3 Ways to Read the Cassandra Clare Books in Order
My love for Cassandra Clare's books is apparent, especially to those who I tell, "ohmygodyouhavetoreadthisbookitsissogoodohmygod. Little do they know, unless they are heavily involved in the online book community, that there are many different ways to go about reading these literary miracles. As of right now, I know of about three of the most commonly used methods, but with the release of a new book and a new trilogy , it will probably get MUCH more complicated as time goes on. As of right now, Cassandra Clare has three series out: "The Mortal Instruments" six books that starts off with the original "trilogy," but was later expanded upon , "The Infernal Devices" a prequel trilogy to The Mortal Instruments , and "The Dark Artifices" a sequel trilogy to the Mortal Instruments. She is currently working on three other trilogies, which are to be released within the next four years, so fans of her books have plenty to look forward to. This is the way that Clare recommends, and is one way that you will definitely not be spoiled.
Publication Order of Mortal Instruments Collections
The Mortal Instruments is a series of six young adult fantasy novels written by Cassandra Clare , the last of which was published on May 27, The Mortal Instruments is chronologically the third series of a proposed five in The Shadowhunter Chronicles but it was the first one published. It follows Clary Fray who interacts with a group of Nephilim known as Shadowhunters while also discovering her own heritage. The Shadowhunters protect the world of mundane people, who are also called mundanes or "mundies", from dark forces beyond their world. When she began writing City of Bones , she did not view it as a young adult work, but first and foremost as a fantasy novel, where the main characters just happened to be teenagers.
The idea for the Mortal Instruments came to me one afternoon in the East Village. I was with a good friend of mine, who was taking me to see the tattoo shop where she used to work. I started thinking about a magical battle in a New York tattoo shop and the idea of a secret society of demon-hunters whose magic was based on an elaborate system of tattooed runes just sprang into my mind. When I sat down to sketch out the book, I wanted to write something that would combine elements of traditional high fantasy — an epic battle between good and evil, terrible monsters, brave heroes, enchanted swords — and recast it through a modern, urban lens. So you have the Shadowhunters, who are these very classic warriors following their millennia-old traditions, but in these urban, modern spaces: skyscrapers, warehouses, abandoned hotels, rock concerts. In fairy tales, it was the dark and mysterious forest outside the town that held the magic and danger. I wanted to create a world where the city has become the forest — where these urban spaces hold their own enchantments, danger, mysteries and strange beauty.
