    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes and I have because the whole series is fantastic. I love how the new books pull in elements from the previous ones and tie it all together. It is like watching a tv series where each episode is just a part of the bigger picture.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the end and I wont say more then that because I don't want to risk spoilers.


    Any additional comments?

    I both read the book and now I am listening to it. Just can't get enough. I like to listen to it after I read the books because in my excitement to see what comes next, I find that I skim or speed read parts. This way, I get the best of both worlds and I don't have to put it down to do something else.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    What did you love best about A Discovery of Witches?

    I love paranormal stories whether they are romance or mystery. This series/triology has both.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are engaging.


    What does Jennifer Ikeda bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love the narrator. I think that she did a very nice job on the accents.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    how they fight for each other against the odds.


    Any additional comments?

    In the beginning, the story was a bit slow but as it continued it got more interesting. I didn't want to push stop. I am looking forward to listening to book 2 although if I would have know it was a triology ahead of time,(didn't look into it), I may have waited until the whole thing was out so I could go from one book to the next with out the wait. I may have to buy a hardcover to have around the house.
