Oooh. This is a little ominous, Shadowhunters. In a chat with Hollywood Crush, Cassie Clare talked a bit about the characters in The Mortal Instruments sequel series, The Dark Artifices.
“I know exactly what’s going to happen,” she said of the new series, which will take place in Los Angeles five years after the conclusion of the “TMI” books. “I’m still wrapping up the last book in the ‘Mortal Instruments’ series and the characters of ‘The Dark Artifices’ are introduced in it.”
Cassie says even she’s learning more about the new characters as she progresses with the book:
“I’m really getting to meet them for the first time in ‘The Mortal Instruments.’ They come in and we get to see them and their interactions with each other,” she said. “I really feel like in the book it’s an act of Clary and Jace and the other characters passing the torch on to this next generation younger than them and being like, ‘Now the adventure is your adventure.’”
Cassie promises that IF the characters survive City of Heavenly Fire, they will cross over to TDA:
“The surviving ones [will cross over],” Clare teased. “If you live through ‘The Mortal Instruments,’ you will probably be in ‘The Dark Artifices.’”
Sadly, Cassie also drops in that some deaths are going to hit pretty hard. I’m a little scared for Simon Lewis and Magnus Bane, particularly. Who do you think will survive or die CoHF?
