Friday 56: The Bane Chronicles By Cassandra Clare

This is a weekly meme hosted by Freda's Voice

These are the rules:
1. Grab a book, any book.
2. Turn to page 56, or 56% on your eReader.
3. Find any sentence (or a few, just don't spoil it) that grabs you.
4. Post it.
5. Add the URL to your post in the link on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post.

I got my Bane Chronicles in the bind up form, because I liked that better than buying each short story separately.
This particular one comes from the short story of The Runaway Queen.
"While in France, immortal warlock Magnus Bane finds himself attempting to rescue the royal family from the horrors of the French Revolution—after being roped into this mess by a most attractive count. Naturally, the daring escape calls for invisible air balloons…"

I gotta say, Magnus Bane is my favorite Downworlder
from the Shadowhunter books.

Page 56:
     "Still. If one could look this fabulous, one had an obligation to. One should wear everything, or one should wear nothing at all."


  1. I still need to read these. That quote is typical Magnus... lol

    1. It's a great read. Magnus is the best. I am waiting until all the Shadowhunter Academy books are done and made into a Bind-up like these to read them.

      Thanks for following. :) Happy weekend.

  2. Love the 56! I'm not sure if this is the series is for me but the quote is fantastic.

    1. If you're a fan of Cassie's writing, or a fan of Magnus Bane, then you might like these. We get to meet more of the Herondale line in these short stories as well, so that's always a plus.

  3. I feel like I read this one... I'd have to go search my blog though to see for sure, but I think so.
    Happy weekend!
