Clare will publish an adult trilogy about fan-favorite character Magnus Bane, EW can announce exclusively. Published by Saga Press, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, the first book in the series is slated for a November 2017 release, and will be co-written by Wesley Chu, author of The Lives of Tao. “Over the years writing the Shadowhunter books, Magnus Bane has emerged as one of the most fun and fascinating characters for me to bring to life,” Clare says in a release. “He’s always had a lot of secrets — there are so many things we don’t know about Magnus, from the story of his first love to the secrets of his parentage, to the beginning of his relationship with Alec. All those are things I was able to touch on in The Bane Chronicles, but I’m excited to dig in even more deeply in these three volumes devoted to Magnus, his past, his future, and his present.”Says Chu, “I am so excited to contribute to the world that Cassandra Clare has created. These books and characters are iconic, and Magnus is a fan favorite. I can’t wait to give them all the things they deserve. And probably a few they don’t. Sorry, Magnus.”
In the end, I know what this is all about. This is all about attention and money. Let’s keep it real: Shadowhunters is actually eclipsing Clare, and she can’t fucking stand it. So fucking typical, and like always it’s just so unoriginal. This trilogy is basically her jumping and down shouting from the rooftops “Look At Me! Look At Me!” Not only it’s pretty pathetic, but it just continues to add on to the ever-growing list of books I have to fucking spork.
So in conclusion: Fuck you, Clare! Fuck you with a rusty spork!
