The Bane Chronicles: Saving Raphael Santiago

‘Word had spread throughout New York that Magnus was the warlock who would get you out of a jam. There was a Sanctuary, too, up in Brooklyn, if you needed to hide, but the witch who ran it didn’t solve your problems. Magnus solved problems. So why not get paid for it?’

Story: Saving Raphael Santiago

Authors: Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan

Book: The Bane Chronicles – Book #6

Genres: Vampires, Fantasy, YA, Short Story

Hello, dearies! 🦇

I’m trying a new thing for Thursdays or Fridays, a sort of Throwback post or Flashback, and I thought this one would be perfect for it as The Bane Chronicles is a throwback indeed or a flashback if you must, at least for me.

As Today is Thursday, this is the first Throwback Thursday book review, thoughts.

Saving Raphael Santiago it’s not all that engraved in my mind, don’t ask me why because I cannot recall, but it was of the stories in The Bane Chronicles, so of course, I had to read it.

Stranger Things Season 4 – Part 1: Wow

Hello, dearies! ✉️

Did you watch it? Have you watched it yet?

Stranger Things Season 4 is now available, and all that promises it delivers, you can watch all of it now, or wait until July for the second part and binge-watch the whole season, I would have done that, but I couldn’t wait anymore, I wanted to see now, now, go, go.

It’s so good. And Jamie Campbell Bower is there, so he makes it all better. Like wherever he is, you are entranced by his role, and you want to know more about it. 🎥

The Bane Chronicles: The Rise of the Hotel Dumort

‘At least a pretty flapper vampire talking nonsense was better than a slobbering drunk werewolf. Magnus nodded as if listening and mentally counted the bottles of brandy and rum in the storage shelves below the bar.’

The Bane Chronicles Book #5

Authors: Cassandra Clare & Maureen Johnson

Genre: Fantasy, YA, Short Stories, Paranormal, Vampires.

Hello, dearies! 🦇

With this one, The Rise of the Hotel Dumort, we jumped ahead in time to 1929, and not only that but New York, meaning the place where The Mortal Instruments will be lively, in the future; but we are still years away from that, and we experience the Hotel Dumort and what happened to it and their vampires. 🧛

This is a tale we wanted to know about from the TMI series, where we read about the Hotel and the past, and Magnus, so we go there and check out the events. I know I’m not saying that much, but this story is worth reading for the first time with an unbias look, so I’ll leave it to Magnus to tell you the story.

The Bane Chronicles: The Midnight Heir

The One that we didn’t see coming and after we read it, we fell in love with yet another Herondale boy.

The Bane Chronicles Book 4

Authors: Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan

Genre: Fantasy, YA, Short Story, Magic, Urban.

Hello, dearies! Now, this one, wow. It’s one of my favourites in this collection. 🙂

It was supposed to be an easy one because I loved it, but thinking about the story, I remembered what it means for the rest of the shadowhunter world, and how anything I say may affect the story on the books that came after.

Mild spoilers ahead, you’ve been warned. 🖍️

The Bane Chronicles: Vampires, Scones, and Edmund Herondale

“The marvelous thing about being a creature of the night,” she confided in a low voice, “is that one need never wear anything but evening clothes.”
Camille Belcourt

The Banes Chronicles Book 3

Authors: Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan

Genre: YA, fantasy, Short Story, Paranormal

Here we are once again, dearies! I trust all is going well on your end, and you’re enjoying these tidbits on The Bane Chronicles, or perhaps my other reviews, they’re all on the main page, as you might know.

Now, we’re on the 3rd story in The Bane Chronicles, the one where we see vampires and Herondales, and scones too. I will always enjoy a good Herondale story, but this one was set in 1857 when even Charlotte Fairchild was a young girl, and that just makes you think how old Magnus really is, but no matter, we already knew that.

Interview with the Vampire

“It was as if when I looked into his eyes I was standing alone on the edge of the world…on a windswept ocean beach. There was nothing but the soft roar of the waves.”

Author: Anne Rice 

Genre: Gothic, Horror, Vampire 🧛

This one is not going to be easy. 

Hello, dearies! I barely remember the details but the general idea instead since it was such a long time ago that I read Interview with the Vampire, what I do remember is thinking how darkly different it was from the movie. 

Of course, I had watched the movie before reading the book, but when I read this book, it was a real eye-opener for my young mind.

Hello, dearies!

Ghosts of the Shadow Market: The Wicked Ones
