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.

James Marsters reading adds extra depth to the story.
Cold Days is an excellent addition to the Dresden files series. The story is complex and entertaining. It will keep you guessing until the end.
Look upward and see the wonders I've seen
A living, breathing Dresden. I love how Dresden reacts to his new role as Winter Knight and the first mission he is given by Mab. I enjoyed seeing the crew, Thomas, Karen, Molly, Butters and Mouse joining in and interacting with Dresden as he takes us through the murky world of Winter and Summer.
The reunion of Harry and Thomas. I really enjoy these two together.
James Marsters is Harry.
Yes, unfortunately I could not. The only thing I hate is that it eventually had to end and I have to wait a whole year for the next installment!
While this still hasn't rivaled my favorite Dresden book, Changes, this is a solid win for me. There may have been one or two "plot holes" or inconsistencies that I had to use more than the average amount of suspension of disbelief, but the book was entertaining (which matters more to me).
James Marsters, as always, is wonderful.
Probably not, I love all the Dresden books but have yet felt compelled to read any of them a second time
The final battle on the island.
Beginning with "The Hunt" through the final battle
I have very much enjoyed the entire series and will be sorry to see it end...yet I hope Dresden finds comfort, safety and peace in the end.
Things are starting to come together to who is behind the Grey Council.
It will be interesting to see what the outcome of the ending will be.
I think this series is sadly ending but hope I am wrong.
Marsters was again the best Harry ever.
Love the whole Dresden series. Books 12 and 13 were getting a little stale. And the change in reader in book 13 was definitely a bummer. In Book 14 Dresden begins to be his old sarcastic but loveable self. It's great to have Marsters back as the reader!
James Marsters is back! James makes Harry come to life.
Harry as the Winter Knight is great.
The showdown with Mab is great and the story shows the growth of Harry as a person and a wizard. Be prepared to be awed.
Great pick up of where Jim left off. Greatly read by James. Dresden is genius a great read or Listen.
This was SUCH a good book, I enjoyed every thrill packed minute. James Marsters IS Harry Dresden. This book was one of Jim Butcher's best. Exciting from beginning to end. All the characters are back. I couldn't stop listening. At the end all I could think is 'WOW what a ride!" I'd give it 6 stars, if I could.
Only sad part is that the book is over and I have to wait a year for another.
