The Last Stand of the New York Institute by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan and Maureen Johnson

Published: December 2013
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Pages: 40
Copy Provided by: Bought
Summary: Goodreads

Magnus meets Valentine in battle as the Circle attacks the Downworlders of New York City.

In the time of the Uprising, Valentine’s Circle goes after Downworlders in New York...and the Shadowhunters of the Institute must decide whether to join him, or fight with Magnus and his kind. This is the first time Magnus sees Jocelyn, Luke, and Stephen—but not the last. It is not long before Jocelyn seeks him out...

Ah Magnus...he is definitely one of my favorite characters in the Mortal Instruments series. Not only that but to see him cross over into the Infernal Devices series is BRILLIANT!!  Oh to be privy to the stories of his life....oh wait! But we are! With the Bane Chronicles, we learn more about his experiences.  He links the Infernal Devices characters with the Mortal Instruments cast.  Kind of like a long lost relative.  Cassandra Clare ties together all of these neat little puzzle pieces!

So for the past couple weeks I have been trying to read Books 2 - 5 of the Mortal Instruments series as a refresher before I dive into the 6th and final book - City of Heavenly Fire.  However, as much as I love this series, its kind of like having a big heavy meal.  Sometimes you just need a snack.  This is what I've been snacking on...the Bane Chronicles.  :)
