The completion of "The Bane Chronicles"

On February 18 the final installment in The Bane Chronicles, "The Course of True Love (and First Dates)" will be available on your ebook. Over the last year fans have enjoyed the collection of stories detailing various events in the life of Magnus Bane. The collaboration between authors Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, and Maureen Johnson has been hilarious, witty and fun. Bane is the high warlock of Brooklyn in Clare's The Mortal Instruments series. One of the most thrilling aspects of this beloved character is his immortality. Bane is the only main character who we also see in Clare's The Infernal Devices series. Many fans hope that he'll fair through the events in "The City of Heavenly Fire" and live on the star in Clare's other planned Shadowhunter projects.

The Bane Chronicles will be published and available in stores as a combined collection sometime later this year. I really like how the ebook covers act as a puzzle. We just have one more reveal before it's complete!
