Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan



Simon Lewis never thought he’d become a Shadowhunter…and now he has the chance. One of ten adventures in Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy.After living as a Mundane and a Vampire, Simon never thought he would become a Shadowhunter, but today he begins his training at Shadowhunter Academy.This standalone e-only short story follows the adventures of Simon Lewis, star of the #1 New York Times bestselling 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. Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy is written by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan.


This story offered a different kind of perspective from Simon. I wouldn’t say all too serious, he still has that funny quality in him that everyone can’t get enough of, but I guess a more mature Simon? He is practically on the verge of finding his true purpose in life. Well in this case, why he wants to be a shadowhunter.

It’s naïve to even think that when he ascends he’ll instantly remember the old Simon, but he was right in saying to Isabelle that by then he’d already had made new memories from training in the Shadowhunter Academy. As Simon’s new found friend, George, points out, they all want to be a hero. In this series we will witness them in their journey to become one.

Although Isabelle believes with all her heart that old Simon will be back, I find that difficult to see. I think all the memories will come back but not the old Simon. Not the Simon that Isabelle and I fell inlove with, but a different Simon, and I can’t wait to see that Simon. I am all for a new Simon. I will love Simon either way. I loved him when he was a vampire, a daylighter, and when he becomes a shadowhunter, I will still love him no less. (deranged fangirl mode on)

I’m glad that a George was written to be Simon’s friend, plus he’s perfect! They’re perfect for each other, they know what makes each other crack up.

He’s already popular in the Academy, will he be like the champion of the dregs after standing up to those shadowhunter brats? That would make a nice story but we all know too well how common a plot line that is, but Cassandra Clare… so everything’s bound to be awesome in the end!
