Dresden Files Fanmix: Central Trilogy
The trio of Changes, Ghost Story, and Cold Days are the midpoint of The Dresden Files, and are often considered a "central trilogy," because they represent huge transformations for different aspects of his character. In Changes, his world; in Ghost Story, his body; and in Cold Days, his soul.
I've been tinkering around with this fanmix for a while now, and I still consider it a work in progress, but I figure it's finally time to post it.
Enjoy! If you dig a song, be sure to support the artist by buying the song or CD on Amazon or iTunes.
Oh, and SPOILER WARNING for all three books, duh.
