I have read all of the Dresden books and this is my second round of the audio version. I am a sci-fi and fantasy fanboy from a young age and this is by far my favorite series.
In this book Mab calls in one of the favors Harry owes her, demanding that he acts as her emissary, to negociate the return of Chicago's underworld kingpin). This causes the summer queen to set her emissaries after him. But we discover that that isn't even the main conflict in this book.
The Dresden story progresses in unexpected ways that are fun and daring. James performs the role of Harry perfectly, making me believe in his conflict.
For those who already enjoy the Dresden Files "Small Favor" is another solid, well told story. Jim Butcher does an excellent job wIth backstory for anyone picking up this book out of sequence or just boosting the memory of us dedicated fans who forgot a detail from an earlier adventure.
John Marsters captures the essence of Harry and does an amazing job with modulating to seperate characters. Fantastic choice of narrator. 4th time listening to this book.
Audio book lover, wife, mother to three boys. I listen whenever I'm alone and can put headphones in.
Love love love this series. I aclways come back to my Dresden. it's a well written series that keeps my interest book after book.
in fact I like Dresden so much I am taking a chance on his other series Codex of Alera. I keep hearing its just as good.
Marsters is really getting into the spirit of narration. The stories and flow of the stories improves with each volume. Harry Dresden is the best PI you've never heard of.
Jim Butcher improves on the Dresden files with each book in the series. A Dresden book without the performance of James Marsters is like Christmas dinner without a favorite relative.
