Review: Bitter of Tongue by Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan (Tales from Shadowhunter Academy #7)


(from goodreads)

When Simon is kidnapped by the fey, he’s amazed to find a friend in former Shadowhunter Mark Blackthorn. One of ten adventures in Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy.

After Simon is kidnapped by faeries (why is he always kidnapped?), he uncovers rumors of a secret weapon Sebastian left behind for the faerie queen. He must escape the Fey, relying on his only ally, former Shadowhunter and Dark Artifices character Mark Blackthorn.

This standalone e-only short story follows the adventures of Simon Lewis, star of the #1 New York Times bestselling series, The Mortal Instruments, as he trains to become a Shadowhunter. Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy features characters from Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments, the Infernal Devices, and the upcoming Dark Artifices and Last Hours series. Bitter of Tongue is written by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan.

Read more of Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunter Chronicles in The Infernal Devices, The Mortal Instruments, and The Bane Chronicles.

I love these novellas. Simon was always one of my favourite characters in the Mortal Instruments series and I just love getting to read more about him. Each novella brings us a new insight into the Shadowhunters' world.

I think that the fact that Simon was a mundane than a downworlder is really helpful for him to understand how nothing is always the same. Not all shadownhunters are the same, not all downworlders are the same and faeries aren't always what they seem.

There's evil everywhere, but there's also good and I think that Simon's path to become a Shadowhunter is going to show changes are needed in this world; for better or worse.

Simon is really a good guy and I love how he always try to be equal to everyone and I'm really excited for the next stories to come.

I just love that there are cameos from characters we love and I need to read about Alec and Simon talking; it needs to happen soon.
