Publisher's Summary

Ten Simon Lewis tales read by:

  • Devon Bostick
  • Jack Falahee
  • Luke Pasqualino
  • Nico Mirallegro
  • Chris Wood
  • Ki Hong Lee
  • Torrance Coombs
  • Sam Heughan

The New York Times and USA Today best-selling collection of short stories chronicling the adventures of Simon Lewis as he trains to become a Shadowhunter is now available for the first time with an all-star cast of narrators!

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.

Full cast of narrators includes Torrance Coombs, Sam Heughan, Keahu Kahuanui, and Brett Dalton.

    "Great narration and story about Shadowhunters"

    I listened to the audio of Shadowhunters. And I don’t know how Cassandra Clare managed it, but she wrangled some seriously famous actors (well, famous to me at least!) to narrate the ten tales. And each narrator brought their own flare and style to the books. Some of my favorites include: Devon Bostick, Luke Pasqualino, Keahu Kahuanui, Brett Dalton, and of course Sam Heughan.
    While I enjoyed all ten tales, I really appreciated how the tales were interconnected, and provided us with both modern Shadowhunter stories as well as historic tales. It’s not practical to review all ten tales; here are some individual reviews. My favorite of the collection was Born to Endless Night, written by Ms. Clare and Ms. Rees Brennan. In this tale, Magnus and Alec decide to adopt a baby warlock. The baby shows up on the doorstep of the academy where Magnus is guest-lecturing. Of the two, Alec takes to adopting the baby first. And let’s just say that Magnus making a bottle for the baby was totally swoony. I don’t really know what this tale had to do with Simon, but I also don’t really care. This was also the tale where I realized I picture the actors from the TV series as the characters.
    Another favorite tale is Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy, also by Ms. Clare and Ms. Rees Breenan. (I think I see a pattern here!) This story is hilarious and all Simon. Who else would pack nothing but funny t-shirts when going off to Idris to learn to be a Shadowhunter. The scene with the girls and talking about when Simon bit Jace had me literally laughing at my desk at work.

    “I might have bitten him. It was more like a tiny nibble.”

    “Was he delicious”, Julie asked? “He looks like he would be delicious.”

    And Izzy staking her claim on Simon? Just as great. Excellent narration by Devon Bostick. And a great start to a compilation book.

    Pale Kings and Princes by Ms. Clare and Ms. Wasserman was one of my least favorite of the collection. This tale focuses on the history of the Blackthorn family, specifically Mark and Helen. Most of which I learned from reading Lady Midnight. This tale emphasized for me the fact that I really should have read the books in publication order. All the questions I had reading Lady Midnight were answered here. It would have made much more sense to have read Shadowhunter Academy first.

    Across the board, I really enjoyed all of the tales. And especially the audio narration. If you appreciate Simon’s sense of humor and are interested in more Shadowhunter history, check out Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy!

    "Revisiting Beloved Characters"

    I really enjoyed this collection. The stories were wonderful. The only drawback was the narration of the final chapters by Brett Dalton. I found it more difficult to discern which character was speaking and missed hearing the Scottish brogue of George's character that had been consistent until that point. Overall, I loved having more stories involving the Mortal Instruments' characters.

    "Good companion piece"

    This book is a good companion to the Mortal Instruments and Clockwork devices. Even touches on the Blackthorn family. The best part is Magnus, though - isn't it always?

    "Narrated by 6 people"

    Narrated by 6 people makes it really annoying. Having a new voice 6 times for each character is a horrible idea.

    "Interesting enough"

    I thot this was mainly about Simon, however, there were multiple "stories" that were told that didn't include Simon & felt like only 2/3 or 1/2 of the novel was actually about Simon in the Academy. A lil disappointing. *Spoiler* Also they made it completely obvious who they were going to kill off. I called it long bfr the end & don't think it was necessary to end on a negative note. I also wish they would discuss how to state certain words/names bc there r readers that say them differently & that can be kind of a distraction. I enjoyed hearing more about Simon tho.

    Story
    "I always love these books"

    I really enjoyed reading these books because Simon has always been one of my favorite characters and it was nice for him to have a whole series. However, I gave the story a 4 star because of the ending which I am very upset about and will remain upset for the rest of the day haha. Also I gave the performance a 4 because I didn't like how there was a different reader for each small story, it was a bit confusing. I also wished there had been less readers who had a British accent ( this is not against the readers because I normally love British accents), but I don't think it fit since Simon is from Brooklyn and it's from his perspective. That's just my opinion though, and overall I would definitely recommend this book, especially if you love the rest of the immortal instruments books!
