The Voicemail of Magnus Bane

 

Synopsis

“Hi, Magnus. It’s Alec. Alexander. Well, you know that. I’m just calling because I think we need to talk. I guess you’re busy. Call me back, okay?” Beep.

Overview *Contains Spoilers*

The last story in the Bane Chronicles. To be honest, I thought that this was a bit pointless as it didn’t really add anything to the Mortal Instruments Series and I didn’t think it could be considered a ‘story.’

The tenth book in the series is here.

10/10

The Course of True Love

 

Synopsis

Alec’s eyes were a little wide. Magnus suspected that he had been acting on reflex and had not actually intended to use force meant for demon foes against a mundane. The redheaded guy squawked, revealing braces, and flapped his hands in what seemed to be either urgent surrender or a very good panicked duck impression.

The Last Stand of the New York Institute – The Bane Chronicles, Book #9 (Clare, Cassandra)

9/10

The Last Stand of the New York Institute

Synopsis

Magnus felt for a moment as if he had become a storm, black curling clouds, the slam of thunder and slash of lightning, and all the storm wanted was to leap at Valentine’s throat. Magnus’s magic lashed out almost of its own volition, leaped from both hands. It looked like lightning, burning so blue that it was almost white. It knocked Valentine off his feet and into a wall. Valentine hit the wall so hard that a crack rang out, and he slid to the floor.

Overview *Contains Spoilers*

Saving Raphael Santiago – The Bane Chronicles, Book #6 (Clare, Cassandra)

7/10

Saving Raphael Santiago

 

Synopsis

He uncoiled, as swift as a snake, and sprang. It was only because Magnus had seen where the vampire was looking and because he knew how Raphael felt, the exact exquisitely cold feeling of being an outcast, so alone that he barely seemed to exist, that he moved fast enough.

Overview *Contains Spoilers*

The Rise of the Hotel Dumort – The Bane Chronicles, Book #5 (Clare, Cassandra)

10/10

The Rise of the Hotel Dumort

 

Synopsis

The arrow made a kind of singing noise as it cut through the air. It entered Aldous’s chest like a knife sliding easily into an apple. Aldous sat upright for a moment, looking at it; then he slumped to the side, dead.

Overview *Contains Spoilers*

The fifth hilarious story in the Bane Chronicles. This book was one of the best in the chronicles because it was the funniest out of all of them and I was disappointed when it ended.

9/10

Vampires, Scones, and Edmund Herondale

 

Synopsis

It was then that the fair-haired Shadowhunter that Magnus had spotted at the Institute somersaulted from the top of a wall and landed gracefully in the street before him.

Overview *Contains Spoilers*

This book, once again, shows that Magnus is a fun-loving character, with an hilarious sense of humour. However, he shows that he can be serious when the situation calls for it, which is what makes him such a pleasant character to follow in a story.

What Really Happened In Peru – The Bane Chronicles, Book #1 (Clare, Cassandra)

10/10

What really happened in Peru

 

Synopsis

So he kept at it with the charango, despite the fact that he was forbidden to play it in the house. He was also discouraged from playing it in public places by a crying child, a man with papers talking about city ordinances and a small riot. As a last resort he went up to the mountains and played there. Magnus was sure that the llama stampede he witnessed was a coincident. The llamas could not be judging him.

Overview *Contains Spoilers*

This book is sure to delight Magnus Bane and Cassandra Clare fans who have waited for so long to find out, exactly why Magnus Bane was banned from Peru. Neither the Infernal Devices series, nor the Mortal Instruments series, goes into detail of Magnus’s ban, as Bane skirts around the topic, not eager to share, or go into details. Magnus’s quirky sense of humour and personality brings the story to life as we see him, the eternal optimist, try out the Charango and continue through all the discouragement, constantly finding a silver lining to the situation. This is just one of the embarrassing incidents that Magnus is involved with.

This book had me in stitches the entire way through, because Magnus is such a fun-loving and ‘happy-go-lucky’ character, however when he needs to be, he can be serious, which is what makes him such a pleasant character to follow in a story.

The second book in the series is here.
