"...There is also a scene at the end of Clockwork Princess that connects directly up with Emma." ~Cassandra Clare
The full synopsis from tumblr:
The Dark Artifices picks up events in the Shadowhunter world five years after the end of City of Heavenly Fire. (This places it in about 2012-2013, since City of Bones took place in 2007.)
It concentrates on the Shadowhunters of the Los Angeles Institute, including the Blackthorns and the Carstairs. It takes the point of view of Emma Carstairs, a fierce fighting Shadowhunter with a desire for revenge, and her parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, one of the big sprawling family of Blackthorns that we started to meet in City of Lost Souls.
You’ll learn more about them in Heavenly Fire, and there is also a scene at the end of Clockwork Princess that connects directly up with Emma.
As for what it’s about specifically, well, you can expect magic, mayhem, love for requited and unrequited, a big cast of characters, sea-monsters, noir mystery, heartbreak, and the usual. If you want to know if any of the TMI characters show up in it, I can’t say who yet, because that would spoil who survives Heavenly Fire. But as for those who do survive, five years down the road they’ll be twenty, twenty-one — a good time to check in and see who’s still together and who’s doing what with their lives.Interesting pins from Cassie: *check out the descriptions*
