This is probably my favorite Dresden Files book to date. After book 12, "Changes," I was so excited to see what would happen next, and was annoyed by book 13 because only a little of that was really addressed. In this one, we finally get to see more of the consequences from his choices in "Changes," and it's EPIC. I have always been partial to fairies and they are all over this story. You get to learn a little more about Mab, see more of what's beneath her cold fairy queen exterior, and the Erlking returns! Marsters also returns as the narrator, which was very much needed.
I love the dresden files have reread/ listened to the series multiple times this books story line made me relisten to the entire series again and see details i never saw before in the other books it is awesome
lesser of evils
Jim Buther's stories keep getting better with each new round. How in the heck is that even possible? While Mr. Glover gave a passing performance on Ghost Story, it was the strength of the story itself that still made an enjoyable experience. And while his less than great performance did not kill the story, his performance was just average enough to bring down the enjoyment level for me, personally. But James Marsters in this story took what was a great story to a height otherwise unattainable in an entertainment experience. The James Marsters/Jim Butcher team-up is sublime perfection.
All of them. His mastery of characterizations and voice differentiation is unmatched in audio books. I particularly liked his portrayal of Lacuna and his delivery of the line when Harry is getting dressed and puts on the band Tee and Lacuna inquires about his weapons maker! I mean, how perfection is made in even the smallest of exchanges. Butcher is a genius of characterization and dialog. And Marsters is unsurpassed at delivery.
Spoiler alert: When Harry and Mav have that tender moment at the end, in addition to when we see who Kringle really is! Wonderful moment for me.
Yes, It is a great book with a complicated plot.
The reaction of Harry's friends to his returning from the dead as a living person instead of a ghost this time.
James Marsters does his usual excellent job dramatizing the book.
Butcher does not let you down on the humor or the one liners.
The way Harry's mouth continues to get him in trouble. Also James Marsters does a magnificent job in reading these books for audio.
Harry meets Santa.
Bob the Skull
The Winter Knight is coming.
There are aspects of the story, which I wish had gone other ways, but that's just because I am *THAT* involved in the universe that Jim Butcher has created. The audio version voiced by James Marsters continues to be as good as the writing. If you've liked the 14 audio books in this series before this, you'll continue to enjoy Cold Days.
I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!
This really is a must listen series. The series never gets old even if you binge listen to three books in a row. In this installment, the summer and winter ladies are out to save the world--or are they? Harry reunites with his posse and saves the world while introducing us to new foe. James Marsters rocks as always. Thank goodness he is back.
Dad, Dentist, Adventurer. Well... at least 2 of those.
He's the Winter Freaking Knight now. What more do you need to know. The Dresden files are packed with action and everything that happens has consequences, unlike most fantasy sci-fi.
I laugh out loud
I love all the characters but of course Harry is the best!
All the books Jim Butcher writes are very funny, grabs you, sits you down, & makes you pay attention to what the story.
Awesome! So glad to see that book 13 was a dismal fluke as Butcher is back in true form. Once again this installation has everything you would expect; familiar characters, Harry in another impossible situation, the pending ending of the world by mysterious forces... perfect!! This is why I love this series. Great plot twists and turns that ring true and bring in tons of elements from the previous books. Now that I'm finally caught up with the series I feel the pain of having to WAIT! It was nice to start the next as soon as I finished one.
