It is up to you to use your powers for good!
I love this series but the narrator is so annoying it makes it almost impossible to listen. He does clever voices but he's a constant lip smacker. I tried to tell myself it was just a fizzy coke by the Mic but it never stopped. Why didn't the producer catch this? Will NOT be listening to the rest of the series.
I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.
I really liked this book. It is one of the best in a series of 14 books. That says it all. I normally hate faeries but the author mnakes them fun and interesting. Lots of plot twists and once you get into the later books you can actually see where elements for the earlier novels fit into the over arching story. If you've read the other books in the series you'll want to read this one too.
I have loved all these books so far, but this one was somewhat confusing for me to follow.
It introduced so many new characters that I had a hard time keeping track of who they were, and they all seemed to have several different names tied to them, as in changing forms, or titles. It's an epic type of book, a huge war looming, with lots of characters taking up sides, along with trying to get a full prospective on what the war is all about. It's very fast paced, and you have to listen intently to get all the details.
As usual James Marsters, makes the book worth listening to. I love his narration (slurps, sighs, and all) and I will go on, to listen to more of this series.
I enjoy these stories, and I love James Marsters' reading voice, but I am frustrated that, now having gotten into the series, I can't get the next books in the series. Since there is a story line from book to book, I refuse to download book 8 until I've read the books I can't listen to here.
I enjoy these books, however the narrator sometimes sounds like he REALLY needs a glass of water. I can hear all of his sticky mouth noises. It's quite distracting. I am glad that the new book will have some new blood!
A very entertaining fantasy which is well narrated by mr Marsters. However only the first four books are available for non-US downloads, apparently due to DRM-issues. Very frustrating!
The world is just an illusion
For all the talk of Dungeons and Dragons roleplaying near the beginning this really inspired me to write more about Faeries.
Myst/thrillers, some contemporary and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
Harry is in the middle of it again, this time he has it coming at him from all sides. The White Council is considering turning him over to the Vampire Council for a fire storm massacre, that Harry used, to save he and his cohorts in the last book. Mavv the head Winter Fairy is calling in a favor that Harry owes her, which is complicated, and not at all helping his case with the White Council. Susan, his estranged girlfriend, may become a Vampire at any moment, because of a situation that Harry feels guilty for putting her in. All in all a typical day in Harry's Dresden's wizarding life.
Harry turns to the only ones that will help him and the only ones he can trust, his police officer friend Murphy and a pack of young, but formidable werewolves. My favorite character, Bob, just had a brief cameo, but there is a fun appearance by the crazy fairies who love pizza. The Dresden files are great, paranormal, fun reads that are always amusing adventures. Starting at the beginning of the series is essential in order to understand Harry's complicated, discombobulated life.
After deciding to re-visit this series I read “Storm Front” and then realized that James Marsters was narrating the series and thought I would give it a try for “Fool Moon” and unfortunately by the end I was a little disappointed Marsters reading was a bit breathy and seemed to take a lot out of the action of some of the scenes as I recalled them. After that I decided to read “Grave Peril” as opposed to continuing the audio series but during that time I saw several reviews that said Marsters performance, or the direction he was given was markedly improved in the later books so I decided to give him another try for “Summer Knight” and he did not fail! Mr. Marsters delivered an amazing performance! The drawn out hesitations on lines was gone and the breathy deliveries was markedly dialed back so that there impact was much more prominent when needed, and I am sure that I was grinning like an idiot from sheer joy for the entirety of the final action scene!
