A daring and resourceful paleontologist uncovers something at the infamous K-T boundary marking the end of dinosaurs in the fossil record - something big, dangerous, and absolutely, categorically impossible. It's a find that will catapult her to the Martian moon Phobos, then down to the crater-pocked desert of the Red Planet itself. For this mild-mannered fossil hunter may just have become Earth's first practicing xenobiologist!

Too much endless talk about tech and not enough plot. The next book sounds like a constant argument over money.

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.

What did you love best about Skin Game?

Harry is finally connecting with his daughter. Butters rules!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Skin Game?

I loved it when Butters pulled the Sword of Faith on Nicodemus. Thrilling

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

Yes, I couldn't stop listening. Food and sleep were secondary.
