Fans of The Mortal Instrument series will be happy to know that it seems that the sequel movie is still on the cards. Although the first sequel was reported for its low sales, the film continues because of the huge fan base of the novels.

The Official statement from Martin Moszkowicz, the company head of film and TV confirms this:

“The fan response, from the blogosphere and the thousands of mails we have received, has encouraged us to keep going. It’s been overwhelmingly positive, in contrast to some other YA titles. We are analyzing what we did wrong with the first film – particularly with the positioning and marketing – and what changes we have to make. We are working with a great group of people to reposition the franchise [for City of Ashes].”

Whilst we can give you the above good news, at this stage we have no release date.

In City of Heavenly Fire, Clary, Jace and co. are on a mission to stop Clary’s evil brother, Sebastian, from destroying the Shadowhunters (Nephilim) who protect the Earth against demons. After a flurry of attacks, New York is deemed no longer safe, and the Shadowhunters retreat to their home country of Idris.

It seems that the only way to stop Sebastian is to use the heavenly fire that is coursing through Jace’s veins, but Jace is struggling to control the fire within him, let alone weaponise it. Sebastian remains fixated on Clary, but it could be Jace who truly understands the madness within his quasi-brother.

The final installment in The Mortal Instruments series builds on Cassandra Clare’s other Shadowhunter novels in a way that will be entirely satisfying to fans and confusing to all others.

There is the sense when reading City of Heavenly Fire that Clare is checking things off a long list. Romantic entanglements? Check. Mentions of incest? Check. Action scenes ending with long speeches? Check, check, check. It isn’t a bad thing — after all, readers of Heavenly Fire will be fans of The Mortal Instruments (or, at least invested enough to want to know how it ends); they will be used to these conventions, and they will like them. After five previous installments, the style and the structure of this story is familiar, like an old friend.

In fitting with these conventions, the final installment of The Mortal Instruments is not short on plot. This vacillates between action and romance; the characters might be battling against the evil Jonathan Morgenstern, but they still find time to worry about their own romantic troubles.

This is a familiar pattern for Mortal Instruments fans, as is the high body count. City of Heavenly Fire opens with a double murder, and the first main character loses their life in the first 150 pages. By the time the novel closes, they are not the only one. Emotional upheaval caused by the death of beloved characters? Check.

That is not to say that Heavenly Fire is not a good book. Clare’s writing is punchy, and she knows her world inside out. The characters speak with believable voices, and the dialogue is enough to make you laugh out loud more than once. The plot rattles on at a page-turning pace, and even though you know to expect twists, the revelations themselves are a surprise.

If there is to be a criticism of City of Heavenly Fire, it is this: the book is too reliant on Clare’s other Shadowhunter works. If readers are not familiar with prequel series The Infernal Devices, or the companion novellas that comprise The Bane Chronicles, they will be left in the dark at many points during the story.

Similarly, too much time is spent introducing the characters that will feature in The Mortal Instruments followup The Dark Artifices. For those who do not plan to read the companion series, these sections offer very little to the narrative and cause the pace to idle frustratingly.

Despite all of this, if this was a checklist, Heavenly Fire would tick every box that a Mortal Instruments fan could want. If you are a fan of Shadowhunters and Downworlders, and can keep your Herondales straight from your Blackthorns, you will find a satisfying conclusion to The Mortal Instruments series in City of Heavenly Fire.

Fans of ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones‘ have been waiting to hear about the progress of a sequel after hearing about the second film being delayed due to low box office returns. While the original film did make a profit, it was at a slim margin which stalled the sequel’s progress. Initially, filming for ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes’ was scheduled to start in Toronto, Canada last September before being delayed to a 2014 production. Sadly now, we are getting a new stumbling block. It was just announced that the director of the first film, Harald Zwart (‘The Karate Kid’, ‘Agent Cody Banks’), is now out of the sequel’s creation.

While the studio has made no official announcements, as of this time Zwart stated that “The studio is still certain that they will make this movie, but it’s not me who directs it. I will focus on other projects in the future. Shadow Hunters was a great experience and it gave me a good window to show off.”

The other project Zwart is now involved in is the film ‘The 12th Man,’ a World War2 film based on the exploits of Jan Baalsrud.

Who will be replacing the director for the next installment? While Zwart confirmed leaving the production, there has been no announcement yet from Sony. I’d expect a new director to be picked in the near future for plans to move forward this year to remain intact. Hopefully, whoever the new director will be can capture the characters as well as Zwart did.

While the film may not have done well initially at the box office, the support has been terrific. Fans of the novels have done nothing but heap praise on the first film and have been clamoring for a sequel. Here’s hoping to a quick announcement and return to shooting as the film is supposed to be in the works this year!

Even though the final book in The Mortal Instruments series is yet to be released, it seems that author Cassandra Clare is keen to keep writing about the shadow hunters.

After City of Heavenly Fire is released May 27, Clare will be working on three series simultaneously: The Dark Artifices (the sequel to The Mortal Instruments), The Last Hours (the sequel to prequel series Infernal Devices), and Magisterium (a pentology she is co-authoring with Holly Black, set outside the Shadowhunter World.)

Hypable has given us a list of titles and rough release dates:

- Magisterium 1: The Iron Trial (September 2014)

- TDA 1: Lady Midnight (2015)

- Magisterium 2 (Late 2015)

- TDA 2: Prince of Shadows (2016)

- TLH 1 (late 2016/early 2017) – Clare said she plans to release this and Prince of Shadows “quite close together,” but her publisher said it does not expect this until 2017.

- Magisterium 3 (2017)

- TLH 2 (2018)

- Magisterium 4 (2018)

- TDA 3: The Queen of Air and Darkness (2019)

- Magisterium 5 (2019)

- TLH 3 (2020)

Clare also revealed last week that the fifth (and allegedly last) Shadowhunter series will be titled The Wicked Powers. The title comes from a children’s poem in the Shadowhunter universe, “And bronze to summon wicked powers.” The poem was released as a snippet from the upcoming City of Heavenly Fire. The series will be set three years after The Dark Artifices, and will be focused on two of the younger Blackthorns (a Shadowhunter family to be introduced in TDA). If the above schedule holds, The Wicked Powers could start getting published in 2020.
