Sounds to me like the powers that be were more concerned with a quick turnaround on their investment than they were with the overall quality of a product that had developed a cult following over 12, count em TWELVE former performances.
This should be a case study on how not to treat your audience.
Fair is fair, the narration wasn't bad. Were this the first Dresden book I'd read, I'd have no problem with it. But Glover doesn't have Dresden's voice, Maab's cadence, Murphy's chutzpah, Molly's nubility (is that a word? It should be). He couldn't possibly have it because this is his first crack at a LONG established format.
That's not his fault, not Jim Butcher's fault, no one but whoever the idiot was that decided that we would just be okay with a summary "Hey, we wanted to make some cash and figured you'd be so anxious to get your Dresden fix that you wouldn't notice our little switcheroo".
So, I'm writing the first review I've ever written in the hopes that someone reads this and recognizes that a large swath of us are simply not going to purchase the next one unless Marsters is reading it.
For those of you looking for another great Urban Fantasy series, look for the Iron Druid Chronicles.
Oh what, you wanted a review of the story? Look at my stars, that's all you need to know, its all an opinion and we all have one. Cheers!
