    • The Last King of Faerie, the next Shadowhunter installment, comes in early 2026.
  • Publisher Change: These upcoming books will be published by Knopf, an imprint of Random House, marking a departure from Clare’s longtime US publisher, McElderry Books.
  • Reason for Change: Cassandra Clare explains this decision resulted from a desire to find a publishing partner with a vision that aligns with hers for the future of the Shadowhunter series.
  • No Impact on International Readers: Fans outside the US can rest easy – Clare assures her international publishers will remain the same.

While some readers might be disappointed with the wait for The Last King of Faerie, Clare emphasizes the importance of delivering the best possible version of the story.

The delay allows her to focus on this new Shadowhunter adventure after completing The Ragpicker King, which has a pre-existing deadline.
