If you have listened to earlier books in the series you will know that its narrator has a regrettable tendency to whisper. This trait is still evident in this book, though much improved from the first two. In regards to the story it is one of continual twists & mistakes piling upon mistake for our hero. The failures and successes combine to give this book a bittersweet feel, like pure dark chocolate. Enjoy!
I just started this series a month ago and it is fantastic so far. I love the humor and the writing style of this series. This is definitely where the series starts to kick off. This book will leave you wanting more.
I listened to the first two audiobooks and was generally enjoyed them, but felt like I had a disconnect with Harry. Grave Peril changed that. James Marsters' voice has usurped Paul Blackthorne as Mr. Dresden for me (loved the television series and binged it recently after listening to Fool Moon). I have recommended the Dresden Files to several co-workers and a few have picked it up. Some are avid fantasy/sci-fi readers and had never heard of The Dresden Files or Mr. Butcher. I am happy to have introduced them to a series that has reignited my passion for reading, and listening, to stories about those things that go bump in the night, and about those heroes who bump back (I know, Hellboy reference, but I feel it fits).
best in the series. will look at other works by this author. enjoyed the story and great accompanying narrator. excellent
I love to read but never have the time anymore. I found Audible and it has been a wonderful surprise!
I fall a little more in love with these books after each one I finish. The Carpenter family are just amazing and friendships that Harry has are ones we all wish for.
So I hear this is where the series really gets going. I certainly enjoyed it.
Marsters is an excellent reader as always. There are usually 3 words per book that are mispronounced, which confuses me listening to it, e.g. "writhe" in this one. Regardless his reading is fantastic.
