Cassie Clare Announced New High Fantasy Duology

You know us, we’re obsessed with Cassie Clare books. We always have been and always will be. Shadowhunters have long been our thing.

Cassie announced that she has a new book coming –  Sword Catcher, an adult high fantasy duology due out in 2021.

But we’re excited that she’s got a new book coming and it’s outside the Shadowhunters world. Cassie announced the new book on her Tumblr.

I’m very excited to announce that I have a brand new high fantasy series in the works.

Sword Catcher will be the first book in my new series written for adults, my first ever high fantasy project. Many of my readers have been with me for years, and have grown along with my characters. And over those years, readers of all ages have come to me both to say that they would like to read books about older characters, and also to say that they’d love to see me build my own new world from the ground up.

So I’m happy to say these books are coming from Del Rey books! I am very excited to be working with Anne Groell, who has edited Naomi Novik and George R. R. Martin among others, and has a sure hand with fantasy worlds. I’m thrilled to be published by Random House, who are excited as I am to bring you the tale of a young man raised to be the body double for an unworthy prince, a young woman destined to change the world, and a host of other characters I cannot wait for you to meet.

These characters — criminals, princes, magicians, and warriors — have been in my head for a while, and I am eager to let them out. I can’t tell you the publication date yet, since the book is a work in progress. But I can’t wait to share more information with you when I have it.

Our excitement for Cassie knows no bounds. It sounds AMAZING. We can’t wait to read it.
