Harry dresden falls into a good stride in this book. He's funny, irreverent, smart, and scrappy. He does his best magic dressed only in boxer shorts with duckies on them. Bob is funny and smart. Michael is sturdy and lovable. Murphy is good peeps. And the villains are formidable as villains should be. The author over-likes the word "smote" near the end, but I like that word too, so I didn't mind so much. A good listen.
Yet another good Dresden story. I really can't complain. There are a couple of errors that Marsters makes, but that's just how things go with some audiobooks.
James Marsters is one truly gifted narrator! Listening to him is like seeing the novel unfold before you. I never get bored!
The book itself is wonderful! I've been loving the series so far and this one does not disappoint! Exciting and darkly humorous!
I am really enjoying this series easy listening and interesting characters and plots. I started from book 1 and each one gets better.
New to the dresden files I ended up buying the entire series...I just couldn't help myself! James Marsters does an incredible job and it is great to listen in my car when I can't read it on my own! Great for long rides or quiet evenings! Cannot wait for next book!

Maybe... There is a lot of junk to slink through.
The idea of the character Michael is very interesting to me. I would have liked to see the novel focus in on his character and the relationship with the main protagonist. The least interesting bit is practically every bit featuring vampires and a continuous need to pause and describe exactly how every female character's clothing clings to her breasts.
The opening scene is the best.
Meh... I just don't really enjoy these books. I'm not sure why... or maybe I am. The characters are all very predictable, not fleshed out, and completely stereotyped. I think I might be done with Dresden.
If you like these novels, you might like this one. For me its just becoming repetitive.
