The Fall of the Hotel Dumort is set in the 1970's and was definitely more of the, let's say, serious books in The Bane Chronicles. Because it involved Camille and her vampires, Magnus wasn't the way we see him usually but I still liked it because we also got a lot more insight about Magnus and Camille's relationship. We also briefly come across characters we already read about like Raphael and Catarina.
All in all, not the best part in the series but also not the worst. I enjoyed reading it like I always do with The Bane Chronicles and felt like we did need to read about this. Also there were some quotes that I really loved.
