©2003 Jim Butcher; (P)2009 Penguin Audiobooks
I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.
This book is where you really meet the Denairians. these are Demons who possess mortals through coins to do their evil work. In this one they are trying to steal the Shroud of Turin. You know that can't be good. reading this one you'll laugh a lot, cry a little and get a better understanding of the main characters.
But boy was it worth the wait. The stride that Butcher hits around book 3 continues here. I would be surprised if anyone could listen this to this book and not find themselves laughing out loud while getting sucked into another great adventure from the worlds second most famous wizard named Harry. It is going to be a long seven months waiting for book 6!
This series keeps getting better even though there is a bit of a formula with the stories, I don't know how its going to end within the first five minutes of the book because he actually holds back.
Marsters always does a great job, but just like the stories he is getting better with time.
Yes.Because I am really enjoying the Dresdin books.I wish I could afford them all.One at a time will do for now though.
The story line and James Marsters is great in the narration for them.
I can't distinguish between them.I like them all.I think Harry is my favorite though.
The humor in it is great for a mystery.
Another fun Harry Dresden book. This one had so much going on that it was hard to follow all the story lines or believe it could all be tidied up by the end, but in tru Butcher fashion, Harry prevails and the only loose ends are those that want to make you read the next book. Michael is back, so is Susan, and the new characters are all welcome additions.
Harry is finally working towards an even footing in life. He's as close to financially solvent as he has been in a while, thanks in part to an appearance on a local talk show.
At the talk show he meets a vampire general from the Red Court who wants Harry to agree to a duel to stop the war he started and a priest who needs Harry's help recovering a holy relic, the shroud of Turin.
There's no avoiding the duel, and Harry being Harry, agrees to look into the shroud when his long distance sort of but not quite ex-girlfriend Susan Rodriguez, one time journalist now half Red Court vampire, walks back into this life with a warning. Don't duel.
What's not to like about a Dresden novel? There was a lot of heart, endings and beginnings in this book. Loved it.
Love listening to audio books at work or on the road.
Already have 3 times, Dresden is my favorite series
He is the embodiment of the character and really brings the story alive.
I would. This book really checked all my boxes. The characters are great, the plot was well thought-out, the narration enriched the story...what more could I want? I would totally listen to the whole series again...^_^
Loved the short scenes with the mischievous Molly Carpenter...too funny :)
The most notiable piece from this book is the amount of introspection that Dresden has. This in turn caused me to have some of the same moments of introspection. I don't want to say that this book is "deep" yet it is.
Death Masks also marks the introduction of Christian undercurrent that will continue for the rest of the series. A nice touch that Jim Butcher masterfully weaves into the book as if it's gold string into quilt. Instead of feeling beat over the head with philosophy and religion the undercurrent pushes the story along.
I am a 27 year old nurse pursuing a nurse practitioner degree. My favorite book genres are: fantasy, science fiction, medicine and sociology
Well, this audiobook was another solid, excellent narration by Marsters. I adore his voices, but then again I've adored him since he was Spike on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The story itself is also solid, and delivers all the twists and action that one expects from Dresden Files books.
We see Harry Dresden's love interest Susan returns. You will find that you will root for it to work out. Harry's patient waiting for over a year for Susan to return kindles a sort of desire for their relationship working out inside me, it made me sit on the edge of my seat until the end of the book, wanting to know what will happen and if I get my way with the story. I won't spoil anything further than that, you just need to listen and learn.
