News on The Dark Artifices

Shadowhunters will also look better in black while under water!

In a tumblr post, Cassie tells us Shadowhunters have underwater gear and describes Emma's fashion style to be "more throughly beaten up, torn and repaired frequently."

There is actually water gear, though all Shadowhunters have it. It’s not like the New York Shadowhunters might not ever need to go into the river. It’s different from dry land gear. Dive boots, water-resistant material, waterproof belts — fun!
As for dressing up like Emma, she doesn’t dress like Izzy most of the time, she’s more jeans and tank tops and less velvet coats and high heels. She doesn’t wear dresses much. They both wear gear, but I would imagine Emma’s as more thoroughly beaten up, torn and repaired frequently, while Izzy would always make sure hers was spotless until she was actually fighting at the time.
And more of Emma's personality is revealed!
Lesson: the sea is a treacherous mistress. Emma is, actually, petrified of the ocean. That doesn’t mean she won’t go in it or kill demons in it, but she has nightmares about being pinned down at the bottom of the ocean with thousands of tons of black water on top of her.

More About The Dark Artifices

"...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.
Sometimes I pin things to my research Pinterest about it.
Interesting pins from Cassie: *check out the descriptions*
