    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.

    Would you listen to Cold Days again? Why?

    TOTALLY!!! Probably my favorite book in the series now!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cold Days?

    "Wait, you work for me?"
    "I prefer to think of it as managing your incompetence."


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

    Marsters is a king among orators. He keeps getting better with each year.


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

    Molly... the end... ouch...


    Any additional comments?

    READ IT!!! ... ...why aren't you read it yet?

    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.

    This one started off a lot darker than many of the Dresden books, and that's saying something! I thought it was less jovial, somewhat depressing, and bleak. Yes there were laughs, but not as many belly laughs that you might get from other books... But hells bells, there were some great turn arounds. This book set sooooo many things into motion. The last book did that too, but it also showed us the Dresden world for what it was. The last one ended hard. This one... actually ended on a relatively happy moment, and Harry's character needed that. I think us fans needed that too... But that just means a storm is coming... 5 more books to go!!!!!!

    Mechanic Mercy Thompson has friends in low places - and in dark ones. And now she owes one of them a favor. Since she can shapeshift at will, she agrees to act as some extra muscle when her vampire friend Stefan goes to deliver a message to another of his kind. But this new vampire is hardly ordinary - and neither is the demon inside of him.

    Where does Blood Bound: Mercy Thompson, Book 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm kinda picky, but I've enjoyed them. Haven't been too impressed by the writers abilities, but it has been simple and enjoyable.


    What other book might you compare Blood Bound: Mercy Thompson, Book 2 to and why?

    Erm... A much better written version of Twilight? But twilight sets the bar low. No where near as good as Dresden files, but enjoyable.


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    ... ... Another take on the same old story. It was enjoyable, I did enjoy it, but it was not that complex, there was not very many new ideas


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

    ...no

  • Fuzzy Nation

    Story
    (3336)

    In John Scalzi's re-imagining of H. Beam Piper's 1962 sci-fi classic Little Fuzzy, written with the full cooperation of the Piper Estate, Jack Holloway works alone for reasons he doesnt care to talk about. Hundreds of miles from ZaraCorps headquarters on planet, 178 light-years from the corporations headquarters on Earth, Jack is content as an independent contractor, prospecting and surveying at his own pace. As for his past, thats not up for discussion.

    Samuel Montgomery-Blinn says: "Short, sweet, and satisfying storytelling."
    "Scalzi makes me happy"

    What made the experience of listening to Fuzzy Nation the most enjoyable?

    Scalzi turns a character (who you're first inclination is to hate due to the fact that he's a complete jerk) into a man that you cheer on despite the fact that he's still a complete a-hole. You just can't go wrong with that!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Charlie


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

    Laugh a bunch, not so much cry but made me a little sad


    Any additional comments?

    Awesome sauce John, keep it up!
