Book News: Cassandra Clare’s new series

Here at EW’s Shelf Life, they have the first look at the cover for Clockwork Angel, the first book in Cassandra Clare’s new series, Infernal Devices. This is the companion series to her Mortal Instruments series, a hugely popular urban fantasy series about a group of demon hunters, called Shadowhunters, living secretly in New York City. (If you haven’t read this action-packed, romantic series, starting with City of Bones, give it a try. A fourth book in the series, City of Fallen Angels, will be out next spring.)

Here’s what EW has to say about the new series:

“In the new series, Clare brings us back to this Shadowhunter-Downworlder universe—and back in time to Victorian-era England. Infernal Devices revolves around Tessa Gray, an orphan who heads to London in search of her disappeared brother and, like Clary, falls deeper and deeper into an alternate magical reality. Along the way she finds two good friends in Jem and Will (who graces the new cover), and also crosses paths with some familiar names and faces from the Mortal Instruments saga.”

Gaming This Thursday!

This Thursday, March 11, we’ll be set up at 3:30 p.m. in the Storytime Room. We’ll have my PS2 hooked up with Guitar Hero, Lego Star Wars, Ratchet: Deadlocked, and some other multiplayer games available. We’ll also have card games and board games, magazines, and food. Stop by after school and play for a while — we’ll be there until 6 p.m.

Also, thanks to our amazing Friends of the Library, the library will be getting a Wii for teen and children’s programs! We hope it have it by the next after-school gaming event, Thursday, April 8, so keep checking back for more information. Any PS2 or Wii games you guys want to see here in the library? Post in the comments to let me know.
