I chanced across this character in a collection of short stories...and I must say, the later, more fully developed H Dresden is infinitely preferable to the somewhat stock character presented here. I think I'll be skipping ahead in the this series before I buy another installment.
This second novel of the Dresden Files series really builds on the first and is an amazing, fast paced thrill ride with magic, the supernatural, and one wise cracking magi who happens to advertise in the yellow pages under Wizards. This is a great series for anyone who loves supernatural fun!
Another exciting Dresden Files Novel. Great unpredictable turns. Marsters on the other hand sounded like he was smacking his lips the whole time. I don't think he fits the character well since the character is supposed to be half Marsters age.
The book was an enjoyable and satisfying with unique combination of the noir detective and fantasy in the real world. Great job, Mr. Butcher. The narration was excellent. Great job, Mr. Marsters.
Love this series, never a dull moment. James Maraters is excellent and no other narrator can take this persona.
James Marsters IS the voice of Harry Dresden! He reads with personality! Some readers are reading words on a page but James Marsters is telling a story!
Harry Dresden and the rest of the cast in this series of books have become REAL people to me. I can't wait to find out what happens to them next.
I purchased the first book in this series because I totally loved the very short lived tv series that was based on the Harry Dresden character. I'm now totally hooked on the audiobooks!
A good thriller and a very good reader. The story is dense with twists and characters, so it might demand more attention than first expected.
I'd heard so many good reviews of this series I wanted to try it out. I gave it two books, but I have to say I find myself wishing for the end of the book so I wouldn't have to listen anymore. It's very dark, at times gory. There's maybe twenty while seconds in the whole book where something isn't going horribly wrong, someone is getting murdered, or Murphy (his supposed friend?!) isn't accusing Dresden of murder himself. This series isn't for me. Too stressful.
