The Red Scrolls of Magic
The Red Scrolls of Magic | Cassandra Clare, Wesley Chu
From #1 New York Times bestseller Cassandra Clare and award-winner Wesley Chu comes the first book in a new series that follows High Warlock Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood as they tour the world after the Mortal War. The Red Scrolls of Magic is a Shadowhunters novel. All Magnus Bane wanted was a vacation—a lavish trip across Europe with Alec Lightwood, the Shadowhunter who against all odds is finally his boyfriend. But as soon as the pair settles in Paris, an old friend arrives with news about a demon-worshipping cult called the Crimson Hand that is bent on causing chaos around the world. A cult that was apparently founded by Magnus himself. Years ago. As a joke. Now Magnus and Alec must race across Europe to track down the Crimson Hand and its elusive new leader before the cult can cause any more damage. As if it wasn’t bad enough that their romantic getaway has been sidetracked, demons are now dogging their every step, and it is becoming harder to tell friend from foe. As their quest for answers becomes increasingly dire, Magnus and Alec will have to trust each other more than ever—even if it means revealing the secrets they’ve both been keeping.

It was great to see Magnus and Alec get their own book. The mix of darkness (the cult) and light (the glib wit) didn‘t always work for me and the villain was hella obvious, but in all I thought it was a good summer read - somewhere between a so so and a pick.

loved this so much. Alec and Magnus have always been my favourite couple from the Shadowhunters books. It was brilliant to have a book of just them. This is set during the mortal instruments series so did confuse me for a moment as I've read the later ones but it does explain a few incidents more deeply. The story itself was full of drama and romance. The detail as always was well written and the ending was perfect. I look forward to the next one

Cassandra Clare is SUCH a storyteller. After indulging in the series finale of the Shadowhunters television series, I was definitely in the mood for more Alec and Magnus, and this fabulous adventure novel, which Clare co-wrote with Wesley Chu, satisfied that craving. The couple is so sweet, and I loved the way the book dovetailed with the rest of Clare's work. (continued in comments)

Have you read this novel? How are you dealing with the end of Shadowhunters? (And, somewhat related, what did you think of the tv series?)

I really enjoyed reading more about Magnus and Alec. There was enough plot to keep things interesting but not too much to distract from the character stuff. Just loved it! #shadowhunterchronicles

This might be the raciest #ya book I've ever read. Not complaining! I thoroughly enjoyed it even though it reads like fanfic, and it certainly helped satisfy my #Malec withdrawal. This is basically what I wanted the #Shadowhunters tv series to be: Alec & Magnus going on adventures, getting into trouble, saving each other, and most importantly being in love. Great read for #PrideMonth too. #weneeddiversebooks #teachersoflitsy #summervacation

I started reading two new books today and both of them have blue covers. Coincidence? Possibly, or then my brain was trying to tell me something😂 I was pleasantly surprised to find the tagged book from the local bookstore because now I don‘t have to buy it from Sweden next week! #translatedbooks #shadowhunterchronicles

“He stood in the middle of his Paris apartment with the man he loved, and felt very alone.” That moment when reading when you get to a line that resonates and takes you away into your own thoughts for a while. I‘ve had a divorce thrown at me after 25 years of marriage and I‘ve spent much of it feeling like that quote - without the benefit of a Paris apartment. Perhaps I will be better off after all...

Awww. I've always liked Alec and Magnus better than Jace and Clary, and this book just reaffirmed they are one of the best couples in the Shadowhunter universe. This is their European "vacation," but it doesn't go according to plan.

April was a month of Malec. Finished listening to City of Glass just in time to listen to Red Scrolls of Magic. Loved it so much then read it in print. Then it made me want to reread The Land I Lost. April is time to get back in the garden; which means Audiobooks. Working my way through Chronicles of St Mary's and keeping up with Parasol Protectorate Readalong. 📚

Had a busy Friday but Yay! the first book I finished during the #readathon #24B4Monday @TheReadingMermaid
Around 2.5 hours (I keep forgetting to turn on or off the timer 😣)
It's so nice to go back to this #Shadowhunters world & this time focusing around my two very favorite characters Alec & his warlock BF Magnus Bane! #Malec What's not to love?
5⭐️ for a Shadowhunters Read! & Love this #WaterstonesEdition that matches with my #TDA series!

Mandahrin Adding to my TBR. Have you read the Mortal Instrument or Infernal Devices series? If not let me know if you wanna borrow and I‘ll bring one (or all lol) next time we see each other 3mo
ninergrl6 @Mandahrin I haven't read any of the other books. I just watch the show, and honestly, only for Malec. That's why I was excited about this book -- all Malec, no Clary = win win. 3mo

I love Cassie Clare. I am always all in on a new shadow hunters book. And Magnus is a personal favorite. Still, this book felt a little simple? Because it took place with characters we know and love but between preexisting books, there were no real stakes.

I may be addicted to the Shadowhunter universe. I waited (not so) patiently for this to be released, and then I waited another week for my hold to show up on Libby. And every moment of waiting was worth it. I devoured this in 12 hours, staying up way too late to finish it. It's easy to pinpoint where in time this is set, if you're already familiar with the timeline of the books. Love Magnus and Alec!

Crinoline_Laphroaig Unpacking is so much better with magic: "Magnus wandered back into their suite and pointed at his suitcases. They each split open and began to unload themselves. Blazers and coats flew into the waiting closet, undergarments folded themselves into the drawers, shoes walked into a neat row by the door, and valuables locked themselves into the safe." 3mo
