Publisher's Summary

All evil starts somewhere, and Simon Lewis learns how The Circle - led by Valentine Morgenstern - began. One of 10 adventures in Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy.

The Shadowhunter Academy has only just reopened following the disastrous rise of the Circle. Now, the faculty can finally admit to what happened when Valentine was a student.

This standalone short story follows the adventures of Simon Lewis, star of the number-one New York Times best-selling series The Mortal Instruments, as he trains to become a Shadowhunter. Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy features characters from Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments, Infernal Devices, and the upcoming Dark Artifices and Last Hours series.

Nothing new about Valentine's story

What did you love best about The Evil We Love?

In my opinion, this story added nothing to the story already presented above. Not to mention that only reinforces the adolescent behavior to follow charismatic people unquestioningly

Would you be willing to try another book from Cassandra Clare and Robin Wasserman ? Why or why not?

Yes, because I think they can write good stories together.

Have you listened to any of Chris Wood’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

To be honest, I don't remember, but I liked his voice, his reading held by it is easy to understand for foreigners. He articulates well the words and to maintain a steady pace

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

No.

Any additional comments?

No.

Accents...

The narrator could not do accents very well,but otherwise great! The story focuses more on the past and had very little of George anyway.

The Circle Days and Sizzy Feels

Any additional comments?

We got to see Circle Era Robert Lightwood, his parabati Micheal Wayland, Valentine, and glimpses of Jocylen and Lucien. A wonderful story that gives you extra insight into the circle days, we also get some wonderful Sizzy moments!
