By this book Butcher has really hit his stride. The first was a college project and the second was a little better. While the stories and characters were great the mechanics of writing were still somewhat raw. By this book all cylinders are firing and it is a great read.
I loved it. The books only get better and better. James Marsters is an excellent narrator. Nothing like having a narrator who can read a comma LOL. I'm also a really big fan of a narrator who can bring the story to life. Using voices, accents, sounds, and projecting the tone of the moment.
I would say my only negative critique. would be that I wish the stories were longer. I spend a credit and blow through the audiobook very fast. also I think I'm on book 5 and Dresden has only cast 4 or 5 spells. those things bother me sometimes, but everything else about the story is so good that I still gave it 5 stars. it's a fantastic story.
I am of the firm opinion, that opinions are onions
This book is an excellent volume in the series. Dresden showcases his deductive skills and magical prowess all while confronting dark forces as they assault Chicago.
If you enjoy this series check out the iron Druid series and the Alex verus series. Both books are like this one. By that I mean wonderfully vivid storytelling and an amazing blend between a perfect story and a perfect narrator to convey that story.
First book in second major story arc.. Nicademus introduced. Molly growing up. More global in nature.
