are different, and certain relationships kind of change in ways you wouldn’t expect. It takes you on a ride that even as a fan of the books you’ll still be surprised, and you’ll still gasp, laugh, and cry, and experience all of the roller coaster that you would if you’d never met these characters before.”

PORTRAYING CLARY FRAY │With The Mortal Instruments fans have gotten a strong female hero to look up to and follow through her ups and downs with Clary Fray. When it comes to portraying that strong female character that so many people look up to, McNamara called landing the role of Clary “a dream come true,” but she also understands the huge responsibility that comes with portraying a beloved character.

“As you well know, when you read these books you become attached to these characters and you have such a personal relationship with them; you grow up with them,” she said. “For a lot of these people these characters are their heroes. In bringing them to life we feel that responsibility. I know that my biggest goal is to do justice to a character that Cassie (Clare) has created and to the story and to all of these fans that are so fiercely loyal to us.”

THE MALEC EFFECT │With the books being as popular and appreciated as they are, fans have become attached to the series’ central couples, and that’s something that McNamara said that Shadowhunters is being sure to take care of.

While McNamara loves the traditional ships like Clace (Clary/Jace), Malec (Magnus/Alec) and Sizzy (Simon/Isabelle), she admitted that she is partial to Malec.

“Personally, I have a real attachment to the Magnus/Alec relationship as a fan just because I see the way that Matt (Daddario) and Harry (Shum Jr.) have taken such care to portray the relationship on screen, and I think fans are really going to be excited to see the elements that they bring to that relationship,” she said. “I know that I just fell in love with it from the beginning. I give them so much respect for the care that they took to do it right.”

THE LOVE TRIANGLE │One of the central elements in the first part of The Mortal Instruments is the love triangle between Clary, Jace, and Simon. That’s definitely an element of the book that we’ll see in Shadowhunters.

“I find the love triangle with Simon, Clary, and Jace so interesting because she can never truly choose; she needs both of them in her life,” McNamara said. “She needs Jace because he understands the Shadowhunter part of her, and he can teach her about this world and how to survive it. Yet she needs Simon because he understands the human side of her. He understands where she came from and her past, and he keeps her grounded through all of this fantasy she’s going through.”

LADIES SUPPORTING LADIES │More often than not television lacks a central focus on the importance of female relationships, which we often find them pitting women against women. One of the relationships that McNamara is most excited for fans to see is that between Clary and Isabelle because it really focuses on the cultivation of that relationship and two strong women being strong without tearing each other down.

“So often you get two strong female characters, one who’s established and one who’s new to a certain world, and they often clash and it becomes a competition; it becomes a cat fight,” she said. “That’s old hat; we’ve seen that story a million times over. That never happens; it doesn’t happen in the books, and it doesn’t happen in the series. Emeraude and I have had such a great time playing that relationship and appreciating that fact that we can be two strong women who have a sisterly relationship in life and on screen. That’s something that I think is really unique about Shadowhunters.

MAKING FANTASY A REALITY │While The Mortal Instruments has always been a thrilling, exciting adventure, and its core it’s been the relationships that have resonated with fans and made the series one that has had such a profound impact on so many people. For McNamara, that’s her favorite part about the books and about Shadowhunters.

“My favorite thing about Shadowhunters is that even though it takes place in this fantastical world that’s very different from our own, the characters are so relatable, and so rich and so diverse. Even though each character seems like one thing at the beginning of the story, they’ve force into these situations and they’re forced to really go to a vulnerable place and expose a part of themselves that kind if breaks their stereotype and changes your opinion of them as you read more. That’s something that’s very true about each one of us.”

THE CAST DYNAMIC │It was clear from the start that the cast of Shadowhunters was composed of a diverse group of people who all instantly clicked. Whether it was the behind the scenes photos or live streams of late night games of Werewolf, the chemistry is definitely there. McNamara called the cast “another family,” one that has already been through so much together even before the series’ debut.

“Being a bit younger than all of them it’s been really kind of amazing for me because I’ve been able to learn so much from each one of them,” she said. “Because we all come from such different backgrounds and we’re all such different people and we have different pasts and we grew up in different places, coming together it creates this weird sense of harmony because we all learn from each other, and we all have different experiences, and we all respect each other both as artists and as people.”

But aside from the fun and games of it all – which are always to be had – McNamara credits this cast with helping her grow both as an actor and as a person.

“Personally and professionally I’ve learned so much. I respect each one of them massively, and I don’t think we could get together and not have fun. Even if we tried to not have fun, I just think that’s an impossibility. I’m really grateful to have a group like that to share this experience with, and there’s no one else that I’d rather share it with.”
