Cassandra Clare

About Cassandra Clare

Cassandra is synonymous with young adult fantasy fiction and is best known for the internationally bestselling Dark Artifices trilogy, Mortal Instruments series, and Infernal Devices trilogy.

In conversation for these exclusive events, the #1 New York Times bestselling author will explore her much-loved Shadowhunter series, discussing the Carstairs siblings, their unique challenges across the book series, and the angst and pain of romance. Cassandra will consider how her stories are inspired by both mythology and real-world events, and what is next for the Shadowhunter world: in books, television, graphic novels, and more! Plus, you’ll hear the story told by the author herself as she gives a fun, dramatic live reading from the series.

This evening celebrates the special event edition of the first book in the Shadowhunter series, The Last Hours: Chain of Gold, which will be available to purchase on the night, along with the event edition of the second book in the series, The Last Hours: Chain of Iron. The third book in the series, The Last Hours: Chain of Thorns, will be published in 2023.

With the chance to ask the author your own burning questions, and a post-show photo opportunity, this promises to be the perfect evening for super-fans of Cassandra’s magical books.
