“You aren’t going to like me very much.”
An ideal gateway into fantasy for crime story fans, Skin Game by Jim Butcher is a thrilling heist adventure with Chicago’s only professional wizard leading the gang. Narrator James Marsters is nothing short of spellbinding in telling the smart, twisty, and witty tale of a motley crew under duress breaking into the vault of Hades for the literal Holy Grail.

From long days reading under a hot sun to curling up in the corner of a chilly library with a new book to trying to sneak a few extra pages in while you’re in line at the grocery store, we all approach reading a little differently in the summer! However, one thing remains the same. Summer is a great time for books, especially when you can win prizes for reading through your library’s adult summer reading program! Sign-up to embark on your next reading adventure today.
