The Wicked Powers is a planned trilogy by Cassandra Clare. The fifth in the series chronologically, it is so far set to be the last and concluding series of The Shadowhunter Chronicles.[1][2][3][4][5][6] The title is derived from a Shadowhunter children's rhyme: "And bronze to summon wicked powers."
