Publisher's Summary

Inside you'll listen to:

  • A cinematic tutorial on why the best friend (Simon) always loses out to the bad boy (Jace)
  • The benefits (no, really!) of incest...at least in literature
  • What we can read between the lines of Alec and Magnus’ European vacation
  • The importance of friendship, art, humor, and rebellion

And more, from the virtues of Downworlders to the naughty side of Shadowhunting. Number-one New York Times best-selling author Cassandra Clare created the Mortal Instruments in 2004 with City of Bones (Simon & Schuster, 2007). Since then, the series has grown to five books, with a sixth due in 2014, and been joined by two spinoff trilogies and an upcoming film starring Jamie Campbell Power and Lily Collins.

Featuring stories by Holly Black, Kendare Blake, Gwenda Bond, Sarah Rees Brennan, Rachel Caine, Sarah Cross, Kami Garcia, Michelle Hodkin, Kelly Link, Kate Milford, Diana Peterfreund, Sara Ryan, Scott Tracey, and Robin Wasserman.

    "I adore this collection!"

    This amalgamation of essays is truly amazing and so endearing! Each one touches ona vastly different topic, yet they all tie in so perfectly. All revolving around the plot, characters and sheer brilliance of the Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series!

    "HUGE waste of time!"

    Super boring. I really wish I had not spent money on this. for me it was a huge waste of time.
    When I bought this I was expecting more info about the characters not a college like lecture.

    "A great analysis"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend this book to fans of, and those who are interested in an analysis of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The narrators did a great job of getting the point of view of the authors across to the reader. I also enjoyed the fact that there were multiple narrators for this book.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is sold at a good price and worth it. I bought this to complete my Cassandra Clare collection. I don't usually enjoy analyses of books but this was an enjoyable insight into the shadowhunter and downworlder stories.

    "Dreadful not worth the money"
    What would have made Shadowhunters and Downworlders better?

    Some real insight
    I have really enjoyed the books and thought it would be interesting to get a bit more background - this book did not deliver


    What was most disappointing about Cassandra Clare (editor)’s story?

    School type essays - nothing new revealed, just others thoughts on the book


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Narration excellent - best bit


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Total waste of money - audible has produced better freebies e.g interviews with the author than this

    "Very Disappointed"
    What would have made Shadowhunters and Downworlders better?

    I have totally enjoyed all Cassandra Clare's books of the Mortal Instruments and have all of them but this Shadow Hunters was not what i was expecting when i purchased it with one of my audible credits i feel rather cheated with it the whole book is like a documentary about how Cassandra put together the whole series of books of the Mortal Instruments I was looking forward to a follow up to the last book and now all i feel is disappointed with the Author and i fail to understand the need to write this book if i wanted to know more about ruins and tattoo's i would Google it


    What was most disappointing about Cassandra Clare (editor)’s story?

    I said it all above there was no need to do this book any one of her reader could have Googled the information if they had wanted to know certain things a waste of time and money and i feel disappointed by it


    How could the performance have been better?

    Cassandra did not have to waste her time writing it her time would have been much better spent writing another follow up to the Mortal Instruments which i truelly enjoyed every one of them


    What character would you cut from Shadowhunters and Downworlders?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    Disappointed
