The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan & Maureen Johnson, 507 pages
This is a collection of short stories about Magnus Bane, featured warlock in The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices series. The stories are fun and really give us an inside look into Magnus’s life. Clare wrote the stories, sometimes with just one of the other women and sometimes with both, but all of the stories sound mostly like Clare’s voice. The stories start as early as the 1700’s and relate Magnus’s adventures in various countries, and come up to present day, as he is when we meet him in the series. I almost liked this book better than any of the books in the series, actually, so I would definitely recommend that fantasy fans read it and any teens who have read the series will absolutely want to read this also.
