“The Fiery Trial” by Cassandra Clare and Maureen Johnson

I’m not entirely sure why I didn’t review this the second I finished it. It’s not like I’m swamped with uni work, or regular work for that matter. I think I just let time get away from me. The thing … Continue reading

“Born to Endless Night” by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan

“Born to Endless Night” was more like a chapter from The Mortal Instruments than it was an instalment of Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy. It bounced between perspectives, just like the main series does. We got a little Simon and a … Continue reading

“Bitter of Tongue” by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan

I have a policy. I never read something new while I’m in the middle of reading something else. I tried it once, when I was in high school, but I kept getting the stories crossed. Even though the stories couldn’t … Continue reading

“The Evil We Love” by Cassandra Clare and Robin Wasserman

I’ve started to completely ignore the “release dates” for these stories. The dates are either pushed back or they tell us that the dates are pushed back and they actually aren’t. Either way, my inbox tells me when a new Tales … Continue reading

“Nothing But Shadows” by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan

  Before I get into this particular story and its strengths and weaknesses, I just want to talk about the cover. Not only have the cover designers given Simon freckles, and so deciding NOT to give him perfect blemish-free skin, … Continue reading

“The Whitechapel Fiend” by Cassandra Clare and Maureen Johnson.

At present, I am reading a truly terrible novel called The Visitors. I can hear you asking me why I would bother with a terrible novel. The answer is quite simple: my mother lent it to me. And as such, I … Continue reading

“The Lost Herondale” by Cassandra Clare and Robin Wasserman

Ahh, the second Simon Lewis story. First off I’ve gotta say that I wish Amazon would get their shit together. For both of the Shadowhunter Academy stories released so far, I’ve received an email from Amazon saying that the release date of … Continue reading

  Guys, guys, it has finally happened. More Simon Lewis! More Shadowhunters to help tie us over until Lady Midnight is released (in 2016? I thought it was this year! No!!!). And to help distract us from the horrifying news that … Continue reading
