In which we learn about Magnus Bane

16303287Fans 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. (Synopsis taken from Goodreads)

So, upon reading this, I have learned that A) A drunk Magnus Bane is a hysterical Magnus Bane B) First dates with the head warlock of Brooklyn are awkward at the very least, and C) Isabelle Lightwood has no problem trying to break down before mentioned warlock’s door.

This is a book a short stories (eleven, I believe, I can’t remember the exact number), with Magnus Bane narrating. Magnus, as we know, is a very interesting person, so this was a very interesting book. We get to know some of his old love interests, some of his warlock friends, as well as more of his past. Apparently, Magnus changes his age depending on how it suits him. Which shouldn’t be so surprisingly, really, knowing what we know about Magnus.

Well I do recommend that fans of the series read this, it does contain some spoilers. So only read it after you’ve finished City of Lost Souls.

Also, this isn’t a full-on review. Call this a filler review ’cause I wasn’t expecting to review this but I forgot to schedule a post for Monday (or today, however you look at it), and this is how I’m making do. I believe this is called a “mini review”?

In other news, I have made a Tumblr! We’ll see how this goes, because I tried Tumblr before (to do a fandom blog), and it worked horribly.

Happy Monday,
