When we fall in love with a book, we’re never satisfied with experiencing it in just one format. We’ve got to have the hardcovers, of course–our shelves would be sad and empty without them! But we also need the e-book because what if we’re stranded on the train with only a phone and a desperate need to read?! And you know we need the audiobook, because there’s definitely something special about being told a story by someone else. Bonus points when the storyteller is someone we already know and love, like with these Shadowhunters audiobooks.
9 Shadowhunters Audiobooks Narrated by Celebrities You Love
1. James Marsters – Lord of Shadows/Queen of Air and Darkness
Beginning with the book of the hour, James Marsters is the latest star to read one of Cassie’s audio books. While he is perhaps best known for his role as Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, he has also shown up in incredibly popular shows like Torchwood as Captain John Hart, and in Smallville as the supervillain Braniac.
2. B.D Wong – The Red Scrolls Of Magic
If you’re wondering why B.D. Wong’s voice sounds so familiar, that’s because he is the voice of Captain Li Shang from Disney’s Mulan. I think there was a small part of me that hoped Magnus and Alec would sing a duet of “I’ll Make a Man Out of You”. He’s also a series regular on Mr. Robot and had the recurring character of Dr. Huang on Law & Order: SVU. We couldn’t be more excited to have him narrating this amazing Shadowhunters book!
3. Morena Baccarin—Lady Midnight
Firefly did not run anywhere as long as it should have (Serenity was a poor conclusion). If it had, I’m positive Morena would have broken out even bigger than she has — her role as Inara was one of the. Despite that show’s incredibly unjust cancellation, she has had successful turns in popular network shows like Stargate SG-1, Homeland, Gotham, and the V remake. She also played Wade Wilson’s love interest, Vanessa, in 2016’s Deadpool. Fun fact – she also appeared in the original pilot for It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia as Carmen, the role that would ultimately be played by Brittany Daniel.
4. Sam Heughan–The Fiery Trial
Sam Heughan of Outlander fame reads The Fiery Trial audio book. He stole our hearts as the Scottish highlander Jamie Fraser and we couldn’t be more excited to listen to his voice read this Shadowhunter Academy book!

5. Sophie Turner – City of Heavenly Fire
One of the most popular young actors on this list, Sophie Turner has earned rave reviews as Sansa Stark on the epic HBO series Game of Thrones. She has also joined the X-Men universe as Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse, guaranteeing that she will continue to be part of geek culture for the foreseeable future.
6. Daniel Sharman – Clockwork Princess
Who doesn’t love Teen Wolf? Daniel Sharman is best known for his role as Isaac Lahey!
7. Jennifer Ehle –Clockwork Angel
Perhaps one of the less well-known stars on this list, this BAFTA winning actress most recognizable credit is Elizabeth Bennet in the stellar 1995 Pride and Prejudice miniseries. In my humble opinion, this is the ultimate film version of the classic book.
8. Mae Whitman- City of Bones
Mae Whitman read for this movie tie in of the City of Bones audio. Whitman is a fantastic character actress, with memorable turns in films like Scott Pilgrim vs The World and Perks of Being a Wallflower. However, she’s probably best known as the voice of Katara from the nearly perfect Avatar: The Last Airbender animated series.
9. Heather Lind— Clockwork Prince
Heather Lind plays Anna Strong in AMC’s Turn: Washington’s Spies, which was recently renewed for a 4th season, starting July 26th!
