One of my favorite installments

Would you consider the audio edition of Saving Raphael Santiago to be better than the print version?

I would consider this to be better than the print. I love Michael Trevino and was super excited to see he was narrating this book!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Magnus is hands down my favorite character in the entire series of The Mortal Instruments, The Bane Chronicles and The Infernal Devices. I love his attitude and personality. He is so full of love, even if he doesn't always show it.

Which scene was your favorite?

I really like when Raphael was living with Magnus. I loved how Raphael always poked and prodded at Magnus.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen to it in one sitting. It isn't very long, so it isn't very hard

Great Background on Raphael.

It was neat to get a look-see into Raphael's past. Knowing more helps him make better sense in the Mortal Instruments series.

Another good one

Yep. I was right this whole series is hit or miss. To be fair I still have 2 more to go. I suspect one will not be good and the other will. We shall see.

This one in the series. Very good. You get a good story, a good interaction of Magus and others, good snark back and forth, more history of Magus, as well as additional history on another character. I wish the story continued into a full book for this one. It was just that entertaining.

The narrator was good, both in the narration and as a voice for Magus. I really don't have anything negative to say about this one besides that it is slightly to short in my opinion.
