The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare

The Bane ChroniclesThe Bane Chronicles
by Cassandra Clare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Bane Chronicles is a collection of stories about the life and adventures of Mangus Bane, everyone's favorite Warlock. Word of warning - DO NOT READ this until you have finished the Mortal Instruments AND the Infernal Devices, unless you want them to be spoiled for you! Some of the stories occur during the periods of those series and you get Mangus point of view of what was going on, where in the other books you got it from only the Shadowhunters point of view.

Mangus Bane is character quite unto himself and is a joy to read about. He is not self-centered or as egotistical as you would think a centuries old Warlock would be, but he has a calm outlook on life.

There are also a lot of things that Mangus' stories fills in. There is a story about Valentine's Circle, the moment that Joyceln first comes to him with Clary and many others, so you find that in reading about Mangus he fills in some gaps and gives you more details. Which is why you would hate to read it before you read the original stories.

Definitely another must read by Cassandra Clare.
