Few have been a member of Donald Trump’s inner orbit longer than Omarosa Manigault Newman. Their relationship has spanned 15 years - through four television shows, a presidential campaign, and a year by his side in the most chaotic, outrageous White House in history. But that relationship has come to a decisive and definitive end, and Omarosa is finally ready to share her side of the story in this explosive, jaw-dropping account.

Omarosa’s story is about how she rose above humble difficult beginnings to become a powerhouse in her own mind in the White House. Her bitterness comes through in her complaints about how the Clinton campaign did not recognize her contributions, about how trump’s staff did not recognize her contributions and finally about how trump with the help of John Kelly betrayed her in the end. Through it all she continued to rise above and more importantly to get even with her detractors. An interesting read about a deeply flawed individual.

After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

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

hard biting fiction

Who was your favorite character and why?

Harry Dresden - he struggles to do the right thing

Which character – as performed by James Marsters – was your favorite?

Harry Dresden - the voice is just what I feel that Harry would sound like

Any additional comments?

Was not sure where the author could go after Harry 'died' and then came back as the winter knight to an evil queen of fairy. But Jim Butcher delivered again and as the story moved on we find that evil is not always what we think that it is.
