    To seize the moon from foreign powers--and keep his men alive - Sergeant Ethan Stark must choose which orders to obey - and which to ignore.

    Greg says: "Heavy-handed"
    "Excellent listen"
    Overall

    I had no major complaints about the book or its presentation. While not quite up to the level of the Lost Fleet series, the book is fast paced and keeps the listener interested in the story. The author does a very good job of setting the listener within the main character's perspective and allowing us to see how his decisions are shaped through respect, loyalty, and the willingness to finally question absurd orders.

    I'm watching weekly for Audible to include the final two books in this series!

    Story

    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.

    Ethan M. says: "Thwarts Every Expectation - In a Good Way"
    "Good story, good narrator."

    Would you listen to Cold Days again? Why?

    I would listen to it again if I started the series from scratch. And I will, someday. But I will wait for the entire arc to finish before I do. Years down the road??? I hope not.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is *almost* a reboot of the series. As has been seen in the earlier books, the changes here will carry on to future books. The tone is more gray and thus it has you thinking through motives, how YOU would have solved things, and in general, it involves your cerebellum and engrosses you in the story.


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

    I woulda if I coulda.


    Any additional comments?

    It is a good story and the narration gives the characters better personality than if I had sounded their voices out in my head. That is why I like Audible and good voice actors.
