Well now, there is no point in immortality, unless you have someone to share it with, that's it. Clare, Johnson, and Brennan have stated that development on the series began when they were telling stories about Clare's character of Magnus Bane to each other. E' simpatico, divertente, sa essere profondo e molto saggio. Aug 02, Kai rated it did not like it Shelves: Is there just one giant book that has all the stories? Though the plot itself was ok, the transitions between Clare and Brennan were incredibly obvious to anyone familiar with both writing styles, and though I typically enjoy Brennan's light use of humor to some extent, they seemed almost out of place here, and the dialogue in general was fairly choppy. Other Editions 4.
Probably the worst thing Cassandra Clare has ever written. The plot is weak 2. The jokes are forced and therefore not funny 3. The whole meaning of this short story is a mystery to me 4. Magnus Bane is horribly boring and repetitive and annoying as hell Find more of my books on Instagram. View all 4 comments. Jan 27, Stephanie Bookfever rated it it was amazing Shelves: I have just finished Clockwork Princess before I started this.
Let's say I was in need of a Magnus fix after that. How I loved this ebook about how Magnus got banned from Peru. Everything from Magnus himself to his friends to the setting to everything they do was just so much fun! And with fun I mean monkeys, llamas, freaking flying carpets and what not! I simply adored Ragnor Fell or as I will call him from now on my little cabbage. With his green skin and slightly suspiciousness towards Magnus he's one hell of a travel companion which brings us to Catarina Loss.
I really liked her. She's awesome with her blue skin and white hair.
I bet she's really pretty! But of course it wasn't all fun and games. Sometimes there were sad parts, however they weren't frequent or anything. And yet, I feel so bad for Magnus. But anyway, this was a great short story all about Magnus Bane's greatness and I can't wait to read more! Apr 19, Stacia the club rated it liked it Recommends it for: Only die-hard Magnus fans.
This is the actor playing Magnus in the upcoming Mortal Instruments movie. Isn't he lovely? Two words about What Really Happened in Peru: Fun Forgettable This is a short story which takes place pre-Mortal Instruments. As many short stories go, it's not much more than just a collection of brief extras, showing Magnus in a few adventures while out on his own. You will not have needed to have read either the Mortal Instruments or the Infernal Devices series in order to read this, but I don't see why t This is the actor playing Magnus in the upcoming Mortal Instruments movie.
You will not have needed to have read either the Mortal Instruments or the Infernal Devices series in order to read this, but I don't see why the story would be all that interesting to anyone who doesn't already have a love for Magnus.
As well, there are brief mentions of characters from other series not having to do with the story, however , that might fly right over your head if you don't know who they are from reading the companion books. If you can't get enough of Magnus, you'll enjoy this collection of short stories.
Otherwise, don't feel pressured to have to read this. It's not a "have-to" in order to keep up with the world. Not that I was complaining about having to spend time with Magnus or anything Feb 22, xrysa rated it it was amazing. Magnus is a magnificent warlock and one of my favorite characters in the "shadowhunter-world". I never thought that Ragnor could be funny and I have to admit that his sarcasm left me smiling. I love Magnus because he is the madness personified. He wears weird mexican hats and he's being chased by a view spoiler [monkey!
Magnus is falling in love and he is going crazy. Learning to play the charango is something that he likes but the whole town doesnt approve. All I have to say is that Magnus is amazing and I cant wait to read more about him! View all 33 comments. Apr 04, Christina rated it liked it Shelves: Even in the midst of heartbreak, you could still find yourself laughing. This short story is simply a compilation of different trips that Magnus took to Peru over the span of many years, with fellow warlock friends.
The adventures they'd had The heartache he experienced while there. So why did Magnus become banned from Peru? That remains a mystery to us all Oct 10, Melanie rated it it was ok Shelves: They could only hope what they made would endure. In , with Ragnor Fell, and taverns, and monkeys, and pirates!
Then we get to see Magnus in with Ragnor and Catarina, where Magnus is accepting a mysterious job. Then we jump to when Magnus meets Imasu and we get to see him drinking, riding magic carpets, mentioning people from TID, and falling in love.
Lastly, we see the year , where Magnus meets a person named Kitty who is also a con-artist, a thief, and someone who is looking for love and adventure. View 2 comments.
