Cassandra Clare shares an updated publication schedule and synopses for ‘Ghosts of the Shadow Market’

It’s no secret that Cassandra Clare is a very busy woman with lots of exciting book releases in the next 3+ years! Today Cassie took to her tumblr to share what books her readers can look forward to in 2018, 2019 and 2020. She also posted the synopses for her eight Ghosts of the Shadow Market short stories and they all sound super cool so naturally we can’t wait to read them! If you do live in the USA, you can preorder your ebook of Son of the Dawn (Ghosts of the Shadow Market #1) here.
But now to Cassie’s announcement:

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.)

The stories:

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.

Upcoming books:

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)

March 2019

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”.

    I’m so glad that we will have something to keep us occupied April-November as we anticipate for Qoaad on December 4 😁 and I’m looking forward to all of them lol 🙂

  2. A friend loaned me TMI and TID right after CP2 was released. She recommended starting with TID and to be honest, it is by far my favorite series of hers so far. I had to wait around half a year for City of Heavenly Fire, which I pre-ordered, and I’ve ordered every single book since. I think I’m most looking forward to QAAD, though I’m nervous about what “everything changes” means for our favorite characters. I have my own predictions…… I’m also really excited for Ghosts of the Shadow Market. Jem is my favorite character. I’m intrigued about Chain of Gold. I really like what I’ve seen of the characters so far. I’m the least excited for TEC though I’m sure after I read Red Scrolls I’ll be more excited for the next ones. It’s an unpopular opinion, but Malec’s relationship was a slow burn for me. They seemed like such an unlikely pair because they were pretty opposite and both had some maturing ‘together’ to do before I was excited about them as a couple. Their short stories in The Bane Chronicles and Shadowhunter Academy helped flesh them out as individuals and I’m really enjoying them now that they’ve been together awhile. I’m excited to see them as parents and I think TEC will help me appreciate their relationship even more!
