The Bane Chronicles
TITLE: The Bane Chronicles (#1-10)
COMIC ILLUSTRATOR: Cassandra Jean
PUBLICATION DATE: November 11TH 2014
MY RATING: ★★★★★
A Collection of Ten Short Stories centered around Magnus Bane.
Ever wondered about the enigmatic, mysterious warlock Magnus Bane? The only character to appear in every Shadowhunter book, Magnus has a past even more shrouded in mystery than his present. I've teamed up with acclaimed YA writers Maureen Johnson and Sarah Rees Brennan to create the Bane Chronicles, the back (and front) story of Magnus told in ten linked tales.
It's not easy being Magnus Bane. As a warlock, he's often called upon to fix the problems of others. His life has been long, and his loves have been many. And Magnus has a way of making sure he's at the right place at the right - or perhaps wrong- time. The French Revolution, Prohibition, the first great battle between Valentine and the New York Institute... Magnus was there. But smuggling Marie Antoinette out of France is nothing compared to having a first date with Alec Lightwood. (book description)
