** spoiler alert ** Oh my gosh! I knew from the synopsis of one of Butcher's other books that Harry had a brother, but I had no idea who it was. I was genuinely surprised and delighted that it turned out to be Thomas. I also loved how Harry got to "meet" his mother through Thomas. Murphy's character really develops in this installment too. Part of me is wondering if she and Harry will develop a romantic relationship and part of me wants them to stay friends. Murphy's mom was great.

Most of all, I liked the way the story ended. After everything he's been through in 6 novels, Harry deserves a little peace and happiness. Sure, he doesn't have a girl, but he has family and a puppy. (I can't wait to see what happens with the dog.) I think I'm going to take a little break before I read the next book. I want Harry to enjoy what he has for awhile before watching the author beat him up again.