Mar 31, Radmila rated it really liked it Shelves: Magnus Bane is one of my most favorite characters from the Mortal Instruments, he is flamboyant, brilliant, dashing and sarcastic. During the entire time reading the Mortal Instruments, we were teased with the knowledge that Magnus has been banned from Pe 3. During the entire time reading the Mortal Instruments, we were teased with the knowledge that Magnus has been banned from Peru so I was quite excited to jump into this little novella.
Magnus takes us through his Peruvian shenanigans beginning with , then throughout the years of , and There is no shortage of entertainment, with his partners in crime, Ragnor Fell and Catarina Loss. Not to mention his stint with the monkeys, the ship and lets not forget the charango. But in the end I was a lil bummed, we got a whole lotta history but never the real reason Regardless it was a fun listen, the Narrator depicts Magnus and his cohorts so well, it just makes you settle right in for the ride.

Like, everything she's published and planned since City of Glass was released?
About two years ago before City of Fallen Angels and then Lost Souls which view spoiler [brought an unpleasant maybe-end to Magnus and Alec's cute little romance hide spoiler ] , I would have been all over these.
Now that things have gone downhill and Magnus got decidedly less cool after the last Mo Does anyone else get the feeling that Cassandra Clare is writing elaborate, published fan-fictions of her own novels? Now that things have gone downhill and Magnus got decidedly less cool after the last Mortal Instrument book I probably won't be downloading any of the Bane Chronicles any time soon. Unless City of Book 6 is awesome. Actually, I don't even know.
The first three MI books and the Infernal Devices with the possible exception of Clockwork Princess, which I haven't read were great the last time I read them, about two years ago, but if I read them now, I'm afraid I'd find that I'm outgrowing all of them.
I'm really torn over my feelings on Cassandra Clare as an author. Half of the Internet sings of her glory and brilliance, blind to any of her faults and sorry, she has them , with Clare-fangirls jumping on any of her critics with the ferocity of a rabid wolverine, and just as blind to reason. On the other hand, we have numerous people drawing comparisons between Clare's works and Harry Potter, Star Wars, Buffy, etc. Not just similarities, but the direct copying of dialogue and plot devices, as well as people claiming that in real life, she's kind of a, um, not very nice person.
So I don't know exactly where my opinion of her is, which is why I'd really appreciate is if, as an author, she moved out of the comfort zone of her little Shadowhunter sphere and started a new series. That way we can see Clare's actual abilities as a writer, not just how long someone can make money by milking the life out of an old idea that may or may not have been truly hers in the first place.
And fangirls, sit down. I have an entitlement to my opinion, just like you have yours. I'm not necessarily wrong just because I'm voicing something different from what you think. If you want to debate me, that's great and feel free to do so. But come on, guys, just like in Kindergarten: Or at least steer clear of stuff like 'uRso Stupid!

The writing was very inconsistent, which makes it very evident that the story was written by more than one author. The inconsistent writing took away the endearing experience that I usually have while reading books in the Shadowhunter's Chronicles and Buy this book HERE on Amazon 2 of 5 stars Please read my rating system further below.
The inconsistent writing took away the endearing experience that I usually have while reading books in the Shadowhunter's Chronicles and I was really disappointed by that. My favorite part about this short story was being able to find out what Magnus was doing before we met him in any of the Shadowhunter books, it was pretty great.
My rating system: I do use half stars. Not because a book might not be worthy, but because a book is never perfect. There weren't too many flaws, and I had no trouble getting through it. A 4 star rating is the highest rating I've ever given a book. View 1 comment. Mar 24, Lex rated it liked it Shelves: The Bane Chronicles Hello there. P I'd love to read you especially with Godfrey Gao in my mind while reading the stories, even this short ones. Out now!!! I love the cover!
I think it's Godfrey Gao! Love him even. So WHY?!
WHY does it have to have a title like that if you'll just end it like that?! Here I am wishing I'll know some of his secrets. But noooooo I'm a bit dis HOLY. I'm a bit disappointed at HOW it ends. BUT I must say I love the second part of the book. That part where he was drunk. So drunk! LOVE that part! I really enjoyed that part. Was laughing at the office while reading it. My seatmate was like "You're so happy there. What's up? With pinpoint accuracy. Mar 30, celine celinereads rated it it was ok.
