Publisher's Summary

Harry Dresden, Chicago's only practicing professional wizard, should be happy that business is pretty good for a change. But he also knows that whenever things are going good, the only way left for them to go is bad. Way bad. Recent examples: A duel with the lethal champion of the Red Court, who must kill Harry to end the war between vampires and wizards...Hit men using Harry for target practice...The missing Shroud of Turin - and the possible involvement of Chicago's most feared mob boss...A handless and headless corpse the Chicago police need identified...Not to mention the return of Harry's ex-girlfriend Susan, who's still struggling with her semi-vampiric nature - and who seems to have a new man in her life. Some days, it just doesn't pay to get out of bed. No matter how much you're charging.

    Story
    "Adventure at a great pace. Enjoy the ride!"

    The balance of well developed characters you care about and a pace that allows you to be immersed in the story is hard to find elsewhere and impressively executed. If you like fantasy ground in the hard facts of everyday life. I have found very few that contend with The epics of the Dresden Files.

    "Immersion all around!"

    James Marsters does an AMAZING job of voicing all the male characters, and even does decent justice to the female ones as well. However since the book has some "steamy" scenes here and there, I would have definitely preferred a female voice in order to narrative the story as well. My only complaint, the rest was flawless!

    "My favorite so far"

    Incredible narration, a sex scene that didn't make me cringe, action, new and exciting information about the Dresden Universe, and a story I will love to listen to again.

    Story
    "One of my favorite Dresden books!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Death Masks to be better than the print version?

    I have no idea, I have never read Death Masks.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Shiro Yoshimo was a really fun character. It was really cool to see another of the Knights of the Cross, other than Michael.


    What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

    I think he did a very good job on this one. Some of the earlier books, not so much. Too much lip smacking. It became distracting. Glad he toned it down for this one.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    War is coming.


    Any additional comments?

    From this book on in things start really ramping up! This is a really fun series!

    "enthralling as usual"

    Both the story and naration are outstanding. As ridiculous as the plot is, the detective wizard simply drags you along with him in his crazy world.

    "Hitting its stride"

    Both Marsters and Butcher are hitting their stride in this book. Marsters is mastering and relishing in the voices of the characters and the tone of the series, and Butcher has settled on the noir-snark blend that makes the series fun to read/listen to.

    "The true beginning for the rest of the series."

    It has taken me a long time to make headway in the Dresden Files series; roughly 4 books in two years. As much love as I've had for Harry and his misadventures, I kept hitting hiatus after hiatus, usually mere chapters before the climax reached it's peak. However, there was a shift with Death Mask's. Butcher has now mastered his form, and Marsters too. I finished this book in a week. Favorite in the series so far.
