Fans of the series Shadowhunters have been campaigning for its survival after the news that the series will not return for a fourth series. The show — which is aired on the Disney subsidiary Freeform in the US, and on Netflix in the UK — was cancelled last week, with just 12 more episodes left to show including two episodes which will tie up all the loose ends. The series is based on The Mortal Instruments, a series of young adult novels by author Cassandra Clare. Although Clare — real name Judith Rumelt — did not originally intend to write the books for a young adult audience — she ended up pitching them to that readership after being approached to make her teenage characters older, and deciding not to. The decision paid off, with the series proving enormously popular — the first book in the series, City Of Bones, reached number eight on the New York Times bestseller list in
P erhaps most sane readers would give up on a series as flawed as The Mortal Instruments, but my obsessive compulsive finish-every-series-you-start-disorder forced me to continue. Hence, this is not just a review of City of Heavenly Fire but the whole series and what it has culminated in. Clary and the gang must of course go and stop this themselves in the Mystery Machine whoops, wrong franchise! In City of Heavenly Fire, Clary spent almost the entire book stuck on a sort of loop.

Publishers Weekly commented that it "is a sprawling urban fantasy packed with just about every type of creature known to the genre".
