Publisher's Summary

Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden is a very powerful wizard and a dedicated private eye. He is also a wise cracking trouble magnet. Fueled by a tempest of guilt, sleep deprivation, malnutrition, bad temper and frankly awful personal grooming. Harry is hurtling toward oblivion. According to Harry that is nobody's business but his own. The Winter Queen of Faerie manipulates him into accepting a case to solve a murder and stop a war between the courts of Summer and Winter that could have literally earth shattering consequences. His own soul is up for grabs. Dresden must dig deep to discover that at time a willingness to accept a little help from your friends, be they a cub pack of werewolves, old loves in sheep's clothing, or a battalion of pizza loving dewdrop fairies, is a very good thing.

An excellent audiobook

This is the fourth book in the \"Dresden Files\" series and it is right up to the high standard of the first three. New characters are introduced, existing characters developed in an interesting way and the fantasy background is widened very imaginatively. And the story simply hurtles along with unstoppable momentum, building to a terrific climax. All narrated superbly by James Marsters. Brilliant stuff and strongly recommended. Let's hope that Audible UK acquires the other books in the series, which are available to US readers on theAudible.com site.

Best of writing with best narration = awesome!

Combine Jim Butcher's great writing with James Marsters' unmatched narration and you end up with a great book in a fantastic series - if you like books set in what is close to our world, but with the fantasy elements of magic, fairies, vampires & other monsters, then this is the series for you!

Jim Butcher's is brilliant at writing characters, setting the scenes and action, giving a fabulous book series, his descriptions come to life on the page, but the way that they're read in these books is just amazing

I can't imagine a better narrator than James Marsters, the variety of characterisations he brings to the characters, plus the pacing of the way he reads the variety from romantic scenes to action, he is truly the best narrator that I've ever heard in the decades that I've listened to audio books!

If only all books on here were written as well, and read as well, then we would be spoiled, but alas, most are nowhere near this good - I'm surprised that authors aren't clamoring to get James to read their books - after his work on Buffy & Angel brought him to the public's knowledge, plus his other work on stage & screen, he is a chameleon, and it comes through in his readings - you have to listen to his audio renditions to understand how amazing he is, and how bad a lot of the others are!
