And that plan of hers was so incredibly stupid. She actually got Magnus all the way from New York and now told him that he will be paid for killing 5 Shadowhunters.
And even if that was for the darkest of dark spells , there must be plenty of powerful and more willing warlocks all over Europe, why not get one of them? And she wants to use him but insults him at the same time and when he refuses actually lets him go.
Apparently the authors do not know that crazy doesn't equal stupid. Her background was just plain weird and messes up Clare's family tree and if her son Jesse was too weak for the marks why did the Shadowhunters mark him anyway? This makes no sense, why do such a thing if he could fulfill other roles? And when this book finally attempts to add some substance to it by having Tatiana saying My pain is all that I have left they instantly bulldoze it by making her act like a spoiled and cosseted daughter.
Grace is just there there to be a beauty unlike the beauty of most mortals and the reason for James's suicidal behavior, and to whine how badly Magnus was treated by Camille. That Magnus does not fall for her is probably simply because she has no cock, after all in all the books he is only head over heels for guys, females seem to have to spend effort. Is it really remarkable? Based on the last book Camille seems on the self-possession level of a sixteen year old girl. By using Grace the authors once again reveal their ignorance regarding mythology since they refer to Grace's eyes as deep alluring lakes with sirens in their depths.
Sirens are birds mixed with women to varying degrees and lived on islands and not in lakes.
What she refers to are mermaids or water nymphs. James's portrayal leaves no doubt that he is Jace again: An excellent shot even when extremely drunk and his beauty is compared to that of Helen of Troy. He has shining golden eyes that were as bright as the jewels in a dragon's hoard. A tortured soul and his behavior is not only self-destructive but downright suicidal Magnus had to drag him out of the water.
He supposedly does not want to trouble his parents with it, but stays nonetheless, of course before Grace came along he was a "good boy. I must perform all the terrible deeds I have promised.
For am I not a man of my word? I want to preserve my honor. Magnus knew well enough from Edmund and Will what it meant when a Herondale gave his heart away. It was not a gift that could be returned. Wow what a subtle way of saying that Jace will never ever ever leave Clary. In a drunken state James did not only ask whether absinthe had turned Ragnor green or made him look green to James, bad writing again he also made amorous advances on many people including Magnus whom he referred to as a lady since its custom in the Clareverse to make advances on Magnus.
Or anyone else available for that matter. James has the power to turn into a shadow, which he supposedly inherited it from Tessa.
Who has Magnus as a friend does not need enemies Magnus is totally whimsical again; you notice it early on in the book. And he had not yet grown tired of the pageantry of ordinary life and ordinary people, despite the passage of time and the fact that people were all very much the same in the end. Also he always found mortals to be beautiful, and had seen many mortals whom anybody would have described as beautiful. This is totally out of character for Magnus, he is constantly and quickly annoyed by people and clearly only falls for certain types in all the other books he even wastes precious time to stare at James' beauty despite the boy nearly drowning seconds before.
And he absolutely never surrounded himself with ordinary people and ordinary things. The book claims that Magnus was generally good at reading people. How can anybody be good at it when they suddenly notice that the person in front of them is extremely drunk?
You would smell that the first moment you get near them; or even before that when they happen to speak in your direction. Or speak in generally since extremely drunk people are known for being unable to articulate properly, as every half-wit teenager knows. And if the claim is true why was Camille his latest and most regrettable real love? Would he be what he claims he would not have acted like a child, fancying there were shapes and stories to be made of the clouds in the sky in regards to his relationship with Camille.
Trust me that is not all, Magnus is more than years old by the time of this book but his knowledge of human nature and intelligence seem to be on the level of Spongebob Squarepants. He only considers his job to be suspicious when he is in front of Tatiana and she told him about her plan, no hint that he had any suspicions before, despite the fact that she got him from New York and they meet in London, seriously, of course there must be something behind it all.
And there is more: And when seeing Grace's determination he says that it only then occurred to him that a child might be so grateful to be taken in that her loyalty would be fierce , that she wants to stay with Tatiana and help her with her plans.
How can it be that he didn't know that already? At his age, how can he be so ignorant? And these constant attempts to make Magnus sympathetic by claiming he gets unjustly treated and actually has morality usually reserved for James and similar people might be the second worst part of this book. Despite all the whining about Magnus's past and all, when Tatiana tells him that she doesn't consider herself a Shadowhunter, first thing he asks is whether she thinks she is a lamp shade.
And upon her next statement he asks whether she thinks she is a pianoforte. And what he tells her later which he claims to have said to Catherine the Great is just cheesy, pointless and plain stupid, not a good combination in front of a person that is obviously crazy. Seriously the authors throw this crap at us to sympathize with him but whenever people antagonize Magnus in the books its usually due to his own behavior.
This guy has the diplomatic sensibility of a rampaging rhino! Why is this guy still alive? Somebody must have tried to kill him already simply for being annoying. And his attitude towards Will shifts on a moment's notice without giving Will, whom he fancied just hours before, a hint of doubt.
He just states that Will back then searched for a convenient source of magic and that even the best Shadowhunters were not so different from the rest.
I swear I did not manipulate this, it happens really as quickly as it sounds. But it doesn't end there, oh no, not even closely. Towards the end of the book he actually says that he could warn Downworlders to steer clear of Tatiana and her endeavors but he did not tell his oh so great friends about Tatiana and Grace. Despite saying that the two might have cast a spell on James, but he could not see why they would, and knowing full well that either way Grace has a horrific impact on James, he states that there was no reason for Magnus to tell Will and Tessa what he had learned.
