The Dresden File books keep getting better and better. I find myself laughing out loud frequently at Harry. This has become my favorite series and I have listened to them several times. Please don't ever kill off this series Jim. I LOVE them!!!!
Another outstanding addition to the fantastic Dresden series. These books really capture and hold my attention. Long commutes just fly by. I hope Butcher never stops writing them.

The 11th book in The Dresden Files shows that the series continues to have fantastic storylines, one book after another have had great plots. The story in this one in particular had me on the edge of my seat, however, as Harry Dresden prepares for an epic, huge fight against a terrifying skin walker.
Plenty of twists and turns in this book, and I was pretty surprised by some things that happen. Molly, Harry's apprentice, let me down with a bad decision, though in some ways I could understand her rationale and I feel frustrated with the rigidity of the laws of the White Council.
Some insight at the end of the book into Anastasia's character had me astounded too, and a plot twist at the book's end regarding Thomas has me itching to read book 12 right away.
This series has not disappointed me yet. While I get nervous whenever a book series stretches on TOO long for fear of the characters ultimately changing too much or for fear of too many cliched soap opera-style plot manipulations, so far the Dresden Files have avoided those pitfalls.
Fan of mystery & romance -- particularly of historical persuasion!"
What a dynamic combination Jim Butcher and James Marsters are! Jim's stories are fabulous and Marsters does a terrific job of bringing them to life!
Over the road Truck Driver. I enjoy audiobooks as they help the miles roll by.....Especially unabridged History and good Fiction.
No! I love both versions. I can't read it while driving, so...
The realistic (in a fantasy, of course) setting and a logical view of the supernatural. Jim Butcher has a way of making this genre totally accessible, and a riot at the same time.
He really gets Harry Dresden across. When I read the book, James Marsters' voice IS Harry's voice in my head! His depiction of Harry and the people who share his world is completely believable (and hilarious- check out his accent for Major General Toot-Toot Minimus!! And Bob? You will laugh sooo hard....)
Just relax and let Harry take you someplace you couldn't go on your own...
This is probably the best book in the series. That is said after looking back having read 12 and 13.
Can't say. Spoilers!
I tried Audible for Wheel of Time. James Marster's narration of the Dresden Files convinced me to keep the subscription. I very quickly stopped thinking of him as Spike on "Buffy."
Can't say. Spoilers!
Even though this is the 11th Dresden book, it is the second one I happened to come across. I didn't know who these characters were, or what had happened. However the story was so well-written I could still enjoy it. I backtracked through the entire series, all in audiobook form.

This is one of my top series of books, my defaults when I don't want to listen to anything else. I have listen to each book more than once.
Marster's is THE voice of Harry Dresden. I won't listen to another reader. There did exist a book read by another performer, and I preferred to read the paper version of that book and not listen to another reader.
Very picky when it comes to narrators.
I love Dresden's mouthy style. No matter what situation he's in, he always has a smart remark.
Bob. All knowing spirit or not, he's a supernatural lech and the comic relief.
Everything. His Dresden is spot on and he brings all of the characters to life and makes you want the stories to just go on and on. Dresden, Molly, Michael even Mouse are very much alive when he reads them and I hate to leave them at the end of the book.
Can Harry and Warden Morgan bring down the Black Council?
There's a reason why the Dresden books are all best sellers, but James Marsters brings them to life in an unforgettable way.
The series is really taking off with big changes for the characters and intensifying plot lines that leave me wanting more and more. I really like how every book surprises me with plot twists and character bends that deepen my interest in Harry Dresden and the people that surround him.
We get to learn more about Morgan and what motivates him to do the things he does in "Turn Coat."
