Cassie, will there be a whole new cover for The Bane Chronicles’ print edition? — addictedtothese

Here it is! Magnus’ pretty face, revealed in honor of the release of the last of the Bane Chronicles, The Course of True Love (And First Dates)  which details Magnus’ first date with Alec, and how it went horribly wrong and then oh so right. :)

The print edition will release in November, and has a special bonus mini-story in it as a reward for those who had to wait for print. :) It also contains interstitial comics drawn by Cassandra Jean!

Maureen and Sarah and I had a blast working on the Bane Chronicles. It was a fun, fantastic experience filled with terrible green jokes about Ragnor, sexy audiobook readers, and of course, lots of time spent with Magnus, which is always a good thing. Thanks so much to everyone for your support of TBC!

A Guide to Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy

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!

DEVON BOSTICK TO NARRATE WELCOME TO SHADOWHUNTER ACADEMY

SARAH: Jasper from the 100! I’m so excited! I love the 100.

CASSIE: I know, score. *fistbump*

SARAH: My FAVORITE Jasper scene from the 100 was when Jasper hugs Bellamy.

CASSIE: Don’t remember that scene…

SARAH: Bellamy saved his life and Jasper hugged him so tightly!

CASSIE: Oh, sure. And then Bellamy swept him up in his arms and dramatically shut the spaceship door and who knows what happened inside… Why do you always make stuff up?

SARAH: I never make stuff up!

CASSIE: You told me there was a novel where Mr Darcy was a Navy SEAL.

SARAH: In a better world, that would’ve been true!

CASSIE: You can’t make up saucy stuff about our audiobook readers, Rees Brennan. I’m watching you. Watching you!

… Anyway, we are so thrilled, both because we watch and love the 100, and because Devon Bostick does such a great job as Jasper: a nerdy guy who loves a lady who loves another… yet who is extremely brave, kind, and valiantly rescues his team when they are in trouble. (Sound familiar?)

So we are sure he will be a perfect fit for our introduction to Simon Lewis, Shadowhunter in training: in some ways a different guy to the guy we knew—the guy he became—through the Mortal Instruments. We lost that guy, the TMI characters lost that guy, Simon himself lost that guy… and now Simon has to work out if he can get him back.

Plus we get to see how Shadowhunters are trained, with knife throwing, horse riding, good-lookin’ fellow students, terrifying teachers, and guest lecturer Isabelle Lightwood…

We hope you’re excited for what we and Devon Bostick have in store for you.
