    "The mind of Jim Butcher is a wonderful place."

    I'm so hooked on this series, I've listened to book after book without stopping, sometimes ending one book late at night, only to crouch on the floor in the dark with my laptop anxiously downloading the next one, while trying not to wake my partner. My mind is filled with Vord and Carnum and High Lords and Ladies. FANTASTIC!

    "Simply Amazing."

    This series has kept me hooked for months, not only through a flowing story of strong characters but also with Kate Reading. She captures every aspect of the characters without the slightest hesitation, through her the emotion that black type couldn't fully throw out was felt through tone and depth. The Romanic spin about the stories were also clever, Jim didn't over exert his skill by placing unmemorable places and objects within his world. Not to say other Fantasy writers have this as a fault, but this material is laid out for anyone to pick up and immerse themselves without little effort. From beginning to end, you grow up with Tavi, you begin to understand the Highlord's decisions, and you just can't help but to wish harm onto the enemies of the Realm.

    This is Fantasy Writing at it's grandest.

    "I had to STOP everything!"

    I have listened to the books in this series and (yikes!) I got so involved I stopped everything I was doing and enjoyed the action! Kate Reading is ABSOLUTELY AWESOME. She really brings the characters to life throughout the whole series thus far and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of emotion in her voice! I found myself "feeling" the emotions of characters and situations and I loved the descriptions of places and people, the writer really drew me into the story. I would have to say that this series should be on the credit-worthy list. As a side note, I feel the need to add that I love "Epics" but I am terribly picky about what series I keep listening / reading. This is a great one and I will be sad when it's over.

    "Wonderful series"

    I just love this series, I love all of the characters and care what is happening to each and every one, good and bad! I will be sad if it ends. Soon as I am done, I get the next book.

    "Amazing"

    Jim Butcher has done this again, trapped everything into a book, magic, Romans, love, prison brake and more. his writing is as good as ever. Tavi has work to do, he is now captain of a army. still without any furries of his own he needs to use ingenuity to defend from a attack, but with a spy in the camp is he safe. especially a spy who knows who he really is.

    There is one thing I don't like, and its my personal opinion, but Butcher is starting to put more and more sex into his novels. to many authors I find start off with no sex, or very little and are discrete, then after a few books there is lots of detailed sex. I personally find it ruins the magic of a book, and I am finding Jim Butcher is doing that here too.

    i still really love the reversal of magic you find in this world, its fantastic and amazing, everything else is great. of course he still needs to work on foreshadow but maybe i just read to much that i can make the connection quickly.

    This is now one of my all time favorite series now. The story and characters are amazing. Kate Reading does a superb job of narrating.

    "Top Notch"

    This series is wonderful. I've listened to all 5 as of July09 and I look forward to what should be the final book (or maybe next to last) in the series. The narration is very good.... Highly recommended!

    "Oh please please someone get Butcher an editor!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It's a fun story and the characters really grow on you, but they all:1) arch an eyebrow (a pale eyebrow, a heavy eyebrow, a disdainful eyebrow ...2) lift their chin in defiance/resolution/determination3) ball their fists and grind their teeth in fury4) notice or keep people from noticing their hands trembling.

    Kate Reading is an inspired reader. One of the absolute top out there.

    "Great Series, Great Author"

    Just wanted to encourage all Sci-Fi readers to check out this series. I think you will love it.
    And dont miss the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher.
    At this time Audibon only has 1 of that series. Sure hope they get the whole series. It's about Chicago's only Wizard. It's full of action. I love it when Dresdon raises a Dinasaur to fight the bad guys. All the books are terrific.
