Publisher's Summary

Harry Dresden lives!

After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness.

After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long. And now, her word is his command, no matter what she wants him to do, no matter where she wants him to go, and no matter who she wants him to kill. Guess which one Mab wants first?

Of course, it won’t be an ordinary, everyday assassination. Mab wants her newest minion to pull off the impossible: kill an immortal. No problem there, right? And to make matters worse, there exists a growing threat to an unfathomable source of magic that could land Harry in the sort of trouble that will make death look like a holiday.

Beset by enemies new and old, Harry must gather his friends and allies, prevent the annihilation of countless innocents, and find a way out of his eternal subservience before his newfound powers claim the only thing he has left to call his own… his soul.

    Story
    "One of the best books in one of the best series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's excellent on almost all points.


    What other book might you compare Cold Days to and why?

    The rest in the Dresden series. The Jim Butcher Dresden books are the books all other Urban Fantasy is compared to.


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

    Marsters has become the voice of Harry Dresden. Even when I read the print versions of the books I hear Marsters' voice for Harry.


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

    Not extreme, but I did laugh.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book.

    "Awesome addition to the series"
    What made the experience of listening to Cold Days the most enjoyable?

    I was disappointed in the last book but this one was certainly worth sticking with the series for. Was a great book with tons of action. I am also soon glad that they brought back Marsters to read this. He is exactly what Dresden should be.

    Story
    "Dresden is Back"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Dreseden and the Wild Hunt was one of the highlights of the Novel.

    Cat Sith was my favorite, I hope he returns

    Story
    "Harry's back and kicks more butt than ever!"

    The story of Harry Dresden coping, or attempting to cope, with being the Winter Knight is very compelling. The twists and turns this book takes are typical Butcher, and are as good, or better, than ever. Harry's cast of pals is back and haven't lost a beat, plus we see a side of Mack we never have before. The best part of the audio book is that James Marsters is back as the narrator, and he is a fantastic Dresden, something that was truly lacking in Ghost Story. I highly recommend this book to all Dresden fans, and if you have yet to start reading the series...What are you WAITING for?!? Go, Go, GO!

    "As good as expected"

    With James Marsters back narrating, it is as great as expected. I hope they never are so misguided as to record again without him as narrator, once was too many.

    "I can't get enough of Dresden"
    What does James Marsters bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Marsters is Dresden. The dramatic pauses and flavor he puts into the character takes a great story and makes it even better.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I'm amazed at the consistent quality of this series. Many good series get overly complicated and fall off after a few books. Not this one!

    Story
    "Dresden is back and so is Marsters!"
    What did you love best about Cold Days?

    After last year's "Ghost Story" left me really bummed out (the story and the only audiobook of the series without James Marsters), "Cold Days" more than makes up for it! Top notch story and the true voice of Harry Dresden!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The old Harry is back with even more power. He's once again trying desperately to balance "doing the right thing" with not going over to the Dark Side.


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

    Harry Dresden and Sith.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't hesitate! Get it!

    "Butcher does it again!"

    I am amazed the at the quality and uniqueness of each of the Dresden stories. I could not turn off the audio book because again the story pulls you into the lives of the characters and you live out the story. Fantastic!
