Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day.… Because as Winter Knight to the Queen of Air and Darkness, Harry never knows what the scheming Mab might want him to do. Usually, it’s something awful. He doesn’t know the half of it… Mab has just traded Harry’s skills to pay off one of her debts. And now he must help a group of supernatural villains - led by one of Harry’s most dreaded and despised enemies, Nicodemus Archleone - to break into the highest-security vault in town, so that they can then access the highest-security vault in the Nevernever.

This is the first book from Ellery Adams that I've had the chance to read or in this case listen to. I knew it was going to be a murder mystery but I had no clue how wonderful and delightful the characters would be. I can so see Great aunt Octavia and her formidable size and personality. I look forward to future books being done in audio in the series. The reader was so entertaining and brought the characters to life. I can see story bro call in my mind and it seems like a place of such joy and beauty and I cannot wait to read more.

What did you love best about Star Trek, The Next Generation?

I loved the show and the actors who portrayed the wonderful characters of Next Gen.

What did you like best about this story?

In this story, written by Peter David, I laughed and enjoyed the book the first time I 'READ" the story. Then I heard it was made into an audio with Majel Barrett and John de Lancie reading. I had to get it. And the story rocked... but

What does Majel Barrett and John de Lancie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

What can I say, I loved them on the show and as readers they brought the fun and authenticity to the story. I felt like I could close my eyes and see the story unfold as if it was actually on the screen and not just an audio book.

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

Actually that is just what I did. I listen to audios while I work. Scanning files is pretty much boring. So this keeps me going. The better the audio book, the more I get done. With this book I sat and listened and worked the full length and was surprised it was over so soon.

Any additional comments?

Why oh why did they have to Abridge this book? It's not that long a story to start with. Someone get the story put out in a full version. Please???
