What’s it all about?
As we continue the stories of Simon and the Shadowhunter Academy, this story bring to life the history of love and friendship that has plagued the New York institute for many years. When Izzy comes to pay Simon a visit, it is not out of her own will, but her fathers. Robert Lightwood has had many ups and downs in his life, but we soon find out his lowest point, and one that he plans on making an example of. His story is told as one to teach those at the academy to forgive, and forget. Hopefully Simon and Izzy will be able to hear this message loud and clear, finally.
The Best Parts:
I think this is the best so far form these novels, as it gives a great back story to the homophobic natures of the shadowhunters, as well as Robert’s uncomfortableness with his own some Alec, and why he is trying so hard for his son as well. This story also shows a great deal of trust and memory gain that Simon is going through, and I think it is a great send off towards the end of the series. It seems like a light at the end of the tunnel for my Sizzy.
The Worst Parts:
For once I can’t say anything bad about a story. I thought everything about this short story was perfect, and I just want more!
If you love anything Shadowhunters you should totally read these stories! The next story comes out July 21, with each book coming out every month!
