Overview

The New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling collection of short stories chronicling the adventures of Simon Lewis as he trains to become a Shadowhunter is now available in print for the first time with ten brand-new comic illustrations!

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.

Booklist
A great read for fantasy fans who want to be completely immersed in a different world.
VOYA, December 2016 (Vol. 39, No. 5) - Sean Rapacki
Those who have been following the Mortal Instruments series know that Simon Lewis, a teen from Brooklyn, has had his share of adventures: he has been a vampire, has helped save the world, and has gone out with Isabelle, one of the most revered and beautiful Shadowhunters. Now he is back to being human, a “mundane,” and amnesia has rendered him a stranger to both his adventures and his friends. The only way he can see to once again become the person so important to Clary, Jace, and, yes, Isabelle is to train as a Shadowhunter and find the hero within. This hefty tome of short stories reads like well-written fan fiction, not only filling in the blanks on what happens to Simon after saving the world but also illuminating the past of other prominent characters in the series and detailing the history of Shadowhunters. Clare has assembled a group of ringers, three of the most talented authors writing supernatural fiction for teens, to assist with this collection, which will no doubt please fans of Clare’s series. Reviewer: Sean Rapacki; Ages 11 to 18.

Ten previously published short stories take Simon from amnesia to Ascension.After losing both his memory and his vampirism at the climax of City of Heavenly Fire (2014), Simon Lewis can't bear to be around the nigh-strangers who were once his best friend, his Shadowhunter allies, and his girlfriend, Isabelle. What better way for Simon to regain his lost life than to attend demon-fighting school, prepare to drink from the Mortal Cup, and hope Ascension grants him both phenomenal cosmic powers and his lost memories? Over the course of two years, the white, Jewish Simon goes from being a gangly nerd to someone who fits in among the "near perfect specimen[s] of humanity" who are his classmates. Though Simon builds a social network among both Shadowhunter and mundane students, the institution itself never becomes any less stunningly discriminatory (the mundanes, as "dregs," live in the slime- and rat-infested basements, for instance), making Simon's efforts feel futile. Simon himself measures his own improvement by gaining enough bulk to "trade in his ladies'-sized gear for a men's size." With chapters originally published as individual e-books over the course of 2015, this compilation shows its seams; the characters and setting are reintroduced every 60-odd pages. Stuffed with cameos from nearly every character of note from the Shadowhunter universe, there's not even enough room here for fan service. (Fantasy. 12-15)