Magnus had told the boy he would never betray his secrets; he had sworn it. I am nearly at a loss of words here: He seriously does not tell them despite James having displayed extremely self-destructive, antisocial and downright suicidal behavior.
I think they could do a lot with the information as to what the source of James' affliction and behavior is. Hell if he is really under a spell perhaps they can find someone who can break it. Heck Magnus doesn't even seem to want to try. And he justifies this behavior by saying that he would not break his word. A little bit of perspective would be nice here. But no, the word has to be kept.
Not only is it totally idiotic to give that word in the first place but to actually keep it is even worse. It even states: It would be ironic, Magnus thought, terribly and cruelly ironic, for one Herondale to be saved by love, and another Herondale damned by it.
And yet Magnus does nothing, nothing! He just walks away. And he did not want to care what Shadowhunters thought of him.
He did not want to care what would become of them or their children. He literally thought that. Magnus Bane is the worst friend you could ever have. This guy is such a hypocritical coward it is sickening to read about him. And he is supposed to be the hero. Gosh, can this series get any worse? View all 32 comments.
This story probably would have meant more to me IF I have read the Infernal Devices series, so I reserve the right to change my rating until I do.
For now I didn't connect with it because the other characters were too new for me, having nothing to add to my already existent connection. Still I got to see the Herondales of old and Brother Zachariah: View all 10 comments. Jul 18, Alicia rated it really liked it Shelves: Wow, he is so similar yet so different from his father. Truth be told, this is the second book of the Bane Chronicles that I have read yes I know I said I wanted to read the third one, Vampires, Scones and Edmund Herondale because it has a Herondale in it but I couldn't get round to reading it.
James Herondale is a very interesting character.
He has been surrounded by love all his life of course he has, he IS the son of Will and Tessa after all! James had given his heart to this girl, Magnus thought, and Magnus knew well enough from Edmund and Will what it meant when a Herondale gave his heart away.
Yep, that line right there just sums it up. James gave his heart away, and Grace I'm guessing sent it right back at him, with a blade pierced into its very core. Since then, he personality has completely changed and he begins to estrange himself from his everyone, including his family. The thing is though, only Magnus knows about this even James doesn't know that he knows and he chooses not to tell James's secret to anyone, as it wasn't his to tell. The book ends with Magnus halting a carriage and asking the driver to "take him home".
Immediately after I finished the novella, I grabbed Clockwork Princess off my shelf and looked to the family tree. In there, it shows that James Herondale is married Cordelia Carstairs. And even more mysterious, is that Lucie Herondale James's sister is shown to be married to Jesse Blackthorn, the biological son of Tatiana Blackthorn.
In the novella, however, Tatiana mentions that her son was really weak and sickly, and that she was told that her son could not live anymore when he was sixteen. I had one child, my beautiful boy, my Jesse, but he could not be trained to be a warrior. He was always so weak, so sickly.
I begged them not to put the runes on him—I was certain that would kill him—but the Shadowhunters held me back and held him down as they burned the Marks into his flesh. He screamed and screamed.
We all thought he would die then, but he did not. He held on for me, for his mama, but their cruelty damned him. Each year he grew sicker and weaker until it was too late.
He was sixteen when they told me he could not live. The favourite part of the book for me has to be the part where we meet Will, Tessa and Jem again in the Institute. I love the three of them so much and it was really interesting to see the motherly side of Tessa.
And Will, oh dear Will. You haven't changed a bit even after 25 years, have you?: When Magnus and Tessa both agree that James actions are very much like Will's when he was James age, this is what he replied: The only thing I think I have to get used to is the writing style.
I am really, really sorry Sarah but if frankly, I wish that Cassie had written the book by herself. View all 21 comments. Apr 04, Christina rated it really liked it Shelves: Was this my sneak peek into Chain of Thorns, Cassie Clare's yet to be released Shadowhunter series centered in and dealing with the next generation after TID series??
Because I need more! I really enjoyed this but was so frustrated at the end because I feel like it just opened up tons of questions Ok, so it's Magnus has returned to London after 25 years spent in New York. He comes across a 3.
He comes across a drunk young man doing some really stupid and dangerous things, who just happens to be James Herondale Magnus takes James home to the London Institute where we see Tessa, who is pretty much the same as she was before and Will, who is now in his middle age. He looked just as handsome as he had ever been -- more so perhaps, since he seemed so much happier.
Magnus saw more marks of laughter than of time on his face, and found himself smiling. It was true what Will had said, he realized.
They were friends. But seriously, I need more of this story! View all 5 comments. Expected publication: I don't even want to know anymore. Best Bane Chronicle so far! I fell for James when he proclamed himself king of the ducks? I love their relationship, and when James called Jem "uncle Jem" I was crying tears of joy. So beautiful. I really missed the TID crew.
And there is nowhere better to see and be seen than the glamorous Hotel Dumort, a glittering new addition to the Manhattan landscape. But a different type of glamour may be at play But even if he can be found, is Raphael beyond saving? The once-beautiful Hotel Dumort has fallen into a decayed thing, a ruin, as dead as a place can be.
But the vampires don't mind Magnus Bane may or may not be dating Alec Lightwood, but he definitely needs to find him the perfect birthday present.
