    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Story

    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.

    Earl Harbinger may be the leader of Monster Hunter International, but he's also got a secret. Nearly a century ago, Earl was cursed to be a werewolf. When Earl receives word that one of his oldest foes, a legendarily vicious werewolf that worked for the KGB, has mysteriously appeared in the remote woods of Michigan, he decides to take care of some unfinished business.

    Story
    Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.
