A different story.
My first Heinlein book, thought he was a master of sci-fi but it was all nudity, incest, wife swapping etc. Where's the sci-fi!! He is an award winner so maybe I just don't get it, but I still don't know the "number of the beast"!
They did the best they could with what they had to work with.
All but the first.
I like the Dresden books, but there was something missing in this one. There was a lot of fluff just to find out Dresden was fooled into becoming the Winter Knight and couldn't get out of it. I guess it will be interesting to see were this goes.
Ok, a little sex in your Sci-Fi can be a good thing but unfortunately this is another series that apparently makes it a co-star. Surprisingly the fallen angel aspect of story is quite good but unfortunately about 30% of the story is really just soft porn. Actually not just soft porn but porn written by an adolescent who still dreams of Disney and princes. A 21 minute sex scene (yes I timed it) where the rich man and the star hooker have their first sex is almost nauseating (trust me, worse than dime store bad) and unbelievable. There are several of these scenes I just ended up fast forwarding through. I try to be a little forgiving with my books but this one just didn't do it for me, I would classify this "romance" and not "fiction". Glad it was on sale but won't be listening to the rest of the series. NOW FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO LOVE "Oh his rippling muscles and amazing good looks and incredible-only-cares-about-me-being-satisified sex (in detail) even though he's rich and I'm just a divorced hooker with a son and happily ever after - yada yada yada" and don't really care about Fallen Angels, this book is for you! Get up off the couch, turn off the TV and put down the Chocolate Chip Mint ice cream and do the download! Me, I'll wait for the next Presidents' Vampire. Thanks.
