    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.

    First, I was so happy to hear James' voice as Harry again! Second, the story was fantastic. I wanted to hurry up and listen, but I also didn't want it to end. Can't wait for the next book!

    First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic, an intellectual and artistic benchmark from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman. Now discover the mystery and magic of American Gods in this 10th anniversary edition. Newly updated and expanded with the author's preferred text, this commemorative volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece by the one, the only, Neil Gaiman.

    Story

    I'm new to Gaiman's work. I've read Neverwhere, and now I've listened to American Gods. I liked Neverwhere, but I wasn't sure I loved it. But I loved American Gods. The storytelling language is vivid and colorful, and the characters are interesting. I would love to get to know them all better. I liked the full cast production, the voices for the characters helped the flow of the book. And hearing Mr Gaiman's voice himself doing the "Coming to America" stories along the way was a delight. Highly recommend.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Story

    I LOVED this book. Luke Daniels is great, and the story is fun and entertaining. It's not heavy literature, it's a light, fun ride. Some of the plot points were a little too contrived and convenient, but it's still and entertaining listen. The voices that Luke Daniels does are perfect. I can't wait to listen to more of this series!

    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....

    Story

    I don't usually write reviews, but I felt like I had to for this book. I liked the story, I really did. But it was hard to listen to when I'd been so accustomed to James Marters' voice for so many books. I'm glad to see that they brought him back for the next book in the series. I already have that one on pre-order.

    John Glover wasn't bad, he was actually pretty good. And I'd be willing to listen to other books narrated by him, but it just wasn't the same without James' unique inflections. It was a distraction from what is actually a pretty good storyline.

    So, I guess my recommendation is to listen for at least a few chapters to get used to John's voice, and get into the story, and know that things will go back to normal on the next book.
