Cassandra Clare has landed a deal for a new young adult series called The Dark Artifices. Margaret K. McElderry Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, will release the first book in 2015.
Editorial director Karen Wojtyla negotiated the deal with Russell Galen of Scovil Galen Ghosh Literary Agency. This will be her third Shadowhunters series, the same world featured in The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices.
Here’s more from the release: “Set against the glittering backdrop of present-day Los Angeles, the series follows Emma Carstairs, the fiercest warrior and most skilled young Shadowhunter since Jace Wayland, and Emma’s sworn partner in arms, Julian Blackthorn. Despite Emma’s complicated feelings for Julian, the two must band together to investigate a demonic plot that stretches from the warlock-run nightclubs of the Sunset Strip to the enchanted sea that pounds the beaches of Santa Monica.”
