The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare,
Sarah Rees Brennan, Maureen Johnson.
It’s not easy being Magnus
Bane, an immortal warlock constantly called away from his glamorous life to fix
the problems of others. In his long life, Magnus has a history of being at the
right place at the right (or wrong) time. The French Revolution, the great
blackout of New York City, the first great battle between Valentine and the New
York Institute’s Shadowhunters…Magnus was not only there, but was inevitably in
the thick of it. But smuggling Marie Antoinette out of France is nothing
compared to loving a vampire like Camille Belcourt—or having a first date with
Shadowhunter Alec Lightwood. Set in the world of Cassandra Clare’s Shadowhunter
books, this collection of stories reveal much, including: What happens when an
immortal warlock goes mad? What do you buy for your Shadowhunter boyfriend when
you’re not really dating? And why was Magnus banned from Peru? Your Shadowhunters will revel in these
eleven tales, which reveal delicious and intimate details about everyone’s
favorite immortal warlock. Ages 12 and up. 528pp.
