Publisher's Summary

The eagerly awaited new novel in the number-one New York Times best-selling Dresden Files series.

When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has no body and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

Due to scheduling conflicts, there’s a new Dresden narrator in town. You may already know John Glover from Smallville, and we think he’s done a great job capturing Jim Butcher's world. We hope you enjoy his performance.

    "A solid installment in a fun series"

    People need to get over the fact that James Marsters wasn't available to read the book. Too many of the reviews sound like they were written by petulant children. I loved how he read the other books and would have preferred him as the narrator. However, John Glover does a fine job as well.

    The novel itself is very much in line with the other books in the series. Similar humor, adventure, and guilt ridden angst. At points, it does seem to be a bit more like a bridge between the story arch of the last book and what ever is coming next than its own novel -- sort of a method for rapid advancement of the other characters. It is compelling though and kept me interested until the very end.

    "Amazing"

    This is typical Jim Butchersesque awesomesauce! John Glover does a great job sitting in for Mr Marsters as a narrator and some of the voices were darn close to the previous readings. I was worried this book wouldn't advance the meta plot at all and boy howdy was I wrong! A must read

    "Dresden files (Ghost Story)"

    Darrel . Bend, Oregon (7/28/2011)

    upon reading all the reviews and comments about the book I was unsure about purchasing this one, but being a die hard Dresden fan I took the chance. I was surprised and very pleased to find that after listening to this book that in fact the narrator (John Glover) had done a very good job and the story was humerus and lively. I highly recommend this audio book to one and all.

    "I can live with it"

    Of course any Dresden fan is going to be disappointed with the narrator...It's like changing the Harry Potter actor after the 5th movie or something, and the other reviewer is correct - Marsden IS Harry Dresden. I read the paper book first with Harry's voice in my head...then downloaded the audible version. I have fixed it in my head that Harry's voice wouldn't be the same as a ghost (more tinny) than if he was in his own body...and this narrator does sound like he's "reading" the book". However, that said, the story itself is as always awesome, and a must read.

    "Give Glover a chance"

    Fans' fears of the switch from Marsters to Glover are largely unfounded, as far as I'm concerned. While I do prefer Marsters' performance, he's also had thirteen books to get to know Harry and his friends, so it's natural his voices will match up a little better with the voices in my head. That said, Glover's freshman performance is still solid enough to garner five stars from me. I hope folks will be open-minded enough to give him a try. The book and Glover's audio interpretation are well worth your credits!

    "darn good story"

    At first, I wasn't going to buy this because of the change of narrators. Curiosity got the better of me however and I'm glad it did. This is such a good story. As I listened, I became used to Mr. Glover and enjoyed the story even more. I think both Butcher and Glover did an excellent job. I will listen to this over and over. It was worth the wait.

    "Dissappointing"

    Although I am a hugh fan of Jim Butcher and the Dresden Files, I was dissapointed in this book mostly due to the writing. Very little action, Dresden's actions were illogical and the story dragged. I would skip it and move on to the next book in the series.

    "Loved It!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed both the story and the performance. I thought the narration by John Glover was as good as Marsdens. Can't wait to listen to the next one.

    "Story: Good, Voice: Just not the same as James"

    I don't usually write reviews, but I felt like I had to for this book. I liked the story, I really did. But it was hard to listen to when I'd been so accustomed to James Marters' voice for so many books. I'm glad to see that they brought him back for the next book in the series. I already have that one on pre-order.

    John Glover wasn't bad, he was actually pretty good. And I'd be willing to listen to other books narrated by him, but it just wasn't the same without James' unique inflections. It was a distraction from what is actually a pretty good storyline.

    So, I guess my recommendation is to listen for at least a few chapters to get used to John's voice, and get into the story, and know that things will go back to normal on the next book.

    "Butcher is great on audio!"
    What did you love best about Ghost Story?

    John Glover makes the various voices come alive in the story. I was about to cancel my subscription after the awful experience with 50 Shades series. That narrator should only be allowed to read children's books that require a whiny voice. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Butcher makes the characters come alive...and most of them are DEAD!


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

    A 3D quality to the characters. Especially since I have read all 12 previous Butcher books in this series.


    Any additional comments?

    Never again employ the whiner who narrated 50 Shades series!!
