Fans of The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices can get to know warlock Magnus Bane like never before in this collection of New York Times bestselling tales, in print for the first time with an exclusive new story and illustrated material.
This collection of eleven short stories illuminates the life of the enigmatic Magnus Bane, whose alluring personality, flamboyant style, and sharp wit populate the pages of the #1 New York Times bestselling series, The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices.
Originally released one-by-one as e-only short stories by Cassandra Clare, Maureen Johnson, and Sarah Rees Brennan, this compilation presents all ten together in print for the first time and includes a never-before-seen eleventh tale, as well as new illustrated material.
The Bane Chronicles will quite literally have you laughing out loud. I can practically guarantee it. This novel consists of 11 short stories. In my copy, at the beginning of every story, there was a comic with a scene from that story. The comics were my favorite part. It gave a sneak peak into what was going to happen in that story- but not so much that it spoiled the entire chapter.
It gave glimpses into Magnus’ past. I think my favorite would have to be Saving Raphael Santiago. If you've read it, what is your favorite?
This is such a great addition to The Mortal Instruments and it is super entertaining!