He's funny and sassy, but What Really Happened In Peru was slightly disappointing and the ending was a little frustrating: View all 3 comments. Dec 10, Hud-c marked it as to-read Shelves: I'm crying. Because aside from Simon Lewis, there's someone who makes my boiling point reach its limit - a warlock name Magnus Bane. It has nothing to do with anger but has got to do with what we called "primitive animal desire" 2 months of waiting? Nah, not bad. Oct 29, Kayla Marie rated it it was amazing.
This story was hilarious.
But at the end it never explained why Magnus was banned lol. Made me want to scream. Unless all his antics are the reasons why lol. Apr 20, Ferdy rated it did not like it. Spoilers Pointless. I still don't know why the fucky fuck Magnus was banned from Peru?! And that was meant to be the whole point of this fucking bastard novella!! I have to say, Magnus wasn't nearly as enigmatic and charming in his own novella. But now that I've been in his head longer Spoilers Pointless. But now that I've been in his head longer, it's quite clear that Magnus is just a whiny-crybaby-bitch.
All he did was moan, and I just couldn't feel sorry for him — he was immortal, he had super cool powers, he had a million lovers, he fell in love with everyone and anyone, he had good friends, he got to do whatever the hell he wanted, he travelled all over the world and did all sorts of exciting things.
YET he still acted like he had shit life… Ugh. There was no real story in What Really Happened in Peru , it was just a bunch of scenes mish-mashed together… But because they were all set in Peru, I'm guessing I was meant to think that there was an actual story with a beginning, middle and end.
That was not the case. A breakdown: So yea… It was all just random unconnected stuff that Magnus did in Peru at different periods of time — and none of those things were the reason he was banned from Peru. Why write a synopsis that says: I'm really starting to hate Magnus - he's so whiny and I'm put off by 1. How many times he's fallen in love and 2. How easily he falls in love. It just makes his 'love' for Alex seem like nothing special and I no longer buy that Magnus even loves Alex.
It's clear that when Alex dies that Magnus will have no trouble moving on and finding someone new to love. Will I read the next one? Yes, but I shall borrow an e-copy from the library. I refuse to waste my money on Magnus's boring-whiny-selfpitying 'adventures'. View all 48 comments. Dec 10, Annie Brewer rated it it was amazing Shelves: Oh Magnus, the Magnificent Warlock Have I?!
You are superb! I love love love the hell out of you! It's no surprise that I'd love this short story. Cassandra Clare can do no wrong. I love Cassie!
I love Magnus! Thank you for giving us this piece of awesomeness! I can't wait for the next short story, next month and the next journey we get to ride on with Magnus. I love him! I lov Oh Magnus, the Magnificent Warlock Thank you! Oh yay!!! Love the title. Dying for this book now! Love my witty Warlock! This what a bit anticlimactic I really hope the other novellas are better! Mar 31, Jessie rated it did not like it Shelves: I was expecting something fun, but instead I got a few chapters of what Magnus did in Peru.
The whole thing bored me out, and nothing was answered. I hope the other novellas are better than this. You could've done a lot better, Clare. Not something that will stay, not something that will last.
Not someone permanent. Dec 13, Sophia rated it it was ok Shelves: I have to say, I was incredibly disappointed with this one. I love Cassandra Clare's books, and Sarah Rees Brennan's book Unspoken was surprisingly great, but together, they don't quite mix. It was off somehow. I don't know how to explain it. The writing was too dumbed down at times then with these random SAT words thrown in the mix, and it just didn't sound right.
Then there was the story itself, which was subpar and all over the place. Not to mention that dumb line at the end of every chapter I have to say, I was incredibly disappointed with this one. Not to mention that dumb line at the end of every chapter that just I think the only worthwhile part was Imasu and his infinite adorableness.
Also, the whole thing with the musical instrument I can't remember its name was just I was expecting the usual playful and flamboyant Magnus mixed in with his wisdom and sort of bitterness, but instead I got his party side on steroids, and I didn't like it.
Let's see if the next installments are any better.
Also, Alexandra's review sums up my feelings perfectly and a bit more eloquently than mine. Lattura velocissima. E' simpatico, divertente, sa essere profondo e molto saggio.
