The tale begins when a magical force concentrates energy and blows up a building in Chicago. The city's only wizard, Harry Dresden, is drafted into action by canny portions of the Chicago PD. In his chatty first-person style, author Butcher describes a modern world filled with hidden but active esoteric creatures, forces, and societies--vampires, for example. James Marsters, who has narrated other installments in Butcher's Dresden Files series and who appeared in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel," is eerily right for this audiobook. If any negative criticism applies at all, it is that sometimes he speaks so softly that traffic noises would drown him out. Listen to his version of Bob, the apparition in a skull. It's spot-on.
