With the release of the final book in the Mortal Instruments series, City of Heavenly Fire, set to come out next month, fans have been wondering what will be next for this author. Through her blog and Twitter page

As we know, she has already announced two new book series that she is working on, The Last Hours (the sequel to Infernal Devices) and Magisterium (she is co-writing this series with Holly Black about life outside the Shadow Hunter world.

The schedule, which can be seen below, starts after City of Heavenly Fire and brings us through 2020 with the schedule. By the looks of it, we can expect at least one new book from her a year. Also in the schedule, is the new Shadow Hunter series she is writing called The Wicked Powers. As of now, she has stated this will be the last Shadow Hunter series, but we know that she has changed her mind in the past.

Clare book schedule
Magisterium #1: The Iron Trial - September 9th 2014

The Dark Artifices #1: Lady Midnight - March 2015

Magisterium #2- 2015

The Dark Artifices #2: Prince of Shadows - 2016

The Last Hours #1 - Chain of Thorns late 2016/early 2017

Magisterium #5 - 2018

The Last Hours #3: Chain of Iron - 2020

There is no schedule yet for The Wicked Powers as it has just been announced and considering the full load she has now, it’s understandable. Clare has stated that this series will follow the Blackthorn family (which is a family from The Dark Artifices) and take place three years after TDA ends.
