I could not wait to get my hands on this book! I Love Magnus Bane and his eclectic personality and wanted to know as much as I could about his past and present and what happened in Peru! He would be the Superstar character in a movie and what a character!! This book did ot let me down!! I loved it!!

It's a must read for all Magnus fans! I highly recommend buying it. Though it isn't exactly the same as Cass writing by herself, I completely enjoyed the amount of humor in all of the stories. It gives us a deeper look at the magnificent High Warlock of Brooklyn and was worth every cent I paid.

Cassandra Clare is an awesome writer. Her main series is amazing and this book is no different. Magnus is probably the best character and it's great to see him with his own book. It's a must read for anyone who has read the Mortal Instruments or Infernal Devices and loved them.

I really enjoyed this! Obviously, you need to have some understanding of the Shadowhunter world to enjoy and understand a lot of these stories (or risk being spoiled), but it's fun. I waited for this so I could read all of them at once rather than individually as they were released, but for me it was worth it. Magnus Bane is a great character, and while I could definitely sense when the writing was different than just Cassandra Clare's usual style, it was a good peek into other events in the series we already have.

If you are a fan of this series then The Bane Chronicles cannot be missed. Through short stories, you get to see Magnus before and during the series with the added fun of seeing things from his point of view. 507 pages but I read it a quick two days!

4.5 stars! I loved this book. I've always wanted to know more about Magnus Bane and here it is! He is absolutely hilarious! I also liked the fact that we get to see more of the characters from The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices and even The Last Hours! Magnus had some amazing adventures in the most amazing places. With adventures ranging from the 16th century till modern day, fans of Magnus Bane will not be dissapointed especially since there is a whole story on the first date of Magnus and Alec that was truly great.

So great! I love getting to see Magnus' story after six novels of barely anything.

Magnus Bane has always been a favorite of mine from the Shadowhunter series – he is a wonderfully complex character, who is simultaneously the funniest and gravest character. Also, he is immortal which means his story spans through centuries and across the various Institutes and series. But the Bane Chronicles, while set in the Nephilim world, gives us a better view of the Downworlders through him. They are the marginalized denizens of the Shadow World, and the Nephilim are barely more than a cruel policing force, a fact that is made apparent several times during the course of this anthology. There are funny stories like What Really Happened in Peru and serious ones like The Midnight Heir, cute ones like What to get a Shadowhunter who has Everything. Overall, it is a wonderful addition to the Shadowhunter Universe and adds plenty of background to characters and missing pieces of the puzzle. Like the fact that Ragnor Fell and Raphael Santiago are basically besties who regularly gossip about Magnus; how Tessa and Jocelyn first meet; how Magnus came to have a cat – all these little things that wouldn’t probably add much to the main series but give depth to the characters. A must if you are a Shadowhunter fan.

I really enjoyed these chronicles.  I especially enjoyed all of the stories involving Alec!  The bonus story in my copy of the book was a bit bittersweet, but enjoyable anyway.  Though my favorites involved Alec, it was also interesting to get stories of the Magnus that came before all that we'd seen in The Mortal Instruments.  And the Magnus that was between The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments.  Magnus is such a lively and lovable character and I'm so glad that Clare decided to give us more of him.  Definitely recommended for people who love the Shadowhunter world, and especially if you've got a soft spot for the warlock Magnus Bane.

Sorry, this has been a while coming.      When I first discovered these stories, I was sadly disappointed that they were being published in e-book form. I do not own an e-reader. I prefer the books I buy to be in hardback or paper back form, so I can have a physical library, over a virtual on. I'm not against e-readers, and perhaps one day, I will buy one, just to have access to those tales released only in electronic form.      So I was excited when these stories were put together in an anthology. If you have not read The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Device books, then I would not recommend reading these tales, because they focus on Magus Bane and characters that accompany his history, from these books. The first of The Mortal Instruments is City of Bones, and the first of The Infernal Devices is Clockwork Angel.      This was a collection of tales, 98% were good tales. Though at times, I thought a bit more could have been added to round the tales out a bit better. My main issue, was with the first and last tale. The first never answered the question that it claimed by title to answer. It was like giving someone a gift, and once they unwrapped it, discovered an empty box. A waste of a tale, and truly unfair. So disappointing.       The lasts tale, seemed to be a wasted attempt to have another tale. The whole tale is done through voice mail messages. Face to face contact would have been much more interesting and less tedious, of a tale.       Otherwise, the tales were what I expected even when co-authored with another. Worth reading.

THE Bane Chronicles would be best appreciated as a companion to the associated series. “[Will Herondale] would say he knew a warlock who was a better friend, and more worth trusting, than many a nephilim warrior.”  THE BANE CHRONICLES by Cassandra Clare, Maureen Johnson, and Sarah Rees Brennan are an anthology of eleven short stories that fill in previously unknown parts of warlock Magnus Bane's life. I had previously read and thoroughly enjoyed Cassandra's Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series. Because I remembered being utterly intrigued by Magnus Bane, I was thrilled when I was offered this audio featuring the fun, ostentatious and always fashionably dressed warlock to review. However, while I found parts of this listen interesting and/or comical, for the most part, this collection was, unfortunately, just not my cup of tea.  My full review is posted at Reading Between The Wines Book Club.  3 Wine Glasses.

I did enjoy getting to know Magnus better. But I don't understand the point of a few of those stories. Like I still have no clue why Magnus was banned from Peru at all. I enjoyed the stories that had more to do with Camille and the Herondales and of course the Lightwoods. If I could do it over again, I would just buy some of the stories and not all of them.
