Publisher's Summary

Ten Simon Lewis tales read by:

  • Devon Bostick
  • Jack Falahee

  • Torrance Coombs

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.

    "I don't want the series to end! I love her books!"

    She has such a way of writing that makes you feel like you are the characters. Like you can feel what they feel! I wish the series would never stop and would love to see it revisit the New York institute with all the same characters and their new stories.

    Story
    "A nice glimpse into Simon's swiss cheese memory"
    What did you love best about Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy?

    I like Simon as he is. Hes a nerd, and its funny. More so because hes so awkward and misunderstood by others. Its just his personality that remains consistent which is nice.


    What other book might you compare Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy to and why?

    This is really unlike all the other books, because they are just small glimpses on what happened while he was in the academy.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    To be honest, I was annoyed with all the readers. Why does this book have a bajillion readers? And then after some thought, maybe it has so many readers to illustrate Simon remembering who he was and slowly going back to his own self? Even if that's not the case, I'd like to believe that's why. It made me spin something I was annoyed with made me enjoy the different perspectives Simon had remembering flashes of memo

    Story
    "It made me laugh and cry . . . love this series."

    I laughed when George said "we're only bros" to Izzy. I cried when Simon chose his shadowhunter name. and when Jessamine came to get George. I love how all these lives are so intertwined.

    "Entertaining stories & narrators"

    So much fun! I was reluctant to read these since they were not all written be Cassandra Clare. But they were great. These stories were so entertaining. Funny, insightful, and touching. I always loved Simon and now I love him even more.

    Story
    "Mixture of Emotions"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy to be better than the print version?

    I read alongside with print version so it makes no difference to me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Finding out what happened after the events of City of Heavenly Fire


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I mostly loved narrators from story 6-10 because I was familiar with their acting careers and enjoyed how well they did as narrators. Not that great from male to female voices but none bored me. Each did very well with George's Scottish accent.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I enjoyed the 9th story the most but the ending of the book was very emotional.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved it
