    Story
    "Better, more what I expected"

    Again first note, this is a small sub story at just over an hour. However this was better then the 1st one, more focused, more flushed out and detailed. The story focuses around the Queen of France and Magus with various acquaintances. The Voice is closer to what I imagine Magus to be though still not perfect. If you are interested in a random story of Magus, I would suggest it though so far I do not see any tie to this story and the other main story lines it is simply a random side story, but someone what amusing.

    Story
    "Very funny"
    Would you listen to The Runaway Queen again? Why?

    Yes, because the book has good funny moments.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Magnus is the best character. On this short story we figured out some pieces on his relationships with Camille. I think this series give us elements to understand some chooses made by Magnus on the others books of Cassandra Clare.


    Have you listened to any of George Blagden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this was the first time, and I liked a lot.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.

    Story
    "So So"

    Again, it's about Magnus Bane, hello. He's crazy! But I love the character. This short story left me w/more than a few questions about the Queen so I just focused on Magnus. Worth purchacing because he's just worth hearing about, this crazy fool.
