- Welcome to Shadowhunter Academy — Feb. 17, 2015 — After living as a Mundane and a Vampire, Simon never thought he would become a Shadowhunter, but today he begins his training at Shadowhunter Academy. This standalone e-only short story follows the adventures of Simon Lewis, star of the #1 New York Times best-selling series The Mortal Instruments, as he trains to become a Shadowhunter.

- The Lost Herondale — March 17, 2015 — 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 learn of this brutality, especially when it is revealed the woman was pregnant. But what if the child survived…could there be a lost Herondale line out in the world today?
- The Whitechapel Fiend — April 21, 2015 — Jack the Ripper stalks through London, and only the Shadowhunters can stop him. Simon learns the truth behind the Jack the Ripper murders—“Jack” was stopped by Will Herondale and his institute of Victorian Shadowhunters.
- Nothing but Shadows — May 19, 2015 — Simon learns about James Herondale’s time at Shadowhunter Academy. It’s hard to be a Shadowhunter when you’ve got demonic powers. Simon learns about the school-time struggles of half-warlock James Herondale in this prelude to The Last Hours.
- The Evil We Love — June 16, 2015 / TFTSA — All evil starts somewhere, and Simon Lewis learns how The Circle—led by Valentine Morgenstern—began.

- Bitter of Tongue — August 18, 2015 — After Simon is kidnapped by faeries (why is he always kidnapped?), he uncovers rumors of a secret weapon Sebastian left behind for the faerie queen. He must escape the Fey, relying on his only ally, former Shadowhunter and Dark Artifices character Mark Blackthorn.
- The Fiery Trial — September 15, 2015 — Simon and Clary act as witnesses to the parabatai ceremony of Emma Carstairs and Julian Blackthorn…and discuss their own parabatai plans in this precursor to The Dark Artifices.
