    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.

    What did you love best about Cold Days?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


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

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I just said it Harry's Back! Thank God!


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    John Taylor is a P.I. with a special talent for finding lost things in the dark and secret center of London known as the Nightside. He's also the reluctant owner of a very special-and dangerous-weapon. Excalibur, the legendary sword. To find out why he was chosen to wield it, John must consult the Last Defenders of Camelot, a group of knights who dwell in a place that some find more frightening than the Nightside. London Proper. It's been years since John's been back-and there are good reasons for that.

    Where does A Hard Day’s Knight rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What other book might you compare A Hard Day’s Knight to and why?

    Dresden Files


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

    Marc Vietor is John Taylor. He does a fantastic job and when I imagine the character it's Marc's voice.


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

    I laughed and smiled my way through the whole book. Its worth it if you don't take yourself too seriously.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a great read.
