    Story
    "Grave Peril"
    What made the experience of listening to Grave Peril the most enjoyable?

    Aside from the amazing story, hilarious writing and unforgettable character, James Marsters is one of the best audio book narrators I have come across.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Seminal in works of Urban Fantasy and my first introduction onto the genre however the story was really interesting and engaging, I really love the mixture of fantasy and mystery set in a contemporary setting.


    What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

    Second only to Jim Dale in stellar voice acting


    Any additional comments?

    A must read for Fantasy goers of all kinds as well as anyone else looking to read outside their comfort zone and explore something really amazing

    Story
    "Whispered murmers"
    What would have made Grave Peril better?

    Someone to read above a whisper.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Have someone else do it. I don't listen to books in a absolutely silent environment, which you need to do to hear all of this very poor performance. I had to strain to hear a lot of this story, turning the volume to full, only to be blasted when the reader briefly switched to a normal tone. This was not an enjoyable listen.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    May have been enjoyable if read by someone else.

    "It Just Got Real"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I'm partial to Bob, though Michael was surprisingly likeable despite his hard-core Christianity. Points to both the author and the reader for making him such a deep character.

    "Excellent Series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you like the Dresden books then you will love the audio books. James Marsters is a fantastic reader. He really adds a "real" feel to it. You can definitely feel the emotional intent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Grave Peril?

    There are many!


    What does James Marsters bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Marsters brings the emotional side of things. He conveys Harry's sarcasm as well as his compassion! It is a pleasure to see him grow as an audio book reader. I am on the 4th book now and he only gets better!


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

    It made me laugh several times. I did not cry but felt Harry's distress in the end of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    It is a great series with a great reader!

    "Another fun listen"

    Marsters is the perfect narrator for this series! I love that Harry gets into so much trouble all at once. The new characters make the story richer. These books are not particularly intellectually stimulating, but are perfect for when I'm in the studio working.

    Any additional comments?

    This is my favorite of the first three books. You have to accept the ridiculousness of the story as Harry goes from one impossible to escape certain death situation to another even more perilous and then another ...etc...etc...to the point of absurdity. I like the new characters Michael and Fairy Godmother. Glad there is very little of Murphy who I find highly annoying. All in all good stuff. I was almost ready to quit the series after book 2 but this one brought me back.

    Story
    "Urban wizard, True Knight, Vampires, Ghosts"
    What did you love best about Grave Peril?

    Loved the action, wry wit, Scooby-Doo lunch pail, the True Knight, the twists and turns of the problems.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Just as you think the problem is solved, another one crops up. And Harry fumbles and makes mistakes.


    What does James Marsters bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He acts the part flawlessly, adding his interpretation to emotions & thoughts, thereby reinforcing the written narrative. He gives a fuller experience to the story.

    The writing and performance in this audiobook are both outstanding. I've read the whole Dresden series, but listening to them is a whole new treat.

    "Didn't want to stop Listening"
    What did you love best about Grave Peril?

    The 3rd book in the series Grave Peril Harry shows lots of emotion. It's like you get to see what kind of person he is. Oh The yellow ducky Boxers...Now that's a sight to imagine. ♥ it!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot kept me on the edge of my seat from the very begining. I love how this story jumps right to action. Sometimes it takes a chapter or two, not with Grave Peril.


    Which character – as performed by James Marsters – was your favorite?

    I can't pick a fav. I really loved them all. James Marsters in my top 5 Narrators.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Action Packed

    Tell us about yourself! Mystery and Sci-fi/fact reader. Audio books read to me while I'm driving or if I'm sick and can't read. Love to be entertained.

    "Harry starts a whole new lifestyle"
    What made the experience of listening to Grave Peril the most enjoyable?

    it seems when I thought I knew what was happening, I was wrong.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harry and his apprentice (former apprentice) are my favorite characters in the story. However, there are plenty of interesting characters throughout the story.


    What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

    I love the narrator. The characters have their own voices and the tone and timbre take you into the story so you become your own character.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Just when you thought it was safe to go out on the water.


    Any additional comments?

    Always an easy "read" yet the great story lines and narrator put you right there inside the story.
