    I have taught my two boys at home for the last 8 years. A love of literature of all kinds led me to Audible.

    Story
    "Where Friendships Are Made Into Legend"

    If you are reading this review you have probably been immersed in the tight web where Infernal Devices weaves itself into Mortal Instruments. You have loved the incredibly outspoken and hysterically funny Magnus Bane in the Magnus Bane Chronicles. You know the magic Cassandra Clare has with words and ideas.She has turned her attention to the heroic and loyal character, Simon, in these Shadowhunter stories and her skill does not disappoint.

    I was caught off guard by the power of this story. Mathew Fairchild made me laugh outright. Young James Carstaire made me cringe and tear up. Ragnor Fell made me love him for all of his bluff and gruff. Most of this short is written as a flashback or a story told by Katerina to Simon who is still adjusting to a life with limited memories. What better way for him to continue to find his way than to hear how the greats in the Shadowhunter world found theirs. Is there any better story than how a friendship began...especially if the friendship has unlikely roots? The brilliance in Clare's stories is that they are applicable, relevant, and deeply real. This story is about courage in the face of life changes that seem insurmountable and it is about taking personal risks. As an adult I still value insights along these lines and I find it immensely satisfying to glean these insights from an author with a keen sense of humor, a powerful sense of social justice, and a great talent in building characters who seem like real people. Thank you, Cassandra Clare, for continuing to wow me with your world.

    "Another great snippet about Simon"

    Jeez these are so good but over so fast! I need more!!! Assuming since this one was released on 06/01/15 and the new book series isn't out til 03/2016 that they will drag out the release of these short stories.

    "Bromance!"

    This book is seriously the very best of all the Tales from the Shadow Hunter Academy. The authors give us a glimpse of Shadow Hunter youth from centuries past and tell a tale so touching, you just can't help but love it. Nico Mirallegro is definitely the best narrator of all 10 stories as well... He needs to do more narration, great characterizations and emotional depth.

    "The best of the short stories so far!"

    This story is both hilarious and heartwarming. It's the shadowhunter world at it's best! I enjoyed the banter between the characters and hearing more about Will Herondale now as a father and not a lovestruck teen.
