Aack! Goodread's short synopsis gives away a major plot point. Sigh. C'mon, guys... It wasn't that big of a surprise, but you could've been a little more discreet.

I'm working my way through the Dresden Files, beginning to end. This was a pretty good installment. One thing I'll hand to Mr. Butcher, he doesn't mind beating up his heroes and recurring characters. Big changes happen for Dresden and his girlfriend Susan. I also like that his characters have pasts that Mr. Butcher doesn't feel the need to completely spell out. I don't need to be spoon fed, I can figure some things out on my own.

I only gave this four stars because a couple of the plot points were a little transparent. C'mon Dresden. Answer Susan's phone calls! You know you should. Plus, remember she jogged your memory about a past magical bad guy in the beginning of the book, and the cops are acting skittish about said bad guy? It shouldn't have taken that long to put it together.

Anyway, still enjoyed the book a lot and I'm ready to move on to #4.
