Again Harry Dresden is beaten up, bitten, shot at and generally treated like a punching bag by the baddies, as well as by the good guys. Actually so much so that he doesn't get to wield much magic. The story is an exhausting series of misunderstandings, revelations and gory mayhem.
The werewolf theme is handled deftly, with some interesting new takes on the furry critters.
Marsters doesn't do different character voices, which is OK. There is no trouble distinguishing who does the talking. (Mostly Dresden anyway). The world weary narration delivery is an acquired taste - but I love it.
Smiled at the nod to "Young Frankenstein".
I am really getting into this series. Sci-fi is not my usual genre, but these have grabbed me. Harry is a wizard, who is way to human and conflicted. That is what makes this series so good. On to book 3.
Into werewolves? Get this book. It's one of the best I've read that include the stories and myths of the creatures. It can be read as a standalone. It's gruesome, but the personalities, humor, and action make up for all the gore.
A cop shooting in the back an unarmed and handcuffed man that is running away. I mean really!?! And the stupid cop with the ridiculously predictable trust issues that keep conveniently popping up like a freaking whack-a-mole. How many times can a guy save your life before you start to trust him!?! And if you can't trust him, quit calling him and asking for help!!!!!!!
I love the characters and the story was fun. Best of all was the narration. I will be l looking for more audio books narrated by James Marsters.
Really good story. Murder mystery and Sci-fi mixed seamlessly. Harry and the Narrator himself have really begun to grow on me. Werewolves rule. Can't wait to see what happens next in the saga.
