Publisher Description

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.

“Justice for the codex it was such a fun read. All of clary and simon’s annotations were hilarious but jace’s especially always took me out.”
“this is what I mean by the world itself has potential.”
“Každý budúci tieňolovec musí prejsť výcvikom, ktorý obsahuje skúšky nie len z praktických ale aj teoretických vedomostí. A tie teoretické vedomosti sú zozbierané v Kódexe tieňolovcov. Nachádzajú sa tam poznatky o tieňolovcoch, ich histórii, démonoch, zbraniach, bojovom výcviku, parabataioch,mágii, zákonoch Sesie či miesta, ktoré v Tieňosvete tieňolovci navštevujú. Veľmi sa teším, že Cassandra Clare v spolupráci s Joshua Lewisom vytvorila túto nádhernú ilustrovanú príručku. Nielen, že v knihe nájdeme dokonalé ilustrácie a informácie, ktoré dotvárajú realisticky dojem tohto svetu, ale aj "ručne" písané poznámky postáv z tieňosveta. Knižka je oddychovým čitaním, ktoré zhltnete za chvíľu. Perfektne dopĺňa moju zbierku a je fakt krásna. Odporúčam hlavne knihomoľom, ktorí milujú Cassandru a nenechajú si ujsť ani jednu jej knihu. 10/10”
“I gave this a high rating even though I really didn’t need to. I wasn’t really impressed per say because I knew everything in this book having read all the Shadowhunter books. That being said, it has some good info with some excerpts from our TMI characters in it. Those parts were funny and on character. But the book got really boring really fast, and unless you want something to help you understand the world better, this is a good tool with beautiful artwork in it. If you don’t choose to read it though, that’s okay since whatever you learn in this book also comes up in the books books on their own, so you don’t have to worry if you are or are not getting extra info, because you aren’t really getting much. I gave this way too high of a rating but I’ll stick with it: 4 stars”
“Calling all Shadowhunter wannabies”
