Lisa Reviews: Cassandra Clare and Maureen Johnson's - "The Runaway Queen"


Clare_Runaway QueenI received this audio book for review, from Simon and Schuster. Thank you! Just like What Really Happened in Peru, The Runaway Queen is a short story in the Bane Chronicles, following Magnus on an adventure.

While I did enjoy listening to What Really Happened in Peru, and learning so much more about Magnus, the actual adventure was a little bit boring. But even with that, I had high hopes for this second instalment in the chronicles, again to learn about Magnus and for a quick and fun adventure.

I am a little sad to say, that the Magnus in The Runaway Queen isn’t the same Magnus we are introduced to in the Mortal Instrument series or in What Really Happened in Peru. He just doesn’t say or do things that I would expect Magnus to do.

However, the concept of him actually helping Marie Antoinette escape during the French Revolution was a nifty idea, and I still found it very fun and enjoyable! I do plan on continuing and finishing the Bane Chronicles, I’m still very excited to see what else is in store!
