I am a 27 year old nurse pursuing a nurse practitioner degree. My favorite book genres are: fantasy, science fiction, medicine and sociology
I am addicted to this series. I find it captivating, and I have a hard time putting it down.
I feel that this is an excellent listen for fans of the Supernatural TV series, Buffy fans or readers of the Iron Druid series.
Marsters continues to wow me with his narration. He has irreversibly become the voice of Harry Dresden for me. I can't wait to see where this series takes me next.
Good story. We learn a lot about Harry and other character's past and connections. Interesting stuff which I won't reveal here. I can't wait to see where it all goes. I like all these books. This one is no exception.
The humor and horror mixes perfectly. Read to perfection with all the little voice infections just right. I have loved every book I listen to in this series. Harry Dresden is the quiet wizard of Chicago with interesting friends and foes. You have to give the series a try. If you like well read humorous horror with a mysterious edge, you'll love The Dresden File Series. Blood Rites was just another turn in the ongoing story of Harry's interestingly dangerous life.
This is a typical Jim Butcher book, not to say that takes anything away from the story or characters. He (Butcher) stays true to his characters without being monotonous.
Other books that are comparable ... The Anita Baker series! Everytime, it never fails, I find myself thinking what if Dresden and Anita got together!? The chaos! The wonderful chaos!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, DRESDEN!
The Dresden Files are amoung some of my favorite books
Harry is always entertaining. Flambouyant yet unassuming at the same time.
The inflections and sarcasm in his voice at the right time make really make the story.
When Harry joins with the white vampires after they try to kill him
Twists and turns, waiting to see what Harry has to go up against next keeps me wanting to listen more and more. Am really enjoying this series so far with many books after this one
I don't know why but I just couldn't get into this. Maybe it was the low almost montone of the narrator. I suspect the story got better but I moved on. Must be good with positive reviews on the Dresden series but I just didn't get it.
I absolutely love the Dresden Files every book continues on a fun action pack life of a modern day wizard Blood Rites so far is my favorite I loved the connection with Thomas.
Always, the Dresden Files catch my interest and keep me wanting more. Listening to the audio version read by James Marsters just makes it all come to life even more.
You need to read this and find out for yourself - why spoil it for you.
His characterizations and subtle voice changes bring each character to life.
This is too long for my busy schedule, but find Jim Butcher's books make you want to read/hear more as soon as you have a free moment.
I'll be listing to the next in the series starting tomorrow, for my Monday commute time. What more can you say to compliment an author but that you can't wait to start their next book?
I purchased the Kindle e-book version and the Audible Whispersync version of this book. It is the best of both worlds! I can connect my Kindle to my car's radio system and enjoy listening when I commute, or listen when working around the house; then use Whispersync to switch back to the book when I need to do quiet reading. They are working seamlessly for me and I am loving this feature.
