    There are good reasons Peru is off-limits to Magnus Bane. Follow Magnus’s Peruvian escapades as he drags his fellow warlocks Ragnor Fell and Catarina Loss into trouble, learns several instruments (which he plays shockingly), dances (which he does shockingly), and disgraces his host nation by doing something unspeakable to the Nazca Lines.

    Entertaining

    I am new to this series, having read only The City of Bones so far. I am listening to these short stories and enjoying them a lot. I like Magnus and e..Show More »

    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.

    Just kind of leaves you hanging.

    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…

    Just painful

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

    I think any audio version is better then the print version. I feel more into the story with the audio version.
