Cassandra Clare has many devoted fans in common with Stephenie Meyer. And no doubt they are all currently engrossed in Cassie’s latest (hugely anticipated) addition to her Infernal Devices series, Clockwork Princess.
Cassie and Steph have always remarked openly how much they enjoy each other’s work and Examiner.com’s Amanda Bell has a great piece about the power of what Cassie calls “the Twilight effect” and the importance of strong female characters within their books. Read an excerpt below:
Clare, whose books Stephenie Meyer once blurbed about (saying “The Mortal Instruments series is a story world I love to live in. Beautiful!”), also issued praise for the impact Meyer has upon getting some series a wider audience at the outset.
“Stephenie has been lovely, super-promotive and she’s recommended my books to a lot of people,” Clare said. “She read the manuscripts of two of my books early on and was also one of the first big promoters of the Hunger Games, she talked about it everywhere.” (Meyer had said ofTHG early on, “I was so obsessed with this book I had to take it with me out to dinner and hide it under the edge of the table so I wouldn’t have to stop reading.”)
Clockwork Princess is on shelves now, and the adaptation of her first book, The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones, hits theaters on Aug. 2. Coincidentally, the film stars Twilight Sagaalum Jamie Campbell Bower as the hunky male lead, Jace Wayland.
