I’m trying to cover the reading orders for the series with a TV Show, because there are always people who want to go further into a universe when the season ends. So, if you didn’t know, after a movie, there’s now a Shadowhunter TV show. It’s on Freeform (ABC Family).
What are The Shadowhunter Chronicles about?
It’s big. Yes, big. Possibly, when you were looking somewhere else, Cassandra Clare built a media franchise. There’s more than books (like the TV Show) but we’re going to stick with those.
The Shadowhunter Chronicles encompasses three novel series, two short-story collections and four graphic novels. Those stories are set in a universe where fairy tales and mythologies are true. Living alongside the mundane (or normal humans), a race of humans who possess angel blood, the Nephilim or Shadowhunters, is organized to patrol the Shadow World and prevent demons as well as Downworlders, including warlocks, faeries, werewolves, and vampires from attacking the mundanes.
