Rereading Blood Rites and Dead Beat again helped me gain new insight to Harry's character and principles. In Blood Rites, we see that Harry gains something that he's longed for family ~ a brother in Thomas Raith. Harry is also tested in this capacity too, how much does family mean to him and what he is willing to do. We also see the estrangement of Harry and his mentor McCoy which shakes the very foundation of everything that Harry believes in about magic and himself. In Dead Beat, we see another come to pass with many changes in Harry's life such as Thomas is still living with Harry and Murphy is going on a vacation with Kincaid much to Harry's surprise. An old enemy, Marva comes to town blackmailing Harry into doing what she wants or she'll harm Murphy and her career for good. Harry is caught between a rock and hard place though he needs his allies yet cannot afford to bring them into the situation either. We see new villianious characters come into play as well such as Cowl, Kumori, Grevane, Li Xian, and Corpsetaker. They are all after the same thing Power which leaves our beloved hero the only one able to help stop them. In Dead Beat, we see Waldo Butters take center stage thorough out the book learning how to cope with his fear and resolving to help Harry out in the very end of the book no matter what. It is such a great evolution of character that is like a lovable oaf in many ways.
