    The Chelsea Flower Show - hardly the most exciting or dangerous event in the calendar, or so Doctor thinks. But this is Chelsea 426, a city-sized future colony floating on the clouds of Saturn, and the flowers are much more than they seem. As the Doctor investigates, a familiar foe arrives, and the stakes suddenly get much higher. The Sontarans have plans of their own, and they're not here to arrange flowers.

    What did you love best about Doctor Who: The Taking of Chelsea 426?

    First, let me say that this is the first Dr. Who audiobook I've listened to that wasn't narrated by David Tennet. However, Christopher Ryan does such a fabulous job of capturing the spirit of the 10th Doctor that it didn't matter. I actually enjoyed it more because his other voices and regular narration were fantastic! If you're a 10th doctor fan, this is a great listen. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day.… Because as Winter Knight to the Queen of Air and Darkness, Harry never knows what the scheming Mab might want him to do. Usually, it’s something awful. He doesn’t know the half of it… Mab has just traded Harry’s skills to pay off one of her debts. And now he must help a group of supernatural villains - led by one of Harry’s most dreaded and despised enemies, Nicodemus Archleone - to break into the highest-security vault in town, so that they can then access the highest-security vault in the Nevernever.

    D says: "Hold onto your staff; Harry’s back."
    "One of my favorite Dresden Novels so far"

    If you could sum up Skin Game in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting twisty plot


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Michael, Since his appearance in the series, he's always given Harry an anchor point upon which to pivot, reminding him that goodness, riteousness and religion are not the same.


    What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

    James brings a continuity and grace to his reading. His inflections and characterizations draws you into the story and during high points, I almost cheered out loud.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It definitely made me laugh out loud at times, cheer for the hero at others, and smile widely.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I didn't have to wait so long between Dresden novels. I really enjoy the series.
