Cassandra Clare shares a guide to ‘Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy’

We sure are having a busy week in our Shadowhunter fandom! Cassandra Clare just took to her tumblr to share summaries for all of the 10 Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy ebooks and also answered two questions regarding ‘TSA’:

Cat was kind enough to give me the heads up that pages to buy the first seven novellas of Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, along with summaries, have been posted on Amazon. So here I give you the masterlist, 1-10, with short summaries.

About Tales from The Shadowhunter Academy.

Simon Lewis never thought he’d become a Shadowhunter…and now he has the chance. Ten novellas, each released as an individual e-book over the course of ten months, make up Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy. The series will launch with one story a month beginning in February 2015 with:

Story 1: Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy.
After living as a Mundane and a Vampire, Simon never thought he would become a Shadowhunter, but today he begins his training at Shadowhunter Academy.

2) The Lost Herondale: Simon learns the worst crime a Shadowhunter can commit: desertion of their comrades. In the early nineteenth century, Tobias Herondale abandoned his fellow Shadowhunters in the heat of battle and left them to die. His life was forfeit, but Tobias never returned, and the Clave claimed his wife’s life in exchange for Tobias’s. Simon and his fellow students are shocked to learn of this brutality, especially when it is revealed the woman was pregnant. But what if the child survived…could there be a lost Herondale line out in the world today?

3) The Whitechapel Fiend

Simon learns the truth behind the Jack the Ripper murders—“Jack” was stopped by Will Herondale, his former parabatai, and his institute of Victorian Shadowhunters.

4) Nothing But Shadows: Simon challenges the setup of the Shadowhunter Academy and in doing so learns the story of James Herondale and Matthew Fairchild and the unusual way that they became friends and parabatai.

5) The Evil We Love : The story of Valentine’s Circle at the Shadowhunter Academy.

6) Pale Kings and Princes : Simon has an encounter with Downworlders and is reprimanded for not following the rules for Academy students interacting with Downworlders. A story within a story: Andrew Blackthorn, while a student at the Academy, becomes enthralled by a faerie and has two children with her: Mark and Helen.

7) Bitter of Tongue : When faeries kidnap Simon he encounters a member of the Wild Hunt, the former Shadowhunter Mark Blackthorn.

8) The Fiery Trial : Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn become parabatai. Simon and Clary both act as their witnesses, so they can see what a parabatai bond forming looks like as they want to become parabatai as soon as Simon graduates — and because Emma asked Clary. The ritual goes unexpectedly …

9) Born to Endless Night:  Simon, like the rest of the Academy, is stunned when a navy-skinned warlock baby is found on the Academy steps. They hand the child over to guest lecturer Magnus Bane, who has to bring a child home… temporarily, of course… to his man!

10) Angels Twice Descending: Someone lives and someone dies at Simon’s Ascension ceremony.

Cassie, by the Angel! How is Tobias Herondale related to Edmund who was born in the 1830s? Will we find out in The Last Herondale or do we have to wait until The Wicked Powers? Please picture Loki’s “Tell me” gif here. I am so, so excited for more Simon and more Herondales! Just because Tobias was worse than Stephen doesn’t mean that future (maybe same generation as Jace) Herondales are! — catreadsbooks

Well, Tobias could have been maligned! Who can say? Herondales, they’re either awesome or awesomely terrible. All I can tell you is that you will find out who the Lost Herondale is before The Wicked Powers.

Yes, it will.

😉 We’re super excited about Shadowhunter Academy and we hope you are too!

I think it’s safe to say that we’re also super excited and cannot wait for Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy!

  1. OMG!! The Fiery Trial!! Yay!!

    If the child in Born of Endless Night isn’t adopted by Magnus and Alec, I will write a long, angry letter. It will be more like a novel.

    • It’s seems like a lot of lose stories put in a book together, but the baby is one I will keep my eye on. Though I feel sad there seems to be no Magnus and Alec wedding story and a baby seems a bit too soon to me, since that story will take place not a year after they get back together and I never felt their issues were totally solved. But i’m hoping the story will be done justice and it’s not just some fangirl bullshit, so the Malec fans can’t complain. (since that was done a lot after CoHF)

      • me-sjoukje // October 19, 2014 at 9:29 AM //

        if it’s not done right, I will happily join you in writing a novel of complaints and rants.

  3. WILL HERONDALE. MY PERFECT WILL HERONDALE. (Though my boyfriend is Julian.)

  4. the child better be adopted by Magnus and Alec……BY THE ANGEL i soooooooooooooo cant ait to read these!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XD

  5. Ebook?
    How about paperback edition?

    • “Do you know if The Tales of the Shadowhunter Academy will be out in print edition like The Bane Chronicles?
      Yes, it will.”
      The Bane Chronicles will be a print edition and the US hardcover as well as the UK paperback will be released on November 11. The same will happened to Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy.

  6. OMG tobias herondale??!!?? The man with that name should be the most perfect person alive, not a traitor. Come on, Cassie, don’t you read other YA novels, like DIVERGENT?!

  7. Well, of course Will and Jem stop Jack the Ripper. Those two are just too awesome.
    I wonder if that story will be pre-Tessa…

  8. WAIT WAIT WAIT on the whitechapel fiend are they implying that Jem is jack the ripper?

  9. Can’t wait for Born to Endless Night…

    *shipping malec*

    I hope so much that they adopt the baby ^^

  10. will is be available in paper back or hard cover ? Because I don’t like the Ebooks, I love to hold a book and read it that way

    • Yes, it’ll be just like The Bane Chronicles. The ebooks will come first and then a physical copy with all the stories will be released. Check out the first article on TMI Source, we got the first two covers this week!
