Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy

A companion to the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman

Description: Simon Lewis has been a human and a vampire, and now he is becoming a Shadowhunter. The events of City of Heavenly Fire left him stripped of his memories, and Simon isn’t sure who he is anymore. So when the Shadowhunter Academy reopens, Simon throws himself into this new world of demon-hunting, determined to find himself again. Whomever this new Simon might be. But the Academy is a Shadowhunter institution, which means it has some problems. Like the fact that non-Shadowhunter students have to live in the basement. At least Simon’s trained in weaponry—even if it’s only from hours of playing D&D. Join Simon on his journey to become a Shadowhunter, and learn about the Academy’s illustrious history along the way, through guest lecturers such as Jace Herondale, Tessa Gray, and Magnus Bane. These moving and hilarious short stories are perfect for the fan who just can’t get enough of the Shadowhunters.

Yes. Yes. Yes. All of the yes! I Always seem to forget how much I love this shadow world! Gah. I love being back in this story. You get to see so many characters you know and love and also get to meet some fun new characters (even if some of your favourite ones annoyingly die)… I forgot how many emotions Cassandra Clare makes you feel with her stories. Gosh dang it I cried at least ten times, and not even always at only sad parts. Jem! Oh my jem, you and your words never cease to make me lose my shit and start blubbering like a complete and total idiot! I loved seeing all the different stories of different peoples pasts and seeing them all flawlessly tie together into Simon’s own story, I’ll admit that Simon has never been my favourite character in these books. But this book made me love him so much more! None of the stories were boring or slow they all moved along at a nice pace and were all informative and enthralling.. Obviously though my favourite section was the Magnus/Alec section! The little blueberry part also made me sob. I could go on about this book probably for the next half hour but I feel like I’ve already raved enough.. so I’m just gonna say that if you’ve read the mortal instruments series and loved it then you need to read this book. Because it’s amazing and you won’t regret it! I feel sad that I haven’t read this book before now.

I rate this book
