Publisher's Summary

The new novel in the New York Times best-selling Dresden Files series.

No one's tried to kill Harry Dresden for almost an entire year, and his life finally seems to be calming down. For once, the future looks fairly bright. But the past casts one hell of a long shadow.

An old bargain has placed Harry in debt to Mab, monarch of the Winter Court of the Sidhe, the Queen of Air and Darkness - and she's calling in her marker. It's a small favor he can't refuse, one that will trap Harry Dresden between a nightmarish foe and an equally deadly ally, and one that will strain his skills-and loyalties-to their very limits.

It figures. Everything was going too well to last....

    "A Good Story Badly Edited. Beware Missing Parts."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It's an entertaining story & Marsters does his usual fine job of narrating. But there are approximately 30 lines of dialogue & text missing from chapter 13 (a smidge less than 10 minutes in) that make the section a bit hard to follow. I'm disappointed in the lack of quality control (Again! Get it together Audible!). Now that I've gone and read the missing section, I'll get back to enjoying the story and hope there aren't any more errors.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible, you need to hire people who can create a decent (iPhone) app. It was fine a few years ago, but now it's pretty glitchy. Less time re-designing logos, more time creating a good user interface, please!

    "Part of Chapter 13 is missing from the audio."

    Part of Chapter 13 is missing. Most of a conversation is missing. It throws off the pace of the story.

    "Great story, great narration, but missing parts"
    What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

    James Marsters is a fabulous narrator. I have really enjoyed the way he performs this series (though the way he pronounces some words makes me giggle now and then).


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

    I just heard about this series a few weeks ago and have been reading/listening to them in every spare moment since.


    Any additional comments?

    I was listening to Chapter 13, and right in the middle of a sentence the narration jumps about a page and a half! That's a pretty good chunk that people who don't own the book will miss.

    I am really glad that I have the ebook, so I was able to pause the narration and get caught up. I have found missing lines in some of the other books, but nothing like this. It's very disappointing. Hopefully there aren't any more issues like this in the narration/editing.

    "A winner"

    I have been listening to audio books for over two years. This will be my first review.
    I love the TV series Dresden Files. And the audio book was just as wonderful. Jim Butcher can tell a story and make you want more. He takes the unbelievable and makes it possible, scary. I love Harry, more please.

    "Buy this book!"

    Great story + amazingly talented narrator = one of my favorite audiobooks of all time. Marsters is so versatile that you'll swear it's more than just one narrator. The story is fast paced and riveting. This one is worth a listen. I just wish the entire series was on Audible.

    I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.

    "Read it! Just read it already..."

    This is my favorite book in the series. The archive features big in this one and the Denarians as well. You also get your first look at Demonreach in this one. A major foreshadowing of things to come. This is a really action packed book. If you don't like this one then something is wrong with you ;)

    "The Billy Goats Gruff? And they're nasty!"

    Butcher surprises and pleases again and again. The longer this series goes the better it gets. I love how Harry is tied into all realms of the supernatural, this time Mab comes a callin. The billy goats gruff are also an awesome addition and we see further and further into Harry's psyche. Kincaid reappears, "gulp" for Murphy and Harry. Awkward! Anastasia Lucio's role in this book is very well done too. Awesome book. Anytime the Fae are involved, how can you go wrong?

    "Love it as usual"

    James Marsters is the absolute best narrator. Love the stories. They keep me wanting much more. We have listened to all the books and just can't wait to start the next one. This book leaves lots of unanswered questions and concerns for those of us who have become invested in the characters. Hope Jim Butcher keeps Harry casting magic for many more adventures.

    "It makes commuting a joy"

    This is brain candy - but really tasty sophisticated brain candy. While the setting is fantasy, the characters are real enough to care about. Furthermore, Butcher always comes up with a complicated and interesting twist to the motivations driving the plot. James Marsters is an inspired choice for the narrator. His voice for Harry Dresden is suitably hard boiled while his voice for Toot-toot (the fairy) is indescribable. This is a thoroughly enjoyable ride.

    Jim Bucher did it again, another wonderful novel and just can't wait for the next one.
