The Bane Chronicles were amazing and grew our never ending love for Magnus. Now, we have more to look forward to. It was announced this AM that Cassie Clare will be releasing a new series, all about Magnus Bane.
The series will explore the life and times of Magnus Bane and will be co-written by bestselling author Wesley Chu. The first book is slated to be published in November 2017.
Why is everything in 2017 and so far away?
The series was picked up by Saga Press, an imprint of Simon and Schuster.
“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.”
We’re excited to find out more about Magnus and can’t wait to see what Cassie and Wesley write!
