Author(s): Cassandra Clare and Joshua Lewis
A beautifully illustrated full-colour guide to the world of the Shadowhunters from the international bestselling series The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices. Since the thirteenth century, the Shadowhunters' Codex has been the one and only manual for Shadowhunters looking to brush up on their demon languages, learn proper stele use and discover just what exactly a pyxis is. Featured in both The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices, this guide is a necessity for any young Nephilim on their journey to becoming a Shadowhunter. This is Clary's copy, and as an artist herself, she's sketched pictures of her friends and family throughout the book, and scrawled helpful advice in the margins. Of course, she couldn't exactly stop Jace or Simon from adding their thoughts either.
Cassandra Clare was born to American parents in Tehran, Iran, and spent much of her childhood travelling the world with her family. She lives in Western Massachusetts with her husband and three cats. Joshua Lewis lives in western Massachusetts with his wife, Cassandra Clare, three cats, and several thousand books. When not exhaustively researching arcane bits of the Shadowhunter universe, he can be found playing music, writing his own fi ction, and keeping the weight of several thousand books from collapsing the house.
