Thank you, Cassandra Clare!
Today I got a fabulous email from my editor, who told me that Cassandra Clare, author of The Mortal Instruments fantasy trilogy, has read Ash — and that she enjoyed it enough to blurb it! Here’s what she said about it:
“This lyrically retold Cinderella tale is not just a beautifully updated fable, but an ode to the transformative power of love.”
— Cassandra Clare, bestselling author of The Mortal Instruments series
How cool is that? Thank you a million times, Ms. Clare!
The Mortal Instruments is comprised of three volumes — City of Bones, City of Ashes, and the just-released City of Glass — and is an urban fantasy series set in a New York City full of “evil spirits, angels, warlocks, faeries and shadowhunters” (Kirkus). It follows “15-year-old Brooklyn girl Clary Fray’s whirlwind introduction to the world of Shadowhunters, nephilim warriors who protect oblivious humans from dangers presented by vamps, werewolves and other kinds of baddies” (New York Post).
