This whole series is amazing. Harry is taking a big step off of his usual path in Cold Days but he still remains true to himself. Jim Butcher really knows how to create dire situations and yet lighten the moments with Harry's humor. This is one of those books that you just can't stop listening to.
Welcome back James! James Marsters is truly the master storyteller of The Dresden Files books. He knows all of the characters intimately. Because he does, you too will feel as though you are right there in the story watching up close. Jim Butcher writes great stories and James brings them to life.
I feel that this is one of the best books in this series. Jim Butcher takes some big risks by continuing to take Harry out of his element, but it really pays off with a riveting story that leaves us waiting for the next book.
I have listened to the whole Scott Harvath series and even though this was officially the second book of the series, they finally made it in the unabridged format. This is right on par with the rest of the series as far as the action, intrigue and all around fun listening. I found myself cheering and laughing out loud throughout this book. It is good to get some of the back stories filled in and being made aware of characters that follow in the series. If you want to listen to a great story that will keep you riveted, GET THIS AUDIOBOOK!
Ray does a terrific job bringing the characters to life as well as making you feel the emotions of the moment. He also has a knack for nailing the humor, spot on.
There were several moments that were moving but I am not going to give any spoilers in my review.
Peter Clines knows how to build and deliver an amazing story. This book is a fun, at times terrifying, read right from the beginning.
Riveting, Action, Monsters.
Too many and I am not going to give any spoilers.
I have listened to the entire Monster Hunters International series and Oliver has done a great job bringing the characters to life. It seems that with every book in the series he is more comfortable with the characters and really makes you visualize them as full and complete people. He really brings out the humor and horror of Larry's writing.
The latest riveting story in one of the greatest epic action series of all time.
I don't write many reviews but I feel it would be a travesty if I didn't give accolades to this book. Larry has created a great series with the Monster Hunters International books. The first book in the series took of running with a new look at monsters and how they are kept in check by the hunters of the world. Each book has added many new layers to the MHI team. This book is, again, adding so much more to this series with a well spun web of deceit, action, drama, humor and just flat out one heck of a ride. Oliver does an amazing job as well bringing these characters to life. Larry and Oliver make the most entertaining 16+ hours of listening pleasure that you could possibly have. I can't wait until the next book in the MHI series comes out.
I really enjoyed that Craig did the reading himself, the story had more depth and true emotion because of this. He truly entertains as he regales you with his story. This book was able to show that a guy you enjoy watching on TV is also a genuinely good, down to earth guy that you can admire for being a good person.
Yes I did want to listen to this book in one sitting, and I did. Very entertaining.
If you enjoy watching Craig on TV, I would recommend that you listen to this book. You will feel as if he is your buddy that you have known forever, with all of his mistakes and high points. It is in no way a boring listen.
