Publisher's Summary

Meet Harry Dresden, Chicago's first (and only) Wizard PI. Turns out the "everyday" world is full of strange and magical things - and most of them don't play well with humans. That's where Harry comes in.
A bargain made with the Queen of Air and Darkness has forced Dresden into a new job: professional killer. His first task is to bring death to an immortal. As if that wasn't hard enough, Dresden learns of a danger to Demonreach, the living island hidden upon Lake Michigan. A danger that could destroy billions and land Dresden in the deepest trouble he has ever known.
Dresden has only 24 hours to gather the allies he has left and prevent a cataclysm - all while the power he bargained to get, but never meant to keep, lays siege to his very soul. Magic - it can get a guy killed.

Jim Butcher nails it again!

I cant wait for the next book. I only found the Dresden files books 3 weeks ago after reading a review here. I have since listened to all 14 books and they are truly brilliant gripping edge of your seat story lines with fantastic laugh out loud moments, delivered flawlessly by James Masters. If your new to the life of Harry Dresden then get stuck in you wont regret it.

Like old shoes, comftable but not that smart.

Okay firstly I really enjoyed this audio book, the performance as always was brilliant. He is Harry Dresden.

As to the story, I love the characters and really like hanging out with them, I enjoy the pace and interactions. As to the plot - hmmm I could not really give a fig about what was going on, I was concerned of course for the characters I love but sadly the series has become formulaic. I will keep coming back probably forever but for the characters not the story, if this was my first entry into the series I would probably not return.

If this is going to be you first entrance into the series, stop turn around and begin with Storm Front. Maybe four stars was generous.....
