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 lea ...more

"Like all Herondales, his ability to love without measure, without end, was both his great gift and his great curse."

I feel my heart shattering inside my chest and it's the most beautiful and painful feeling ever.

“Every student, Shadowhunter and mundane alike, knew the name Herondale. It was Jace’s last name. It was the name of heroes.”



That's me whenever the name Herondale is mentioned.

To be honest, I'm pretty sure my rating for The Lost Herondale (who was sure he was never lost when he was finally found) is a little unfair but I can't help it since I already know who this mysterious lost Herondale is (that's what happens when you don't follow the proper reading order). It was a gripping stor

The Lost Herondale was a fast paced and informative second book in the Tales from the Shadowhunter Acadamy. Simon Lewis is definitely different from the Simon I grew to love during the Mortal Instruments series, but I'm starting to love the new him too. He's still quirky and nerdy just like the best of us, and he doesn't succumb to peer pressure. Simon Lewis is going to be the strongest hero to ever grace Idris. There weren't many awkward information dumps, or stiff scenes and t

Seriously?! A lost line of Herondales out there roaming the world with no clue as to who they are!? Ahh you're killing me Cassandra Clare! Any mention of Will's family line is enough to do me in.

“For the first time, he looked at her, and she wasn’t a stranger, she was Clary—his friend. His family. The girl he’d sworn always to protect. The girl he loved as fiercely as he loved himself.”


This was amazing! . I loved it :)

Especially that end ...:3 Clary and Simon!

Another Herondale on earth living as worldly, I hope someone find him ,God!, has to do it !!

These novels filled with feelings my heart :D!!!!!!!!

“We all have our own story of the Dark War. All of us lost something. Some of us lost everything.”

We get to see Simon and twenty of his classmates try and kill their first law breaking Downworlder, but it happens to be a vampire that new Simon before his memories were lost. We get to learn a story about Tobias Herondale, the younger brother of Will, and it is heartbreaking. This story really shows how there are always two sides to a story, and in this case three.

NOOOOO. YOU'RE KIDDING ME!

There's actually a lost Herondale line out there roaming around in the mundane world without actually knowing they have Shadowhunter blood flowing in their veins?

You're torturing me, Cassandra!

I want to know who this lost Herondale is!

It is sad that I do not like it as much as I wanted. Maybe I expected too much... I like the true story of Tobias Herondale but the other part is just okay...
Hope that the next story will be better(・ω・)ノ

Hazar Simon is finally regaining a few memories!

I really hope Simon and Clary become parabati or something I'll be seriously disappointed after all this foreshadowing if they don't!

Loving all the Star Trek and doctor who references there needs to be more shadow hunter nerds! How can anyone not know what manga is?!

Tobias Herondale's story was interesting and it explains where Christian Herondale (lady Midnight came from).

This book makes me believe that you should read these books before you state The Dark Artifices series. Because that question at the end of that synopsis? Yeah, that's a spoiler.

Um, well, this was not a phenomenally enjoyable of a read, but it was informative.

Simon is such a cutie and I just want to snuggle him. I also still feel bad for the fact he is feeling all these feelings but his mind doesn't have the memories to back those up.

Yes! this was much better! Probably because it wasn't just about the present. I love history, even if it is fictional. I also really love the Herondale line so even just a little mention of Will Herondale makes me a happy little girl.

I finished this ebook two weeks ago and I didn't update my status because I wanted to write a review. It's kind of like a routine now, I finish a book and write a review. But since I never get the time to read, I never get time to write reviews. I love writing reviews and sharing my thoughts about a book but I always have something in my way. Today, it is almost 12 AM and I am determined to finish a book review for this book. I am procrastinating on book reviews! UGH!

Full review on my blog, the Snark Theater.

Technically, aren't Alec and Isabelle also Herondales? (suddenly realized that they descended from Cecily, so…y'know.) I just feel like talking about a "lost" one is kind of irrelevant when there are already still a few. But even if we only considered patrilineal heritage for some reason, please don't ever bring more Herondales. Don't. Just don't.

Aside from that, 1) the Academy sends kids on a deadly mission while laughing at the thought of danger 2) the

THESE NOVELLAS ARE TOO DAMN SHORT AND DO NOT HAVE A SATISFYING CONCLUSION.

I love the characters and some quotes are beautiful but DAMN I WANTED ANOTHER HERONDALE TO LOVE.

Did I get a Herondale?


Nope.

Although there is a sneak peak for Lady Midnight. Some hardcore fans my want to read this. I already ship Julian and Emma so much *sobs*

"Like all Herondales, his ability to love without measure, without end, was both his great gift and his great curse."

Tobias's story was incredibly sad. But this short story was very good and eemotional. I just hope Simon will stop treating Isabelle like that, my ship is dying and I don't need that.

Clary/Simon at the end. I NEED A MINUTE TO PROCESS. So emotional.

I can't believe there's like a mundane branch of the Herondale family. It's like a dream come true, hot Herondales everywhere.

I always say I'm going to stop reading Shadowhunter books but I always get wrapped up in them. I love The Infernal Devices series to the ends of the earth but The Mortal Instruments series dragged on and on for me and I stopped liking them after book three. I didn't plan on continuing with Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy but I was gifted a copy so I thought I might as well finish it.
I'm not a fan of Simon, never have been, so The Lost Herondale tested my patience pretty much 100% of the tim

This short novella disappointed me quite a bit, as it was not what I expected. Maybe it’s because I had high expectations since I had previously enjoyed Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy. I thought we would get to meet this mysterious ‘lost Herondale’ but I should have known better. Hopefully the ‘lost Herondale will make an appearance in one of the future novels to come. Tobias Herondale’s story was quite sad, and had more depth to it than I had expected.

I hope we actually get to see a lost Herondale (please be over their fear of duck, it's getting ridiculous). I remember two titles in The Bane Chronicles that were misleading and the stories didn't provide what they seemed to promise. Dear editor/whoever did this, it's a cheap and low trick to get people to buy a book and it leaves your readers disappointed. Do you really want that?
