Now THAT is what I was wanting

It seems as we go through this series it improves. The second was better then the first, and this one trumped both of them. This is the Magus Bane I was expecting. It ties into the history of the shadow hunters, brings in another of the characters from the mortal instruments series, explaining some of the relationships in those books, and explaining some of the details behind the Shadow Hunter. But more importantly you truly see some of what forms who and what Magus is and where some of his reactions come from.

The Voice even seems more like Magus and Narration is taken up a notch from the former two.

In case you are looking at the various books they are all short stories and from what I have seen so far do not need to be listened to in order they are independent stories.

Best one yet

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is a great short listen. Great for the ride to work.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I do love Magnus, but I think in this book Edmund would be my favorite. I can see how other characters from Clare's other book are the way they are and can see them in Edmund Herondale.

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

This is the first Andrew Scott performance I have listened to. I really like him. I feel he has been the best so far in the Bane books.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

What would you do for love?

Any additional comments?

Best book of the series so far.
