Trivia Edit

  • In City of Heavenly Fire, Magnus gave Alec Lightwood a notebook containing stories that shaped his life, which he wrote in the weeks following their breakup. The Bane Chronicles is either all or a part of the stories contained in this notebook, itself.[1]
  • The print, hardcover edition will feature a bonus mini-story (The Voicemail of Magnus Bane) and 10 illustrated scenes or comics drawn by Cassandra Jean.
  • The Rise of the Hotel Dumort and The Fall of the Hotel Dumort was originally teased as one story: The Rise and Fall of the Hotel Dumort. Its separation may have either resulted from or caused the removal of certain stories from the original set of 10 online released e-books.
    • No Immortal Can Keep a Secret was originally intended to be released as the seventh story on October 15, 2013, co-written with Maureen Johnson. However, it was removed from the final compilation at one point while the first few installments were still being released in e-book form. (Synopsis: Magnus at the turn of the 20th century decides to try this new "psychoanalysis" with Dr. Freud. But clearly the doctor has no experience to help deal with a centuries-old warlock with a very complicated dating history and some very unusual father issues.)
    • The Letter, for which no synopsis and spoilers were given, was supposed to be a separate installment released as the tenth story on December 31, 2013.[2] It was instead worked into City of Heavenly Fire and removed from the chronicles.[3]
