What Really Happened in Peru (The Bane Chronicles #1)

Fans of The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices know that Magnus Bane is banned from Peru—and now they can find out why. One of ten adventures in The Bane Chronicles.

There are good reasons Peru is off-limits to Magnus Bane. Follow Magnus’s Peruvian escapades as he drags his fellow warlocks Ragnor Fell and Catarina Loss into trouble, learns several instruments (which he plays shockingly), dances (which he does shockingly), and disgraces his host nation by doing something unspeakable to the Nazca Lines.

This standalone e-only short story illuminates the life of the enigmatic Magnus Bane, whose alluring personality populates the pages of the #1 New York Times bestselling series, The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices series. This story in The Bane Chronicles, What Really Happened in Peru, is written by Sarah Rees Brennan and Cassandra Clare.

With the finality of the Mortal Instruments coming up, I decided to read some more about my favorite Warlock. 

We hear a little of Magnus being banned from Peru. Is there ever an explanation? Nope! Not even with this little small book. There are several possibilities, but no answer.

We do get to see one of his earlier loves. We see Magnus, try to make it last. It seems that his bad luck started long before he met Alec. 

We also see some of Ragnor and his green complexion and Catarina all blue in action. 

The story about the Nazca Lines was cute. 

I am only giving this novella 4 stars only for the fact that I love the Mortal Instruments. If the book was longer, maybe I would feel differently. I hope the rest of the series is better. 


Until Next Time,
