Right in line with some of the top. Newbern's reading reminded me a lot of James Marster's Dresden Files narration, with both humor and seriousness when needed. A great new addition to the Urban Fantasy genre.
The Countess of Cold Hands, I really liked how the demoness filled the almost classic jaded female companion to Bobby Dollars gumshoe.
Newbern brought a depth to the characters that while present in the book, really popped out in his narration.
While I laughed out loud several times during the book, my most extreme reaction came from the sex scenes which were quite hot.
This series is now on my must read list and I will be checking out more narrations by George Newbern in the future. I was very impressed.
My single favorite audio book to this point.
First and foremost this is a worthy successor to changes. Not that ghost story did not have its moments but the sheer scope and brilliance of this work compares to Changes as Butchers best. It is tough to compare Cold Days to another author, as Jim Butcher is currently the definitive Urban Fantasy in the world today.
Everything, I have already laughed out loud numerous times. His willingness to do voices for the dew drop fairies were of particular note.
Yes, several but hard to describe without spoilers.
I have finished the book and am about 10 hours into the audio book and felt I had enough of a base to give the audio book a review. Put simply this is the best audio book released this year and among my favorites of all time. I would recommend to anyone.
