I was impressed at how far the author has taken the character Harry Dresden from his initial first book.
I really like James Marsters narrating and I love paranormal fantasy books!
Harry Dresden is a supernatural hero. In Cold Days he has to save not just Chicago from an all out apocalypse but the whole world. He is the Winter Knight and works for Mab the Queen of Air and darkness of Arctis Tor now. He also has a special relationship with The Island called Demonreach . Somehow he is made the WARDEN of a prison there. I guess a curse was set to happen here and the prison was going to explode and the bad guys would be released on the city of Chicago unless Harry can stop it. The Island’s ‘WELL’ was created by Merlin . Anyway Maeve, Mab’s daughter, is a wicked bitch , and Harry is ordered to kill her.
Harry does an excellent job at making me laugh. He was hilarious inside the mountain talking to Demonreach Lol! …something about a parasite inside Harry’s brain. ya. gulp. It seems like he might turn evil. Even his girlfriend Karrin talks about important negative “factors” about their relationship and how even if he does turn “bad” she will follow him to hell if she has to. awwww ain’t that sweet.
I loved the tiny character Toot-toot and Bob, the talking skull, and Lacuna. She seemed so sweet to me :p. Harry’s old friends like Mac the bartender was back and Thomas his vampire brother.
All in all it was a fun fast and exciting read and you should read the entire series 🙂
You can’t keep a good wizard down – even when he wants to stay that way.
For years, Harry Dresden has been Chicago’s only professional wizard, but a bargain made in desperation with the Queen of Air and Darkness has forced him into a new job: professional killer.
Mab, the mother of wicked faeries, has restored the mostly-dead wizard to health, and dispatches him upon his first mission – to bring death to an immortal. Even as he grapples with the impossible task, Dresden learns of a looming danger to Demonreach, the living island hidden upon Lake Michigan, a place whose true purpose and dark potential have the potential to destroy billions and to land Dresden in the deepest trouble he has ever known – even deeper than being dead. How messed up is that?
Beset by his new enemies and hounded by the old, Dresden has only twenty four hours to reconnect with his old allies, prevent a cataclysm and do the impossible – all while the power he bargained to get – but never meant to keep – lays siege to his very soul.
Magic. It can get a guy killed.
