Butcher does a great job of reinventing Harry while throwing a lot of great twists that had me screaming - what?! He also had me laughing out loud, something his last book didn't do as well. I still loved it as a fan of the series but felt a little let down. Cold Days made up for it all. I'm back in love with Harry.
Harry of course was the best character. His reunions with the gang from his brother to his apprentice made me as a fan tear up, cheer and laugh.
Yes, thank God they got James Marsters back on the Dresden Files audiobooks. He is the voice of Harry Dresden and one of the let downs of the last audiobook was his absence. The hole was obvious, big and insurmountable. Those shoes just can't be filled - sorry! However his return in Cold Days was fantastic.
I just said it Harry's Back! Thank God!
This is well worth the listen if you're a fan of the series and if you want to be a fan I'd start with Storm Front, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to try Cold Days.
Loving it!!! I've loyally listened & read each book as they are released. This one stays true to form with a bit maturing. The first hour or so has a lot of sexual tones (not the most appropriate to listen to at work) but gets back to basics soon enough. Kept me laughing and made a few more fans from my coworkers.
I will add that I wouldn't have gotten the audible version if it wasn't narrated by James Marsters. Welcome back Marsters!!!!!
My favorite author and reader
Butcher has created a wonderful complex storyline that gets better with every book
Excellent - have listened to quite a few of his books
Yes but I like listening over time to get the nuances and details better understood
You mean the movie lied!?
Yes. Because it's freaking awesome!
The Dresden books are a beast unto themselves.
It's not Harry Dresden unless it's James Marsters.
I laughed several times.
This book is an amazing return after being so disappointed by the last book. It had everything that I felt was missing from Ghost Story.
There were some surprises!
He does a fantastic job of portraying the personalities and moods of all of the characters.
5 stars along with the rest of the Dresden Files! Glad to have James Marsters reading again. It just wasn't the same without him.
In the last few books we have seen Harry lose absolutely everything. In this book he gets a little of it back.
Um.. Harry! (All of them!) Marsters is fantastic!
Of course. Did I mention its epicness? You will be absolutely shocked, I promise.
Mouse is back! I love that dog.
This was one of the best Dresden books to date.
It was in a class of its own.
When Dresden finally kisses Murphy.
*SPOIL ALERT* MOLLY BECOMES THE WINTER LADY.... I had strange looks shot my way after hearing that.
Jim Butcher always pleases with the Dresden series. Harry's attitude and dialog always crack me up.
Yes, Marsters again delivers
Summer Knight- Summer Knight was my favorite, I particularly enjoy when Jim Butcher involves the Fairly lore. Honestly I was afraid he was going to kill off Mab, one of the best characters in his franchise!
The Hunt with Kringle, I can only imagine!
When Molly became the Winter Lady... I did not see this coming- interesting twist, I look forward to see where this goes.
