Synopsis

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson, Robin Wasserman

An illustrated hardback of ten stories about Simon Lewis, star of Cassandra Clare's internationally bestselling series The Mortal Instruments, as he trains to become a Shadowhunter. With a bonus pull-out poster.

Simon has been a human and a vampire, but after the events of City of Heavenly Fire left him stripped of his memories, he isn't sure who he is any more. When the Shadowhunter Academy reopens, Simon throws himself into this new world of demon-hunting, determined to find himself again. Whomever this Simon might be...Join him 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.

The series features characters from Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments, Infernal Devices, Dark Artifices and the upcoming Last Hours series.

****Calling all fans of the Mortal Instruments series! Netflix is showing the TV adaptation of the books in a series called Shadowhunters.

Gill Evans, fiction publisher of Walker Books, said: “Cassie’s many fans in the UK and other international territories have been waiting eagerly to hear news of the Shadowhunters TV series. We’re delighted that Netflix will be showing it so soon after the US release, so that existing fans and a whole new audience can share in the excitement of this amazing series brought to live on TV.”
