Publisher's Summary

In 1920s Manhattan, Magnus Bane hobnobs with the elite at a glamorous Jazz Age hotspot. One of ten adventures in The Bane Chronicles.

The immortal Magnus Bane is making the most of his time in the Roaring Twenties: He’s 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…

This standalone e-only 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 series. This story in The Bane Chronicles, The Rise of the Hotel Dumort, is written by Cassandra Clare and Maureen Johnson.

    "Just painful"
    What did you like best about The Rise of the Hotel Dumort? What did you like least?

    Well I can say what I liked the least was the narrator. Stephen Lunsford was just not Magnus for me. He was very flat.


    Has The Rise of the Hotel Dumort turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How could the performance have been better?

    Put a little life into it. He was so flat and boring.

    "Finally, Bane just the way you like it."

    Nice complete story with supporting characters who are whole, a beginning at the start, a tasty middle, and a hero's ending.

    Of the Chronicles thus far, this shows Magnus as I know and love him.

    "The Vampire Hotel"

    Great background into the history of the infamous Hotel Dumort. It's a cool part of history, not the made up hotel, but the era in which this takes place.

    Story
    "the point?"

    I know the Hotel Dumort is an important location, and I guess this gave a little background to it. But I have finished it wondering what the point was behind it. The telling of the story is good, and I can not condemn the narrator.

    Its just that the few tiny bits of information the story revel seem like they could have been reveled in a story that actually had some level of importance and not leave the listener going "i just listened to an hour and half for that?" At least that is how I feel about the book as a whole.

    This whole series has been hit or miss, some are good, some are average, some are barely okay, at least so far none have been absolute horrible.

    Story
    "Unbeliable"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because this is the best book of all until now.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Rise of the Hotel Dumort?

    Everything that happens at the end of the book, beginning when Magnus faced his friend, and the discovers what happened on the hotel, and everthing that follow after this.... I'd never imagined.


    What does Stephen Lunsford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Nothing to say about it.


    If you could rename The Rise of the Hotel Dumort, what would you call it?

    I would say: "When the Hotel Dumont turns on Hotel Dumort"


    Any additional comments?

    No.
