Derrick is one of the creatus, created beings who have lived on the Earth for more than 4,000 years. Many questions surround the origin of these sentient beings who are stronger than humans, eat differently, and live longer. But they were created just as we were, maybe even before us. It is from them we obtain our fairy tales - and our nightmares. They are the reason we believe in superheroes - and monsters. Because...they exist.

Story is different and less predictable than most books.

The narrator does a good job with voices but stumbles over many words and pronounces them incorrectly. It's slightly annoying.

The Winter Queen of Faerie has manipulated Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden into accepting a case to solve a murder and stop a war between the courts of Summer and Winter that could have literally earth shattering consequences. His own soul is up for grabs. Dresden must dig deep to discover that at time a willingness to accept a little help from your friends, be they a cub pack of werewolves, old loves in sheep's clothing, or a battalion of pizza loving dewdrop fairies, is a very good thing.

As with the previous books they're still awesome...and james does a great performance. The only problem is his mispronounciations of commonly used words. At some points I almost want to shut it off and take the time to read it instead. However, overall it's very good...if you can get past it.
