    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 listen to Cold Days again? Why?

    It's a fantastic story and a fantastic production.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It takes you places you never expect, and drives the ongoing narrative ahead at breakneck speed. Jim Butcher is really on top of his game.


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

    His performances are nuanced, lyrical, and heartfelt. I've never heard a narrator be so true to the emotions of the words.


    Any additional comments?

    Everything about it felt right.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Story

    Ghost Story is the Dresden book that most depends on the character's past history. All of which have been read and performed (better each time) by James Marsters. When the narrator has told the story of Harry, his history, and his supporting cast entire cast for 12 books, it informs the tone of the performance. In no other book in the series, is this MORE necessary than it is in 'Ghost Story.'
    John Glover is a great actor, I love his movie/tv performances every time out. But while the performance might be good here, it's just off-key and uninformed.
    Given how great James Marsters' performance was in 'Changes' (an Audie nominee no less) and the fact that this story depends so much on the events of in 'Changes), it was wrong not to wait until he could perform this book as well.
    I know there were delays, scheduling problems, and a number of considerations regarding the release date. But it does a disservice to the story, and the listeners to change up the narrator now.
    As I read the book — and try to listen to the audiobook — I keep wondering what might have been.

    Overall

    I love the series, but I especially love the audiobooks. Over the last 12, James Marsters had made it come alive with his narration. All respect to John Glover, but this just sounds WRONG. Changes was one of the best narrated audiobooks I've owned, and this is such a letdown.

    Long ago, Susan Rodriguez was Harry Dresden's lover-until she was attacked by his enemies, leaving her torn between her own humanity and the bloodlust of the vampiric Red Court. Susan then disappeared to South America, where she could fight both her savage gift and those who cursed her with it.Now Arianna Ortega, Duchess of the Red Court, has discovered a secret Susan has long kept, and she plans to use it-against Harry.

    As always, an entertaining and action-packed story from Jim Butcher. It's a major turning point and many ongoing storylines are serviced here. However, I can't get over how great James Marsters' performance is in this book. This is a real emotional showcase for both author and narrator. Don't miss this one.

    From World Sports Headquarters in historic Bristol, Connecticut, comes the audiobook that's more colorful than Dennis Rodman's hair. For the first time, Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick, the tag-team partners of ESPN's award winning Sportscenter, bring what People magazine calls their "Letterman-like loopiness and Koppel-esque smarts" to listeners everywhere in THE BIG SHOW.

    Carlo says: "A fun listen from two guys having a lot of fun"

    Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann made SportsCenter what it is today. If you want the behind-the-scenes of the beginning of an iconic program this is it. Plus, you get to hear some of the best commentary about sports, journalism, and broadcasting from guys who are willing bare all. These two are magic together. Funny and informative.
