Cassandra Clare is getting back on the road.

The beloved best-selling fantasy author is set to go on tour this spring as she launches her brand-new trilogy The Last Hours, beginning with Chain of Gold, and EW has the exclusive on where she’ll be going, and when.

For fans of Clare’s, perhaps the most important bit of information with this new series is that it does fall under the Shadowhunters umbrella. Indeed, here’s the official synopsis:

“Cordelia Carstairs is a Shadowhunter, a warrior trained since childhood to battle demons. When her father is accused of a terrible crime, she and her brother travel to London in hopes of preventing the family’s ruin. Cordelia’s mother wants to marry her off, but Cordelia is determined to be a hero rather than a bride. Soon Cordelia encounters childhood friends James and Lucie Herondale and is drawn into their world of glittering ballrooms, secret assignations, and supernatural salons, where vampires and warlocks mingle with mermaids and magicians. All the while, she must hide her secret love for James, who is sworn to marry someone else.

“But Cordelia’s new life is blown apart when a shocking series of demon attacks devastate London. These monsters are nothing like those Shadowhunters have fought before — these demons walk in daylight, strike down the unwary with incurable poison, and seem impossible to kill. London is immediately quarantined. Trapped in the city, Cordelia and her friends discover that their own connection to a dark legacy has gifted them with incredible powers — and forced a brutal choice that will reveal the true cruel price of being a hero.”

Enough to get you excited? And of course, Clare has even more in the works. Below, see Clare’s scheduled tour stops. Chain of Gold publishes March 3 and is available for pre-order.
