Poorly written. Should have used semi colons instead of commas. (less)

SO many amazing moments in this tale. We got taken back to the 1800s with Jem, Will and Tessa. I laughed and cried (happy tears of course) and laughed some more thanks to Jace:

“Good night, Wiggles.”
“Wiggles?”
“Yes, Wiggles. Your nickname? It’s what you always made us call you. I almost forgot your name was Simon, I’m so used to calling you Wiggles.”
“Wiggles? What does that . . . even mean?”
“You would never explain,” Jace said with a shrug. “It was the big mystery about you. As I said, good night,

SO GOOD! We got Simon and George of course (the cutest boys), but we were also absolutely spoiled with Jace, Tessa, Jem, and MY LOVE WILL HERONDALE! Cassandra Clare puts a new spin on the mystery of Jack the Ripper, which actually started to make a lot of sense, and we get to see the next generation of Herondale babies who we will be focusing on in The Last Hours! Such a treat of a novella and I can't wait to start the next novella in the morning!

P.S. The narrator of the audio book has the most

Blurb: Simon learns the truth behind the Jack the Ripper murders—“Jack” was stopped by Will Herondale, his former parabatai, and his institute of Victorian Shadowhunters aka cool stuff about Jack The Ripper and lots of Herondale feels.

I’m going to try separate two thing here.
First I’m going to talk about Simon and how he’s doing in the Academy and then I’ll go with the Herondale factor in this story.

BEWARE: Lots of feels and crying were involved in the writing of this review.

“Once, I was not called Tessa Gray but Tessa Herondale.”

Help me, my heart lies bleeding on the floor.



Will Herondale as a father. A husband. A loving parabatai despite everything. How could I not love this story? Action, mystery, and the true story about Jack the Ripper's reign of terror, combined with ordinary and not-so-ordinary moments between Will and Tessa, they made The Whitechapel Fiend a gift and a curse and left me craving for more. Jace's cameo was simply the cherry on top,

You can sell me anything blurbed with the name Will Herondale. I finished the Infernal devices like 2 years ago and still not over it. It hurts so much.

AFTER READING
William my eternal love you never disappoint.
I'm not the biggest fan of the City of Bones generation but I love the Infernal Devices characters. They are the best characters Cassandra Clare's written so far and probably they'll remain the best. At least for me.
I laughed and I had my tears of grief. Loved this.

So many Wessa Feels! I can't deal! There's a reason I'm currently re reading The Infernal Devices, it simply does not get any better than this group of characters. I'm sorry, Simon who? I forgot this was supposed to be his novella.

“I am Tessa Gray,” she said in a low, clear voice. “And I believe in the importance of stories.”


ONE OF MY FAVORITE NO DOUBT !!!
I'VE LOVED IT COMPLETELY!!



The combination of Jace and Simon always makes me laugh! :)

The Whitechapel Fiend is the third novella in the Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy. It seems like every novella is better than the last. The relationship Simon is forming with his new and new/semi-old friends is so cute and awkward it makes me smile and tear up all at the same time. We get to meet and hear stories about some of my favorite characters of all time, Simon learns new ninja skills, and forges some (I spy something that starts with S.) super friendships. George is t

If you are a Shadowhunter fan and you still haven't read these novellas, what are you doing with your life!!! I'm telling you, you want to read this. YOU WANT TO READ THIS!



I really didn't think I would get the chance to read about my favorite trio in this novella. It was such a nice surprise to find Tessa, Jem and the love of my life WILL HERONDALE.



The nostalgia you guys the NOSTALGIA! I think might just ditch everything in my life right now just to reread the whole Infernal Devices trilogy.

“The trick to falling is not to fall…”

Oh, my word, there was a lot to like about this one! Not only do we get to see Jace training Shadowhunter kids to jump out of trees, we also get to see Tessa, Will, and Jem solving… get ready for it… the Jack the Ripper murders in 1888 London! Like, I was for sure not expecting to wake up and read that today! But what a gift!

This novella just made me realize how much I missed The Infernal Devices so much.

I miss Tessa, Will, Jem, and everybody else that was a part of The Infernal Devices. It was really great to see a glimpse of how their lives were after the events of Clockwork Princess. I wish their story went on forever.

However, I was a little surprised how very little this novella had to do with Simon. Don't get me wrong, I love Tessa and all of the characters from The Infernal Devices, but I was expecting more of

❝ There were few people in the world who understood how much Will and Jem had loved each other, did love each other, and how much Will missed him. But Tessa did. ❞

“No, Jamie,” Will urged. “Your honorable father has been impugned. Attack, attack!”

Oh my gosh, I AM SO HAPPY I LOVED THIS NOUVELLA SO MUCH! THIS MIGHT BE MY FAVORITE STORY FROM THE SHADOW HUNTER ACADEMY SO FAR! Ugh, the feels and how all of the characters are back. I loved reading more with the characters I love and learning more about their past! This review might have spoilers for the Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices so I suggest that you do not read this review.

3.5 stars

There was lots I enjoyed about this one, especially Tessa's lecture and that throwback longish scene. The conundrum for me, is that not having read TMI series, I don't know who Jace, Simon etc are and so there are holes in my knowledge. That said, it was interesting still. I'm reading these stories that have been flagged as useful before CHAIN OF GOLD.

Oh my God, OH MY GOD THE FEELS!!

This is probably the best one so far. How could it not be? Jace was being his usual smug self and such a show-off, I had forgotten how goddamn awesome he was;
Will and Tessa and Jem faced together (just like the old times..) Jack the Ripper, who wasn't what us mundanes think he was.

I wish there was more Jem, I wish there had been more dialogues with Tessa and Jace and I just with this had been so much longer!

I think I'll never get over how beautiful and painful their story is.
Will and Tessa's story is and will probably remain one of my favourite love stories of all times.
(Even though I haven't had the courage to open Clockwork Princess since reading that epilogue.)

“Spoon!” James said, running at his uncle Gabriel and jabbing him in the thigh. Gabriel mussed the boy’s hair affectionately.
“You’re such a good boy,” he said. “I often wonder how you could possibly be Will’s.”
“Spoon,” James said, leaning against his uncle’s leg lovingly.
“No, Jamie,” Will urged. “Your honorable father has been impugned. Attack, attack!”

“To his children, Will showed the same love he had always shown to her, fierce and unyielding. And the same protectiveness he had only ever showed to one other person: the person James had been named after. Will’s parabatai, Jem.” 91 likes
