#REVIEW: Bane Chronicles Book One @CassieClare

The Rise of Hotel Dumort by Cassandra Clare

In 1920s Manhattan, Magnus Bane hobnobs with the elite at a glamorous Jazz Age hotspot.

The immortal Magnus Bane is making the most of his time in the Roaring Twenties: He's settled into New York society and is thriving among the fashionable jazz set. And there is nowhere better to see and be seen than the glamorous Hotel Dumort, a glittering new addition to the Manhattan landscape. But a different type of glamour may be at play...

Again a super fun read. I however didn't realize how much fun a speakeasy was back in the day. According to Magnus a speakeasy is one of mankind's greatest achievements....intimate, celebratory, illegal without being immoral , a fission of danger without any real peril. Well defined I think. But once the night has ended occasionally the party moves to someones house. In which case giving the host the tires off of the police car that is parked outside as a thank you gift is always a wise decision. SCORE!

I give this book 5 chocolate dipped strawberries and a flapper dress. I think I could so pull one of those off maybe minus all the fringe stuff.
