    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....

    Overall

    Jim Butcher has hit his stride with this one. I enjoyed it from the beginning to end. Although I am used to James Marsters, John Glover does a fine job taking the reins.

    It is the cusp of World War I, and all the European powers are arming up. The Austro-Hungarians and Germans have their Clankers, steam-driven iron machines loaded with guns and ammunition. The British Darwinists employ fabricated animals as their weaponry. The Leviathan is a living airship, the most formidable airbeast in the skies of Europe.

    I really enjoyed listening to Alan's reading. Going to get the next book to decide on the story. Has potential, but definitely doesn't stand on its own.

    First setting: an all-male prep school in Arizona, where two sensitive freshmen form a bond based on their interest in magic tricks. Second setting: the labyrinthine house of a weird magician uncle in New England, where the two boys spend a memorable summer being trained in the art of illusion. Or is it real magic? Third setting: an alternate world where dark forces are at play - forces that first show up at the school, but intensify their power the summer.

    So pleased to find one of my top favorite books finally on Audible. The narrator was very good, and the story is Peter's best!

    The demon, known only as "Jakerbok", is a major force of evil then and now. He taunts the listener to "Burn this audiobook" throughout this satanically autobiographical monologue, for he has embedded his very self inside each word....as a long-dormant vehicle for the dark forces to finally conquer all things good and holy in this world.

    Amanda says: "Great but a little nagging.."
    "We get this instead of Abarat 3?"
    Overall

    Very disappointed in the book, but more so that Clive Barker wasted time he could have been working on Abarat 3 for this dribble.

    Listen to the demon--burn the book.
