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.

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.
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.
The best one yet. Doom and foreboding and hope all bundled into a great continuation. Forget Ghost Story, it was a bad dream.
I would listen to it again if I started the series from scratch. And I will, someday. But I will wait for the entire arc to finish before I do. Years down the road??? I hope not.
It is *almost* a reboot of the series. As has been seen in the earlier books, the changes here will carry on to future books. The tone is more gray and thus it has you thinking through motives, how YOU would have solved things, and in general, it involves your cerebellum and engrosses you in the story.
I woulda if I coulda.
It is a good story and the narration gives the characters better personality than if I had sounded their voices out in my head. That is why I like Audible and good voice actors.

I had been worrying how Harry Dresden would pull off sticking to his moral and ethical stances once he is sworn to his post as the Winter Knight. I did not want Harry to make choices that I couldn't at least defend to an extent, as part of why I love him as a character is that I can understand his thought process and how he makes decisions when things fall apart. I can relate to his moral prerogatives and concerns, and even when he makes mistakes, they aren't the sort that make me feel like he has irreversibly betrayed some precious moral code.
I found myself liking how Jim Butcher handles Harry's role as the Winter Knight, since luckily Harry manages to maintain a grasp on his moral compass. Furthermore, Harry is never subservient by nature, and even when under the thumb of queen Mab, he finds ways to do things his way.
I do see that Harry is having some changes, mostly becoming more primal and angry in heated moments, so I hope that Jim Butcher does not keep Harry committed to the Winter Knight post too long. I continue to dread the day that Harry's character loses his grip on his moral senses entirely and does something that will make me feel distaste and disappointment with the series. So far, it's been a tight rope walk that keeps me guessing but which has ended to my satisfaction, but the Winter Knight business is the biggest threat yet to Harry's moral compass.
I love having Marsters back as Harry's voice, I do not want the series to stray from Marsters again, as one of the biggest attractions of the audio books has been the fantastic performance that Marsters does. I have a huge crush on Harry Dresden, because I have had a huge crush on Marsters ever since he was Spike in Buffy.
The series continues to tease us about whether Harry finds a happy, romantic outcome with Karen Murphy. Harry has been single way too long, but his life is complicated, and his feelings for Karen have continued to develop. I have my hopes up that the moral, stabilizing force of Karen in his life will help Harry in the future, especially if the personality changes brought on by being the Winter Knight continue to progress.
