Worth the wait!

I was determined to listen to the Dresden series in order, so it was a pleasant surprise when books 6 & 7 became available months earlier than expected! Blood Rites features a fairly new and interesting character, Kincaid the bodyguard of the Archive. I'm looking forward to hearing more of his story in future books. Love the addition of Mouse!

James Marsters sounds more polished and "edited" than in the earlier books, but the books are becoming more complex and polished as well. It's still a fine matching of narrator and author.

another terrific installment in the series...

...and another excellent audiobook performance by James Marsters, who really brings the series to life.

When Harry's incubus friend Thomas calls in a favor, Harry finds himself working on the set of a porn movie, trying to figure out who...or what...is trying to close down the production by killing off the film's female stars. Of course, there are many, many complications, high danger, White Court vampire intrigues, and of course, Jim Butcher's trademark witty dialogue.

A thoroughly entertaining audiobook!

These books get better and better!

The Dresden Files started off pretty weak (wasn't overly keen on the first two books) but they held a certain appeal that I couldn't quite put my finger on, so I kept on reading. Butcher's writing has improved dramatically and his narratives have become consistantly more complex and dynamic with every book. Dresden's cheesy one liners, which I initially put down to bad writing, have actually grown on me and have become an integral part of his character, making him unique and likeable and ultimately believable.

Great book favourite so far

Characters and story move faster than the last book and feels like a big step forward for the series having characters come back and grow.
