Book Review: The Lost Herondale by Cassandra Clare and Robin Wasserman

The second novella in Tales from The Shadowhunter Academy 

98 pages

Published in 2015

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Sypnosis from Goodreads:

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? 
My Review:

I really enjoyed this one, it definitely gave a fascinating insight into Tobias Herondale and there was a little hint, well okay more than that, about another character possibly still lingering; I wonder if that will get explored in future novels? But regardless, I absolutely loved the interactions between Simon and Catarina, and Izzy and Clary’s appearances. Both definitely firmly helped Simon, I think; he’s still getting used to his patchy memories, and of course he feels bad about things, but I definitely think that Clary and Izzy have helped him in the long run, 

Even though I’m only two stories in, this has been so addictive so far and I can’t wait to see where the other stories take Simon and to see what familiar faces show up! 

And that concludes my review, until next time, happy reading,

Brooklyn 🙂
