    Love Jim Butcher and Kate Reading does the book justice. At some point, I forgot it was one reader and just recognized the character's voices.

    i am reviewing after having finished the whole series. this first book seems a little slow to get going, as it seems to skip between several characters and settings, but like a glorious tapestry these individual threads come together to weave a world that my imagination completely immersed itself in by books end. i love kate reading\'s interpretations of the characters and how each one has a distinct voice, so much that even if there\'s no written indication i could discern who was speaking through the narrators interpretation.
