Butcher does a great job of reinventing Harry while throwing a lot of great twists that had me screaming - what?! He also had me laughing out loud, something his last book didn't do as well. I still loved it as a fan of the series but felt a little let down. Cold Days made up for it all. I'm back in love with Harry.
Harry of course was the best character. His reunions with the gang from his brother to his apprentice made me as a fan tear up, cheer and laugh.
Yes, thank God they got James Marsters back on the Dresden Files audiobooks. He is the voice of Harry Dresden and one of the let downs of the last audiobook was his absence. The hole was obvious, big and insurmountable. Those shoes just can't be filled - sorry! However his return in Cold Days was fantastic.
I just said it Harry's Back! Thank God!
This is well worth the listen if you're a fan of the series and if you want to be a fan I'd start with Storm Front, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to try Cold Days.
The entire Nightside series is well worth the listen especially if you like the Dresden Files. But a Hard Day's Knight is a fun trip for the series into the absurd and the weird. John Taylor stretches his legs as the new Walker and King Author gets to stretch his legs from the dead - it's pleasurable read for fans of the world of Camelot.
Marc Vietor is John Taylor. He does a fantastic job and when I imagine the character it's Marc's voice.
I laughed and smiled my way through the whole book. Its worth it if you don't take yourself too seriously.
It's a great read.
