The storyline in this book was much less interesting or gripping than in previous installments. Although Martsters' performance is improved in this one (someone learned how to pronounce 'runes' and 'sigils,' finally!), Chapter 25 contains a very uncomfortable sex scene in which consent is written in very dubiously. It was graphic and not plot relevant. Extremely unpleasant to listen to and a disappointing downturn in the series. The writing of the female characters is getting more phoned-in with each book. You're better than this, Jim Butcher.
I listen to a lot of everything. I really enjoy fiction, but also business books, self-improvement and lectures.
I really enjoy these books. I have read 6 in the series and keep wanting to read the next book.
The balance of well developed characters you care about and a pace that allows you to be immersed in the story is hard to find elsewhere and impressively executed. If you like fantasy ground in the hard facts of everyday life. I have found very few that contend with The epics of the Dresden Files.
James Marsters does an AMAZING job of voicing all the male characters, and even does decent justice to the female ones as well. However since the book has some "steamy" scenes here and there, I would have definitely preferred a female voice in order to narrative the story as well. My only complaint, the rest was flawless!

Series keeps getting better and better.. Jim Butcher tells a compelling story that Issa hard to put down.
