This review is going to be short and sweet. Ready? This tale continues on with Simon’s time at the Shadowhunter Academy. The elite Shadowhunters are still having issues with the mundanes and Simon is getting rather sick of it. One of the mundanes challenges the elite to a challenge – but not in anything the elite are used to – of baseball. They accept despite not knowing what baseball is. Simon is about to go help out the mundanes, when warlock pulls him aside and tells him that this isn’t the first time the Shadowhunter academy has been almost pulled apart due to an elite and mundane rivalry. She then tells Simon the tale of James Herondale.

To be frank, this is everything The Lost Herondale should have been. I got a lot of insight into who James Herondale was and his interactions with the Lightwoods and Matthew Fairchild had me on the floor a few times. I wasn’t all that surprised when it was revealed that he took after his mother with being part demon, but it added to the amazingness of his character. I can’t wait to read more about him!

Final Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. James Herondale’s story is amazing and I’m kind of curious what happens with Simon and his whole parabatai idea.

Bookshelf worthy? Still only available as an ebook, which is a good thing for my already limited shelf space.
