    Story
    (4922)

    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.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Cold Days the most enjoyable?

    Hearing the Characters as the voices should sound. All the respect to John Glover, he did a fantastic job. But after 12 books with James Marsters it was like a cold unpleasant shower hearing Mr. Glover's rendition during Ghost Story. I'm very happy that James Marsters is back.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I guess I'm most shocked at the arc that Mab took during the story. She's still not exactly a sympathetic character, but we find out that there is a whole heckuva lot more about her than just "mean powerful woman obsessed with Harry". She has much more depth now in my mind. I also have to mention Molly. I've always loved the relationship Harry and Molly have developed and now I'm super excited to see where it goes from here. But holy cow... can you even imagine what Charity is going to say?


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

    I read the hardcover first. After listening to James read 12 books to me the voices are indelibly stuck in my head. It's like a comfy house coat and big fluffy slippers when James reads Harry. It's just not right without him.


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

    Harry's Back! And Hell has frozen over!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm glad Mr. Butcher brought James Marsters back. And I'm also glad he is more efficient than some other Fantasy Novelists out there (*cough* G.R.R. Martin *cough*). Even so, I crave to find another Modern Urban Fantasy that approaches the enjoyment level the Dresden Files have always given me. And I am already eagerly looking forward to book 15! I hope the series never ends! Long Live Harry Dresden!

    Story

    Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Lost Gate the most enjoyable?

    There was a comfortable familiarity to it because of the voice actors. I've put many enjoyable hours into the Ender audiobooks and these two voices were the same actors (or were very similar - I have not checked the names).


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lost Gate?

    The scene in the National Library (Is that what it's called?). I really enjoyed the parts where he was discovering new capabilities.


    What does Stefan Rudnicki and Emily Janice Card bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Switching voices makes a very nice way to transition to different characters. The voice actors are good at what they do and the transitions were smooth and because of the different gender/actor much more obvious than would otherwise be.


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

    The boy who wasn't there...


    Any additional comments?

    The "magic system" is quite unique (in my experience). And it was a very nice change. I've read a lot of fantasy and it was nice feeling like I was discovering something new again. I'm not sure I've felt that way about a new fantasy novel in a very long time. I eagerly await the next installment in the series.
