Publisher's Summary

Harry Dresden lives!

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. And now, her word is his command, no matter what she wants him to do, no matter where she wants him to go, and no matter who she wants him to kill. Guess which one Mab wants first?

Of course, it won’t be an ordinary, everyday assassination. Mab wants her newest minion to pull off the impossible: kill an immortal. No problem there, right? And to make matters worse, there exists a growing threat to an unfathomable source of magic that could land Harry in the sort of trouble that will make death look like a holiday.

Beset by enemies new and old, Harry must gather his friends and allies, prevent the annihilation of countless innocents, and find a way out of his eternal subservience before his newfound powers claim the only thing he has left to call his own… his soul.

    "Excellent!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Because it's freaking awesome!


    What other book might you compare Cold Days to and why?

    The Dresden books are a beast unto themselves.


    What does James Marsters bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It's not Harry Dresden unless it's James Marsters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed several times.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is an amazing return after being so disappointed by the last book. It had everything that I felt was missing from Ghost Story.

    Where does Cold Days rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    5 stars along with the rest of the Dresden Files! Glad to have James Marsters reading again. It just wasn't the same without him.


    What did you like best about this story?

    In the last few books we have seen Harry lose absolutely everything. In this book he gets a little of it back.


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

    Um.. Harry! (All of them!) Marsters is fantastic!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Of course. Did I mention its epicness? You will be absolutely shocked, I promise.


    Any additional comments?

    Mouse is back! I love that dog.

    This was one of the best Dresden books to date.

    When Dresden finally kisses Murphy.

    "Good story. Well read by Marsters."

    Jim Butcher always pleases with the Dresden series. Harry's attitude and dialog always crack me up.

    "Back in Black Dusters...?"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Cold Days to be better than the print version?

    Yes, Marsters again delivers


    What other book might you compare Cold Days to and why?

    Summer Knight- Summer Knight was my favorite, I particularly enjoy when Jim Butcher involves the Fairly lore. Honestly I was afraid he was going to kill off Mab, one of the best characters in his franchise!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Hunt with Kringle, I can only imagine!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Molly became the Winter Lady... I did not see this coming- interesting twist, I look forward to see where this goes.

    "Butcher keeps it original and Marsters is awesome!"
    Where does Cold Days rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Cold Days ranks in the top 5% of all the audiobooks I have listened to so far. Better than Jack Campbell, Orson Scott and the rest. Keep James Marsters as the Narrator. Marsters is the cream of the crop for narrators.


    What other book might you compare Cold Days to and why?

    Nope, I usually wouldn't read something like this but the television show caught my interest and then when they canceled I read all the book 1 through 11 in like 2 months and then.....<br/><br/>


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

    I like the internal dialogue of Dresden but I think the Cat was good....


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Many moments got me laughing, shocked, and on the tip of my seat wondering...


    Any additional comments?

    Keep on writing this series Mr. Butcher and lets keep James Marsters...I would even pay more for Marsters like $10.00 more if I had a choice between to narrators.

    This is simply the best book yet. Every book after Summer Knight you wonder how hes going to top the last one, and he still does!


    What other book might you compare Cold Days to and why?

    All other dresden files books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    One word, Vagazzled.....


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

    Yes, but couldnt.
