We are less than a week away from the release of Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy – the first installment in Cassandra Clare’s co-written Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy series – and Entertainment Weekly has shared not one but two covers with us! They also posted an official description which sounds super cool.
Have a look at the cover:
And here is the new description:
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. Simon Lewis has been many things. A mundane. A vampire. A hero. But Simon can’t remember any of that. His memories of adventures with Clary, Isabelle, and the rest of the New York Shadowhunters were erased by a demon, and now Simon is eager to reclaim that part of himself. But will he ever get back the parts of himself that he lost? Does he even want to?
Since Breia Brissey from EW seems to be a Shadowhunter just like us, we were also treated to the cover of The Lost Herondale (March 17):
The official description:
Simon learns about the worst thing a Shadowhunter can do: desert their comrades. In the early 19th century, Tobias Herondale abdandoned 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?
It looks like the covers of Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy and The Lost Herondale are just two-tenth of the final cover – just like it was the case with The Bane Chronicles. Each cover of the ensuing installments will fit together as puzzle pieces to compete the full cover of Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy.
We are so excited for more Simon and can’t wait to go on this adventure with him and other beloved characters from The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices!
Who else is counting down the days? 😀
