    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.

    Where does Cold Days rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Cold Days ranks in the top 5% of all the audiobooks I have listened to so far. Better than Jack Campbell, Orson Scott and the rest. Keep James Marsters as the Narrator. Marsters is the cream of the crop for narrators.


    What other book might you compare Cold Days to and why?

    Nope, I usually wouldn't read something like this but the television show caught my interest and then when they canceled I read all the book 1 through 11 in like 2 months and then.....


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

    I like the internal dialogue of Dresden but I think the Cat was good....


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Many moments got me laughing, shocked, and on the tip of my seat wondering...


    Any additional comments?

    Keep on writing this series Mr. Butcher and lets keep James Marsters...I would even pay more for Marsters like $10.00 more if I had a choice between to narrators.

    For nearly 2,000 years, only one Druid has walked the Earth - Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’ apprentice, Granuaile, is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do.

    Audie Murphy was a desperately poor eighteen-year-old orphan when he joined the Army, nineteen when he first saw a buddy die from an enemy bullet and an enemy die from one of his own. By VE day, he had killed at least 240 Germans, had single-handedly destroyed a German tank in one battle and held off six tanks in another, and had become the most decorated soldier in American history, winning every medal his country offered, including the Congressional Medal of Honor.

    Redefining the classic essay, this modern edition of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s most famous work, Self-Reliance, includes self-reflections from both historical and contemporary luminaries. With quotes from the likes of Henry Ford and Helen Keller to modern-day thought leaders like Jesse Dylan, Steve Pressfield, and Milton Glaser, we're reminded of the relevance of Emerson’s powerful words today. Emerson’s words are timeless. Persuasive and convincing, he challenges readers to define their own sense of accomplishment and asks them to measure themselves....

    What didn’t you like about Kurt Andersen and Joyce Bean ’s performance?

    Rambling


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Self-Reliance?

    I would quit my job as editor and get a better book. This was boring.

    Not another one from Arthur Conan Doyle. This was boring and slow paced. I'm sure that during the time period it was written it was awesome but we have better writers now.


    What didn’t you like about Grahame Stevens’s performance?

    British thing


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Hound of the Baskervilles?

    Agent Franks of the U.S. Monster Control Bureau is a man of many parts - parts from other people, that is. Franks is nearly seven feet tall and all muscle. He's nearly indestructible. Plus he’s animated by a powerful alchemical substance and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity itself. Good thing he’s on our side. More or less.

    I would consider the audio edition of Monster Hunter Nemesis to be better than the print version. The narrator makes the story come alive. The writing is awesome and it has both an action packed plot, and character development that you can see develop from other books in this series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well, obviously we switch in this book so I don't have favorites but it is interesting to see a different point of view.


    What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

    Hands down awesome


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I would see this movie....it would be violent!

    Thomas knows that Wicked can't be trusted, but they say the time for lies is over, that they've collected all they can from the Trials and now must rely on the Gladers, with full memories restored, to help them with their ultimate mission. It's up to the Gladers to complete the blueprint for the cure to the Flare with a final voluntary test. What Wicked doesn't know is that something's happened that no Trial or Variable could have foreseen. Thomas has remembered far more than they think. And he knows that he can't believe a word of what Wicked says. The time for lies is over.

    The most disappointing part of the story is how it ended. I mean...it ended but it was obvious that we would not discover anything more.

    Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end. No more puzzles. No more variables. And no more running. Thomas was sure that escape meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one really knew what sort of life they were going back to. In the Maze, life was easy... until Teresa triggered the end. In the world outside the Maze, however, the end was triggered long ago. Burned by sun flares and baked by a new, brutal climate, the earth is a wasteland....

    If you’ve listened to books by James Dashner before, how does this one compare?

    This book narration is better than the last.


    Have you listened to any of Mark Deakins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I think Mark Deakins's performances are all good. He does well when transitioning from male and female characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I like to listen to it in multiple sittings.
