If you are a Harry Dresden fan, then this book rocks it! James Marster does his usual wonderful job making the fun and exhausting story come to life!
Love, love, love Emma Galvin! She could make a cereal box interesting, but this time she has had great material written by Veronica Roth. Witty, interesting, and fun, I couldn't stop listening.
This is not the worst book I have ever listened too, but it sure is near the bottom. The story rambles on and on and I never really cared if our hero survived or not. There is a whole secondary story of his friends that never goes anywhere. At first I wasn't sure if it was the performance (the delivery was so flat), but after the first couple of hours it became evident that the writing that was the real problem.
I had read the reviews of others and kept waiting for the story and writing to improve, but it never did. I hate to say anything negative about a book, because I know that a writer pours his heart and soul into the work, but this time I just couldn't keep quiet.
Story is wonderful, but had a hard time getting used to Gigi reading it. I LOVED Margarit and associated her with Rachel... I kinda felt sorry for Gigi. Couldn't some one at least told her how to pronounce the names correctly.
If you love Dresden Files, then this is for you! Kim Harrison has a wonderful imagination and Marguerite Gavin reads this wonderfully! Super easy read.
OK, just like everyone else I love John Marsters as Dresden! They were one and the same, and it took some getting used to John Glover's style. But by the middle of the book, I was hooked on the story and John Glover does do a very interesting and engaging reading. I was kinda expecting to hate it, but ended up liking this story as much as the last few. Of course having said that, I hope that John Marsters is available for the next one!
