Although it is Friday the 13th today, we have nothing but good news for you, especially for all the Jem fans out there! Cassandra Clare sent another newsletter to her fans earlier today and she officially announced a new short story collection called Ghosts of the Shadow Market.
Here’s everything you need to know:
The Shadow Market is a meeting point for faeries, werewolves, warlocks and vampires. There the Downworlders buy and sell magical objects, make dark bargains, and whisper secrets they do not want the Nephilim to know. Through two centuries, however, there has been a frequent visitor to the Shadow Market from the City of Bones, the very heart of the Shadowhunters. As a Silent Brother, Brother Zachariah is sworn keeper of the laws and lore of the Nephilim. But once he was a Shadowhunter called Jem Carstairs, and his love, then and always, is the warlock Tessa Gray.
Follow Brother Zachariah and see, against the backdrop of the Shadow Market’s dark dealings and festive celebrations, Anna Lightwood’s first romance, Matthew Fairchild’s great sin and Tessa Gray plunged into a world war. Valentine Morgenstern buys a soul at the Market and a young Jace Wayland’s soul finds safe harbor. In the Market is hidden a lost heir and a beloved ghost, and no one can save you once you have traded away your heart. Not even Brother Zachariah.
Also from Cassie’s newsletter:
I’ll be co-writing this collection with Maureen Johnson, Robin Wasserman, Sarah Rees Brennan and Pulitzer finalist Kelly Link! Ghosts of the Shadow Market will be published in a similar fashion to The Bane Chronicles and Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy. The first story, SON OF THE DAWN, will be released as an ebook in April, with seven more to follow, one per month. The print version of the collected stories will be released in 2019 (Walker Books will be publishing Ghosts of the Shadow Market in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand).
We are incredibly excited for these new short stories
