The Winter Queen of Faerie manipulates him into accepting a case to solve a murder and stop a war between the courts of Summer and Winter that could have literally earth shattering consequences. His own soul is up for grabs. Dresden must dig deep to discover that at time a willingness to accept a little help from your friends, be they a cub pack of werewolves, old loves in sheep's clothing, or a battalion of pizza loving dewdrop fairies, is a very good thing.

The colorful characters that Dresden always finds himself interacting with.
A little. The down side to Dresden is it is always on going. It isn't like the story is heading somewhere. Each book operates independently so as long as we keep buying then we will get more. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. It is nice to have something different every once in a while. It does take away from the edge of your seat feeling.
I loved his performance. He sounds just like I thought Harry would. Fits this book like a glove.
Dresden finds a moment of peace was kind of cool.
This feels like an episode of television. One story in a season.
I figured Summer Knight was probably going to be the main precursor of Cold Days among the early Harry Dresden books so while I waited for the latter to be released I went back and read it. It didn't hurt that the price was reduced to $4.95 at the time. I think Marsters is a great actor and puts a lot of inflection, interest and variety into his readings, but frankly I had imagined Harry with a deeper voice when I was reading text versions. Also, while the squeaky voices Marsters uses for the miniature fairies is cute, it was impossible for me to understand. That said, as everyone else has observed Marsters is Harry Dresden and I will howl with the rest of them if he doesn't continue as narrator. Oh, and Summer Knight was great. Not as long and complex as Cold Days turned out to be, but still a great Dresden story in the typical staff waving, Forzare! and reluctant mayhem sort of way.
Wouldn't listen again. But thoroughly enjoyed it the first time.
I like his writing style
He does a great job of bringing Harry to life
Guy Noir meets Buffy the vampire slayer
These books are fun I like the humorous detective noir style.
This book continues the series tradition a great listen very well presented. Is there another book to come?
The Dresden Files has become one of my all time favorite series. And the Summer Knight does not dissapoint! If you're a Harry Dresden fan, you'll throughly enjoy this one. I used to watch The Dresden Files when it was on TV. James Marsters voice & inflection are spot on to how I see Harry.
I now have all of the audio books that are available at this time. I love them all except #13 where they changed the narrator, which totally ruined the experience for me. But this ones great.
Yes. I would listen to it again to maybe gain insight to where the overall story of Harry was going. To pick up on those things you may have missed the first time.
Why Harry of course! I am quite fond of Bob as well. Bob's sense of humor cracks me up.
Only the other Dresden books. James Marsters is fantastic! He really makes Harry come alive and has really developed a "character" for each person in the story. I put off getting into this series because I prefer female narrators but he does such a fabulous job I am glad I gave it a shot.
Yes and No. It definitely held my interest but I wanted to savor the story and not rush through it. I listen to my books at bedtime so I didn't want to fall asleep and miss anything. I did find myself rewinding a couple of times.
Great series. Incredible narrator.
I constantly recommend these books and the audio versions specifically. The story is a roller coaster ride of action and the production of the audio book is top drawer.
Meeting the rest of the White Council was a big step in fleshing out the world of The Dresden Files
When Harry takes the Peter Pan quote quite seriously, if you know what I mean
There were several Laugh out Loud moments in this book, and just as many edge of your seat times.
If you have made it to number 4, I hope you have been sufficiently hooked. The series really takes off.
Yes, there's always a twist in Butcher's stories.
Her really takes on the characters he's reading, they are very distinct.
The book is freaking awesome and James Marsters nails Dresden.
The attack of the little folk.
He nails all the characters. He is Harry Dresden.
An enjoyable break from the vampire war (though that is great too, this is just something a bit different)
Mother of three, grand-ma to my sweet baby.
As far as the Dresden files goes it has been my favorite of the series. The Mr. Marsters is fantastic! He kept me laughing and on the edge of my set waiting to hear what else has about to happen. This story really pulled me in, it was hard to do anything other than listen to this book. A wonderful series for anyone that likes the mistery and feel of the old time "gumshoe" detective story.
