Publisher's Summary

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.

It's a smash-and-grab job to recover the literal Holy Grail from the vaults of the greatest treasure hoard in the supernatural world - which belongs to the one and only Hades, Lord of the freaking Underworld and generally unpleasant character. Worse, Dresden suspects that there is another game afoot that no one is talking about. And he's dead certain that Nicodemus has no intention of allowing any of his crew to survive the experience. Especially Harry.

Dresden's always been tricky, but he's going to have to up his backstabbing game to survive this mess - assuming his own allies don’t end up killing him before his enemies get the chance.…

    "James Marsters makes Jim Butcher shine. "

    I hav already read the series and am revisiting it via Audio book and have fallen in love with the work all over again. Much of this is due to the amazing performance of James Marsters, he lends a lot of emotion and feeling to the work and seems to nail the sarcastic tone of Harry perfectly. Interestingly enough having his unique delivery throughout the series really highlights the growth in both the character and the authors abilities.

    This is one of my favourite entries in the series, although it's hard to continue the "Harry is the underdog" theme when he has amassed some ridiculous power at this point, Butcher still managed to maintain a sense of danger and suspense by pitting him against what feels like a tough situation.

    My only real complaint is the portrayal of Harry's daughter. unless I misunderstand the time line, by this point in the series she should be about 10 or 12 years old but is written and performed like someone more likely to be 5 or 6.

    "What can i say - its complicated."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Skin Game to be better than the print version?

    Have not read the print version.


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

    When dresden found out that the parasite was actually a Spirit of intellect created by him and Lash. Mab called it a parasite - some do.


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

    Dresden


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

    my inner me is a sarcastic asshole. I need to listen to him more.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep writing. This is gonna be good.

    "Best Dresden book since Grave Peril"

    I loved the heist feel and felt the flow of this one was excellent. So much easier to get into compared to the over the top Cold Days. Loved this!

    "Dang...just DANG!!!"

    I can't emphasize enough how this series just gets better and better! This one had so much action, yet a ton of character development, as well. And, now that I'm finally caught up with the series (drats!), I'm just a little miserable that I'll have to wait months (if not a full year!) to purchase the next installment, "Peace Talks". Also, as I have done with this entire series...since book 4 - oh, and also not book 13...I listened to the audiobook version. James Marsters continues to impress and entertain. I think his range and quality of voices is improving/increasing. So, it was also an amazing listen! But, in the interim, perhaps I can now go back and check out Butcher's "Codex Alera" series? Still, I can't wait to see how THIS plotline continues to unravel!
