    If your listening to this book then you already know how fantastic (in more than one sense of the word) this series is.
    Harry Dresden and James Marsters are a match made in Heaven!!
    I can only thank Jim Butcher for filling my time with such consistently brilliant writing!
    Long may Harry last and long may he continue getting himself in mountains of trouble!!

    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.

    I will make this shortish and hopefully sweet!
    If you like zombie fiction buy this book and if you don't and zombies are not your thing then I would still be inclined to recommend this tale of love,loyalty and tragedy.
    Of course this is a work of fiction based around the zombie apocalypse but it is so character driven you almost forget in parts that the walking dead are roaming the earth! There are so many zombie based books around that follow a similar premise that as much as I am a fan of our reanimated foes, I do find that I am rarely surprised. I would say that the main focus of this book is the relationships between the characters, be that with friends, family or lovers, good, bad and indifferent. Its not sloppy or cheesy, its very honest and full of heightened emotion (as it would be if the world was ending) at times I really wanted to hit and scream at certain characters and I did cry at other moments.
    It still has a fair amount of brutal bits and I am surprised its been placed as a teenage book, there are no teenagers in it! Its definitely for adults.
    Good solid narration by Julia Whelan brings together I well written and characterised piece that keeps you engaged and hopeful until the end........ of the world and after, there has to be more.
    More than worth a credit.

    Cassie Forrest isn't surprised to learn that the day she's decided to get her life together is also the day the world ends. After all, she's been on a self-imposed losing streak since her survivalist parents died: she's stopped painting, broken off her engagement to Adrian and dated a real jerk. Rectifying her mistakes has to wait, however, because Cassie and her friends have just enough time to escape Brooklyn for her parents' cabin before Bornavirus LX turns them into zombies, too.

    This going to be a short review as if you are listening to this then you must certainly habe read the other twelve volumes (if not, you really need to. If you have read them and never listened, then this will not apply) I love Harry and Jim Butchers Dresden Files has never failed to deliver a top quality story full of genius and chaos. I highly recommend all of these books to anyone who loves a ripping yarn and a wonderful cast of characters.
    I have to mention the change of narrator in this volume, as we all know the fantastic James Marsters has given voice to all of the other twelve books and he is quite frankly awesome. This instalment has a new narrator which I have to say did put me off for a while, but I thought I would chance it and listen anyway.Where I cannot say that I liked the new narrator anywhere near as much, this is through no fault of the voice actor, who gives a very solid and well characterised performance. I think the slight problem is because I have listened to hours and hours of another performer acting out these characters.
    I do hope that James Marsters will return! However I still really enjoyed book 13 of this fantastic series.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    When historian Diana Bishop opens an alchemical manuscript in the Bodleian Library, it's an unwelcome intrusion of magic into her carefully ordered life. Though Diana is a witch of impeccable lineage, the violent death of her parents while she was still a child convinced her that human fear is more potent than any witchcraft. Now Diana has unwittingly exposed herself to a world she's kept at bay for years; one of powerful witches, creative, destructive daemons and long-lived vampires.

But now, her weapons are outdated and her solid-state armour nothing more than a burden on her colossal hull. She floats in permanent orbit near Earth, a dumping ground for the officers and crew the Royal Navy wishes to keep out of the public eye. But when a deadly alien threat appears, the modern starships built by humanity are no match for the powerful alien weapons.

    George R.R. Martin's superb and highly acclaimed epic fantasy A Song of Ice and Fire continues with the third in the series A Storm of Swords. There is passion here, and misery and charm, grandeur and squalor, tragedy, nobility and courage. Unabridged and split into two parts. The Seven Kingdoms are divided by revolt and blood feud, and winter approaches like an angry beast. Beyond the Northern borders, wildlings leave their villages to gather in the ice and stone wasteland of the Frostfangs.

    Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive-and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first. But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills-and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit-he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?"

    Loren has grown up a simple woodsman's daughter, raised by hateful parents in a village too small to warrant a name. But all her life she has dreamed of escape, of roaming the world as Nightblade, a master thief who restores balance between the powerful rich and the downtrodden poor. When a fugitive wizard passes through her town on the run from the law, Loren seizes her chance. But the world beyond her village is more complicated and more dangerous than she could ever have imagined.
