    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.

    Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day.… Because as Winter Knight to the Queen of Air and Darkness, Harry never knows what the scheming Mab might want him to do. Usually, it’s something awful. He doesn’t know the half of it… Mab has just traded Harry’s skills to pay off one of her debts. And now he must help a group of supernatural villains - led by one of Harry’s most dreaded and despised enemies, Nicodemus Archleone - to break into the highest-security vault in town, so that they can then access the highest-security vault in the Nevernever.

    The book was well worth the wait (not that I wanted to wait 18 months, but...)
    It's right up there with Grave Peril and White Nights. The story telling is consistent and James Marsters once again gives a superb performance.
    Definitely worth the money.

    As opposing forces maneuver for the final titanic showdown, an army of barbaric wildlings arrives from the outermost line of civilization. In their vanguard is a horde of mythical Others, a supernatural army of the living dead whose animated corpses are unstoppable. As the future of the land hangs in the balance, no one will rest until the Seven Kingdoms have exploded in a veritable storm of swords.

    What made the experience of listening to A Storm of Swords the most enjoyable?

    The characters, the style, the story, the scenes, the adventure, the descriptions, etc.


    What other book might you compare A Storm of Swords to and why?

    I love the books of Bernard Cornwell, so anything in his historical novels - especially the ones about King Alfred the Great - would fit the bill. The only difference it this is mythical vs. historical.


    What about Roy Dotrice’s performance did you like?

    The consistancy of the characters. There are so many of them and he handles them all well.


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

    there were times when it made me scream, but since I don't want to give anything away, I'll leave it at that.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth a credit!

    Kayla Maxwell is eager to shed her slasher-flick bimbo image - and she plans to do just that in her new role on daytime's most popular soap. With a chance to showcase her dramatic range, Kayla will be able to wash away the lingering betrayal and public humiliation left by her controlling, philandering ex-boyfriend. Sean Barrett, the son of an influential, award-winning actor, is the hottest soap star in the country. Paired on-screen with the talented and beautiful Kayla Maxwell, Sean is determined to keep her at arm's length, burned before by fame-seeking actresses who had no qualms about using him to get to his famous father.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story - one that didn't feel the need to keep repeating itself as well as a reader that could do better accents. Hard to distinguish between characters by voice alone.


    What was most disappointing about Alison Packard’s story?

    The constant repetition of the storyline. If you lost your place in listening to it, you couldn't pick it back up because several parts sounded the same. Writer could have used a thesaurus.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She didn't differ her speaking tones. She did bad accents.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Love in the Afternoon?

    There were too many to count.


    Any additional comments?

    Yuck! Even at free it was overpriced!
