When my old friend Jim Walker asks me to fly up to Canada and take a look at a strange murder case, it sounds like a good excuse for barbecue and brewskis.
But the party gets crashed by a pit-load of demons and things take a turn for the worse. Throw a faerie queen and a couple of ancient vampires into the mix and you've got a recipe for disaster.
Time to sharpen the stakes and start slaying the undead.
Because if you gaze long into a vampire's eyes, the vampire gazes also into you.

"Slow to ramp to but finishes strong"
It took a while for the story to really get going this time but I was pleased when it did. Another strong book in the series.
"Small but Still Worth It"
I've now listened to all four books available in this series to date. I'm filing a separate but concurring opinion with the majority of listeners because I'm not a fan of the Dresden series.
in comparison to Monster Hunter International, this series has far less punch. it also leaves you wondering why character relationships are so fraught. Finally, i also find myself wondering why the main character is so incurious and sometimes downright suspicious of his own magic powers.
Nevertheless, it's fun to listen to and narrator does a nice job in voicing both male and female characters. This series still has piotential to become more and i hope it does.
"Great mix of action, friendship and magic"
I love the way Wright presents characters with depth; Alec's regular introspection to check his value system when he makes decisions not only reveals his motivations, it also develops the main character and moves the story forward. The ongoing and renewed friendships are realistic and heartwarming. Love the magic and how he weaves the storyline into existing legend. Great job! Looking forward to the next Harbinger novel.
"Always leaves you hanging!"
I've really enjoyed this series, and can't wait til the next one but man, does the author love to mess with readers with these continuing plot threads! Engaging characters and fast paced, fun build up of tension, all make me anticipate more!
I struggled with some parts, but mostly because i see the queens of fairy a little differently.
Over all it was a good read, and I'm looking forward to the next one.
It was okay, but, not as good as the first three books in the series.
