Publisher's Summary

Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden has had a rough couple of weeks. As the only openly practicing professional wizard in the Chicago area, he has squared off against a multitude of supernatural bad guys. Harry has won the day against demons, poltergeists, sorcerers, trolls, vampires, werewolves, and even an evil faerie godmother. You might think nothing could spook him. You would be wrong.

Something is stirring up angry apparitions all over town. Something that can break all the laws of supernatural physics. Something that doesnt like Harry. His closest friends are being targeted. The net is closing in. Harry must find a solution soon or find this is one Nightmare from which he will never waken.

    "Entertaining Sci-Fi / Mystery Blend"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    A bit repetitive in parts, but still an entertaining listen.


    Any additional comments?

    My brothers encouraged me to keep listening through the series, as they think that the series grows stronger and more interesting with each book. They seem to be right. I will listen to the next book in this series. Entertaining Sci-Fi/Mystery/Fantasy Fluff.

    "Harry found his heart"

    Story was great. More complications than the past books, more character involvement, and something meaningful. My only criticism is that the reader cannot pronounce the the word height, and a few others, properly. Drove me insane. How did the producers not catch this and fix it?

    "My favorite so far!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I agree with the reviewer who notes all the times Harry gets into such deep trouble that there seems no way out (yet we know he must since there are more books in the series) and how intense this book is. I could hardly bear it at times. But I also felt that I must have missed something in between books 2 and 3..... There seemed to be 'regular' characters who have a past with Harry that I could not remember --Michael and Thomas, the Priest .... Anyway-nice job, overall. Ordering Book 4 now......


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Grave Peril?

    So many edge-of-seat moments! Not good when driving in heavy traffic maybe as I could only focus on the book. Not kidding!


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

    Harry, of course. But I really got interested in Michael and Thomas too.


    Any additional comments?

    Must-listen for Dresden fans.

    "Great performance and Great book"

    I have been a fan of the Dresden series for a while but have always been picky about audiobook performances. James Marsters really hit the nail on the head and never fails to perform Harry's voice and tone to the utmost perfection. I haven't had a problem with Marsters' performance and the Dresden series continues to be a fantasy detective series that blows me away.

    "Perfect combination!"
    Any additional comments?

    Every once in a while the right combination of things come together perfectly. This audiobook fits that description. I enjoyed this book the first time I read it years ago but listening to James Marsters perform this story really takes it to a whole new level. The series seems to really be taking off at this point and the story was very well done. I completely enjoyed every moment that I spent listening to this book during my re-read.

    Harry Dresden's life is anything but boring. This book starts with a bang and really doesn't slow down until the end. I love how many different things can come together to make sense in Harry's world. In this book, there are ghosts, demons, and vampires all mixed together and it flows smoothly. The mystery was pretty complex in this one with a lot of things happening that will be brought up again as the series moves forward. I had a hard time setting this one aside.

    I am so in love with the characters. Harry is awesome in his own way. He is funny and able to think on his feet. He makes decisions based not only on what is best for him but what will be best for others. He risks himself to helps other people quite often. Michael played a large role in this book and I really enjoyed his character. It was really fun to go back and see some of my favorite characters early in the series. Karin, Bob, Susan and everyone else really all added important pieces to the story as well.

    James Marsters is the perfect voice of Harry Dresden. I absolutely love how this book was narrated. He didn't just read the story - he performed it. I could totally hear every one of Harry's emotions in the performance. I was really impressed that even the perfectly placed breath seem to add to the delivery. He performed all of the different characters flawlessly. I can't wait to listen to more books narrated by James Marsters.

    I would highly recommend this series to fans of urban fiction. This is a series that you will want to read in order since there are some story arc that carry over from previous books. I am looking forward to listening to book four in the series very soon.
