With her best-selling series coming to an end, Cassandra Clare has been busy working on her new series, The Dark Artifices. The first book in the trilogy is called Lady Midnight and focuses around characters introduced in City of Heavenly Fire, Emma Carstairs and the Blackthorn children. It is set five years after The Mortal Instruments leaves off at the Los Angeles institute.

Lady Midnight is expected to hit the shelves March 2015, so mark your calendars shadowhunters!
