Yes. The plot is great and plus we have Harry back, meaning James Marsters.
The island and the daughters of Mab
Dialog, plot, descriptions of events and characters. Each book has characters moving forward with their lives. Finding out why characters are the way they are. It is like a long letter from close friends catching up on what has been happening in their lives.
There are far to many to pick one.
It is hard to wait for his next book.
This was such a good story in this series. I wasn't quite sure which way it was going to go. Dead is dead, right? So, there was that little bit of contrivance to keep Dresden in the land of the living, but we love Dresden and want to keep enjoying his crazy life.
It's interesting how much Dresden has matured over the last few books. He's always been an old-fashioned chivalrous guy, but having a daughter has really had an impact on him. He's become more of a "big-picture" guy. It will be so interesting (and entertaining) to see how Maggie influences him and becomes part of these stories. And now Molly's story will become more than tangential to Dresden's. Sad for Molly, but a great plot twist.
So much happened in this book. And it was good to have James Marsters back. He does a great job of bringing Dresden to live and involving the reader in the story.
Winter is Hot
Shoot, nothing really compares to the Dresden novels, that's why I enjoy them so much.
The witty turn of voice, alterations of voice treatments that bring Harry to life.
When Harry gets a glimpse into Mab's past.
These books, ALL of them, well, except for the 2nd one, have been some of my favorite reading of the past decade.
An exciting story that keeps the action going with the character, and the story line. Well-written, impeccable voice performance. I never thought of James Marster's voice as a woman - but he carries those characters with the same amount of finesse as he performs Harry.
I don't have a comparison at this time. But it says something that this is the first audio book I've listened through to completion without losing interst because the performance or the story dragged me down to boredom.
James manages to capture the characterizations and details of the author's writing without letting the story get bogged in the details. It wasn't until I listened to it that I realized how much deail Jim puts in his writing. It sets the scene beautiful in my head when I read it, but it can drag the performance audio down if not done right. James Marsters does it right.
Sure - but who has that much time? At most I can cobble 90 minutes of listening time. And it goes by too quickly.
I am purchasing the other books in the series as I can. They really are that enjoyable.
Wizardy, Death, Regret
Cross between a good thriller and fantasy meet Stephen King, sort of Dark Tower meets Once Upon a Time
Has to be Harry, but I loved Toot Toot and Lacuna
I couldn't stop listening to the last 1/3 because once the party started, I couldn't stop.
Just loved this Dresden. The character has come so far from the first book. So glad to have lots of "issues" worked through, finally. Now, time for Maggie and The Storm.
Who am I? I am a person who loves to read science fiction and fantasy, as well as mysteries and horror. I love audible!
I could listen to this book over and over and still have fun listening.
Harry has new powers and he is learning to use them.
I like everything about it. He is Harry.
Yes when he relized that Molly would become the lady of winter.
Can't wait for the next book.
listening to an "old friend". VERY happy to have the master back. Dresden just isn't Dresden without the voice of James Marsters.
I was wondering what was going to Happen after Harry spent most of the last book dead. But Butcher pulls it off and we find Harry finally working as Mab's winter night.
This is my all time favorite book series.
I honestly can say I would like or dislike either of them.
With the return of James Marsters who does a simply amazing job bringing the story to life, and the enjoyable way that each book is written I simply couldnt stop listening.
He really puts his energy in to making Harry Dresden come to life.
