It is 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 in 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, and usually in the middle of it. Magnus will never be able to tell all of his tales. No one would believe him. But these eleven stories shed a little light on his often inscrutable character. They are stories he probably wishes had never got out.

Hilarious, touching, insightful, occasionally serious and riddled with foreshadow and insight, The Bane Chronicles are the brilliant tales of Magnus Bane, High Warlock of Brooklyn and much loved character of Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunter world.

Not only does The Bane Chronicles tell the adventures of the elusive, glamorous and eccentric Magnus, but fans also find out what really happened in Peru, how the High Warlock found himself in the business of saving Rafael Santiago, some unmissable Malec scenes, the voicemail of Magnus Bane after the events of City of Lost Souls, plus the untold love story of Ragnor Fell and Rafael Santiago. What’s not to love?

Oh, and did I mention a sneak peek into The Last Hours, the upcoming series about the next generation of Shadowhunters after The Infernal Devices?

Full or intrigue, glitter, sparkles and more, The Bane Chronicles is an absolute must for fans of Cassandra Clare.
