Delve into the details of all things Shadowhunter with this illustrated guide to the knowledge and lore of the Shadowhunter world.

Since the thirteenth century, the Shadowhunter’s Codex has been the one and only manual for Shadowhunters looking to brush up on their demon languages, learn proper stele use, and discover just what exactly a pyxis is. Featured in both The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices, this guide is a necessity for any young Nephilim on their journey to becoming a Shadowhunter. Beautifully illustrated, the Codex contains images of the famous Shadowhunter homeland of Idris, as well as depictions of demons and other Downworlders.

But this isn’t just any copy of The Shadowhunter’s Codex. It’s Clary’s copy, and as an artist herself, she’s sketched pictures of her friends and family in the book, and scrawled helpful advice in the margins. Of course, she couldn’t exactly stop Jace or Simon from adding their thoughts either. Part encyclopedia, part history, part training manual—complete with commentary from Shadowhunters who have seen it all—this beautiful guide is a perfect supplement to the #1 New York Times bestselling series.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Goes along with series. This book is an assist to the Mortal Instrument series. If you haven't read the series I suggest you read them. You don`t have to, but it goes with them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun Read I enjoyed these shadowhunter history lessons and liked how this companion novel linked Cassandra's series together. The sections on fey I found most intriguing since they seem to be the most secretive species in the Shadowhunter world. Also its always fun the witness the sassy conversations between Jace, Simon and Clary.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A fun book The Shadowhunter's Codex isn't a must-read but it is an interesting little guide to the Shadowhunter world and its people. I would only buy this if you're a die-hard fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Codex This book is truly more of a guide to assit you through the series, especially the beginning.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting, but enough to read the entire thing The book has some great drawings and commentary from the characters along various pages, but the Codex itself really isn't interesting enough to be taken as reading material. It's more of a textbook really. Unless you're a die-hard fan I really wouldn't spend the money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Shadowhunter's Codex Not as good as I was expecting but a good read if you enjoyed the Mortal Instruments and-or Infernal Devices books
Date published: 2014-03-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Shadowhunter's Codex This book is really good for fans of the Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series; it provides not only an in depth study of weapons, Shadowhunter history and the secrets of Downworld, but is also filled with beautiful illustrations and a selection of rune drawings. Perfect for any Shadowhunter!
