Another very satisfying entry in the Harry Dresden series. Reading this made me mentally flail a bit that I only have 3 more books in this series, plus the short story collection, before I'm all caught up.

I'm loving the further developments in Harry's personality, both from him adjusting to his life as a mentor and as a Warden. While his humor is still intact, and he's most definitely still a smart-ass, I'm liking the darker undertones that are showing up due to him getting frustrated and tired of the horrible things happening around him. So far, he's staying as a believable hero, and the maturing of his character is coming along quite nice.

The beginning plot here, involving a serial killer murdering women magic users in ways that make it look like suicides, was an interesting lead-up to the main action (because, as anyone who as read any books in this series, things always get a lot more complicated as the story progresses). I was happy to see a lot of the White Court of vampires returning, and naturally was happy to see more Thomas growth.

Mike (the Paladin) Again, high 5, I love the Dresden books. Have you checked out the Dresden group here? I just thought of checking this week, and they only have something like 30 members.

Take your time as you read the next books...if you time it right you could finish about the time Ghost Story is released next year, or at least not have too long to wait. I'm "reading" (listening to) all of them again in my audio collection hanging on till it's released. I have Side Jobs: Stories From the Dresden Files here ready once I finish the "truck load" of public library books that all arrived at once (LOL).
