Remember when Cassie, Sarah and Maureen had a big announcement for us? We thought we were going to have it last week, but we had to wait another whole week. Well here it is guys! THE BANE CHRONICLES!! Yes you read correctly, THE BANE CHRONICLES! As we all know, The High Warlock, Magnus Bane, is in both The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments. Cassandra Clare is teaming up with Sarah Rees Brennan and Maureen Johnson to bring it to us.
"We bring to you THE BANE CHRONICLES, chronicling (you see what we did there) Magnus’s adventures through the ages.
Have you ever wondered about Magnus’s past loves and lies? Magnus and Alec’s first date? How Magnus and Camille got together? What happened in Peru? Starting in February 2013, in the run-up to City of Handsome Magnus: the Movie (Also Starring Some Other People Who Are Pretty Good-Looking) we will put out a Magnus Short Story every month.
There will be ten of Magnus’s magnificent adventures all in all. Some of them Cassie and I are writing, some of them Cassie and Maureen are writing, some Cassie is writing herself as we cruelly abandon her! All of them, we think, are lots of fun."
Starting in February, one story will be released every month in e-book format up until the release of THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES on August 23, 2013. In 2014, the stories will go to print in a single book.
Check out the post that from Sarah on Tumblr here and the article from Entertainment Weekly here.
I don't know about you guys, but we are very excited about THE BANE CHRONICLES! What do you guys think?
