Description

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.

Spike makes good

As I listened to this audiobook, I couldn't help but picture the character James Marsters played in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". He brought the characters to life without doing obnoxious falsetto voices for the female characters as so many other readers do. I have read all the Dresden books in print thus far, and while I enjoyed reading this book at the time, I felt much more "in" the story while listening to this production. I listened to "Storm Front" before this one, and the reading of this audiobook is much more enjoyable than "Storm Front" because of Marsters' enthusiastic performance. The timing is great, the characters are distinguishable without being obnoxious and there is just enough acting to make it really exciting. I'll concede that there were some mispronounciations but not enough to really detract from the story. I listen to lots of audiobooks and this one I will recommend to everyone!

Dresden just keeps getting better

I've read the first two Dresden novels - which were good. But this one really kicks things into high gear. There's much more character development than previously. I didn't find myself frustrated with Dresden as much for walking idiotically into impossible situations and taking responsibility for everyone's problems. The reader, Mr. Marsters, is much more polished here than in previous outings, where he seemed to be sighing between every sentence. He continues to need editing...I was constantly catching him mispronouncing words (e.g. he would say "ruins" when he meant "runes"; or "retched" when he meant "wretched.") Otherwise, he is a good reader, and I hear than in future books, he improves quite a bit. Looking forward to Book 4.

Bases are loaded, and he knocks it out of park

This is definitely the best so far, and James Marsters is Harry Dresden without a doubt. I don't even want to read one of this series, cause I don't think I will enjoy it half as much.
This installment introduces a lot of new characters, and we hear more from Bob in this one. Thomas and Michael are brought in, each with their own special appeal. Susan is more developed with this story. All and all it's a new cast of very intriguing characters, with non stop action of Harry getting into one bad situation, only getting out of it by getting into a worse one. You just can't go wrong with this series if you like things that go bump in the night with a side dish of humor.

'I licked my lips and tried again'

me too.
the plot becomes more complex in 'Grave Peril', and I loved the introduction of Michael as well as godmother. This story held my attention. Unlike other reviewers I find James Masters' breathiness adds to Harry's persona. It fits.
Even the Vampires develop some personalities.
My expectation is these stories will get better and better.

Meh...

Funny, but too contrived. There was always something else happening that the main character just didn't see coming. It was as if the author had ideas for five plots and tried to cram them all into one book. Thanks for the laughs, but I don't think I'll come back for seconds.

I love Harry

I just found Jim Butchers wonderful world of sourcerers, vampires, wizards and all that goes bump in the night. The heroes are charming, funny,soulful and original. The story lines are exciting and they keep your interest from page one to the final word. I plan to purchase the entire set.

LOVED IT!

You know when you are reading a story and you are thinking, "There is just NO way the characters can get out of this jam!! They are for sure going to die!!" And part of your brain knows that they can't die, because there are like, a bajillion more books in the series, but the action is so intense that you are at the edge of your seat, trying to figure out how the MCs are going to get out of that mess? That is what this book was for me.

I'll admit, this one has a rocky start. The story takes off in the middle of an action scene and then backtracks and explains how Harry got there a few pages later. However, I think this was one of the most intense books in the series, and I was totally riveted the entire time.

A HUGE factor in my rating was the AWESOME narration by one of my faves, James Marsters. He is one of the few narrators that I love, even though he doesn't do separate voices for each of the characters. He is so emotive, so intense, so perfectly Harry Dresden, that I am spellbound by his performance.

Honestly, I don't know if I would like this series as much in ebook or paperback form. There is a magic to it in the audiobook format that I think would be very hard to replicate.

Excellent, just excellent. Can't wait for the next.

Harry Dresden Stirs the Hornet's Nest

What did you love best about Grave Peril?

I liked the interaction between Harry and his friends and fellow crime fighters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Harry is a great character...he's gifted with magic, conflicted about people and how and when to use his magic, he's bothered by the council that rules the wizards, his fairy godmother is wicked....Harry has a wry sense of humor and a sense of the absurd.

What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

I like James Marsters performance because he portrays Harry perfectly--just as I imagine him. The wry humor, the inflections in his voice. It would be great if James Marsters could star as Harry Dresden in a movie--he would be perfect.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The vampire ball was interesting...also, the aftermath of the ball and the happenings with poor Susan Rodriguez.

Any additional comments?

No. Good, solid story. I highly recommend this series to my friends, it's great on audiobook.

Harry Dresden rocks!

I am completely hooked on this series. I first heard of Dresden through a television show called The Dresden Files, which, while I enjoyed the characters of Dresden and Bob, I felt that the rest of the show was a little two-dimensional. The books, however, are much more rounded with excellent character development. James Marsters' narration is excellent as well.

very disappointed in the story line

What disappointed you about Grave Peril?

