Publisher's Summary

Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden has had a rough couple of weeks. As the only openly practicing professional wizard in the Chicago area, he has squared off against a multitude of supernatural bad guys. Harry has won the day against demons, poltergeists, sorcerers, trolls, vampires, werewolves, and even an evil faerie godmother. You might think nothing could spook him. You would be wrong.

Something is stirring up angry apparitions all over town. Something that can break all the laws of supernatural physics. Something that doesnt like Harry. His closest friends are being targeted. The net is closing in. Harry must find a solution soon or find this is one Nightmare from which he will never waken.

    "Slowly declining series"

    I enjoyed the first Dresden book - enough that I bought the next two books. Book 2 was not as good as the first but I enjoyed the role Harry had with the police department, Murphy, Susan,and of course, Bob. I really looked forward to book 3. The book narration opens with the author's note that the theme of the series shifts at book 3 and gives the impression that the books to follow with continue in the same manner. If the other books are like Grave Peril, and I assume they are, I'm finished. Without giving always spoilers, the introduction of new characters without foundation is a cheap ploy for authors to get you to buy future books in hope that you will find out their backstory and understand their motivations. Michael and Harry's godmother are two such characters. I kept wondering if I had missed a book but no, I read them in order. Also, the repetitive dialogue (note to author - I get it, soul gazes are bad, Harry always feels responsible for everyone, and he is always tired) made me actually yell at my iPod that I've heard it all before. Some of the descriptions of what Harry was feeling went on so long I didn't think they would ever end. And I didn't like the ending. Why can't heroes have a happy home life? Is there some literary rule that you must create tension by threatening or removing any stable romantic interest? As far as the performance, please lay off the heavy breathing and gasping. No wonder Harry is always tired, he can't breathe properly. Temper the dramatics. But that could be said to the author also.

    "Great story, good voice, a bit mumbly though"

    The story was very engaging, easy enough to follow, and overall very entertaining. The narration was good, but often got quiet and tended to become almost mumbling. It shouldn't be a problem if you're on headphones, but if you listen in the car (as I do) it becomes difficult to hear and understand at times.

    "A bit forced"

    I can't help but feel that Biancas wrath was forced too hard. As if it was merely the only way the author could justify breaking up Harry and Susan. Had he done this a book or two from now, the impact would have been so much stronger since then we'd be very much emotionally invested in her.

    "Best story in the series so far."

    I started listening to the stories from the beginning and this is the best one so far. James does an amazing job narrating.

    "Loved it"

    I loved reading the books originally, and Marster's voicing really brings the characters to life.

    "rushed production of a great tale."

    Great story, but the whispering and shouting nearly blew out my speakers. I had to have to volume up to hear the main character's thoughts and then the actor would roar and scream. This needed a better mastering to level out the volume.

    "One of the best stories and voices!"

    This story is a fun and quick moving tale of magic and monsters, fairies and ghosts. If you're looking to jump in to the middle of this series start here and hang on tight!

    "James Marsters is the perfect storyteller!"

    I enjoyed listening to this Dresden Files audio book. This is the kind of urban fantasy that should get more attention in the literary world.
