Yes, if you like books 1-12 then you will LOVE Cold Days
Harry as Winter Knight is quite fun.
On par with narration in books 1-12
Just wow, incredible listen.
We see a lot of old characters in new ways, as well as a fierce new little fairy in fishhook armor. Mab's ruthlessness and viciousness takes a vivid turn and yet at the end Harry defies her despite being her vassal. We see Mac in a new light and with new mysteries. Harry must deal with new and disturbing impulses which are probably brought on by the mantle of the Winter Knight. We come to understand the purpose of Demonreach, and we see it both as a place and a character. The Winter Lady shows incredible vulgarity and murderous intent, and as a result Harry winds up with friends in the Winter Court. Harry's mother's silver pentacle is returned to him, and he is gifted with a new leather coat, so we have the feeling we're getting back to the old Harry again. Harry and Karrin Murphy share a tender moment, and at the very end we still have a lot of mysteries but not one of those painful cliffhangers we've seen before in the Dresden Files series.
James Marsters is a great narrator as always, and the book is amazing. What's not to like?
Yes! Becuz I Love Harry and I Really liked this Story!
Harry of course! Becuz he NEVER disappoints as far as character growth he just keeps getting better!!
yes I have in Jim Butcher's CHANGES....I think his Performance Fabulous in Both! and I Agree James Marster's IS Harry! PLEASE keep Mr. Marster's as the READER!!
Some parts Made me laugh, I haven't quite finished yet So.....
I was alittle hesitate about starting a new series and Author BUT I Glad I did I REALLY Like Harry!!
In this case, yes. James Marsters has his delivery of the written form down so incredibly well that it's simply captivating. Originally I planned to space out my listening to this book so that it would last, however once I listened to the first hour I simply couldn't stop myself. Numerous times I found myself laughing out loud because of the excellent writing paired with Marsters superb voice work.
The best moments of Cold Day's are just about any interaction Harry has with his old friends and crew. All are heartfelt, all are exceptionally written, and all leave you wanting more book!
Humor, Drama, Concern, and a multitude of other feelings.
Lots of laughter, I mean this book made me full on belly laugh at times. It also had it's somber moments.
I recommend this book so hard, it'll make your teeth rattle. (Yes...I'm not sure what that means either)
I can't say enough great things about this book. The Harry Dresden series is the best Fantasy Series going right now, and this is the best book yet. Jim Butcher took his time writing this and it shows.. I didnt want it to end!
If you are not familiar with the Harry Dresden books, you will need to start at book 1. The first few books are good but not great... but stick with it and you will be rewarded. The series gets better and better as it goes, and you will really fall in love with the characters.
In this book , Harry becomes the Winter Knight and as usual, must go up against incredibly powerful villains as he saves the world. The story is really well written. And I feel for the people who are just reading this book instead of listening to it.. No one can bring a book to life like James Marsters... I found myself jumping up and down and cheering at some points!
This book is the Best Book in the Best Series going! Dresden fans will be very happy!
Small business owner, avid reader and listener, occasional writer.
James Marsters delivers a spot on performance. The story will satisfy existing fans and entice new followers.
A living, often naked?, Harry Dresden is far more satisfying than the lip chewing, commiserating, angst filled pseudo-ghost. Although another character transition book, this one, unlike Ghost Story, feels like a Dresden book. Twists, turns, insurmountable odds and a cast of characters that is familiar and still interesting and exciting.
Yes, I enjoyed this better, as it gives the characters a life of their own.
Harry Dresden - a good mix of sarcasm, self-deprecating humor, and compassion make him a faulty hero that everyone can root for.
I have listened to the entire Dresden File series narrated by Jame Marster and he has always done an excellent job.
I did find myself rooting for Harry and enjoying the twists and turns throughout the book,.
This was another good book in the Dresden Files series. Well written and well narrated, it was enjoyable from start to finish. If you are a fan of the supernatural (think Harry Potter not Twilight) then you'll enjoy this book.
Yes, we often re-listen to the books in the Dresden files, especially to look for hidden clues to events that happen in later books.
Harry of course. He captures the wry wit and self-deprecation just perfectly
Without Marsters, Ghost Story really didn't feel like the same universe of characters. The voices were not what we were used to hearing after a dozen books. It was like having your old friends back again. Also, I would suggest checking out Side Jobs before this one, as there are several times they reference things that happened in that short story collection.
Great continuation of the story. Great series, just keeps getting better and deeper. Masters is great as Dresden
