The Rise of Hotel Dumort: Review


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...


The Rise of Hotel Dumort is set in New York (Finally) and it's about a new landmark in the 1920s named Hotel Dumort. A landmark that fans of The Mortal Instruments are familiar with. But even the brightness of the new landmark can't prevent dark magic at play. This is one of the more interesting adventures so far in TBC. It's pretty epic with the second last part of the story. Although it's way too short because I can see that a lot more struggling can be portrayed in this story. 

This story does not involve any Shadowhunters that we are familiar with. It's a good thing though. I mean, since that Magnus is a warlock constantly associating with Shadowhunters, his stories are often intertwined with them. This time there are not much about them and none we are familiar with and we can focus more on Magnus's journey. I know a lot more about him then I did in the previous short novellas. He might be a warlock. He might have demon blood, but he is not evil.

Rating: 7/10
