By the Angel, why isn't 10 stars an option?

This is by far the funniest, if not suspenseful (really, nothing can compete with CoHF) book I've read this year.
Magnus Bane (more like Magnus Babe!) is the glowing highlight of every book in The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices series. You can always rely on him to glamour up your life - literally.

This book in general is sectioned into 11 separate short stories which take you on a spontaneous adventure with our very own High Warlock of Brooklyn. Each story made me laugh, and cry, and just cry because I finally got to have this book in my possession (after an agonizing wait for this full-edition paperback of The Bane Chronicles, I discovered my copy I pre-ordered from Amazon is to be delayed. I then proceeded to murder anyone who dared glance my way because I was in a tantrum.) But the wait, however aggravating it was, was worth it.

The Midnight Heir is probably my favourite story, because of Will and Tessa and Jem, and I finally got to meet James and Grace! I cannot wait for The Last Hours!

Praise for Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees-Brennan, and Maureen Johnson on this spectacular complain of The Shadowhunter Chronicles.

I was really looking forward to this book because although reading TMI & TID trilogies was a bit of a slow march, I really enjoyed the characters and grew attached to them, especially Magnus. The problem with the Bane Chronicles is that it does everything they tell you not to do in writing school... Tell! Tell! Tell! Nothing is shown, everything is told by the writer, with very little dialogue, especially in the first four chapters. Nothing happens, literally. Characters just stand around and talk. In one story where Magnus meets James Herondale, he follows the boy on a hell raising night out, but we are just told about it after Magnus brings him home to his parents; then they stand around and talk and Magnus observes how much they love each other; then he leaves and goes to a Lightwood's house where he is asked to do something he refuses to do; then he leaves... Presumably he later gets on a boat to return to New York. All talk talk talk, with memories and observations and no action. And after a while even the clever quips and witty one liners that I used to enjoy became suddenly irritating and torturous as hellfire. It reached a stage where I was plodding through, just to finish so I could say I read it. In particular, the last chapter of Magnus's voice messages had an element of juvenilism I hadn't noticed before... Was the series always so childish and stupid and I simply failed to notice?

I can’t stop smiling. This book is perfection <3

I’ve read a lot of hate about Cassandra Clare, but this review isn’t about that, because to be honest, they can do whatever the hell they want so long as Cassandra Clare keeps writing.

I have fallen in love with the world she’s created and everyone (well almost everyone…) in it. Magnus Bane was a favourite of mine in the other books and I jumped on the chance for more revolving around his life. I wasn’t disappointed. You see how much depth his character really has, because while his sarcastic humour and eccentric fashion is what first made me take notice, it was the shadowy feelings of love and loss which captured my attention.

We see so much of both, meaning you won’t be hearing any complaints from me!

All the individual stories were so interesting in their own ways, but my favourite had to be “The Course of True Love (And First Dates)” which features so much Malec (Magnus & Alec) that my inner fangirl rose to the surface and went crazy.

This combination of the short stories is a fabulous edition to the Shadowhunter World that all fans of will love and must read.

Excellent read. Find out so much more about Magnus and even some good tales including Ragnor and Catarina. It was good to read more about Ragnor's character. The stories were all worth reading, stories include Tessa, Clary, Raphael and Camille and other fave characters.

If your a fan of the mortal instruments series then you'll really like this book. Don't read before finishing the series because of spoilers. Really great character to learn more about, I wish the book was longer!

I love Cassandre Clare and I think her books are amazing. This was no exception. It was funny, it was touching, it was unpredictable. All of which descirbe Magbus Bane, one of my favourite characters from The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices - except Jace. It was interesting to find out more about Magnus' past and understand more about his relationship with Ragnor Fell and Catrina Loss. I couldn't put it down and I found it very funny. If you are a fan of Magnus this is a book for you.

Compared to the other books I have read in the shadow hunter series this was only ok. Boring in parts and always felt unfinished

Excellent book. Written as well as any of her others. For me the down side is the stories are not split into 3 minute files like the normal audio books are, this makes it difficult to pick up part way through a story. Otherwise well worth reading or listening to.
