New ‘Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy’ Snippet – Jace explains to Simon what their relationship was like before COHF…


So tomorrow is a big day in the Shadowhunter fandom.

We will be going back to New York to catch up with our favourite characters from The Mortal Instruments.

Yes that is right, the first novella in Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy is out tomorrow.

“Did I,” said Simon.

Jace clapped him on the shoulder. “Yeah, buddy. I remember it clearly.”

“Okay, whatever. The thing is … Alec’s always really quiet around me,” Simon said. “Is he just shy, or did I tick him off and I don’t remember it? I wouldn’t like to go away without trying to make things right.”

Jace’s expression took on that peculiar stillness again. “I’m glad you asked me that,” he said finally. “There is something more going on. The girls didn’t want me to tell you, but the truth is—”
