New Magnus and Alec Book Series

If you love Magnus and Alec (who doesn’t??), you need to order the first book in the new “The Eldest Curses” series entitled “The Red Scrolls of Magic.” It is due to be released April 9.

One of the interesting things about this new series is that Cassandra Clare is being joined by Wesley Chu as an author. Chu won the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer in 2015 with this debut novel, “The Lives of Tao.”

Here’s the “official” information about the book:

All Magnus Bane wanted was a vacation—a lavish trip across Europe with Alec Lightwood, the Shadowhunter who against all odds is finally his boyfriend. But as soon as the pair settles in Paris, an old friend arrives with news about a demon-worshipping cult called the Crimson Hand that is bent on causing chaos around the world. A cult that was apparently founded by Magnus himself. Years ago. As a joke.

Now Magnus and Alec must race across Europe to track down the Crimson Hand and its elusive new leader before the cult can cause any more damage. As if it wasn’t bad enough that their romantic getaway has been sidetracked, demons are now dogging their every step, and it is becoming harder to tell friend from foe. As their quest for answers becomes increasingly dire, Magnus and Alec will have to trust each other more than ever—even if it means revealing the secrets they’ve both been keeping.

Is it crazy that I always pre-order both the Kindle version ($12.99) as well as the hard cover versions ($16.50) of all of Cassandra Clare’s books? I like to have the Kindle version to jump into immediately and then the hard cover for my collection!

More to come once I get my hands on it and have a chance to read it!



Unique Team Malec Merchandise

If you are like me and have shipped Alec and Magnus since the beginning, you need to check out the cool stuff on Redbubble. They have a whole section of over 3200 Shadowhunters items plus specific items for the different characters.

For those of you early in your reading, you are probably wishing and hoping that Alec and Magnus will end up together (Love is Love!). For those of you further in your reading, you are likely thinking about all of the ups and downs between them and likely crying just thinking about it.

One of the really cool things about Redbubble is that you can customize the same image onto different products. For example, you may find something you like and want a t-shirt or mug (some of the most common products). However, you can also go with something really different like a tote bag or a throw pillow. There are so many ways to customize the different images that you could end up with 1000 different Malec items!! [Read more…]

The Dark Artifices Book 3 Due Out December 4

I don’t think it is a coincidence that “Queen of Air and Darkness” (the 3rd book in the Dark Artifices series) is due out on my birthday, December 4!! I have been waiting so long for this book and getting to read it on my birthday will be pretty much the perfect gift.

So what do we know about the book? Here’s the official description:

“Innocent blood has been spilled on the steps of the Council Hall, the sacred stronghold of the Shadowhunters. In the wake of the tragic death of Livia Blackthorn, the Clave teeters on the brink of civil war. One fragment of the Blackthorn family flees to Los Angeles, seeking to discover the source of the disease that is destroying the race of warlocks. Meanwhile, Julian and Emma take desperate measures to put their forbidden love aside and undertake a perilous mission to Faerie to retrieve the Black Volume of the Dead. What they find in the Courts is a secret that may tear the Shadow World asunder and open a dark path into a future they could never have imagined. Caught in a race against time, Emma and Julian must save the world of Shadowhunters before the deadly power of the parabatai curse destroys them and everyone they love.”

Julian and Emma have to find a way to end up together. Right? I mean, RIGHT???

Pre-order now and get the kindle version for just $12.99 so you are guaranteed to be reading it on the day it comes out! Then get the hardcover book to add to your collection (which I am sure you have) for $22.49 on Amazon.

Kierark Snippets

We all remember the relationship between Kieran and Mark Blackthorn from The Dark Artifices Book #1 Lady Midnight. Here are two Kierark snippets from Lord of Shadows, releasing May 23! Enjoy some more snippets from the book and pre-order it here.

Snippet #1:

“I have always needed you, Kieran,” Mark said. “I have needed you to live. I’ve always needed you so much, I never had a chance to think about whether we were good for each other or not.”

Kieran sat up. “That is honest,” he said, finally. “I cannot fault you there.”

Shadowhunter Gift Guide


Because there hasn’t been any new official Shadowhunter merchandise this year, it can be hard to find gifts for Shadowhunter fans. However, I have a few ideas for you that will help you! First, here are the best places to find Shadowhunter stuff right now:

Amazon has a little bit more of the “official” merchandise but it is sold mainly by resellers, so quantities are limited and prices can be high.

Etsy is all handmade, so it may take longer for things to ship depending upon the individual shop owners. However, they do have really unique things.

The other two, Redbubble and Zazzle, have a nice selection of items that you can buy year round in different sizes and colors.
