“Magnus, you were trying to flirt with your own plate.”
“I’m a very open-minded sort of fellow!”


THIS HAS BEEN SO GOOD !.

The truth is that re-reading on a character for whom I have so much love, like Magnus, has been a pleasure.
I’ve always been very curious to know more about the life of this eccentric character , who has always been present in the life of the Shadowhunters both The Mortal Instruments saga, as in the trilogy the infernal devices, which as you know, I love with all my heart :).
So, for me has been incredible that in these short stories the writers have given me the possibility to not only revive to Bane , but also to ancient characters of the sagas that I miss so much !. It was a beautiful reading full of magic, adventure and beautiful quotes.

  1. I absolutely love Magnus Bane (he’s one of my favourite characters in the Shadowhunter Universe) and I loved all of these stories. I first read them when they were released separately in e-book format but I couldn’t resist having the hardback bind up as well, especially since there was the added voice-mail messages between Magnus and Alec at the back of the book. I need to re-read it soon!

  2. Oh I LOVED The Bane Chronicles! of course its because it’s based on my luv Magnus! lol. I agree with you though, seeing other characters from The Infernal Devices pop in from time to time def. added to the appeal of this collection. Glad you enjoyed it 😉
