The Harry Dresden series continues to get better book by book. I'm impressed with how well the books join together, but each book still tells a distinct story. I'm looking very forward to the next one.
I love a good mystery, especially series, also a long time Stephen King fan. Enjoy reading and listening to multiple books at a time.
I continue to enjoy the series. I love the interjection of humor Butcher uses. Can't wait to get to the next one.
First, James Marsters is simply the best narrator, providing great interpretations and unique voices for each character.
As for the story, this one stands out from the others I've listened to because it relies on much more than power and sleuthing. Instead of a one-man show about a guy beating up evil (and paying for it), we get a glimpse of the political landscape and Harry really starts to notice and use it to his advantage. For once, Harry doesn't just suffer from how things are, but attempts to spread his influence to change things by using his allies. The result is that we get more rounded characters than we've seen in the past, and the story becomes smarter.
