and yet, the tension was so fierce, I couldn't have continued much longer. Pairing Jim Butcher and James Marsters was a stroke of genius. Marsters makes it completely easy to suspend disbelief that there is only one person reading the parts of Harry Dresden and all the other characters in the stories. The entire series is constructed so that each story stands alone, yet becomes a part of the whole fabric that is Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden. I'm not ready to say goodbye to Harry. Might there be more?
I offer an unqualified 5 stars for both author and narrator.
This is a classic series with classic characters such as in Lords of the Ring, Sherlock Holmes, Wizard of Oz, Robin Hood, and the Hobbit. There are puzzles to be solved, relationships forged, and villains to be vanquished and hearts to be won.
James Marsters is excellent when it comes to reading the Dresden Files. I can not separate the actor from the character now. His reading of this particular book was on point and very emotional.
Thank you Jim Butcher for the Harry Dresden universe and I wait for more to come.
I'm an engineer that took all my electives in English and Art! Fantasy novels with moral depth and colorful worlds fill my library.
This novel hurts as so much changes in the life of Dresden, but I couldn't put the book down as I raced through the novel in just a couple of days. This guy is a master.
Right from the start you are engaged with the characters of all of Jim Butcher's books. I can't put them down and I watch for the next one more like a kid waiting for Christmas morning. Can't wait for Ghost, and am hoping another Codex is on the way too!
Right about book 3 this series really took off for me -- the writing smoothed out and the narration found its groove & I fell in love with Harry's story. Jim's development and James' interpretations of the Dresden novels quite simply ROCK. Start at the beginning and catch the bug with the rest of us! BTW, to settle the speculation about whether or not there's another book coming, see Jim's interview. I won't spoil it for you by spilling the beans!
This book is as good as the previous Harry Dresden stories. I enjoyed listening, the reader spoke like what I imagined Harry would sound like.
I love audible books. I can paint, run errands and clean my house while listening to a book. The best.
I started listening to this series through audible and I just love it. I have listened to all twelve books. Now, I have to wait for the next one! The title is definitely no joke. Changes? that is putting it mildly. James Marsters is such a great narrator! He just brings it to life. If they ever did a movie he would have to be Dresden. Mr. Butcher please please hurry and give us another book.
I have listened to every one of these books, and this one is the best to date. Marsters reading of this story is his best work in the series. The story is truly gripping, and gets you involved with the characters. I would recommend this book, and subsequent series to anyone looking for an entertaining adventure.
Each book just keeps getting better and better. I can't wait for the next one to come out!
Jim Butcher hits it out of the park with this book in the series. I thought the 11th book was good, but this one was fantastic. The Dresden Files never disappoints and this one is truly fantastic. James Marsters is perfection again.
