The penultimate installment of The Bane Chronicles arrives next week (Dec. 17), but you can see the cover today. The Last Stand of the New York Institute (written by Cassandra Clare, Maureen Johnson, and Sarah Rees Brennan) was originally scheduled as the final novella in the spin-off series, but jumped ahead in the publication schedule. Here’s the official description: “In the time of the Uprising, Valentine’s Circle goes after Downworlders in New York…and the Shadowhunters of the Institute must decide whether to join him, or fight with Magnus and his kind. This is the first time Magnus sees Jocelyn, Luke, and Stephen—but not the last. It is not long before Jocelyn seeks him out….”
There’s only one more ebook in the series. Are you excited about the conclusion? Check back next month for the final cover reveal.
What to Buy the Shadowhunter Who Has Everything (And Who You’re Not Officially Dating Anway), the eighth installment of The Bane Chronicles, became available yesterday. But what do you buy the Shadowhunter who has everything? At the risk of sounding too meta, may we suggest the audiobook version of the latest novella? Here us out: Jordan Gavaris, best known for playing Felix on Orphan Black, lends his narration skills to the ebook. And in the process, he joins the likes of Jesse Williams, David Oyelowo, and Michael Trevino—all of whom have narrated an installment from Magnus Bane-centric series. In this exclusive clip, listen to co-author Cassandra Clare and Gavaris chat about the story and dissect Magnus and Alec’s relationship. Then, check out an exclusive excerpt from the audiobook.

The title of the newest Bane Chronicles novella really does beg the question: What do you buy a Shadowhunter who has everything? The eighth installment, appropriately titled What to Buy the Shadowhunter Who Has Everything (And Who You’re Not Officially Dating Anyway), hopes to explore that very issue. Set in the time between City of Ashes and City of Glass, Magnus Bane searches for the best possible birthday present for Alec Lightwood. Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan helmed No. 8, which comes out Nov. 19. Check Shelf Life next month for the cover reveal of the penultimate ebook.
The rise comes before the fall. (I know it’s technically “pride,” but I think Magnus Bane would still approve.) The fifth installment of The Bane Chronicles was titled The Rise of the Hotel Dumort. And the seventh installment, which debuts Oct. 15, is aptly titled The Fall of the Hotel Dumort. From the official description: “Magnus Bane watches the once-glamorous Hotel Dumort become something else altogether in 1970s New York City. Fifty years after the Jazz Age rise of the Hotel Dumort, immortal warlock Magnus Bane knows the Manhattan landmark is on the decline. The once-beautiful Hotel Dumort has fallen into a decayed thing, a ruin, as dead as a place can be. But the vampires don’t mind…” Cassandra Clare and Maureen Johnson teamed up for Fall. Make sure you check back next month for cover reveal No. 8.
The sixth installment of The Bane Chronicles is almost here! In Saving Raphael Santiago (out Sept. 17), Raphael goes missing, and his distraught mother hires Magnus Bane to track him down. Of course, that’s assuming Raphael can be found. But if anyone can do it, it’s likely the series’ titular character. Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan paired up for SRS. Check back next month for the release of No. 7, The Fall of Hotel Dumort.
Is that Magnus Bane I see? The cover of The Rise of the Hotel Dumort—the fifth installment of The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare and Maureen Johnson—is the first to feature a significant part of Magnus’ face. And he’s looking good, if I do say so myself. Hotel Dumort (out Aug. 20) is set in the 1920s Manhattan, and the titular character is making the most of his time in the Roaring Twenties. From the official description: “[Magnus Bane is] settled into New York society and is thriving among the fashionable jazz set. And there is nowhere better to see and be seen than the glamorous Hotel Dumort, a glittering new addition to the Manhattan landscape. But a different type of glamour may be at play…”

It’s that time again, Magnus Bane fans! The Midnight Heir, the fourth installment of The Bane Chronicles series (co-written by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan) comes out July 16, but the cover is here today. Here’s the official description for Heir: “Magnus thought he would never return to London, but he is lured by a handsome offer from Tatiana Blackthorn, whose plans—involving her beautiful young ward—are far more sinister than Magnus even suspects. In London at the turn of the century, Magnus finds old friends, and meets a very surprising young man…the sixteen-year-old James Herondale.”
