What Happened in Peru - Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan

Summary: Goodreads


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.


This is the perfect book for those of us who are obsessed with the Mortal Instruments series.  It is a short one, only 70 pages long and in e-format which is awesome to dive right in for an evening of reading.

What I love about this title is that it brings to light the quirkiness of Magnus Bane's personality.  It is apparent how much fun Cassie and Sarah had in writing this series. This dynamic writing duo will succeed in providing you with ridiculous scenarios even a warlock could write in his memoirs.  The images burned in my mind as I read through Magnus, Ragnor and Catarina's adventures in Peru.

My favorite line

"After breakfast, which was five drinks for Ragnor and seventeen for Magnus..."

(Poor Magnus.  I suppose when you love forever, it is hard to find a BFF without their own centuries old issues.  I'm sure a few drinks make things more tolerable....)

Here's a thought - Have you also read Sarah Rees Brennan's The Demon's Lexicon trilogy?  If you have, you should be familiar with a certain demon hottie named Nick.  Now, imagine what would happen if Nick and Jace had a bromance?  Would you call them besties or beasties?  The creative juices of both authors flowed in this short story and are sure to give you a giggle or two.  If you are looking for a fun, light-hearted read with characters you are already familiar with, have a go at the Bane Chronicles.   I think it will bring a smile to your face.
