The New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling collection of short stories chronicling the adventures of Simon Lewis as he trains to become a Shadowhunter is now available in print with ten brand-new comic illustrations!

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. Written by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson, and Robin Wasserman, these moving and hilarious short stories are perfect for the fan who just can’t get enough of the Shadowhunters.

    More nuggets of information not fully explained in the main books. As with the Bane Chronicles, this book gives more insight to the stories hinted at but not told on the other books. Loved seeing Simon grow into the character that is in the newer books.

    This is a collection of short stories from the world of the Shadowhunters. I would not suggest reading this anthology if you have not read The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare because certain stories won't make as much sense unless you have the background information to the tales. Clare has several series in The Shadowhunter world. Its best to read them in this order: The Infernal Devices which starts with Clockwork Angel. The Mortal Instruments: starts with City of Bones, and the newest, The Dark Artifices: starts with Lady Midnight. I usually like series based anthologies but the way this one went it should have been a novella, or even a connective bridge novel between The Mortal Instruments and The Dark Artifices. Its not really a collection of short stories in the sense of an anthology. All the stories connect to Simon's time at The Shadowhunter academy or to what is going on at the academy at this time. It would have read better as one tale. The stories aren't bad, but they could have been so much more. The opportunity to enrich the Shadowhunter world was sadly wasted. All the reader gets is some glimpses of academy life and some of that is no surprise. Even the other tales not related to the academy life, could have been so much more. For example, Jack the Ripper could have been much better, and make a little more sense in why the murders were done. At least Simon's story gets completed enough to satisfy fans of the Mortal Instruments. Some of the tales even connect into The Dark Artifices series. Yes, I would suggest this gets read before the Dark Artifices series, but don't expect a really great and entertaining read.
