James Marsters is back.
Molly. Her evolution as a character has come the longest.
Nicely ties everything together from the pervious 13 books (well in truth mostly from books 1-12).
As usual, @HoldbrooksMyth delivered an outstanding performance. What I had a problem with was the story. The pacing was entirely off, starting off way to slow and ending in a scene that felt more like a mid-book interluded than a cliff-hanging ending. To me it felt like there should be another 10 chapters in to this book.
It was nice however to have a little more explanation of Molly, and some teasers regarding what's in the basement of the Folly.
Great exposition with much focus on character development. Of course, there was no shortage of action either. The world of the Grimnoir is quite rich and well developed with respect to history, politics, magic, society. At the end of the book you were left wanting more, which is what Larry Correia did in his two follow-ups.
While I think the book itself, in terms of content, is what I hoped for, not having James Marsters as the narrator makes the listen very tedious. Although I appreciate the internal monologue of Harry Dresden, Mr. Glover makes it boring as all hell.
