The Last Stand of the New York Institute (The Bane Chronicles #9) by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan and Maureen Johnson (4 Stars)
Here is a story I didn’t know that I wanted to read about and when I did it was wonderful, satisfying and enlightening. I feel like I’ve learned so much in this one story. It gave the kind of background information that had been missing to make a complete picture. And now I have it.
The Rise of the Hotel Dumort (The Bane Chronicles #5) by Cassandra Clare and Maureen Johnson (4.8 Stars)
New York, Late September 1929. For those who read my edition, this is vital information. As it took me a while to find out the year this story takes place. I started reading, thinking it was 1903, but the fashion, laws, and economic disasters didn’t make sense.
What really happened in Peru (The Bane Chronicles #1) by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan (3.8 Stars)
The first thing I noticed while reading was the language; wonderful, old-fashioned, educated language. I really enjoy reading that! It fit the time, expressions used to describe Magnus, and his way of speaking and thinking.
