Publisher's Summary

Magnus Bane watches the once-glamorous Hotel Dumort become something else altogether in 1970s New York City. One of ten adventures in The Bane Chronicles.

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…

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 best-selling series, The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices series. This story in The Bane Chronicles, The Fall of the Hotel Dumort, is written by Cassandra Clare and Maureen Johnson.

    Story
    "not bad"

    Okay this one was a good story, and good narration, but I just didn't enjoy it. I was amused to see them integrate the New York Black out from a few years back. The story is actually a good one of the New York Vampires, and of course Magus Saving them. He saves a lot of people, something I expected of him yet in many cases it makes him seem weak, I am not sure why they way he is presented in this light annoys me.

    I can't say much about this story. It just didn't strike a cord with me, I was kind of bored with it and wanted it over even if it was a good telling.

    I am a book junkie that can't read in moving vehicles with an hour long commute (public transit). Audiobooks save my life!

    Story
    "Robotic Reader Avoid this one"

    I adore Magnus Bane! He is by far my favorite character in the Shadow Hunter books. I love the way Cassandra Claire writes him. I do not like the way Cecil Baldwin performs this particular book.

    His voice is monotone and very robotic. It very much detracts from this book. I have a kindle and when I use the text to speech it is a robotic voice. That robotic voice has more emotion than this guy.

    Definitely buy the one before this one called Saving Raphael Santiago but steer clear of this one. Maybe the next one will be better.

    "narrator was difficult to deal with."

    The narrator was awful. I almost turned it off. If it had been more than 2 hours i would have.

    "Interesting Story, Poor Narrator"

    I enjoy any story about Magnus Bane.
    The narrator reads just fine but was a horrible Magnus Bane voice. Just sayin.
    I'd like them to have stuck w/ Gareth David-Lloyd (The Course of True Love).
