The Bane Chronicles is an upcoming set of short stories about the High Warlock of Brooklyn, Magnus Bane, written by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan and Maureen Johnson. Beginning in April with What Really Happened in Peru, one story will be released every month until January 2014, consisting of 10 short stories altogether. There will then be a single print edition in 2014.
The different stories will be about different points in Magnus's life: Peru, Alec, Camille, France, NYC in different decades. According to the authors' tweets, the stories will contain a lot of romance, and fans of the series will get to see appearances from Alec Lightwood, Camille Belcourt, and much more!
Fans 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.
The audiobook is narrated by actor Jesse Williams.
This story was co-written with Sarah Rees Brennan and released on April 16, 2013.
