Publisher's Summary

Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is a very powerful wizard and a dedicated private eye. He is also a wise cracking trouble magnet. Fueled by a tempest of guilt, sleep deprivation, malnutrition, bad temper and frankly awful personal grooming. Harry is hurtling toward oblivion. According to Harry that is nobody's business but his own.

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.

    "narration is terrible"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It is clear he doesn't read the books before narrating them. I have hundreds if not thousands of hours of listening under my belt and he is one of the worst. Marsters fumbles his way through every paragraph like a lost child trying to find his way through a huge crowd,.. never seeming to connect with the story. I cannot believe all the positive reviews he gets... it is painful listening at times....to the point of distraction. I have tried three times to come back to this series hoping he gets better but no such luck. Remember the kid in school who read out loud and fumbled through it and you felt bad for them? That is this guy.

    "Entertaining but aimless"
    Would you listen to Summer Knight again? Why?

    Not my favorite, though narrator remains a treat. I worry that the world is becoming too random and complicated. Motives in this one are pretty obscure.

    "Series Review"

    Harry is one of my favorite fictional characters. The only negative is using up all my credits once I became addicted to the series.

    "Swallowing & Endorsements"

    This is a fun series - don't get me wrong. Much of the good has been described - now allow me to vent. #1 - Marsters is a great narrator - but his loud and periodic swallowing is so agitating. I stopped listening to the series on account of it. Every time I heard him - I cringed. #2 - Does Butcher has some endorsement deal with Coke? He is always talking about it....and when I thought it couldn't get anymore obvious, Dresden puts a Coke baseball cap on before battle. Overkill or overly sensitive?

    "Good but Irritating Product Placement"

    Authors have to pay bills, but just as the Star Wars films declined in quality as the desire for merchandising revenues began to influence the stories, the Dresden files are suffering from ads for Coca Cola and Walmart. The story is compelling and even though all of these books are a bit repetitious, they are great "reads" but frequent uses of "reached for a coke," "cans of coca cola," "an empty can of coke" are obvious and irritating. The Walmart ads are quite as frequent, but still noticeable. Yes, in past, authors were paid by the word and their work suffered as a result, but product placement in novels spoils the escapism they should be, and, for me, calls into question the integrity of the author. If authors need to sell ads, perhaps simply put commercials at the beginning and the end.
