    The Warden Morgan has been accused of treason against the Wizards of the White Council - and there's only one, final punishment for that crime. He's on the run, wants his name cleared, and needs someone with a knack for backing the underdog. Someone like Harry Dresden....

    "The reason to get audio books"
    Overall

    I've been a Jim Butcher fan for a long time, and have read the previous Harry Dresden books at least twice each. Listening to James Marster put his immersive spin on these familiar characters adds a completely new and compelling aspect to these books and for me the reason to get these on audio. If Audible can get all the previous Dresden books read by Marster, I would buy them all, and see it as another yet new opportunity to get into the Dresden stories.

    Here, together for the first time, are the shorter works of best-selling author Jim Butcher - a compendium of cases that Harry and his cadre of allies managed to close in record time. The tales range from the deadly serious to the absurdly hilarious.

    If you could sum up Side Jobs in three words, what would they be?

    It was making me dizzy trying to figure out what book I was going to have to buy to just read all of the novella and short story books for this series. This book was perfected and filled in alot of storyline holes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything about Butcher's books are great.


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

    All of them. I was very disappointed when I found out that Marsters did not do Ghost Story. The book was not the same. James Marsters is Harry Dresden.


    If you could take any character from Side Jobs out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    That is too hard a questions to answer. Karrin Murphy is just so cool so if I was forced to make a decision it would be her....of course only after Harry Dresden.


    Any additional comments?

    James Marsters should always be the writer for these books.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    What made the experience of listening to A Discovery of Witches the most enjoyable?

    Jennifer Ikeda did a wonderful job. Her ability to convey each voice and personality of characters made teh book much more interesting than just reading the book.


    Which character – as performed by Jennifer Ikeda – was your favorite?

    Yseabeau (Yes it is spelled that way in the book!)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I have listened to the book three times since September 2011.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the sequel!
