I am an entertainer...so I spend a lot of time on the road. I take my audio seriously. I appreciate great writing and outstanding narration.
If you like your paranormal detectives with a noir-kinda-wizardy flavor...this is it.
You'll love the Dresden Files.
Now that I've heard the complete audiobook, including the final chapter, I enjoyed this Harry Dresden adventure just as much as the first four books. I'm looking forward to Book 6 (Blood Rites) and Book 7 (Dead Beat) now, which we might have to wait for until July 2010. Hope I'm wrong about that.
But boy was it worth the wait. The stride that Butcher hits around book 3 continues here. I would be surprised if anyone could listen this to this book and not find themselves laughing out loud while getting sucked into another great adventure from the worlds second most famous wizard named Harry. It is going to be a long seven months waiting for book 6!
This series keeps getting better even though there is a bit of a formula with the stories, I don't know how its going to end within the first five minutes of the book because he actually holds back.
Marsters always does a great job, but just like the stories he is getting better with time.
Yes.Because I am really enjoying the Dresdin books.I wish I could afford them all.One at a time will do for now though.
The story line and James Marsters is great in the narration for them.
I can't distinguish between them.I like them all.I think Harry is my favorite though.
The humor in it is great for a mystery.
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
You would think Dresden would get a break after Summer Knight, but nooooo Jim Butcher had other deadly plans for our friend. You would think that at most there would be one deadly enemy, but again noo there are many. I felt really bad for Dresden. But at least there was new friends as well here, at least he wasn't by himself.
it is unbelievable how things progress in this series, and how Dresden developed over time. Such a great series.
I wonder what will happen next!?
Harry is finally working towards an even footing in life. He's as close to financially solvent as he has been in a while, thanks in part to an appearance on a local talk show.
At the talk show he meets a vampire general from the Red Court who wants Harry to agree to a duel to stop the war he started and a priest who needs Harry's help recovering a holy relic, the shroud of Turin.
There's no avoiding the duel, and Harry being Harry, agrees to look into the shroud when his long distance sort of but not quite ex-girlfriend Susan Rodriguez, one time journalist now half Red Court vampire, walks back into this life with a warning. Don't duel.
What's not to like about a Dresden novel? There was a lot of heart, endings and beginnings in this book. Loved it.
Love listening to audio books at work or on the road.
Already have 3 times, Dresden is my favorite series
He is the embodiment of the character and really brings the story alive.
I would. This book really checked all my boxes. The characters are great, the plot was well thought-out, the narration enriched the story...what more could I want? I would totally listen to the whole series again...^_^
Loved the short scenes with the mischievous Molly Carpenter...too funny :)
The most notiable piece from this book is the amount of introspection that Dresden has. This in turn caused me to have some of the same moments of introspection. I don't want to say that this book is "deep" yet it is.
Death Masks also marks the introduction of Christian undercurrent that will continue for the rest of the series. A nice touch that Jim Butcher masterfully weaves into the book as if it's gold string into quilt. Instead of feeling beat over the head with philosophy and religion the undercurrent pushes the story along.
