Any additional comments?

Peter Clines does an excellent job in reimagining the zombie sub-genre. I enjoyed the twists in the 4-in-1 story's perspective. I really wish there was more to it. I feel a reader would enjoy more stories from any of the protagonists, and one antagonist, that are followed in the tale. Excellent work!

If you could sum up Warbound in three words, what would they be?

The Power saw.

Any additional comments?

Warbound is a great wrap-up to this story arc, and I hope to see future titles from the Grimnoir Chronicles. I was a little disappointed by the smaller roles given to Francis, Dan, and Heinrich, but there was so much covered in this installment that it was to be expected.

What made the experience of listening to Cold Days the most enjoyable?

Having Marsters back in the Dresden driving seat brought the characters back into focus. Not that Glover was bad... just not right.

What did you like best about this story?

Butcher has ramped up the stakes in the Dresden-verse. It would be to easy to spoil it by bringing up the best moments in this story

What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

It is also worth mentioning again, that with all of the character development Marsters put into the voices, It was amazing "seeing" them again.

A perfect fusion of Superheros and Zombie Apocalypse. What others promised and failed to give, this delivers in spades.

A colorful cinematic created with well timed descriptions and vibrant dialogues. It's thought provoking plot involving the importance of "Names" was really enjoyable.

A nice fusion of magic, steampunk, and crime noir. Good characters and a fairly smooth story narration.

Actually not a bad story, Most of the plot has been used many times, but I thought the differences were refreching. This change to the vampire mythos takes a bit of getting used to, but it showed daring.

I enjoyed this mashed up retelling of Shakespeare. I was left wanting more of the loose ends tired up, but the primary story was good. The narration kept my attention even through some of the more trivial parts of the story. Thanks.

This book is everything that Marvel Zombies should have been. I was really impressed with how the story draws you in, and manages the character origins while not losing thread of the current events. Well done.

Ghost Story: The Dresden Files, Book 13 audiobook cover art

Great Story... loses something without James M.

Butcher gets better with each story, and leaves one wanting the next installment as soon as the book ends. I was a bit disappointed in the narration. John Glover did great, but he just isn't Harry.... or many of the other characters. It may be different if he had been "Harry" from the beginning. Definitely still worth the listen, though I hope Marsters is available for the next story.
