The Bane Chronicles’ The Last Stand is Available…Somewhere

tbc-09-coverIf you’re in the situation I’m in right now, then you’re probably frustrated at the moment.  As it goes, The Bane Chronicles: The Last Stand of the New York Institute is supposed to be available for purchase today for all e-readers.  However, Barnes & Noble (yep, I even work there), has yet to make this available for some reason.

Apparently, there were some issues with getting the latest Bane story out internationally as well through, and I’m not sure if they’re still having issues.  Hopefully this will be resolved very, very soon.  These are the types of issues that’s only bearable for a few hours, if that.

In the meantime, you can check out the almost finished puzzle of all the Bane Chronicles book covers below.



THE BANE CHRONICLES’ ‘What To Buy the Shadowhunter Who Has Everything’ Cover Reveal


This month’s Bane Chronicles novella is due to be released on November 19th, and this one looks to be a super exciting one for Malec fans (that’s assuming the “Shadowhunter” in reference is Alec Lightwood).

And yes, tis the season for giving, and coincidentally, we’ll be talking about shopping for the Shadowhunter fan in this week’s Shadowhunters’ Stelecast, so we hope you’ll join join us during our podcast!

Shadowhunters Stelecast Episode 25: Magnusficence at the Hotel Deux-mort


We’re going to use “Magnusficence” until Ellie can say it without flubbing!  Anyway, Tuesday brought in part 7 of The Bane Chronicles, and we see that Magnus Bane apparently can’t help but make another trip to Hotel Dumort, in The Fall of the Hotel Dumort.  Who could be there to lure him back after the tragedy of the last known experience he’s had there?  This time, it’s those bloody vampires again that drag him there, but which one?  Could it be a possible vampire baroness from generations past?  Or could it be a suave, forever teen-looking vampire of Latin descent?  (BTW, contrary to the what the title might suggest, I don’t know if any French-speaking characters will make an appearance in the story.)


Be warned!  Spoilers will abound on this latest foray into Magnus Bane’s life.

But before that, we’ll have some announcements of what’s going on in the Shadowhunter world, including a peak into The Shadowhunter’s Codex.
