What Really Happened in Peru - Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan (Mini Review)

Title: What Really Happened in Peru (The Bane Chronicles, #1)
Author: Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan
Release Date: April 16th, 2013
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry
Group: Young Adult Literature
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.

I was so excited when Cassandra Clare announced The Bane Chronicles! Magnus Bane is one of my favorite characters in both the Mortal Instruments but also in the Infernal Devices series, so I was excited to read more adventures about him and to learn some about his past. What Really Happened in Peru is a very fun and quick read. We learn four little adventures stories over a period of time that happened to Magnus all while in Peru. We also meet two friends of Magnus', Catarina and Ragnor. I especially enjoyed Ragnor, he was very amusing to read from and the banter between him and Magnus was great!

Cassandra Clare's writing is as good as ever. I can't wait to read more from the Bane Chronicles and I am especially excited for a certain one coming up that is about James Herondale and I believe there is even going to be one about Edmund Herondale as well. I can't wait to see what adventure Magnus will be going on next! If you are a fan of the Mortal Instrument series and the Infernal Devices series, then I highly suggest you pick this up for a quick light read! It is totally worth the money!
