    Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day.… Because as Winter Knight to the Queen of Air and Darkness, Harry never knows what the scheming Mab might want him to do. Usually, it’s something awful. He doesn’t know the half of it… Mab has just traded Harry’s skills to pay off one of her debts. And now he must help a group of supernatural villains - led by one of Harry’s most dreaded and despised enemies, Nicodemus Archleone - to break into the highest-security vault in town, so that they can then access the highest-security vault in the Nevernever.

    On the holiday of Wintertide, the New Empire plans to burn the Witch of Melengar and force the Empress into a marriage of their own design. But they didn’t account for Royce and Hadrian finally locating the Heir of Novron—or the pair’s desire to wreak havoc on the New Empire’s carefully crafted scheme.

    They call me the Spider. I'm the most feared assassin in the South -- when I'm not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don't use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride.

    Would you listen to Spider's Bite again? Why?

    Maybe if I was catching up for a new book coming out.


    What about Lauren Fortgang’s performance did you like?

    She did a good job. I probably wouldn't have enjoyed the book if I had read it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not particularly but I definitely wanted to finish it.


    Any additional comments?

    I think the book would have been a lot more enjoyable if the author toned down the foul language. She uses profanity quite frequently and in some cases its just not necessary. I still purchased the second book but I really hope the profanity decreases rather then increases.

  • Middlemarch

    • UNABRIDGED (31 hrs and 48 mins)

    Story

    Middlemarch is a recognized masterpiece that explores the complex social world of 19th century England. It is concerned with the lives of several ordinary people, albeit ones with high social standing. The novel explores the very fabric of Victorian society in the 1800s, showing how various human passions, heroism, egotism, love, and lust, interrelate within this society.

    Francis says: "Such books make reading sacred..."
    "Excellent!"
    Overall

    Beautifully written, beautifully read, beautiful and witty novel! I highly reccommend this to anyone. Elliot's humor is subtle but hilarious and the narration perfectly fits her writing stlye. Very enjoyable!
