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 number-one New York Times bestselling series The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices.

Laugh out loud, love it!
Magnus is one of those characters you would be desperate to befriend, yet want him to remain a little mysterious and elusive. He's a fantastic character, one of my all time faves :-)
I'm a little at war with myself here.
After reading this;
I'm so happy that its finally here and that we get to find out what happens. I'm happy with the entire book too! :)
I'm kind of sad because we find out what happens...it kind of takes out the mystery now, huh? ;)
I'm also kind of sad because there are going to be more, awesome magnusifent stories about our cat-eyed, sparkly warlock and they're coming out a month apart and then we also have to go through reading them, and then finishing them.
As you can tell, I'm basically contradicting what I'm saying here...
Anyway, overall, Cassie, you're the best for doing this (bringing out the Mortal Instruments and just creating this whole new perspective on this other world was just...epicness wrapped in amazingness covered in awesomesauce! <<that keeps the ducks away!!)
And Sarah, you, you're the second best (Cassie slid right into first - it was neck-to-neck for a while!!) because you helped out...I don't know what exactly each of you did but you both did an amazing job!!
In the name of the Angel,
P.S. I know this was supposed to be a review, and I don't know if people bother to really read these, but I find that the longest, most encouraging ones are the best. The ones that have the personal kind of connection :)
MAGNUS IS FABULOUS.
There is a reason 'Magnus' and 'fabulous' sound so similar.
I absolutely LOVE learning more about Magnus, and to see the way he's changed over the years - from his first ever visit to Peru, through the Infernal Devices, and finally the Mortal Instruments - is an exhilarating experience. He's grown wiser, and even more reckless throughout his long lifetime. Magnus is my most favourite fictional character of all time, he is so constant, so radiant and SO sassy. He is not afraid to be who he is and that is an admirable quality that I think everyone should be able to identify with. Magnus should be appreciated very much, for being such an admirable and inspiring character, and 'What Happened In Peru' displays this quality, whilst truly grasping the nature of Magnus' identity, morals and values.
I love Magnus, and am indefinitely indebted to Cassie for creating such a wonderful man.
Well done Sarah Rees-Brennan on a fantastic short story!
