Get ready for more Shadowhunters in ‘The Last Hours’ trilogy coming in 2017

Shadowhunters CutWhile Cassandra Clare wasn’t set to reveal the title of her fourth Shadowhunter Chronicles series until Tuesday, but it seems as if the news has leaked early (via The Bookseller) Are you ready for more Shadowhunters?

THE LAST HOURS, which has been known as TLH for quite some time, is a planned trilogy that will take place in Edwardian London and will feature some familiar names and characters fans have heard about.

Cassie said the title — and the series — will pay homage to Great Expectations.

Book 1: Chain of Thorns (slated for 2017)

Book 2: Chain of Gold

Book 3: Chain of Iron

Cassie also shared a snippet from Chain of Thorns:

“For as long as Lucie Herondale can remember, the Herondale family manor has adjourned the manor of the Blackthorns.

It’s too bad that Tatiana Blackthorn, the matriarch of the family, has always been, as her father Will Herondale says, “mad as a mouse trapped in a teapot.” Since the day that her father Benedict murdered Tatiana’s husband, and was killed in turn by a group of Shadowhunters that included both her brothers, Tatiana has nursed a burning grudge against the London Institute and all its inhabitants, especially Will, Tessa and their children: Lucie and her brother, James …”

What do you think of the title THE LAST HOURS? Any theories about what may ensue? Sound off in the comments!

  1. Reblogged this on Avid Reader and commented:
    Infentisimly excited (ya I created a new word. I ought to make a dictionary of the (few) words I’ve created. Hmmmm.) for this trilogy. I CAN NOT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. will……

  3. If that is indeed the title, I’m disappointed with it. The other series have interesting titles that you wonder what is The Mortal Instruments, what are The Infernal Devices, etc. This just doesn’t seem like one of the titles to her book series.

    • I have to agree with this.. There’s no intense mystery about the name.. It sounds bland. Not the Cassie we all know and love

  4. WWWWIIIILLLLLLL!!!!!!,❤️❤️❤️❤️

    • Maybe a max 3-4 times in the books we’ll see Jem, because he’s a *spoiler* Silent Brother. Therefore he can’t have continual contact with them. Although it has been mentioned that Jem still does help with out a little bit.

    wait, “her father benedict” what does that mean?

    I think i may have died
    i died
    another herondale to love ❤

  8. I really want Tessa to meet Tatiana….I think that will be a interesting meet up! xD

      they do meet… Tatiana is Gideon and Gabriel’s sister… Her husband gets killed when Benedict gets Demon Pox. Tessa was part of the group that went to kill Benedict, and she was wearing a wedding dress. Tessa was told to stay with Tatiana while the rest of the group went to kill Tatiana’s father, Benedict Lightwood… (hope I didn’t spoil anyone)

      Didn’t they already meet?

  9. i will be too old to read those books but who cares!¿?

  10. OOOOO someone spilled the beans

    I ‘m so happy to now the name, don’t get me wrong, but I wish they didn’t spill the name. That would have sucked for cassie!

  12. Glad it’s defiantly being released – can’t wait. But 2017 Cassie really??? I would of prefer this series before the dark artifices – my option.

    In the Mid. Heir, Tatiana is about to kill 5 nephlim to revive her son. I hope Cassie doesn’t kill off Cordelia, I’ve already loved this girl.

  14. Aha! I’m mostly looking forward to TDA but after that I will read TLH for sure. I just need to finish TID lol.

    Soo excited!!!! But 2017? At least there’s the dark artificies to look forward to in the meantime. And of course city of heavenly fire!!!

  16. So she is making two shadowhuntet series the dark artifics and this?

  17. @ Hunter
    Yes. They are two separate Series, The Dark Artifacts will take place after the events of the Mortals Instruments and this series will take place after the events of the Infernal Devices.

    Holy shit that’s awesome! Another series! Well if one of the books comes out in 2220 or 2221 then I would have been a cassandra Clare fan for 10 Years!

    I get the feeling that Lucie or James will fall in love with a Blackthorn . . . Anyone else?

    • We know for sure that that’s what will happen. If you go look at the family tree on Cassie’s website it shows that lucie marries Jessie blackthorn.

      • But james marries cordelia

      • Juliette // March 25, 2014 at 9:42 AM //

        remember though Cassie told us that the family tree may not be correct…it’s told through only one perspective and that person may not know what actually happens

  20. SO EXCITED FOR THIS! I read the midnight heir and was intrigued by the story so I can’t wait to hear more about James and lucie herondale! I really hope that Cecily/Gabriel and Sophie/Gideon are in it along with their kids. I also hope to see a lot of sibling interactions between James and Lucie like we see in Alec and Isabelle in TMI!

  21. Could anybody please enlighten me what “adjourned” in this context mean? I cant really get to the bottom of it.. Tank you so much!

    2017!?!?!? I’ll be 19 already when it finally comes out …

  23. Wow can’t wait

  24. OMG! my dad just walked in asking why I was screaming like I has just seen josh duhmal naked in front of me. I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D

  25. Reblogged this on Diversity of the Teen Mind: My Mind and commented:

  26. OMG!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Shdowhunters!!!!! Go JACE, WILL CLARY, TESSA, JEM AND MAGNUS BANE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I want Cassandra Clare to never stop making books. She brings me such joy with every one of them. Btw, I feel like i am a character in TDA. Just listen to this Beatriz Mendosa (the institute tutor @ the NY institute) is practically stole my name: Beatryz Mendes – not that I mind, it feels awesome to have (sort of) my name in a book 😀
