Can't wait for the next installment of the Dresden Files. The writing is top notch with unexpected twists and turns and the narration is spot on. Truly entertaining!
I'm a country potter, gardener, flute player and tin tinker living with my husband, an electrical engineer & cabinet maker.
This is not my kind of story at all. I can't even remember how I got started. It might have been because of James Marsters' and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This is well written and full of similes. I love a good simile. It's not serious but it is fun and a great way to spend a summer working in the yard and traveling the underworld with Harry.
Very good and nerdy book, you have to have a certain level of tolerance for that kind of stuff. I really enjoyed it
The characters was really good
It was very good as usual
No parts in particular, overall good read
Love listening to audio books at work or on the road.
yes... yes I would
Harry is back, Back to kick ass and take names. With his mantle he is more powerful and kick ass then ever.
I'm just a fan girl who write romance and reads too much.
I will lissen to Cold day several times but disliked the books slow start. By chapter 13 the story got rolling and Mr. Butcher finally got rolling in his usual style of fun exciting writing.
I would rate this book as the most difficult book in the series to read and didn't get me involved with the story until about chapter 13. If you love Dresden hang in there the book gets better the more you read it but the first 10+ chapters are not fast moving and do not leaving you on Butcher typical cliff hangers. Once your past the first third of the book thing suddenly snap back to the style and fast pace Butcher is know for. I strongly suggest getting the audio book James Marsters help keep you interested through the slow parts.
Mr. Marsters brings a slow book to life. I tried to read this book several times but once i got this audio book it was great to listen too.
Once Harry got out of Fairy things got much more exciting and the book got funny and full of action.
Do buy the audible book and forget trying to wade through the written book, James Masters brings even this book alive.
SysAdmin because developers need Super Heroes
This is an excellent series to read in order but one of the nice things about Jim Butcher is the fact that he writes the books in such way that they compound on previous story but also he give little synopsis of previous tales so the reader is not left in the dark; also this great so you don't have to go back and read all the book all over again.
Jim Butcher has done an outstanding job with this latest installment. I love the book, I love the way James Marsters does the narration (I still cannot get over how well he transitions from male to female voices without a hitch). This book is great - character development, story-line and of course details etc. Butcher mixes and simmers the brew until you are hooked and cannot go back. Every installment gets better and better. Even though the subject matter is fiction/fantasy - Jim does it in a way that is believable and keeps the reader wanting more. I have listened to this audiobook 3 times (I have a long commute) and even so I find myself getting into the scenes and characters finding nuances that I missed before. The interaction between some characters is downright hilarious while poignant and heartfelt moments still highlight some of Dresden's softer attributes without seeming sappy or awkward. Don't worry guys - this is PACKED with action, Harry is still Dirty Harry when it comes to the bad guys. Lots of killing, lots of magic and a lot of faeries. Definitely worth the time and money.
All of the books are great. Well edited and well cast but not confusing. All character strings are well followed up and humor is fun part of book. Wish some of the other books of this type had funny components.
All hail the Zahh Lord!
No extreme reactions but just enjoyed them.
Author and Editor did an excellent job bringing these books to market! Nice work!!
Avid reader and aspiring writer. I review (to some extent) everything I read. Follow me on twitter! @Jenniloo_BkLvr
So eager for the next book... but the chick in me is pissed about the lack of "romance follow through". lol, ah well. Still, Butcher did NOT leave us out in the cold (yuk yuk) with this story. Amazing action, fantastic drama and I am crazy excited to see what happens next!
Another epic battle this time involving the various creatures of Faerie. Enjoyed it thoroughly. Marsters is once again phenomenal. Can't wait for Skin Game.
