The voice acting was well done and I felt the inflection was spot on.
My only issues with the work are the boringly slow pace, jarring view point jumps, and sparse plot points. It has moments where things are very tense and you get excited that something serious is going to happen; the it continues quietly. The ending too is quiet, desperate, yet I'm glad it's over.

As some one new to space military novel...

The performance of the voice actor was of the high level of quality I expect, the story how ever I some times found a little disconnected and John Perry's military prowess comes just a little too easily. I think I would find it more enjoyable to see him struggle more and make a few more mistakes. Other wise a good novel.

Oh geez

The heaviest and most heart wrenching book in the Dresden files so far. Really can't wait to get to the next in the line up.

overall another great entry in Dresden files

the only oddity I feel like commenting on is James doing a new voice for some reoccurring characters. Minor gripe really but it does make me think twice about who's talking when suddenly concade or Thomas is speaking with a noticeable accent when they didn't previously.

very good

I like seeing the progression that Harry makes at the end of his books and they always keeping me excited for the next one.

still a solid listen, but...

all in all still a good story from Jim and a good edition to the Dresden files, but for some reason I felt the Vampire and the shroud plot lines didn't mesh well, while I do understand their separation it still felt jarring being in the middle of a hunt for the shroud and then immediately going off to deal with Vampire stuff. or conversely, making progress with Vampire stuff and then being sucked into a shroud hunt.

really can't complain about this book at all, it covers all the familiar bases as the last books in way that's still engaging, story is of the quality you'd expect from J Butcher, and Marsters does an equally satisfying performance, with an ending feels good. it's nice to see Harry grow a little bit over the course of each novel.

Jim Butcher does it again

The narration is cleaner, the story feels more original, the chapter format is just flat out better. if you enjoyed stormfront you will like this installment as well.

very good,

my only gripe is that early on in the book the narrator flubs words on 2 occasions that I noticed. it didn't take away from my overall enjoyment, but this is the first time experienced that in an audio book. Would still recommend this to others however
