Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy is a good book by the authors Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson, Robin Wasserman.
Simon Lewis’s adventures as he trains to become a Shadowhunter are available for the first time with an all-star storyteller cast!
Simon Lewis was once a human and a vampire, and now he is becoming a Shadowhunter. The events of the Heavenly Fire City left him stripped of his memories, and Simon wasn’t sure who he was anymore. When Shadowhunter Academy reopens, Simon plunges into this new world of demon hunting, determined to find himself again. Whoever this new Simon might be.
But the Academy was a Shadowhunter organization, which meant it had some problems. Like the non-Shadowhunter students living in the basement. At least Simon has been trained in weapons – even if it’s only from hours of D&D play.
Join Simon on his journey to become a Shadowhunter and learn about the Academy’s illustrious history through guest instructors like Jace Herondale, Tessa Gray, and Magnus Bane. Written by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson and Robin Wasserman, these touching and hilarious short stories are perfect for fans who can’t watch enough Shadowhunters.
Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy is an anthology of short stories or novels that delve deeper into the Dark World. It follows Simon’s time at Shadowhunter Academy but is rife with fascinating extras. Overall, this is a highly entertaining installment in The Chronicles of Shadowhunters and I definitely recommend reading it before the Dark Artifacts series. Please don’t read this review if you haven’t read the Hell Devices or Mortal Instruments series as there will be plot points covered.
The first novel is Welcome to the Shadowhunter Academy, where Simon decides that he wants to be a Shadowhunter. After losing his memories, Simon must decide who he wants to be – a mortal who doesn’t remember the Dark World or a future Shadowhunter who might regain some of his memories. He meets a group of students, both Shadowhunters and regulars who will be with him for the next two years as they train to become true Shadowhunters. While we’ve known these characters less time than we’ve come to love in other series, they’re still lovable and well-developed.
Although this book focuses on Simon, there are many appearances from other core characters of the Shadowhunter series (such as Jace, Alec, Magnus, Clary, Izzy, and more). There is also an introduction of new characters as students who are also in the academy with Simon. All new characters are richly described and make the story realistic.
I like that in addition to learning about Simon’s experiences, we also get more information about what happened to the other characters in Simon’s past and what they’ve been up to since the end of the last book.
