    Nora is more certain than ever that she is in love with Patch. Fallen Angel or no, he is the one for her. Her heritage and destiny may mean that they will always be enemies, but there is no turning her back on him. And yet their biggest challenge lies ahead. Can their love survive a seemingly insurmountable divide? The lines are drawn, but it's unclear which sides have been taken. And in the end, will there be enough trust left to rebuild what has been broken?

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I am a big fan of this series and could not wait for the final book. While the story nicely wraps up the journey that Patch and Nora have traveled throughout the series, I was somewhat disappointed by the 2nd half of this book. I think that performance by the narrator may be to blame for that though.


    What other book might you compare Finale to and why?

    Gates of Paradise by Melissa De La Cruz also is the final book in a series that follows 2 characters that overcome an sacrifice a lot for love.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I will not purchase any other books narrated by Carlin Greer! She seems more concerned about proper pronunciation of the words than about what emotion is required to compel listeners to follow along. There are parts in the story where she makes Nora sound happy when facing situations that fans of this series will know are heartbreaking.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I am an avid reader. I've read over 100 books in the last year and have really enjoyed almost all of the 20+ audio books that I have purchased . With that said, it took me almost 3 months to listen to this entire audio book because every time I would play it, I found myself wishing I would have just gotten the ebook instead of wasting the money on the audio version !

    Story
    (4097)

    The Winter Queen of Faerie has manipulated Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden into accepting a case to solve a murder and stop a war between the courts of Summer and Winter that could have literally earth shattering consequences. His own soul is up for grabs. Dresden must dig deep to discover that at time a willingness to accept a little help from your friends, be they a cub pack of werewolves, old loves in sheep's clothing, or a battalion of pizza loving dewdrop fairies, is a very good thing.

    Where does Summer Knight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 10% and the series is climbing my list as it progresses.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I am a fan of James Marsters as a narrator however I find this seires much more enjoyable if I set the narration speed at 1.5


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Murphy's conversation with Dresden about her ex husband gave new insight into her character.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Good is sometimes hiding in a filthy foul mouthed suit covered by a leather duster!


    Any additional comments?

    Disappointed that Audible has offered for immersion reading reading at $3.99 for the first four books of this series but the price for immersion reading beginning with #5-Death Masks, that price skyrockets to $11.99!
