Butcher continues in quality, rhythm, and style in this latest 24 hours in the life of Harry Dresden. Not a genre for everyone, but compelling and a very entertaining listen, once one is accustomed to the graphic novel and pop-culture stylistics.Marsters gives wonderful voice to the cast of characters, new and old.
The central characters, at least 6, are well fleshed out, and enrich the overall story tapestry.
Yes. It is definitly a story with many twists and turns in it. Loved the suspense.
I liked it all! I liked the story and all the angles thrown into it. Didn't know what was going to happen next.
I liked it when he and Karen connected briefly on a personal note. Also, the bond between he and Thomas. Also, his moral character to not pursue Molly for many reasons.
There were several moments that made me laugh out loud.
When I start a Dresden book, I want to listen to it constantly. If I have to stop the story for awhile, I am constantly thinking about it. Really keeps my interest.
GREAT .. What can I say just another super book from one of fantasies finest writers. But you must read the whole series.. Paul T.
I have thoroughly enjoyed tagging alongside Harry Dresden in his many adventures, and terrifying tight-spots. I felt his sorrow when experienced great loss or had to commit terrible deeds for the greater good. I have laughed with him (and at him) during all of his awkward moments. And got enraged at the unjust persecution he experienced at the hands of the White Council.
After all of the experiences I have shared with Harry (I feel like I can call him by his first name) who would have believed things are just getting started?! All of the various storylines are beginning to coalesce into a rather vast and beautifully epic conflict. I am thrilled about the prospects for the evolution of the battles yet to come.
Jim Butcher has done an excellent job with these novels. The world he created and the people within it are beautiful, scary, courageous, and everything in between. He definitely provokes an emotional reaction from me as I follow the life of Harry Dresden. James Marsters has been phenomenal with his performances, and I enjoy listening to the various vocal interpretations he has developed for all of the characters.
My only criticism would be that as a repeat reader and avid follower of the series, the reintroduction of people and certain experiences within the world of The Dresden Chronicles can get kind of redundant, and stalls the story. Rather, the explanation of those aspects each time they are reintroduced. But not a criticism that I feel detracts from the overall experience of the novel.
I am looking forward to the continuation of the series with great excitement.

The whole Dresden series is amazing. Wish there were more.
The characters are amazing, Butcher brings back people from multiple books in the series.
Marsters's performance is great. I missed him in Ghost Story.
I wish I could have listened to it straight through, but as long as it is it took me a week.
Jim Butcher, please keep writing.
So happy to have James Marsters back! John Glover did a good job on Ghost Story, but it's like wearing your favorite old slippers rather than the new ones :)
The anger & frustration of Harry's friends over his assumed death & now his position as Winter Knight, has caried over from Ghost Story, but understandably so. Even the readers of this book are going to wonder if (or for how long) Harry can keep the beast inside.
Harry is once again thrust into numerous situations which must each be solved immediatly or the world (or at least his friends & family) will come to an end. He begins to realise that the early days of his career, although slow & unexciting. were a lot easier!
I'm so glad to have Thomas back in the story & loved their reunion & the banter they care on.
Jim Butcher ALWAYS makes me laugh & cry!
I hope that the next book takes place very shortly after this one, so that we see how things go between the Winter Knight & the Winter Lady.
Harry Dresden adds new responsibilities and powers to his already impressive list... A fun ride, full of the classic irreverent reparte with beings both great and small.
I want the next Dresden book now!
Molly is growing moore
James Marsters just gets better every time
I'm glad I don't live in Chicago for a few reasons, but if I did, I'd love the musems and I'd hope to see Harry Dresden along the street. I'd know him immediately! He'd be the tall, sexy, guy in the long black coat, wearing a Fedora, and holding a staff, and he's crackle with power.
I was really worried about him; he seemed hoplessly gone at the end of his last book. Now, I'm awfully glad he's back. It'll be interesting to see how he deals with the changes in his life in the next story. I'm thinking he really needs to find a little bit of happiness sometime soon.
I like a good read with mystery and romance
it was thrilling.
it was like eating pringles chips once you started you couldn't stop.
As always i love harry because you get to experience his emotions and have almost the same reactions.
It was wonderful it made me want to shout in triumph, cry in frustration and smile sadly at the circumstances that can unwittingly befall one.
