The narrator was superb, she really brought the story alive. The premise is interesting, and I would love to see how the rest of the tale goes. Unfortunately audible doesn't have the rest of the books.
Deadhouse gates was much more fun to listen to, thanks to the grounding in the universe lent by Gardens of the Moon. Then characters and plot lines continue right on, and the scope of the series really becomes clear. I loved every second!
Ralph Lister's narration was great, it takes some getting used to, the first book was hard to get adjusted to his narration style. But once you do, it's a pleasure to listen to.
I really hope audible adds the remaining books quickly!
I discovered the Dresden Files by first reading Codex Alera, and not the other way around like most people seem to. I am a few books into the Files, and looking back Storm Front is a great introduction to the setting, and Dresden and Co.
Reading some of the other reviews I have seen some negativity towards James Marsters' narration, I found it to be great. Marsters' voice and style fits Dresden's personality very well in my opinion.
This is my first review, I decided to participate in the process simply because so many of my purchases are driven by the reviews of my fellow listeners.
Theft of Swords is excellent, a genuinely compelling tale with very rich characters.
As the first book of the trilogy, it very ably sets up the greater story.
The narration was excellent, and enhanced the tale instead of detracting from it. Royce and Hadrian are a memorable pair. I don't really know how else to go on without digressing into spoilers, but the character development over the series as a whole is wonderful. I always am drawn to series over stand-alone novels for this very reason.
It was edge of the seat listening, and length of the story (which attracts me) flew by.
