I have had the opportunity to read each one of these and thought I would write a review while I am thinking about it.
Firstly, I absolutely love Cassandra Clare's writing style and thoroughly enjoyed The Mortal Instruments and the Clockwork Series. I am always the last person to jump on board of awesome series, but that's ok.
The Bane Chronicles is written by Sarah Rees Brennan and Cassandra Clare. I feel Sarah does a good job of keeping the heart and soul of Magnus' character. I started to fall in love with that character halfway through The Mortal Instruments series and I have really enjoyed reading these. The Midnight Heir was wonderful. It gave another look to Will and Tessa's life together and their child, James Herondale. I love how Magnus makes me laugh in these little glimpses into his life. The backstory is superb!
If you are a lover of the Mortal Instruments world, I would recommend you to pick up these novellas. They are only available online in e-book format (which is a little disappointing considering each one is 2.99, and there are 8 of them ($24 bucks total!). I feel that is a marketing scheme to get more money from the readers, but I digress. I can't complain too much because although I see through the ploy to earn more casholla, I am the fool who purchases them. Whenever the series is finished they plan to release a novel with all of the stories so you may want to wait until then, but I couldn't.
