Happy Release Day: The Bane Chronicles: What Really Happened in Peru

The first installment of the highly-anticipated The Bane Chronicles was released today on various eBook platforms, including iBooks, Kindle and Nook.

Here’s the synopsis of What Really Happened in Peru, which was penned by Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan:

BANE-CHRONICLES_612x612Fans of The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices know that Magnus Bane is banned from Peru . . . and now they can find out why.

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.

We will be discussing all things The Bane Chronicles: What Really Happened in Peru and more on Friday in our next Shadowhunter Hangout.

The cover of What Really Happened in Peru is just one-tenth of the final cover. Each cover of the ensuing installments will fit together as puzzle pieces to compete the full cover of The Bane Chronicles.

  4. I’m off to work 😦 but so downloading this as soon as I get home tonight!!!! Can’t wait to find out…..

  5. Does it contain any spoilers for infernal devices? Because I only just started in clockwork angel but I’m really eager to read the first bane chronicles and I can’t read it if there are any spoilers.

    • No. There are some names from The Infernal Devices but it won’t spoil anything. The Bane Chronicles #4 (The Midnight Heir) will have spoilers but you’ve got time until July 23.

  6. Just read it this morning before my school started! 🙂
