Book Review: Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra and Clare Sarah Rees Brennan

Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy (Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, #1)


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.
