Oh yes, a real non stop action ride!
Mab is so bad she is good.....
there be monsters here....
Couln't stop listening well into the night
I actually did listen to Cold Days twice. Jim Butcher always has those tiny details that you might miss on the first go that turn out to be significant later. Listening it the second time was even better than the first!
I literally couldn't stop the recording until the end. I had to finish it. This is a great addition to the series. The ending sets up nicely for the next book, which I'll be anxiously waiting for. I just hope it doesn’t take too long. James Marsters, as always, does a fantastic job with the character voices. I nearly spit my soda out when I heard him do a female pixie voice, but he pulled it off.
It was a good installment in a great series. Nice to have Harry back and struggling to do the right thing again. If you like the other books, you'll enjoy this one too.

The narrator used a good variety of voices and injected personality into the voices he created.
Very high in my list of favorites
Harry was back to being Harry....loved his interactions with Thomas.
His performance and voices for all of the characters are so distinctive and rich.
I laughed out loud many time and yes,,,I cried a bit too.
Can't wait for the next installment in the series.
Jim Butcher takes the reader on another wonderful adventure with Dresden escaping seemingly no-win situations. Dresden gets himself into very interesting situations as the White Knight with a target on his back. His friends (and a few enemies) come to his rescue more than once just when it seems Dresden's doomed for sure.
Say something about yourself!
Good question, I've listen to this whole series and been waiting for this book. I got tried of every time Harry crossed a street he a major fight. Once or twice OK but 50 time way too much I cut the last 4 hours of the second part of three and didn't miss anything after starting part 3.
No problems here.
It would have to be rated x and over 3 hours. Guess not.
No sure I'll continue this series, length of the book will have a lot to do with it.
Tell us about yourself!
Brings 'it was a dark and stormy night' to a whole new level. Fun and fast moving
Harry and his inner dialog. It is rare to be able to follow the inner workings of a person of Spock-like reserve. To be a witness to the passion and compassion that forms his character, as well as enjoying the spooky side's version of Sherlockian logic. Add a dash of self deprecation aka humble self examination and you have yourself a real likable guy.
But I will say it is the byplay of the entire cast of characters that makes it all work.
I always love the big reveal, but the fact that it all just moves along so enticingly is due to the fact that each scene builds on the past and towards the finale with little or no downtime.
Yes and I have the red eyes and sleep deprivation to prove it.
I have liked every book in this series to date- not a dud in the bunch (although I will admit to loving this narrator above all others). I like that his characters stay in character and develop as they would according to their experiences through the stories. Can't wait for the next one.
James Marsters is Harry Dresden
Wish I could have. Hated to turn it off.
Having followed all these characters from STORM FRONT this next chapter of Harry's life was the hardest to listen to. Butcher does an outstanding job with this story. The ending broke my heart. There is the hope for the future though.
