    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is Chicago's only openly practicing wizard. He is also dead broke. His vast knowledge and magical skills are unfortunately matched by his talent for making powerful enemies and alienating friends. With little more than his integrity left, he accepts an offer of work from Lt. Karin Murphy of Chicago's Special Investigations Unit. He wants to redeem himself in Murphy's eyes and make enough money to quiet his rumbling stomach.

    This book really shows how useless and a whimp Dresden really is. I was really fed up with his character, so much baggage but I really LOVED James Marsters. His reading of the book is what kept me going.

    It is a great story line but I would like Dresden to be less whimpy and be a bit stronger than what he is. People have stated the 3rd book is where things get better, I'm hoping so because Marsters can only keep my interest for so long if the stories keep showing Dresden to be so useless and a whimp.

    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden has had a rough couple of weeks. As the only openly practicing professional wizard in the Chicago area, he has squared off against a multitude of supernatural bad guys. Harry has won the day against demons, poltergeists, sorcerers, trolls, vampires, werewolves, and even an evil faerie godmother. You might think nothing could spook him. You would be wrong.

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

    The is the best book of the 1st 3 in the series. Dresden, at last, showed what he can do and the power that he actually have. The 1st 2 books showed him in a really useless light but this book broke that mold and showed how powerful he actually is.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Grave Peril?

    When Dresden used the last of his power to call up the ghost from the past, giving them power a avenge themselves.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The part where Dresden called upon


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    A call from a distraught wife, and another from Lt Murphy of the Chicago PD Special Investigation Unit makes Harry believe things are looking up, but they are about to get worse, much worse. Someone is harnessing immense supernatural forces to commit a series of grisly murders. Someone has violated the first law of magic: Thou Shalt Not Kill. Tracking that someone takes Harry into the dangerous underbelly of Chicago, from mobsters.

    Butcher is a good story teller but I do think that he made Dresden to be a bit too useless and too full of baggage. My friend said that Dresden gets better in the later books

    It was one of Eve Dallas’s earliest takedowns, back in her uniform days. A monster named Isaac McQueen had been abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. Thanks to Eve, he wound up where he belonged, removed from civilized society in Rikers. But he’s not behind bars anymore. After his escape, McQueen has two things in mind. One is to take up where he left off, preying on the young and innocent - when necessary, with the help of a female partner all too willing to be manipulated and to aid and abet his crimes.

    Story

    The human relation jokes and the interaction of Dallas with everyone is what makes the In Death series the greatest.

    In this book, Dallas has to interact with people that she didn't really know, one of her biggest "fears". But things seemed to work out well. It was a nice difference to the usual stories and her interactions with her friends.

    When it comes to the holidays, no story brings us back to the true spirit of giving like O. Henry’s classic "The Gift of the Magi". So this year we’ve asked some of your favorite Audible narrators—Audie Award winners Katherine Kellgren, Oliver Wyman, and Jonathan Davis—to bring to life this timeless tale, plus two more of O. Henry’s gems: "The Cop and the Anthem" and "The Last Leaf", in this holiday collection.
