Title: The Bane Chronicles
Author: Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson.
My Rating: 4.5
Summary: Magnus Bane is a warlock in the Shadowhunter Chronicles. This book contains eleven tales from his life from the reason why he was banned from Peru to the Malec breakup.
My Thoughts: Everyone loves Magnus Bane, so do I. I was really excited for this book to come out so I could get to know Magnus better and get an insight into his life.
These stories were released individually as E-books and then they were finally compiled together and published as a book containing an eleventh story.
I really enjoyed reading each and every one of them. Cassandra co-wrote them with Sarah and Maureen and I’m not a big fan of that because they all had really different styles of writing and it was really confusing to shift from one style to the other.
The stories in the book are amazing and they all capture different aspects of Bane’s life perfectly. We get to know what happened in Peru (or do we?), we finally get to know what happened to Raphael and much more.
My favorite story was ‘The Voicemail of Magnus Bane’ because it follows the most devastating breakup ever, the Malec breakup.
I highly recommend this book to everyone who is a fan to the shadow world.
Announcement: Casandra Clare has announced to publish a trilogy about Magnus Bane. The trilogy will be co-written by Wesley Chu and is expected to be released in November 2017.
