    When Gregor falls through a grate in the laundry room of his apartment building, he hurtles into the dark Underland, where spiders, rats, and cockroaches coexist uneasily with humans. This world is on the brink of war, and Gregor's arrival is no accident. A prophecy foretells that Gregor has a role to play in the Underland's uncertain future. Gregor wants no part of it, until he realizes it's the only way to solve the mystery of his father's disappearance.

    Awesome series! One of the best of the series. This is my 6th or 7th time listening to this book. It's one of my all-time favorites.
    Marsters is one of the best performers out there.

    In Wyoming, a little girl reads people’s darkest secrets. In New York, a man sensing patterns in the stock market racks up $300 billion. In Chicago, a woman can go invisible. They’re called "brilliants," and since 1980, one percent of people have been born this way. Nick Cooper is among them; a federal agent, Cooper has gifts rendering him exceptional at hunting terrorists. His latest target may be the most dangerous man alive, a brilliant drenched in blood and intent on provoking civil war. But to catch him, Cooper will have to violate everything he believes in.

    Charles says: "Slow to Start"
    "Good story, but stop with the Liberal bias."

    Story was good. A little too easy to see what was coming. Would've been nice if he had kept politics out of it, or made it seem less biased.

    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....

    Bill says: "Not the best audio book in the series"
    "Another great Dresden book."
    Overall

    Get over the narrator change. It's done. John Glover does a fine job. Not as good as Marsters, but give him a break. It's not like they pulled some nobody off the streets. It's John Glover! The voices aren't as distinguishable, but he puts a lot of feeling in to his performance. After about an hour it was all just part of the story. If Jim Butcher is happy with the performance, so am I.

    Now on to the really important part of the review.

    The book is awesome! Another great journey. It's classic Dresden. There is plenty of right and wrong internal conversation. The usual philosophy monologues(which I love). Plenty of friends. And a lot of Kicking Butt. I think I'm going to listen to it again.
