The story was a standard revenge story. The writing style was pretty juvenile, though. There were elements of the story that didn't add anything. I was looking for a good series to follow, but I don't think this one is it.
This was such a good story in this series. I wasn't quite sure which way it was going to go. Dead is dead, right? So, there was that little bit of contrivance to keep Dresden in the land of the living, but we love Dresden and want to keep enjoying his crazy life.
It's interesting how much Dresden has matured over the last few books. He's always been an old-fashioned chivalrous guy, but having a daughter has really had an impact on him. He's become more of a "big-picture" guy. It will be so interesting (and entertaining) to see how Maggie influences him and becomes part of these stories. And now Molly's story will become more than tangential to Dresden's. Sad for Molly, but a great plot twist.
So much happened in this book. And it was good to have James Marsters back. He does a great job of bringing Dresden to live and involving the reader in the story.
I downloaded this without reading reviews or noticing the narrator had changed. It's Dresden and James Marsters is the voice of Dresden. I'm sure the story will be the same Dresden, but the change in narrator will be pretty distracting. What was Penguin thinking? I'd waited this long for the book; I'd have waited for James Marsters. Had I looked and listened to the preview, I'd have bought the book.
