City of Bones Cassandra Clare, Screen Gems Some industry insiders see Clare's Mortal Instruments series as the most likely to inherit the Twilight mantle. "I think that's the really big one. It's got the biggest fanbase online from our experience," says Breanne Heldman, senior editor at MTV's NextMovie. City of Bones, the first in a planned six book series, shares some of the ingredients that helped Twilight become a hit, like an Everygirl heroine, Clary--to be played by Lily Collins--who learns about the supernatural from a most appealing boy. "Jace, the male character--he's very Edward," says Heldman, "but with more attitude." Simon and Schuster has published four Mortal Instruments books; the fifth hasn't been schedule (EDIT: Clare corrected EW, as City of Lost Souls has a release date of May 2012. )Here's the scan from the magazine:
First, JACE > EDWARD every time.
Second, CLARY > BELLA every time.
Third, THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS > TWILIGHT every time.
