    " this book sets a great scene for the lengths Harry will go. also, that he is finally learning to broaden his thinking and plans "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chaos | 2/17/2014

    " Another fantastic, frantic-paced mystery! I especially like Mouse's developing character and the continuing inclusion of the Za-Lord's Guard. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jon Bristow | 2/8/2014

    " Whoa, just as I was starting to doubt Mr. Butcher's interest in his own series (I'd been put off by the three books around Dead Beat), but after White Night and this book, I'm champing at the bit to catch up to the next book, Changes. It just... WORKS this time. Harry is back in the "At least 80% in the right, no questions" camp and asses are being kicked and names are being taken. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew Ciarvella | 2/3/2014

    " The first book I've read of the Dresden files (which I know is weird, since it's the latest in the series.) An excellent read; I'm definitely going to look into more of this author's work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wilford | 1/24/2014

    " Excellent addition to "The Dresden Files" universe by Jim Butcher. I was able to completely read this novel within two days it was so good. I highly recommend this to any Dresden fan. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mandy | 1/17/2014

    " This is one of Jim Butcher's best! I can't say for certain that it's my favorite because it's been so long since I've read some of the earlier books so it's hard to compare, but it's definetly high on my list. Never once was I bored and it really plays with your emotions, especially at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 11/5/2013

    " So this was the first Dresden book where I knew who the bad guy was pretty much as soon as they were introduced. The story took some great turns and was a solid ride, nonetheless. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Oni | 10/24/2013

    " I can't help despising and loving you at the same time, Dresden. Like, you're the epitome of all things that make a great hero, for me, and all that bullshit that makes me want to break persons nose, and never read another book with you in it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Lewys | 10/21/2013

    " Once again, Mr. Butcher tops the book before. This book is one hell of a ride. Bring an oxygen tank, because you'll need it to catch your breath. Starting the next book makes me a little uneasy. Don't worry. I'll do it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel | 10/19/2013

    " It was an awesome book, funny, well written and I really enjoyed it. If you haven't checked out Butcher's Dresden books, give it a shot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 10/1/2013

    " Another fine entry in the Dresden series. The skinwalker was an exceptionally scary opponent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Perry | 9/21/2013

    " Intense read. I think it's he best of the series so far. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 William Thomas | 9/7/2013

    " Jim Butcher writes a namby-pamby fantasy novel where the main character says "frickin" and is as watered down and bland as can be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Syrdarya | 9/4/2013

    " I always love the Harry Dresden books and this one was particularly interesting to me because we got to find out more about the senior Wardens in this book. "

    " Book eleven (?) and still a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annette Davis | 3/13/2013

    " Read like a transitional book in the series. The plot was intricate enough to make me read slowly and it was nice for Molly to earn her keep. However, if I can guess the traitor, Butcher is too obvious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Penny | 5/27/2012

    " The continuing story of Harry Dresden is just as good as the first one. I can see this becoming a TV series someday. There is certainly enough action, fantasy, and adventure to keep us all reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vampiress_demitri | 2/13/2012

    " War or peace? Harry must decide! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen3n | 10/29/2011

    " A pretty good book in a very good series. For urban fantasy, this is one of the best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanna | 10/14/2011

    " Mr. Butcher did not disappoint. Ending was a little upsetting, but life can't always be roses. Still loving Harry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorebound | 8/22/2011

    " One of the best of the later Dresdens!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ken | 5/24/2011

    " More of the same. Style quirks I used to find amusing are getting annoying. Mr. Butcher should wrap up this series while he's ahead. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 5/18/2011

    " Continues to build upon the interesting universe that has been established in previous novels, but I don't have any real commentary that wouldn't be a summary of the narrative. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 5/11/2011

    " After a slow start, these books are finally emotionally engrossing. Can't wait to read Changes,but will then have to wait two months for the next one, ack! "

    " This one had some hanging plot ends somewhat akin to series continuity errors, but MAN do I ever love these books. I wish I would never run out of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meggie | 4/21/2011

    " Now, this was really tragic and dark part of this series. Morgan died and Harry's brother Tomas got tortured...Jeez Jim, you don't do anything half hearted, do you ? Anyway in general this part was really enjoyable full of action, good analogues and pulling plot. HIGHLY recommended book!! "

About the Author
Author Jim Butcher

Jim Butcher is a #1 New York Times bestselling author. He read his first fantasy novel when he was seven years old—The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. By the time he turned eight, he’d added the rest of the Narnia books, the Chronicles of Prydain, every book about Star Wars he could find, a great many Star Trek novels, and The Lord of the Rings to his count. He was pretty much doomed from the start. Love of fantasy drew him toward a fairly eclectic spread of interests: horseback riding, archery, martial arts, costuming, music, and theater. He played a lot of role-playing games, a lot of fantasy-based tactical computer games, and eventually got into live-action role-play. He took up writing to be able to produce fantasy novels with swords and horses in them, and determinedly wrote terrible fantasy books until, just to prove a point to his writing teacher, he decided to take every piece of her advice. He was certain that once she saw what hideous art it produced, she would be proven wrong and repent the error of her ways. The result was the Dresden Files. She has not yet admitted her mistake and recanted her philosophy on writing. Jim stands accused of writing the Dresden Files and the Codex Alera. He has plead insanity, but the jury is still out on that one.
