Sinopsis

Simon Lewis has been a human and a vampire, and now he is becoming a Shadowhunter. But the events of City of Heavenly Fire left him stripped of his memories, and Simon isn’t sure who he is anymore. He knows he was friends with Clary, and that he convinced the total goddess Isabelle Lightwood to go out with him…but he doesn’t know how. And when Clary and Isabelle look at him, expecting him to be a man he doesn’t remember…Simon can’t take it.

So when the Shadowhunter Academy reopens, Simon throws himself into this new world of demon-hunting, determined to find himself again. His new self. Whomever this new Simon might be.

But the Academy is a Shadowhunter institution, which means it has some problems. Like the fact that non-Shadowhunter students have to live in the basement. And that differences—like being a former vampire—are greatly looked down upon. At least Simon is trained in weaponry—even if it’s only from hours of playing D&D.

Join Simon 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. These ten short stories give an epilogue to the Mortal Instruments series and provide glimpses of what’s in store in the Dark Artifices.



'Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy' continúa la historia de 'Ciudad de Fuego Celestial', de la saga de los Instrumentos Mortales. El protagonista de este libro es Simon, que, tras todos los acontecimientos de la saga anteriormente nombrada, decide apuntarse a la academia de los cazadores de sombras para, tras dos años de entrenamiento, beber de la copa mortal y convertirse en cazador de sombras.
'Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy' continues the story of 'City of Heavenly Fire' from the Mortal Instruments saga. The protagonist of this book is Simon, who, after all the events of the saga previously named, decides to join the academy of shadowhunters to, after two years of training, drink from the mortal cup and become a shadowhunter.

El libro trata sobre las aventuras de Simon en la academia, y de su búsqueda de si mismo. Me gustó mucho ver una versión tan vulnerable y enamorada de Isabelle. Por supuesto, como no podía ser de otra manera, nuestro querido Magnus Bane también aparece en este libro. La familia Lightwood se reúne por una buena (y totalmente inesperada) causa que cambia las vidas de Alec y Magnus por completo.
The book is about the adventures of Simon in the academy. I really enjoyed seeing a vulnerable and in love version of Isabelle. Of course, as it couldn't be otherwise, our beloved Magnus Bane also appears in this book. The Lightwood family reunites for a good (and totally unexpected) cause that changes the lives of Alec and Magnus completely.

Este libro hace también una crítica al racismo (en la relación entre cazadores de sombras y subterráneos) y al clasismo (en la relación entre cazadores de sombras y mundanos).
This book also criticizes racism (in the relationship between shadowhunters and downworlders) and classism (in the relation between shadowhunters and mundanes).

Es un libro muy entretenido, en el final ocurre algo inesperado y triste, pero me ha gustado mucho, y si os han gustado las anteriores sagas de Cazadores de Sombras este libro sin duda os va a gustar.
It's a very entertaining book, at the end something unexpected and sad happens, but I liked it a lot, and if you liked the previous Shadowhunters sagas you'll surely like this book.
