Lisa Reviews: Sarah Rees Brennan and Cassandra Clare's - "What Really Happened in Peru"
I received this audio book for review from Simon and Schuster; thank you! I would recommend this book on audio as it’s really awesome to listen too! I loved the reader’s accent. It made the story sound like it was read by Magnus himself!
What Really Happened in Peru follows Magnus’s adventures during his stay in Peru. Each adventure is short, the actual book I think is only 100 or so pages long, and the audio version plays for about an hour and half. It’s really quick, great for a car ride, or just to listen to on the side while doing something else.
Throughout What Really Happened in Peru, the reader learned a lot about Magnus and his days before meeting the characters we all know and love in the Mortal instruments series. We also get to see a glimpse of his friends, Ragnor Fell and Catrina Loss.
Besides those three, the reader also gets a taste of what it meant for Magnus to be in love with a mortal, and as well as little bit of Magnus’s demon father (Dare I say, that was my favourite part?!).
What Really Happened in Peru filled in the reader with some background information on a beloved character, but the adventures themselves were as exciting I hoped them to be. Overall, I still really enjoyed learning more about Magnus, before the Mortal Instruments series started, even though I wished the adventures weren’t so dull.
