really liked it
bookshelves: fantasy, sword-and-sorcery, 2008

Not a bad read. Not as much humor as the Dresen Files, but there were definitely still some moments of wit that brought a smile to my face. It was a good adventure, and the action, once started, kept up the pacing very well. It's hard to sustain that kind of tension for a long time, and Butcher did a great job with building and breaking the tension, only to build it again. I really only have one complaint- and that is too many characters were brought back from the brink of death too many times. I can understand one or two scrapes in the book, but some of these cahracters were ALWAYS near death then saved. Just kill 'em or don't have it be that bad, sheesh... But it did work in the context of the "furycrafting" system Butcher worked out. I like the idea of elemental magic, and it seemed to work out well in the book. I look forward to reading the next in the series.
