The Red Scrolls of Magic

by Cassandra Clare, Wesley Chu

Part of the The Eldest Curses Series

'new gen' - Great Fiction for Young Adults

The Red Scrolls of Magic Synopsis

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.

The Red Scrolls of Magic Press Reviews

Praise for the Mortal Instruments series:

Fans of... Buffy the Vampire Slayer will instantly fall for this series Publishers Weekly

The perfect young adult novel. The tale of a shadowy underworld of elegant half-angel demons hunters in New York is thrilling. It's romantic. The pages fly by. The characters leap off the page and into your heart. I aspire to write like this. And I want to fight like a Shadow Hunter -- CJ Daugherty The Big Issue

Mesmerising, lyrical tale of bright and dark sides of love and desire -- Fiona Noble Bookseller Children's Guide

A thrilling urban fantasy of vampires, warlocks and shapeshifters that fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer will love to get their teeth into [...] We haven't read such a brilliant mixture of razor-sharp wit and humour and spine tingling fear but above all a terrific page-turning read that will have you saying just one more page, then one more chapter and suddenly you've finished it.  LoveReading4Kids

The book was easy to get into and thrilling the whole time. First News
