I’ve noticed some confusion about my publication schedule, which makes total sense, since it’s pretty complicated right now! Here’s a bit of description to clarify the projects I have going on and when they will be coming out.
Ghosts of the Shadow Market
This is a series of short stories that focus on Jem/Brother Zachariah. They will be published serially as ebooks, with one story coming out each month between April-November 2018. Like The Bane Chronicles and Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, these short stories are collaborations between me and a talented group of writers, in this case Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson, Robin Wasserman, and Kelly Link!
(All of the Ghost of the Shadow Market stories will be collected in a print edition along with two bonus stories, likely coming out in the summer of 2019.)
April 2018: Son of the Dawn, with Sarah Rees Brennan. Set in 2000. Jace meets the Lightwoods for the first time!
May 2018: Cast Long Shadows, with Sarah Rees Brennan. Set in 1901. A visit to the Shadow Market changes Matthew Fairchild’s life forever.
June 2018: Every Exquisite Thing, with Maureen Johnson. Set in the early 1900s. The story of Anna Lightwood’s first love!
July 2018: Learn about Loss, with Kelly Link. Set in the 1930s. Brother Zachariah visits a dark carnival and dabbles in demon-summoning.
August 2018: A Deeper Love, with Maureen Johnson. Set in the 1940s. Tessa Gray and Catarina Loss pose as nurses in order to aid suffering mundane humans during WW2.
September 2018: The Wicked Ones, with Robin Wasserman. Set in 1989/90. Celine Montclaire encounters Valentine Morgenstern for the first time.
October 2018: The Land I Lost, with Sarah Rees Brennan. Set in 2012. Alec Lightwood and Lily Chen go to Buenos Aires to help rebuild in the wake of the Dark War, and Alec meets an orphaned Shadowhunter child.
November 2018: Through Blood, Through Fire, with Robin Wasserman. Set in 2012. A dark threat is looming over a child of the Shadow Market, and Jem Carstairs and Tessa Gray may be the only ones who can save him.
The Golden Tower (Magisterium 5)
September 11, 2018
This is it! The final book in the series! Callum Hunt’s destiny is sealed.
Queen of Air and Darkness (The Dark Artifices 3)
December 4, 2018
The last book of the trilogy sets in motion events that will change the Shadow World forever.
The Red Scrolls of Magic (The Eldest Curses 1)
Magnus and Alec planned to go on a nice peaceful vacation after the Dark War. They weren’t planning on encountering stolen memories, dark secrets, vicious demons, and murderous cultists. Suddenly their European tour looks a lot more like work, but both are still determined to enjoy it!
Ghosts of the Shadow Market print edition
No exact date yet, probably Summer 2019
Chain of Gold (The Last Hours 1)
No exact date yet, likely sometime between September-November 2019
This is the beginning of a new Shadowhunter trilogy set during the Edwardian Era! The children of Tessa, Will, and the other characters from the Infernal Devices have grown up in a far less frightening world than their parents did. But trouble is brewing amid their boating parties and balls. Revenge, prejudice, and obsession lie hidden beneath the surface of their world, and a mysterious illness has begun to strike Shadowhunters down…
The Lost Book of the White (The Eldest Curses 2)
Likely March 2020
Magnus and Alec thought the adventures of their far-too-eventful vacation were long past. But old friends and old enemies linger, and the story continues…
Chain of Iron (The Last Hours 2)
Once again, likely to come out in Fall (September-November) 2020
The story of James, Lucie, Cordelia and their friends continues.
2021: After this everything gets a little fuzzy. Publications aren’t scheduled this far out, but we’ve still got The Last Hours 3, The Eldest Curses 3, and Sword Catcher on the horizon!
Have we mentioned how much we love Cassie, her hard work and how excited we are for all these releases!? 😀 ❤ Don’t forget that there’s also The Wicked Powers – a trilogy that concludes The Shadowhunter Chronicles – and ten free The Last Hours short stories “in the leadup to the publication of Chain of Gold”.
