"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."

My Thoughts:

I love the Mortal Instruments series, and when I was offered this as an audio book for review, I couldn't turn down the offer!

What Really Happened in Peru follows Magnus's adventures that he encountered during his stay in Peru. Each adventure is short, and the audio itself is only about an hour and a half long.

Throughout this short novella, the reader got to learn a lot about Magnus, his days before meeting the characters in the Mortal Instruments series, and his friends; Ragnor Fell and Catrina Loss. We also got a sneak peek of what it meant for Magnus to be in love with a mortal, and a little bit about Magnus's demon father.

While What Really Happened in Peru did fill the reader in with a lot of information about Magnus and his background, the adventures themselves weren't too exciting. Overall, I still really enjoyed learning more about him, before the Mortal Instruments started, even though I wished the adventures weren't so dry.
