    For a 2,000-year-old Druid, Atticus O’Sullivan is a pretty fast runner. Good thing, because he’s being chased by not one but two goddesses of the hunt - Artemis and Diana - for messing with one of their own. Dodging their slings and arrows, Atticus, Granuaile, and his wolfhound Oberon are making a mad dash across modern-day Europe to seek help from a friend of the Tuatha Dé Danann. His usual magical option of shifting planes is blocked, so instead of playing hide-and-seek, the game plan is...run like hell.

    What did you love best about Hunted?

    Now Hurry up with the next installment Mr. Hearne! All in all, this is exacitly the kind of writing I've come to expect from this author. Again and again he brings together all of the elements I love into his stories. Deep characters, interesting plots and well researched mythology.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I'd have to say my favorite character is up for a three way tie. I love Atticus, Granuwel, and Oberon. They are all so well written that its just too hard to have to choose just one.


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

    I have to say I teared up a little both times a major character bit the dust. No spoilers though.

    Ever since Martin Banks and his fellow computer geeks discovered that reality is just a computer program to be happily hacked, they've been jaunting back and forth through time, posing as medieval wizards and having the epic adventures that other nerds can only dream of having. But even in their wildest fantasies, they never expected to end up at the mercy of the former apprentice whom they sent to prison for gross misuse of magic and all-around evil behavior.

    I have some issues with how everything works in the universe, but it sure makes for some interesting story telling. I enjoyed this book almost as much as the first two books, and look forward to further stories from the author about the Wizards of Lead church.

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

Armed with survivalist tactics, Morgan's crew, alongside their new friends from the recently-liberated DHS camp, have worked together to build a sustainable community. But not all situations can be prepared for. When a massive wildfire threatens their very existence, they must decide: fight or flight?

    Story

    The last few books were a little slow for my taste, more story building and background, tieing up loose ends of the first portion of the series. This book seemed to get back to a flow more like what the first 3 books had, which I prefered. either way, I love the series and I think this gets back to the format I love, and sets up for quite a few interesting situations for the next book. I look forward to it.

    Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day.… Because as Winter Knight to the Queen of Air and Darkness, Harry never knows what the scheming Mab might want him to do. Usually, it’s something awful. He doesn’t know the half of it… Mab has just traded Harry’s skills to pay off one of her debts. And now he must help a group of supernatural villains - led by one of Harry’s most dreaded and despised enemies, Nicodemus Archleone - to break into the highest-security vault in town, so that they can then access the highest-security vault in the Nevernever.

    Would you listen to Skin Game again? Why?

    Yes, and there is no "would". I will listen to it again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harry Motherfudgin' Dresdin.


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

    They tried another narrator once, I highly doubt they will make that mistake again. Marsters is the reason I will buy each book in audiobook form. He makes the experience.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both, multiple times. Messed with my emotions like crazy.

    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?

    I have loved the Dresden files from the beginning and Jim Butcher continues to write amazing stories time and time again. Also James Marsters returning to be the voice of dresden puts the icing on the cake.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Whats not to like? Honestly...


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

    James Marsters is the epitome of all that is Dresden. I'm not sure you could find anyone else to embody the spirit of the character quite like he manages to do.