After enjoying the first two books in the series I found the plot of this one a let down

Perfekte Mischung aus Spannung und Humor

Okay, ich gestehe, dass ich eh schon alle Dresden Files Bücher gelesen habe. Aber warum? Weil sie sehr gut sind, Jim Butcher ist einer der wenigen Männer im urban fantasy Bereich und garantiert in den Top3 ob Mann oder Frau. Er schafft es einen Zauberer zu kreieren, der mit Alltagsproblemem kämpft wie zB das die moderne Elektronik bei ihm den Geist aufgibt. Folge: stehenbleibende Aufzüge, kein Kühlschrank und kein Gasherd, alles nach dem Käfer gebaute geht als Auto auch nicht bei ihm. Er hat einen schlechten Ruf beim Zaubererrat, verdient sein Geld for hire mehr schlecht als recht und stolpert von einer gefährlichen Situation in die nächste. Harry Dresden ist ein aufrechter Kerl, der wirklich versucht, dass richtige zu tun. Dass er eine freche Klappe hat, sorgt beim Leser für viel Vergnügen und bei seinen gefährlichen Gegnern für große persönliche Verärgerung- Dieser Fall, der dritte ist der erste echte Harry Dresden, die beiden davor sind zum Aufwärmen. Fast alle Figuren sind dabei, gefährliche Vampire, die undurchsichtige, aber sehr gefährlichen Fee Lea. Michael, "the knight", Father Forthill und ein sehr bösartiger Geist/ Dämon, der Geister versklavt und Menschen in ihren Träumen zerstört. Ein harter Gegner und viel Action ist angesagt. PLUS die wunderbare Stimme von James Marsters, der mal Spike aus Buffy war und Harry Dresden so viel Leben einhaucht, dass er sogar Sex Appeal entwickelt, was ich in den Büchern nie bemerkte... EIn Muss für alle Fans der urban fantasy.

absolutely magnificent

The voice of James Masters is addictive. The way he is reading the amazing books from Jim Butcher one gets sucked into the world of wizards, vampires, ghosts and other creatures of the night. It is always an effort to stop, in order to get some sleep. I truly hope that there will be many, many more books like these!!

spooky

Würden Sie Grave Peril noch mal anhören? Warum?

Ich würde es anhören, damit ich die tolle, sexy Stimme von James Marsters noch einmal hören kann. Sonst werde ich wohl eher andere Bücher der Reihe hören.

Was würden Sie an der Handlung ändern, um das Hörbuch für Sie unterhaltsamer zu machen?

Ich würde Murphy noch mehr einbauen. Sie und Harry sind ein gutes Team. Auch würde ich Harry ein wenig aktiver und mächtiger machen. Er ist viel zu sehr Spielball der anderen.

Welche Szene hat Ihnen am besten gefallen?

Alle Szenen, in denen Thomas auftauchte. Der Vampir mit guten Absichten (auf jeden Fall besseren Absichten als Bianca) lockert mit seinen Sprüchen und lockeren Art die düstere Stimmung auf.

Hätten Sie das Hörbuch am liebsten in einem Rutsch durchgehört?

Ja, das hätte ich. Dann hätte ich der Handlung bestimmt besser folgen können.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Mir hat der erste Teil viel besser gefallen. Bei grave Peril war so viel Handlung, die von einem zum anderen sprang und mir ziellos vorkam. Aber Harry ist trotzdem noch eine tolle Figur. Seine Sprüche sind einfach klasse. Die Welt, die Butcher erschaffen hat, ist auch fantastisch, detaillreich und spannend.

Die Albträume eines Prügelknaben

Der Reiz der Harry-Dresden-Reihe war für mich bisher, dass da das Motiv des Private Eye sehr elegant mit Magie verknüpft wurde. In dieser Folge liegen die Dinge aber anders: der Held ist nur noch der Prügelknabe für alle möglichen magischen Gegner und es ist gegen Ende eigentlich nur noch ein durchlaufender Albtraum.

Eingangs spricht Jim Butcher ein Vorwort des Inhalts, das mit diesem Buch die Reihe eigentlich neu beginnt. Ich hoffe nicht und das er eher zum Stil der ersten beiden Bände zurückkehrt, denn sonst kann ich verzichten.

Beautiful craving

The vampire lore is intriguing and always packed up in an exciting fashion. I felt reminded a lot of one of my favourite adventure games (Blackwell series) as spooks, peace and war are topics in this novel.

einschläfernd

Die Geschichte wäre vielleicht ineressant, aber der Leser trägt sie so emotionslos und träge vor, dass man die Lust verliert.
