seriously guys if you dislike Cassie that much and if you hate the books she writes WHY DO YOU EVEN WASTE YOUR TIME ON WRITING A REVIEW ON A BOOK THAT HASN'T EVEN BEEN RELEASED YET? If you don't like it - don't read it. no reason to spread hate. Why do you even care? This is getting really annoying; don't you have better things to do than hate on a book that isn't even out yet? guess what, she can write about whatever she wants to write and even if she publishes 100 more books in the ...more

"The five Shadowhunter series are TiD, TLH, TMI, TDA, and very far down the road, TWP."- Cassandra Clare.


^^Then where did this Bane Adult crap come from suddenly? I totally forgot about The Wicked Powers series, it supposedly comes AFTER The Last Hour? I was kind of looking forward to TLH. I really like historical paranormals but this announcement of the new series ruined all the Shadowhunter books for me. CC is clearly in it just for some quick cash. I never thought I would be one of those

Is Cassandra making an irrelevant and unnecessary Shadowhunter series again?
Yeah.
Will I still read it and claim it as one of my children?
Hell yeah.

I'm sorry, I just can't stop my addiction to her books.

The fuck.



Really, really, really!?!?!?!??!?!

Okay, Clare. Obviously, you have no class. Here are some future Shadowhunter spinoffs with the way your going:

1) Shadowhunter the Picture Book because five year-olds killing demons=life lessons

2) Fifty Shades of Shadowhunters with bonus incest because getting liver pumped only once isn't enough-hence the combo of Red Room of Pain and incest.

3) Shadowhunter College because new adult and shadowhunters = cash.

4) Of course, there's also the acclaimed idea

I can't honestly comprehend why CC has to keep writing more and more books in this world instead of doing new series. If she's as talent as everyone expresses that she is, then she could go and do something different and people will eat it up. Don't get me wrong, Magnus is the absolute love of my life, but really? Enough is enough.

Maybe it has something to do with how annoyed she is about what's happened with the TV show but really, make a profit off of something else please.

At this point, I think I'm going to have like Idk, thirty years? And CC will still writing books about shadowhunters.

And yes, I love Shadowhunters, and if it wasn't 'cause of TID I would probably be on parties every weekend, smoking, drinking or even pregnant, like my other classmates. But thanks to these books I'm in my room, alone with a book and a cup of coffee and I really appreciate that.

But, even that, I think Clare shouldn't write another trilogy focused on Magnus. We already have The

It's never gonna end (not that I'm really complaining, mind you).

Also, adult trilogy? Does that mean we're gonna read about Magnus having sex (preferably with Alec)???

and to THINK I was excited for this to come out this year!!!! ugh! now we have to wait until next March for Magnus Bane....

But on the bright side of this trilogy, here's one reason WHY this is going to be epic aside from the Bane Chronicles....

Mh, I don't know what to think about this. I always trust Cassie, but I'm not pumped about the idea of another book about Magnus. I love him, yes, but after the Bane Chronicles and all the books he's in I think adding a whole trilogy about him is just too much. And I don't know the other author, but the fact she's co-writing this makes me think she doesn't have time to write it all by herself (which I think it's understandable, since she has SO MANY books coming out already).
I don't know, I'm

I've seen so many people say that Cassandra Clare is milking the Shadowhunter world and I agree for the best reasons.
First of all, If I made the Shadowhunter world you bet I will be milking it forever.
I would be on my deathbed writing a new series about Church the cat.
Secondly, there is so many characters that could have their own story and life before or after TMI and TID. This just means we get more reasons to love the characters, and we all love Magnus so this trilogy is a gift from the gods.

Umm..seriously?

I've always had a bit of a love/hate relationship with Cassie's books (I greatly disliked TMI, TID was okay, LM was a major improvement), but yes. Truly. Enough is enough. (And, to be completely honest, CC should've stopped even before LM was released but shhh.)

But the problem is NOT the sheer amount of books she's written (and will write). No. It's not. The actual problem is wasting all that potential to write something in the Shadowhunter universe with a character that many
