I enjoyed this story for the most part -- it did indeed take a slightly different course than the previous twelve tales in the series, which is a good change of pace. But I do have to agree that the change in narrators was tough to accept, despite the story. I like some of John Glover's other works, but this wasn't one of them, unfortunately. It didn't quite fit in with Marster's previous takes on Harry's character, especially since these are told in the first person.
A more inspired stand-in for James Marsters, if truly necessary, would have been to enlist Paul Blackthorne, the actor who played Harry Dresden in the TV series, to narrate. The two actors sometimes sound quite a lot alike, after all, in delivering Dresden's words, to me at least.
In any event, the publisher has _got_ to get Marsters back.
I just wanted to comment on Wyman's performance -- I did a veritable double-take and a big grin spread across my face as I heard his portrayal of the character Nicolai. He gave one of the two voices for the schizophrenic Russian a distinct impersonated inflection like the actor Christopher Walken -- how oddly appropriate! It gave me a good chuckle.
