Our favorite high warlock is getting a new series.
Following Magnus Bane’s adventures in The Bane Chronicles, Cassandra Clare is following up with a new adult series that will explore the life and times of Magnus Bane.
The three-book series will be co-written by bestselling author Wesley Chu with the first book set for a November 2017 release.
“Over the years writing the Shadowhunter books, Magnus Bane has emerged as one of the most fun and fascinating characters for me to bring to life,” said Cassandra Clare. “He’s always had a lot of secrets — there are so many things we don’t know about Magnus, from the story of his first love, to the secrets of his parentage, to the beginning of his relationship with Alec. All those are things I was able to touch on in The Bane Chronicles, but I’m excited to dig in even more deeply in these three volumes devoted to Magnus, his past, his future, and his present.”
Wesley Chu added, “I am so excited to contribute to the world that Cassandra Clare has created. These books and characters are iconic, and Magnus is a fan favorite. I can’t wait to give them all the things they deserve. And probably a few they don’t. Sorry, Magnus.”
“Magnus Bane has quickly become one of the most complex and iconographic characters in fantasy,” said Chanda, “I am sure fans will be thrilled find out more about his life and times. I certainly am!”
