The Eldest Curses is an upcoming adult series revolving around Magnus Bane. It is being co-written by Cassandra Clare and Wesley Chu. The first book in the series is slated for a March 2019 release.
The trilogy will tackle many of Magnus's untouched secrets and stories from his past, his future, and his present, his first love, his parentage and his childhood, the beginning of his relationship with Alec, his relationship with his parents, Magnus and Alec's vacation in City of Fallen Angels, a big mystery, and many more.
- "A very special Malec scene in Paris will definitely be in one of the books."
- Either of the last two installments may tackle how Alec found Rafael Lightwood-Bane and why and how Alec and Magnus adopted him.
- For more, either go to the individual pages of the upcoming installments or check the unidentified snippets page.
"I'm sure," said Tessa gently, "but are you happy?"
Magnus had known her a long time. He let his defences drop a little, enough to answer with a simple: "Yes."
Tessa smiled, without an ounce of hesitation or grudging to be found in her. "I'm so glad."
Magnus was the one who hesitated. "Can I ask you something? You loved a Shadowhunter."
"Do you think I stopped?"
"When you loved a Shadowhunter, were you ever afraid?"
"I was always afraid," said Tessa. "It's natural to be afraid of losing the most precious thing in the world. But don't be too afraid, Magnus. I know warlocks and Shadowhunters are very different. I know the difference between you might feel impossible, the gulf can feel unpassable, but as someone I love once said to me, the right man will not care. You can build a bridge over the gulf, and find each other. You can build something much greater than either of you could ever have built on your own."
- The title of the series is derived from Hamlet, Act 3 Scene 3.
- As of 2017, the trilogy is considered a companion to the main series.
- The titles for the three installments were already decided before its announcement, but in September 2017, the order of the books were switched around to the current order.
