What Really Happened in Peru (The Bane Chronicles #1) Spoilers!!!

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 ten 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 e-only short story illuminates the life of the enigmatic Magnus Bane, whose alluring personality populates the pages of the #1 New York Times bestselling 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 was so excited to read these Bane Chronicles, but I must say I was slightly disappointed.  Maybe it was the lack of slaying demons or the lack Jace, Clary, Alec, Will, Tessa, or Jem, but I was not impressed.  It was decent.  It sort of showed why Magnus is banned from Peru. It had some humor.  It just was not as intense or as entertaining as The Mortal Instruments or The Infernal Devices.  Being mostly a short story, I could understand less action and suspense and I would not say it was boring, but I am not sure it was deserving of Magnus's flair.  It was very amusing at times.
     (Spoiler) I found it very hard to watch Magnus fall in love with people that were not Alec and not even know who Alec was.  I do not regret reading it, but I am not sure if I will read the others.  I did enjoy the introduction of new characters that I hope to maybe see in future Mortal Instrument books and the back story to one character that was in a past book (City of Glass). 
     It mainly contains some anecdotes about a younger Magnus and some of his other Warlock friends in Peru.  I feel so awful when I write this.  I recommend reading it but not expecting an action-packed story. It was good, but not great.
Cover rate- 5/5!!!
Plot rate- 3.5/5
