Shadowhunters and Downworlders: A Mortal Instruments Reader

New York Times bestselling author Cassandra Clare and Smart Pop have teamed up to produce Shadowhunters and Downworlders: A Mortal Instruments Reader, a collection of young adult writers discussing Clare’s Mortal Instruments series. It’s just the thing to whet Mortal Instruments fans’ appetites for the August 2013 release of City of Bones, based on the series’ first book.

With a variety of essays ranging from the breezy and funny to the serious and heartfelt, Shadowhunters and Downworlders digs deep into Clare’s world. Join New York Times bestselling writers Holly Black, author of The Spiderwick Chronicles; Rachel Caine, author of the Weather Warden and Morganville Vampires series; Kami Garcia, co-author of the Caster Chronicles, and other smart, hilarious writers as they discuss everything from the virtues of Downworlders to the naughty side of Shadowhunting:

  • A cinematic tutorial on why the best friend (Simon) always loses out to the bad boy (Jace)
  • The benefits (no, really!) of incest . . . at least literarily
  • What we can read between the lines of Alec and Magnus’ European vacation
  • The importance of friendship, art, humor, and rebellion
  • And more!

This reader is a great accompaniment to the series that fans are sure to fall in love with. The writing is imaginative and beautifully executed, offering very diverse voices. You don’t have to be a fan to understand and enjoy the immensely creative minds of the writers involved.
