eh...

just not enough happening in these short books
I like the idea of Simon. becoming shadow hunter, ;but these three books just don't give enough of a story. it would have been better if they wrote one book, although even then they'd have to pick up Tue story and move things along.

Interesting story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Listening this book wa something very nice. Meeting again Tessa and Jace was diferente, since this story is about Simon. I like this book.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I like the way this stories are written. I think very cool the fact that the author mix characters from two series that complement each other and at the same time are independent of each other. So,in my opinion, the end couldn't be diferente or anything else.

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked the way the pratice exercise was describe.This series is just a parallel to the main series. I do not know who has the potential to be life itself.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

I don't think so. This is a

Great story bad narration

So I am a huge fan of Cassandra Clare and Maureen Johnson. I have to say I have been waiting for a Jack the Riper Shadowhunter story. This story was great, but the narration was bad. I had a hard time figuring out who was talking. In my opinion everyone sounds the same.

Not enough actually about Simon.

I wish that would have gone into more detail about what Simon is actually doing and his experiences at the academy.
