Hi, Cassie! You have so many current projects (Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, The Dark Artifices, The Last Hours, Magisterium), that it’s really hard to keep track of all of them. I know you don’t have set release dates for most of them, but could you please make an updated timeline of the book order, and when they might possibly be coming out? I can’t wait to read Lady Midnight! — buffylives

Sure. I went ahead and updated the timeline I posted earlier below, to reflect Shadowhunter Academy.

brookeelizaxo said: Hi Cassie! I love your books so so so sooo much! I finished City of Heavenly Fire and it was amazing. I was wondering when the rest of your novels were being released (TDA, TLH, TWP, etc)? Are there set dates or years for the releases? Thank you for such wonderful series! :)

Shadowhunter Chronicles:

City of Heavenly Fire wrapped up the Mortal Instruments series. The next installment of the Chronicles is The Dark Artifices, which takes place five years after CoHF. You can read about them here.

There are three Dark Artifices books: Lady Midnight, Lord of Shadows, and Queen of Air and DarknessLady Midnight is tentatively scheduled for release in late 2015 though it is not definite yet.

The Last Hours, the sequel series to The Infernal Devices, begins publishing shortly after Lady Midnight. You can read about it here. It’s about the children of the Infernal Devices characters.

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy is a sort of follow-up to the Bane Chronicles, in that it is 10 e-book stories that follow Simon from his arrival at the newly re-opened Academy in Idris for Shadowhunter training to the day he Ascends. You can read about it here.

So the order of books is:

The Bane Chronicles print edition, November 11, 2014

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, starting early 2015

Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices 1)

Chain of Gold (The Last Hours 1)

Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices 2)

Chain of Iron (The Last Hours 2)

Queen of Air and Darkness  (The Dark Artifices 3)

Chain of Thorns (The Last Hours 3)

That carries us through for quite a few years, so other than saying that the Shadowhunter Chronicles is intended to wrap up permanently with an installment called The Wicked Powers, I think that’s all I can say right now.

Magisterium

The Iron Trial, the first book in the Magisterium series, came out September 9, 2014. There will be an installment of Magisterium every September for the next four years.

The second book, The Copper Gauntlet, is scheduled for September 2015.

Hope that helps!

OMG! Cassie has so much in store! I can’t wait~!

“It’s so crazy.It’s really insane.I’ve been working with these girls for about four years now, and I couldn’t ask for a better cast.It’s so cool. We still get along, and we’re really supportive of each other. It’s great.”

                                                                        — Ashley Benson

“I hate them.No, I’m kidding. They’re all like my little sisters — except for Troian [Bellisario], she’s my older sister. The other two? They’re my little sisters.”

                                                                         — Shay Mitchell

“We’re very, very lucky to have a cast that respects each other and gets along. I know that a lot of shows aren’t like that, so we feel very lucky to have that strong foundation. It’s good to see them, because I haven’t seen them in a little bit.”

                                                                         — Lucy Hale

“At this point we are all so comfortable with each other. We are absolutely as close in real life as we are on the show. We all kind of take turns taking care of each other. If one of us was going through something, we’d be there for each other. Even today, they could just tell when I wanted to be alone and they could tell when I wanted someone to talk to. I can’t tell how many times I’ve been there for one of them to call in the middle of the night. I think life would be much cooler if we had woods to meet in, instead of the back of the WB studio where we shoot”

                                                                        — Troian Bellisario

Love these girls and their friendship <3

James could see his mother moving like an anxious pale star among the guests in her lilac dress, greeting each of them warmly, welcoming them to her home. She had not glamoured herself to look her husband’s age for the evening, and she appeared enormously young, though her hair was done up like…

Somehow t’s just heartbreaking…

"I truly want to thank everyone, I was really emotional after we got on the helicopter and it soared into the skies, now I don’t know how to react any more.  When we arrived in Hawaii the previous night, I stood on the balcony alone &amp; reminisce about what happened 15 years ago.  I have mostly forgotten about what happened that day, but I can still recall feeling confused and worried about the whole situation.  But ….. (Ohno’s voice cracks &amp; he eventually breaks down crying, the audience calls out his name and he puts his hands together in prayer position &amp; gestures an apology while silently crying) ……..after 15 years, the confusion &amp; worrisome feelings are all gone……thanks to my members, the staff, the managers and most importantly you the fans who have supported us these past 15 years.  Moving on to year number 16, please continue to travel this journey with us.  Once again thank you all so much for today."
