Description

Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, is about to have a very bad day. 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.

This time, it's worse than that. Mab's involved Harry in a smash-and-grab heist run by one of his most despised enemies, to recover the literal Holy Grail from the vaults of the greatest treasure horde in the world - which belongs to the one and only Hades, Lord of the Underworld.

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....

Great heist story

This is the final book in the Dresden Files (so far) and is a reread, hoping that rumours of the next book coming this year are true.
Harry faces overwhelming odds as he is loaned out by Mab to one of his arch enemies to assist in the heist of a valuable artifact.
Good story telling. James Marsters does a super job narrating, as usual.

Another solid addition to the Dresden Files.

An excellent reading by the voice of Harry Dresden (I've decided that is now James Marsters persona). I've blitzed through 7gh all 15 audio books in the main series this past month and love them all.

Another fantastic read

This was as expected awesome. As always Jim Butcher is a genius and brings the reader to a remarkable world and story. James Master does a great performance as usual and is well suited to the story. A must listen book :)

Best Dresden book yet!

One of the best Dresden Files books in the series. Liked how it brings back so many characters from previous books and intertwines them in ways I didn't see coming.

He nailed Dresden again!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Hell's Bells man!

Will not disappoint

Jim Butcher delivers another fantastic Dresden file. This book completes brings a couple of long story arcs to a satisfying and in some cases surprising close, only to throw a few more spanners in the works and leave us eagerly anticipating the next chapter.

There is some excellent character development with moments to both cringe and cheer for our favourite good guys. Plus plenty of Dresden wit and very up to date pop culture references to keep us amused, one in particular almost groan worthy but both hilarious and uplifting at the same time.

As always five stars for James Masters narration. Flawless character definition, comedic timing and every emotion where it should be.

The only flaw is the time we will now have to wait for the story to continue.

The Denarians return

Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only wizard-for-hire and Knight of the Winter Court is back for more supernatural action. This time he is called upon by Queen Mab to assist in breaking into the most heavily fortified vault in existence: the personal vault of Hades, Lord of the Underworld. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Harry must ally himself with Nicodemus and the Denarians in the heist, courtesy of a debt required to be repayed by Mab to the fallen angel.

The story starts slower than is usual for the series, with a lot of character introductions and planning of the heist. It isn’t until the last third of the book that the mayhem the series is known for breaks out, and once we get there it is worth the ride. Harry is as wise-cracking in his smartassery as always and we even see the return of an old friend to watch his back.

Marsters is back to narrate again and does a steller job as always. He is hands down one of the best in the business and his personality lends every character a lot of weight. But he really shines when voicing Dresden. His voice has just the right tone to convey every nuance of the character. Now the arduous wait for the next novel begins…

A different but fulfilling Dresden

This book is somewhat different from other Dresden books as Harry is faced with opposition hr can not simply smash his way through. But it works very well and combines fairys, angels and other creatures in an indiana Jones like setting. I like the way Harry is trying to contemplate if he still is one of the good guys as self reflection isn't always his strong suit.
As always a perfect delivery of Masters who really is! the voice of Dresden.
