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 10 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 short story illuminates the life of the enigmatic Magnus Bane, whose alluring personality populates the pages of the number-one New York Times best-selling series The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices. This story in The Bane Chronicles, What Really Happened in Peru, is written by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan.

I am new to this series, having read only The City of Bones so far. I am listening to these short stories and enjoying them a lot. I like Magnus and enjoy learning more about him.
Yes. I love Magnus Bane he is my favorite character.
Loved his drunken adventure. Him being so drunk and flying around on a magic carpet.
Learning about his childhood. So sad about what his mother did.
I loved this book. Jesse Williams did a wonderful job narrating. The flow and the tone is just how I imagined Magnus Bane would be. Very entertaining, I would love to see more stories of Magnus Bane, especially if Jesse Williams would be the narrator.
I cannot think of anyone
This was written in an elementary school style of writing with adult content. It also depicted Magnus Bane as a fool. I did not see the Magnus Bane of Cassandra Clare's book in this character.
Having read the Mortal Instruments and Magus being a favorite character, I was expecting something more, a higher quality then we got in this mini book. First note it is a mini book right at an hour. The interaction between the characters seemed forced, the stories told seem half formed thoughts nothing perused in depth. Magus temperament was fairly dead on. the voice of the narrator did not really fit what I imagine Magus would sound like, but that the narration was still good.
Its okay and worth the 2 ish dollars, certainly not worth a credit. Over all sum up I expected better from Cassandra Clare especially for this particular character.
No, the writing style in this story was very different from Cassandra Clare's other works. It is very obvious that it was co-authored.
No, the writing style was not as effective as Cassandra Clare's other books, it felt more like a summary of a larger story than an actual story. The whole thing felt rushed and lacking important details.
He read way too fast, I tried to slow the reading speed down but it didn't work on my phone, there was a strange echo. The narrator read like he was 16 and taking on the phone to his buddies- he sped thru the entire story.
If all the short stories were combined- perhaps.
I'm sad that this wasn't as good as I'd hoped.
I enjoy reading but don't always have time so I listen using audible. I love the YA catagory tho I'm not a YA. Fav book, The Shack (no YA).
Performance: Perfect. I love this character from the book series a great deal. The readers never make him flaming gay which is a relief. Just because a guy is gay does not mean he must talk like a woman. Ya know. This is a many and powerful bisexual man character.
Story: It's ok. It's about Magnus so it's cool but it never gives you the answer to what you think your going to learn here. Its a few good stories of the trouble he get into while in Peru. But not the reason he was banned from the place.
Well, we still don't know what really happen in Peru. Just that the circle did banished him, but not for what is in this audiobook.
Magnus is my favourite character in this story. I like the character since the very 1st book of the series. He is mysterious and good in his own way.
When his last love boyfriend told him to leave as he cannot spend his life with Magnus.
I guess so, it is so short and over packed with stories, but only the surface stories.
