Marsters is back, thankfully, and Cold Days was one of the better additions to the series. It's hard to review these books individually since they all have a formula that just works. But I do have favorites....starting obviously with Changes....then grave peril and dead beat probably tie for second....and I would fit cold days in there at number 3.
Anyways, if you already a fan then this review is pointless, if you haven't read any dresden files yet then you are a horrible person.
The plot of the Dresden files just gets better can't wait for the next book!!!
Dresden's story continues in a really relevant and poignant (and exciting!) way. I don't want to give away any spoilers in this section, but this series is really just one amazing story that comes in volumes, this new addition being no exception. Butcher keeps giving more detail and insight into the amazing world he has constructed and it only enriches the story.
Dresden's Birthday Party - Court Intrigue isn't even a major theme (well....), but wow! it could be.
Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice....
If you are new to the Dresden Files, go listen to Storm Front (http://www.audible.com/pd?asin=B002V8KYMI) asap.
If you and Dresden have met before... well, you already know, don't you?
Yes. I like to Go back and listen to the whole Dresden files over again while i'm at work.
I liked Dresden meeting up with his friends again and the different famous characters that he runs into.
I love the different voices he gives to the character. Especially the tiny fairies like the ZA lords captain of the guard :D I never took the time till this book to really appreciate all the sound effects that Marsters does. In fact I didn't buy the last book from audible just because it didn't have James Marsters doing the voice. I read it normally. So if James is reading this thank you so much for doing these books and please continue I really appreciate the work you do on the Dresden series.
A Cold Knight to remember
Any of my friends interested in a great, entertaining read could not find a much better book.
This story moves quick, alot of bang for your buck. Great entertainment.
This reading is on par with the other Dresden Files readings. Very good.
Thank goodness Dresden has his body back and his friends behind him. Cold Days is a return to action. Dresden is never better than when he has his friends to give him grief and bad guys to stomp.
James Marsters IS Dresden. I can't listen to anyone else narrate these books; even when reading them, I hear his voice. He has a great grasp of all the characters and brings them all to life, but Dresden is the key.
A Fun Stroy
Good characters and a dramatic reading.
If you made it this far in the seris you'll love this book.
hard biting fiction
Harry Dresden - he struggles to do the right thing
Harry Dresden - the voice is just what I feel that Harry would sound like
Was not sure where the author could go after Harry 'died' and then came back as the winter knight to an evil queen of fairy. But Jim Butcher delivered again and as the story moved on we find that evil is not always what we think that it is.
In the top 70 percent.
The Lead Character, Harry
The Big Battle on the Island
Several, Harry is a very introspective character. Deciding what is the right thing to do when all paths seem to lead to darkness, is compelling.
You should read some of the earlier books in the Dresden Files first. They will help you understand underlying themes.
Dark, fun, exciting
Well most of the Dresden files lol, but seriously... There is no comparison to these books. Butcher is in a league of his own.
Any scene with Thomas or Mab, and I love Dresden's "Die Hard" moments when he's getting the snot kicked out of him.
Inside my head!
Read all of Butcher's work, great stuff.
