REVIEW: The Runaway Queen (The Bane Chronicles Part #2) by Cassandra Clare & Maureen Johnson

The Runaway Queen (The Bane Chronicles Part #2)
Released: May 21, 2013
By Cassandra Clare and Maureen Johnson


Magnus Bane has a royal role in the French Revolution—if the angry mobs don’t spoil his spells. One of ten adventures in The Bane Chronicles.

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…

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 Timesbestselling series, The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices series. This story in The Bane Chronicles, The Runaway Queen, is written by Maureen Johnson and Cassandra Clare.


So, I finally found the time to read The Runaway Queen, the second installment of The Bane Chronicles. I absolutely loved it! I was pleasantly surprised to find Magnus having helped in trying to get Queen Marie Antoinette away from Paris during the French Revolution, yes I know in actuality he didn't since he's a fictional character. I saw a whole new side to Magnus in this story and fell more deeply in love with him. His interactions with Axel were just too sweet & made me feel all warm inside. I hope to read the most recently released installment of The Bane Chronicles soon and have another review up for you all shortly after. :D ~V
