Blood Rites by Jim Butcher
Rate this book
Clear rating


Butcher has created such a vibrantly alive universe full of lore based on mythology and lore easy to recognize yet recreated by Butcher in such an original and charismatic way it is impossible for one to refer to any character or creature as stereotypical. He has built a system of the laws of magic so thoroughly fleshed out and logical it is easy to believe magic is real. And who doesn't love a wise-cracking Private-Eye . . . who just happens to be a 6 1/2 foot tall ass-kicking wizard.

Blood Rites is a bit slow in the beginning but has a good payoff at the end. This book seemed to be more about setting up the next book than about moving the big story along.
