Trivia

  • The series is very loosely modeled after A Tale of Two Cities.[1]
  • The series title refers to the clockwork automatons, created by the main antagonist, which were sometimes referred to as "Infernal Devices" in the trilogy.
  • Cassandra Clare got the idea for the series while on the Blackfriars Bridge, hence the bridge's significance in the series.[2]
  • The US/Canada paperback book covers for The Infernal Devices are being updated (repackaged) and officially replaced with new ones with a more modern look, to be released in September 2015 by Simon & Schuster.[3] The covers were revealed on May 13, 2015 on Tor.com.[4]
  • Simon & Schuster also has further plans to do alternative "adult covers" for the series.[5][6]
