5. City of Fallen Angels
6. Clockwork Prince
7. City of Lost Souls

Chloe | 3 comments Do I have to read all of The Mortal Instruments to read The Infernal Devices/ Lady midnight/ the Bane Chronicles???
I've read 1-3 of the mortal instruments, but I don't remember much... And I've watched the film and the tv show

But you have to read the TMI series(amazing) in order to read LM

Savannah (the_book_prophet) | 245 comments Read the mortal instruments and then the bane chronicles first. Then read the infernal devices and then lady midnight

Jessica Cartwright (jessicart15) | 321 comments start with the Infernal Devices (Clockwork Angel, Clockwork Prince, Clockwork Princess) then go onto the Mortal Instruments (City of Bones, etc..) you can read The Bane Chronicles then if you want and then there is the Dark Artifices (Lady Midnight is the only one out at the moment).

City of Glass is my favourite from The Mortal Instruments series but you need to read the first two books...

I think this ^ is the best order to read them in. :)
However if you want to read it series by series; start with TID then TMI, The Bane Chronicles, Tales From The Shadowhunter Academy and lastly Lady midnight :)

Holland (skittyy) | 9 comments I actually read The Infernal Devices before The Mortal Instruments because I didn't realize they were prequels. I had no issues following it.. you don't have to read TMI first but there are a lot of connections you'll miss if you don't lol. I'd start with City of Bones from TMI. TID > TMI though lol
