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.

    "Not my favorite, but another great Dresden adventu"
    Would you listen to Summer Knight again? Why?

    No, I rarely listen to, or read books twice and this one is rather too drawn out in places, plus I'm hardly going to forget this storyline!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harry of course!!


    What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

    James Master's is Harry Dresden. I love the way he performs these books and he's part of the reason I'm hooked.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a good installment in the series. Dresden is such a great character, but it is a little drawn out and lengthy in parts, not my favorite.

    "Turning point in the series"

    For me this book took the series from, oh I might as well listen, to actively making excuses to listen.

    "Love Marsters!"

    His smooth sinuous voice captures the essence of Harry Dresden. The story line blows up with old and new characters.

    I'm an avid reader and writer who is brand new to the audiobook scene, and so far... I love it.

    "A thoroughly exciting listen!"

    This book got me to work every day feeling excited and ready to go. I absolutely love the narrators voice and every different tones he use each and every character. I could not stop listening and I didn't even want to go to work it was so good! I highly recommend it!

    "A Knightly Tale"

    Once again, Marsters picks up what Butcher put down on the page and made it jump to life.

    Pacing was excellent - rising and falling at the exact time I wanted it to. The use of clever language and wit, throwing in some RPGs (with werewolves), and what seems to be an increasingly strong nod more toward the fantasy genre - trolls, unicorns, swords, pixies, centaurs, and more... huge points.

    One comment I will make on a more constructive note, and I found this with Fool Moon, the denouement comes fast and furious with multiple threads being tied together. I realize this must happen in order for it to be a story that's worth telling, but for me it "almost" threw too much at me all at once.

    Butcher's writing is REALLY coming along (which is what many have said would happen as I progressed on after Fool Moon) and I can't put the darn things down :)

    "you'll fall in love with this series"

    Harry Dresden...beyond human, but oh so wonderfully flawed. To know him is to love him for all those faults and all that heart...

    "MAGICAL!"

    I kept reading that book 3 was when this series really took off but honestly I was a little disappointed with the last one. But I decided to give the series one last chance to keep me reading and the 4th one really did it for me. The action was well done as always. My usual complaint is that the books are set up as mysteries with magic but the mystery is never good. Ever. It still wasn't EXCELLENT with this one, but I did enjoy it more than previous books. As usual there are some pretty funny lines and every woman had bodacious bodies that are described in incredible detail. At least this one didn't end with Harry finding just an ounce more of power.... then another ounce... then another ounce! It was a little more clever. It sounds like I'm criticizing it more than I should, but I really did enjoy it. If you liked the previous books, this one is a must read. And if your interest was waning, this one might pull you back in. It did for me.

    "Another masterpiece"

    Jim Butcher and James Marsters do it again! This time Harry Dresden faces off against the odds with trolls and tree monsters in his path! A beautiful and mysterious woman, a suspicious death, and a sudden reaquantance all spell trouble for Harry as he battles to gain credibility with a council of old, scraggly wizards.

    Love your work Jim, and it is even better the second time through!

    "Wonderful magical book"

    James Marsters is probably my favourite narrator, I love how he does those little laughs, how he screams, how he breathes. Brilliant reading of the best Dresden book so far. The action never stops, time is running out and Harry has way too much on his plate. Again. And before I forget: meep meep!

    "They keep getting better and better"

    Seems like every book is a little better than the last which is crazy considering the first book was amazing. It's the only series I've ever read were the sequels get better and better and I've already purchased the next two books in the series.
