Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult
My Rating: 3 stars
Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy is a companion series of novellas to The Mortal Instruments . It follows Simon as he trains to become a shadowhunter. This short story includes his arrival in the Academy and the first days of his training.
I wasn’t a big fan of this story. The writing felt off and not like Cassandra Clare’s at all. Simon’s inner monologue didn’t sound like him and everything felt rushed. An incident that happened towards the end seemed quite ridiculous to me.
Still, i’m not too put out by this as it was only the first installment in this series. I’m excited to continue with the rest and hope its better.
