  • Cold Days: The Dresden Files, Book 14

    • UNABRIDGED (18 hrs and 50 mins)
    • By Jim Butcher
    • Narrated By James Marsters
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    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.

    James Marsters is back.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Molly. Her evolution as a character has come the longest.

    Which character – as performed by James Marsters – was your favorite?


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


    Any additional comments?

    Nicely ties everything together from the pervious 13 books (well in truth mostly from books 1-12).

  • Foxglove Summer: A Rivers of London Novel (Peter Grant, Book 5)

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 45 mins)
    • By Ben Aaronovitch
    • Narrated By Kobna Holdbrook-Smith

    Peter Grant - cop, magical apprentice, and Londoner to the core - is being forced out of his comfort zone and into the English countryside. His latest case involves the disappearance of children in the small village of Herefordshire, and the local police are unwilling to admit there might be a supernatural element involved. Now Peter must deal with them, local river spirits, and the fact that all the shops close by 4 P.M.

    Amazon Customer says: "What a fun ride!"
    "where's the other half?"

    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.

  • Hard Magic: Book I of the Grimnoir Chronicles

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 59 mins)
    • By Larry Correia
    • Narrated By Bronson Pinchot

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    Clinton says: "Not what I thought it was going to be."
    "Lots of action."

    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.

  • Ghost Story: The Dresden Files, Book 13

    • UNABRIDGED (17 hrs and 56 mins)
    • By Jim Butcher
    • Narrated By John Glover
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    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....

    Bill says: "Not the best audio book in the series"
    "Where is James Marsters"

    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.