Ogni sua avventura mi mette allegria! Tu ci giri intorno, ci dai piccoli indizi sul passato di Magnus, ma poi Come al solito sei una sadica! Apr 20, Gerasimos rated it liked it. Such an enjoyable, light and hilarious read!
Magnus Bane is one of my favorite characters in Cassandra Clare's books so I was very excited to read this! It turned out to be as fantastic as I was expecting it to be. It was nothing too special, just a hilarious short novella with the adventures that Magnus spent on Peru. But you know why it was so enjoyable? Why I loved it so much? Why a story that normally should be nothing too exciting, was so good? Because of Cassandra Clare's amazing ability t Such an enjoyable, light and hilarious read!
Because of Cassandra Clare's amazing ability to create alive characters. I love Magnus so much that I could read pages and pages of him doing nothing. This short novella is divided to four parts each one with a different adventure in Peru in a different time period. The first two stories where a little bit slow. They were funny but not as good as the next ones. What I also love is the fact that even in such a short story that were mostly fun, Cassandra Clare managed to put a few sweet heartwarming moments.
Magnus may be a little bit too cartoonish some times, all the stories were a tad too extreme, but this is why I loved them so much! If you love Cassandra Clare and Magnus Bane who doesn't after all definitely check this out. I cannot wait for the next stories in the Bane Chronicles that I am sure will be even better than this entertaining but yet introductory novella! Apr 16, Alexandra rated it it was ok Shelves: I had hopes for this novella, considering that it followed Magnus Bane, and expected the same witty humor we have grown accustomed to with him as well as some interesting insights into his life.
Neither lived up to my expectations, unfortunately. Though the plot itself was ok, the transitions between Clare and Brennan were incredibly obvious to anyone familiar with both writing styles, and though I typically enjoy Brennan's light use of humor to some extent, they seemed almost out Disappointing.
Though the plot itself was ok, the transitions between Clare and Brennan were incredibly obvious to anyone familiar with both writing styles, and though I typically enjoy Brennan's light use of humor to some extent, they seemed almost out of place here, and the dialogue in general was fairly choppy.
Several notable lines were interspersed throughout, mainly regarding Magnus and therefore probably written by Clare , giving the story several short, serious parts. There are several references that can be tied into both The Infernal Devices series and The Mortal Instruments series, which were enjoyable, but brief.
The story takes place between three different time periods, making it a bit rushed for the total 40 or so pages of the novella. Worth reading for fans of the Shadowhunter books, and perhaps those who loved Unspoken or Brennan's other stories, but certainly not what I had hoped for. Dec 27, l marked it as to-read. Magnus Bane is my hero. Well, that and WWOD what would oprah do? Jan 30, Chloe marked it as to-read.
Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood!!! I am dying from joy right now. I'm finding it hard to breathe. Seriously, Cassandra Clare first introduced me to the world of you know..
But seriously, I am not the kind of people who shun gays. I mean, I'm not so sure about the lesbian part, but I'm okay with gay guys. Alec Lightwood is sooo gorgeous. Blue eyes, black hair and this kind of personality who does not get sarcasm!!
It is just so cute!! Oh, and h OH. Oh, and here's some quotes proving how cute Alec can be: And another one!! Oh-you're being sarcastic. That's a good sign, probably," Alec said. That is so freaking unbelievably cute!!!!!!!! LOVE it!!! And Magnus Bane God I love this couple. Funny, smart, high warlock, sexy, cute, mysterious, snappy dresser, kind, well, to Alec anyway, and have such a wild personality. God, it made my heart break when I saw the break-up scene.
I was like, yelling, and swearing, in the middle of the freaking night. Dude, seriously, it was just so sad. If you feel nothing when you read this scene, then you have no heart. Magnus was like, Go Alec, I want you out of here. It was not your decision to make. And Alec was like, No, I'm sorry. Just give me one more chance. Don't go. It was just so freaking sad Oh god..
But it was kinda sad that Magnus is such a.. And Magnus is like, years old and Alec is Well, I can't wait to see er, read the Bane Chronicles. I don't think I can purchase a e-book so I'm gonna buy it in paperback. But didn't it say that it's a limited edition or something?? I will DIE if I don't read it.
