    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.

A key member of the Order - an elite group of warriors charged with protecting both mortals and vampires - Nathan executes each mission with flawless precision and a total lack of mercy.

    I did not like the narration. The portrayal of the male voices was pretty bad. I had forgotten how much Adrian has deviated from books 1 - 10, even though I did read the 11th. This was all just too disjointed. Wish I hadn't bothered.

    Body and soul. The song. That's what London constable and sorcerer's apprentice Peter Grant first notices when he examines the corpse of Cyrus Wilkins, part-time jazz drummer and full-time accountant, who dropped dead of a heart attack while playing a gig at Soho's 606 Club. The notes of the old jazz standard are rising from the body - a sure sign that something about the man's death was not at all natural but instead supernatural.

    This book continued the story from Cast in Peril. It had some surprising turns, and interesting developments. I waited a year for the continuation from Peril, and it was well worth each day's wait. Great story. Cannot wait for the next one!

    Wolf shifter Jaime Farrow has a secret. And no one - not her Alpha, not her best friend, and most definitely not gorgeous Dante Garcea - can know the truth. She thinks keeping her little “problem” under wraps from Dante won’t be so tough; after all, he’s ignored her for years, despite her best attempts at flirtation. But though Jaime is determined to face her problem alone, nothing can stop her from wanting him.... As Beta, Dante is responsible for the protection and safety of his entire pack. If a wolf is hiding something that could endanger the others, it’s his business to know about it....

    Story

    I was looking forward to this book, but was disappointed with the very predictable story line. It seems like the author copy/pasted the sex scenes from the first book to the second. They aren't great the first time, but downright boring the second. I fast-forwarded through them. The dialogue is a bit rediculous and stilted. Overall, I just wish I hadn't wasted a credit on it. If you've read the first book - you've read the second one as well. Just switch out names. I won't get the third.

    Originally I skipped this book based on reviews, but I disagree with the poor ratings. I tried to go to book 3 but felt the gap too much so went back and got this one. It was a good story and definitely set up book 3.

    Carol says: "Horrible Narration Take 2"
    "narrator ruins it"
    Overall

    I have listened to all the previous books in this series in order, and they are all performed by a different narrator. With the change in narrators for this latest book, the quality went down significantly. The most aggravating thing is that she doesn't pronounce some words correctly. She says "lee" lines instead of "lay" lines (spelled lei) and for the character Takata, says it as Ta-Ka-Ta instead of Ta-kat-a.
    If I hadn't heard the first 4 or 5 books before this one, I'm sure it wouldn't have mattered. But I was so distracted by the constant mispronunciations, that it really detracted from the whole experience. They need to go back to the orginal narrator. She was MUCH better in every way.
