4 stars

I am still enjoying my reread of this series. In this book we get to see Harry riding a Zombie version of Sue the Tyrannosaurus from Chicago's Field Museum into battle. This is one of the books in the series where there seems to be a lot going on rather than one focused mystery. It's purpose seemed to be to serve the larger plot arc of the series with the main story line as a vehicle to do so. I miss a lot of the supporting characters that are off scene in this one, but it was nice getting to know Butters the mortician better. I am looking forward to continuing with the next one after a couple witch tagged books that actually contain witches.

annapi | 5097 comments I think this is my favorite of the series. Best opening scene, then best closing with the T-Rex!

Whoops, I'm mixing up the books. Best opening scene is book 6.

I just started reading book 6 and I have to agree the opening scene is great. Harry is providing some needed laughs.
