Oh Magnus Bane how I love you. Magnus is one of my all time favorite characters in the Mortal Instruments series. I have only read The Mortal Instruments Series, Shadowhunter Academy and this book by Cassandra Clare and I look forward reading more of her books soon.
So this was a compilation of Magnus Bane short stories and they were amazing to say the least. It starts with a journey with Ragnor and their friendship. You learn about the Hotel Dumont and how it got it's start. Then you learn about how Rafael turned and how he knows Magnus. There were so many great tales in this book and it has made me want to go back and try reading the Infernal Devices series again.
As for the audiobook itself...I wasn't as big a fan of it but I didn't have my copy of the book. I loved the stories and the writing but the narrator(s) made it feel slow and drug on in parts. I wish there was more depth to the narrator(s) because it felt very monotone and flat to me. Other than the narration it was an excellent read and I would totally recommend the books as a whole.
4 magical stars!
