Magnus Meets The Circle.
on 21 September 2015
Spanning from 1989 right through to 1993, this ninth novella gives us another insight into the Shadow-hunting world through the eyes of our always observant narrator - Magnus Bane.
This particular tale shows us the beginnings of Valentine and the formation of his Circle. I really enjoyed this novella, more so I think than any of the previous ones, because it was so detailed and gripping. I was on the edge of my seat trying to read as quickly as I could because I wanted to know what would happen to characters who I recognised from the main books. It's fantastic to see characters like Luke and Valentine when they were younger and to see how they became what they are. It was especially fun to see Luke because his character is so different to what we know of him now. A side story running in the background was also quite interesting.
A really brilliant addition to the main series but also to this novella collection; I can't recommend this one enough.
