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.

Haa what an epic adventure it was reading The Bane Chronicles was for me. I tell you all the truth I was kind of iffy going into this book, because I read the first story What Really Happened in Peru a couple a years ago. While I enjoy the first book that had me giggling in some parts, but I did not love it too continue on read the other stories. I wanted too wait and see if Cassandra Clare made a whole book with the short novella's of The Bane Chronicles. Which I heard she was doing one whole book with all the novella's and I was jumping up and down with joy when the whole book finally did come out. But sadly I didn't have time too check The Bane Chronicles out from the library the year it came out, until this year I finally check it out from the library. Because I want too read both The Bane Chronicles and Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy which I am going to try to check out next month or on Aug. So I can be prepare to read The Dark Artifices books hopefully I can get too them by this fall or winter. But other than that I really love and enjoyed everything in this amazing book especially I love reading about one of my favorite characters and couple of all time. Magnus Bane & Alec (Malec) just so swoon worthy. This book is all about Magnus Bane and his adventures and troubles he has during the years he is Warlock of the century. I don't want to get into any details because I think everybody's knows what this fantastic book is about. But I just love reading and learning more about Magnus and the downworlders and on how everything went down before Clary and Jem. But my favorite part reading is the Malec chapters ohh how swoon worthy was it with both Magnus and Alec together. Ahh I can keep on gushing about them but I think everybody understands my giddiness and fandom with Malec together just swoon! All and all I absolutely, utterly and totally love The Bane Chronicles that I can't wait too continue reading more of Cassandra Clare books!
