Mortal Instruments Announcements! O-M-G

Sunday, August 23, 2009

On Saturday, as some of you may know, Cassandra Clare hosted a Mortal Instruments party over in NYC. To say there were a few announcements made would be an understatement....


1. There will be a fourth book in the MI series! And it will follow (wait for it, wait for it), SIMON! Below is a bit of the press release:

Margaret K. McElderry Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, has acquired City of Fallen Angels, a fourth book in Cassandra Clare’s bestselling young adult fantasy series, The Mortal Instruments, which has over 1 million books in print. The story follows Simon, a character from the first three Mortal Instruments novels, City of Bones, City of Ashes and City of Glass, as he adjusts to life as a vampire. City of Fallen Angels will publish in hardcover in March 2011, followed by a paperback edition in July 2012.

Love, blood, betrayal and revenge — the stakes are higher than ever in City of Fallen Angels. Simon Lewis is having some trouble adjusting to his new life as a vampire, especially now that he hardly sees his best friend Clary, who is caught up in training to be a Shadowhunter—and spending time with her new boyfriend Jace. Not to mention that Simon doesn't quite know how to handle the pressure of not-quite-dating two girls at once. What's a daylight-loving vampire to do? Simon decides he needs a break and heads out of the city—only to discover that sinister events are following him. Realizing that the war they thought they'd won might not yet be over, Simon has to call on his Shadowhunter friends to save the day — if they can put their own splintering relationships on hold long enough to rise to the challenge.

2. (AND THIS ONE IS EPIC ON THE AWESOME SCALE!) The Mortal Instruments has been optioned to be made into a film! More info straight from Cassie below:

"The Mortal Instruments have been optioned by Unique Features. This is a film production company set up by former founders and co-presidents of New Line Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne, who oversaw the production of the Lord of the Rings movies."

3. The MI series is being made into a graphic novel via Th3rd World Studios.
