What Really Happened in Peru (Bane Chronicles #1) by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan

What Really Happened in Peru is the first in a series of short stories that follows the exploits of Magnus Bane before he became High Warlock of Brooklyn.  This first installment covers why Magnus Bane is not allowed in Peru.

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 short story is ridiculously funny. Nothing Magnus Bane does is ever simple.  His trips to Peru involve traipsing through the jungle and number of misunderstandings.  No wonder he is no longer welcome there.  I loved the chance to see more from Magnus.  He is one of my favorite characters in Cassandra Clare's series'.  His interactions with Ragnor Fell are so funny.  You can't help but laugh out loud at them.  Their friendship is strange but hilarious.  I can't wait to read the rest of the Bane Chronicles!
