    Adam Winters has enough responsibility as the new head of the local Ghost Hunter Guild without being saddled with the family curse. He’s convinced his recent nightmares and hallucinations will lead to him becoming a psychic rogue — unless he can find a stolen relic and a woman who can read dreamlight. andMarlowe Jones rides into his life on a motorcycle and with a dust bunny at her side. Though a descendant of the rival Arcane family, she’s just what Adam needs.

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Ryan says: "Enjoyable, but a lot of setup"
    "Love the story but this is confusing"

    If you could sum up A Dance with Dragons in three words, what would they be?

    Confusing.....I just finished up A Feast for Crows and started listening to A Dance with Dragons...there is a chapter that is repeating from the previous book....I don't understand that.


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

    Roy Dotrice doesn't have enough voices for all of the characters in these books...especially the female voices. They all sound like old crones.

    A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

    Alisha says: "Good listen, but what's up with the chapter set up"
    "Great Story.....awful narration."

    Where does A Clash of Kings rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As a story, this is wonderful. I love and love to hate the characters.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator cannot do voices..every man sounds like a old geezer and the women never sound like women....


    Any additional comments?

    If the story was not so wonderful, I would not tolerate these books. The narrator cannot remember how to pronounce a name....the same characters get a different name in (well at least in the way it is pronounced) in each book. That is really sad.

    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.

    Very high in my list of favorites


    What did you like best about this story?

    Harry was back to being Harry....loved his interactions with Thomas.


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

    His performance and voices for all of the characters are so distinctive and rich.

    I laughed out loud many time and yes,,,I cried a bit too.

    No one's tried to kill Harry Dresden for almost an entire year, and his life finally seems to be calming down. For once, the future looks fairly bright. But the past casts one hell of a long shadow.

    Carrie says: "I want more of Harry!"
    "Love it as usual"
    Overall

    James Marsters is the absolute best narrator. Love the stories. They keep me wanting much more. We have listened to all the books and just can't wait to start the next one. This book leaves lots of unanswered questions and concerns for those of us who have become invested in the characters. Hope Jim Butcher keeps Harry casting magic for many more adventures.
