Publisher's Summary

In Edwardian London, Magnus Bane discovers old friends and new enemies... including the son of his former comrade Will Herondale. One of ten adventures in The Bane Chronicles.
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.
This standalone short story illuminates the life of the enigmatic Magnus Bane, whose alluring personality populates the pages of the #1 New York Times bestselling series The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices. This story in The Bane Chronicles, The Midnight Heir, is written by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan.

Just kind of leaves you hanging.

Okay I understand this short book is another of Magus stories, and that he should be the primary focus of it. In fact it annoys me when the a story about someone focuses on someone else. However in this case it seems like there is a larger story that Magus is just a small portion of and you are only being given a glimpse of his role in the story and nothing else. It seems incomplete, like you started in the middle of a story read a chapter and then stopped.

They changed narrators again for this one, he is not bad, not great but not bad, the 3rd book still has the best choice for Bane voice in my opinion. As far as telling of the story he did a decent job.

Oh Magnus

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I'm really not sure. Seems like this book was over before it really ever started.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I love the Herondales. Will and Tessa

Do you think The Midnight Heir needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Well knowing that it is part of a short story collection no. But feeling as if a lot was left out there...... Yes. I need answers
