The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, and Maureen Johnson
I liked the Infernal Devices series.
I am just tired of them now.
Here is my pet peeve.
I read the books years ago - they have very detailed and intricate story lines. Magnus is an important character - but honestly I have forgotten most of the details of his part.
Now this book comes up and it makes me feel like I am on the outside of the cool kids inside jokes. I wish there would more background - or more connections or something.
So - I did enjoy most of the later stories - the first few really fell flat. But the very last story was by far the most frustrating for me. I can't remember anything of the events.
I didn't like this book nearly as much as I did the others.
Shucks - I really wanted to because I liked Magnus!
