Book Description

Magnus thought he would never return to London, but he is lured by a handsome offer from Tatiana Blackthorn, whose plans - involving her beautiful young ward - are far more sinister than Magnus even suspects. In London at the turn of the century, Magnus finds old friends, and meets a very surprising young man...the sixteen-year-old James Herondale. One of ten eBook short stories in The Bane Chronicles, a series about the enigmatic warlock and fan favourite Magnus Bane from Cassandra Clare’s internationally bestselling series The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments. Also don’t miss The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, in cinemas August 2013! Follow /TheMortalInstrumentsUK on facebook or @InstrumentsUK on twitter for movie news.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Rather pointless 18 July 2013

    *may contain spoilers*
    I was always taught that a story had to have a beginning, middle, and an end. Not matter how long or short the story was, if any of these three pillars were missing then the whole story would collapse. This story had a very interesting beginning and was just getting to the intriguing middle when it just stopped. No ending, just a full stop. It was rather like waiting weeks to watch a brand new episode of your favourite TV show only to have a power cut in the middle of the episode. I was left feeling frustrated and thinking, what was the point of this book?

    I was under the assumption that the Bane Chronicles were written for the loyal fans to gain insights into the life of Magnus Bane, my favourite character in the Mortal Instruments series. This story gave us no such thing. I didn’t learn anything about Magnus that didn’t I already know and I felt his reunion with Tessa and Will was rather bland. And the little threesome moment between Will, Tessa and Jem was so sickly sweet I wanted to throw something at the characters. Preferably something heavy.
    On the same note, James Herondale was about as interesting as a piece of soggy cardboard. I felt no sympathy or empathy for his character at all. I spent most of the time he was in the book wanting to slap him and tell him to ‘grow up’. He seemed to be a rather boring copy of Will’s character when he was a teenager. The fact that his personality had apparently done a 180 seemed unlikely and unbelievable.

    This didn’t feel like a story. It felt like a prologue. An introduction to a much larger story to which the reader has to draw their own conclusions on the ending.

    Another great book by cassandra clare think this is my favourite one so far, had a great story line and had you on the end of your seat. Unfortunately, you never found out what happened! Look forward to reading the next book and seeing if it finishes the story.

    Very interesting read.... Love it how it's beginning to show how Magnus Bane is related to the characters of all the Shadowhunters.

    If you've read the Infernal Devices, you may be emotionally effected by this book. If you found the Infernal Devices upsetting in any way, this book may make you relive those memories. However don't let that put you off! It really is what you need if you're suffering from a TID book hangover. And for the cheap price of merely a pound, who can complain?!
