Shadowhunters Author: 'I Hate to See the Fandom Split' Over Books vs. Show

Shadowhunters Fan War

Cassandra Clare‘s reasoning skills would prove useful at the next Clave meeting.

The author of the Mortal Instruments books — upon which Freeform’s Shadowhunters is based — took to Twitter on Monday to suppress what she calls an “unnecessary war” brewing between fans of the novels and fans of the show.

Employing the hashtag #ShadowhuntersFandomUnited, Clare insisted that she has a “good relationship” with the entire cast and crew of Shadowhunters, including showrunner Ed Decter and executive producer McG. Furthermore, she insists that “authors do not resent or compete with adaptations of their work.”
