    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.

    The power-hungry High Lord of Kalare has launched a rebellion against the aging First Lord, Gaius Sextus, who with the loyal forces of Alera must fight beside the unlikeliest of allies - the equally contentious High Lord of Aquitaine. Meanwhile, young Tavi of Calderon joins a newly formed legion under an assumed name even as the ruthless Kalare unites with the Canim, bestial enemies of the realm whose vast numbers spell certain doom for Alera.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Cursor's Fury to be better than the print version?

    I think that Kate Reading is a fabulous narrator. She really brings the characters to life with their own voices but doesn't over do it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hard to say who my favorite is. Even the villains of the story have their understandable reasons for doing what they're doing. Nothing is simple as black and white. Though if I had to choose a favorite I'd likely say that it was Max. He's a good man in a hard spot and even his humor and flippant attitude has reasons behind it that are revealed in Cursor's Fury. I like the way he compliments Tavi as well. The strong fury crafter in Max and Tavi's lack of fury crafting but his quick wits and Batman-like ability to turn seemingly any situation to his advantage make for a great team.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Reading – was your favorite?

    Kate Reading has such a great voice and all her characters come to life with voices of their own. But I think my favorite rendition of hers is Odiana. The mad water witch really stands out from all the others and I love the mix of danger that Kate gives her but still a touch of childlike innocence behind it.


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

    The charge Tavi and the Blood Crows against the Carnim surge across the bridge. I reached that part while at work and I actually cheered out loud anyways!


    Any additional comments?

    Great book of a great series! Can't wait to get the next one to see where it all leads. Each book amps up the danger and the threat to not just the characters, but to the realm in which they live.
