About the Author
Cassandra Clare is the author of the internationally bestselling Mortal Instruments series and The Infernal Devices trilogy. She was born in Tehran, Iran, and moved with her family to France, then England, when she was nine.
She spent most of her teen years in England before moving to the United States, where she now lives and works. Her hobbies include knitting, reading, and spending time with her cats. She wrote her first story when she was fifteen, and it involved two vegetarian vampires who were in love and sparkled in the sun.
Clare’s books have been translated into more than thirty-five languages and have spent more than sixty weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. The Mortal Instruments series has been made into a successful film and a television series. The first three books in the Infernal Devices trilogy were adapted into a graphic novel series by Marvel. Clare lives in Massachusetts with her husband and two sons.
In an interview, Clare said “City of Lost Souls was probably the hardest book for me to write in the series. I felt a lot of pressure because it’s the middle book and it has to do a lot of work. It has to advance the characters and the plot, and also provide a satisfying reading experience on its own, which is not always easy to do. I wrote and rewrote the ending several times before I was happy with it.”
