Alas. Dresden Files has been one of my must-read, this-is-how-it's-done, doesn't-get-any-better-than-this series---but this volume shows real signs that the author's run out of creative steam. It's long, it's repetitive, it's wordy, it takes 477 pages to advance the overall story arc a bare inch and I thought it ended in a predictable (and telegraphed!) way.

That "Author's Note" that's just a promo for his other series reads to me as if he's trying to wean his Dresden audience away to something different. Maybe the series is starting to look stale to him too?
