Magnus is my favorite Mortal Instruments character. I love his sass and the way he talks, so having a whole book dedicated to him and his adventures was a dream come true. I loved reading about Magnus’s history and his past loves. I’m really happy with how true the book stayed to all the characters’ traits and personalities from other books. I also enjoyed watching Magnus meet all the characters and how he felt about them. I think my favorites were Vampires, Scones, and Edmund Herondale, The Midnight Heir, and The Voice Mail of Magnus Bane.
It was a great group of short stories that really helped give insight onto Magnus and his character. If you’ve read the Infernal Devices and Mortal Instruments and love Magnus, then check this out!
