Happy release day to ‘Nothing but Shadows’

Happy release day to Nothing but Shadows! The fourth installment of Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy was written by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan and deals with being different at the Academy. It also features several characters from Cassie’s The Last Hours and a grumpy warlock.

Furthermore, Nico Mirallegro from My Mad Fat Diary was announced as the narrator of the audiobook which will be released next week:

Nothing But Shadows is out Tuesday, and for some of you it’s already Tuesday! The story of James Herondale at Shadowhunter Academy, starring a little Will, a little Simon, a little Matthew, a little everyone…Sarah and I hope you like.

Nothing But Shadows.

Excerpt:

“Oh, young Mr Herondale.” The dean looked quite happy to be interrupted. “Of course, let me show you the way. Your father entrusted me with a message for you which I can relay as we go.”

She left Ragnor Fell scowling after them. James hoped he had not made another enemy.

“Your father said—what a charming language Welsh is, isn’t it? So romantic!—Pob lwc, a charaid. What does it mean?”

James blushed, because he was much too old for his father to be calling him by pet names. “It just means—it means good luck.”

He could not help smiling as he trailed the dean down the halls. He was sure nobody else’s father had charmed the dean into giving a student a secret message. He felt warm, and watched over.

Until Dean Ashdown opened the door of his new room, bid him a cheerful goodbye, and left him to his horrible fate.

It was a very nice room, airy, with walnut bedposts and white linen canopies. There was a carved wardrobe and even a bookcase.

There was also a distressing amount of Matthew Fairchild.

He was standing in front of a table that had about fifteen hairbrushes on it, several mysterious bottles, and a strange hoard of combs.

“Hullo, Jamie,” he said. “Isn’t it splendid that we are sharing a room? I am certain we will get along swimmingly.”

“James,” James said. “What are all those hairbrushes for?”

Matthew looked at him pityingly. “You don’t think all this—” he indicated his head with a sweeping gesture—“happens on its own?”

“I only use one hairbrush.”

“Yes,” Matthew observed. “I can tell.”

You can find two more snippets here and here.

Due to the time difference between the States and Europe, I’ve already read Nothing but Shadows and I urge you to buy the ebook. The characters from The Last Hours are very loveable and we are reunited with Will Herondale *swoons* and ‘Uncle Jem’.

Happy reading, Shadowhunters!

The next ebook – The Evil We Love – will be released on June 16.

You don’t actually need an iPad, Kindle or Nook to read Nothing but Shadows. If you have an Amazon account, you can download the free Kindle Reading Apps for smartphones, computers or tablets.

Amazon US/Amazon UK/Amazon Germany/Amazon Canada/Amazon France/Amazon Spain/Amazon Italy/Amazon Australia/Amazon Brasil/Amazon India/Amazon Japan/Amazon China

When all the ebooks are published, the book will be released in print format (just like the Bane Chronicles).
