    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is Chicago's only openly practicing wizard. He is also dead broke. His vast knowledge and magical skills are unfortunately matched by his talent for making powerful enemies and alienating friends. With little more than his integrity left, he accepts an offer of work from Lt. Karin Murphy of Chicago's Special Investigations Unit. He wants to redeem himself in Murphy's eyes and make enough money to quiet his rumbling stomach.

    Story

    I like this series of fantasy novels, the hero is likable, the scenarios dangerous, exciting. Sometimes the "just in time" and "everything that happens is about me" plot lines gets to be too much though.

    The reading is fantastic. Marsters really gets you into the characters perfectly.

    I do wish the women in the story could remain clothed more often. For some reason they are always taking off their tops, which I understand can be appealing if you are an adolescent boy.

    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.

    The best one yet. Doom and foreboding and hope all bundled into a great continuation. Forget Ghost Story, it was a bad dream.

    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

    Without James Marsters, there is no good reason to listen to this story. This narrator has the most annoying voice, Harry's sarcasm completely falls flat. It's annoying. Is Marsters coming back? If not, I guess I'll just buy the next book and read it myself to hear Marster's voices (Bob, Murphy, Leah) in my head! So disappointing.

    Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden has had a rough couple of weeks. As the only openly practicing professional wizard in the Chicago area, he has squared off against a multitude of supernatural bad guys. Harry has won the day against demons, poltergeists, sorcerers, trolls, vampires, werewolves, and even an evil faerie godmother. You might think nothing could spook him. You would be wrong.

    Story

    Unfortunately the story about the wizard/private eye in Chicago is losing ground to over the top, just in the nick of time, somehow I'm not dead yet implausibility that never seems to end. The best thing about the character and the story was that, just maybe, he COULD in fact control energy and nature with his will, concentration, knowledge. The godmother, vampires, demons, ghosts: can't you just pick one and streamline it a little? And it goes on and on from one dire death defying sequence to another with no realistic consequences for any of the main characters. Too bad, I really liked the first two books.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Story

    Fast paced humor, hilarious anecdotes, interesting insights into her place in comedy and media and the role of women in just about everything.
